View Full Version : Entry Page Addon / Navigation question
07-18-2008, 12:15 AM
I'm using the Entry Page Addon to direct visitors to my about page first. I have a link at the top of my page that used to take them to the photos, no matter where they were on my website, but now that the about page is my default page, that link just takes them there.
How do I have to code that link to take them to the most recent photo?
I tried index.php?x=image, but that takes me to a page where there are no images.
I also tried index.php?showimage=<IMAGE_LAST_ID>, but that link only works on the image template page.
So basically, my question is how do I write a link to my image template page from any page on my website?

I don't actually get what you mean.
Do you want to put a link on your menu that links to your latest photo?
If you want to put a link to your image template page, you need to specify a ID (like: index.php?showimage=168), otherwise I think you must enter from the browse page (index.php?x=browse).

If your site is in the root folder
Or if your site is in a subfolder:

@ Ecosee: It doesn't help. The Entry Page Addon has changed my front page, so if I go to the index.php of my pixelpost installation, I just get pushed to my about page (which is how I set it up, so it's supposed to do that).
@ Ranmajen: Yes. I want a link to my latest photo. Usually that link would just be index.php, but off course, that leads to my about page now. If I specify an ID, how do I know it takes me to my latest photo? According to pixelpost tag list, <IMAGE_LAST_ID> only works from the image template page. And I don't want to travel through my browse page. I don't use it at all and I don't want my readers to go there. I just want them to be able to have a link that leads straight to the newest image, i.e. straight to the image template page.
Is it possible that I might have to go into the pixelpost file and manually create a new variable there that would let me do it? I used this forum as a last resort after reading all the documentation, so I don't think there is an easy workaround.

So does anyone know of a way around this? Should I try find out who made the Entry Page Addon and send them a PM?

Could you make a page using the latest addon?
You can choose to show the image or thumbnail.
