I want to create 2 new encylopedia moduals on my site (one can just replace the current one)

I need some of the visitor side text to be diffrent though. My initial thought is to just change the code where ever it says encylopedia_ to My new modual name_

I have done alot of reading and to be honest I am totaly confused and about the only thing I do understand is that I have to change code and sql

Making any mods to sql scares the heck out of me to be honest and I just know that if I try this I will kill my site.

Can someone give me real idiot proof directions?

Changing the names might work, especially if you create the necessary database tables with the changed names, too. If that's all you do, it shouldn't affect the rest of your site - at most it would cause the new module not to display correctly due to a parsing error or not update the tables correctly if they aren't created correctly.

Just a question, though, could you use different encyclopedias in the existing module? You can create multiple encyclopedias. Would that work?

Should be possible I know it works for reviews.
I used only phpMyAdmin to duplicate and rename the tables of my second reviews modul. It will not kill your site but the problem could be for example when you don´t change all links that you mix the entries of both modules. So backup, backup and backup Smile

basicly Everything Encylopidia does is exactly what I need. my problem is I want to convert it to be racing site driver points display

When you bring up encylopedia the top says

Your site: Encylopedia

I want to change it to say

Your Site: Track Points (or just points)

Then in the actual encylopedia block it says

List of available Encyclopedias in Your Site:

I want to change this to say

List of available divisions in Your Site:

At the bottom of this block it says

You're Administrator: following is the list of Inactive Encyclopedias:

I want to change it to say

You're Administrator: following is the list of Inactive Divisions:

Then when you chose an encylopedia (renamed to division) you see the title and you chose alphabeticaly. Can this be changed so that you could have 1 button (say in place of (A)) say YTD Points or total points another button that will say weekly results. When you hit total points it will show a page with text that will display the information when you click on weekly it will list the dates.

does this make sence?

just thought of somthing else that might work. Can I make some of the alphabet invisable? then I can just have the letters that are needed show up.

wrecit, I have not tested this, but you can give it a try (make sure you keep a backup of your original file Wink ):

=== OPEN FILE ===

modules/Encyclopedia/index.php

=== FIND ===

Within function alpha($eid), find this code here:

Code:


    while (list(, $ltr) = each($alphabet)) {
        $ltr = substr($ltr, 0, 1);
        $numrows = $db->sql_numrows($db->sql_query("SELECT * FROM ".$prefix."_encyclopedia_text WHERE eid='$eid' AND UPPER(title) LIKE '$ltr%'"));
        if ($numrows > 0) {
            echo "<a href=\"modules.php?name=$module_name&amp;op=terms&amp;eid=$eid&amp;ltr=$ltr\">$ltr</a>";
        } else {
            echo $ltr;
        }
        if ( $counter == round($num/2) ) {
            echo " ]\n<br />\n[ ";
        } elseif ( $counter != $num ) {
            echo "&nbsp;|&nbsp;\n";
        }
        $counter++;
    }


=== CHANGE TO ===

Code:


    while (list(, $ltr) = each($alphabet)) {
        $ltr = substr($ltr, 0, 1);
        $numrows = $db->sql_numrows($db->sql_query("SELECT * FROM ".$prefix."_encyclopedia_text WHERE eid='$eid' AND UPPER(title) LIKE '$ltr%'"));
        if ($numrows > 0) {
            echo "<a href=\"modules.php?name=$module_name&amp;op=terms&amp;eid=$eid&amp;ltr=$ltr\">$ltr</a>";
        } else {
            continue;
        }
        if ( $counter == round($num/2) ) {
            echo " ]\n<br />\n[ ";
        } elseif ( $counter != $num ) {
            echo "&nbsp;|&nbsp;\n";
        }
        $counter++;
    }

Montego that will work!!!! I looked at he code you changed and for some reason I understand what it does lol.

Look in modules/Encyclopedia/language/lang-english.php, assuming you are using English.

and this is why I am currently loading Raven to replace Platinum on my site that is schedualed to open in a week. Gremmie I was looking in the actual code for 4 hrs before seeing your sugestion and as you know I found everything that I want to edit and from the looks of it my text edits won't effect code.

I wish I had Raven and the Raven community 5 years ago. I might actualy know somthing now lol.

Thanks guys and gal's for all the help so far. Give me about a week and I will give you a peek at kart TV (my site) and I am planning on setting up a "shadow" site with the "racing package" that I will show off to you also.
