Title: Admins and layout options
Post by: Grendor on May 26, 2007, 11:24:26 AM
Hello I have admin status and have locked the layout so only one theme is used on whole board. My problem is i have a person with reall bad eye sight and they ask if they could choose a different theme. How do i only allow 1 user to look at the themes to choose the best one for him to see?


Thanks
Grendor

Well with this mod (http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=795), you can create a new membergroup and put the member in it (perhaps secondary if you don't want others to see that the member is in the group) and then allow that membergroup to change their themes.

I changed themes last week and I no longer have an administrators tab.  I changed back to the defualt theme, but it is still gone.  How do I get it back?

its in there..

Code: [Select]
// Is the user allowed to administrate at all? ([admin])
if ($context['allow_admin'])
echo ($current_action == 'admin' || $context['browser']['is_ie4']) ? '<td class="maintab_active_' . $first . '">&nbsp;</td>' : '' , '
<td valign="top" class="maintab_' , $current_action == 'admin' ? 'active_back' : 'back' , '">
<a href="', $scripturl, '?action=admin">' , $txt[2] , '</a>
</td>' , $current_action == 'admin' ? '<td class="maintab_active_' . $last . '">&nbsp;</td>' : '';

what happens if you go to your forum, and put ?action=admin on the end of your main forum's URL?

Hello it takes me to the admin screen like the button does. I know how to change the theme for all users to be able to choose a theme, just never saw a choice to allow one user to..


But no worries i will do what previous user said too.

Thanks again.
Fred
