No matter what I try, none of this works...

I have tried everything you have provided to the very letter, and it simply doesn't work at all... the variable is always null when I call for it in the template.

I'm trying to add a custom template to the forumhome_forumbit_level1_post template.

What am I doing wrong!?

Here's how I have it set up:

New Custom Template - title is: sponsorForumButtons

Right now I just have it filled with "TESTING THE NEW TEMPLATE"

I have added a new Plugin, which is active, in global_start (I've tried in forumdisplay_complete, forumdisplay_start, global_complete, all the forumhome hooks... I've tried every single hook location I could think of... none seem to work)

This is the exact code of the Plugin:

//Sponsor Forum Buttons

eval('$sponsorForumButtons = "' . fetch_template('sponsorForumButtons') . '";');

Then in the forumhome_forumbit_level1_post template I have:

$sponsorForumButtons

Right where I want it to show up.

No matter what I try the variable just doesn't show up... even if I EXPLICITLY set the variable in the forumdisplay_start (or any other) hook... shouldn't the global_complete hook be available to every template!? Even so, how is it that the variable is ALWAYS null? It seems like the variable will show up in the FORUMDISPLAY template, but if I put it into the forumhome_forumbit_level1_post template, the variable is inexplicably null.


I have even tried to cache the template in cache_templates and parse_templates. That code looks like this:

$globaltemplates[]='sponsorForumButtons';

NOTHING WORKS!

I am having a nervous breakdown. Please save me from killing myself...
