after you select a section how can you make all the articles with no right blocks ??

Not sure what you mean..  The category box just lists categories and subcategories.. Once you click the link it goes the category page with the article listings.

PS Anything on the javascript idea..  Just curious..  It sounded really intriguing.. Thanks!

When you click on a category it brings you to a page with all the articles from that category. But I would like it to show the articles with no side blocks. I did not see an option for this

Each article has visual options.. and 3 of them are whether to display Left, Right or Center blocks.

Would you just have your user just use top navigation or something to get to where ever they need to go after they view article?

Zetan

Depends on the Article. I have some, like the chat room and other forum features that don't have any navigation, other than the main menu bar.. Help Articles, I display blocks on the left.

samson

Yes if i click on the individual article the blocks go away but when it shows all the articles when you click on the category I would like no side blocks

shawnlg

Zetan it sounds like you can do it.  How is it done?

Zetan

When you see an Article in Admin view, or the edit screen.. each has two option panels.


  • [Edit article] 
  • [Edit options]
[Edit options]  is where all the visual options are, like link tree, panels, commenting etc.

Remember though, if you are displaying more than 1 article on say, the home page.. and 1 has left blocks, and the other dosen't, they will conflict.. so both need to ideally be set the same.. One can have comments enabled though, and the other can have comments switched off.

It's generally blocks and article theme settings that can be a problem. No fault of the software, but conflicting visual options can cause confusion.
