  • Adding a template -- help please

    Hello. Sorry if this isn't an appropriate question for this forum.

    I have figured out how to add a new template and I have figured out how to call that template from another template. But I can't figure out how would I can call that template as a page all by itself?

    For example, if I create a new template called "memberinfo1" and I want to display it, what URL would I use to do that?

    [If the answer is that "this requires hacking go to" (Unfortunately, the answer to most of my questiosn), let me then ask about a way that I might be able to do it without hacking:

    What I am trying to do is have one URL (ie member.php?u=10) that calls one type of member info template and another (perhaps: member.php?u1=10) that calls another memberinfo template.

    If I created two new templates called memberinfo1 and meberinfo2. I could then place a conditional statement in the memberinfo template, which calls up either template based on the URL. The problem is, I don't know how to write a conditional statement based on what the URL is. Can someone help me with that.

    Much thanks

    Hi there,

    You have to make a custom php file and eval the template, so that does require custom code and that does require .. sorry.
