View Full Version : Newbie Coder - Need help in running script as per forumID

14 Oct 2008, 17:49
Hi Guys,

M a total newbie with coding but ive been runnin VB forum for more than 2 years now.

I want to show different images in the header of forum, postbits, threads according to the forumID. Eg. if its forumID 10, i want to show a different image inside it all aruond and if its forum ID 11; i want to show some other image.

Earlier i had a code that checks the forum id in forumhome , forumdisplay, showthread etc templates and shows the image accordingly. But since its a lon code, inserting it in all the templates and changing them again and again is a pain.

Can i have a single separate file that decides upon what image to show and just call it inside those templates ? How can i do that ?

M a fresher so i might not be clear or it must be a silly question, but any help would be great.

Why don't you just do it in the navbar template (the bottom of that)?

<if condition="$forumid == 'xx'">
show banner for forumid xx

(not tested)
