Placing blocks

I did a search here about placing blocks but havent come up with anything...

I'm trying to place a custom block at the middle bottom of all pages. I set the weight to 99 and the News is 1 and my customer block still appears first on the page. Is it possible to move blocks to the bottom? Any guidance would be great ;)

thanks guys

Re: Placing blocks

You basically have Left, right, center-center, center-left and center-right blocks to position your blocks.

The placement of center-center, center-left and center-right blocks relative to each others and to the main contents of the page is defined in the theme's theme.html file.

Re: Placing blocks

Is there anythign else specific I need to do to edit the theme.html file?

I moved the code block around so that the Center right would display in the bottom middle of the design table but it dosn't seem to take. Even editing the footer of the theme.html didn't work. Antyhing else in XOOPS that I have to configure?

Re: Placing blocks

You may need to change this in the general settings: "Update module template .html files from themes/your theme/templates directory?"
