    I. My face is red. It was inside the loop. Thanks for the hint.

    II. Also thanks for the updated code to help prevent comment spamming. I have yet to implement but will soon.

    III. Also I found the optional news archive sidebox did not include a class for "sideBoxContent". So I added by editing tpl_news_archive.php as follows:

    Code:
        $content = '<div class="sideBoxContent">';
        $content .= '<div class="newsArchiveSideBox">';
    
    	$newsDisplay = new newsDisplay();
    
    	foreach ($newsArchiveList as $archive) {
    		$newsDisplay->articleFooter(sprintf(BOX_NEWS_ARCHIVE_TEXT_ARCHIVE_LIST_HEADER, $archive['archiveDate']), $archive['archiveLinks'], false, false, false);
    	}
    
    	$content .= $newsDisplay->displayNewsPage(false);
    
      $content .= '</div>';
      $content .= '</div>';
    IV. Also I would like to rid of the first clearSplit in the news archive sidebox to rid of extra whitespace between the year (e.g. 2006) and the top sidebox image. Anyone have a quick fix?

    I see the source of clearSplit is the newsDisplay() function within news.php class file. That function also renders all the other news pages so unsure how to adapt for sidebox without negatively impacting display of the news pages. I figure I might need to write another function specific to the sidebox in the class file (to drop the clearSplits) and call it from tpl_news_archive.php. But I don't yet have enough PHP knowledge yet to decipher tpl_news_archive.php

    If you want something different, you will have to code it.
    If anyone is thinking of doing this please PM me.

    I'm not sure if I have the coding chops but I'm thinking of taking a swipe at enabling so admin can set the number of days to display articles in summary, and set the number of articles that can be displayed.

    Similar to what the "News Manager" mod supports.

    Also a sidebox displaying a dynamic list of the latest article titles (but not a scroller sidebox, but that optional sidebox could be used as a basis).

    Again similar to what the "News Manager" mod supports.

    Hi despite the long efforts of understanding loops and php I really couldnt do it. I'd just like to list all the news on one page and have a rss feed for it. no complicated archives or irritating links to every single post. If anyone can help it would be really appreciated. or if anyone has some other contribution in mind let me know

    Hello all,

    This is a brill mod. I have been using this from 1.27 upwards. I upgraded to 1.301, and noticed a difference on the new.php page. Example is below:-

    http://www.thegemtree.com/index.php?main_page=news

    On the first article, I had entered a summary image which doesn't seem to show. The second article is purposely concise for now. Also, several lines appear below each article which are not part of the admin-side entry. I noticed that nobody else mentioned anything like this, so I don't know if this is just exclusive to my site.

    If not, I wonder if it is just a case of amending new.php file?

    Many thanks,

    Russ

    I'm using this with 1.3. I would like to wrap a div around the entire news template (it needs a little padding). However, I've looked at the tpl files and they are a different format than the rest of zen and I can;t seem to figure out how to do it.

    hi, I think I have had the same padding issue in 1.3 , but used
    Code:
    td { padding: 0.5em; }
    as a workaround

    cheers
