    Thumbs up Modified Portal Pages

    Let's starting a thread for modified vBA page.

    I made a 5 column page here.
    U can use the whole 5 columns but u can also choose to get the content left or right from the center column.

    Installation:

    1. Backup your adv_portal template
    2. Copy and paste the attached 5_column_portal_page.txt in your adv_portal template and save it.
    3. Add the columns a seen in the pic #5_column_portal_page_settings
    4. Customize your page by adding modules to it as seen on 5_column_portal_page_settings.layout.

    Great idea.
    I'll sticky this to see if we can get some others to share their layouts so hopefully it will help those who aren't familiar with HTML who are looking for a new layout.

    Sorry to bump this thread.

    I would like to know, how can I make a column which would span accross whole page (width="100%") and ideally it would stay above three columns (Left, Center and Right)?

    You would have to do this by changing your VB style.

    Hmm, that's odd.
    I changed each of my styles but, the top column that I added is pushing all of other column modules beneath and the order of modules is screwed, because all of modules are placed on top of the other and column alignment is lost

    Here is the code I added ( red )

    Code:
    <table align="center" class="page" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" width="100%">
    	<tr valign="top">
    		<if condition="$show['top_column']">
    			<td valign="top" width="100%" <if condition="$show['left_column'] OR $show['right_column']"> style="padding-$stylevar[center]: $vba_style[portal_colspacing]px"></if>
    				$home[topblocks]
    			</td>
    		</if> 
    		<if condition="$show['left_column']">
    			<td width="$vba_style[portal_leftcolwidth]"<if condition="$show['center_column'] OR $show['right_column']"> style="padding-$stylevar[right]: $vba_style[portal_colspacing]px"</if>>
    				$home[leftblocks]
    			</td>
    		</if>
    		<if condition="$show['center_column']">
    			<td valign="top">
    				$home[centerblocks]
    			</td>
    		</if>
    		<if condition="$show['right_column']">
    			<td valign="top" width="$vba_style[portal_rightcolwidth]"<if condition="$show['center_column'] OR $show['left_column']"> style="padding-$stylevar[left]: $vba_style[portal_colspacing]px"</if>>
    				$home[rightblocks]
    			</td>
    		</if>
    	</tr>
    </table>
    
    
    $footer
    
    </body>
    </html>

    I must still work on this, because currently I figured out that vBA's module_wrapper was causing the problem of breaking up the design.

    Switchign it off solved my issue.

    Questions about modified pages/layouts are posted here almost weekly.

    In nearly every case we see " but I have used the Search button....."

    Here is a list (not complete) of threads relating to alternate layouts for vBa Cmps.

    It should be noted that Brian has provided the tools to make your forum unique with this CMPS script and support here is superb ,BUT, if you wish to go further and customise the script then you cannot expect Brian to give all his time or support for this.

    These threads were found in less than 5 minutes using the SEARCH system, making use of this COULD save you hours of waiting and frustration :

    If you have developed/created a new layout for your forum perhaps you could add the information/ instructions here ?
