User Controllable <!--INCLUDE-->'s?

Post by Aden »

Does anyone know if it is possilbe to add something in the users profile so that they can configure what <!--INCLUDE -->'s Load and what dont.

I have a Top Panel i am working on, it has three sections,
i use includes to get the file content for the three sections.

I was wondering if it would be possilbe to add something in the UCP so that a user could control which includes he wanted the page to load (eg, login panel, welcome message and latest announcements) of a choice.

Any Ideas.

All help appreciated.

Do a simple conditionnal test :

Code: Select all

<!-- IF xxx -->
	<!-- INCLUDE blah1 -->
<!-- ELSEIF yyy -->
	<!-- INCLUDE blah2 -->
<!-- ELSEIF zzz -->
	<!-- INCLUDE blah3 -->
<!-- ENDIF -->

For example, if you wanted to include welcome message first create an option such as "Enable Welcome Message" for the user's profile with a Yes/No option. Then you take that variable and use it for your conditional statement.

Code: Select all

<!-- IF EnableWelcome -->
   <!-- INCLUDE WelcomeMessage -->
<!-- IF EnableLoginBox -->
   <!-- INCLUDE LoginBox -->
I don't know if that would work, I have not looked at additional profile options or the template conditional system yet.

Code: Select all

<!-- IF ENABLE_WELCOMEMESSAGE --><!-- INCLUDE Wwlcomemessage.html --><!-- ENDIF -->
<!-- IF LOGINBOX --><!-- INCLUDE loginbox.html --><!--ENDIF -->
IF tags must be uppercase, and be closed with <!-- ENDIF -->, included requires existing page.
