I would like to add a message in a certain spot. See image and let me know how to put a message in that location.

I am redoing the Political boards. So I want the same message in every Political forum plus all the sub forums.

Deaks

you would need to modify messageindex.template.php, and use if command like

$which_boards = array(1,2,3);

simply whats is suggested in this VERY VERY Old topic:

// Finally the most important bit - the actual text box to write in!

This is in the old posting on support. Is this what I'm looking for in the files.

Here is my file, cn you see the location, because I can't see it..Probably different on smf 2.1

You cannot see attachments on this board.

quick glance maybe try
look for:
</div>';

echo '
<div class="pagesection">

change to

</div>';

$which_boards = array(1,2,3);
{
echo'
<div>Your Text Here</div>';
}
echo'

I will not say this will work as im half asleep also never tested it

Ronald

Try this, replace

if ($context['description'] != '' || !empty($context['moderators']))

with

$politicalBoards = array(1, 1, 1, 1);
if (in_array($context['current_board'], $politicalBoards))
echo '
    <div class="noticebox">Notice Text</div>';

if ($context['description'] != '' || !empty($context['moderators']))

fill politicalBoards array with your own board ids

Ronald

Thanks. I does work the way it sits.

But when I remove Notice Text, and put my own message in
QuoteThis is a political forum that is non-biased/non-partisan and treats every persons position on topics equally. This debate forum is not aligned to any political party.
In today's politics, many ideas are split between and even within all the political parties. Often we find ourselves agreeing on one platform but some topics break our mold.

It stops and gives my a blank page

SychO

That's because in your text, you need to replace any single quotes with: anti-slash + single quote

so for example: today's politics becomes today\'s politics

Ronald

Here is the original code from where I got the message from.

   <li class="navbit lastnavbit"><span itemprop="title">Europe</span></li>

   </ul>
   

</div>

 
 


   <form action="https://www.debatepolitics.com/profile.php?do=dismissnotice" method="post" id="notices" class="notices">
      <input type="hidden" name="do" value="dismissnotice" />
      <input type="hidden" name="s" value="" />
      <input type="hidden" name="securitytoken" value="guest" />
      <input type="hidden" id="dismiss_notice_hidden" name="dismiss_noticeid" value="" />
      <input type="hidden" name="url" value="" />

Thanks it worked fine..

@Ronald  Just curious, and I realise you have now solved this.  Are you running a portal mod on that site? I had a feeling you were. I only ask because you should be able to add that message in a block on a given board, unless the portal mod doesn't have that feature.

Yea running EH Portal, I only use one block. I never set the portal up as a page, just for one block. Never realized you could set up blocks to show on certain pages.. I don't know that much about them..

What I did does seem to fit right in, it's on top of the Topic page as soon as you open it..

Ronald

Lurk, I tried doing how you said, it does work, but doesn't show how I wanted it..

Unless you mean the actual placement of said message, I have no idea where you can place this stuff using EH Portal. But the content of the message you should be able to add and look exactly the same.

Bottom line is you got it sorted, that's the main thing.  ;)
