Rearranging Blogs

At the top of our blog we have all of our blogs listed

http://www.scrapbookersplayground.com/blogs

I would like to rearrange those tabs

I found this post

http://forums.b2evolution.net/viewtopic.php?t=6709&highlight=rearrange

but am unsure how to change the number so they will reorder. I do know my tabs are numbered by order.

Any help would be appreciated

Thanks

Hi Colleen, The only way that I know of to renumber your blogs is to do so directly in the database, though just changing the blog ID would break your categories, posts, etc. I'm not sure how far you're willing to go for this, but unless you are very comfortable working in a database and working with foreign keys then I would suggest *not* doing so.

If you just want to list them alphabetically then you could change /skins/_bloglist.php to this:

<?php
	/**
	 * This is the template that displays the links to the available blogs
	 *
	 * This file is not meant to be called directly.
	 * It is meant to be called by an include in the _main.php template.

	 *
	 * @package evoskins
	 */
	if( !defined('EVO_MAIN_INIT') ) die( 'Please, do not access this page directly.' );

if( ! $display_blog_list )
{ // We do *not* want the blog list to be displayed
	return;
}

# this is what will start and end your blog links
if(!isset($blog_list_start)) $blog_list_start = '<ul>';
if(!isset($blog_list_end)) $blog_list_end = '</ul>';
# This is what will separate items in the list
if(!isset($blog_list_separator)) $blog_list_separator = '';
# this is what will separate your blog links
if(!isset($blog_item_start)) $blog_item_start = '<li>';
if(!isset($blog_item_end)) $blog_item_end = '</li>';
# This is the class of for the selected blog link:
if(!isset($blog_selected_link_class)) $blog_selected_link_class = '';
# This is the class of for the other blog links:
if(!isset($blog_other_link_class)) $blog_other_link_class = '';
# This is additionnal markup before and after the selected blog name
if(!isset($blog_selected_name_before)) $blog_selected_name_before = '[';
if(!isset($blog_selected_name_after)) $blog_selected_name_after = ']';
# This is additionnal markup before and after the other blog names
if(!isset($blog_other_name_before)) $blog_other_name_before = '';
if(!isset($blog_other_name_after)) $blog_other_name_after = '';
# This is the blogparam that will be displayed as the name:
if(!isset($blog_name_param)) $blog_name_param = 'shortname';
# This is the blogparam that will be displayed as the link title:
if(!isset($blog_title_param)) $blog_title_param = 'name';


$blog_links = array(); // we collect all links first, to easily implode them

for( $curr_blog_ID = blog_list_start();
			$curr_blog_ID != false;
			 $curr_blog_ID = blog_list_next() )
{
	if( !blog_list_iteminfo( 'in_bloglist', false ) )
	{ // don't show
		continue;
	}
	$blog_link = $blog_item_start;
	if( $curr_blog_ID == $blog )
	{ // This is the blog being displayed on this page:
		$blog_link .= '<a href="';
		$blog_link .= blog_list_iteminfo('blogurl', false);
		$blog_link .= '" class="'.$blog_selected_link_class.'" title="';
		$blog_link .= format_to_output( blog_list_iteminfo($blog_title_param, false), 'htmlattr' );
		$blog_link .= '">';
		$blog_link .= $blog_selected_name_before;
		$blog_link .= format_to_output( blog_list_iteminfo($blog_name_param, false ), 'htmlbody' );
		$blog_link .= $blog_selected_name_after;
		$blog_link .= '</a>';
	}
	else
	{ // This is another blog:
		$blog_link .= '<a href="';
		$blog_link .= blog_list_iteminfo('blogurl', false);
		$blog_link .= '" class="'.$blog_other_link_class.'" title="';

		$blog_link .= $blog_other_name_after;
		$blog_link .= '</a>';
	} // End of testing which blog is being displayed
	$blog_link .= $blog_item_end;

	//use $blog_name_param as a named key for sorting later on.
	$blog_links[blog_list_iteminfo($blog_name_param, false )] = $blog_link;
}

//Order the blogs alphabetically based on the array keys (using $blog_name_param)
ksort($blog_links);

// Output:
echo $blog_list_start;
echo implode( $blog_list_separator, $blog_links );
echo $blog_list_end;


/*
 nolog */
?>

You could take this a step further and order them in specific order by doing something like this:

<?php
	/**

In both cases, my changes start on line 82 of the original file as of b2evolution version 1.8.5.

Good luck!

Thank you this does work but I assume since I am using a custom skin it is not displaying my tabs correctly. Or maybe a different version.

It is cutting of the right side of the tab. I appreciate your time and effort to provide me with this code. If I can figure out how to fix the tab I will definitely be using it.

Hi Colleen - If you upload your original skin's _bloglist.php file I can try to see if there is a conflict some where.

Sorry I don't know how to do that scroll thing

It's the "PHP" button if you want stuff in color like xangelusx did, or the "Code" button for the dull way I did it.

xangelusx thanks for the hacks. It's cool to have groovy options that can be implemented in the skin.

There wasn't more than a line or two of differences between your file and mine, but lets try one of these. The first is for alpha sorting and you should be able to just drop it in place of the old _bloglist.inc.php. The second is for custom sorting and will require some work on your part to put the blogs in the correct order, which starts on line 104.

If neither of these work then I'll need the version of b2evolution that you are running (listed at the bottom of each Admin page) and the name of the skin(s) that you're using.

If you are usin multiple skins then you should place the code above into /skins/_bloglist.inc.php. If you are using a single skin then it may be easier to replace the _bloglist.inc.php file in the skin's directory.

Hi

I'm new to the b2evo world, i've tryed for some weeks now to get WP to work, but there are just to many problems, so i started looking for another and better Blog, and this looks very much like something i could use, it's a powerful script, lots of features, and very nice too :)

But i was looking to change the order of the Blog's and found this thread...

I'm not sure exactly how to use the code, i'm on a clean install with the costum skin, but when i use the code directly, i get an error as you can see on my site www.kosmologiblog.dk :(

	{
		return $this->$parname;
	}

I'm not sure if the code i usable for every skin or for a specific one ?

Best regards

Hi Carsten,

First, welcome to b2evo-land. It's a beautiful place with plenty of helpful citizens.

On to the topic at hand - AFAIK this hack should work in the latest version of B2evolution. Have you followed the directions in my [url=#47414]post[/url] above?

If that still doesn't work, try posting your current _bloglist.php and we'll go from there

Hi xangelusx

Thanks, and thanks for replying :)

Yep, i tryed copy/pasting both codes, from both the post, but with the same result :(

The Alpha version works fine, no problem there, it's only the Custom sort that gives the errors, i'm using the lastest ver. of b2evo, 1.9.2

I would gladly post my file, but it's exactly like the ones you've posted, and i also tryed copy/pasting from line 82 and down, and it gives the same error..

Best regards

Hi xangelusx

I have now tryed to delete and reinstall b2evo, so it's completly clean

I then tryed from the first code-set, pasting from line 82, and then from the second code-set, pasting from line 45, i get the same errors :(

Here is my orig _blocklist.php code

Save that over your existing _bloglist.php file (backup your original, just in case) and see what happens. There wasn't any difference between my code an yours besides the hacks I added and a few different values for some of the blog variables...

Feb 15, 2007 05:01

PS: If you're still getting an error after this please View Source on the page in your browser and post the whole of the code that appears. Maybe there's a PHP error that isn't showing up, but that we can see in the code itself.

Feb 15, 2007 07:52

G'day.

I took the two files listed in one of your posts above and saved them as _bloglist_alpha_sort.php and _bloglist_custom_sort.php then called for both of them in my _main.php file wrapped in an "if is_logged_in()" thing. I get the following error displayed on my blog for each blog in the custom_sort version:

Notice: Undefined property: blog_ID in /my/blog/path/inc/MODEL/dataobjects/_dataobject.class.php on line 461

Clearly the issue isn't the named file, but after tinkering a bit I couldn't figure out how to make the custom sort version of bloglist know something that would make line 461 of the mentioned file happy. I tried booze. I tried money. I thought about trying flowers but that *never* works, so I gave up.

Hi xangelusx

Thanks for looking into this :)

But isen't that the code from the alpha-sort you posted...??

The alpha-sort works fine, it's the custom-sort that doesn't

Hi again xangelusx

I found the problem, the "blog_ID" does not exist, the correct name is just "ID", that does the trick :)

    $blog_links[blog_list_iteminfo('blog_ID', false )] = $blog_link;

Should be

$blog_links[blog_list_iteminfo('ID', false )] = $blog_link;

Without the "blog_" - it's in line 85

Now it works perfect, i wasen't that stupid at all, i guess - LOL

Have a great day

Best regards
Carsten, Denmark

Thanks Boblebad! I poked around with it in various places EXCEPT the one that would actually fix the problem. (BTW I think this is version-specific. I *think* it worked the other way in 1.8.* installations, but obviously wouldn't work in 1.9.* installations.)

Feb 15, 2007 20:28

Thanks for the correction Carsten. I think EdB is correct, but I think it might even be a difference between 1.9.1 and 1.9.2. :) I'm still running 1.9.1, so I didn't catch it. Glad you got it working though! (And sorry for the mix up with the alpha vs custom sort, I wasn't sure which one you meant)

Feb 15, 2007 21:20

Hi again

Yep, that has crossed my mind too, that it had something to do with 1.9.2, cause others who uses older versions don't have the problem...

But then i have to ask, is it a good thing to change something like that when sending out a new version, it could give alot of problems when you're going to fiddle with the skins

It must also be confusing for developer/supporter, like now, trying to figure what's going wrong, and then it's because of a change of "blog_ID" to "ID", i don't remember what it's called, is it a tag, label or class, or 4. thing, sorry, i'm not that good at php :(

Now, i'm on to putting SMF to the site :)

Ehh, not exactly to that site, but another one like it www.kosmologinet.dk where i need a discussion forum, for questions aso.

Lets see what fun pops up there :)

Thanks for putting time into this :)

Btw, maybe it would be a good idea to put the changes in the post that contains the codes..

Best regards
Carsten, Denmark

Seems I spoke too soon. Currently I get NOTHING from the custom sorted version of this. That'd be after changing blog_ID to ID. The alphabetical sort works though so that's cool.

Hooray! I didn't look at what was different between what I had and what you posted, but yours worked so mine's gone. This is a really good hack. Anyone mind if I summarize it as a new post over in the plugins and hacks forum? We'd have to warn users about the 1.9.1 versus 1.9.2 thing, but that shouldn't be too big a deal.
