Same <content:encoded issue>

Hello Garvin In reference to this very same issue, is there a variable attributed to an entry that would correspond to a "description" of it, in other words maybe just the few first lines, or is there a way to create one? I'm having the same issue, the aggregator on the other end won't read the <con...

Well, that wasn't helping me so much because I needed to display the category description instead of the blog name, but I found what I was looking for in the index.php file, at the point where the values are assigned to the two fields. Here's what my index.php now looks like (lines 236 to 240): The ...

Hello again Garvin, Thanks for your suggestion, it does help and I now have the category name appear along with the blog name on the second line of the header, in category display. But I was hoping to be able to modify the code at its source rather than in the index.tpl file, so that I could - in "b...

The category descriptions don't appear anywhere

I was all happy at setup to be able to type in a nice description for each of my categories. But now after many months, I finally realized that those descriptions didn't appear anywhere in the blog (apart from the admin page of course). I looked around and found that I had replaced the main (first) ...

Hello Garvin, Thank you, once again, for your invaluable help . Yours was an impeccable answer to my question; I followed your instructions to create a dump with phpMyAdmin, I corrected the file and uploaded the result. Done! And yes, I realize that using font tags was a pretty dumb idea to begin wi...

Doing a blog-wide modification to fonts

Hello, I have been styling the font color of my entries via the WYSIWYG editor for over 120 entries now. But since nobody is ever happy without change, I decided to completely redesign my template and now with a light colored background, most of the entries' font color is too pale and barely readabl...

LOL

Yep, that did it. That'll teach me not to make smart ass jokes about the meaning of life ;-) How humbling to receive such a basic - but rather crucial - lesson in HTML after messing with it for so many years!

Thanks Garvin, help much appreciated!

Hey Garvin, I really appreciate your time! I am using absolute paths because I know the answer to the meaning of life is 42 However, here's the url that works fine (notice the menu in the header, below the Portal title, it's positionned with absolute coordinates and independant from any HTML tag): m...

Nah, already checked that. I get warnings, but no errors. Besides, when the first page loads correctly, I get quite a few warnings about the menu script, proving that it's loading, but on the second page, no warnings at all, so for some reason I assume the script is simply not being run again... Don...

Well Garvin, Thanks to your suggestion, I've pretty much solved my issues. The template/index.tpl was indeed where I needed to work. I've added some of my HTML content there, and adapted the rest to fit inside the style.css of the template. A strange thing happens, though. My main upper menu is java...

Hi Garvin, And thanks for your prompt reply! I got a kick out of your message, one because I thought I had disabled the option to subssribe to RSS feeds (for simplicity, I need to turn it on again, and thanks for the compliment but you obviously know your way around the script. And two because you i...

Can't display the "next page" of entries (older en

I could swear it was working before... Any way, I am using Serendipity 0.8 in an awkward non-embeded configuration, even though it resides inside my HTML web site, in a DIV. That's the only way I found back then to have everything work fine and retain Serendipity's own CSS without major PHP coding. ...

Thanks for the reply!

All right, no big deal any way. I can live without it, it'll just put a little more strain on my coffee-abused memory... ;-)

Thanks Garvin!

Where is my Emoticon Chooser?

Hi, I just installed the emoticonChooser plugin (via Spartacus and v.08-B1) but although the administration page Manage Plugins shows it installed, I don't actually see it in the New Entry page. What is it supposed to look like, is it a popup or does it add itself on or near the WYSIWYG editor? Any ...
