for the board index - BoardIndex.template.php

{
/* Each board in each category's boards has:
new (is it new?), id, name, description, moderators (see below), link_moderators (just a list.),
children (see below.), link_children (easier to use.), children_new (are they new?),
topics (# of), posts (# of), link, href, and last_post. (see below.) */
foreach ($category['boards'] as $board)
{
echo '
<tr class="windowbg2">

Is there a way to do this on the messageindex.php file too? I applied it in the same way but nothing happened.

For the child boards or the display of the topics? I was working on a find and replace tutorial for the topic listing but then realized you might have meant the child boards.

No, I meant the displaying of topics. You had it right.  :) I've been toying with the code for a while and just haven't been able to make it work.

What's the first thing you don't understand? Do you know how to modify files? How do I modify files?

fuddes, if you see this, would you still like help with this?

It will have it so that colors alternate with each row of boards shown.

Example:

---------------
Board Name (Blue)
---------------
Board Name (Green)
---------------
Board Name (Blue)
---------------
Board Name (Green)

Currently it alternates with column.

Looks like SMF 2.x has different code.  How can I add this to 2.x?

Note that it will be theme dependent - your theme may have a custom BoardIndex.template.php - please post it here so we can look at it.

It is just the default template.

For the default template in RC1.2 (and note it'll be different in RC2): - just to alternate the main board background

Code: [Select]
// Assuming the category hasn't been collapsed...
if (!$category['is_collapsed'])
{
$alternate = false;
echo '
<table cellspacing="1" class="bordercolor boardsframe">';

/* Each board in each category's boards has:
new (is it new?), id, name, description, moderators (see below), link_moderators (just a list.),
children (see below.), link_children (easier to use.), children_new (are they new?),
topics (# of), posts (# of), link, href, and last_post. (see below.) */
foreach ($category['boards'] as $board)
{
$alternate = !$alternate;
echo '
<tr>
<td', !empty($board['children']) ? ' rowspan="2"' : '', ' class="windowbg icon">
<a href="', ($board['is_redirect'] || $context['user']['is_guest'] ? $board['href'] : $scripturl . '?action=unread;board=' . $board['id'] . '.0;children'), '">';

// If the board or children is new, show an indicator.
if ($board['new'] || $board['children_new'])
echo '
<img src="', $settings['images_url'], '/on', $board['new'] ? '' : '2', '.gif" alt="', $txt['new_posts'], '" title="', $txt['new_posts'], '" border="0" />';
// Is it a redirection board?
elseif ($board['is_redirect'])
echo '
<img src="', $settings['images_url'], '/redirect.gif" alt="*" title="*" border="0" />';
// No new posts at all! The agony!!
else
echo '
<img src="', $settings['images_url'], '/off.gif" alt="', $txt['old_posts'], '" title="', $txt['old_posts'], '" />';

echo '
</a>
</td>
<td class="windowbg', $alternate ? '2' : '', ' info">

The code above worked... a little.  Had some columns that weren't included in the color changes.  It helped me understand what to change though.  Thanks.  Here is the updated version.

in BoardIndex.template.php

Code: [Select]
      // Assuming the category hasn't been collapsed...
      if (!$category['is_collapsed'])
      {
         $alternate = false;
         echo '

         children (see below.), link_children (easier to use.), children_new (are they new?),
         topics (# of), posts (# of), link, href, and last_post. (see below.) */
         foreach ($category['boards'] as $board)
         {
            $alternate = !$alternate;
            echo '

            if ($board['new'] || $board['children_new'])

echo '

<p>', $board['description'] , '</p>';

// Show the "Moderators: ". Each has name, href, link, and id. (but we're gonna use link_moderators.)

I just changed the code from the opening post - and I did say it was linked to the main board background, not to any of the other columns.

I'd duplicate the default theme, named "whatevername", but it doesn't contain any BoardIndex.template.php file to modify it. Any help with this?

Copy the file from Themes/default to your theme. Basically what happens is that SMF will reuse files from the default theme if they're not present in a custom one.
