View Full Version : Need help install Text archive
09-09-2008, 11:14 PM
Need some help here, I would likt to have Text Archive, but I dont understand the instructions (yes, I´m new....):
The Text Archive addon will display the archive of your photoblog in a text list sorted by month. There is also another tag that will allow you to show your categories in the same type of view but sorted by category name.
1. Put text_archive.php in your addons folder.
2. Put <TEXTARCHIVE> on a template. Although you can use the browse template, I would suggest making another html template so you can still use the browse page for thumbnails. For the category archive, use <CATEGORYTEXTARCHIVE>
Number 1 I understand, but nr.2, can anyone explaine for me exactly what to do?

#2 is telling you to create a new _template.html file, similar to image_template.html, browse_template.html, etc. that are already in your theme folder.
Open browse_template.html in a plain text editor. Click "save as" and select the name you want to use for it, i.e. textarchive_template.html, and save it to the folder that your theme is in, inside the templates folder.
Now edit textarchive_template.html, and replace the <BROWSE_XX> tags with the <TEXTARCHIVE> or <CATEGORYTEXTARCHIVE> tag, whichever one it is you are wanting to display on that page, and save your changes.
Upload textarchive_template.html to your theme's folder on the server. You should then be able to link to that page by using the url http://www.yourdomain.tld/pp-folder/index.php?x=textarchive (replace yourdomain.tld and pp-folder with the correct names for your website.
Hope this helps! :)

I did exactly what you said, but all I got up with was this blank side http://www.mettebrandt.com/pixelpost/addons/text_archive.php?x=textarchive
But were do I put that link so the archive can be displayed?

You have your url wrong it should be something like this: http://www.mettebrandt.com/pixelpost/index.php?x=textarchive

Ok, that seem to be a page. But, as you see, there is no textarchive there. How do I get my archive like this http://blog.kevincrafts.com/index.php?x=list
And where do I put that correct link?

You have the tag wrong - you have <BROWSE_TEXTARCHIVE> when it should just be <TEXTARCHIVE>

That´s it, it worked!
Now I´m very happy.

How do you do that?

just put both the tags on the same page
09-16-2008, 11:29 PM
Do I put them aside, and what will be the link to the page? When I put the aside, only the one I wright first will show, not the second....

How can I put the side by side?

You can use tables or css to put the content into two columns
