I'm using the main_rss block in panel_right for an rss feed, but need to customise the output for the elements that are displayed and the css properties, however this styling should not be applied to all the feeds that are using main_rss such as the default news feeds.

Is it possible to copy a block such as main_rss to main_rss_custom1 and then apply css styling specific to that block?

You'd be better off using some Tempcode. A 'FEED_URL' parameter is passed to both BLOCK_MAIN_RSS and BLOCK_MAIN_RSS_SUMMARY, so you can do this:

Code

{+START,IF,{$EQ,{FEED_URL},http://example.com/foo.rss}}
... new code
{+END}
{+START,IF,{$NEQ,{FEED_URL},http://example.com/foo.rss}}
... old code
{+END}

  • 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.

Thanks for that. Not what I was hoping, but not to worry. I'm planning to have different feeds showing in some sections, so I'll have to investigate further to determine exactly how I can parse the rss feed and style the block accordingly, however I'll do this on a localhost installation when I can get it properly installed.
