Did anybody come up with an answer for this? I'm getting the same error.

I've seen this already, when I was looking for something else, but now that I want it...sigh.

What file do I need to edit to adjust the size of the left and right columns on the main page? I want to make the blocks a few pixels smaller so that the actual content won't be so compacted.

Sorry I'm so dumb

Placing content within a module?

I'm a newbie, so I don't even know if I can ask the question correctly, so I'll explain what I want to do.

I have a Content Module (Edito) that has three pages. I want to place another layer of content into one of those pages, but keep it contained within that central content area.

To further clarify, you can check out my site (www.burning-river.com). If you check out "Burning River Roster", I want to be able to create a page for each of those bands. I'd still like to keep the Roster page with the two other "About Burning River" pages as opposed to setting it up in a different module with a different block.

Make sense?

Doable?

Thanks.

Highlander, you're a lazy man's savior! It makes for some sloppy code (since it's now one giant run-on line of HTML tags) but it worked great. Once I get everything up and running I'll be revisiting some of these pages to play with using CSS to do it correctly, but for the time being it works!

Sunsnapper: question on relative placement (I've never quite gotten my brain around this). That basically places it where it would normally and then moves it however far you specify, right? If so, isn't it vulnerable to varying display sizes?

Thanks again for all the help everybody.

Can I insert the CSS code into the WYSIWYG? Or do I need to edit the files in the theme or module(s)? I admit it...I'm an old-timer who still uses tables (heck, I just broke myself out of using frames). and my CSS skills are weak to say the least.

Also, when determining the pixels for absolute placement, is it within the entire screen or just the center section that the module is displaying its info in? Will it get screwed up based on screen/display sizes?

Sorry for all the questions...

I've been searching for an answer and all I've managed to find is a few references to "being careful" when creating content that is laid out with tables in Xoops. My only remaining problem is that there is a GIANT gap above the table. This has happened in every module I've tried (TinyContent, AMS and Edito to name a few).

Any suggestions?

Thanks.

Thanks! AMS is (nearly) perfect. There are a couple of tweaks I've been trying and I figured I'd ask here since you were familiar with module.

How can I change the way articles are listed? Specifically, how can I change the order in which they are listed (I'd like to list them alphabetically) and is there a way I can list just the title? I'm using AMS (2.2) as a Reviews module and I love the jumpbox for the categories and just about everything else - I'd just like to fit more of them on the page without making it look as cluttered.

Thanks.

Multi-Layered HTML content

Can anyone recommend a good module for creating multi-layered HTML content? Specifically, I want to create a link/block on the main page that will take users to a Reviews page, which will be broken into (for instance) CDs, shows and movies and from there they can view a particular review. I installed and played with ArMS 0.4, but it was a bit heavy-handed and not easy for the average viewer to navigate, particularly if I took the link from the Main Menu. I DID like the jumpbox (for those of you who don't know the module, this allows the user to jump to a specific section), but it invariably took me to a 404 page.

Any suggestions or comments are both welcomed and appreciated.

Thanks, from an increasingly annoying newbie.

Multiple instances of a module

Can I create multiple instances of the same module? For instance, if I'm using Tiny Content or another one of the HTML page modules and want to break them down into categories, each with a distinct Block on the main page can I do this or do I need to install multiple modules?

Thanks.
