Title: Mods for 1.1.4
Post by: Tabbee on October 02, 2007, 02:10:27 AM
Hey Please dont get mad if these are already out im extremely new to SMF and didnt like it at first but its really grown on me.. Now, I wanted to request a Shoutbox and quick reply box for the 1.1.4 SMF Version..

Also im using the Minerva theme if that makes a diffence as to if the shout box will work or not..

Quick Reply box is a default feature in SMF...

To enable it for yourself:
Profile -> Look and Layout
Set "Use quick reply on topic display" to "Show, on by default"

To enable it for guests and anyone who registers in the future:
Admin -> Themes and Layout -> Reset Options
Click "Reset the default (guest) options for this theme" under "SMF default theme"
Set "Use quick reply on topic display" to "Show, on by default"

To enable it for all current users:
Admin -> Themes and Layout -> Reset Options
Click "Reset all members' current options for this theme" under "SMF default theme"
Select "Change" next to "Use quick reply on topic display" and set it to "Show, on by default"

There are currently two different shoutbox mods that will work with 1.1.4:
nneonneo's Shoutbox (http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=585)
SMF Shoutbox (http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=412)

The shoutbox mods modify BoardIndex.template.php, which isn't included in the Minerva theme (meaning the one from the default theme will be used), so the most you'll have to do to make them work properly on that theme is copy the images from the default theme.

Download the package to your computer.
Go to Admin -> Packages -> Download Packages
Click "Browse...", browse to the location where you saved that file and double-click it.
Click the "Upload" button.
Click on "[Apply Mod]"
If there aren't any errors, click "Proceed" at the bottom of the screen

I have a question.. Im I suppose to Unzip the file? because when I do and I upload the SMF Shoutbox it tells me that it only accepts cetain files such as zip and ect. And when I dont unzip the file and upload it then I get something telling me that the files might be corrupted OR it isnt compatible with my version of SMF.. If anyone has AIM and can sorta walk me through this PLEASE PLEASE IM me at Trustar1986!!

this has been discussed any number of times...  (try Search?)

append &emulate_version=1.1.3 to the url link when you click the apply mod.


and no... you should not unzip the mod package.

yea, I give up. I need someone to walk me through it .. Im have no computer knowledge other then surfing the web. I have searched and Im guessing the only solution I can think of is to pay someone to do it. But I just paid for my hosting and such for the year so no extra funds atm. maybe, in a few months.. Thanks for everyones advice.

right....   so, again, this is stated in nearly every thread discussing a mod:

if you are not using the default theme, you will have to manually apply some of the modifications to your alternate theme template.php files.

The package parser at sleepycode.com will make it easier to install the mod on other themes as well.

 I am answering this question  for any people that  have this question  in the future.  I really wanted this  shout  box  on my forum  and  had  some  real  trouble  understanding the directions.  What I did  at my forum was  placed it in a center column block and it shows up  on every page  .  That is very helpful too  and  it seems to work  well for me.  The  shout box can be seen at www.frogn.com .  If I am not allowed to say that  please  feel  free to  edit my text admins.  Thanks  and good luck.
