NC for Hire

Just for fun, I tried something out on my test network today which may be of interest to some NCs out there.  Did you know that you could move your entire Leaderboards page to your home page?   Its pretty simple actually....think of it as many text and RSS modules within one home-page text box.    First you need to be using the new Design Studio.  You need to have a layout which only has 2 columns with the main column being the 700px wide column.  Also, you need to have an empty text box in the main column, which you will add the leaderboards too.


Go to your Leaderboards page and set it up like you would want it to look on your home-page you can always set it back when you're done).   Now right click and view source code.


Search for this (Ctrl+F):

<div class="xg_module  html_module module_text xg_reset" 

Copy everything between that line of code through the two trailing </div>s before this line of code:
<div class="xg_column xg_span-7 xg_last" id="column2"> 

Now head over to the textbox that you have empty on your home-page and edit it, switch to HTML view and paste ALLLLLLL of that code you got from your leaderboards page source code view. and press save.  You're Done!


Our Result on Home Page:

NOTE:  this is my test network for my design competition entry so there aren't a lot of entries into my example leaderboards.  Yours will have a lot more...and it looks cool!  Give it a whirl!

  • VERY cool hack as always, JFarrow.......i had more posted here, but I didn't want to hijack your tute with a gripe about leaderboards, so I moved what i posted to here, where, being a gripe fits in. Very good work though, you are truly very good at what you do!
  • WAY cooler than just having top x of y listings.
  • ok, maybe im crazy. I tried this, but as i look closer, it seems like you are just copying the exact HTML, not the logic of the leaderboards. So, if there is new data generated will it update automatically?

    to be 100% honest (which is why i did it for fun) i'm not sure entirely...since i am using it on a test network, i have no real data to see if it is updating. However, the style rules and the engine should be the same cross platform so I'd imagine it might update...i'll have to run a test and see...
    let me know if it works for you...
