Adding Panel Back to People Pages

edited October 2006 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
I'm working on integrating Vanilla with an existing web site. The existing site's navbar is laid out in a left hand column; its stored in a central file and included across the site via server side includes. My custom theme contains a modification of panel.php to pull in that navbar and insert Vanilla's panel in the proper place. The problem is that the entire navbar (instead of just Vanilla's panel) disappears when I hit any of the people pages (e.g. signing in, signing up, signing out, etc.). Is there any way to override this behavior?

    Take a look at the appg/init_vanilla.php and appg/init_people.php pages. You'll see that the vanilla one instantiates the panel and adds it to the page, while the people one doesn't.

    You can alter the init_vanilla to do it as well, or you can write an extension to add the panel and make sure that the extension is included *first* in the conf/extensions.php file.

    Note that you will likely need to also alter the people templates so that the xhtml works with the placement of the panel.

    Thanks Mark. Hacking init_vanilla did the trick, so I'm now working on turning it into an extension.

    isn't this what the sidepanel extension does? That's what I used to make links and a navbar on the sidepanel for vanilla.

    Yeah but the sidepanel doesnt make the sidebar appear on the login pages does it crazyotaku?
  • Options
    oh nope, why would you need it on the login pages though?

    Because this guys integrating vanilla with the rest of his site and presumably he still needs his own side panel on those pages.
