Re: Adding A Custom FAQ Page

When I open footer.tpl this is what I see... a little confused....

<div id="footer">
                <!-- IF settings.enable_tellfriend OR settings.enable_invites -->
                    {anchor:url1="invitefriends/",url2="index.php?m=invitefriends",name="core|menu_invitefriends"} |
                <!-- ENDIF -->
                <!-- IF settings.enable_feedback -->
                    {anchor:url1="contactus/",url2="index.php?m=contactus",name="core|menu_contactus"} |
                <!-- ENDIF -->
                {anchor:url1="page/tos/",url2="index.php?m=pages&p=tos",name="core|menu_tos"}
                <!-- CREDIT LINE: UNAUTHORIZED REMOVAL WILL VOID LICENSE -->
                <!-- IF settings.enable_poweredby_link -->| {app_copyright}<!-- ENDIF -->
            </div>

Re: Adding A Custom FAQ Page

I have done this on my site: I should do a tutorial about this next week.

<div id="footer">
                <a href="http://www.yoursite.com/page/general/faq/" target="_self">Faq</a>
                <!-- IF settings.enable_tellfriend OR settings.enable_invites -->
                    {anchor:url1="invitefriends/",url2="index.php?m=invitefriends",name="core|menu_invitefriends"} |
                <!-- ENDIF -->
                <!-- IF settings.enable_feedback -->
                    {anchor:url1="contactus/",url2="index.php?m=contactus",name="core|menu_contactus"} |
                <!-- ENDIF -->
                    {anchor:url1="page/tos/",url2="index.php?m=pages&p=tos",name="core|menu_tos"}
                <!-- CREDIT LINE: UNAUTHORIZED REMOVAL WILL VOID LICENSE -->

Re: Adding A Custom FAQ Page

Gugu thank you soooo much, I looked all over the forums. I'm used to basic html, felt like an idiot as to where to add the 1 line of code in for a link LOL So worried I'm going to blow my site up. But want to get all the bases covered before more members start joining. I have a group of friends/members giving me feedback and if THEY have a hard time figuring out a few things I know others will too. A Faq page will save me hours of emails.  Thank you again, Lisa

Re: Adding A Custom FAQ Page

Hi I am hoping someone can help me out also on adding a FAQ page and Site Map page link to the bottom of my site, I am using "Soft Green".

I have created a new FAQ page in cp

However when I open the footer.tpl I only see the following code, I am having trouble locating which tpl file contains the footer links, hope someone can point me in the right direction.

Thanks

Re: Adding A Custom FAQ Page

password= go to ---> Control panel - settings - automation.
there can you find the password you have set in cron url.

<div id="footer">
                <a href="http://www.yoursite.com/page/general/faq/" target="_self">Faq</a>
                <!-- IF settings.enable_tellfriend OR settings.enable_invites -->
                    {anchor:url1="invitefriends/",url2="index.php?m=invitefriends",name="core|menu_invitefriends"} |
                <!-- ENDIF -->
                <!-- IF settings.enable_feedback -->
                    {anchor:url1="contactus/",url2="index.php?m=contactus",name="core|menu_contactus"} |

Re: Adding A Custom FAQ Page

Sorry I do not follow either of your cryptic posts, I had read the thread that you linked to, however it does not provide any information to help me resolve my issue.

It would be great if someone could point me to which tpl file has the code for the page links in the footer area of the "Soft Gren" template... and yes I have looked at the footer.tpl and it does not have the code so that I can add a new FAQ page link to the FAQ page I have already created.

As I post previously, the code I see in my footer.tpl file is nothing like the examples posted eailier in this thread.

I am trying to create in the footer area of the site;

Okey but I have give you the code here above ... now I don´t understand that you mean.
you should change it in /templates/softgreen/footer.tpl you must replace the code in you footer.tpl with this new one. and I must tell you some knowledge in html needs to understanding how it work. we can help you but you must have little knowledge self to change it in footer.tpl but we can give you some idea how it work.

<a href="http://www.your-domain.com/index.php?hp=1&m=cron&s=password" target="_self">Site map</a>

you must have you own cronurl if you not have it I can´t help you. instead of =password" you should write you own cronurl. It is not the same for all sites. go to ---> Control panel - settings - automation.
there can you find the password you have set in cron url. replace password with you own cronurl.
I link to the post you name "cryptic" there you can read about sitemap to get a idea about how it work.

Re: Adding A Custom FAQ Page

Thanks gugu,

With your info I have worked out where the correct footer.tpl file is located and was able to make the changes using your code, although I still cant get the default sitemap cronjob working correctly but that is another issue that I may resolve by using a third party sitemap.xml script

Thanks for your help smile

Re: Adding A Custom FAQ Page

Hello Gugu

When you change the footer template - Where is this template located on the host control panel? - I have never really accessed this before and if you can tell me what to click on to get there I would most appreciate it and will learn from that for next time.

Also if one makes changes should one make a copy of it and keep two in the root (one adjusted and one unadusted or will that confuse things.

Perhaps the copy on my PC of vld software which was downloaded in zip format is enough protection as backup. Or do I need to backup my 'control panel changes' once the site is ready to go.

Thanks! roll
