SMF vs. Godzilla? Who do you think will win?

Nice but I have suggestions for features and improvement:
Quote from: List

  • Ability to change size of box
  • Area specifically for Notepad as it takes up space pushing administrative content down
  • Formatting might be nice

Thanks vbgamer45.

Great mod. Awesome & I am loving it but I am sure it would be better if you could enhance it.

Anyway, you rock !!! :)

I've been poking at it for a while now. I'm really quite fond of it. It would be interesting to see syntax highlighting supported as well as being able to have multiple notes. ;)

Another suggestion,

Maybe a user notepad, like in IPB, each user has their own little notepad in their profile. That would be koolio.

PS I requested this mod, yay!

i use rc3 1.1 and i am getting this:

"The package you are trying to download or install is either corrupt or not compatible with this version of SMF." 

vbgamer45

Only works on SMF 1.1 you would need to download and edit the package-info.xml file and set it to installfor 1.1 RC3

Not knocking the work... all efforts towards mods are appreciated... but it seems somewhat redundant.
It's just as easy IMO to create a sub board in the forums that is only accessible to Moderators & Admins.

LOL I suppose I can see the reason one might think that but, well, it is exactly the same except entirely different. Without needing to make, edit, and change things you get a nice handy place to leave notes such as "to-do" or quick reminders that can be edited with little or no fanfare. There's no additional overhead created really and it's a single click away.

*grins*

I just wish I could find ways to leave 'em all over the forum in various places. I'd like it if it were more robust. Nobody but the admin sees it so, well, why not toss 'em all over the place?

Made a change to the server settings? Document the changes right there. Adjusted the themes? Document 'em. Error log generally filling up too fast to bother turning it on to see how well CAPTCHA is doing its job? Turn on error logging and leave a note saying when you turned it on so that way you can see how many are blocked during that time span and estimate how well CAPTCHA does its job.

(Nothing personal - I just figured I'd give an opposing view or at least list a more detailed reason as to why I enjoy this mod.)

Well how can i edit it? im kinda new in this forum thing... so can you tell me step by step?

grusomhat

I have people that I call half admins who can do quite a bit but they don't have access to the main admin options. They cannot edit the notpad because the can't admin that part of the place.

Is there a simple bit of code to put in so they can edit the notepad?

RoarinRow

Cool, thanks.  I love mods!   ;D

Errr. just change the line in Notepad.php from:


//Check if they are allowed to admin forum in some way.
isAllowedTo('admin_forum');


to...


//Check if they are allowed to admin forum in some way.
//isAllowedTo('admin_forum');
isAllowedTo(array('admin_forum', 'manage_permissions', 'moderate_forum', 'manage_membergroups', 'manage_bans', 'send_mail', 'edit_news', 'manage_boards', 'manage_smileys', 'manage_attachments'));


You can strip the appropriate permissions check from line 133 in Admin.php for your forum - thats the line that checks if they can see anything on the admin page at all - so if you want everyone who can do anything even slightly admin wise to edit the box contents just copy that there line.

Just installed it, said all good. but cant see the text box on the admin page? New to all this, what files, code and where do I need to edit?
