unwanted style change when using guestbook and contact form

Post by Col. Kurtz » Sat Oct 13, 2007 9:57 am

Ok I've done the following: created a 2 column layout (leaving out the left sidebar) and a 3 column layout. made the 2 column layout the standard one and used the front page category plugin together with the Properties/Templates of categories plugin to have the 3 column layout on the front page only.
Now If I select the guestbook or contact form plugins, they show the 3 column layout. Why? And how can I change that?

Because the "frontpage" actually means "when no category is selected". Sine when you call an external plugin, it is also not connected with a category, that layout shows up.

You might need to solve that by editing your index.tpl template and choose the right column variant by checking the $view variable (it is set to 'Frontpage' for the frontpage only).
