vB Version: 3.7.x Rating: (2 votes - 3.00 average) Installs: 21
Released: 09 Dec 2008 Last Update: Never Downloads: 1
Not Supported Template Edits  

If your site uses the calendar feature, you may want to better publicize events on the forumhome. The default location of the "What's going on?" box is all the way at the bottom of forumhome and is pretty easy to never even see.

So, if you'd like to put another copy of the upcoming events and the day's birthdays at the top of the forums:

First, find your FORUMHOME template.

Go to:
AdminCP > Styles & Templates > Search in Templates > input FORUMHOME & search titles only > edit

Find:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Just below that add:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.




If want just the upcoming events without the birthdays, then use this:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.




In both of these examples, I've removed the header that says "What's Going On?". If you'd rather have that, then do this:

After:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Put:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Save the template and you're done.

You have a space at the top and bottom of every table on the page. The space below the WGO info seems to be a bit larger than the rest though. Try taking out the final line break tag, <br />

Hi,
Very nice mod, thanks!

How do I modify the box title "What's Going On" to something else? I tried to change but could not get it to work.

Thanks!

If you'd like to just change this one instance, you can just change the text here:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

If you change the "whats_going_on" phrase, it would be changed throughout your fourms.

I'd imagine that you could just create a template module for vBa and add the code to the module.
