About an hour I didn't have a private message body, message body, and I couldn't see some parts of my forum.
Some members said that they was afraid what happened. :) )))

Great joke. :) ))

You have to take into consideration the different timezones, because where I'm at it's still April 1st. 
No Pm's for support please!

PHP had a mod out today that gave access to the forums admin panel.
When you clicked on a link in admin, it gave you the Aprils Fool.

Maybe something to incorporate for next year. :)

i am referring to my own forum where this mod is installed.
my forum's time is already april 2 and this mod is still working.
because as far as i understand it, it will work for april 1 - right?

uhm, wait, does this mod follow only 1 timezone?
i thought it will only work for april 1 of our very own timezone......

Okey, as April fools is over now (for most people i guess) I'm gonig to reviele what it did:

At random, when you reply to a topic, you are redirected to a page saying that you've destroyed the forum. After 5 seconds it redirects to "April Fools!!! :D :D :D" and then back to the forum.
It sets a cookie lasting 24 hours to make sure it only happens once per user.

Now my little joke: It follows the servertime instead of the forumtime meaning that some may see it several hours before/after april 1. ;)

SgtMic

Good job NAS. Look forward to more of these for different day this year. Hint, hint.

AHA! so that's the reason why it it still showing up around april 2  :P
and showed up later the day of april 1 - i thought the mod isn't working so i made another april fools' thread.

but later on, my members also told me about this mod (i saw it too), some of my members thought they did something wrong to their pc and/or they were infected by malware LOL LOL

great mod, nas! thanks :)

I second that - There's not a lot of code in there - I the author doesn't support it any more can anyone here upgrade it? 

Arantor

Did anyone actually try version emulating 2.0 RC1? It should actually work.

vaulter

What do I need to change in the package info file to do that?  (Sorry, never done any modding).  I'll give it a go :)

Arantor

Nothing, you do it from the admin panel.

Admin > Packages > Browse Packages > advanced (in the lower right corner)

vaulter

Cool I never noticed that before - Thanks  8)

It installed fine so I'm guessing it will work.  Do I have to leave it in that emulation mode until I'm done with the mod or can I revert it now it's installed?

Arantor

Revert once it's installed, then put it back to uninstall. It's only an override for the version check in the package manager but leaving it at 2.0 RC1 will break other mods you try and install.

vaulter

Thanks!  That also solved my problem of a couple of other mods I have not being updated  8)

Just installed this mod on 2.0.1 with no errors, got a bit to wait but hope it works when it should :)
