While making a module serve as a link should work, you might want to consider other approaches as well. Like for instance, if you have an opening message at the top of your web page just put the link in there using the links editor and some prominent fonts and positioning. Or even create a block that has nothing in it but the link to your Gallery and position that center top using the blocks editor. Or add a sample picture to such a block to illustrate what you are pointing them to.

Creating a pseudo-module seems like a long way around the block to me.


So what you are saying I should just make that link face in my index and tell something about it? Or place it in a block and center that on my front page in the middle, instead of just a simple link in my modules section ?

Sorry for sounding a bit harsh but that way I do not want to represent a link to another site, and using Web_Links is also not desirable as it is our second clan page, yet has nothing to do with the main site.

I was simply presenting an alternative. The block with the name of "modules" is kind of brain dead. Basically, it just does a file system read and lists all the files that are in your /nukeroot/modules directory. So, if you put a file there that has a redirect in it, it should work but it rather a long way round the barn, as I said.

You could even customize the coding in block-modules to "hard-code" a link to your Gallery without creating a separate module just to have a link. But go ahead with what you are doing and with what the others here are helping you with, it will work too.

And how would I go about doing that ?

If it works I'm glad Smile

And on top of that, I do not need a 'simple' redirect. I want one to open up in a new window or tab.

And as said earlier in the posts, PHP is always _SELF never _BLANK.

If you want to put the link in block-modules.php, open the file up for editing. I am using the 2.5 released file in this example. At line 48 you see the beginning of a while loop that goes through the module file names. d

Code:
     while ($row3 = $db->sql_fetchrow($result3)) {


So if you want your link to be at the top of this list you would insert something like:

Code:
 $content .= '<li><a href="mysite.mygallery.com" target="blank"> MyGallery</a></li>';


You are thus putting it at the top of the unordered list (ul) code. But you could insert it into the $content variable anyplace you want,

Allright added this into block-Modules.php at line 48 the while row starts with me on line 47 then uploaded it, force refreshed cache and nothing shows.

Code:


/* Now we make the Modules block with the correspondent links */

$content .= '<div class="' . $ListClass . ' block-modules"><ul class="rn-ul">
<li><a href="index.php">' . _HOME . '</a></li>';
$result3 = $db->sql_query('SELECT * FROM ' . $prefix . '_modules WHERE active=1 AND inmenu=1 ORDER BY custom_title ASC');
while ($row3 = $db->sql_fetchrow($result3)) {
$content .= '<li><a href="http://www.xdppxclan.co.uk" target="blank"> MineCraft Clan</a></li>';
    $groups = $row3['groups'];
    $m_title = stripslashes($row3['title']);
    $custom_title = $row3['custom_title'];
    $view = intval($row3['view']);
    $m_title2 = str_replace('_', ' ', $m_title);
    if (!empty($custom_title)) {
        $m_title2 = $custom_title;
    }

I would undo any changes and change the beginning from
Code:
$content .= '<div class="' . $ListClass . ' block-modules"><ul class="rn-ul">

<li><a href="index.php">' . _HOME . '</a></li>';

to
Code:
$content .= '<div class="' . $ListClass . ' block-modules"><ul class="rn-ul">

<li><a href="index.php">' . _HOME . '</a></li>
<li><a href="http://www.xdppxclan.co.uk" target="blank">MineCraft Clan</a></li>';

cool, glad you got it sorted. if you prefer the nukeNAV block the line you would be looking for is:

Code:
$content = '<table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0"><tr><td><ul class="' . $ListClass . '"><li class="li-first"><a href="./">'._HOME."</a></li>\n";


change to:
Code:
$content = '<table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0"><tr><td><ul class="' . $ListClass . '"><li class="li-first"><a href="./">'._HOME."</a></li>\n";

$content .= '<li class="li-even li-next"><a href="http://www.xdppxclan.co.uk" target="_blank">MineCraft Clan</a></li>\n";
$n++;
