Re: Theme Design Q & A - Ask your questions here
I am using the exnews theme and want to modify it. In postnuke, i could add blocks, which seems to be different from xoops. postnuke blocks contained specific functions that when placed on a page, would alter the layout. XOOPS seems to rely on the templates more....
Sorry, getting off track in my head.
My question is, on my site, www.ontheshelves.com
I want to split the main column into two rows, in the top row, I want to add three columns and force main features or the newest posts from different categories to go there. I am looking for a function like what www.ugo.com
Since I am trying to develop a news site, I want a splashy, catching main feature, three "hot" topic fields and then my news listings underneath.
I am more than willing to do the work, actually,id prefer it, so that I can learn, but guidance is always helpful and appreciated, since I am new to xoops. My html skills are fine and i can create any images I might need, but the xoops/php coding is an issue, as well as how it works with the themes...
Thanks, this is a great idea for us who need the resource.
