Andreas 08: language selection instead of search form

Post by Col. Kurtz » Wed Nov 29, 2006 1:13 pm

Please go to this website. You notice I have made some minor changes in the Andreas08 template. I kicked out the search form. The next sidebar plugin below is the language selection.

Is there a solution that I can put the language selection to that line where the search field was located? It doesn't have to be the dropdown menu, some "normal" links would also do this for me.

Thank you.
Marc

Hi!

You can set that dropdown plugin to "Hidden" and then use Smarty functions to print a menu - have a look at the technical docs in the "doing more with smarty" document: {serendipity_showPlugin} or sth like that.

HTH,

Hi!

You can wrap the plugin in your own HTML <div>, and then use CSS to hide the headline (display: none) that appears in your custom DIV!

Best regards,
