It's a bit different in ManageServer.php, which is why it should be in ManageSettings.php.

Yes, you can add it in Help.english.php but it's preferred to keep all language strings in Modifications.english.php generally.
Don’t try to tell me that some power can corrupt a person. You haven’t had enough to know what it’s like.

If you look further up the page you'll see this. Which is why I referred you to that file. It should explain it all.

Quote
/*   Adding options to one of the setting screens isn't hard. Call prepareDBSettingsContext;
   The basic format for a checkbox is:
      array('check', 'nameInModSettingsAndSQL'),

      And for a text box:
      array('text', 'nameInModSettingsAndSQL')
      (NOTE: You have to add an entry for this at the bottom!)

      In these cases, it will look for $txt['nameInModSettingsAndSQL'] as the description,
      and $helptxt['nameInModSettingsAndSQL'] as the help popup description.

   Here's a quick explanation of how to add a new item:

    * A text input box.  For textual values.
   ie.   array('text', 'nameInModSettingsAndSQL', 'OptionalInputBoxWidth'),

    * A text input box.  For numerical values.
   ie.   array('int', 'nameInModSettingsAndSQL', 'OptionalInputBoxWidth'),

    * A text input box.  For floating point values.
   ie.   array('float', 'nameInModSettingsAndSQL', 'OptionalInputBoxWidth'),

    * A large text input box. Used for textual values spanning multiple lines.
   ie.   array('large_text', 'nameInModSettingsAndSQL', 'OptionalNumberOfRows'),

    * A check box.  Either one or zero. (boolean)
   ie.   array('check', 'nameInModSettingsAndSQL'),

    * A selection box.  Used for the selection of something from a list.
   ie.   array('select', 'nameInModSettingsAndSQL', array('valueForSQL' => $txt['displayedValue'])),
   Note that just saying array('first', 'second') will put 0 in the SQL for 'first'.

    * A password input box. Used for passwords, no less!
   ie.   array('password', 'nameInModSettingsAndSQL', 'OptionalInputBoxWidth'),

   * A permission - for picking groups who have a permission.
   ie.   array('permissions', 'manage_groups'),

   * A BBC selection box.
   ie.   array('bbc', 'sig_bbc'),

   For each option:
      type (see above), variable name, size/possible values.
   OR   make type '' for an empty string for a horizontal rule.
   SET   preinput - to put some HTML prior to the input box.
   SET   postinput - to put some HTML following the input box.
   SET   invalid - to mark the data as invalid.
   PLUS   You can override label and help parameters by forcing their keys in the array, for example:
      array('text', 'invalidlabel', 3, 'label' => 'Actual Label') */

If at first you don't succeed, use a bigger hammer. If that fails, read the manual.

It's there, but the SMF Customization Team is still looking it over so that's probably why it's not showing up for you.
It's a big mod with a lot of coding and many things they need to look at.
(ie. many ways to try to make it fail)

Plus Thanksgiving just passed, so it might take them a few days/weeks to approve it (or send it back to me for revisions).

While I'm waiting, I am working on a sister mod that will go well with MyStatus_Updates Mod.

It's usually measured in days, for small mods, maybe a week or more for larger ones (like this). We're looking at it, though, rest assured. It hasn't dropped 'off the radar'.

Given how much work is involved, I doubt many would want to backport this; well over half would have to be rewritten.

No, 1.1.x support is not available, and probably won't be in the future.
Arantor is correct, there would be a lot of code that would need a total re-write in order to back-port this mod.
I am concentrating my efforts on a sister mod (to this one) and don't have the time needed to re-write MyStatus_Updates for 1.1.x

And, seeing as SMF 2 is so great, why bother?

Every time I see the new post on this topic, I check if the mod is public or not! :(

ElectricSquid: sangwe11 is being rheatorical, specifically that since SMF 2 is so good, mod authors wouldn't necessarily want to backport to 1.1. I know I'm not backporting much of my newer stuff to 1.1 now.

For anything that I write, or finish writing when I actually get time to sit down and finish them now (busy with exam revision :() I won't be backporting.

I will welcome anyone that wants to back port for themselves, but I won't let anyone release a backported version as a public one.

<== Anxiously awaiting this mod. It's 1/3 of some new ones I'm tracking that will finally let me do the redesign of my site I have been planning.
