Topic Overview Static Page

Hi,

Tokyoahead.com is (again) proud to announce a small adition to the geeklog environment:

A Topic Overview Static page. This is a small "theft" from the respective Slashdot-page, but I guess an idea like this is not (yet) patented...

This can be specially helpful if you have a LOT of topics and you made a special menu where you dont want to list them all

The page lists all topics that the current user is allowed to see, together with its icon. You can see the page in action here.

Download it here on my page or on the local download section as soon as the download is approved.

Cool addition
However when you click on the icon/link you get Page not found

Im having a wierd problem where the page works, but no matter how its set, it won't show the right blocks. I poked through it quickly, but I suppose it will require a more thorough look unless there is something simple I'm not seeing. Im on the professional theme and all other static pages can be set as "left and right blocks" without issue.

Thanks, but using the fix (Return type) php, it's still loading up as a left block only (though it is set as left+right). I notice that the icons have moved over to the right a little bit now. Could there be some missing closing table, table data or table row tags? I see it works fine on your site

If I don't evaluate php, the page displays as left+right fine (though of course since the php is not evaluated, you just see a bunch of php code)

I just emailed you the link. The footer position may give you an indication of what's happening I dunno. Here's the output of php --version in case that helps:

PHP 4.3.10 (cli) (built: Dec 20 2004 06:18:46)

Actuall I just found the problem.
there is a variable used in your version of Static pages that is the same as in my static page and there is some conflict.
I renamed all A-Variables to B-variables and it works now!

somehow this comes up only in your version. You might have an older one than the current.

to fix it, search all uccurences of $A and replace them by $B.

A big public "Thanks a heap!". I now use two of your plugins (topicoverview and randomphoto) and they both are really neat additions to my site. Thanks again for your quick attention to the matter!

Great work! I've got so many lists of links in blocks on my site, this provides an easier and more elegant gateway to the topics listing. I added some text in my installation of this static page to explain what topics are and what clicking on the icons does (for users who are unfamiliar with geeklog). If you've spent a lot of time working on your topic icons, this provides a nice way to showcase them all to normal members and anonymous users of your site (since this display is on the admin page, its normally only available to admins)

True.
Speically if you show all your stories on the frontpage anyhow. There is no real need to list all the topics in a block.

I just released the version 2.1 at my site.. I will post this release also here.

Version 2.1 Additions:
- minor html corrections
- optional rewrap for css-option
- code tuning
- margin options for css
- code commented

for those who have been going through all the updates note that this is basically the final version of this code.

I tried to tune it to the max w/o overloading it. So you dont have to expect another update in the next 24 hrs :-)
