missing fundamentals -- manually editing pages

Postby shimrah » Tue Apr 24, 2007 1:32 pm

Hi there,

I'm trying to get rid of the title and description that appear in the content of the Home page. Where is this content generated?

Is it a matter of editing the .tpl files?

Just to add to my previous post...

I've attempted to alter, for example, \templates\common\sidebar.tpl by removing some code

e.g., removing (or just moving):

<div class="block">
<a href="javascript:openHelp('{if $helpTopicId}{get_help_id key="$helpTopicId" url="true"}{else}{url page="help"}{/if}')">{translate key="navigation.journalHelp"}</a>

but the changes I make don't appear on the site. I'm either in the wrong place or deleting the wrong things.

Or ... both?

Hi Shimrah,

Make sure that the cache directory including all contents and subdirectories is writable by the web server. If it is, any modifications you make to .tpl files should take effect immediately.

The code you describe is responsible for displaying the "help" link on the top of the right-hand sidebar. The journal title and description can be edited as Site Administrator by choosing "Hosted Journals" and clicking the "Edit" link beside the journal in question.

There we go ... thanks.

I changed the permissions, and now all is well. :wink:
