    I was thinking that a nice description of my site would look good at the top of the sidebar so i decided to make a simple mod to add an extra block to it that could be controled via the admincp where i could add a description of my site and edit it whenever :) it can be added pretty much anywhere in the sidebar, even inside other blocks for an example of how it could be used take a look at My Site

    1- install the xml file included in the archive via the admincp
    2- in the admincp navigate to, apearence >> templates >> forum_list


        <xen:edithint template="sidebar.css" />
    below that add

        <xen:include template="Sidebar_Block" />
    then edit the block via admincp - options - addon block

    it supports html and can be used as a link block, a description or as something else :)

    Multiple blocks and sort order would be key. Also not having to edit a template.

    Where do I locate this to use HTML? I can't seem to find the place or the correct code.

    This is just what I wanted, and works a treat, I even worked out how to alter the position of the add on block

    Anyway of telling us how you got your sidebar with the different blocks? It looks awesome and I would love to try something with my sport site with it :) For some reason I can create the side block but coming up with a template for it (or getting it to call the template) seem's to have gone over my head :D

    If you follow the instruction in the OP that will add a block which you can edit, to alter it's position in the sidebar just move it up or down in the template edit.
