Jon - Quick question about the public side of the xCMS system.
If you check out my site, you'll note the blocks on the right side of the screen. I want to move the Auth block (Your Account) up above the xCMS blocks and insert a couple of images (site SSL and credit cards accepted images) between that your blocks. What template do I need to play with to do this?

The xcms code is put into the menu by modifying skin1/customer/home.tpl. You can modify this file to move the positioning of the blocks.

OK - thanks... one other question. In looking at the menu_customer.tpl file, I see how you loop through the categories but I actually would like to split the blocks.

In other words, I want to take the "Info" block and move it to the other side of the screen just above the Help block. The issue is that I am trying to balance the screen a bit - notice that the bottom border of the articles block is cut off.

You can split them up by including them in both columns, but it takes some customization:

1) Make a copy of menu_customer.tpl and call it menu_customer_info.tpl

2) Open menu_customer.tpl and find:

Code:
{section name="cats" loop=$xcmsNavigationCategories}

After Add:

{* Do not display the info category *}
{* Change X to the numeric id of your info category *}
{if $xcmsNavigationCategories[cats].categoryid ne X}

Find:

Code:
{/section}


BEFORE add:

Code:
{/if}


3) Open menu_customer_info.tpl and find:

Code:
{section name="cats" loop=$xcmsNavigationCategories}


After Add:

{* Only show the info category *}
{* Change X to the numeric id of your info category *}
{if $xcmsNavigationCategories[cats].categoryid eq X}

Find:

Code:
{/section}


BEFORE add:

Code:
{/if}


4) In your home.tpl put this code where you want the info block to appear:

{* WCM - xCMS *}
{if $active_modules.WCM_xCMS}
{include file="modules/xcms/menu_customer_info.tpl"}
{/if}
{* / WCM - xCMS *}

OK - I tried your steps and all kinds of chaos broke out... lol

None of the blocks showed up, nor the top "banner" on our site.

Got errors as well.
Error: Smarty error: [in modules/xcms/menu_customer_info.tpl line 68]: syntax error: mismatched tag {/if}. expected {/section} (opened line 10). (Smarty_Compiler.class.php, line 233 in /home/vacsew/public_html/include/lib/smarty/Smarty.class.php on line 1093

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_ENDIF in /home/vacsew/public_html/var/templates_c/%%F2^F28^F28A59C7%%menu_customer_info.tpl.php on line 141

How do I drop the bottom bar (users online, etc) so the bottom of the Help menu isn't getting cut off?

Strange as theoretically the bottom bar should space itself correctly automatically.

You can try putting a <br /> after the help box.

I've installed XCMS along with CDSEO Pro - everything seems to be working fine, except my item entry image does not show up on the news entry (all I've tried so far). The product images under related items does show up. Here is a link http://www.ihobbycentral.com/xcms_entry.php?xcmsentryid=1 Thanks,
