Creation Of Additional Challenges Pages

Hi all,

I would like to create two additional challenges pages, one for One Hour Challenges and the other for Plot Bunnies. I have been adding them manually and I'd like to be able to enter them into the same form as the default challenges page that comes with the script.  Could someone please advise what I need to do? 

I have copied the challenges.tpl and challenges_title.tpl and created ones called plotbunny.tpl and plotbunny_title.tpl in the main directory, then made a custom page and page link, but the page is just blank.  I assume there are other places in the script that I need to change to reflect the new pages, but I am unsure where.

Current challenges page (The default):  http://destinysgateway.com/browse.php?type=challenges (This is how I would like for the Plot Bunny's page to look)

The Plot Bunny's challenges page:  http://destinysgateway.com/viewpage.php?page=plotbunny

Thank you for your help!

Nobody knows how to do this?  😕  I'd really be appreciative if you could point me in the right direction. I have people on my site asking when I can get up the Plot Bunny page, but I just don't know enough about the script.

I don't think you can do what you want by creating a new viewpage.php page. I think you need a new browse.php page with a new type, such as plot bunnies. You could either add a field to the regular "issue a challenge" page so that people could specify if they're adding a regular challenge or a plot bunny, or you could create a new "issue a plot bunny challenge" page. Then, on the new browse.php page you created, you'd have to specify it showed only the plot bunny challenges. I don't think it would be a easy or quick thing to do if you don't know the script.

You could in theory create a duplicate module by changing its name to something else. But it needs to be changed within the module files in a bunch of places. That module is fairly large and complicated so I can't do it right now. Not impossible (as far as I know) but time consuming.
