Funny IDEA or BAD idea?
« on: June 09, 2004, 12:39:26 PM »
Note: This SMF Forum resize picture, please download the attachments to view complete picture

I have a bad idea for board index design 
Hopely, you're not laugh ....  :P

I modified, INDEX.TEMPLATE.PHP (in THEMES directory) for FUNNY purpose.. See my attachment (picture)


If user login normally, the forum will show her or his avatar, NOT Bad avatar like above 
See picture below...


And, if the "easy code" just like this (put in the index.template.php file) SMF Beta 5
Code: [Select]
// Otherwise they're a guest - so politely ask them to register or login.
else
{
echo '
                                                        <img src="http://yourforum.com/Themes/monkey.jpg"><br />
', $txt['welcome_guest'], '<br />
', $context['current_time'], '<br />
 


Or, if you wanna add CODE from Geobytes, that show your visitor CITY Information display dynamically, you can add this code at same file


Code: [Select]
// Show the menu here, according to the menu sub template.
template_menu();

echo '

<script language="Javascript" src="http://gd.geobytes.com/gd?after=-1&variables=GeobytesCountry,GeobytesCity">
</script>
<script language="Javascript">
document.write("Warning! User from "+sGeobytesCity+", "+sGeobytesCountry+", must be above 17 years old");
</script>

</div>';

// The main content should go here.  A table is used because IE 6 just can't handle a div.


PS: Dont laugh on me
Cause I am new on PHP  :D

Hmm, a guest pic isn't a bad idea. Perhaps the SMF logo instead. But I hate multiple use of one smiley...

GOOD JOB!!!

Well, you can rename that to "blank.gif" and upload it to the avatars folder... That will make it the default if they haven't set an avatar.

I've just set it up to see how it looks...

airport-tkd.com/forum

Here's the code I used

Code: [Select]
$txt['welcome_guest'] = '<table width="100%" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
  <tr>
    <td width="5%" valign="middle" align="center"><img src="http://www.airport-tkd.com/forum/Themes/default/images/guestav.jpg"></td>
    <td width="95%">
      <div align="left">Welcome, <b>' . $txt[28] . '</b>. Please <a href="' . $scripturl . '?action=login">login</a> to post.<br />Or do you need to <a href="' . $scripturl . '?action=register">register</a> an account with us?</a></div>
    </td>
  </tr>
</table>';

Have you actually verified this, which you keep saying and I'm almost sure is not the case?
