A Detailed Look at Block Settings
« on: December 06, 2015, 10:53:38 PM »
After you have created your block you'll need to sort through all of the settings and with some blocks those settings can be somewhat extensive. So, in this topic we will explore those settings in a bit more detail.

Please note that some blocks will not have these exact same settings, but many do.

Create and save your block and then you will have several standard block options to select from.

Choose style for the block:
As seen in this image, there are a variety of styles that you can choose from. You may wish to try several of them to see which one works best with your site.

In the next image you will see the following settings:

Frame options:
  • Use frame style from theme
  • Use frame style, but not title style
  • Use just the title style
  • Do not use title/frame styles

Block Upshrink:
  • Allow block to collapse
  • Do not allow block to collapse

Choose your membergroups that will able to see this block:
  • There will be a list of all membergroups to toggle from.
  • If none are chosen, it will only display it to admin.
  • Toggle all membergroups option

Choose your extra membergroups that can edit this block only:
  • There will be a list of all membergroups to toggle from.
  • Note that "manage_blocks" and "admin" permission always give this right regardless.
  • Toggle all membergroups option
  • Add custom block title for any installed language - except for default.

Block Access:
  • Action (list of actions, or custom action name) - with toggle "reverse criteria" option.
  • Boards: (list of boards) - with toggle "reverse criteria" option.
  • Article categories: (list of your TP Articles categories)  - with toggle "reverse criteria" option.
  • DL Manager (Download Manager) - with toggle "reverse criteria" option.
  • Articles:(a list of your articles) - with toggle "reverse criteria" option.
  • Languages: (list of your installed languages) - with toggle "reverse criteria" option.
  • Modules (Shoutbox)
