How to create blocks?

    Well, right now, I'm half-way finished with my vb4 installation at www.mw2boards.com and I'm looking to finish my xenforo installation at www.mw2forums.com

    When I was looking around in the ACP, I've wondered how to create blocks. I'm looking at all the options and still remained confused and don't want to be breaking things. I said I'd come back to it at some point, so I would like to know how to create one.

    Because soon, I'm going to put social networks in a box, and an ad for monetizing. So, how do I go about creating blocks AND!

    Making both visible on thread display...

    Edit this template:

    Admin CP -> Appearance -> Templates -> thread_view

    Add this code to the bottom of the template:

    Code:
    <xen:sidebar>
    	<div class="section">
    		<div class="secondaryContent">
    			YOUR CONTENT HERE
    		</div>
    	</div>
    </xen:sidebar>
    
    That will create a sidebar on thread pages.
     
    Shelley and Peggy like this.

    Got that part down, so how do I create a block for mainpage? Ya know, the standard one?

    Just tell me where to look in the ACP, and I'll be on my way. I'll put an ad first thing I add a standard block.

    Jake perhaps you could post both of these in Template Modifications, if you haven't done so already?
