    Default Flash Tutorial Integration

    I've just bought some tutorials from DemoWolf (great, quick service) and want them to be used from within WHMCS.
    I was wondering if someone could point me in the right direction to integrate them into WHMCS.
    I'm using the standard install of WHMCS.

    Thanks

    In whmcs there is a tutorial.tpl you can use that.

    I noticed someone mention that when I did a search but not much was said about it.
    I tried the url to it in my installation but came up with a permission error.
    How do I make it visible in my installation??

    Daniel, thanks for that.
    Is there somewhere in the WHMCS Admin area I can add them like KB articles and downloads or do I have to add them manually to the file??

    You need to add them manually i'm afraid - though the ability to add them like KB articles is a good idea!

    You'll need to manually edit the tpl file.

    You could add a KB article with a little text and insert the .swf file as a streaming media file into each relevant article.

    Sorry for the late reply, didn't get the emails, thanks to those who have posted.

    I've got the tutorials.tpl file and it has the following code:

    <p>{$LANG.flashtutorialsheadertext}</p>

    <ul>
    {foreach from=$tutorials item=tutorial}
    <li><a href="#" onclick="window.open('modules/tutorials/{$tutorial.filename}','','width=900,height=500');r eturn false">{$tutorial.name}</li>
    {/foreach}
    </ul>

    Where should I place my text and links to the tutorials.
    Could someone possibly post some code to get me started??

    Thanks

    I just got rid of all that and coded it manually in good ol' HTML.

    Hi,

    I had edit the tutorials.tpl to put in all the tutorials.

    One the linking part, I wish to replace the server status icon/menu by Flash tutorials. i manage to do that in homepage.tpl & header.tpl.

    Can any one can tell me which part I should edit in order to replace the server status icon/menu in index.php? which tpl i should edit because I can't find the tpl file that can edit index.php page.

    Kindly assist.

    Thumbs up Re tutorials options

    for those that are looking for an alternative, Ive got some tutorials from another supplier (not demowolf), along with their democentre.

    I've then placed that demo centre inside an Iframe (don't need SEO for flash tuorials) on my tutorials page.

    Below is a screen shot to show how it looks.
    happy to pass on the code (but you have to buy your own tutorials )

    We bought tutorials from Demowolf and made our own custom page for them.

    See http://www.hightekhosting.com.au/mya.../tutorials.php

    We also added links on the client area page: http://www.hightekhosting.com.au/myaccount

    And the actual tutorials themselves just load in our site pages.

    Very easy to do and no real buggerising around.

    I just wanted to thank this thread for some inspiration. We moved to WHMCS about 3 months ago and are currently about 1 week from launching a total site redesign.

    We have 329 flash tutorials we've developed in house and have been using a Joomla site to display them. We wanted to move them into WHMCS to have all billing/support in 1 location. Using tutorials.php I've setup mootools accordion and smoothbox to really streamline their display. It turned out pretty well.

    I'll be posting in the showcase forum once we have the design launched, but thanks for the inspiration
