Post Board Select

This modification adds a select box to the post form in which you can select the board that you want to post. It gives ability to the user for posting to a board that they are not already in. Of course it check the needed permissions and after the post is made it redirects back to the board in which the post was made. It just appears while posting a new topic.

Version 1.1
o Mod take over by Norv.
o Rewrite for compatibility with SMF 2.0 RC 1-1.

Thanks.
Is the board from where you are posting the default?  I mean if you are in a board called "General", will be "General" the default or it is necessary to choose any time from which board do you want to post?

It selects the board that user is in as default. If user wants to change it, selects a different board.

I see. Unfortunately I do not read the topics in that forum. Nearly all my mod ideas came up from the Turkish Language Support forum. They want so much features. :D

One of the best and simplest mod I ever use. And recommend, I really think SMF 2.0 should bring this included!

Thanks for this mod!

Possible bug.  I have a default board setup to post in for Calendar events.  When I go to the calendar and click Post Event, Post In (from Calendar) shows the right board, but this mod provides its expected drop down with the first board on the board index in the default position.  I created a post and it over rode the default board I set up in Calendar.

This is nothing major or urgent as I don't imagine people will be posting events from the calendar.  Most will go to the board and link to the calendar after the post.  Just wanted to let you know.  :)

Confirmed bug. I will fix it with an update. ;)

I love this mod, my only drawback I have with my members is they don't like have the two drop down menus :)

Post In: 

Then

Board name:

All my boards have different other boards attached.

Is there a way, in extremely simple terms, to only have the 'Category' only show in the top /Post In part and all the Boards attached to that Category show only in the Board Name. It seems my members are a little slow on the uptake at times.

Most of my members post directly from the Calendar, as I have not as yet found a Modification that will give me a 'Post Event' in each section that immediately links directly to the Calendar. I don't need that type of 'Post Event' button in use in all of my boards but most of them.

Besides at the moment, and probably for a long time yet, cannot get my head around the Manual Installation of the Modifications, so only have been using Modifications that appear in the Package Manager via the Browse Packages. I am so scared of crashing my forum  ::)


[SiNaN]

Ummm, sorry but I need that more simple. Maybe some screen shots too.

Oh dear I'm sorry [SiNaN] firstly I forgot to say I am using SMF 1.1.5 Babylon Theme

Screenshots  :-[ have no idea how  :'(

Maybe I will try a walk through;

Clicking on the selected date from the Calendar, brings up the Post Event Window.

Then we have:

Event Title
Date (etc)
Post In: Here it lists all of my boards, where I would like to have only the names of each Category in this part
Board name: Here it lists all of my boards which is what I don't want or would not like to touch

Then it just follows as per normal;
Subject:
Message icon:
etc

I would like to only have the Categories in the 'Post in' drop down menu.

It appears to have confused my members having what they feel is double selections to pick from :)

My board is also only very new and have only a handful of members at the moment, but am looking at making the forum easy for them to work with, not forgetting me also wanting it to be easy to work with. Mind you the SMF is the best forum I have ever used as a member, and this is my very first attempt at running a forum. :)

[SiNaN]

So you need a modification just for Calendar event posting, right?

Post In: Here it lists all of my boards, where I would like to have only the names of each Category in this part

Okay, just category names here. But for what? What are you going to do with the category name?

Board name: Here it lists all of my boards which is what I don't want or would not like to touch

Here should we list all the boards, or just the ones in the selected category above?

Oh I would loveee a mod for the post event directly linking to the calendar, but that is probably not feasible.

With this I would like & love to remove all the boards from the Post In: and just have Categories, like Internet Competitions



Here is a list of one of my boards:

Category:

Internet Competitions 

Followed by what I guess you could call them sub-categories:

Online Competitions **Easy to Enter**
Online Competitions **Easy Enter**

Online Competitions **Words or Less**
Online Competitions requiring a words or less answer

Online **No set Closing Date Competitions**
Online competitions without closing dates

Online Competitions **Enter Daily**
Competitions you can enter daily

Online Competitions **Enter Weekly**
Online competitions enter weekly

Online Competitions **Enter Monthly**
Competitions, ongoing monthly, or enter monthly
