Hi Bigguy! I made a brand new SMF 1.1.7 forum last week. I'd love to use your mod and wasn't sure which package to use, so since "cbi 1.5" is closest to what I have, I tried to install that but got this error below. Please let me know if I should try to install the cbi 1.1 or 1.1a, or just wait for an upgrade.

Also, I can see you've worked on this a lot and been very helpful to others. It must be tiring at times. Thank you for your time and effort on this even it if doesn't work out for my version.


QuoteError in Package Installation
At least one error was encountered during a test installation of this package. It is strongly recommended that you do not continue with installation unless you know what you are doing, and have made a backup very recently. This error may be caused by a conflict between the package you're trying to install and another package you have already installed, an error in the package, a package which requires another package that you don't have installed yet, or a package designed for another version of SMF.

Bigguy

Try cbi 1a it should work for you. I have to do some serious updates on this mod and that will be coming soon. :)

Just an fyi,  First thanks the mod works great as best I can tell so for.  I am using 1.1.8 and the manual install instructions state "forum/Themes/default/icons/board_id/on.gif"   however the mod code as written is calling for .png files.  I did not catch this as I read the instructions..go figure huh?... anyway that made for a bit more work converting files to .png after having spent several hours making icons that were gif's.  Just thought that you should know and perhaps update the instructions before someone else runs into the same issue, or perhaps have the mod work with png/gif/jpg  etc etc

Thanks

what version of SMF are you running?   If you are using 1.1.x, you will have to manually apply mods into any custom themes.

I have installed the cbi 1.0 on SMF 1.15 automatically on default, also have copied the modified board.index and message.index from default to my theme folder, and have certified that the code is there. Also, I have upload the .gif images to theme/icons/board_id/ folder and it doesn't work. Tried different ids (1, 2, 3, etc...) and it only outputs the default .gif.

I'm a bit frustrated because everything seems to be alright.

Figured it out:

I was putting the .gifs on theme/images/icons/board_id...

The mod downloaded great now all I require help with is the rest of it.

What do we do now? Is it possible for a step by step instruction please.


Bigguy

Upload to the package manager and install. Then follow the directions in the readme. In the instructions where it says "board_icon" That means the number of the board you want to image to show for.

Brilliant mod i think i have worked it out,now just need to get the pics :)

Bigguy

We are currently testing a new bug free version of cbi that works with SMF 2.0 RC1-1. It should be ready shortly. ;)

Bigguy

This is ready for download. For now it will just be at my site but we will soon get it up to the downloads area here.
