    Hi there,

    I am planning for my community a "blog-system" with XenZine Articles. For this "blog" section I'd like to change the Forum Name to:

    "Forum Name - Blogs"

    So I thought the best way would be a conditional which look s at the URL. If the URL is

    than use "Forum Name - Blogs" as Forum Name (Titel)

    else use "Forum Name " as Forum Name (Titel)

    Is there any conditional which can be used for this?

    Thanks Benny

    Look for the template that contains the title you want to change and find the:

    <xen:title> or <xen:h1> tags.

    Change those to whatever you like.

    No conditionals necessary.

    Maybe I didn't describe my problem right. I want to get this:

    <xen:h1> tag should be by default "My Forum"

    when going to this URL


    the <xen:h1> tag should be switched to

    "My Forum Blogs"

    So edit the template that loads the articles page with the desired <xen:title> and <xen:h1> values.

    Perfect works fine ... but now I have another question:

    Is there also a possibility to change the logo? I have a text Logo and wan't it also to show "Forum Name - Blog"?

    Thanks Benny

    It will depend on your style...

    Somewhere on one of your templates you will have the logo text defined.

    You could then use a conditional, such as:

    <xen:if is="{$contentTemplate} == 'BLOG_TEMPLATE_NAME'">
        Forum Name - Blog
    <xen:else />
        Current Text Logo
    Just change BLOG_TEMPLATE_NAME with whatever the name of the template is that you edited before :)
