Title: TPDownload in a block/panel

Hi:
Is there a way to put TPDownload into a Block and Panel like TPShout?

Difficult to answer without knowing what you want to show in the block...

There are a few standard article and downloads blocks you can choose when you create a new block . Do those provide what you are looking for?

Thanks, rjen,
I would like to show TPDownload on the Frontpage, without navigating to "TiniPortal"-"Downloads" because that would be easier to find for the user.

Michael

WHAT do you want to show? Tpdownloads is a page with featured download , recent, categories and downloads. Do you want the whole page on the frontpage? Or just selected downloads?

If it’s the whole page, that may be a challenge...

Okay...so let's make it just "files for download"
And if it would be in a PANEL instead of the frontpage, it would do also!
Best woul be, similar to www.fjr-club.nl ;-)

Then all you need to do is create a Article/Downloads Functions block and choose where and what you want to display in it. It gives you these options to choose from (see screen shot) below.

You can also see the option chosen in that block is what's showing in the downloads block right hand side of my test site, https://cctestsite.info/testsite3/index.php
