Static page for left hand column

Hi,

I created a static page wich does what I want with the below PHP. (Thanks Marc)

Only problem is I want it on the right hand column not in the center. I'm assumng this requites creation of a block by putting the below script into custom lib.php. Tried it but couldn't get it to work any help would be appreciated.


$numStories = 10;

$result = DB_query("Select sid, title,unix_timestamp(date) AS day FROM {$_TABLES['stories']} WHERE (date
$nrows = DB_numRows($result);

for ($i = 1; $i
$A = DB_fetchArray($result);

$retval .= date("M d",$A['day']) . ' -- ' . stripslashes($A['title']) . '
';

}

return $retval;

Should be doable as a PHP block. Did you name the function correctly for use as a PHP block?

I used this-

Text Formatted Code
function phpblock_stories()
{

$numStories = 10;

$result = DB_query("Select sid, title,unix_timestamp(date) AS day FROM {$_TABLES['stories']} WHERE (date

$nrows = DB_numRows($result);

for ($i = 1; $i

$A = DB_fetchArray($result);

$retval .= date("M d",$A['day']) . ' -- <a href="' . $_CONF['site_url'] . '/article.php?story=' . $A['sid'] . '">' . stripslashes($A['title']) . '</a><BR>';

}

return $retval;

}

Part of your code was eaten by our HTML filter. Use the forum's CODE button next time. And it would help if you could be more specific when describing your problem ...

Looks like you're missing a

global $_TABLES;

statement at least.

If you can't get it to work, post your code again (using the CODE button this time) so someone can have a look.

bye, Dirk

I'm taking the code from the older stories thread:

http://www.geeklog.net/comment.php?mode=display&format=threaded&order=ASC&pid=12286

I will still try to put the code in the next message.

I would like to know if I need to add more than:

function phpblock_stories()
{

global $_TABLES;

to the above script I posted in the last email.

global $_CONF, $_TABLES;

from what I can see. Did you try it?
