Ok so here is my problem, I installed nco news centre yesterday so I can display news in my homepage which is in a block, it's something like the forums in the centre page. When I post news it's also bringing the default news block further up the page when I don't need it because the news is already displayed in my nco centre block so it means i've got 2 copies of news on my page. I wanted to know how I can get rid of the news module appearing on my homepage so I can just have my nco news block in place. I've tried setting another module to default but I don't want any module to appear as the default just my nco news centre block.

Thanks
Danny

I'm not familiar with the nco centre block, but I'd suspect there are instructions for handling this either in the download or in the support forums for that addon.

You might try overriding the number of news stories to appear on the front page to zero. This is set in the administration, preferences page, but it probably won't let you set it to zero. Just use phpMyAdmin to change the value of the storyhome field in the nuke_config table.

I checked in the admin panel then prefrences but in the options it only gives you 5,10,15,20,25,30 it doesn't have the option to pick 0 for number of pages to be displayed. Is there anywhere I can set it to 0?

Thanks
Danny

Another idea is to pick a different nuke module to be your HOME module. YOu could even create a new module directory with an index.php in it with something like this and then set it as your home module using "Put in Home" link within the modules administration:

Code:


<?php
if ( !defined('MODULE_FILE') ) { die('You can\'t access this file directly...'); }

require_once 'mainfile.php';
$module_name = basename(dirname(__FILE__));
$pagetitle = '- ' . $module_name;
include_once 'header.php';
echo '';
include_once 'footer.php';

?>


I haven't tested this, so not even sure the "echo" line is needed, but essentially this would be a blank module that is simply used to set up the header, the blocks and footer.

Well I don't know how to make a module would it not be easier to change the number of pages for stories/news to appear in the homepage? The lowest it has is 5 there is no option for 0, how could I set this to 0?

Thanks

Kguske, I tried this yeah, I set the value to 0 in the phpmyadmin table for nuke_config and when I went back to my homepage the boxes were still there and a drop down box appeared saying page 1 of 1, in the admin panel it does have 0 now in the make stories in home box but when I post news it's still appearing in my homepage when it is already in my news table box as you can see, here is my link to my site to look at it.

the 2nd box down is the one that keeps appearing.

Danny, I already gave you what you needed. Don't make it more difficult than it needs to be. If you look at your modules directory you see that you just need to create a few sub-directory, give it whatever name you want, but only use characters and no spaces. Then, create a file called index.php in that directory with the code that I already posted above.

The next time you click on the "modules" link within the administration control panel, this module will automatically show up in the list and then you can simply click the link "Put in Home".

You are done....

Ok so I did what you said Montego, I created a folder in modules, put the code in index.php file then went to modules in admin. I clicked put in home and now when you look at my homepage it pushed the right side blocks off the page for some reason, how do I get the blocks back?

Hi, yeah I looked at thepost and looked in my theme.php but the code it says change to already is what it supposed to be changed to so nothing else in that post that helps. Thanks for the link though.

danny234, sorry about that. Here is some amended code that should work on far more themes:

Code:


<?php
if ( !defined('MODULE_FILE') ) { die('You can\'t access this file directly...'); }

$index = 1;
define('INDEX_FILE', true);
require_once 'mainfile.php';
$module_name = basename(dirname(__FILE__));
$pagetitle = '- ' . $module_name;
include_once 'header.php';
echo '';
include_once 'footer.php';

?>


You should not have to modify your theme.php file, so make sure and put that back to the way it was.
