Movable Radio Modern Template Changes

July 30, 2005 Comments Off on Movable Radio Modern Template Changes

changing the location of the calendar and adding a picture to Bryan Bell’s MOVABLE RADIO MODERN theme

first thing this assumes that you are already using Movable Radio Modern as your theme

second thing –  go to this page with Radio open

1. Adding a picture to above the calendar

Go back to this page –

Scroll down (its about 13 lines from the bottom) until you find <div id=”links”>

You’re going to add an image source link macro to the code – this assumes that you’ve already upstream the image to your images folder – I added a marble jpeg to my template and I wanted it centered

<p align=”center”>
<img src=””></p>

techically you should use the radio macro but for the life of me I can’t get it to work…html code works..just find the url of the image and paste that in place of my url image code

click on submit, post something and see if you’re picture has showed up above the calendar

ok..trying to write a newbie tip here what the hell does this mean: [Macro error: String constant isn’t correctly specified. Must be of the form “abcd”.] I could go look it up in the kickstart book, but I haven’t the foggiest idea where I put that book, ok strike that thought, figured it out, I left out a slash…apparently I’ve lost my mind, it suppose to work with the radio macro, why isn’t it working? oh well, html coding works too.

2. Now onto moving the calendar to below the navigator links

Go back to this page

Scroll down til you find this code again <div id=”links”>

You’re going to cut this code

<table border=”0″ cellspacing=”0″ cellpadding=”8″ align=”center”>
                  <%radio.weblog.drawcalendar ()%>

and then paste it back two lines down below the navigator links code (shown below in blue)

also you’ll be adding a space right in front of the paste code (shown in teal below)

it will look like this after you’ve pasted the code back into the template under the navigator links

 <div class=”sidetitle”>Navigation</div>
<div class=”side”><%navigatorLinks%></div>

<p> <table border=”0″ cellspacing=”0″ cellpadding=”8″ align=”center”>
                  <%radio.weblog.drawcalendar ()%>

click on submit, post something and your calendar, cross your fingers will be under the navigator links and its works..wahoo

repeat for the main template if needed  – go to this page – and repeat steps 1 and 2
