Topic: Miniportal problem...layout.

Okey first of all i´m runnin the site http://cssforumet.frac.dk and I think the punBB forum is great. Now for my problem.

I´m trying to convert http://cssforumet.frac.dk to miniportal. I´ve done the miniportal guide located at punres.org with sucess but i would like to change the layout abit. My testsite before implementation is located here http://testforumet.frac.dk

I´ve done som spying at http://www.pluriservices.net/ and this is how I would like my site layuout to look aswell. I´ve tried to edit the main.tpl without any sucess and I´m really lost here...so how do I put the "Welcome bla bla bla" in between the "whos online blocks located at the right and the left? My main.tpl looks like this: (sorry for my english hehe)

Re: Miniportal problem...layout.

Here is my main.tpl. I use Miniportal.

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">

"Removed because it did not help"

Re: Miniportal problem...layout.

Maybe I didn´t explain that well. Your page are using the orginal miniportal? That one works fine for me also. The thing is that I want to have a column to the left and the right...you only have a column to the left. Do you follow now?

Re: Miniportal problem...layout.

so you need a 3col.css with that:

#header {
    border: 1px solid #cecea5;
    background: #d7dabd;
}

#content {
    width: 100%;
    float: right;
    margin-left: -150px;
}
#container {
    width: 100%;
    float: left;
    margin-right: -200px;
}
#main {
    margin-left: 150px;
    margin-right: 200px;
}
#left {
    width: 140px;
    float: left;
}
#right {
    width: 190px;
    float: right;
}
#footer {
    border: 1px solid #cecea5;
    background: #d7dabd;
}
.clearing {
    height: 0;
    clear: both;
}
p.postedby {clear:both}

It's what i'm using for pluriservices.net

Ludo,

Re: Miniportal problem...layout.

Ludo: That didn´t solve my problem either. Ehm I like the miniportal when the left and for me the right block are "fixed" and the middle ("main") section changes. I´m really new to all this....haven´t seen <div> before haha...but I think I´ve solved the issue. If you would like to see my progress visit http://www.testforumet.frac.dk Below is my new main.tpl (I will update this code later )

2005-01-21 23:01 main.tpl code updated...
The above problem is now solved (as you can see in the code below) The page is slowly developing but I´ve noticed a new problem. If you visit http://testforumet.frac.dk and take a look at the top banner. There´s a white gap between the banner and the absolut top...All of my margins are set to "0" except in the *.css file located att style/kontrast.css. If I change padding to 0px 6px the gap dissipears but it also changes the paddings in the forum negative...is there a way to solve this?

kontrast.css below

/* 7. SPACING FOR TABLES */
/****************************************************************/

.pun TH, .pun TD {PADDING: 4px 6px}
.pun TD P {PADDING: 5px 0 0 0}

Re: Miniportal problem...layout.

I´m also trying to add data from the extern.php into main.tpl...but I don´t really get it....tried the search function all evning but I´m really stuck on this one...plz help me.

For example I would like to add this to my miniportal http://www.testforumet.frac.dk/extern.p … mp;show=10

If you visit the testpage http://testforumet.frac.dk you´ll find the recent topics at the bottom, but just the box...no topics in it?? I´ve added the code below to the main.tpl near the end. (after the last </table> in the code above)

<div class="block">
        <h2 class="block2"><span>Recent</span></h2>
        <div class="box">
            <div class="inbox">
                <?php include('http://www.testforumet.frac.dk/extern.php?action=new&show=10'); ?>     
            </div>
        </div>
    </div>

Re: Miniportal problem...layout.

Post the here.php that you are using.

I just changed my test site with your link and my here.php.... Worked fine.

Re: Miniportal problem...layout.

It looks like this...

<?php
include('http://www.testforumet.frac.dk/extern.php?action=active');
?>

Re: Miniportal problem...layout.

Check out www.dev.marine-hunters.co.uk

Re: Miniportal problem...layout.

How did you do that...?I t really works for you :S What code did you use and were did you put it?

This link works  http://testforumet.frac.dk/extern.php?action=active ...but how come it doesn´t work when I´m implementing it in php.

Re: Miniportal problem...layout.

Here is what I have...

my here.php is

General
<ul>
<?php
include('http://www.dev.marine-hunters.co.uk/extern.php?action=new&fid=48,42,43,45,41,40,49,50,51,56,58,65&show=5')

?></ul><br />Counter Strike Source
<ul>
<?php
include('http://www.testforumet.frac.dk/extern.php?action=active');
?></ul>

and my main.tpl contains

<div class="blocks">
            <h2><span>Recent Posts</span></h2>
            <div class="box">
            <div class="inbox">
            <pun_include "here.php">

Hope this helps...

Re: Miniportal problem...layout.

I´ve copied you code and it´s pertty weird...

If you take a look at my site http://testforumet.frac.dk I can link to your recent topics and you can link to mine...but I can´t link to my own. Hmm any suggesions?

Still gets the same error code as above (of course on a different line)

Re: Miniportal problem...layout.

I am currently at work and the page will not load... Just sits there for about 5 minutes then gives you the usual page not found error.

Will try again from home when I go on a break shortly...

So as you can see...your extern.php does work but not my own?

Re: Miniportal problem...layout.

Who is your supplier?

I have had this problem before... then a day or two later it suddenly worked. My supplier could not give a reason behind it.

Personally I would say it is 100% the machine where the site is sitting? but dont ask me what.

Re: Miniportal problem...layout.

Well a question came up as I was looking into the index.php (using miniportal) At the end there is a line "echo pun_news(16);" I´m no programmmer what so ever but is it possible to do something like this:

Put it inside a table?

<table>
echo pun_news(16);
</table>

or

...inside divs?

<div>
echo pun_news(16);
</div>

I´ve noticed that it doesn´t work if I do as above...
