[Tip] Simple User control for a portal box

PostAuthor: richiebgood » Mon Feb 04, 2008 2:26 pm

I like this on my site. I used this .script from dynamic drive:
http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex17/floatbar.htm

The .script puts a floting static box in your browser than can be configure to close. I have the user block set up on mine. Once a user see's how many posts since last vist and clicks the link. they close the box and it reopens next time they log on.


How to do it:
Then I open the block file that I want, on my site i opend templates/efusion/blocks/user_block

I edited the block to get it how I wanted it to look.

I copied the code and pastes it in between the <div> tage of the .script from above.

Then go to acp/im portal / blocks config to enable user block.

Bang, it works.


Try it out, username: test

i think this might be what im' looking for with the news block.

after members have read a news article, will this enable them to close it so they dont keep seeing it every time they go back to the home page?

ok tried it out on your site - i closed the floating window quickly cos i found it annoying moving about with me.

is there a way to get this to work with the existing blocks so they can be closed even while static?

now this is more like it :

http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicinde ... llapse.htm

that'd be cool for the news block - once people hav read the news in one session, they dont wanna keep seeing it.


Update: It works perfectly!!! The news block just slides open and closed when the user wants it to.

triple :mrgreen:

we need to sort out your profile page tho - u still have phone number fields - who in their right mind would put their home telephone number on the internet?

I can not get that .script to work in IE. It will not stay closed. Did you have any trouble?

Hmm, its a pity because it is a lovel .script.

Although on the website, it works in IE. There must be some conflicting .scripts in IM portal putting it off.

I am still reading through it all. If you go ahead and post it up, Ill bump your thread later.

[Edit]

Bomb, I did it again!

Check this out:
http://www.dynamicdrive.com/forums/show ... ostcount=6

This makes it work, but it messes up my template a little bit.

More trouble.

not sure if the code box will let me post it here but my top line is now:

but my page starts with the doctype
DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/1999/REC-html401-19991224/loose.dtd"


and then <head>

then the java.script and the rest of the page.


I deleted the html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" line which follows the doctype.


I can't test it out cos i'm on a mac, hav u tried the same in yours and what is the result?
