To hide the left blocks for all modules, you need to edit your theme.php file. Find this code
Code:
blocks(left);
and comment it out
Code:
//blocks(left);


To hide the left block for a specific module, you need to edit theme.php and do 2 things. First of all, in the themeheader() function, add the variable $name to the global statement. Then, find this code
Code:
blocks(left);
and change it to
Code:
    if ($name=="MODULE_NAME") {}

    else blocks(left);
where MODULE_NAME is the name of the module to hide the blocks. For example, to hide the left blocks when viewing the Member List, you would code
Code:
    if ($name=="Members_List") {}

    else blocks(left);


Note that you will have to do this for every theme that you use

don't forget that you have to use put the $name variable in the global under the function

function themeheader() {
global $sitename, $pagetitle, $slogan, $prefix, $dbi, $user, $cookie, $banners, $anonymous, $user, $name;



Thought that had to be in place also

        <td bgcolor=ffffff valign=top>";
}

That's because that theme is not written like standard nuke themes. This fix assumes that the theme.php is written as a standard nuke theme.php.

Is their a way to remove the Left and right blocks for a module?

(I looked at this thread, not just the left, but both.)

This is a custom module for serving documents and I thought it was great because the comments and ratings are on the bottom. I would like to turn this into a Guitar Tab module!

(As you can see the needed comments and ratings are on the bottom and leaving the much needed realistate for the removed left and side blocks for the proper pagination the guitar tab requires)

I am talking to this guy that produced the Recipe module and he said he is going to re write the descriptions to include documents. I may just do this my self and change the Breakfast, Meat, Food names to Country, Rock, Hard Rock, Classic Rock and change the icons to Guitar related Tab indexes.

Going to be just great!

How can I remove BOTH left and right blocks?

From this Module only.

Peace
Wink

Open the module's index file and change:
$index = 1;
to:
$index = 0;

If it doesn't have the code just insert it near the start:
$index = 0;

Have you tried what's described above?
add $name to the themeheader global line and change:
Code:
    blocks(left);

to:
Code:
    if ($name=='Recipes') {

   }
   else {
    blocks(left);
   }

???

I will try again.

But from what I see the main issue with the shrinking text with guitar tab is
the way the user pastes the text. (Like the smallish box I am typing in "Quick Reply" that is the main issue with shrunken miss paginated guitar tabs.

I bet the above fix will work. And I will email the author about the small input box for the text.

Thanks.

O yes, I don't know how I skipped that. Thanks again from Noob Planet.
Worked 100% as described.

Now I am going to try to figure out how to edit the Text input box to have FULL
size Pagination.

Looks good so far. Next im going to edit the SQL file to reflect Guitar related words. Mr. Green

How do i do this for other modules? say i wanted two or three modules not to display left blocks but wanted the rest of the site to show left blocks.

I have tried to repeat the above method but returns a blank white page.

I have my forum like above and wanted another module that i have made not to show left blocks too.

Thnx in advance.

Code:
    if ($name=='Module1' || $name=='Module2' || $name=='Module3') { 

   }
   else {
    blocks(left);
   }

Or:
Code:
    if ($name!='Module1' || $name!='Module2' || $name!='Module3') { 

    blocks(left);
   }

Quick question:

This doesn't seem to work for me with any compound names that have an underscore in them. For example.....Forums work fine, Content works fine. But Members_List, Web_Links, etc will not work.

Any ideas? (This is for removing the left blocks, not the right)

Using this type of code:

Code:
if ($name=='Module1' || $name=='Module2' || $name=='Module3') { 

   }
   else {
    blocks(left);
   }

Try a period instead of an underscore.

Still doesn't work. Here is the exact code I am using:

Code:
if ($name=="Forums" || $name=="PHP_Manual" || $name=="Amazon" ||  $name=="Content") { 

}
else {
blocks(left);
}


All single words work fine. Nothing with an underscore will work.

Try
Code:


global name;
if ($name=="Forums" || $name=="PHP_Manual" || $name=="Amazon" ||  $name=="Content") {
}
else {
blocks(left);
}

Thanks Raven. Your previous post pointed me in the right direction and I got it working. It turns out you can use spaces in there instead of the underscore. For example, my previous code above now works by doing this:

Code:
if ($name=="Forums" || $name=="PHP Manual" || $name=="Amazon" ||  $name=="Content") { 

}
else {
blocks(left);
}


All compound names are working for me now if I include a space as the underscore in the if/else statement.

Bang Head - oops, I forgot that $name was already transformed. Good job!

Another quick question.....how do I remove these left blocks only when I am reading an article? I know I can add "News" to my above code, but that removes them from the home page as well. I want them there, but not when I click to read a full article.

Any ideas?

Stumper? Smile

I'm just thinking of being more search engine friendly. When they hit an article now they have to go through all the block code before it gets to the meat of the content. Removing the left blocks when viewing an article will put them right into the meat almost instantly.
