Thanks. I have it saving the correct information to the database now! Now, I just have to figure out this front page.

I am trying to add a sidebar to the front page that output data from the database.

This is how I envision it working.

Category 1
---Stuff from First Item in Category 1
---Stuff Form Second Item in Category 1
Category 2
---Stuff from First Item in Category 2
---Stuff Form Second Item in Category 2

This is my current index.htm.

<aside id="sidebar" class="login-sidebar">
    {tmpl_loop name='sidebar_records'}

<div id="login-form">
    <div class="box-inner">
        <img title="<tmpl_var name="app_title">" id="logo" alt="<tmpl_var name="app_title">" src="<tmpl_var name='app_logo'>">
                    <td class="title">
                        <label for="username">{tmpl_var name='username_txt'}</label>
                    <td class="input">
                        <input name="username" id="username" value="" size="30" maxlength="255" type="text" class="textInput"  onkeypress="if (event.keyCode && event.keyCode == 13) {submitLoginForm('pageForm'); return false;};" />
                    <td class="title">
                        <label for="passwort">{tmpl_var name='password_txt'}</label>
                    <td class="input">
                        <input name="passwort" id="passwort" value="" size="30" maxlength="255" type="password" class="textInput"  onkeypress="if (event.keyCode && event.keyCode == 13) {submitLoginForm('pageForm'); return false;};" />
        <input type="hidden" name="s_mod" value="login" />
        <input type="hidden" name="s_pg" value="index" />
        <p id="loginbutton">
            <button type="button" class="button" value="{tmpl_var name="add_new_record_txt"}" onclick="submitLoginForm('pageForm');"><span>{tmpl_var name='login_button_txt'}</span></button>
        <p class="powered">Powered by <a href="<tmpl_var name="app_link">" target="_blank"><tmpl_var name="app_title"></a></p>
    <div class="box-bottom">
        <div id="message">
            <tmpl_if name="msg">
                <div id="OKMsg"><p><tmpl_var name="msg"></p></div>
            <tmpl_if name="error">
                <div id="errorMsg">
                    <div class="warning"><tmpl_var name="error"></div>
                    <br /><a href="#" onclick="loadContent('login/password_reset.php');">{tmpl_var name='pw_lost_txt'}</a>
I have added this information to the login module.

$sidebar_records = array();
		$sidebar_query = $app->db->queryAllRecords("SELECT category,title,tpl_ispc_clean_app.desc,image_url,link,target FROM tpl_ispc_clean_app order by sorting ");
		if(is_array($sidebar_query)) {
			foreach($sidebar_query as $side_qry) {
				$sidebar_records[$side_qry['category']] = $side_qry['category'];
				$sidebar_records[$side_qry['title']] = $side_qry['title'];
				$sidebar_records[$side_qry['desc']] = $side_qry['desc'];
				$sidebar_records[$side_qry['image_url']] = $side_qry['image_url'];
				$sidebar_records[$side_qry['link']] = $side_qry['link'];
				$sidebar_records[$side_qry['target']] = $side_qry['target'];

$app->tpl->setVar('sidebar', print_r($sidebar_records));
$app->tpl->setLoop('sidebar_records', $sidebar_records);
I guess that I don't understand loops in the templates because nothing is happening. It is throwing out the error Invalid Loop Structure. Any help would be great!
