i have a custom block i'd like to appear on about 50 topic pages, but not on the other pages. is this possible, or can you only assign a block to one topic?

thanks!

Geeklog doesn't have support for multiple topics for any objects, be it stories or blocks.

If you don't mind some PHP coding, you could look into the dynamic block API that we have. There's some sample code in lib-custom.php and there are also some plugin API functions for blocks (note: I'm not too familiar with those myself - they were implemented by Blaine and Trinity, IIRC).

It would be nice if we had documentation for this somewhere. The wiki would come to mind ...
