I presume the index.php file I'm to change is at:
/trojanswimclub.ie/index.php
Does that sound correct?
Those who say it can't be done, are usually interrupted by others doing it.

Oh I'm not the brightest Rolling Eyes
I edited index.thtml instead of index.php
All sorted now.
Thanks for your patience.

Below you can find an updated version, for GL 1.3.11, of the hack that will enable you to list titles only on the front page. Original instructions in the first post in this topic.

1. firstly, you create a new template frontstorytext.thtml

with the following content
PHP Formatted Code
<table width="100%" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="2">
        <tr>
                <td colspan="2" align="left" bgcolor="#e1e2e5"><span class="articleTitle"><a href="{site_url}/article.php?story={story_id}">{story_title}</a></span></td>
        </td>
        </tr>
</table>
 


2. next, open index.php

3. find: $display .= STORY_renderArticle($A,'y');

4. replace with: $display .= STORY_renderArticle( $A, 'y', 'frontstorytext.thtml' );

5. save, and you're good to go

how can i add a short date to it, in dd/mm/yyyy format?

{story_date} returns long date, together with time...

PHP Formatted Code
<table width="100%" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="2">
<tr>
<td width="20%">{story_date}</td>
<td width="80%" align="left" bgcolor="#e1e2e5"><span class="articleTitle"><a href="{site_url}/article.php?story={story_id}">{story_title}</a></span></td>
</td>
</tr>
</table>
 


so if I used it like this, the date is "Friday, February 25 2005 @ 02:35 PM EST"

your hints are much appreciated

The date is formatted according to the user's preferred date format (from their preferences) or according to $_CONF['date'] if they chose "system default" (or are not logged in).

I have an interesting dilemma when implementing this hack. It only converts the first story into a headline and all the rest show the normal story. Any advice?

Can be seen here

Cheers,

Shane

I'm bumping this because I'm searching for code that will do exactly this.

Any chance this will work in 1.4.1?

Is there a way to modify this to display links to files that have been uploaded via File Mangement?
