Default Changing the order of the 'blocks' in the left column

How would I go about changing the order of the items in the left hand column?

I would like to have the latest posts (blog module) below the news.

Maybe later, other changes.

Default Re: Changing the order of the 'blocks' in the left column

I remembered about the weighting system so I can directly edit the files like this:


/**
* Side-bar box for top news
*
* @ListChild (list="sidebar.single", weight="1000")
* @ListChild (list="sidebar.first", weight="1000")

and...

/**
* Recent posts widget (For menu, class heir)
*
* @ListChild (list="sidebar.single", zone="customer", weight="2000")
* @ListChild (list="sidebar.first", zone="customer", weight="2000")


but there is some way of 'deregistering' ListChild settings and reregistering them so changes aren't lost when a module is updated. I can't find this information.

You have many options for this. Here is a fairly comprehensive list: http://xcartguru.com/knowledge-base/x-cart-5-kb/x-cart-5-moving-classes-and-templates-in-lists/

Default Re: Changing the order of the 'blocks' in the left column

Thanks. I've added the below to the main.php file in my theme and it works nicely...

Code:
protected static function moveClassesInLists() { return array( 'XLite\Module\Client\ClientTwitterFeed\View\ClientTwitterFeed' => array( array('sidebar.single', 'customer'), array('sidebar.single', 500, 'customer'), ), 'XLite\Module\XC\News\View\TopNewsSideBar' => array( array('sidebar.single', 'customer'), array('sidebar.single', 1000, 'customer'), ), 'XLite\Module\QSL\WordPress\View\Plugins\RecentPosts\MenuSection' => array( array('sidebar.single', 'customer'), array('sidebar.single', 2000, 'customer'), ), ); }
