Yay, that worked! I just changed the '100' to '130' because some of the list items were long, and were cut off. :3

You rock my world!! <3

D: I saw the columns were messy in Firefox as soon as I had the chance to look at it. :( I assumed, mistakenly, that the "100" was in pixels, ha. Changed the 130 back to 100 to make the columns neat in FF again! IE can go eat poop. :P

Hello,

I have an smf v.1.1.12 and I have installed this mod but it doesn't work as it should. My child board remail as they were. I'm using the default theme of smf.

Is there a configuration page?

Thanx.

Doesn't work on my 1.1.12 board either. The boardindex got messed up and the messageindex didn't change at all.
No errors on installation...

Sorry, not meaning to be impatient, but really can't get it working. First of all the boardindex got messed up. Maybe I needed to make a screenshot, but instead I removed the code for BoardIndex.php and BoardIndex.template.php as I'm only interested in the part which modifies the MessageIndex. That shouldn't cause any problems for the MessageIndex, does it?

The MessageIndex doesn't change at all. I temporarily removed the IF-clauses, just to see if it would make any difference, but it didn't.

MOD v1.3

Link to one of my boards :

We are planning to increase the number of children in this board, that's why  ;)

Firstly, you linked to a board, which means MessageIndex.template.php is being used not BoardIndex.template.php.

Correct. I only want the MessageIndex to be altered, not the BoardIndex. So the link I provided should be the correct one?

Secondly, that board is behaving exactly as I would expect it to, seeing that it doesn't relay the normal child boards but child boards only, i.e. the child boards of a parent are altered on the front index, and also the child boards of child boards (i.e. when presented as child boards) in the message index. So I would expect nothing to occur in the message index unless some of THOSE had children - which they don't.

I don't really understand what you're telling here. If I look at this screenshot :



Isn't that the MessageIndex? If so, I can't get my MessageIndex(es) altered like this, whatever setting I try.

Thirdly, it doesn't appear to be turned on from the Features and Options panel, so it's not been told to use anything other than the default. You know, the setting I mentioned in the mod description...

Whether I set it to two, three or four columns, nothing happens  :(

Yes, that's the message index. But as demonstrated it will only do anything if the boards shown in the message index have child boards themselves. NONE of your boards in the presented link do so, so it does nothing.

Sorry Arantor, sorry... I must have misunderstood the purpose of this modification.

In the screenshot, New Boards is already a child? So we have, lets say :

Parent -> New Board -> Child 1
Parent -> New Board -> etc

If so, your mod unfortunately is not usefull for me :(

Unless you can provide me modified code which allows me to the same with 'first level' child boards?

HunterP


I've created something similar myself. This exactly fits my needs.

And, in case you're wondering, an odd number of children :

Also not working with RC4.. :'(
Works properly in RC5. To get this mod to work in SMF 2.0 RC4/RC5 do the following edits in the "package-info.xml" file.

Find :
<install for="2.0 RC2, 2.0 RC3">

Replace With :
<install for="2.0 RC2, 2.0 RC3, 2.0 RC4, 2.0 RC5">



Find :
<uninstall for="2.0 RC2, 2.0 RC3">

Replace With :
<uninstall for="2.0 RC2, 2.0 RC3, 2.0 RC4, 2.0 RC5">

Why not

<install for="2.0 RC2 - 2.0 RC5">

??

Because they're not treated as numbers. They're discrete blocks.

Ok, thanks!  ;)

Doesn't seem to work in RC5. If you select 2 columns it displays underneath like this instead of beside each other.

Child 1
Child 2
Child 3

Child 4
Child 5

Using IE7. Haven't tried another browser

Thanks yes I figured it was a browser thing cause I tried Safari 5.0.3 and it looks fine. Very nice mod. I'll give it a try. Thanks again

EDIT: That worked. **thumbsup**

That also got rid of the Child Boards wording which I wanted gone or changed :) This should be incorporated into SMF IMO.

Nice mod, works great, thanks so much!
