How to add custom code to spesific forum or subforum page ?

Post by Bymemor »

I have ads banner codes. But because this is educational ad banner, I only add this banner code to the page of a specific forum.

For example, I have education forum and off topic forum. I want to add this code and happen all changes on education forum.

How could I achieve that ? Maybe this can be handled with forum id or another smt. but I am not sure.

Wrap your code inside if statement f.e

Code: Select all

<!-- IF S_FORUM_ID == '5' -->
	Your code
<!-- ENDIF -->
change 5 to whatever your forum id is you want the code to show up

Nowhere, that is the case. I want to place my code now to exact subforum. So, should I add into viewforum_body.html or somewher else and if I wrap code where will it be shown up in specific forum page ? (I mean top, bottom or anywhere else)

probably in viewforum_body.html

try opening that file in your text editor and just type the word "hello" somewhere on the page.
save the file, upload back to the server and purge the cache to see the change. based on where the word hello appears on the page you can then go back and adjust until you get the word hello right where you want the banner to show up.

now, find the forum ID number of your education forum. ( hover over the forum title and look at the status bar
at the bottom of the page and it will show you the forum ID number ).
now, back in the viewforum_body.html file. find the spot you decided on for the banner and type this:

Code: Select all

<!-- IF S_FORUM_ID == '5' -->
	Your html/css for the banner you want
<!-- ENDIF -->
changing the 5 to whatever your forum ID is.

save the file, upload , purge, check.
