    Default new sidebox change text to *.gif

    Hi there,
    I've created a new sidebox called Good to know.
    I've created a header (gif file) for it called goodtoknowhead.gif

    How do I change the text currently displayed to use my custom image?

    Hope this makes sense!!

    Thanks

    Default Re: new sidebox change text to *.gif

    Ok I got the image working for the good to know heading.
    I forgot to add the image to my template file and update the stylesheet headings.php file.

    Somehow the text "Good to Know" is below the sidebox image. Even though it's not visible it's there and it's making any page I place under the good to know heading be out of alignment.

    Do you know how I can get rid of the text?
    I was given instructions for a similar issue in another thread but this is really doing my head in. I just can't work it out.

    please help!!

    Use the Images for Titles mod from Free Addons for your sidebox heading. That automatically handles the headings where you have images properly named and leaves the rest alone.

    Or you can change the define for your new sidebox title to be the image instead of text:
    PHP Code:
    define('YOUR_SIDEBOX_TITLE'zen_image(DIR_WS_TEMPLATE 'buttons/' $_SESSION['language'] . '/your_sidebox_image.gif''Your Sidebox Heading')); 
    Save the image file in /includes/templates/your_template/buttons/english/.

    Hi there,
    where do i find define('YOUR_SIDEBOX_TITLE', zen_image(DIR_WS_TEMPLATE . 'buttons/' . $_SESSION['language'] . '/your_sidebox_image.gif', 'Your Sidebox Heading'))

    I searched for zen_image(DIR_WS_TEMPLATE . 'buttons/' . in Admin> dev tools but it didn't show up!!

    You won't find it. You need to find the existing define for whatever the custom sidebox title is and change it similar to the example. I can't write it exactly for you because I don't know your sidebox id, image filename, etc.

    Use Tools > Developers Toolkit to find the file where the current sidebox title text is defined.
