I did a quick search and didn't see anything informative so I'll just ask.

Heres my site. Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login!
Its running RN2.10.01

Currently it creates a new table around each news article added, what I'd like to happen is for them to stay within one table.
I've played around with the index.php and articles.php under the news module but I'm not seeing anything. Am I looking in the right file? The story_home.htm file does nothing for me either.

Any leads would be helpful,
helz

Well, unfortunately, there are a wide variety of themes out there, but, you can be rest assured that function themeindex() within theme.php drives it all. story_home.html was the right idea. What you have to find is the code within themeindex() that pulls in story_home.html. I think that you'll want to have story_home.html start and end with the <tr> and </tr> tags, and move the <table> and </table> into the function.

Thanks for the quick reply. I played with the code abit but haven't a clue where to put the table tags at.

Code:
    $tmpl_file = "themes/Poisonblades/story_home.html";

    $thefile = implode("", file($tmpl_file));
    $thefile = addslashes($thefile);
    $thefile = "\$r_file=\"".$tmpl_file."\";";


I've tweaked the html file to start and end with <tr> </tr>. I then tried adding the open/closetags at the start and end, no luck. Tried adding
$thefile .= '<table>';
$thefile .= '</table>';
there at the ends but I'm having no luck with my trail and error approach. It looks like its something simple but its kicking my ass Razz

Well story_home.html is processed per story. So you can't just wrap a table around that code

You probably need to find where themeindex is called in modules/News/index.php and put your table there

helsnicht, sorry about that. Was thinking themeindex() was called only once. Sorry... was trying to go off of memory.

Thanks Evaders!
