[Solved] Is there a list of actions vs templates?

Post by Gumboots » Sun Nov 10, 2019 11:41 pm

I'm after a list of which actions (or sections) correlate to which templates in Prosilver.

For example, ?search_id=unreadposts renders its results in search_results.html. However, if you run a search within a forum, then that action renders its results in a different format (as individual posts) and does it in a mysterious template currently unknown to me.

So if there's a handy list of what leads to which template somewhere, that would be really cool.
Does such a thing exist?

Not aware of such a list, which isn't to say one doesn't exist.

My presumption would have been you're looking at the search_results.html template in both cases, but seeing the difference of the <!-- IF S_SHOW_TOPICS --> logic contained within that single template.

If there actually was another template involved, the way to find it would be looking in search.php to see what alternative template it conditionally assigns, instead of search_results.html. i.e. There would be more than one $template->set_filenames() call made under different conditions; or there would be a single $template->set_filenames() call but using a variable that was conditionally set to a different filename.

It would be a nifty thing to have. I might have to trundle over to Area 51 and suggest it. I did try the docs, but no joy.

Doesn't seem to be, as I can't find any markup in that file that matches what is rendered.

ETA: Hang on. Found it. D'oh. The dodgey indentation was throwing me off the scent. I hate dodgey indentation (really).

Righty-o then. Off to sources I go. *grabs shovel*

If you look in includes/functions.php you'll find this array at the bottom, this is just the start of it:

Code: Select all

	// The following assigns all _common_ variables that may be used at any point in a template.
	$template->assign_vars(array(
		'SITENAME'						=> $config['sitename'],
		'SITE_DESCRIPTION'				=> $config['site_desc'],
You will also find an array the bottom of each main PHP file like search.php that contains similar array. Note the last one, you now have switch which can be used in templates to turn on or off something when in search.

Code: Select all

$template->assign_vars(array(
	'S_SEARCH_ACTION'		=> append_sid("{$phpbb_root_path}search.$phpEx", false, true, 0), // We force no ?sid= appending by using 0
	'S_HIDDEN_FIELDS'		=> build_hidden_fields($s_hidden_fields),
	'S_CHARACTER_OPTIONS'	=> $s_characters,
	'S_FORUM_OPTIONS'		=> $s_forums,
	'S_SELECT_SORT_DIR'		=> $s_sort_dir,
	'S_SELECT_SORT_KEY'		=> $s_sort_key,
	'S_SELECT_SORT_DAYS'	=> $s_limit_days,
	'S_IN_SEARCH'			=> true,
));


When you have something like topics, posts or search results being displayed it's an array in a loop. There is template variable all over the place... Easiest way to track them down is search the files for the template variable using the search function on editor like Notepadd++ that allows you to search directories and sub directories.

Not quite what I was after. I was thinking of a list of GUI url's vs which template renders the result.

So, as an example:

Code: Select all

index.php - forumlist_body.html
viewforum.php? - viewforum_body.html
Etc,
etc.
But yes, I can run recursive searches on template variables. I was hoping to avoid that. :lol:

Thanks for the link, but the other one is more idiot-proof. ;)
