How do I put the contents of any block into the top header bar. For exazmple, I used this news scroller block template code and inserted it in my theme.html in the header bar, but it doesnt work.








<{foreach item=news from=$block.stories}>
<{$news.title}> |
<{/foreach}>


Any advise on this please???

Thanks

<{foreach item=news from=$block.stories}>
<{$news.title}> |
<{/foreach}>

All of the above is php code and you are putting it into an html file. You will need to use php includes to get this code to work.

Plus, I'd put your site's full url in the link instead of <($xoops_url)>

you can't load modultemplates within your theme this way. To let data out of modules be displayed in your blocks .. some script has to be load.

You may position a [free] themeblock at header within your theme and let your wanted block appear there...[using blockadmin]

Not all used smartys are available everywhere ..

Re: block contents in top header bar????

Erhm... CBlue... I hate to correct you like this, but it isn't php code. It's Smarty code. In a Smarty template (sowwy )

The problem is not the code, but the fact that the very first line takes an array ($block.stories) which is not filled with values.

The values are in the <{foreach item=block from=$xoopslblocks}> (or something like that) in your theme.html

The XOOPS theme system is not really geared for individual placement of individual blocks apart from the areas, which are pre-defined (left, right, center-center, center-left, center-right) so what you need is to define a new area (header, perhaps) and change the core files regarding block placement, adding the header area to the selectable options in system admin -> blocks

A little tough to do, though, so I wouldn't recommend that you do it unless you know PHP rather well.

Theme.html has lots of smarty tags and php already, whats different here?

Oh yeah - as Michael suggests, you can change your theme to take an existing block area - e.g. center-center - and place it in the header area. Then position the block, you want in the header area, as the only center-right block on your site, and you should accomplish the same.

This means that in my little example, you should move the code-block

            <{foreach 
item=block from=$xoops_ccblocks}>
              <{include 
file="default/theme_blockcenter_c.html"}>
            <{/foreach}>
            
up to the header area in your theme.html

I learn something new everyday! I didn't realize you could put a block in the theme.html file.
