I have been fooling around with the left menu blocks. I was wondering how much of an endeavor it would be to put the left menu items into a table for formatting reasons. Any help would be appreciated, dave

Have a look at the file leftblocks.thtml - the variable {geeklog_blocks} is a place holder for all the blocks, so all you would need to do is put that variable in a table.

Is that what you're asking for?

Or do you want to style your left and right blocks differently? That's explained here.

bye, Dirk

Right now the left menu items are in one table cell seperated by a <br> if each of the menu items were in <td> instead of <br> you could do some more formatting and spacing ect. You would have to hack into the left menu routine. Would this be too big of venture. example. <table cellpadding=3 cellspacing=0 border=1 bordercolor=red> <tr> <td>Home</td> <tr> <td>Got Geeked</td> instead of Home <br> Got Geeked <br> ect.

Currently, some of those blocks use hard-coded HTML and some use the useroption.thtml template file. In Geeklog 1.3.8, they will all be using the useroption.thtml and a new useroption_off.thtml template file, so this will give you more flexibility. You could get those changes from CVS, if you don't want to wait. On the other hand, depending on what you want to accomplish, you should be able to do quite a lot of things by using CSS. bye, Dirk
