Themes: Applicable to all themes

Posted by: Will_Hon 2007/10/23 8:59:36 4936 reads Recently in This post, we discovered a technique that will be beneficial to all themes.

The gist of it is that, until now, themes have displayed the <{$xoops_contents}> regardless of whether or not there was content to be displayed.

The standard default theme, and every theme since has looked like this.

<div id="content">
<{
$xoops_contents}>
</
div>


Which left a rather sizable gap on your index if you did not have a module set as your start page.

if you replace that code with the following, <{$xoops_contents}> will only be displayed if and only if there is content to be displayed.

<{if $xoops_contents}>
<
div id="content">
<{
$xoops_contents}>
</
div>
<{/if}>
