winnet

so, anyone found how to redirect in another new window? I dont want to people to leave forum
and conts also will be nice, and useful ofcourse

tks

It wouldn't be hard to make it redirect to a new window.  In the template changes, just just the <a href="..."> to <a href="..." target="_blank">.

As for counting hits, that's pretty easy too, althugh it would mean adding an inbetween...

is this working with 1.0.3 ? I get the following error when applying the mod:

4. Execute Modification ./Sources/ManageBoards.php Failure

winnet

yes, it works both on 1.0.2 and 1.0.3, also works fine after upgrading from 1.0.2 to 1.0.3

but, I did actually  realize that:
because is not counting the visits, and because in right side always display 0 posts in 0 topics, users don't use those links.
in my old forums (phpbb) use to have 40 to 50 daily visits on each of three links like that, now I'm counting 10 visits in total :( sad isn't it?

and so, a great mod became useless; it's your decision to install or not, mod works but no one see :)

winnet

is anyone working on this mode?

OK, I've installed this mod (forgive the lay-ness of this post - it's all I speak).  Everything said "Success".  I'm actually not seeing any new options in the "Manage Boards" section (didn't see anything that said "Modify Boards").

What I wanted to do:

I have an SMF forum located at the root of my domain.  In a subfolder of the same domain, I have a photo album (coppermine) installed.  I want to put a link to coppermine (and vice versa on the coppermine pages), so that forum members can go back and forth between the two applications.  Is this the right application to do this (from the SMF end)?  How would I go about doing this?




[Unknown]

Success is just for the test.  Have you actually proceeded with the installation?

Sorry, yes. Each time it presented me with a [Proceed] link, and each time I pressed it with no errors.

As for this post from Grudge:

Can you download the mod onto your server and make sure that redirectdbP.php exists, just incase I missed it. Otherwise you could download it to your PC, edit packages-info.xml to remove the reference to redirectdbP.php, re tar it and upload it again, this should hopefully make the "install" work. You then need to make the SQL changes, which should be easy to do by looking in redirectDBp.php and using phpMyAdmin to do the queries... hope this makes some vague sense :P

This one made only the vaguest sense to me (but I am a lay-Newb, so there's two strikes there) -

I ftp explored all folders and could find neither redirectdbP.php or packages-info.xml - in fact, I did a search on each of these files and found no reference to either of them anywhere else on the boards. Am I supposed to have them?

(the "...make the SQL changes, which should be easy..." scared the hell out of me, btw.)

OK, I found it. I went into Manage Boards, selected "Modify" next one of my categories, and one of the options presented to me was:

Make this board a redirection board
This will redirect any user attempting to access this board to a URL of your choice

When you create a new board, the same option is presented.

GREAT MOD, THANK YOU.

NOTE: At first I redirected to a subfolder on my site (to Coppermine, which I have integrated with SMF), using the full URL (http://mydomain.com/coppermine [nofollow]) - but whenever I selected the link, it brought me to to the coppermine folder OK, but it showed me as not logged in. Logging in didn't help, and I had no admin status.  After a lot of scratching, experimenting and troubleshooting, I changed the redirection link to just "/coppernine" without the http:// or domain references. Worked like a charm, although I still don't know why.

Thought I'd throw that out there in case someone else runs into the same problem.

I have a bit of a feature request... any way to remove "0 posts 0 topics"?  This makes it look like a discussion board that nobody goes to.

Can we get this updated to 1.0.5?

It should be fine for 1.05 I thought.  Well it is working for me! I also have it working for 1.1 Beta 3 public.

drhamad

Yeah works for me in 1.0.5 as well.

it looks like no one is taking care of this mod. With 0 posts and 0 topics this mod became useless.

I also have it working for 1.1 Beta 3 public.

When I try to install it on Beta 3, I get a warning from the Package Manage.
3.     Execute Modification     ./Sources/Load.php     Test failed
"It is strongly recommended that you do not continue with installation unless you know what you are doing"


Did you just proceed past that ...or what?

Grudge

I wouldn't install it if the step failed. I'll have to try and update this mod for SMF 1.1 I guess :/

Also - for the people who get 0 posts/0 replies - have you installed the "theme" packages or not? They *should* remove those figures I thought?
I'm only a half geek really...
