I've looked and looked and can't find something obvious.  How do I share a subaccount?  I have made an account, I want to share it with one other person, but can't for the life of me figure it out.

Everything else works except for the drop down switcher but I've read the whole thread so I see the fix and I'll get around to putting it in eventually.

I don't believe it works that way.
Perhaps it would have been better if I'd simply never bothered. Y'all clearly would be less unhappy that way.

RustyBarnacle

Oh, I thought it did.  I thought that was what the whole (un)sharable thing was for.

Arantor

Don't think so. This mod works by creating actual new accounts and tying them to a parent. I think, though it's been a while, that it's to do with who can see that it's a subaccount. (Though I could be wrong.)

Certainly the description doesn't mention it.

RustyBarnacle

Cool, thanks, I guess I misread.

Actually, this is do-able.  From the manage subaccounts section, as the person that currently "owns" the subaccount, choose "Make (un)shareable."

As the person that's then adding the subaccount, click "Create / Link."  Enter the name and password of the account you want to link.  If it's set shareable and the password is correct, you and its current owner will be able to access it, the same as if it was your own normal subaccount.

RustyBarnacle

DOH!  Of course.  I had the buttons backwards but that makes a lot more sense.  Thanks!

Indeed! And you can share an account between several people, not just one other. We have a "group Admin" account for "site" postings, which is joined to all the team members (currently 3, was 4). It is very useful!

What specifically isn't working?  Is it not installing, are you not seeing account selection dropdown, can you not add a sub account, what?

I am working on the same site as Babs.  This is what we've tried;

Went to Browse Packages, selected Advanced, emulate SMF 1.0.1
Downloaded Sub Account Mod
Attempted to install (from the page that comes up after download.
Error message received, stating that the package was not compatible with version of SMF


Other things we've tried:
Download Sub Account Mod
Emulate version 1.0.1
Went to Browse Packages - Package is there with no option to install or uninstall
Deleted Mod

Revert
Download Sub Account Mod
Emulate version 1.0.1
Went to Browse Packages - Package is there with no option to install or uninstall
Deleted Mod

I am thinking we are emulating the wrong version, but I haven't found which mod we are supposed to emulate.

Thank you in advance for your interest in our problem

You are correct; you're emulating the wrong version. You want to emulate 2.0 RC2 or, if you use the Update Here you need to emulate to 2.0 RC3 in order to get the mod to work.

Have to manually install the mod into the index.template.php of the theme.

babsbatgirlfan

Okay I need to manually install the sub-account mod into the template?? That sounds to hard lol. think I will deal with it how it is lol. its a minor issue that bugs me, if I try anything manually I think itll end up bad haha.

Babs -- Stick this in a Portal PHP Block. It will NOT work on the default theme (due to the code already being installed on the theme itself), but it will work on any other theme, and means you don't have to do any edits. It creates a dropdown option within the block.

global $context, $settings, $options, $txt, $user_info, $scripturl;


$context['subaccount_dropdown'] = '';
if (!empty($user_info['subaccounts']))
{
$context['subaccount_dropdown'] = '
<form style="display: inline; margin-left: 1em;" class="smalltext" action="' . $scripturl . '?action=switchsubaccount" method="post" name="subaccount_drop" id="subaccount_drop" enctype="multipart/form-data">
<select name="subaccount" size="1" onchange="document.subaccount_drop.submit()">
<option selected="selected">' . $txt['change_subaccount'] . '</option>';
foreach($user_info['subaccounts'] as $id => $subaccount)
$context['subaccount_dropdown'] .= '
<option value="' . $id . '">' . $subaccount['name'] . '</option>';
$context['subaccount_dropdown'] .= '
</select>
<input type="hidden" name="' . $context['session_var'] . '" value="' . $context['session_id'] . '" />
</form>';
}
echo $context['subaccount_dropdown'];
