To add a box on the right side, look here: /common_files/customer/right_bar.tpl

For the left it would be left_bar.tpl. Just create a new .tpl file and add the {include} code talked about above where ever you want.

Hi there,
I am trying to piggy back on this post but am using 4.4.1.

I opened up and used my right_bar.tpl (inside skin/common_files) rather than the home.tpl. The code didn't match with the new new version so the righ_bar.tpl seemed to make the most sense (I'm a newb).

Anyway, in right_bar.tpl I added:

Quote:
{include file="customer/support.tpl"}

Then I created a file called support.tpl and uploaded it to the skin/common_templates/customer/. In it I added:

Quote:
{capture name=menu}
<!-- http://www.LiveZilla.net Chat Button Link Code --><a href="javascript:void(window.open('http://www.unibindphotobooks.com/shop/support/chat.php','','width=590,height=580,left=0,top=0,re sizable=yes,menubar=no,location=no,status=yes,scro llbars=yes'))"><img src="http://www.unibindphotobooks.com/shop/support/image.php?id=03" width="141" height="81" border="0" alt="Live Site and Product Support"></a><noscript><div><a href="http://www.unibindphotobooks.com/shop/support/chat.php" target="_blank">Start Live Help Chat</a></div></noscript><!-- http://www.LiveZilla.net Chat Button Link Code --><!-- http://www.LiveZilla.net Tracking Code --><div id="livezilla_tracking" style="display:none"></div><script type="text/javascript">
<!-- DON'T PLACE IN HEAD ELEMENT -->
var script = document.createElement("script");script.type="text /javascript";var src = "http://www.unibindphotobooks.com/shop/support/server.php?request=track&output=jcrpt&nse="+Math.r andom();setTimeout("script.src=src;document.getEle mentById('livezilla_tracking').appendChild(script) ",1);</script><!-- http://www.LiveZilla.net Tracking Code -->
{/capture}
{include file="customer/menu_dialog.tpl" title="Links" content=$smarty.capture.menu}

Thought it would work but nothin happened. Any ideas?

I grayed out what I was trying to put as content in the box (it's a live help, chat link).

Thank you!


PS. Using "Smart Template" on 4.4.1, no mods.

Code:
{include file="modules/links.tpl"}

Now save home.tpl.

Now, in your skin1/modules folder, create a new file called links.tpl and place the following code inside:

Code:
{capture name=menu} <ul> <li>LINK 1</li> <li>LINK 2</li> <li>LINK 3</li> ... </ul> {/capture} {include file="customer/menu_dialog.tpl" title="Links" content=$smarty.capture.menu}

Change the links to whatever you would like and save.

My Implementation for 4.4.2

in /skin1/customer/left_bar.tpl below

added
{include file="customer/links.tpl"}
to the section where I wanted it displayed. Keep in mind that the div id is set from content.tpl.

saved and uploaded

in skin1/customer folder create a file called links.tpl and put this in it.

{capture name=menu}
<ul>

<li>LINK 1</li>
<li>LINK 2</li>
<li>LINK 3</li>
...

</ul>
{/capture}
{include file="customer/menu_dialog.tpl" title="Links" content=$smarty.capture.menu}

worked well, thanks.
