Link Splitting
Would like to split each link up to a little table - where each has an alternate pastel coloured background. Any ideas on how this would be achieved? TIA.

You mean on a category page?

Check the help docs for the Template tags ... odd / even are used for this.

Yes - on a category page. Help Docs? Never read them. Never thought to. Hey - how usual is that!!!
My login with GT does not work anymore - have requested asist on that and as soon as I can will download these. Thanks Pugdog.

Check this post http://www.gossamer-threads.com/perl/gforum/gforum.cgi?post=218345



Also, do a search on loop links - http://www.gossamer-threads.com/perl/gforum/gforum.cgi?do=search_results&search_forum=all&search_type=AND&search_string=loop+links

I did get the latest manual from GT - very well written and helped me with a lot of things. Only thing I see missing is a complete list of tags documented which would be nice. Have to hunt through the docs to find things and not all are listed. Otherwise very well done.

Cannot find the odd/even that you spoke of, maybe I missed it but not for the want of trying. Any further help appreciated.

Try replacing

Code:


<%if links%>
<%links%>
<%endif%>



with

Code:

<%if links%>
<%loop links_loop%>

<table width="100%" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">
<tr>
<td bgcolor="<%if even%>#CCCCCC<%else%>#999999<%endif%>">

<%include link.html%>

</td>
</tr>
</table>

<%endloop%>
<%endif%>


Just change td colors to your own ...

Hope that helps
