Templates without left sidebar?

OK, looks like I need to try and emulate my site with a custom template. First place to start are the existing template.... First thing I notice is this: Why do so many templates seem to ignore the sidebar placement for left, and is there an easy way to correct that? At least when I look at them, I ...

Well, I have yet to defeat the supression of my FrontPage theme, but I am coming to a conclusion here - so let me know if this is correct. It appears that, while I can certainly output the blog to my own page, the reality is this - any time you hit "comment", and after such a comment is posted, I'm ...

Don't know if this is correct, but I tried the following: chdir("serenity"); require("index.php"); chdir(".."); It seemed to work. Sort of, now I need to figure out some other things: 1) I am not getting my MS FrontPage theme elements in, and it makes me wonder if it is related to the fact that this...

Gee - can you tell I'm subscribed to this topic? I'm definitely missing something in the syntax for file names and changing directories. I have s9y installed at m My file, serendipity_wrapper.php is located at m What is the correct syntax/path for: chdir("serenity_directory"); require("index.php"); ...

judebert - my last reply was being written when you posted yours just before, so I didn't see it.

Instead of modifying the index.tpl, how about if I just select "hidden" for the side bar stuff? Not sure what that will look like within my page, but it could be a start.

OK - I gather from other things I have read that your suggestion, is itself, a replacement for the index.tpl file. Then I need a wrapper.php file: <?php ob_start(); chdir("<serendipity_dir>"); require("index.php"); chdir("<original_dir>"); $serendipity_contents = ob_get_contents(); ob_end_clean(); ?...

Looks like you posted while I was just about to ask another question. Based on your original reply in which you supplied a modified index.tpl file, it occurs to me that I might not be on the right track. Am I adding further modifications to a custom index.tpl file (starting with your example), or am...

judebert - to make the best of your valuable time, I thought I would post an update. First, I am still having difficulties viewing my server files. All signs point to FrontPage extensions, but being no expert, I have no real idea. I deleted a bunch of files, removed & reinstalled FP extensions, ...

Thanks again judebert. Using FrontPage, I can tell it to overwrite everything already on the destination. However, doing so will not delete anything that doesn't get updated. For instance, if there is a file 123.php already there, and that file does not exist in the upgrade, it will still be there o...

As I understand it, ANY FTP access will screw up the FrontPage Extensions, and I proved that a few days ago. Reinstalling the extensions solved the problem. I can "reverse publish" the Serendipity files from the server to my local computer, make changes as needed, then publish them back. I was about...

Well, I'm on the phone with tech support (godaddy) and they can see all the files and folders - the data is still there, as I suspected, I just cannot see all of it for some reason. They are looking into whether it is related to another ticket I opened yesterday. Any of you server gurus have any sug...

Thanks for the reply judebert. Before I can begin moving in the direction you suggest, I need to get the index.tpl file. However, when I look at my directory structure under /serendipity/, this is all I see: bundled-libs deployment docs htmlarea include lang comment.php exit.php That's it! Now, I KN...

Microsoft FrontPage and Serendipity

Big time noob here. Let me start by saying I am really impressed by Serendipity!! Hats off to the development team!! I have little web experience. In fact, the site I am working on is only the 3rd time I have ever attempted such a thing, the the previous 2 were the earlier generations of the same si...
