No, because the version numbers are all geared to 2.0 RC2; I never tested it on 2.0 RC1.2 and never wrote it explicitly for it. It's just a happy by-product that the edits should be the same.

If you use the Advanced option in the lower right corner and supply 2.0 RC2 as the version to use it will probably work.

k I did that. When I go to apply it, I get test failed's on these two files:

7.   Execute Modification   ./Themes/core/BoardIndex.template.php   File not found
8.   Execute Modification   ./Themes/core/MessageIndex.template.php   File not found


It should still be ok tho right? (just wanna make sure, I dont want to screw my site up)  :)

o.O I thought I made those edits optional.

It's absolutely fine to proceed if those files are not found. On RC2+, the old default theme is in Themes/core - but on RC1.2 that isn't the case of course.

The mod is working precisely as it should. I can't be responsible for a) browser quirks due to CSS not related to my mod, b) use of 4 columns on boards with long names (which cannot ever actually be fixed without screwing the rest of the layout anyhow), c) you having it set to 3 column (since in the source, the relevant code was showing 33% width)

Closing the img tag and adding alt"" will validate it.
Code: [Select]
<img src="', $settings['images_url'], '/', ($child['new'] ? 'on' : 'off'), '.gif" width="12" height="12" alt="" />

Confirmed for all three supported themes.

Fixed in version 1.1 :D as well as adding 2.0 RC1.2 support :D

People have been doing it for years buddy, it's just great that Arantor found a little time in between his 'record spam post' session(s) to package it ;)

Actually I didn't just package it, this is a fresh build entirely, pushing some of it to Sources so it is easier to install on multiple themes.

As for offline, yeah, means I get less PMs. I'm now in the bracket of 1-5 unsolicited per day, which I'm more than happy with.

Indeed. Actually meant the column display/layout of child/sub boards has been done, not the way you've offered it. ;)

Well, yeah, it has but the previous version didn't offer 4-column (which to be fair isn't useful all the time), nor did it let you configure too much, whether you want the [new] or not, bold or not etc.

To be honest, I mostly did it because people kept asking me where the original mod went, and it seemed easier to just make a brand new one than to either keep explaining why I removed the original mod package, or to try and fix its code.

Earlier in the year I was receiving over 50 a day unsolicited PMs. I don't mind people PMing me when I've asked them to do so, or if it's something specifically useful or interesting (e.g. someone PM'd me recently to throw me a link to a plugin for phpBB I'd expressed interest in, but a prebuilt package that had the plugin preinstalled), but PMing me for support, or to bump a topic, is very likely to be ignored and deleted.
