Hello Telli,

I was wondering if it was possible to do the following....

We use the standard news module but what we want is after an article has recieved 100 reads or more... that an icon would show next to the article automaticly...?

Any help would be appreciated....

You could make a function and use it in the news index.


function article_icon($count, $max='200') {
   return ($count >= $max) ? '<img src="images/200reads.gif" alt="" />' : '';
}


Then where you want it just add:


echo article_icon($counter);


The second variable is for changing the count for instance you want it to show at 300.


echo article_icon($counter, 300);


The variable $counter is the database counter number from the stories table.

Are you entering it in the theme.php or the story_home.html?

Best bet would be to add it in the News/index.php

Ok because the story_home.html isnt parsed as php. Add this in the theme article function in the themes/YOURTHEME/theme.php.


$imgico = article_icon($counter);


Then in the story_home.html add the $imgico where you want it.

Ok I got it to work but I cant seem to get the placement ... I would like it to be next or underneath the topic image yet I dont have that crontrol it shows the icon above the title - any ideas how I can accomplish this telli?

I tried using the story_home.html file and switching this

echo article_icon($counter);

to this
$popuararticle = article_icon($counter);


Then placed $popuararticle inside the story_home.html and adding it to the global tag in module/News/index.php themeindex () but no go...
