question about FAQ 71

Documentation is as important as the rest of the code, so if something is unclear, missing or just plain wrong, please tell it.

question about FAQ 71

Postby ftruscot » Mon May 22, 2006 3:45 pm

This is the "How do I change the number of items displayed on my main page?" FAQ. It uses a form of the <%blog%> skinvar that is not in the documentation, and gives me a blank page.

It describes the <%blog%> skinvar as

Code: Select all

<%blog(1,default/index,20)%>
The "1" is the blogid, the "default/index" is the template used and the "20" is the number of items to display. Just change the "20" to the number of items you want displayed.


<%blog%> doesn't take a blogid parameter, does it? This is almost the <%otherblog%> skinvar, except blogid should be the blog shortname. I wanted to point someone to the FAQ, but it might confuse newbies.

Hrmm...this was one of the earlier FAQs I wrote so it's possible I may have messed up the syntax or confused blog with otherblog. In any case, I have amended the FAQ now:
