I generally can make things work but must be missing something or just plain stupid. I can hack at php scripts to make it look and work the way I want but how can I have a php script be linked off the main menu. I was able to make an item on the main menu and now I am lost. Two questions: What do i need to do to link that main menu item to the php script, AND how do i make that script run inside the block I created?

i am running XOOPS 2.4.5, PHP 5.

Can some please point me in the right direction? Thank you in advance!

Hi:
I am a new user. Xoops has many roadblocks to doing the basic things. But I am sticking with it because it has tremendous potential. The major fault line is in documentation for the basics. I was able to code a pulldown menu from the files that I used in my "themes." It was not intuitive and I was not able to locate the names of files that link by default.

The file in my theme (darkforest) is named xo_globalnav in a folder called xotpl.

I have gone through many themes and none of them have basic instructions.

Good luck!

See this.
It may look simple, but depending on the PHP script, you have to hack it further for not providing a html - head section. This is already provided by the header.php
If the script uses login, mySQL. ..., it should be hacked further to rely on the login, ... of XOOPS.

can you show a generic code example of the XOOPS login showing the actual username and login variables that need to be used with php?

i.e.

//<?php echo $(what xoops variable goes here for username //of logged in member?);?>)

//<?php echo $(what xoops variable goes here for password //of logged in member?);?>)
