was not updated for beta3, was not updated for rc1, it will not be to rc2. More simple then that what do you people want?
crystal clear.

Updating mods is a boring tedious chore.  Updating for different versions of a beta release is even more annoying.  Just because he hasn't made a version for 1.1 yet doesn't mean he won't.

I am waiting for it as well. ;) Just letting you know.

I have found something interesting out about the board areas.

You can have redirection boards WITHOUT any modifications.

All you have to do is use HTML to link somwhere in the board title.

E.G <a href=http://www.google.com>Visit Google!</a> in the board title gives you a direct link to google!

I have SMF 1.1 RC 2 with SMF Arcade installed and I cannot install the redirection boards "core".

I get these errors:

4.    Execute Modification    ./Sources/ManageBoards.php    Test failed

Whoops, misread "1.0 RC2" as "1.1 RC 2".

I do that sometimes too ;)

But as a temporary solution, why not read my post which is above your first one?

it would be nice if someone write a piece of code to count the number of visits.
else, the redirected forum looks like a forum with zero posts, and no user are tempted to enter there.

you sir are a <insert word here> genious, this works perfectly. i have also implemented this in my category titles, instead of using the link to collapse them

L.G.S

With a helping post comes another!

I didn't know it could be used for categories too :P

Thanks for that!
I expanded on it a little to get rid of the link on the new posts icon on the left:
In 1.1RC2 BoardIndex.template.php:
Find:
Quote
   global $context, $settings, $options, $txt, $scripturl, $modSettings;
And Replace With:
Quote
   global $context, $settings, $options, $txt, $scripturl, $modSettings;
   //Add redirection boards into this array
   $redirect = array(boards);

Find:
Quote
            <td ' , !empty($board['children']) ? 'rowspan="2"' : '' , ' class="windowbg" width="6%" align="center" valign="top"><a href="', $scripturl, '?action=unread;board=', $board['id'], '.0">';
And Replace With:
Quote
            <td ' , !empty($board['children']) ? 'rowspan="2"' : '' , ' class="windowbg" width="6%" align="center" valign="top">';
            //If the board is in $redirect, don't link the image.
            if(!in_array($board['id'], $redirect))
               echo '<a href="', $scripturl, '?action=unread;board=', $board['id'], '.0">';

Replace boards with whatever boards you want to be redirection boards. So if you want boards id 5 and 6 then it would be "array(5, 6)".

You can actually have images in place of the text also

Don't mean to be a downer, but I'd imagine that allowing HTML in thread text will probably be viewed as a bug by the dev team and eventually go away. Maybe they'll put in a toggle option for it, maybe not.

The best and most permanent solution, next to a redirection feature being directly implemented in the core, is to have a mod to supply the needed function.

Not trying to say you shouldn't use it, just saying that if you do, be prepared to adapt to it going away.

You've always been able to use HTML in board titles and descriptions. It's a lot safer than allowing HTML in posts because the admin has complete control over who has access to editing board descriptions, so there's less of a chance that it could be abused.

Also, the next version of this mod will include a click counter and the ability to open the redirection board in a new window. I am putting the finishing touches on the upgraded versions of the theme stuff and still have some testing to do, but if all goes well, the mod should be out either tomorrow or early next week.

Will it work with 1.1?
