Hi guys,
i have a newbie problem with smarty.

I have created some page with a static header.tpl, a static footer.tpl and a dynamic content.

Now, in the header i want to insert a login block, so (in my erroneous thinking...) i create a login.php that ends with $tpl->display('login.tpl')

no way to make it run!

What techniques I have to use? thanks a lot

1. You should create a login.php to show your login.tpl. If you done,show us your codes.

2. In your main template. use {include_php file="xxx.php"} to include your login block. when u visit your main page,you will see login block.

That's a good idea, using include_php, however that smarty function is pretty much deprecated. (http://smarty.php.net/manual/en/language.function.include.php.php).


Instead, writing a custom function is suggested:

We use our 'widget' plugins for this. These are based on a simple widget abstract class which defines two methods: display() and formHandler(). The display() is called from the plug-in when a widget is included in a template, e.g.

{widget name=widgetUserLogin template=login_form.html}

Each widget is a subclass of the widget class and there's a factory instantiate them from the plug-in and in the page_start scripts.

The login form template is output by the display() method, and display either a login form or the user's name, depending on whether they're logged in or not.

The formHandler() method simply checks form parameters passed and logs the user in or out as appropriate. Because it uses a singleton instance of the user object, it's easy for the form to check for the previous log-in error and display it.

Every page on our site will call an initialisation script 'page_start.php' which does all the config setups needed in every page. The page_start.php script also checks whether any widgetFormHandler parameters were passed in the request, and if there were, it uses the widgetFactory to create a widget instance, then calls it's form-handler as appropriate.

We don't always write formHandlers for widgets, but for things like log-in blocks, shopping carts, polls, etc., they're a very effective solution, because they can be called from any page on a site without additional coding. Just drop them in to the template and define which template they use.

HTH,

Mark
