I'm checking the news module 1.5 in a local server, on 2.0.16 XOOPS version.

I was proving the block that allows you to send news to digg, delicious... I`m not english speaker, and i wanted to add other sites like digg but in my language. I founded the file news_article.html in ../news/template/ whith the following code

<a target="_blank" title="<{$smarty.const._NW_BOOKMARK_TO_DELICIOUS}>" href="http://del.icio.us/post?url=<{$xoops_url}>/modules/news/article.php?storyid=<{$story.id}>&title=<{$encoded_title}>" title=""><img border="0" alt="" src="<{$xoops_url}>/modules/news/images/delicious.gif" /></a>&nbsp;
<a target="_blank" title="<{$smarty.const._NW_BOOKMARK_TO_DIGG}>" href="http://digg.com/submit?phase=2&url=<{$xoops_url}>/modules/news/article.php?storyid=<{$story.id}>" title=""><img border="0" alt="" src="<{$xoops_url}>/modules/news/images/diggman.gif" /></a>&nbsp;

I tryed to add a new site addíng other <a></a> tag, but when i prove the changes, nothing was different. There was the same sites as the beggining. Then i desinstalled and installed the module, with my changed news_article.html, but the result was the same. Finally, i deleted the news_article.html, desinstalled the module and installed again, and nothing crash, all works correctly then i suppossed that this file isn´t the one that i have to change. How can i do to add more sites to this block?

I forgot to say that i haven´t active the XOOPS cache and i clear the navigator cache to try.

Thanks, and excuse my english.

I read it, but it doesn't work to me.

I do this

1) Go to Xoops\modules\news\templates and take news_article.html (I don't delete the original file)

2) Change the file

3) Go to Xoops\themes\default\modules\news\templates and put the changed file in

4)Delete all the files in Xoops\templates_c except index.html

And doesn't work!

what am i doing bad?

It is because the path is wrong of where you have set the template that it doesn't work:

you have this: Xoops\themes\default\modules\news\templates

It will work if you set it up like this:


so if it were the news_article.html template it would be like this:


You do not include the templates folder when inserting the new template in the theme folder.
