I am looking for a hack to separate stories of different days with a line or text in between.

EG..

Story 1

Story 2

---------------- Tuesday, September 1st, 2004 ------------

Story 3 (posted the day before)

Story 4 (posted the day before)

etc...

Or just a line would be good.

Tks

This should be doable in index.php.... if you look around line 170, you'll see something like this:

if ($nrows > 0) {
    for ($x = 1; $x <= $nrows; $x++) {
        $A = DB_fetchArray($result);
        if ($A['featured'] == 1) {
            $feature = 'true';
        } elseif (($x == 1) && ($_CONF['showfirstasfeatured'] == 1)) {
            $feature = 'true';
            $A['featured'] = 1;
        }
        $display .= COM_article($A,'y');
        if ($A['featured'] == 1) {
            $display .= PLG_showCenterblock (2, $page, $topic);
        }
    }




in this, you could add a check after the $A = DB_fetchArray($result) to see whether the date has changed, and if it has, add an extra line of text with the next date.

Cheers,

Euan.

Thank you. I'll have to wait for someone to come up with the code :-)
