Show article on one page

Show article on one page

Hi,

I am using an event booking system (component) on a site I am currently developing I need to insert an article before the event listings but I don't want the article to show on any of the other events pages.

If I use 'insert article' and add to page the article will show on all pages like event detail page, registration page etc.

Could you please assist me with a meta mod recipe for this?

Thank you
Regards
Lene

Re: Show article on one page

Hi,

Can anybody please assist with this.  I have tried several versions of recipes but cannot get it working.  I need an article to show on main component page but no other pages within that component.

Thank you

Re: Show article on one page

Hi Lene,

sorry it's taken a few days to get back to you - I've been on a work trip for the last week and haven't had enough net access to be able to work on forum posts.

Anyway, about your particular issue:

Can you please do the following:

1 - assign a new MetaMod to ALL pages, and in that MetaMod, enable the "advanced debug" mode. This will print out some information that can be used to identify particular pages.

2 - view the front page of your component, and take a copy of the output from the MetaMod.

3 - view a selection of other pages from the component, and take a copy of the MetaMod output from each of them. e.g. detail page, registration page, etc.

4 - paste all the outputs from the various pages into a reply in this forum, indicating which one is the "front page".

From all of those I should be able to fashion some PHP which will *include* the main page, but *exclude* all the others.

Best regards,
Stephen
