Yep, great mod mate, I'll be using it for most projects :)

I'm guessing making your 'No unsolicited PMs, thank you' text into a flashing gif, or font-size 32pt wouldn't help any lol
Those be the pitfalls when you're famous ;)

Do NOT give admin and/or ftp details to just anybody, see if they are trust worthy first!!  Do your homework ;)

Great to hear :)

I've tried all kinds of variations, from red bold text, to that, to a big image that I thought was clever but no-one got the joke.

Infamous more like!

Nah, it's fine. Why should mod topics be specifically about problems and solutions? I like a bit of sociability in my topics :D

I like this :) It makes the board index a lot longer to scroll down if you have a lot of child boards bu it also makes the child boards a lot easier to see, so I think the members will like and hopefully be able to find things easier.  Nice.

Hey, this is better than I had thought it would be. I would have installed it sooner if I had realised.

Works a treat, many thanks.  8)

nice mod but i can suggest you some idea:

The font size of child board title must be small
The part where are wrote the child board in main must be separate by some table

look my site for example

From the difficult the hardening of the man you can see

Thanks for the suggestions but I'm not planning on changing ANYTHING in this mod except future versions. I'll help anyone who wants to customise it (and to be honest, that's kind of the point of the extra CSS file) but I'm not going to change a thing in this mod.

Most awesome sub forum style ever, thanks dude!

Came across an issue. I am wanting to use the option to "Display small board icon next to child board", however the images are appearing like this (this is IE):



So I went and looked to see if those images are actually in the images folders on all my themes and what I determined was that your mod is asking it to pull "on.png" and "off.png" however all those images on all my themes are gifs not pngs. I also took a look at my default theme to see if they pulled there, and nothing at all shows up on it:



I dont get anything with Opera either (and is the actual browser I use).

Where do I need to change the code so that it pulls on.gif and off.gif instead of png's?


Thanks :)

I actually fixed this yesterday for 2.0 RC1.2 users - if you uninstall the mod and grab the updated version (which does have proper 2.0 RC1.2 support) it has that fixed.

There's several places it has to be changed, both in BoardIndex.template.php and MessageIndex.template.php.

its not giving me the option to uninstall it. I even changed the advanced to 2.0 again and it didnt fix it.

Am I gonna have to uninstall this entire thing "manually"?

Arantor

If you put in 2.0 RC2 in the advanced, it should allow you to uninstall.

It doesnt. That screenshot I provided was after I changed the advanced settings. Here is a wider one showing that its set to 2.0

Nevermind.. I figured out what it was.. I was putting RC2.0 and it has to be RC2. You guys make this WAY harder than it should be...lol. SMF needs to find ONE version.. and stick with it.  :-\

Arantor

Use "SMF 2.0 RC2" not "SMF 2.0 RC2.0"

i edited my last post because I just figured that out

Arantor

To be honest, there wasn't really supposed to be a 1-1 or 1.2 from RC1. But they were sufficiently big security issues, with RC2 still a long time away, that we kind of had to.

Versions ideally should be 2.0 RC1, 2.0 RC2 etc.

ok well I just uninstalled it and now my entire forum is messed up. This is crazy. I am getting this on all my custom themes

Fatal error: Call to undefined function tidyBoards() in /home/****/public_html/Sources/Load.php(1990) : eval()'d code on line 148


and all of them except one use the default files for the mod.


with each theme the line code is different.

This is on another theme

Fatal error: Call to undefined function tidyBoards() in /home/****/public_html/Sources/Load.php(1990) : eval()'d code on line 292

Argh! Another occurrance of the bug where install to custom themes doesn't always uninstall on custom themes. :(

Reinstall the mod but don't select any custom themes, that will make everything work again.

Then we can make the .png -> .gif edits.

k i reinstalled it and it seems to be working again on all my themes.

Confused about what you just said tho about not uninstalling from custom themes. All my themes (except one) use the default themes files to run this mod. Why wouldnt it uninstall properly on the other themes?

Another ?... if I leave this version on, and merely make manual changes to change those image names, whats gonna happen if I ever want to uninstall this mod? Im guessin I will have a major mess on my hands because it will all have to be uninstalled manually at that point, right?

Arantor

None of your themes have their own BoardIndex.template.php or MessageIndex.template.php files (other than default/) ? Then uninstall should remove it correctly, but if you have custom themes, it won't always tidy up correctly, meaning that even if you were to ask it to uninstall, it won't uninstall correctly anyway. :(
