Seperate headers

Hi

Is it possible to deliver seperate headers to different sections within Vanilla, for example, for any template under the /entry/ folder I want to use a seperate default_master.tpl - is this doable?

    I would think so.

    $Sender->MasterView = 'default';

    create a file called 'chrisgwynne.master.php

    $Sender->MasterView = 'chrisgwynne'

    change the master view to what you want based on the url.

    however if you are looking at just changing banner, it might be easier just loading a new css based on url.

    For my purpose I need an entire different view that wouldn't be alterable by CSS alone.

    I'm new to the Vanilla framework however, where would I need to alter/add this $Sender->MasterView details.

    I would go with theme hooks on the controller's magic render before method.

    E.g.

    public function DiscussionController_Render_Before($Sender) {
      $Sender->MasterView = 'chrisgwynne';
    }

    you might try

    if you are looking at entry controller. e.g.

    public function Base_Render_Before($Sender) {
            if (($Sender->MasterView == 'default' || $Sender->MasterView == '') && C('Themes.EmbedFriendly.SingleColumn'))
                $Sender->AddCSSFile('singlecolumn.css');
                $Sender->MasterView = 'error';
        }
    
    
    or
    
    public function EntryController_Render_Before($Sender) {
            if (($Sender->MasterView == 'default' || $Sender->MasterView == '') && C('Themes.EmbedFriendly.SingleColumn'))
                $Sender->AddCSSFile('singlecolumn.css');
                $Sender->MasterView = 'error';
        }

    there are numerous discussions explaing how to use themehooks, or you could make a plugin - similar to admin theme switcher or mobile theme switcher for good and bad clues.

    Okay so I added

    public function EntryController_Render_Before($Sender) {
    $Sender->MasterView = 'entry';
    }

    to a custom hook file in the theme folder, i have a entry.master.tpl file set up in the correct folder. It generates an error on the server.

    where did you put entry.master.tpl it should be in the views folder of your theme.

    i tried .tpl files and php files and they both work in themehooks, the example above works for me if I have error.master.php in my theme folder.

    I'm using the default theme, and i've placed entry.master.tpl simply in /applications/dashboard/views/ - where the default.master.tpl resides.

    it's not a good idea to do that.

    create your own theme in the themes folder.

    then add the views and changes there.

    read up on how to create a theme - one of the announcements.

    Will do, thank you. I've got this to work now, many many thanks. But i'll read up on own theme creation.

    I wish people would not edit the default theme.... There should be some kind of warning in the documentation about doing this... At the very least encourage people to make their own or use a downloaded one Even if it's a copy of the default
