Unfortunately there isn't a user-friendly way of adding HTML blocks (not that I'm aware of anyway). I know you can put HTML in an internal_table tag and use this as a block, but these boxes look different from the side blocks (the same difference there is between the default side blocks and the ocPortal branding "internal table"). Is there a tag I can use to replicate the look of the side blocks and have just pure HTML in them?

The internal_table tag is deprecated in favour of the newer box tag. This tag takes a parameter 'type', which should have the value 'panel'. Also 'dimensions' should be '13.3em', as the default theme has a fixed width of that for the blocks.

i.e.

Code

[box="Title" dimensions="13.3em" type="panel"]contents[/box]

  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
