SobiPro - First Check Section ID - then check type - then set display.

SobiPro - First Check Section ID - then check type - then set display.

I have a sobi-pro site with 2 sections.

The first has a section id of 54
The second has a section id of 6778

I want to have 2 featured entries modules - 1 for each section.

I want each module to display in the section and category pages but not the entry pages.

I understand how to test for the view type but I am stuck on getting the section ID first.

Thanks

Re: SobiPro - First Check Section ID - then check type - then set display.

Hi,

It took a while but I have an answer for you.

Try the following code:

Code:

if (class_exists('SPFactory')) {

  $section = SPFactory::currentSection();
  if ($section) {
    try {
      $ob = SPFactory::object( SPRequest::sid() );
      $type = $ob->oType;
      /* now test for different types. You can test for "entry",
         "section" or "category". */
      if ($type == 'section' or $type == 'category') {
        $section_id = $section->get("id");
        if ($section_id == 54) return XXX;
        if ($section_id == 6778) return YYY;
        // replace XXX and YYY with the module ids to use for those 2 sections.
      }
    } catch ( SPException $x ) {}
  }
}
