Re: X-Forum 4.10

Hi, I uploaded this module yesterday it looks pretty good, I especially like the .htaccess feature to make the url's more search engine friendly. Only thing is I cant seemt o get the htaccess to work properly.

I changed htaccess.txt to .htaccess and uploaded and I turned on the htaccess feature in preferences but all I get is an 404 not found error.

Anychance of a small tutorial on how to get it working properly? I do have mod-rewrite turned on on my server as I am using the mod-rewrite function with article 2.00RC urls.

Cheers.

Re: Article 2.00RC block not showing

OK, dismiss my origianl post I didnt see that there was another folder within templates that had block template files DOH!

Anyway now i have a new problem, I cannot get the articles block to show at all (_block_article.html), the thing is I did have it showing before, on the top page with 2 test articles on it with no problems.

All I did was add some proper articles I noticed they were not showing in the block, I deleted the test articles and then the block stopped showing.

I had alook at the debug mode(both XOOPS and article debug)and I do not see any errors, the debug mode is showing the block as being there is it shows up within the list of blocks but I cant get it to show on the page.

I have deleted and and re-uploaded the template file, checked permissions, checked block settings, checked the database, deleted cache files and I just cant figure it out. I cant even get the blocktitle to show, nothing. Other article blocks seem to show up OK.

Anyone got any ideas?

Re: How to modify the main menu block?

What do you mean by modify? do you mean the style/look of the links? if so look for this section of code in your themes style.css
#mainmenu a
#mainmenu a:hover
#mainmenu a.menuTop 
#mainmenu a.menuSub
#mainmenu a.menuMain


and you can modify the css to have different colors, etc.

If you mean modify the names of the links goto system admin>system option>modules and there you can change the name of modules and set there weight within the main menu. you can also instlal a module like multimenu which allows you to link to specific pages in your site rather than just module pages.

Article 2.00RC

Hi, I have just downloaded Article 2.00RC by phppp, cloned/renamed it and installed it on a site I am working on and I have to say it is a great module, exactly what I am looking for for posting news, I especially like the fact you can upload an image for each news item and have it dispaly next to the item in the article list.

The only thing is a can not get any content to show for the blocks and I am wondering if it is because there doesnt seem to be any templates for the blocks? Ive tried smarty debug and php debug but I couldnt see any errors coming up.

If it is the lack of block templates has anyone made any templates for the blocks(recent news block), I am able to modify existing templates slightly but creating an entire template is beyond the scope of my knowledge.

Hope someone can help.
