Inserting custom HTMl just within BODY tags

edited February 2007 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
Hi, i figured this out in an earlier version of Vanilla but the structure is quite different in the latest install. I am looking to add a new DIV tag just within the BODY tags of the pages output by vanilla. So i would have <body id="DiscussionsPage" > <div class"forumholder"> Rest of page. </div> </body> I know my way around basic php but what files do i edit to place this code? I am trying to make the forum fit in with the style of the rest of the page. Thanks, Alan


  • I think it could be done by a theme change or an extension. theme files are located under themes. Make a new folder folder for your edited theme files and copy the correct one into that folder and edit to suit your needs.
  • The head.php has the start of the body tag.
  • but yo probably want your div inside the content div no?, unless it would be a sort of heading.
  • No directly within the Body Tag. I want to insert standard header with site navigation and the footer from the rest of the site. I will look at head.php. Thanks. Any idea of footer?
  • probably foot.php :) Ok thanks guys.
  • Actually it is page_end.php What i have done is put an include in each file for the header and footer to minimise the amount of editing i do to the forum code itself. Thanks for the replies.
  • Hi Guys, this is the end result! Feedback welcome.
  • looks pretty cool.
