I would like to get RID of the left block entirely and make the forums look more like the traditional php as far as size goes.....meaning leave the tables at 100 %, but instead of having the block on the left....i want it on the right, so that the full forum is viewable from the start, and if you scroll to the right, then u can see all the information on the block bar....

also...i would like to know, how to set a top block much like at http://www.mindhealth.ca/ with forums, registration and all that underneath my banner...?

can anyone help me? get at me on aim - trealwhiteknite
or reply here and i will be most grateful....
my forum tho very bare (i am just starting out) is here..

All you need to do is edit theme.html. See the Theme development wiki link on the left.

Yes theme html is the one.

To get rid of the left block completely one way to go is to add an "IF" command i.e

The left block will have no menus showing if you set this up in blocks admin, but will still be blocking a "100%" view, with the space still visible where the blocks would be--to overcome this you need to add an "IF" command to your "leftblocks" code in your theme.html file--something like this:






<{if $xoops_lblocks}>



<{foreach item=block from=$xoops_lblocks}>
<{include file="x2t/theme_blockleft.html"}>
<{/foreach}>


<{/if}>


Look for:

<{if $xoops_lblocks}>

leftblocks code in here

<{/if}>


Also if you look for the imago-04 theme, and have a look at the theme.html, this will show you a way to have all your blocks (right and left) appear on the right.

=================================================

can u expand upon that? ^

i get the other tho.....i'm going to go and add an "if" command right now to see if it works....but i would like to make the RIGHT block show up on the forums site, and right now i don't even have one showing up, even tho i set menus for the right block, the right block only shows up on my main page, not my forums page, why is that?

thank you for your help and patience thus far..

hey suicyde,

i visited your site and noted you are using XOOPS 1.3.7, as i recall. i am using 2.0.5. essentially, i am not too familiar with that version in terms of admin. point is i have obviously read your posts and will try to assist you if i can. have you thought about upgrading your site?
