Well that didnt work as expected. There should be a link to the file in the error message, can you click it to access the file directly and tell me what it says please?

Hmmmm.  The link brings up a blank page.  ??

Can you please confirm you're uploading in Binary, and not ASCII?


Most FTP clients have a setting for this. FileZilla has a "transfer" tab which changes it :).

Hi Jade,

Thanks for this nice mod. Seems like it should be a default feature!

Two questions:

1) Will it work with 2.0 RC1.2? I'm starting with this version.

2) How about an option to your [Replies] and [Unread] buttons to the menu that is to the right of the 'go up' 'go down' functions

so the menu bar [Mark Read] [Notify] [New Topic] [Post new poll] would become:

[Replies] [Unread] [Mark Read] [Notify] [New Topic] [Post new poll] 

or maybe better yet, place them right next to the 'go up' and 'go down' feature links.

This will allow it easy to find new post for users without having to press 'go up' and then scroll up a bit more to see the main menu to access these very useful buttons, saving mouse clicks and a lot of needless scolling.

What do you think? Thanks!


Jade Elizabeth

I think all menus should scroll with you.

On my forum AC, I have another menu on the bottom of the forum cause we tired of scrolling up too. On my other site, I'm developing a fixed menu ;D.

I could probably see about including the buttons in another menu :).

Thanks, My users use the "Show unread posts since the last visit" a lot. They must be lazy as they complain of having to repeatedly clicking 'Go UP' and then, having to scroll up even further to find the "Show unread posts..", of course with your mod, they would still have to scroll up a bit to find the main menu, so they would still complain!  ::)

I'll keep an eye on this to see if you come up with anything. Thanks for your consideration and for your useful mod.

Yes, this is a great mod, along with your Shadow People theme.  Do you have plans to upgrade them to 2.0 RC2 ?

Kimmen

I could really use this mod, as i have also deleted the original text/link from my theme. I use SMF 2 RC2, would be nice to have a update for it  :)

Guy's honestly I DO plan to update this mod and the theme. I'm really really ill at the moment and can barely stay awake and or focused for 30 minutes. I went to the ER twice last week because of it.

I feel really guilty cause I can't update it all :(. It's pretty simple to update, and the buttons themselves shouldnt need changing for RC2. The theme does need to be re-written though. I use the theme on one of my sites and as you can see I havent upgraded it for the same reason.

I'll do it as soon as I can, promise :).

It should most definitely work with 1.1.11.

I'll be updating this mod HOPEFULLY today. I got a lot on as usual, but at least I'm not sick anymore :D.

i just tested this on SMF 1.1.11 and installed both files and non of them worked, the installation went fine but i cannot see any unread / replies buttons on the nav bar.

any fix?  cause this feature is great! couldn't use my old forum without the unread button :)

Elizabeth, I came here to ask something but all I can say is, get better first, then comes everything else. Hope you get better soon, then we can see about an update :)

Try CTR + F5. If it doesnt display after that ensure that your cache is cleared. If it still doesnt work I need to know what your language type is :).

So you feel better? :)

Lemme try it with 2.0RC3...


Hmm... I get:

Execute Modification   ./Themes/default/index.template.php   Test failed
1.   Replace   ./Themes/default/index.template.php   Test failed

How do you get more info?? I get nothing apart from that, not even the link to the file...
