Here you can create, edit, delete Multiheadlines Center Block and Scrool/Marquee Multiheadlines blocks
Multiheadlines Center Block
From the Create link you can make a new Multiheadlines center block. Following the next steps will end up deleting the old Multiheadlines center block if is already defined one and making a new one. So if you have some interesting feed urls in the old block, maybe you should copy/paste somewhere[into a text editor] to use them later.
Multiheadlines block is a center block. The content of it is, mainly, a table. Each cell is filled with feeds coming from different sites.
You may consider every row of this table a category[e.g. Sport, Financial, Science, etc].
The first step of creating this kind of block is choosing how many rows ond columns do you want it to have in it and the refresh time for this block.
This block works pretty much as the regular headlines blocks from php-nuke, the entired content of it is cached locally in a database table. After passing a certain period of time [refresh time] the content it is refreshed and so on. Knowing this you shouldn't select many rows and columns cause when the refreshing time comes the system will make reading requests to all of sites [feeds urls] from where the feeds are coming from. If you have saying 3 columns and 2 lines this means 3x2 = 6 sites. These reading requests to remote sites can last long, depending to the connection of your site to the remote site. Also don't choose short refresh time for this block for the same reason.
On the second step of creating this block you must:
Enter here the name of the block - This will be also the name of the block[in PHP-Nuke Block administration too].
Then you must enter the necessary infos in order to be able to create the Multiheadlines Center Block meaning :
Feed urls - the feed url is the url were the feeds will came from
Site title - the title of site is the head of each column[custom title] which will be showed in the table/block.
Site url - the url of site is the url were you'll be redirected if you'll click on custom title of each column [with "http://" before, this is important!!!]
After you entered all the necessary infos hiting the Save button will save the new configuration for Multiheadlines center block [deleting the old one if there is one].
The only thing you have left to do[required] is to go to your home page in order refresh the content of this block. [You don't have to create this block again from Blocks administration section].
From the Edit link you can edit the configuration of Multiheadlines center block if there is one meaning you can change the:
Refresh time [seconds]

Before clicking the Create button there isn't yet associated a physical file with this block. In order to actually create this file [in /blocks folder on your php-nuke site] the system must have the rights to write into this folder. So before creating these kind of block[s], CHMOD to 775 or 777 to folder /blocks. After creating the blocks you should change back to previous acces rights of this folder. The newly created files [of these blocks have names such as: block-Multiheadlines-1.php, block-Multiheadlines-2.php, ...on /blocks folder].
From the Preview link you can preview the content of Multiheadlines scroll or marquee blocks.
