Hi there.

A newbie here, after 8 years with phpBB.

I have some portal questions.

1. What do I do to shorten the topics in portal, to like 10 rows, instead of showing the full topic? A long topic really destroys the portal, if you dont shorten it. Then you can add a link like "View full" to it.
2. How do I control the blocks on the right side in the forum and in the portal. Some are in both, some not. How do I do?

Thanx!

I assume your using the IPB default portal? If so:

1. Which area are you referring to?
2. The portal layout can be controlled via the template bit. In Admin CP > Look & Feel Tab > select skin > Portal > skeletonTemplate. Each block will have it's own tag that you need to move around, e.g. here is the online users block.

<!--::online_users_show::-->

I am talking about the mainpage of the portal. In my case: http://euro-rap.com/....php?app=portal

You see that there are some lost thopics there. And it ruins the portal looks. I have to change it so the topics in the portal mainpage are like 10 rows, and then the user can click on "Read full".

IPB does have a built-in function that might work. Sometimes it can be troublesome so another alternative would be to add div wrap with overflow.

Open Admin CP > Look & Feel Tab > select skin > Portal > articles

Find:
{$entry['post']}

Replace With:
{IPSText::truncate( $entry['post'], '2500' )} <a href='{parse url="showtopic={$entry['tid']}" base="public" seotitle="{$entry['title_seo']}" template="showtopic"}'>Read More</a>

Save. Change the number 2500 to adjust how many characters you want to show per topic.

Hi Michael.
Yes I know that, thank you.

Mine looks like this now:
<!--
	SKINNOTE: Remember boxes are also in skin_gallery_portal, skin_blog_portal and skin_downloads_external
	-The striping doesn't add the proper padding like the board index does
	-Poll is kinda ugly
	-Print and Email should be icons.  Note that I also used "moderation_bar" class for that row, which isn't necessarily
		semantic, but displays fine - your call on whether to change it
-->
<if test="disablelightbox:|:!$this->settings['disable_lightbox']">
{parse template="include_lightbox" group="global" params=""}
</if>
<div id='portal_articles' class='left'>
	<!--MAIN-->
	 <!--::recent_topics_last_x::-->
	 <!--END MAIN-->
</div>
<div id='index_stats' class='portal left'>
	<!-- LEFT -->
         <!--::show_newest_posts::-->
	 <!--::portal_sitenav::-->
	 <!--::online_users_show::-->
	 <!--::blogs_show_last_updated_x::-->
	 <!--::gallery_show_random_image::-->
         <!--::show_newest_members::-->
	 <!--::poll_show_poll::-->
         <!--::show_top_posters::-->
	 <!--::recent_topics_discussions_last_x::-->
	 <!--END LEFT-->
</div>
{parse template="include_highlighter" group="global" params="1"}
<script type='text/javascript'>
	// Resize images
	$$('.post', '.poll').each( function(elem){
		ipb.global.findImgs( $( elem ) );
	});
</script>

And I have also this mod called, "Create your own sideblocks in portal & forum", and you see the top 2 first there.
How do I decide the order on them? Where can I find them?
I would like it to be like this on the portal side blocks:

1. A box that shows a little forum statistics like:
Posts:
Views:
Members:
Users Online now:

2. Recently added posts <!--::show_newest_posts::-->
3. Facebook fan-page block (the one I created myself)
4. Video block (the one I created myself)
5. Newest members <!--::show_newest_members::-->
6. Website poll
7. Top posters
8. Top reputation (shows only in the forum. why?)
9. Latest discussions

HOW DO I FIX THIS?

I'm not aware of that mod, does it just pull the side block's into the forum? I'd imagine it would handle the ordering then.

In the description is does say Drag and Drop sorting. My guess is without access to the mod is it's similar to the application sort.

Yes I can, between the blocks that I made in that mod, which are two of them: "Video tip" and "Facebook page".

So, you see in my forum, it is like this:

- board videos
- donate sidebar
- video tip
- Facebook fan-page
- Recent topics added
- Top 5 ranked users

And in my portal, it is like this:

- video tip
- Facebook fan-page
- Online users
- Recently added posts
- Newest members
- Top Posters
- Website poll


Now can you please explain to me, where do I control these sidebars?
If I want these ones to be in BOTH in the forum and in the portal for example:

- Online users (I would love to extend it with this short stats block in the portal: http://community.inv...atistics-block/ is it possible?
- Recently added posts
- Facebook fan-page
- Board videos (from the forum sidebar)
- Newest members
- Top posters
- Top 5 ranked users
- donate sidebar (from the forum sidebar)
- video tip
- Website poll

How do I do this?

Well in the forums, you can use the drag and drop interface that's in the Admin CP > System Tab > Manage Hooks. Next to each hook to the left is an icon you can drag and re-order the hooks. Regarding this custom mod you have, having not used the mod before, I'm not sure where you control them.
