nice mod.. works very well.. thank you!

is there a possibilty at all to add a function in RC3 similar to msg's where it has a number of how many new replies there actually are?... eg Replies (3)

Jade Elizabeth

That's an AWESOME request!!

Thanks for posting it!!! I'm actually going to look into that because it would REALLY help my forum to have a counter on both tabs.

That's a ******ing fantastic idea if I do say so myself :D. Thanks again!!

Well.... thinking on it..

I could probably put a "new" image or text part on the tab...
Or maybe say how many pages it is...

But I think if I count the replies it might end up slowing forums down, especially large ones. I don't know if it would make a difference to count individual posts or just the topics (so 10 replies in posts vs 2 replies as topics sort of deal) though it would make a huge difference on a forum like this in terms of how huge the tab is (can you imagine seeing like 100,000 replies when you havent logged in in a while?).

If there's someone who's MySQL savy reading this I'd love some input :).

Oya

you'd have to do it based on replies rather than topics and yes it would slow the forum down since youd be loading the unread page again every page

Jade Elizabeth

Why couldnt I base it on topics like the unread page does?

I installed it on my test forum which is SMF 2 RC4. Had to switch on RC3 compatibility before installation and also had to ignore two replaces in one file (index) but it seems to work well. I need to go back and put the 2 replaces I ignored in manually but should be ok.

Would love to see this mod updated for RC4 of course. Its an awesome mod and hopefully it will not disappear. Thanks for making it.

I totally agree. I just installed a new RC5 not thinking about compatiblity. In RC4, where is the RC3 compatibility option? I'd like to see if I can do the same thing, because this is one of my favorite mods. I honestly wish they'd do away with the default ones because they don't function the same. But that's just my preference.

If RC3 compatibility is not available in RC5, is there another way I can make this mod work in my RC5? If not, is there an easy way to roll back to RC3 or 4 without reinstalling?

Also Jade, how are developers funded for these projects? Do you create these mods on your personal time? I would assume donations are welcome? I'd love to see this mod continue its life span

Look at Admin / Packages ... Right had lower corner you will see a link called Advanced. In RC4 and before there is a text field in there where we type in the version we want. In RC5 I heard they changed it to a drop-down but I'm not sure if its in the exact same place. Good luck.

On a related note though, more than likely not all updates / replaces will work depending on how many mods you've got installed in there. Make sure to apply anything missing manually and if you don't have experience doing that perhaps its best to wait for the update from the mod developer.

We're not funded at all unless we ask. If you want to paypal me then my email alundra at jades-world.com will work :D.

And since everyone's asking, I will update tonight or tomorrow, depending on when my headache goes away. I just had my first day at college!! :D

No, it's still a textbox - the 1.1.x version is a dropdown, but is supplied as a mod.
Perhaps it would have been better if I'd simply never bothered. Y'all clearly would be less unhappy that way.

MCK

Thanks for keeping me honest. I must have read this half-witted.

Did you upload the wrong version to uninstall?

3.0.1 on RC5 in RC3 mode

I'm not sure what happened but if you send me your index template I can fix it :). Just paste it into a code box on here :D.

I'll update this hopefully tonight, I totally passed out last night lol.

So I reinstalled it. The only reason I attempted to remove it was because it didn't removed the text versions. This mod IS supposed to removed the text version, right?

I'd prefer to leave it installed, but would also like to get rid of the text in the header. What file is that located in?

Jade Elizabeth

The header text is in the index.template.php file of your theme.


It should remove the text in the 3.0 versions.

Again sorry I'm late, school is taking more out of me than expected :(.

Jade. No need to apologize. I am not going to be pushy for free things. My patience is raised when things are free.

However, see attachment. Again, RC5 in RC3 mode. I also have another board running RC3 with the same results. You can see in the screen shot the text is there, the buttons are there, and I have 3.0.1 installed, and obviously you can see the curve theme.


**Edit - I mis-spoke. I am running in RC5 mode. Hmm. However, I still have an RC3 board running on another site. So that still stands. There was an error when I installed it on RC5. I installed it anyways. When I uninstall, the buttons go away but it doubles the text

Jade Elizabeth

Try uploading the one that only does the buttons, and uninstalling that?
