Archived ⇒ Help With News Page!?


I need to remove all the news and topics etc in the news page. Basically the home page of my site.

And add a shoutbox to the right of the page.
And instead of news I want top 10 posters mod/hack.
Can somebody give me some basic info on how to do it?

Also: I want my home page simular to whereisit.org

Oh and every time I delete a news or topic.
It says page 1 does not exist. Sad

Create an empty module with index.php of<?php if (!defined('CPG_NUKE')) { exit; } require_once('header.php'); echo '<br />'; ?>Call it something like Home or Center and set it as your home module.

I don't think that helped me with anything.
I also tried removing the first news topic and it says page 1 does not exist still. lol so confused...

Well, then maybe you need to explore your DF admin panel and read Wiki to get a feel for installing modules or check out video tutorials at sites like dizfunkshunal's (when it's back in service).

You also need to search for "page 1 does not exist" - if you have no news articles, then of course page 1 does not exist.

I know how to install mods and crap.
The problem is customizing my news page to the way I want it.
And getting rid of news so it does not display that error.
on the news page.
And getting the shoutblock to the right corner of my site.

You said nothing about customizing your news page - if you don't want news articles shown on the main page, then don't use News as the "home" module, simple as that - that's what the Home module provides.

Placement of blocks is simply done on a module basis in the latest DF but not in 9.0.6.1 but there is no way of knowing which you are using
