Pligg Support


I'd like to make the category menu highlight the category selected just like Popular and New highlight when selected. I've been poking around the style sheet and I can't seem to find it. I'm using bootstrap.

Possible Answers

    On /bootstrap/categories.tpl find:

    < li{if $cat_array[thecat].principlecat neq 0} class="dropdown"{/if}>

    then replace with:

    < li class="{if $cat_array[thecat].principlecat neq 0}dropdown{/if}{if $request_category eq $cat_array[thecat].safename} selected{/if}">

    On /bootstrap/css/style.css add:

    #categories li.selected { background: red; }

    Use the conditional:

    {if $request_category eq $cat_array[thecat].safename} selected{/if}

    then in your CSS just make a .selected class that defines the colors.

Submitting a Question or Comment

By taking a minute to research previous posts you may receive an answer much faster than waiting for a response to a new question. Begin by searching the support section for an answer. Sometimes you may even want to extend your search to the entire domain.

If you are unable to find a relevant answer, submit a new question or comment here. Please provide a detailed description and, when necessary, debugging information such as your server environment (a link to a <?php phypinfo(); ?> .php page would be very helpful), your web browser, and any steps necessary to reproduce your issue.

Submitting an Answer

If you have an answer or useful response that you would like to add to a post, you can submit it as a comment which other users will then vote on. Answers are sorted by most popular to least, allowing the best information to climb to the top of the page.

Please read and vote for existing answers before submitting your own, as there may already be an acceptable answer provided. You can use the "Reply" link found within an answer to submit a response to it, in case you want to expand or comment on someone else's contribution.

Including Files or Code

Sometimes it is necessary for you to attach a file or include a snippet of code for others to reference in your response. In most cases, you can .zip up files and attach them to a question or answer using Pligg's file manager. At times though this may fail, and in these circumstances we recommend using a third party host. Below we are including a list of recommended websites where you can share easily share file uploads (or snippets of code) through the web.
