The reason as to why I did it this way is becuase you can give moderators and other members the ability to post announcements.

Well I made a separate permission for it instead of just tying it to just admins.

Thanks Vinspire for the screen shots.  I'll see if I can make some for the default theme as well.

A "Mods" section was added to my administration bar, with a link to the administration area of this modification, below the "Maintenance" section when I installed it... and I don't even have that other modification installed 8).

It should be the last option there.  Also the Admin Modification Menu is optional.  What I did was TLM wrote a mod that it would support my mod and his mod since both mods add "Mod" category to the menu so this mod just makes it into one section if the mod is installed.

That was my first approach but if a board doesn't have post it wont show it and it would take some modification to show it.  I just rather chose to show it separately.

Post by: HecKel on August 16, 2006, 11:30:03 PM
I gave you an admin account on my forum and you tried to install your mod, but you can (like me) so this is you last pm that you sent to me

Quote from: Jay The Code MonkeyIt seems like something went haywire.  Ask your host if they have made changes to PHP recently.

So, now I known that my server hasn't yet PHP 5.0...

Post by: Assistance on August 17, 2006, 02:24:12 AM
about the icons

in 1.1RC2 you can have custom post icons
like the thumbs up, standard, lamp, etc, etc

well I dont have those, as I have custom icons that I have set through the Smileys and Message Icons section.

the list of icons shows the default icons that is shipped with SMF


its not a huge concern for me, as I just uploaded new icons with the same name as the default, but for others and I am sure you want your mod to be on ^^
Title: Re: Global Announcements

Few questions though..

How can I make it bold, sticky, and have a darker background color like the normal "Sticky" has...

Also... is there anyway members can reply to a global announcement??
Title: Re: Global Announcements
Post by: JayBachatero on August 19, 2006, 01:09:43 PM
Edit the MessageIndex.template.php
find

<td ' ,$globalAnnouncement['ga']['enabled'] == 0 ? 'style="background-color: #e9e9e9; color: #8d8d8d;"' : 'class="windowbg"', '>
<a href="' ,$globalAnnouncement['ga']['href'], '" >', $globalAnnouncement['ga']['subject'], '</a>
</td>


Code ( replace) Select

<td ' ,$globalAnnouncement['ga']['enabled'] == 0 ? 'style="background-color: #e9e9e9; color: #8d8d8d;"' : 'class="windowbg3"', '>
<a href="' ,$globalAnnouncement['ga']['href'], '" >', $globalAnnouncement['ga']['subject'], '</a>

//Global Announcements adminIndex text strings.
$txt['global_announcements_admin'] = 'Global Announcements';

Hey Jay,

It would be a cool feature to do a Name override. So instead of my Name I can put like Admin or Another Users name..
Of course things like post count would not be able to display but thats ok...
Maybe have it act like a guest user?

Post by: SleePy on August 21, 2006, 12:54:15 PM
ahh.. dang.. ok..

going to go mess with it and see how I can do this myself then..
Thinking I just need to add a field into the database for it. Then add add a override check box with a field to put a custom user name. And then when it submits it sets id member to 0 and sets username.

Thanks though. Was hoping to get an official release from you..

--Edit--
lol.. I like the feature you added for people who change the id to 0 :) needs a better vid though.

You can just edit the template I believe and change the ID_MEMBER.  Or source code.

???  change id to 0?

Hi!

Finally I installed this mod :D

Some questions/ideas:

Title: Re: Global Announcements
Post by: JayBachatero on August 21, 2006, 05:24:20 PM
Yea if you have the permission to manage global announcements you can see disabled announcements.

Umm never thought about that feature.  I'll look into it in the future.

Scartch that.  Only admins can look at disabled ga in message index.  Minor error there since it's supposed to look into the permissions.

I get this error when trying to add a new announcement (the only option that I see?).

Fatal error: Call to undefined function: cache_get_data() in /home/skylow22/public_html/Sources/Subs-GlobalAnnouncementsAdmin.php on line 57

All the window shows are Announcement Icon, Subject, and Boards. There is no "add announcement" button or anything.

How do I fix this?

There was a mod that did this awhile back, but the mod author left this place and removed his mod. I am not sure if it is supported, but I remember it was at one point after he left SMF. I think Jay is looking into releasing a separate mod for allowing normal topics to become global announcements. We even discussed myself taking a look into doing this. I think it would be great if it was completely compatable with this mod, so I will see how this mod is set up, and see what needs to be done. :)

Actually the super sticky is much easier to do than global announcements.  Super stickies display in ALL the boards so it's just a matter or making the # for suser sticky to another number.  Right now I believe stickies are #2 in the db and locked is 1.  If aka doesn't look into it I'll do it when I get time.

Basically what is does is.  It you have 10 announcements.  Those announcements are sorted by the time that they were added.  Now if you add another announcement but you want that announcement to be the first one, you enter the position that you want it to appear there.

Hello Jay, i just installed your mod and i didnt find anything in this topic bout my problem. Here it is:

i installed your mod successfully and it all works. Except for downloaded themes. It works for default and it shows the Announcements and the Modifications section, but on the WoW theme i used the code:

//Global Announcements adminIndex text strings.
$txt['global_announcements_admin'] = 'Global Announcements';
$txt['global_announcements_mods'] = 'Mods';
$txt['whoallow_globalAnnouncementsAdmin'] = 'Managing the <a href="' . $scripturl . '?action=globalAnnouncementsAdmin">Global Announcements</a>.';
$txt['whoall_globalAnnouncements'] = 'Viewing a Global Announcement';


and it showed the Modifications section and the Global Announcements, only thing it doesnt show is the ANnouncements on the forums. When i go to one of my threads It doesnt show the Global Announcements anywhere. But in Admin panel it shows the global announcements section.

Any ideas? If you already posted a solution, im sorry i must of misunderstood or i missed it.

Its for an older version than 1.0.8 if i've seen correctly, and it doesn't work right when i try and install it via the plugin manager. Is there anyway i can get it on my 1.0.8 forum with a non-default theme now? or do i have to wait until you put out another script... which reminds me, what scripts of this sort are currently in development, if any?   Thanks alot man, i appreciate the help.

That is used to highlight the admin tab when managing announcements.

Hmm .... Still don't get it. Is it possible to provide a screenshot of it ? :)

Ok you see when you in the admin panel and the admin tab it "active".  That's part of it.  It will highlight the admin tab.  This is for SMF Default theme and themes that use tabs.

No.  Change to the default theme and the tab will be on the admin link.

I've installed it manually, and keep getting this error when I try to access a forum that has a Global Announcement in it:

Parse error: parse error, unexpected ';', expecting ')' in .../Themes/jtlff/MessageIndex.template.php on line 171

171: );

It worked long enough for me to create the announcement, and I was able to view it before (after the mod install). Then it wasn't showing up in the Admin CP, so I manually installed the rest, got that part working, but now the Template Parse Error.

Any ideas?

Thank you! :)

I figured it out.

Had an extra:

// Create the button set...
$normal_buttons = array(


Just deleted one, and it works now.

Thank you anyway. Fab mod! :D

Thank you for this mod!
I installed it after I updated my forum from 1.1 RC3 to 1.1 ( I didn't have it when I used RC3) and it works fine, but in the error log appears this (this error is created only by me, when I navigate to the Global announcements tab):

/forum/index.php?action=globalAnnouncementsAdmin;sa=add

8: Undefined index: boards
Fişier: ...public_html/forum/Sources/GlobalAnnouncementsAdmin.php
Linie: 202

I went to the globalannouncementsadmin.php and i saw this in 202 line:
$context['preview_boards'] = $_POST['boards'];



I have to mention that I use just only one mod beside this one: Custom profile field mod.
I use the default theme and romanian language. (I did put the romanian language file for this mod in the default theme and modificate modification.romanian.php accordingly with xml file change instructions).

Thank you for your support!

Post by: drhamad on December 14, 2006, 08:49:46 AM
Ah damn.  This mod is much more polished than what we use on SMF1.0, but at the same time, I don't want to actually REMOVE posts when I no longer feel they're worth announcing.
Title: Re: Global Announcements
Post by: JayBachatero on December 14, 2006, 09:19:59 AM
It shouldn't be to hard to do this though.  Convert announcements to posts.

Post by: Aryan on December 14, 2006, 01:03:10 PM
It seems that mod doesnt work with UTF-8 actually.
I manage cyrillic forums and posting in cyrillic results in this:

Quote??? ???? 2 ???????:
1. ????????? ?????? ???
2. ????? ???? ????, ?? ???? ??? ???? ?? ????????? ??? ?? ????????? ? ????????? ????????????. ????? ?????? ?? ? ? ???????? ?? ???? ??? ?? ??? ???? ??? !

There are only 2 rules:
1. Keep good tone !
2. Every post must be in english only or in bulgarian and translated in english. It will be a little bit difficult until we get used to, but there is no other way !

I use SMF 1.1 installed from scratch with UTF-8 support.
Hope you will fix that nice mod for use on non-english forums :)
Title: Re: Global Announcements
Post by: JayBachatero on December 14, 2006, 11:21:42 PM
Once I update this mod for 1.1 I will make it work with UTF-8 and drop support for 1.1 RC2.
Title: Re: Global Announcements
Post by: Mamoun on December 15, 2006, 12:11:57 PM
Aryan, Try this:
1- Go to phpmyadmin, And then your database, Click the globalannouncement column then click on operations on top and select collation : General utf8 sth like that.
2- Then do the same with the other global announcement column.
3- Open the first GA column, Click "structure", Then change the collation of the fields you found from latin to general utf8.
4- Do the same with the other column.

Done, That fixed my problems with the mod, Thanks goes to Jay of course :)

Title: Re: Global Announcements
Post by: L.G.S on December 17, 2006, 11:32:56 AM
If some themes do not have messageindex.template.php, it doesn't matter because that means the theme reads from the default/file.php

If they can't see any of the boards then they can't see the announcement.

I'm getting errors when adding new announcements, or enabling.
The tables exist and all, but I believe the problem to be MySQL being in strict mode, but I'm not positive since I can't check until tomorrow

I have installed Global Announcements V1.0, under SMF 1.1.1

After installing (no errors, no warnings), all seems to be ok.
I can modify the settings, do a preview of announcements, but soon I try to add an announcement, I get:

Database Error: Field 'modifiedTime' doesn't have a default value


If I manually edit the database and give this field a default value, I get:

Database Error: Field 'modifiedName' doesn't have a default value


Same, I manually give this field a default value, and get:

Database Error: Incorrect integer value: '' for column 'ID_BOARD' at row 1

...and so on.

Whats wrong?

It should show the step that it failed on.

mysticalone and softtouch:  run this query in phpMyAdmin.

AlTER TABLE {$db_prefix}global_announcements
CHANGE COLUMN time time int(10) unsigned NOT NULL default '0',
CHANGE COLUMN modifiedTime modifiedTime int(10) unsigned NOT NULL default '0',
CHANGE COLUMN modifiedName modifiedName tinytext NOT NULL default '',
CHANGE COLUMN icon icon varchar(16) NOT NULL default '',
CHANGE COLUMN subject subject tinytext NOT NULL default '';

ALTER TABLE {$db_prefix}global_announcements_boards
CHANGE COLUMN ID_GA ID_GA mediumint(10) unsigned NOT NULL default '0',
CHANGE COLUMN ID_BOARD ID_BOARD mediumint(10) unsigned NOT NULL default '0';


This should make the mod MySQL Strict mode compatible.

Understood, thank you.

Would you mind considering it as an enhancement to your next release of Global Announcements?

I know I can disable GAs, but they're still on view to Admins and over time they'll clutter a board. I wouldn't want to delete them if they're important - so I'll end up c/ping them into an archive board.

i add the language string in Modifications.english.php :<?php
// Version: 1.1.1; Modifications

?>

// G&S Sticky
$txt['gsticky'] = 'Annuncio Globale';
$txt['gsticky_board'] = 'Board di Default per gli Annunci Globali';
$txt['permissionname_make_gsticky'] = 'Può postare messaggi Globali';

I tried to install this mod from the admin CP but it gives me "Internal Server Error" when uploading it, and now every time I click "packages" I get a "Internal Server Error"

If I delete the GlobalAnnouncements.php file from the "packages" folder it's all ok again

Can anybody help me out on installing it?

I'm using default templates and I've installed the mod from the ACP.

Would it be for the same reason that code was incomplete at the MessageIndex.php?

on this link http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=419
it is written
edit file>$themedir/MessageIndex.template.php</edit file><search for> // Create the button set... $normal_buttons = array(</search for><add [b]before[/b]> // Global Announcements... if (isset($context['globalAnnouncements']) && count($context['globalAnnouncements']) != 0) {
.
.

.

but in install.xml file which goes with hole GA package writes
<file name="$themedir/MessageIndex.template.php">
- <operation>
- <search position=[b]"after"[/b]>
- <![CDATA[ // Create the button set...

if (isset($context['globalAnnouncements']) && count($context['globalAnnouncements']) != 0)

and whats finally right?

Title: Re: Global Announcements
Post by: JayBachatero on February 15, 2007, 09:56:26 AM
Well in regards to your other post that is correct.  SMF has two formats for mod installation.  Boardmod and xml.  The xml can be a little more confusing to install from.  In the board mod we have <search><add after> but in xml we have <search position="before"><add>.  Meaning that the search goes before the add.  So it's like saying add after.

Take a look at SMF Package Parser - The perfect utility for installing mods manually (http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=140034.0).

does your server have an error log that you can get to via FTP?  if there is, check out the scripts.log or something like that and see what's fouling up your forum.  It might be your Load.php file.  If you can restore that file from a previous version or from the latest SMF package, that might do the trick.

From there you'll have to add the lines of codes from your mods or something, but this might be your screen back.

Quoteanywayes i am not using custom theme ..i am using SlickPro_Graphite

SlickPro_Graphite is a custom theme! You are using a custom theme!

If you switch to the default theme your install will probably show as having worked properly...it only installs into the default theme not any other themes.

You ought not to install new items into a live site without testing them first...do this by use of a spare test forum...preferrably two...one test forum that is completely new...not been modded or themed before...the other a copy of the files and database from your live forum. First try it in the new/fresh forum if the mod works for you in that then try it in the copy of the live forum...only if it works in that even consider adding it to your live forum.

I'll let somebody else have the task of explaining to you how to upgrade your forum.

I just can't for life of me work out where to put the custom code in the messageindex.template file on the helios theme, I thought I'd sussed it at one point but it screwed with the tables. I think it may be to do with the fact that I am using the "Important topics hack" ie All stickies above the forum posts.

I'll attach my messageindex.template up, as its to long to post. if anyone can tell where to put the code I'll love you forever.

I installed the Global Announcements mod and when I did I got a bunch of unnecessary text at the top of my site.

This is what it says:
//Global Announcements adminIndex text strings. $txt['global_announcements_admin'] = 'Global Announcements'; $txt['global_announcements_mods'] = 'Mods'; $txt['whoallow_globalAnnouncementsAdmin'] = 'Managing the Global Announcements.'; $txt['whoall_globalAnnouncements'] = 'Viewing a Global Announcement';

I uninstalled the mod and it's still there, any idea why it's there and how to take it off?
Title: Re: Global Announcements
Post by: TrueSatan on June 07, 2007, 05:31:01 PM
@AmazinAzn

Your install and uninstall of this mod obviously didn't go as it should...you need to look Themes/default/languages/Modifications.english.php
The file will have the text you are concerned about at it's end...you need to delete it if you want the mod uninstalled but in any event the problem is caused because the file needs to end with ?> on a line of its own...your file will have that code but not at the end of it.

It's likely that other mods you have installed have caused some issue that has made this mod fail to install properly. I'm surprised that the package manager didn't show you errors in install or uninstall...perhaps it did and you chose to ignore them. If this is the case then you need to manually inspect and, if needed, fix the files that showed errors.

Need to edit the MessageIndex.template.php file.  Take a look at SMF Package Parser - The perfect utility for installing mods manually (http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=140034.0)
That's a great script, however, it doesn't answer my question !

I am using a custom theme and don't have:
  // Create the button set...
   $normal_buttons = array(



Where can i edit?


Seriously, can someone answer? My custom theme doesn't have this line, I have _no_ idea where it should go. Anyone able to explain the step further?

Without inspecting your custom theme I'd only be able to offer this general advice...not all themes can/will support all mods so if you can't resolve this yourself and the theme developer can't help then it might be time for you to consider using a different theme or not using mods the theme makes it difficult or impossible to add. Sadly this tends to be the reality of the situation you are in and I do appreciate that it leaves you with the possibility of a less than ideal choice.

How can make this mod work in Greek Please???
Title: Re: Global Announcements
Post by: TrueSatan on June 30, 2007, 12:44:01 PM
@ Sambalis

Without going through all the code I'd say the obvious first step is to find the following code that the mod will have installed into Modifications.english.php

//Global Announcements adminIndex text strings.
$txt['global_announcements_admin'] = 'Global Announcements';
$txt['global_announcements_mods'] = 'Mods';
$txt['whoallow_globalAnnouncementsAdmin'] = 'Managing the <a href="' . $scripturl . '?action=globalAnnouncementsAdmin">Global Announcements</a>.';
$txt['whoall_globalAnnouncements'] = 'Viewing a Global Announcement';


Copy it to Modifications.greek.php and edit it to change the English items into Greek items...change the part after the "=" sign only.

SMF advisde you to backup both your files and your database prior to installing or uninstalling any mod or theme for that very reason. If you have those backups you can always restore from them with no harm done.

Ok, i first tried to install this mod, but it didn't due to many other mods that are already on my board, so i tried to install it manually.
Everything seemed to go ok, but the needed boards in mysql weren't created.
So, i installed it on a clean installation of smf on my pc's wamp,took the query from there and then ran the sql query, so that the 2 needed boards are created.
But, when i try to activate the mod, it says that these sql boards are not found.
What have i done wrong?
How can i make it work correctly, and communicate with the db?
Thanks in advance for any advice.

@ bruno.cunha

Does the mod appear in your ACP if you switch to the SMF default theme? If so it is installed and working properly.

Like almost all mods this mod only installs into the SMF default theme. If you want to use any other theme (referred to as a custom theme) then you need to edit the files of that them manually to make it work...please see:

http://docs.simplemachines.org/index.php?topic=402.msg531#msg531 (http://docs.simplemachines.org/index.php?topic=402.msg531#msg531)

You have to edit the portuguese language files and insert all the new modifications there. See on the install.xml file what and how english languages files are modified and do that to portuguese language files.

Title: Re: Global Announcements
Post by: TrueSatan on July 12, 2007, 08:26:21 AM
Check your Modifications.english.php file...if your custom theme doesn't have it's own one then the one from the SMF default theme will be used. Look for:

?>

...it should appear once only and at the end of the file on a line of its own. Edit as necessary to make this the case.
Title: Re: Global Announcements
Post by: bruno.cunha on July 12, 2007, 12:17:16 PM
I edited the install.xml and changed where it says .english to portuguese. Uploaded again the file and when installing the mod it had an error in Errors.portuguese.php. The rest of the files were ok. I'm uding the default template.

@ HecKel - It's good to see a fellow country man here :D

Title: Re: Global Announcements
Post by: TrueSatan on July 12, 2007, 01:45:32 PM
Just editing the name of the file isn't sufficient...you need to edit the text in the file to the Portuguese equivalents of the words used in it. You didn't need to edit install.xml...Heckel said..

QuoteSee on the install.xml file what and how english languages files are modified and do that to Portuguese language files.

It would be best if you uninstalled the mod then installed an unmodified version of the mod and then edited the Portuguese language files as per Heckel's advice above...note there are four files to edit. That way the english version will be unmodified and installed in full so that you can use that to check that the mod is working properly.

Title: Re: Global Announcements
Post by: TrueSatan on July 12, 2007, 09:03:58 PM
@ troyrulz007

Prior to trying to install a mod in any custom theme you should install it via the Package manager which will add it to the SMF default theme. Your posting suggests that you did not do this.


When doing a manual installation into a custom theme this mod requires that you add the following code to Modifications.english.php of the custom theme...if the theme has no such file then it will use the file from the SMF default theme and the edits will have already been made in that by the Package manager.


//Global Announcements adminIndex text strings.
$txt['global_announcements_admin'] = 'Global Announcements';
$txt['global_announcements_mods'] = 'Mods';
$txt['whoallow_globalAnnouncementsAdmin'] = 'Managing the <a href="' . $scripturl . '?action=globalAnnouncementsAdmin">Global Announcements</a>.';
$txt['whoall_globalAnnouncements'] = 'Viewing a Global Announcement';


The code above is exactly the code you reported as
Quoteshowing at the top of every page
. The mod won't have added it to any other file and it will only do as you have reported if the ?> in the file is in the wrong place or duplicated.

If you have added the code to the wrong file please remove it.

If your custom theme doesn't have its own messageindex.template.php it will use the one in the SMF default theme and if you installed the mod using the package manager then the edits to that file in the SMF default theme will already have been made.

You need to make the edits to the files in your custom theme's language directory as detailed in the install.xml file of the package.
Title: Re: Global Announcements
Post by: bruno.cunha on July 16, 2007, 06:00:29 AM
@ TrueSatan
The four files you refered to are they the error.portuguese; help.portuguese; admin.portuguese and index.portuguese?
I looked inside those files, and can't understand what to change.

Thanks
Title: Re: Global Announcements
Post by: TrueSatan on July 16, 2007, 08:33:14 AM
@ bruno.cunha

The files are referred to (in their English equivalents) in the install.xml file found in the mod package...they are:

Modifications.english.php...thus Modifications.portugese.php

Help.english.php...thus Help.portugese.php

ManagePermissions.english.php...thus ManagePermissions.portugese.php

Errors.english.php...thus Errors.portugese.php

They should all be in your theme languages directory. If any don't exist you would need to create them using the equivalent english file as a template.

You should look at the english files and what edits the install.xml file seeks to make to them then do equivalent edits to the portugese language files...for example:

$txt['permissionname_global_announcements_admin'] = 'Manage Global Announcements';

in that line you would need to alter Manage Global Announcements to the portugese language equivalent when you add it to the ManagePermissions.portugese.php file but you should not translate the rest of that line...you only alter the part after the equals sign.
Title: Re: Global Announcements
Post by: HecKel on July 16, 2007, 08:47:56 AM
brunho.cunha, you have to open the XML file that make modifications on the language files, templates, source files, etc.

For example:

Search for something like this:

<file name="$languagedir/Who.english.php">
   <operation error="ignore">
      <search position="after"><![CDATA[
?>]]></search>
      <add><![CDATA[
$txt['whoall_blbla'] = 'Viewing the <a href="' . $scripturl . '?action=blabla">Blabla</a> Page';
]]></add>
   </operation>
</file>


As you can see, the file tag tells you what file to edit, the searchposition tag tells you WHERE you have to change, and the add tag tells you what to do.

In this example you have to open Who.portuguese.php, search for ?> and add before (the after you read is where the search result will be) all text between <add><![CDATA[ and ]]></add>.

XML is as an instruction manual ;)

Bruno, i think that would be easier if you ask help on the Portuguese board (http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?board=18.0), what you want is usefull for every MOD that you want to install manually.

That isn't only for this MOD.

This looks to be more of a question for the developer of the custom theme you are using but I suggest that you look at style.css  It is located in themes/theme folder.


You should also be able to edit it directly by logging in on your forum, going to admin, clicking on Themes & Layout, click Modify Themes, then click on "Edit this theme's stylesheet" under the theme you want to modify.

Have you looked at Jay's first post in this topic where he describes how to add the mod to a custom theme? Follow through what he details and see if that fixes the problem.

I only use one theme, SMF Default, so I'm not the best person, by a long way, to sort out theme problems and if that doesn't fix your issue I may have to pass this on this one.

I've tried that...

the Modparser...comes up with an error when run through...so essentially pointless...

The document regarding manual installation of mods describes .xml and older files...which essentially is a reguler zip file...
which...the .tar file isn't...

1) I can't figure out how to "unzip" it...
2) I can't figure out WHAT to do...because normally you'd unzip and then follow the .xml files to figure out how to manually install...seeing as I can't unzip it...I have no idea what to edit...

Title: Re: Global Announcements
Post by: TrueSatan on August 09, 2007, 11:41:02 AM
Your zip file is a kind of archive...there are many different kinds of archives and zip is only one such...several of these different kinds of archives work perfectly well to produce a mod package for SMF...there's nothing whatever wrong in using a .tar or a .tar.gz file. You merely need to use a different piece of software than whatever you use currently to unpack them if your current software doesn't support such archives.

I would suggest tugZIP http://www.tugzip.com/ (http://www.tugzip.com/), IZarc [urlhttp://www.izarc.org/[/url], alZIP http://www.altools.net/ (http://www.altools.net/) or Ultimate Zip http://www.ultimatezip.com/ (http://www.ultimatezip.com/) as four excellent and entirely free products that would do the job perfectly well for you on the Windows platform...Linux handles such files natively.

You should then be able to proceed as normal.

JayBachatero,

Yes, I'm trying to upgrade very soon, just want to fix a few things before that.

2nd, I added those strings into GlobalAnnouncementsAdmin.english.php, not GlobalAnnouncements.englush.php (which I couldn't find), however it still does the same thing.

The options (add/edit) show in the admin when I switch to the English language, and when I switch to another language, the 'Global Announcements" still shows under "Mod", but when I click it, it doesn't shows the buttons where I can add\edit\delete the annoucements.

Thank you for the response. So here is what I did:

1, I translate all the strings in the GlobalAnnouncementsAdmin.english.php into Chinese
2, Overwrite the old one, but it still doesn't show the "Edit", "Add" and "Settings" tabs when I click the Global Announcement under Mod.
3, However if I switch the forum language to English, then I can see all the translated strings as  "Edit", "Add" and "Settings".

Is there anything I'm missing?

Title: Re: Global Announcements
Post by: TrueSatan on August 23, 2007, 12:29:44 PM
 You should leave the old english file alone and upload a new file Admin.chinese.php so that when you select English as your forum language the english file will be used and when you select Chinese the Chinese file will be used. You need to treat all the other english files for the mod the same way:

Modifications.english.php
Help.english.php
ManagePermissions.english.php
Errors.english.php

You probably already have Chinese versions of the above files but the code this mod puts into the English files needs to be translated to Chinese and applied to the Chinese files.

To change the title of the GA to another language go to your MessageIndex.template.php file in each of your theme directories (supposing you use more than one theme) and find the followign block of code:


// Global Announcements...
if (isset($context['globalAnnouncements']) && count($context['globalAnnouncements']) != 0)

In that look at the line that says:

...and that is what you have to change.

I have successfully installed this Global Announcement mod and have tested posting a record.  But I am experiencing Javascript Errors that can be found in the bottom Status Bar and the Announcement Icon does not work too.

First JavaScript Error experienced when I access the "Add GA" page:

Line: 207
Char: 6
Error: Expected identifier, string or number
Code: 0
URL: http://localhost/tabletopwars2007/bb/index.php?action=globalAnnouncementsAdmin;sa=add


Then when I select an Announcement Icon from the dropdown combo field, the ff. Javascript error happens:

Line: 236
Char: 1
Error: Object expected
Code: 0
URL: http://localhost/tabletopwars2007/bb/index.php?action=globalAnnouncementsAdmin;sa=add


I checked the code of the "GlobalAnnouncementsAdmin.template.php" file and the "Add GA" web page and found out the ff. suspicious codes:

The "$icon['is_last'] ? '' : ','" entry in line 141 seem to have error as the generated html codes does not remove the last comma (,) from the last icon file path (just before the "}") which is the "wink" portion.

For the Announcement Icon error, I found out that the code that automatically selects the chosen dropdown option is missing.  I mean the ff. code is not there so any option selected does nothing:

, $icon['value'] == $context['icon'] ? ' selected="selected"' : ''

I tired fixing this but couldnt successfully do it.  Can anybody help me? Thanks!

I think I figure it out myself. Here is what I did:

1, Open "$themedir/MessageIndex.template.php"
2, Find code
// Global Announcements...
if (isset($context['globalAnnouncements']) && count($context['globalAnnouncements']) != 0)
{
echo '

// Loop through the Global Announcements

</td>
<td ' ,$globalAnnouncement['ga']['enabled'] == 0 ? 'style="background-color: #e9e9e9; color: #8d8d8d;"' : 'class="windowbg"', '>

}

echo '

3, Movee them after (very beginning)
echo '

4, Save and upload. Bann, works.

Please check to see that in ACP>Server Settings your forum language is set to English and not English utf8 and see if that fixes it.

Title: Re: Global Announcements
Post by: TrueSatan on September 11, 2007, 06:33:25 AM
The only time I've see this mod fail and the normal fixes not put it right was when the server in use had incorrect settings such that what it claimed was CHMOD 777 etc wasn't and the file ownership rights were wrong...it's a long shot but that's the only thing that springs to my mind.

If you were to try it on an otherwise empty and fresh test forum and it failed there it would be a strong pointer to server issues...not a great help I know.
Title: Re: Global Announcements
Post by: Tick on September 11, 2007, 05:53:27 PM
Yes it is very strange indeed.  I did check all the file permissions and all was 777.  I have checked every file that the mod affects and all seem to be right.  The mod is working fine it just gives off the error in the error log.   Hopefully someone may have an answer for me on this.

I have been looking into this mod and decided to install it, however I do not have the particular lines you mention to look for in index.template.php and MessageIndex.template.php

I have put the files in a zip and have it here
<link removed>

If you could look over it and give me some pointers, it'd be a great help to me.

I'm trying to understand what you mean but you message is rather confused. I think you are saying that you had the mod installed and working properly in SMF 1.1.3 then updated to SMF 1.1.4 and the mod stopped working. This can happen when you update the SMF version as the  edits mods make may be overwritten by the forum update...the resolution for it is to go through the process of a manual install and to put the necessary edits into the files once more.

When I installed it a while ago it was fine and then it started to disappear as in the link to modify the settings was gone and the extra space was left. Then, today, when I had upgraded to 1.0.4 I could not even view my global announcements. Do you want a screen shot?

@ writerrobert680

It sounds as though you may have changed your forum langusge from English (perhaps to English utf8)...you need to make sure it is set to English.

You need to go to ACP>Server Settings and set your forum language to English and not English utf8 and to ACP>Features and Options>Basic Settings and uncheck Enable user-selectable language support.

I would suggest that as you say only some of the mod text wasn't there earlier if the above change doesn't work that you go through the process of a manual installation of the mod and check that it is all in place and hasn't been overwritten (perhaps by another mod.)

@ Kichu

No, not a feature of this mod.

I couldn't begin to hazard a guess at what mod might have changed your files but the resolution would be the same in any case...go through the process of a manual install and make sure that all items relating to this mod are properly in place.

Your initial bug report said that over time, and in stages, part of the mod failed...it is this that makes me think that at each of these stages part of the mod has been overwritten or edited in such a way that it stops working.

You would need to work with a test forum to see which of your mods might be causing a problem by a process of trying and eliminating them.

Sorry for my english
I have a problem with mod Global Announcements

When I am in the index of the forum, the order that one sees in the forum is:

Categoria
|_Foro1
|_Foro2
       |_Subforo1
       |_Subforo2

If I enter inside Foro1 one sees

-Global Announcements
-Mensajes del Foro1

Hitherto quite correct.
The problem is that when I enter(approach) the Foro2 that has inside Subforums, one sees:

-Subforos
  |_Subforo1
  |_Subforo2

-Global Announcements
-Mensajes del Foro2

In short: the subforums over Global Announcements when I believe that it  has to be upside-down?
Global Announcements must go first, after the subforums and finally the messages of the forum where I am
Since I can arrange it?

It sounds as though you are either not using the SMF Default theme or not using English (meaning also don't use English utf8) as your forum language. If you wish to use another theme than the SMF default one you will need to manually install the mod into it and if you wish to use a different language you will need to translate the mod into it.

@ perro88

Maybe the above gives a clue to the issues prompting your query too.

It sounds as though you are either not using the SMF Default theme or not using English (meaning also don't use English utf8) as your forum language. If you wish to use another theme than the SMF default one you will need to manually install the mod into it and if you wish to use a different language you will need to translate the mod into it.

@ perro88

Maybe the above gives a clue to the issues prompting your query too.
well the link to the settings of the mod didn't appear at first time but corrected after a manual change. the mod also added a permission and just wanted to know if some other option might be missing on my forum so I can try to check the error

It would appear that you have the admin options OK...the only permission change is in the "Forum administration" and is "Manage Global Announcements". The options in the ACP>Global Announcements should be "Modify GA, Add GA, Settings, Credits".

Great mod! Thanks you all!!!
But it do not show Vietnamese (UTF-8) Correctly T_T
Please help me!
I don't know y but it's working just fine when i click on Preview and it show ok... but when i add it, it's troubled with the font.. show "??" instead of UTF-8 Vietnamese...

What should i do?
Title: Re: Global Announcements
Post by: TrueSatan on January 01, 2008, 04:40:58 AM
You will need to translate the mod to Vietnamese as that language is not part of it by default. There are several files that you will need to change as well as the edits the mod makes to English language files...these will have to be made to Vietnamese language files as well.

You need to manually add the code to the template.  I've posted how to do it a few times before.  Search in this topic.

Hummm,

Don't what to think here, I tried installing the Mod and everything checked fine but the Mod did not fully install (even though it told it did)(Could this be a rights problem on my server root?

So I proceeded to manually install it. Now that everything seem to be in place, trying to access the globalAnnouncementsAdmin area just shows me my main Board Index page.

This does not generate an error. I also tried to access the page directly but got a "Hacking attempt" message just like at the top of the GlobalAnnouncementsAdmin.php file.

I am using the default theme (although images and Style.css have been modified) and SMF 1.1.4

Anything I can do to make this work?

TIA
Michel

Title: Re: Global Announcements
Post by: TrueSatan on January 20, 2008, 07:22:24 PM
There are several possible reasons why this may happen...in fact the mod is compatible with your forum and the failure suggests other issues. It could be that your forum is hosted on a server with a 64 bit operating system (there is a fix for this so please say if it is the case and I'll post the fix.) You may need to go to ACP>Packages>Options and uncheck "Create Backup versions of replaced files with a tilda (~) on the end of their names." You may need to use the same path to make all files writeable and you may need to add a "temp (sans quotes" directory to your packages directory and CHMOD it to 777.

The package parser on http://www.smfhelper.info/forum/package.php5 (http://www.smfhelper.info/forum/package.php5) will output the details of the mod so as to make a manual installation easier should you need to use that method.

Odd. I installed it and it said my index.template had a problem so I fixed it. I simply can not get the global annoucement to show in the admin panel.

Im using a default template and 1.14. I made sure the modifications.english.php file had the listings in it and it does. Is there another file I need to edit to show in Admin panel?

Sorry for my english
I have a problem with mod Global Announcements

When I am in the index of the forum, the order that one sees in the forum is:

Categoria
|_Foro1
|_Foro2
       |_Subforo1
       |_Subforo2

If I enter inside Foro1 one sees

-Global Announcements
-Mensajes del Foro1

Hitherto quite correct.
The problem is that when I enter(approach) the Foro2 that has inside Subforums, one sees:

-Subforos
  |_Subforo1
  |_Subforo2

-Global Announcements
-Mensajes del Foro2

In short: the subforums over Global Announcements when I believe that it  has to be upside-down?
Global Announcements must go first, after the subforums and finally the messages of the forum where I am
Since I can arrange it?


Please help me

 Please use the Package Parser on the followign link to output all the changes this mod makes (other package parser installations may not work with this mod but I know that the one below does.)

http://www.smfhelper.info/forum/package.php5 (http://www.smfhelper.info/forum/package.php5)

Check, in particular, Modifications.english.php but if one file has a problem it would be wise to check them all.

Thanks for the help on that parser. I just basically went through each bit of code and got it to work, but I had  to change one thing and Im not sure what I really changed but got it to load into the Admin area.

//A new mods section for the Global Announcements.
if ((isset($modSettings['admin_areas_other']) && $modSettings['admin_areas_other'] == 1) && allowedTo('global_announcements_admin'))
{
$context['admin_areas']['other']['areas']['ga_admin'] = '<a href="' . $scripturl . '?action=globalAnnouncementsAdmin">' . $txt['global_announcements_admin'] . '</a>';
}
elseif (!isset($modSettings['admin_areas_other']) || (isset($modSettings['admin_areas_other']) && $modSettings['admin_areas_other'] == 0) && allowedTo('global_announcements_admin'))
{
$context['admin_areas']['ga_admin'] = array(
'title' =>  $txt['global_announcements_mods'],
'areas' => array(
'ga_admin' => '<a href="' . $scripturl . '?action=globalAnnouncementsAdmin">' . $txt['global_announcements_admin'] . '</a>',
),
);
}


Changed
admin_areas_other'] == 1
to
admin_areas_other'] == 0

and the second listing of it

['admin_areas_other'] == 0
to
['admin_areas_other'] == 1

I suggest you look into banning those ips.  Trying random exploits for different scripts trying to see if they work on SMF.  Look at the id part.  Trying to include a file.  RFI - Remote File Inclusion

Excellent!! Thanks :D

*edit* I'm having an issue with the package.... does smf package manager support tar.gz or do I need to repackage it into a zip?
**edit** I repackaged it to a zip file and it worked fine.

On installation though I got this error
QuoteGlobal Announcements Database Changes
Error: Adding global_announcements table failed.
Error: Adding global_announcements_boards table failed.
Error: The installer was unable to enable the Global Announcements. To enable go to Admin > Features and Options2: mysql_fetch_array(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL result resource
File: ./htdocs/FORUMS/Packages/temp/ga_install.php
Line: 72Database Error: MySQL server has gone away
File: ./htdocs/FORUMS/Sources/Load.php
Line: 2010

this failed:
./Sources/ManagePermissions.php
*edit* I see... it's already been altered so I'm going to try a manual install. I like this function of SMF.
           I've never made an SQL table before. (another error I got) GA installed partially so now I just need to finish. When I access the GA Admin menu I get
QuoteTable 'b13_928611_smf1.smf_global_announcements' doesn't exist
File: ../htdocs/FORUMS/Sources/GlobalAnnouncementsAdmin.php
Line: 101

So I'm guessing if I create the table, it'll work.... or at least get me closer. I'm using phpMyAdmin if that helps.
*EDIT* I guessed correctly. I created the tables and it seems to be working. But the package manager says it still needs to be installed. how do I change it so it recognizes it?

*Last Edit*I looked and thought I figured it out.... after looking over the changes that needed to be made I installed it anyway and it worked except that I had 2 GA "Boards" with x number of announcements depending on how many boards I picked. So then I uninstalled it but it didn't Uninstall so it works but says it needs to be installed.

Can someone please help?

I also noticed that the x number of posts glitch didn't go away. So unless I choose "all boards" I get the same number of posts of however many number of boards I had chosen. (See attachments)

If you completely manually installed it, you can't. 

QuoteI looked and thought I figured it out.... after looking over the changes that needed to be made I installed it anyway and it worked except that I had 2 GA "Boards" with x number of announcements depending on how many boards I picked.

Are you sure you installed it correctly?  With all the installing and uninstalling some code may have got left behind perhaps.

When you say you uninstalled it but it didnt uninstall, what do you mean?

did you take a backup of your sources files before starting this exercise?



Title: Re: Global Announcements
Post by: Jumpmasterrt on May 01, 2008, 11:39:13 AM
Well quite frankly that's the freakiness of the whole thing..... I only hit the install or apply mod link ONCE. It installed itself when I uploaded it (I know that sounds crazy but I swear it did) and I got the one error on the permissions file. So I did nothing

Then I looked and decided to "install" because of the multi post glitch, and I got the double GA board (with the multi post glitch)

So I uninstalled it and now it's listed back as needing to be installed or applied but it totally works (with only that one glitch). See screenshot

Yes I made backups and I actually didn't manually install anything except for the 2 required tables.
Title: Re: Global Announcements
Post by: Jumpmasterrt on May 01, 2008, 04:34:39 PM
Well, I got it fixed..... I took a chance and edited the ../Packages/installed.list with the install info and now it shows up as being installed with the [ Uninstall ] command instead of the [Apply Mod]

Thanks for at least trying to help perplexed, if you happen to come up with some idea as to why the multi post happens when I sellect any number of board instead of "all", let me know. :D  I'm going to keep looking at the script paths and see if I can figure it out as well.

*Edit*After reading through the main php file, it looks as though I may have set the sql tables wrong or missed something or his functions for other than "all" don't work.

*Edit*Oh I'm such a tool... here's the deal. I was picking the CATEGORIES, not the actual boards, guess what the ID is for the categories? 0 which is the same as the "all" function. So since I was picking 3 different categories it listed it 3 times in every board.

So, new question.... I'm going to try and mod this mod if it's not already done, but how can we highlight a category to get it to list in all the boards underneath? (See attachment)

Hi there,

This is a great mod! Thanks for that!
I have a small question. I assume this is the code used in messageindex.template.php to make the announcement to appear:
// Global Announcements...
   if (isset($context['globalAnnouncements']) && count($context['globalAnnouncements']) != 0)
   {
      echo '<div class="tborder"><table class="collapse">
                  <tr>
               <td colspan="', empty($options['display_quick_mod']) ? '7' : '8', '" class="catbg7">Globale Mededelingen</td>
            <tr>
            ';

         // Loop through the Global Announcements
         foreach ($context['globalAnnouncements'] as $globalAnnouncement)
         {
            echo '
            <tr>
               <td class="forum_bg4" align="center">
                  <img src="', $settings['images_url'], '/post/' .$globalAnnouncement['ga']['icon']. '.gif" alt="" />
               </td>
               <td class="forum_bg4" align="center">
                  <img src="', $settings['images_url'], '/post/exclamation.gif" alt="" />
               </td>
               <td ' ,$globalAnnouncement['ga']['enabled'] == 0 ? 'style="background-color: #e9e9e9; color: #8d8d8d;"' : 'class="forum_bg4"', '>
                  <a href="' ,$globalAnnouncement['ga']['href'], '" >', $globalAnnouncement['ga']['subject'], '</a>
               </td>
               <td class="forum_bg4">
                  ', $globalAnnouncement['member']['link'], '
               </td>
               <td align="center" class="forum_bg4">
                  --
               </td>
               <td align="center" class="forum_bg4">
                  ', $globalAnnouncement['ga']['views'], '
               </td>
               <td class="forum_bg4" colspan="', empty($options['display_quick_mod']) ? '1' : '2', '">
                  ', $globalAnnouncement['ga']['time'], '
               </td>
            </tr>';
         }

      echo '</table></div>';
   }


What changes do I have to make to make the announcements appear also in the boardindex template? If I use code above it doesn't do anything.

I am using the default theme, with SMF version 1.1.5.

Title: Re: Global Announcements
Post by: Angelotus on July 07, 2008, 01:35:33 AM
You have to unzip the package local. Then search for these files
- GlobalAnnouncementsAdmin.english.php
Upload this file via ftp to the language folder of your theme.

Second of all edit you Modifications.english.php of your theme
At this to the end:
//Global Announcements adminIndex text strings.
$txt['global_announcements_admin'] = 'Global Announcements';
$txt['global_announcements_mods'] = 'Mods';
$txt['whoallow_globalAnnouncementsAdmin'] = 'Managing the <a href="' . $scripturl . '?action=globalAnnouncementsAdmin">Global Announcements</a>.';
$txt['whoall_globalAnnouncements'] = 'Viewing a Global Announcement';


In help.english.php add this to the end

$helptxt['global_announcements_enable'] = 'This will override the local enable/disable setting for Global Announcements and enable it or disable it';


in ManagePermissions.english.php
add this in the end
//Global Announcements permissions.
$txt['permissionname_global_announcements_admin'] = 'Manage Global Announcements';
$txt['permissionhelp_global_announcements_admin'] = 'If you enable this permission for this membergroup they will be allowed to add, edit, delete Global Announcements';


and in Errors.english.php add
$txt['cannot_calendar_view'] = 'Sorry, but you are not allowed to view the calendar.';
]]></search>
<add><![CDATA[
$txt['cannot_global_announcements_admin'] = 'Sorry, you\'re not allowed to admin the Global Announcements area.';


These are the english files offcourse. You can edit your language files the same way, maybe wanna translate it ;)

I did everything you said, add the GlobalAnnouncementsAdmin.english.php file, and checked the modifications to all the other files (they were all modified already, exactly as you described). Since the one file didn't come up with a warning as to being overwritten when I uploaded it to my server, I checked the other files, and found out that GlobalAnnouncementsAdmin.template.php and GlobalAnnouncements.template.php also weren't in correctly, but the files that didn't go into my Themes folder (the ones in Sources) were all in place.

However, the only change was to make my admin panel show a link to the GA page, and nothing else. From this (http://potatomouseproductions.com/Images/installed_02.png) to this (http://potatomouseproductions.com/Images/installed_04.png).

What could cause there to be nothing on the actual page? Is there something else that I need to add/change?

Have you already tried to go through  the install procedure manually?
Title: Re: Global Announcements
Post by: mikekearn on July 07, 2008, 03:41:54 AM
I tried that once, going through and manually editing all the files, but when I got to the ga_install.php section, I was stumped, and didn't know how to run SQL queries. I then was told to just upload that file to my server and go to it in my browser, but it gives me a list of errors about passwords, so I went back to trying to install it the normal way, and still can't get it to work.
Title: Re: Global Announcements
Post by: Angelotus on July 07, 2008, 04:05:00 AM
Running the sql queries isn't that hard.
Have you got phpmyadmin?
Log on to your dbase, press the SQL button, insert the code and run. That will install the necessary fields (if not already excist offcourse).
Title: Re: Global Announcements
Post by: mikekearn on July 07, 2008, 04:16:03 AM
I tried running the SQL myself, but it just gave me an error every time, like so: image 5 (http://potatomouseproductions.com/Images/installed_05.png). Like I said, I don't know anything about SQL, so I'm not really sure I'm doing it right, but what I gathered was opening up phpMyAdmin, inserting the code listed, and hitting "GO" and that's it. If there is something I'm missing, I don't know what it is.
Title: Re: Global Announcements
Post by: Angelotus on July 07, 2008, 04:36:56 AM
You have to replace

{$db_prefix}

into your database prefix (standard it is set to smf_ )

Then try running it again.
Title: Re: Global Announcements
Post by: mikekearn on July 07, 2008, 04:47:57 AM
I did that, and now all the SQL things went fine except the last one, which gave an error: "#1060 - Duplicate column name 'gaOrder' "

The GA page on my Admin section still looks exactly the same as before (http://potatomouseproductions.com/Images/installed_04.png).

Thanks, by the way, for all the help you've given. It may not have worked so far, but I'm at least a lot closer than I was! I think... :-\
Title: Re: Global Announcements
Post by: Angelotus on July 07, 2008, 05:11:38 AM
That last error I also received. Search this topic and you find that many more people have encountert that message. Shouldn't be a problem though.

Quick question: what language do you use as admin? Is that english? and are you 100% sure that you have edit all the necessary language files for this mod?
I ask you this because if I look at your screenshot it appears this mod is working, only not all the language strings are there...
Title: Re: Global Announcements
Post by: mikekearn on July 07, 2008, 05:15:59 AM
That was the problem! Thank you so much! I thought I was using English, but apparently I was using English-UTF8, which I guess is something different? I don't know how that happened, but it works now, so again, thank you very much!

If you have installed it completely and correctly (which took me a while ::)) you just click your "Admin" section and it should be on the very bottom of the left-hand sidebar, under the heading "Mods", saying "Global Announcements". Click that, and it'll take you to the Global Announcements section, where you can post them. Cheers!

My forum is based on default skin..... Maybe I should edit some stuff?

If you do not have everything exactly default, then you may have to edit the code yourself. I ended up doing this for a custom theme I am using. Check here (http://docs.simplemachines.org/index.php?topic=402.0) for information on how to do that. Since it works, you know that you've installed it correctly, and you just need to modify your theme to display the GA section right.

Post by: Cal O'Shaw on August 06, 2008, 11:20:45 PM
Hello,

This is a really nice MOD but I did run into two things, one a bit of information, the other appears to be a bug.

Information clarification:
It might be helpful to include in the description for this MOD that a permission is added in Admin CP -> Permissions for each member group to be able to manage Global Announcements (The Moderator group does not appear to have that permission as a selectable choice).

Bug:
What I had been hoping to do is create a series of Global Announcements that would remain queued up but disabled until needed (planned system outage, etc).  I had tested a Global Announcement in a few boards (which is a wonderful option, grazie mille) and then unchecked the "enable Global Announcement" box for that announcement.  I as an Admin was surprised to see the Global Announcement was still visible and readable.  One of my Global Moderators also saw it, but when she tried to open it, she got this message:

"An Error Has Occurred!
The id you entered is not valid or it does not exist."
We're using 1.1.5 and the default theme.  It should also be noted that I had not given Global Moderators permission to administer Global Announcements (not realising there was such a permission).  Even so, I suspect regular members would encounter the same problem because they most certainly will not be given such permission.


Would it be possible to investigate this and determine if the problem is mine (in assuming the "enable" checkbox would control the Global Announcement section appearing on an Index page and showing the Global Announcement) or in the MOD?

Grazie,

Cal

Hello,

Sorry if I sound like I'm finding fault, as I really do like this MOD and have it running.  Thank you very much for taking the time to create it.

I like having the Global Announcement showing up on all or a subset of boards, but I was surprised it did NOT show up on the main Index page.  I would have thought it would be there if one selects "All boards", so that people would see it as soon as they logged in.

Would it be possible to have it on the main Index Page as well?

Grazie,

Cal

For people who don't have --

   // Create the button set...
   $normal_buttons = array(


-- in their theme so they don't know where to place the code, I put mine after this --


if (!empty($options['show_board_desc']) && $context['description'] != '')
{
echo '
<table width="100%" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" border="0" class="tborder" style="margin-bottom: 1ex;">
<tr>
<td class="catbg" width="100%" height="24">
<span class="smalltext">', $context['description'], '</span>
</td>
</tr>
</table>';
}


And it worked fine.

I've scrolled thru most of this thread and have not found any thing similar to what my problem is. My apologies if it's here and I missed it.

Two days ago one of our admins setup a new GA. He selected the option to send an e-mail to the members. When he did not receive an e-mail himself he assumed that it didn't work and tried it again. Altogether he tried it five times. Some of us - like me - received all five of those e-mails. Some only received two of them, and others did not receive any of them. The Receive forum announcements and important notifications by email option within each member's profile didn't make a difference. I know of several members who have that turned on and they did not receive the notifications.

We currently only have about 800 members. Could it be that our e-mail server can't handle trying to send something to that many recipients at one time? It should be able to handle that and more. I'm just at a loss to explain this.
Title: Re: Global Announcements
Post by: Leadfoot on August 14, 2008, 12:47:57 PM
I have some new info to add. Just found out that when he was sending those GA's it would get to around 20% complete and then stop. Would that be something within SMF or a fault within the e-mail server?

Should look like

And in for example Moddifications.enlgish.php there should be $txt['ga']

How can I remove the excessive icon?

It is redundant and it causes the tables not to be aligned with the main threads.

Images attached to illustrate below.



Also, I would like to just set the global announcement to redirect to a thread of my choice.  The current method looks more like a personal message, and people cannot reply.  And because I'd probably need to post a topic for the announcement anyway, it might as well just redirect.

Costa, just to say something, you have the file names wrong, is portuguese_brazilian and not only brazilian. That's how SMF has the language package, with wrong names that can confuse some newbies.

Great mod. thanks.

Note: When you turn "count views" to off, it leaves the view count at zero. I wanted to make it "--" just like the replies does. To do that:

MessageIndex.template.php

Find


<td align="center" class="windowbg">
', $globalAnnouncement['ga']['views'], '
</td>


Replace with

<td align="center" class="windowbg">
--
</td>

I've been wanting this for years.  It has never been offered in this mod.  There was an older mod that did, but hasn't been supported since 1.0.
Title: Re: Global Announcements

Sorry for not replaying any time sooner.  This mod is up for grabs by anyone that wants to take over.  I want/need to upgrade it to work on 2.0 but I just haven't had the time to do so.  I'm working, school and other side projects and not enough time to devote to it.

Hey NIBOGO, no need for sarcasm dude...you've misinterpreted my post.

I KNOW YAGAM was written for 2.0 only, that's why I didn't even make any attempt to install it because I run 1.1.8.

Another reason I bothered to post at all was so that other 1.1.8 users would know it will work for them because it hasn't been updated for a while.  :)

Joe

In your Admin CP, left hand side column you have:

Main, Configuration, Forum, Members, Maintenance, Mods = >Global Announcements

If it installed peoperly, you will see it if you are using default theme... If you are using a custom theme then you'll have to tinker with some files. I had to...

Or you can access it by http://yoursite.com/index.php?action=globalAnnouncementsAdmin


Anyways, I have a small problem in sorting the global announcements once they are made. My sorting doesn't seem to work. Is there a way of changing the default sorting method? (in which file)
Thanks

this may be related to trying to use it on 1.1.11.  if so i apologize in advance.

i am able to install the mod successfully.  when i make a "test" GA, it does so correctly, applying it to whatever forums i tell it to.  my problem is that when i (or any user) clicks on the GA to read it, it gives an HTTP 500 error.  when i go back into admin-->mods-->GA's and try to edit the GA, i get the same http error.  i have to disable GA to get them to leave.  i can't even delete or modify the "test" GA that i created?

any help?

I know it's got somthing to do with ['member_color_link']  or something being added somewhere.

I am not PHP programmer, but I think you should change the time in php.ini file

look for
Quotemax_input_time = 30
Then change the time to 60, or longer.
