Hello @all

I'm working on the themecp panel to use with themes i early ported over to ravennuke.

I've tweaked the themes so that it is posseble to either show a center up or a center down block to the right side of my theme for example:

center up block
leftblock||rightblock
center down block

Or simply see here Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login!
however i want to be able to override the default settings and show a particular block in the original center position.

For that i require to retrieve the block's name

Code:


head();
include_once 'includes/counter.php';
if (defined('HOME_FILE')) {
   message_box();
  if ($themeCB_Top == 0) *** make an AND + block name here*** {
    blocks('Center');
   }
}

So as you might notice if set the $themeCB_Top to 0 ( inside the theme.php)
It will show the original methode.

Very interesting idea and concept and I like it very much. I am thinking if it were me to make for bettor dynamics why not make a 5th block function called content blocks (or something like that) then if necessary modify the blocks table (although I doubt actual modification of it's table structure would be necessary) then modify your blocks admin functions to permit this 5th block type then just call the 5th (or 5th and 6th ie contentup contentdown) in the theme. Doing it this way would mean you can play and add subtract blocks at will thru admin rather than having to recode the theme each change.

I hate to say it but you are trying to duplicate what AutoTheme already does..

i need a methode to include a block without hardcode the content of the block into the theme.
And without using the original methode.

lol sorry to say , but i dont like autotheme , autotheme is to create themes (originaly)
and not to manipulate by a click.

also did you checked the size of autotheme?
to much resources needed , it is to overdone in my opinion.

The size? the size of the entire module is under a megabyte..

It is a small module, and does have complete block control.
You can put any block, in any position, based on any criteria, even down to the module.
You can use images in place of block titles, you can have custom html for each block.
Unlimited custom block positions too..

But I am not trying to knock what you are doing, just trying to let you know it is done already..

I apreciate your information , however it isnt the same as what my idea of the whole concept is.
As i said autotheme is to create themes either have all the options you mentioned or not , however , it is its purpose.

My intention is to manipulate excisting themes and eventualy strip out the whole theme control out of (raven)nuke's kernel.

to give you an idea check phpbb3's template engine

But Autotheme is not free so there is no duplication then, If Autotheme were an Open Source Solution then looking at Autotheme would be an option but it is not. If you know of any Open Source solutions then you can claim duplication of function cause then end users would have a free alternative to try. As is it is not.

Yes it is.
The free lite version does everything that the commercial version does except for caching.

Ok i think i'm close to something * euhm euhm*

As i work since a long time with nuke i still come to surprises when i try to locate something.

As for now i try to find where it is told
blocks(Down)
Blocks(Center)
Blocks(left)
blocks(right)

where it is written to use Center,Down,left,right , i can only find in mainfile l,r,c,d

??????

Would this be a module or something you hack into your theme?

I always liked the blog like lay-out where you can combine either 1 or 2 blocks into 1 column, next to your main content.
It would be something I'd like to use for a new theme.

i had to adapt the mainfile and did for now a manual database insertion.
I also needed to adapt header.php + footer.php , however i already needed to edit these 2 in first place.

As i for now just did a test ( couse it is working now the other way around) i want to complete the whole part.

just to give you an idea i go post you the mainfile.php , what needed the most edits , i'm also not 100% i did it correctly , there are also other things involved i might looked over.
for example the url rewrite part or headlines etc etc.
anyway take a look:

Hi. Can you better describe what the functions of this are? Im just a little confused, when I look at the link you posted it looks like a normal nuke layout.

Can you post some screenshots maybe?
