I would greatly appreciate it if this could be included in the next release. It would be very useful in my theme development.

I was hoping to find a more elegant Smarty solution and not a CSS or Javascript hack.
Is there really no way that this can achieved through Smarty?

Bump.
I have this same issue. I need my main menu block to output different html if it is left or right.

I even tried putting
<{assign var="Block_Position" value="canvas_left"}>
before the
<{foreach item=block from=$xoBlocks.canvas_left}>....
and
<{assign var="Block_Position" value="canvas_right"}>
befpre the
<{foreach item=block from=$xoBlocks.canvas_right}>.....
but no luck.

The main template "sees" <{$Block_Position}> but the block doesn't.

Is there any way to do this without a core hack?

A few things always were a problem for me when designing templates. I haven't made any themes for months now so tell me if any of these have been handled.

1. I would like a way for a block's template to know if the block is left, right or center. I always have trouble making blocks which should look good in the left column also look good in the center. I would prefer a <{if (block_position eq "center") }> or something like that.

2. Block Cloning. XOOPS should have this builtin by now (A huge Thumbs up if it is). I was able to create an entire newspaper site with only 3 modules and a bunch of cloned blocks. The whole cloning process seemed too hackish and necessary for a modern CMS. http://www.hotlikepepperradio.com/cms/

Believe it or not There are NO restrictions on what your site can look like using XOOPS however a lot of planning is required.

Check out these articles i wrote a long time ago on how to make a theme out of a html page
http://www.xoopstuner.com/xoops223a/m ... AMS/article.php?storyid=3
http://www.xoopstuner.com/xoops223a/m ... MS/article.php?storyid=12

It takes some effort but you can really unlock the true potential of xoops.

By the Way, you don't need any silly MODULES to add a page to xoops, just read this:

How do I add a new preference to the system module?

I figured out a simple (and much needed) hack to use any installed editor for your comments.
I simply borrowed a block of code from the awesome wiwimod module and pasted it into /include/comment_form.php; that part works well.
For the other part of the hack I could only hard-code the preferred editor or store a selection in a Module preference, so I had to hack each module which uses it.

How do I add a new preference to the system module?
(xoops 2.016)

Can you recommend a good reference?
dev.xoops just don't have enough of this kinda info.

So sorry for not being clear.
$_GET['Del'] is holding the id of the record to be deleted but the SQL statement never gets executed. It just throws back stuff like this:

error: DELETE FROM xoops2016_tutorial_myform WHERE asID='5'

That statement seems fine to me.

I'm finally doing my first module and ran into a SQL problem i just don't understand: The DELETE FROM command just don't seem to work.

if (isset($_GET['Del'])) {
    
//delete
    
$asID$_GET['Del'];
    
$query "DELETE FROM ".$xoopsDB->prefix("tutorial_myform")." WHERE asID='$asID' ";
    
$res=$xoopsDB->query($query);
    if(!
$res) {
        
$intro_text .= "error: $query";
    } else {
        
$intro_text .= "Record removed from DB!";
    }
}


INSERT and UPDATE queries work with very similar code blocks. I really need help with this one.
