Thread: News / Announcements Modification !!

  1. #1

    Cool News / Announcements Modification !!

    Impressed by the great support Brain offers, I dared to ask this question , hoping it would be answered ...

    I dont want to fetch the news / announcements from a forum. Instead I just want to type the news so that it would be displayed in the portal without putting it on the forum. I also wish to integrate a side image when i make put the news on the portal

    Any possibility of that happening ??

    If not that.. then how do i put a image which should appear on the left side of the post on the portal after i fetch it from the forum.

    I know its complex... but if you can answer this, i'd be honoured.

    If you are confused as to what i am refering to .. .. ...

    Notice, at .. http://www.vbadvanced.com/products.php

    you would make a custom block, insert whatever you want and place it in the center column of the vBa page.

    go to style manager, click add a template.

    call the new template adv_portal_custom1

    put the following code in it :
    Code:
    <tr>
    <td class="$getbgrow">
    your content here
    </td>
    </tr>
    then go to the vbacmps in admincp and add a new module, then template.

    call it what ya want and where it asks for template put : custom1

    check appropriate boxes.

    done deal.

    I must be missing something here, but in my Style Manager, I dont' have the option to 'add a template'.

    I'm testing vBull 3.5.3 and vBadvanced 2.1.0 if this makes any difference.

    Thanks in adavance.

    Admin CP => vBa CMPS => Add Module => Template Module

    Just go there instead, and insert the code da prez gave you for the template.

    can this not taken further to edit the text easier than creating a new module every time??

    An easier way would be to make a forum up lock and make it non postable and not in the drop down list.

    So now you have a useless forum but you can use it for announcements and make the announcements news, Its what i do for important things that need to go at the top of the page.

    This is a great and simple mod - thanks

    One stupid question.....how do I add a line break? The text ends up bunched together.

    Is it also possible to add an image?

    Thanks again - appreciate the assistance.

    you just add it as you would if you were making a html page.

    for example a line break is:
    Code:
    <br>
    and to add an image it is:
    Code:
    <img src="your image location" border="0">

    Whats the difference between this, and adding a page (HTML) in the vbadvanced menu? is not the same result?

    How do you edit the content of this custom1? I've got it installed, but haven't a clue as to where to make actual announcement. Thanks.
