    LOL... Don't worry I felt stupid when I found out how easy it was! :blush:

    Easy.... in the ACP click on Other Apps -> then click on the pencil to Edit the IP.Gallery. You can then rename it to whatever you want, the same applies to all Apps. :smile:

    Used the 'Fusion' Menu for quite awhile - but this is definitely significantly better!  :)
  4. Echelon One added a post in a topic: when something needs js added to header what is best place to add it?   

    I personally, would add it to the globalTemplate rather than the default header. I guess really it is a matter of preference.

    Thank you Michael, that corrected the issue.

    Much appreciated.

    Hi Michael,

    I was wondering if you knew of a way of forcing the template blocks to rewrite in Tutorials? I have this error on IP.Content, it is the only block I cannot get working - and I have seen it functioning correctly on other websites using the same layout. IPS have looked at it and said to contact the author for a possible solution.

    Error: Could not load template 'feed__generic_17' from group ''

    This is what IPS told me...

    Hello Les,

    It appears that this is an issue with the Tutorials applications integration with IP.Content, as it is only this block which can't find the template. Perhaps that template wasn't installed with Tutorials?

    Unfortunately we cannot support third party hooks. I recommend that you contact the author of the tutorials application and ask if they're aware of this issue and have a fix.

    Any advice on how I could possibly fix this or re-create the block would be much appreciated.

    Excellent add-on for IP.Content - easy to install and use. Makes life so much easier without all the coding, well worth the $20 I paid for it.

    Highly recommended for IP.C users!

    @James - nice review there!

    Internal Server Error

    The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.
    Please contact the server administrator, and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.
    More information about this error may be available in the server error log.
    Additionally, a 500 Internal Server Error error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request. Apache/2.2.22 (Unix) mod_ssl/2.2.22 OpenSSL/0.9.8e-fips-rhel5 mod_auth_passthrough/2.1 mod_bwlimited/1.4 FrontPage/ mod_fcgid/2.3.5 Server at Port 80

    This is caused under PHP 5.3 and Nexus when using friendly urls, I have the exact same problem. It was all working fine until I upgraded my PHP 5.2, which crashed Nexus, so I had to change to the Zend 53 version. I only upgraded to PHP 5.3 because I was testing a new script which needed 5.3 or 5.4.

About Me

Ex-vBulletin Coder/Designer from Now concentrating on most IPS applications, I am hoping to bring some new interesting ideas and concepts to IPB during 2011.

I have been in design for over 15yrs, and have nearly 30yrs experience with computers. I started back in the early 80's, involved in telecommunications and prototype development in thermocouple measuring equipment. Built my first computer, which was a ZX80 with 1k of RAM... lol Programming was done in HEX machine code and Basic, and saving data was done to cassette tapes.

    Does anyone know where to find a tutorial on creating an additional page in IPB3 without using IP.Content? All I need is the header and footer, and place my static content between them.

    1. TheRevTastic

      There's a mod for it, look through the marketplace, it should be a free one, I have used it before.

    2. Echelon One

      I seem that. But I wanted to create my own custom php file name and template, so I do not need to use hooks - I want to be to update it as soon as 3.2 is released without having issues.

    3. xCurlyx

      Custom Pages By Dawpi?

    4. xCurlyx

      Or use the look and feel... and use the board body from the global template.

    5. TeamJesus

      i trying to do the same too!! have you figured out how yet?

    6. Sandakelum™

      lolx. of course it automatically putting header and footer. just create a new php according to IPB structure and pull the template using the php :)

    7. Echelon One

      Thanks for all the comments! :) I worked on it and got it working, just the way I wanted. :D

    8. Divine Forces

      I'd love to find out how you did it :P

    Does anyone on here know where there is a tutorial to write a simple template hook for the sidebar?

    1. Alex K.

    2. Alex K.

      ^ Not exactly what you're looking for, but probably a good place to start.

    3. Echelon One

      Thanks..Alex. I was looking for a way of developing a sidebar hook for a custom modification. So basically, just a simple template hook to add some xHTML code.

    4. Alex K.

      Using that block as a base (if the author would let you) would probably be good then. Also:

      I can't view those since my licenses are expired, but I think those might be what you're looking for.

    6. Echelon One

      Ah, thanks Alex - that is just what I need. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction. Much appreciated.
