Sidebar elements

  • Sep. 30th, 2006 at 12:19 AM
I know some recent changed were made to chose which elements appear and in what order, but my issue is that I want to be able to move some elements from one sidebar to the other (layout-twt). For some reason as I was working on this all of my elements ended up in the Beta sidebar and I can't get the top 2 elements ("profile" and "lnks") to move over to the Gamma sidebar. Any ideas?

well, as a computer science minor who likes to muck around with crazy code, i would always advocate the use of a custom layer. i've posted on a thread from before there was the option of ordering the sidebar items with a relatively detailed guide on how you could move stuff around, including from one bar to another. the first post isn't that detailed and would confuse you if you've never played with the LJ code before, but further down the thread there's a step-by-step guide on how to go about it. and so, without further ado, here is the thread:

http://community.livejournal.com/lj_design/8323.html?thread=1080451#t1080451

i hope it helps, especially since i haven't tested it since after the various changes were made to the layout customization options, so let me know if it no longer works :)

as someone's just mentioned on that thread, apparently that doesn't work anymore.

and so sorry, i also just realized that you're the same person i wrote the guide for on that thread!

oh man, i'm so out of it it's inexcusable! sorry for wasting space!

haha, no problem ... I know the "out of it" feeling. :)

I actually was checking out the reply you gave me in the lj_design community earlier this morning to see if I was missing something. It worked the first time I followed your instructions, but when the update was made to allow the tags to be viewd as a list, I switched over to a default layer to see what it looked like, but when I went back to the custom layer my sidebars were messed up.

I have found a code that works for what I want though ... I figured you might want it for future reference if someone else has this issue. I simply added this to my auto-default layer:

base_theme= "weston-grey";

function Page::lay_sidebar_primary() {
print_module_tags("Tags");
}

function Page::lay_sidebar_secondary() {
print_module_userprofile("Profile", true, true);
print_module_links("Links");
}
