Hi

I'm using omega with delta and context for a content type 'projects' to display various block, views and pages. No problem so far :).

What I would like to achieve:

-content type: projects (comments enabled and through node reference an 'update' content type )

I have a detailed project page (title, video, teaser, images,...).

Just below the title I would like to show this subnavigation:
Home | updates(x) | comments(x)

home (back to project details)
updates (content type of updates posted by author)
comments (I disabled comments on details, but I want to show them on a tabbed page)

I created a delta and context where I show all details of the project, but how to show this small menu?
I have a view with comments per project (menu path: comments/* and this shows comments per project, but I can't get it to show up on the different tabs.

question:
how to implement a sort of 'menu block' for those 3 menuitems?

thx

Hi Kris

Here are the key questions ...

1) Do you have a list of the paths for the different pages you want this menu to show on?
2) Is it OK to edit any of these paths?

Hi Steve

For now I have the home link (back to the project details) and the comments link (which is a custom text <a href='/comments/[nid]'>comments</a>
I haven't made the last 'updates from project' link yet, but I presume that I also have the path.

what do you mean by editing these paths? I would say yes :)

thx
Kris

I guess my point is this ... without a list of the paths you want the 'menu block' to appear on, it's difficult to know whether comments/* is the right choice or not.

Once you know the paths, it's easy to place a block on those specific pages.

Hi Steve

I got it to work with Quicktabs, but not entirely the way I want
can you check out faninvest.qualitycloud.be/projects/miss-julie-august-strindberg

there are the 3 tabs (home, comments, updates) but when you click on one of them, the right info appears but also the content shows up below the comments or updates.

How can I get rid of this info and show only the comments or updates?

thx
Kris

Hi Kris

Quick tabs is entirely a block so it's not really aware of the content underneath it.

Could you perhaps put the content inside the first tan or remove the content entirely?
