Wew so fast replies I am working and didn't see them.

So basically he wants to see the changes log...

No, what I mean is…
   
GlobalTopics_v1.0.0.zip
GlobalTopics_v1.0.1.zip
GlobalTopics_v1.0.2.zip

or

GlobalTopics_v1.0.0.zip
GlobalTopics_v1.0.1a.zip
GlobalTopics_v1.0.1b.zip

etc.

It's just an observation, but I've noticed a lot of people are not doing that and are just overwriting the same file and all of the previous versions are gone :(
As regards this yes but dude seeing each edit would have been even more useful as you would have been able to verify it directly from the code itself ;)



Yes because experience teaches us that users invariably just click the first link on the list, which is usually the old one.
If someone wants to be a dumbass he will be despite your efforts to tell him not to be :P And I learnt this from my ex-gf.

I would love to know how come you don't have the old version... since the zip file should be in your Packages folder, or failing that, something useful should be in Packages/backups which should include a backup before any mod installation/uninstallation.
Me too. I usually have a mess in my download folder and don't delete mods packages after several days of testing ;)

That requires major rewriting of the software in question and that's been attempted at least 3 times over the last 5 years and not happened yet.
Major overwriting of what? I didn't get that. You were meaning the radio buttons list of the mod itself or..?

I still do not understand why you don't have the mods you installed in the packages folder on your site.
Again me too.

It's so powerful that on this post and even in the two PMs you sent me,you still answered my question very quickly and you're apologizing for the delay. You're the #1 support I've probably ever encountered man, so much respect for that. Thank you, and get better soon.

I'll keep this in my siggy for a while just to remind me that someone appreciated what I did while others didn't.

There's been at least three campaigns to revamp the entire mod site over the last 5 years, that still hasn't happened.

Be sure to set the permissions properly ;) (the membergroup must have the permission to make a topic global) if that doesn't work try to provide margarett more details about it since you didn't provide anything useful actually. (useful=smf version, mods list, custom theme link if you are using one, errors in error log)

There is no option there, actually. You first create the topic, then you enter it again and in the lower buttons you'll find the option to make it global ;)

Just noticed that global topics that are locked, don't show as locked.

In other words, they actually get locked but the "lock" doesn't show on the message index.

Yes, there is just one icon for global topics... It would require multiple icons to be available, and I suck at graphics :P

Does SMF have an PSD file for the orginal icons they made for the topic icons somewhere, ill be happy to make them then for your mod?

No, seeing how they were made as GIFs years and years ago. You could make one out of the images as they currently are now though if you wanted to try it.

Not a problem. Just didn't know if it was maybe something that was over looked.

I use the Astonished theme and installed this but I can't seem to make this mod work. I already installed it with the latest version.

Help please.

I installed that theme here and the MOD seems to work fine...
Are you sure you selected the theme when installing the MOD?

Look at attached images.

I didn't notice that I have to select a theme when installing it? Do I have to uninstall it?

It is on top by default. Check the first 2 images of my previous post ;)
If it's not working for you, then please printscreen the behavior you're having.

When I set a topic global, I can only see the board where the topic was posted.

In each other board, when I try to access it I get the following error:

Code: [Select]

An Error Has Occurred!
