Hello,

I am using this mod http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=992 and it is exactly what I need but I need a small tweak that I was wondering if it was possible and if someone could offer some assistance with. 

What I am looking for is when a download is created it will create a post in a certain board I choose with the topic being the downloads title, but the first post contents will be that of the downloads description.


Any way this can be done?

-Thanks!

That should mostly be built already inside that mod. Under edit category you have the option to choose which board to post to.

Texan78:
Thank you for the quick response. My apologizes, I think I described it wrong. You are correct, you can set it to post to certain board. As it is now unless there is something I am missing it only posts a link in that post to the downloads section. If possible it would be really really nice for it to also post the description of the download in addition of the link to the download below it. How would this be possible?

-Thanks!

Modify the Downloads.php in the Sources folder look at the AddDownload2 function and find the createpost function and add have it include the description of the download into  message body of that function call

Whewww, I'm not a coder so that may be a tad over my expertise, but I can find my way around ok so I will give it a shot since I have some direction now. Please stand by and I will update with the progress if I was able to get it..LoL

-Thanks!
