Different layout only on main page
« on: January 26, 2014, 11:10:14 am »

Hi,
Layout of my website is as follows: on left Menu, and center/right is Content ({GALERY}).
This shape is fine for albums and photos.

My problem is that I would like to have only on main page also second MENU on right (Left: Menu | Center: Contnent | Right: Menu).
I tried to create simple table in template.html but this solution keeps Menu on right also for albums and photos pages.

May I ask you for help?

My website is: www.autoarchiwum.pl

Instead of adding the third column to template.html I'd add a new token (e.g. {RIGHT_COLUMN}). This token will be replaced later in theme.php with the help of the function pageheader.

Copy the function pageheader from themes/sample/theme.php to your theme's theme.php file, if it doesn't exist. Then, find
Code: [Select]
$template_vars = CPGPluginAPI::filter('theme_pageheader_params', $template_vars);and above, add something like
Code: [Select]
    global $CPG_PHP_SELF;
    if ($CPG_PHP_SELF == 'index.php') {
        $template_vars['{RIGHT_COLUMN}'] = <<< EOT
            <td>
                Right column here
            </td>
EOT;
    } else {
        $template_vars['{RIGHT_COLUMN}'] = '';
    }

Thank you

I made according to your proposal but there is mistake:

1) when in template.html is
Quote
{RIGHT_COLUMN}
{MESSAGE_BLOCK}
{GALLERY}

or

Quote
{MESSAGE_BLOCK}
{RIGHT_COLUMN}
{GALLERY}


see file 1.jpg



2) when in template.html is
Quote
{MESSAGE_BLOCK}
{GALLERY}
{RIGHT_COLUMN}

see file 2.jpg

I assumed you already added a third column to your template.html file. Obviously this is not the case, so we priorly need to figure out how to add the new column in general.

As you use a customized theme, please attach it as zip file to your next reply if you need help to add the column.

I assume it's this code block?
Code: [Select]
      <!--
      <table>
      <tr>
      <td width="100%" valign="top">
      {GALLERY}
      </td>
      <div  class="links">
      <td width="350">
     
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://www.rssfeedconverter.com/services/rss-converter/52e536215ae64/snippet2531-20140126"></script>

      </div>
      </td> </tr> </table>

     
-->

That's exactly the code you need to insert instead of
Code: [Select]
            <td>
                Right column here
            </td>

But your solution keeps third column for all pages?
I need it only on main page (home). Therefore you sent proposal of code to theme.php and token {right_column}

Then I put token to <td> (<td>{right_column}</td>) then center column is empty and all content from center is placed in right column

I don't know what "main page" means for you. The third column is currently applied to all index.php pages. If that's not what you want, we need to adjust the code, e.g. to display the third column just if the category id is "0".

I know exactly what you want to accomplish. As it seems that you already had a working third column (which is displayed on all pages), please restore that version of your theme and attach the whole theme (not just template.html) as zip file to your next reply.

Attached are the modified template.html and theme.php files. As {RIGHT_COLUMN} is placed after {GALLERY}, we need to adjust pagefooter instead of pageheader. Sorry for the confusion.

Open theme.php, find
Code: [Select]
    global $CPG_PHP_SELF;
    if ($CPG_PHP_SELF == 'index.php') {
and replace with
Code: [Select]
    global $CPG_PHP_SELF, $cat;
    if ($CPG_PHP_SELF == 'index.php' && !$cat) {
