You need to share more details to help solve the problem. If that were me, I would start looking into the way the theme implements the blocks, especially the Smarty tags <{if}> and the <{foreach}> as these are used to display and loop through the blocks.

To understand more about the Smarty tags in the themes, this might help: Anatomy of the Default Theme

You might also need to clear the cached files.

This might help: [howto] empty link in mainmenu

Although editing the template might do the trick for you, but adding an empty module for some customized blocks can be more 'powerful'.

Search for editing Main Menu template if you just want to add an extra link.

Use <address>/user.php and click on the Administration Menu in the User Menu block to get into the Admin Control Panel.

Hi bbgds,

Got your email. Here is the code in one of the blocks in my Topics Block module:

<div style="padding-bottom: 5px;">
<
a href="<{$xoops_url}>/modules/news/index.php?storytopic=2">News</a>&nbsp;|&nbsp;
<
a href="<{$xoops_url}>/modules/news/index.php?storytopic=13">PhilHealth</a></div>
<{foreach 
item=item from=$block.items}>
<
div style="padding-bottom: 3px;">» <a href="<{$xoops_url}>/modules/news/article.php?storyid=<{$item.id}>" style="font-weight: normal;"><{$item.title}></a><!-- (<{$item.time}>) --></div>
<{/foreach}>


Basically, I hard-coded the name of Category into each block I am using. But you need to let the <{foreach}> do its own looping to get the news items displayed. I am not sure if the foreach you used and the Smarty tags in there are from the Topics Block module.

Here is a screenshot of my Block Settings:

Hope this helps.

Yup, 4 of those blocks use Topics Block. I group 2-3 similar News Categories together. Topics Block allows you to use 1 or more categories per block. I customized the block templates a bit to show which categories are grouped together but that should be easy with HTML.

I never tried Multimenu, but I hear that it is good. It is easy to create a new block following the HTML format of the Main Menu or User Menu and just put that block under them. It won't be dynamic, but it works.

The reason why I think we need to clone is because we still want to be able to display recent news (like the recent news block) for each category seperately on our Front Page.


You can implement this using Topics Block module. I still use News 1.1 and that is what I use to implement that kind of display. You can check out http://pinoy.md to see it in action.

Go to System Admin -> Find Users. Just at the top you will see how many Active and Inactive Users you have. To get more details, choose 'Inactive Users Only' in the Type of users to show.

You need to edit that from within System Ad -> Templates. You might need to clone the template set first. Do a search on editing and cloning templates.

I noticed the same thing about a few weeks ago. I think it is a feature to help maintain layout in the site since the indentation of threaded forums might go overboard or something like that.

Don't know if there is a hack for this, but I am fine with this right now so for the moment I have no complaints.
