Which template is the one for the "What's New" page?

#1
Trying to add the sidebar to every page I can think of on the site. The "What's New" page is the only one that has me stumped as far as not being able to find the template...!

Does no-one read FAQs :(

How can I find out which template to edit?
Using your browser, view the page source and look for a line of code near the top of the page which begins
<div id="content" class="; the class is the name of the template. So for the main forum page, the line of code is:
<div id="content" class="forum_list">, which makes the template forum_list.

Sorry Brogan, I didn't think to search for that. I tried searching for "What's new template", but it doesn't work in this forum since "What's" is too common and "new" is too short. :rolleyes: I do hate how useless the search functionality is...

Anyway, I tried searching the site with google, and read through all of the results, couldn't find anything related to what I was looking for. I just didn't think about searching for how to figure out which template to edit as a whole. After searching for 45 minutes, it gets to a point where you just ask instead of keep drudging through the research.

That's actually a limitation of MySQL ;)

Why can't I search for words with 3 characters or less?
This is a limitation of the MySQL Full Text search function. Find more information on the MySQL site.

Why can't I search for certain words?
The MySQL search function has what are called stopwords, which are typically common words, and are excluded from searches. Find more information on the MySQL site.

You should change it on this forum so people can search properly. ;) At least make the character limit 3 chars in your MySQL install! I can't change mine because it's not a VPS, but maybe soon I'll be able to upgrade...
