  • OR conditions

    Is there a way to specify OR conditions ? ie : node 43 OR node 56 ?
    • Re: OR conditions

      No, but you can place 2 groups in override.ini(.append.php) like in the following example:

      [magic_pockets_43]
      Source=node/view/full.tpl
      MatchFile=magic_pocket.tpl
      Subdir=templates
      Match[node]=43

      [magic_pockets_56]
      Source=node/view/full.tpl
      MatchFile=magic_pocket.tpl
      Subdir=templates
      Match[node]=56

      (Note that the group name must be diffent.)

      If you have set of many such nodes, you may consider creating a special class for those nodes or place them in special section (do not forget on permission settings in this case).
  • Override a pagelayout_bodycontent

    Suppose pagelayout.tpl as follows:

    "--------
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
    "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="{$site.http_equiv.Content-language|wash}" lang="{$site.http_equiv.Content-language|wash}">

    <head>

    {include uri="design:pagelayout_style.tpl"}
    {include uri="design:pagelayout_javascript.tpl"}

    {literal}
    <!--[if lt IE 6.0]>
    <style>
    div#maincontent-design { width: 100%; } /* This is needed to avoid width bug in IE 5.5 */
    </style>
    <![endif]-->
    {/literal}

    {include uri="design:page_head.tpl"}

    </head>
    <body>

    <div id="allcontent">

    <div id="topcontent">
    {include uri="design:pagelayout_topcontent.tpl"}
    </div>{* id="topcontent" *}

    <hr class="hide" />

    {include uri="design:pagelayout_topmenu.tpl"}

    <hr class="hide" />

    {include uri="design:pagelayout_path.tpl"}

    {include uri="design:pagelayout_bodycontent.tpl"}

    <hr class="hide" />

    {include uri="design:pagelayout_toolbarbottom.tpl"}

    {include uri="design:pagelayout_footer.tpl"}

    <div class="break"></div>
    </div>{* id="allcontent" *}

    <!--DEBUG_REPORT-->

    </body>
    </html>

    -------"

    I "override" pagelayout_bodycontent.tpl as follows:

    1. Put a new template in "frontpage/pagelayout_bodycontent.tpl".
    2. Write into override.ini.append.php
    [pagelayout_bodycontent_frontpage]
    Source=pagelayout_bodycontent.tpl
    MatchFile=frontpage/pagelayout_bodycontent.tpl
    Subdir=templates
    Match[node]=2

    But the result is not OK. The override pagelayout_bodycontent.tpl not run.
  • match condition on url_alias

    Hi,

    Just to mention that match on url_alias is recursive.

    Match[url_alias]=my_folder
    will override not only my_folder content, but also all its children
    (tried with pagelayout override).
    It's a good idea, to avoid use of section, but it's not really told in the doc.
