add news block next to gallery table
« on: January 27, 2006, 08:03:21 pm »

Hello,

I would like to add a news block on my site, right besides the main gallery table (original - http://www.b514.com/images/tmp/b514-org.jpg, what i need is > http://www.b514.com/images/tmp/b514-mod.jpg). I know I can do it with anycontent.php but I dont know which files need to be edited.

Thank you very much in advance!

This is possible, but not with anycontent. Search the board for "custom header / footer"

thank you!

I searched as you told me and I saw a lot of content which refers to adding a custom header or footer. My request fits after the header and infact I believe is has to be inside the {gallery} (as i want the news block to be side by side with the gallery content table). Please take a look at the images i posted above and let me know roughly how I can do that. Some links to forum topics dealing with that will also do the job. I appreciate all your help! Great support!

Can this thread be moved into the support forum for 1.4.x. I upgraded my gallery to 1.4.3 so this request is still valid but for the new version. I tried to add iframe code into the theme.php which worked but wasnt able to create a table with two colums (one used by the news iframe and the other by the category table)

Any suggestions anyone? thanks for all the help!

Add this into your theme's theme.php.

Code: [Select]
function theme_display_cat_list($breadcrumb, &$cat_data, $statistics)
{
    global $template_cat_list, $lang_cat_list;
    if (count($cat_data) > 0) {
echo '<table width="100%"><tr><td valign="top">';
starttable("100%");
echo <<< EOT

<tr>
<td class="tableh1"><b>News</b></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td class="tableb">
Your content here
</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td class="tableh1">&nbsp;</td>
</tr>

EOT;

endtable();
echo '</td><td>';
        starttable('100%');
        $template = template_extract_block($template_cat_list, 'header');
        $params = array('{CATEGORY}' => $lang_cat_list['category'],
            '{ALBUMS}' => $lang_cat_list['albums'],
            '{PICTURES}' => $lang_cat_list['pictures'],
            );
        echo template_eval($template, $params);
    }

    $template_noabl = template_extract_block($template_cat_list, 'catrow_noalb');
    $template = template_extract_block($template_cat_list, 'catrow');
    foreach($cat_data as $category) {
        if (count($category) == 3) {
            $params = array('{CAT_TITLE}' => $category[0],
                    '{CAT_THUMB}' => $category['cat_thumb'],
                '{CAT_DESC}' => $category[1]
                );
            echo template_eval($template_noabl, $params);
        } elseif (isset($category['cat_albums']) && ($category['cat_albums'] != '')) {
            $params = array('{CAT_TITLE}' => $category[0],
                '{CAT_THUMB}' => $category['cat_thumb'],
                '{CAT_DESC}' => $category[1],
                '{CAT_ALBUMS}' => $category['cat_albums'],
                '{ALB_COUNT}' => $category[2],
                '{PIC_COUNT}' => $category[3],
                );
            echo template_eval($template, $params);
        } else {
            $params = array('{CAT_TITLE}' => $category[0],
                '{CAT_THUMB}' => $category['cat_thumb'],
                '{CAT_DESC}' => $category[1],
                '{CAT_ALBUMS}' => '',
                '{ALB_COUNT}' => $category[2],
                '{PIC_COUNT}' => $category[3],
                );
            echo template_eval($template, $params);
        }
    }

    if ($statistics && count($cat_data) > 0) {
        $template = template_extract_block($template_cat_list, 'footer');
        $params = array('{STATISTICS}' => $statistics);
        echo template_eval($template, $params);
    }


    if (count($cat_data) > 0){
endtable();
echo '</td></tr></table>';
}
        echo template_extract_block($template_cat_list, 'spacer');
}

That should get you most of the way there.

Thank you so much!!! But there is a little problem... I removed the code for category list  and breadcrumbs and pasted this one instead. However I get a blank page with nothing rendered on it. Did I do anything wrong?

I removed this
Code: [Select]
// HTML template for the category list
$template_cat_list = <<<EOT
<!-- BEGIN header -->
        <tr>
                <td class="tableh1" width="80%" align="left"><b>{CATEGORY}</b></td>
                <td class="tableh1" width="10%" align="center"><b>{ALBUMS}</b></td>
                <td class="tableh1" width="10%" align="center"><b>{PICTURES}</b></td>
        </tr>
<!-- END header -->
<!-- BEGIN catrow_noalb -->
        <tr>
                <td class="catrow_noalb" colspan="3"><table border="0"><tr><td align="left">{CAT_THUMB}</td><td align="left"><span class="catlink"><b>{CAT_TITLE}</b></span>{CAT_DESC}</td></tr></table></td>
        </tr>
<!-- END catrow_noalb -->
<!-- BEGIN catrow -->
        <tr>
                <td class="catrow" align="left"><table border="0"><tr><td>{CAT_THUMB}</td><td><span class="catlink"><b>{CAT_TITLE}</b></span>{CAT_DESC}</td></tr></table></td>
                <td class="catrow" align="center">{ALB_COUNT}</td>
                <td class="catrow" align="center">{PIC_COUNT}</td>
        </tr>
        <tr>
            <td class="tableb" colspan="3">{CAT_ALBUMS}</td>
        </tr>
<!-- END catrow -->
<!-- BEGIN footer -->
        <tr>
                <td colspan="3" class="tableh1" align="center"><span class="statlink"><b>{STATISTICS}</b></span></td>
        </tr>
<!-- END footer -->
<!-- BEGIN spacer -->
        <img src="images/spacer.gif" width="1" height="7" border="" alt="" /><br />
<!-- END spacer -->

EOT;
// HTML template for the breadcrumb
$template_breadcrumb = <<<EOT
<!-- BEGIN breadcrumb -->
        <tr>
                <td colspan="3" align="left" class="tableh1"><span class="statlink"><b>{BREADCRUMB}</b></span></td>
        </tr>
<!-- END breadcrumb -->
<!-- BEGIN breadcrumb_user_gal -->
        <tr>
                <td colspan="3" class="tableh1">
                <table width="100%" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="0">
                <tr>
                        <td align="left"><span class="statlink"><b>{BREADCRUMB}</b></span></td>
                        <td align="right"><span class="statlink"><b>{STATISTICS}</b></span></td>
                </tr>
                </table>
                </td>
        </tr>
<!-- END breadcrumb_user_gal -->

EOT;

and replaced it with your code.

I didn't say to do that, I said to add that code into your theme's theme.php.

Why do you have so much in there ?

You already have a theme_display_cat_list() function in there, you need to remove that or merge your changes with mine.

you are right. foolish of me. I corrected it and its working!!!! now there is cosmetic work to be done :) Thanks a lot!!! take a look if you like http://www.bogho.com/b514/index.php this is my test platform before I really upgrade B514 ... :)

I am going to add an iframe with a news file which I can update regularly. How can I make the news table to be the same height as the category table, and the space between them to be 1 px.. i.e to look like ONE multifunctional table?..This is no rush so whenever you have time.

THANKS A LOT for all the help!!!  :) :) :)
