Template topics.shtml Faulty

alexmc writes "I've been wondering why the topics in the topics.shtml page appear so funny. They are listed one below each other and then the fifth and sixth are on the same line. This is in bender 2.0, and on the slashcode site itself. I tracked it down to the template "listTopics (68)" which looks a bit iffy.

I've tried replacing a bit in the code with this

  • //slashcode.com/article.pl?sid=
  • //slashcode.com/article.pl?sid=
  • //slashcode.com/article.pl?sid=
  • //slashcode.com/article.pl?sid=
  • "</TR><TR>"
  • //slashcode.com/article.pl?sid=
"

  • That has been buggin' me too. I'll give it a shot.

    Now if I could only get the "bite my shiny ass" off my page, I'd be all set.

    I think it's a block, motd (message of the day). Just replace it or remove it.

    Speaking of which, slash2 developers: is there a new way to use fortune for the motd? I saw something about making a template, but has anyone done it yet? It's hard to settle on just one motd!
  • Maybe my thanks was a bit premature... could your solution have been a little more cryptic?
     
    After playing with it a bit, this hack seems to do what we want:

    [% x = -1 %]
    [% FOREACH t_key = topics.keys.sort; topic = topics.$t_key %][% x = x + 1; "/TR TR" UNLESS x MOD 6 %]

    (fix "/TR>TR>" - altered to post)

    NOTE: In case you did not notice, the topic display you see from the admin screen is different than the one from the topics page.

    "Message of the day" aka motd is a template, not a block.
  • this may be a newbie problem, but after a completely clean install of Slash, there is no topics.shtml shouldn't this be part of the install package?
