Raven

Have you thought about making a collapsable Center or Side News block, with operations that basically mimic the Collapsing Forums Block?

Also on the Collapsing Forums Block would it be possible to adjust the code so you can see, say the first 5 posts all the time, the hit the expand button and show all of them

Yes on both Smile - They are on my list but that list is quite long and those will be a while before they bubble up Wink

Came here looking for just this particular thing with regards to the News articles...but unfortunately the posts for this are a year old...

This still on the plate for some day in the future?

If not, does anybody know of any hacks/modules/tweaks to be able to do this. I know there's the forum block; however, I'm wanting to do this with News topics on the front page as sometimes some of the News can be a bit lengthy and fill a page and some people do not like the "Read More" option, hehehe...

Still on the list? Nope. The "list" went into never-never land a few months ago when my hard drive went belly up. At the present time I don't have any plans for this.

Interesting one this because I use the first 5 posts block all the time on my site and would like to add the extra functionality of the collapsing Forums block and retain that feature.

Making it collapsible is easy. Making it collapsible, XHTML Transitional Compliant, fully cross browser compatible (regardless of whether the browser allows js to run) is another thing all together.

There are collapsing block themes out in the wild that might be want you are looking for. They were originally made by Lorkan, but they went "off the air" quite a while ago. I wonder if you could still find them somewhere. They even had the edits broken out to where you could try and incorporate into any theme.

Too funny... right after I posted that, I remembered that when Lorkan went "under", I fished through my hard-drive and found a couple of their packages. Guess what? I have had them on my site ever since. Here you go:

No support or warranties! I didn't write 'em and they are VERY old. But, maybe the concepts will help.

I installed one of these themes with collapsing blocks on a site recently. Lots of compliance error, but I'm not sure it's directly related to the collapsing blocks.

But naga is asking for this on the news stories, but that could be added to the theme - I don't this it requires changes to the application .

montego thanks:).... i tried those but those scripts are made only for phpnuke 7.3 or 4. Didn't work with RavenNuke i guess. It will take months to work it out for a newbie like me:D way too complicated lol. Laughing

As an admin enforce the story text versus extended text options when people post stories. Don't post their stories if they put more than a paragraph in story text and make it clear you won't. Or edit their stuff after it is submitted and move anything beyond a first paragraph to the extended text area. Then let 'em click on read more. And if they don't like it, too bad.

On one site, I moved the Read More link to the previous line, above Posted By.
This tweek seemed to soothe the natives.

in DeepBlue/theme.php
Code:


FormatStory($thetext, $notes, $aid, $informant);
    echo "</td></tr></table>\n"
        ."</td></tr></table><br>\n"
        ."</td></tr><tr><td bgcolor=\"#FFFFFF\" align=\"center\">\n"
        ."<font class=\"content\">$morelink</font></center><br>\n"
        ."<font class=\"tiny\">"._POSTEDBY."  \n";
