The same way any mod is installed.

Via the forums package Manager.

It works perfectly with SMF 2.0.4


Is there anyway to change the mod into rows instead of column?
In case, I forget to say.  I am using 2.0.2


Noticed that when "Display small board icon next to child board" option is 'on' that gives validation error due to not closed img tag. Everything works just fine, but still if you do not want HTML validation errors open rc2-curve.xml (before mod's install) and replace on 2 places this code:

<img src="', $settings['images_url'], '/', ($child['new'] ? 'on' : 'off'), '.png" width="12" height="12" alt="">

With this one:

<img src="', $settings['images_url'], '/', ($child['new'] ? 'on' : 'off'), '.png" width="12" height="12" alt="" />

If you have it installed do the above replacement in BoardIndex.template.php and MessageIndex.template.php (at one place on each of them).

BTW I like a lot this mod, thanks!


I am running a forum with childboards 1.4 we have some new themes and the mod does not work. So i wanted to reinstall it (well even update it to version 1.4.1). But i can not uninstall it :-(

I get the message that there is no uninstall program so i can not uninstall it.

Anyone had this issue? I am running the latest version of SMF. 2.0.5


Follow this http://wiki.simplemachines.org/smf/How_can_I_install_a_mod_that_doesn%27t_work_in_my_SMF_version
and change your forum version to 2.0.3 or lower (whichever works). After that you should be able to uninstall and install again the mod. IIRC the only difference between 1.4 and 1.4.1 is that the latter supports up to 2.0.4, but since you are with 2.0.5 you will have to use emulation anyway, so you can leave the 1.4.


For me, it works well on the old forum. I have no problem

Thank you  :D

I even used this emulation in the passed. I kinda forgot about it  :-[

It worked  :D


I tried tweaking a few things, but didn't have any luck.

Is there any way to indicate that a child of a child board has new posts?

For example:
Other Games
--> FPS Games
--> --> Battlefield 3

If I put a new post in the Battlefield 3 forum, there's no indicator unless the user manually decides to visit the FPS Games forum.
The FPS Games forum, being a tidy child of Other Games, has an indicator, but it only displays if there are new posts in "FPS Games".  Is there any way to get it to use on2.png in the correct circumstance here?

End Goal - User posts in BF3 channel, and the little icon next to "FPS Games" in the tidy board section of Other Games, turns bronze.



SMF does not consider the case of child of a child in any circumstances, whether this mod is installed or not.


i've read that this works for 2.0.4... trying to install on 2.0.6 which is pretty much the same thing (?) and getting an error...
"The package you are trying to download or install is either corrupt or not compatible with this version of SMF."

any suggestions? i really kind of like it...


smf 2.0.6 + a Lot of mods...
all I really want to hear is "Yes Ma'am"...


Excellent mod, please update for 2.0.6 plz  ;D

how to make it work with custom board icon  :-X



A small suggestion to support themes having multiple colour styles & different board icons for each style.

In BoardIndex.template.php & MessageIndex.template.php, please add $context['theme_variant_url'] in the next release. Thanks. :)

echo '<img src="', $settings['images_url'], '/', ($child['new'] ? 'on' : 'off'), '.png" width="12" height="12" alt=""> ';

echo '<img src="', $settings['images_url'], '/', $context['theme_variant_url'], '' , ($child['new'] ? 'on' : 'off'), '.png" width="12" height="12" alt=""> ';


Tengo un problema, instalé el mod manualmente con el parse de la versión 2.0.4 y tengo la versión 2.0.6 en mi foro:

Desde el index el mod hace bien su trabajo de mostrar en columnas, pero cuando entro a un sub-foro no me parecen todos los sub-foros sólo 1

Aquí si os fijáis hay 2 sub-foros:

Ahora cuando me dispongo entrar al apartado "Noticias e Información" sólo me aparece 1 sub-foro de 2 que tengo:

¿Cuál es el problema?, puse todo tal y cómo en el parse para la 2.0.4
Hice las modificaciones del BoardIndex.template.php y en MessageIndex.template.php en el theme que uso que se llama Future.


I'm sorry, I don't understand the problem.


This example is from the photo 1:
Index, so good

In the index are all subforums, but when I enter the forum where those subforums are only shown me one:

This example is photo 2:


When I go to "News SMF" forum appears just 1 subforum me, and actually there are 4
