Adding Portals to the Gallery Page

PLEASE ENTER THE FOLLOWING>>>>


Enter your myff forum url here (or link to your specific problem) :
http://rti.myfineforum.org/index.php?component=gallery


Please indicate keywords you have searched on:
gallery portals

Now ask your question in clear English without "txt" speak>>>>
How do I add the portals shown on my main index page here:
http://rti.myfineforum.org/index.php

To the gallery page linked above?

You can't add extra portals to a link that just shows a portal.

You need to create a web page that contains more than one portal.

e.g.

it would have:

{MYFF.GALLERY}

plus the extra portals you want.
Ask Mr. Religion

Well, it is not the most elegant solution, but it works for me:

coulda sworn I posted here?

open up you cms_index_body.tpl and find something similar:

Code:
 <table width="100%" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="2">
 <tr>
 <td width="125" align="left" valign="top">

  </td>
 <td valign="top" align="center"><table width="100%" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="2" border="0" align="center">
  <tr>
</tr>

   <td valign="top">
   <table border="0" cellpadding="3" cellspacing="1" width="100%"  align="center">
 


now look for this bit inside that:
Code:
 <td width="125" align="left" valign="top">
{MYFF.PUTMEHERE}
  </td>


that gap between the opening of the td and the close of the td is where you need to place your mainmenu portal.

it should show your menu portal on the side like so: http://portalogy.myfastforum.org/index.php?component=gallery
Ask Mr. Religion

That won't work.

My CMS Index Body TPL is as follows:

Code:

<table width="100%" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="2" border="0" align="center">
  <tr>
</tr>
   <td valign="top">
   <table border="0" cellpadding="3" cellspacing="1" width="100%"  align="center">
  
   <tr><td>{MYFF.DESCRIPTION}</td></tr>{MYFF.COMPONENT}
   <tr><td>
   </td>
   </tr>
   </table>

   </span>
   </td>
  </tr>
</table>


Adding your solution only places a portal component at the bottom of the page just as the one I already have there: http://rti.myfineforum.org/index.php?component=gallery

It looks like I need an additional column defined located to the left of the gallery form for portal containers.

What have I done wrong or misunderstood?

Code:
<table width="100%" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="2" border="0" align="center">
  <tr>
<td valign="top" width="150">{MYFF.MAINMENU}</td>
   <td valign="top">
   <table border="0" cellpadding="3" cellspacing="1" width="100%"  align="center">
  
   <tr><td>{MYFF.DESCRIPTION}</td></tr>{MYFF.COMPONENT}
   <tr><td>
   </td>
   </tr>
   </table>

   </span>
   </td>
  </tr>
</table>
Ask Mr. Religion

That will do, Nick! Thanks.
