How can new text be added?
« on: January 29, 2005, 01:34:30 pm »

Hi,

First of all it may be useful to know that I know HTML but not PHP.

How would I go about adding new text to individual pages ???
I managed to add new links in the themes.php file with know problems but if I add any other text it obviously shows up in all the other pages as well.

For example how could I add text to show up in the home page only but know others, or say only the section where you can comment on an image ect. Basically i'm trying to add individual content (text or other) to individual pages.

I have a good idea how to do this on a HTML only based site but not on a PHP site.

Any help that can be offered is very much appreciated indeed :)

Thanks,

Jay

use anycontent.php to display content on the index page. Add a switch (conditional) statement if it is only meant to show on certain  pages. You're looking for dynamic content, which can only be accomplished using PHP (html alone won't do), so you'll have to look into php as well, sorry.

You can just edit your template.htm file ! It is in the Themes folder (choose the theme you are using) and then you edit the html template.

you can edit that file, but content from template.html won't be dynamic, but static, i.e. it will be visible at all times.

Or you go to the miniCMS thread on the modifications board and see if that might be what your looking for.
