Vincent! :p

I am trying to add the code you gave me (below) into an addon so I don't have to manually edit the templates.

Code:
<xen:if is="{$post.isFirst} AND !{$isQuickReply}">
<center>
<a href="conversations/add?to={$user.username}" title="Send a PM">Send a PM</a>
</center>
</xen:if>
However, when called via a hook, none of the {} variables are working. What am I doing wrong?

This is normal.

There are quite a few add-ons who use that, for example [LN] Blog :)

Take a look at that.

"It's better to learn Dan how to fish then catching him fish", so go learn how to do it :D

If you really can't do it, feel free to contact me again :)

Update: I got the username worked out but this

Code:
<xen:if is="{$post.isFirst} AND !{$isQuickReply}">
Still doesn't work. Off to play some more.

What you can do best is tell the hook to read the code from a new template.

I have no idea how to do it the other way myself :D

I would not use center tag's ever on my site. The problems you can get from them are just not worth it imo

use css to center it.

well, right now I cannot get

Code:
{$post.isFirst}
to pass to the hook, which is pretty important to the functionality we are trying to achieve. I thought I read that the $post variable will be exposed in 1.03. So I am not sure this is even possible at the moment. Once I get that variable passed, the only thing left to do is create a css template for the addon and we are golden.

I think once I figure out what xenforo is doing, I will like it. Right now, I think vBulletin is much easier to code for.

Sometimes I think the same :/

this might help I see your post above you have "AND" try "&&"

example

Code:
<xen:if is="!{$visitor.user_id} && !{$post.isFirst}">

@Vincent had a brilliant idea to add a "Send a Message" link to the OP in the Swap Shop section only to make it easier to make an offer. See screenshot. However, we only want this message to show on the OP. So all we are doing is checking if it is the first post, checking to make sure we are in the right forum (using array admin options to check node id) and displaying the link below the avatar.

The problem: I have a template with the following contents (well it has since changed but doesn't matter)

Code:
<xen:if is="{$post.isFirst} AND !{$isQuickReply}">
<center>
<a href="conversations/add?to={$user.username}" title="Send a PM">Send a PM</a>
</center>
</xen:if>
Works great by editing the correct template and using:

Code:
<xen:include template="whatever" />
But the minute I call it with a templateHook listener, $post.isFirst dies.

Clear as mud? :p

Thought the idea of a forum is to post. Looking at this site the more content viewable to the public is better...

And we already got that, but Dan is trying to do it with a hook and he doesn't know how :(

Therefor I'll create the mod to learn :D

Yes, it does work when editing the template, but when calling that code with a templateHook, it does not.
