Logo Rotator

Created by DoctorMalboro.




Function:
It allows you to rotate the logo of your forum in default (curve) theme and it's variations.




How to make it work?
Go to Admin - Configuration - Modification Settings - Miscellaneous and check the Enable Logo Rotator option. Then, start filling the Logo Images option with the images (it can be external and internal images, example: myforum/forum/images/logo1.jpg or ubuntu.com/forum/images/logo1.jpg). Save the options and see the image rotator working ;)




FAQ


  • What size should the images have?
    It would be appropriate to be the same as the default SMF (curve) theme. My idea of an appropriate size would be 256x34. It depends on the theme you use.
  • How many images can i put?
    I recommend using your own host for your images, but if it's a free one, use some external host (ex. tinypic, imgur, photobucket, etc.)
  • I don't see any changes... why is that?
  • It doesn't seem to work in my theme... What can i do?
    Try using The Manual Installation of Mods.
  • It's impossible to adapt it... Why? :(
    I'm not a magician... if you can't adapt it, just post the name of the theme and the url of this. I will try to adapt it, but i won't promise you anything.
    If the theme is premium, ask support in the site or person you bought it from ;)




Thanks

I think that you should replace this line (in modification.xml):
$txt['logo_img'] = 'Logo Images.<br /><div style="smalltext">Please, separate images with a coma (,).</div>';
with:
$txt['logo_img'] = 'Logo Images.<div class="smalltext">Please, separate images with a coma (,).</div>';

And... in package-info.xml, this line:
<modification reverse="true">install.xml</modification>
with:
<modification reverse="true">modification.xml</modification>

Wow... didn't notice about the uninstall... thanks. About the other line, it's simply because i think it needs a little bit more of space, so i put a break.

Hi there... and great mod.
I have been trying to get this to work with a theme that I helped Trax put together called Redemption.

I'm not a whiz at the coding thing just do a lot of copy and pasting..... can sometimes figure stuff out. ::)

anyways the manual installation asks to find in the index.template.php
<div id="top_section">
<h1 class="forumtitle">
<a href="', $scripturl, '">', empty($context['header_logo_url_html_safe']) ? $context['forum_name'] : '<img src="' . $context['header_logo_url_html_safe'] . '" alt="' . $context['forum_name'] . '" />', '</a>
</h1>';


But it is not there.
This is the closest area I can find to where that line may have been at one point. Correct me if I'm wrong ( as noted earlier...not a whiz).
function template_body_above()
{
global $context, $settings, $options, $scripturl, $txt, $modSettings;

echo !empty($settings['forum_width']) ? '
<div id="wrapper" style="width: ' . $settings['forum_width'] . '">' : '', '
<div id="header">
  <div id="head-l">
<div id="head-r">
  <div id="userarea" class="smalltext">';
if ($context['user']['is_logged'])
{
if (!empty($context['user']['avatar']))
  echo '
<div id="my-avatar" class="clearfix">', $context['user']['avatar']['image'], '</div>';
echo '
<ul class="reset">
<li><b>', $txt['hello_member'], ' ', $context['user']['name'], '</b></li>';
  echo '
<li><a href="', $scripturl, '?action=unread">', $txt['unread_since_visit'], '</a></li>
<li><a href="', $scripturl, '?action=unreadreplies">', $txt['show_unread_replies'], '</a></li>
  <li>', $context['current_time'],'</li>
</ul>';
}


anyhoo, if anyone can shed some light on this that'd be great.

Cheers

Attach the whole index.template.php file so i can check it...

DoctorMalboro

Try with this one i'll attach you. The size of the images you'll have to figure out by yourself, it varies in every theme...

</h1>';


I can't find this. :(

What theme is your attached file from? It states it is 2.0RC3, but I just compared it to an RC3 default index.template.php, and it isn't default.

Hey Doc, thanks for this.... i forgot all about it and completely missed it while checking replies to my posts.

Not working in 2.0.10.
Tried to install and it said not compatible with this version of SMF!
Pity.

Shambles

It installs fine on 2.0.10, providing you emulate to 2.0 RC5

In my case I had to tweak one line in index.template.php, but otherwise it's good to go.

Topman

What is "emulate to 2.0 RC5"?

What one line of code did you change to make it work in 2.0.10.

A "Change this"

"to this"

In index.template.php  would be helpful.

You've been around long enough to have read up on things like this... :P

Any reported failure to install will be accompanied by an indication of what caused it, implicitly suggesting the solution (including file edits you may need to make).

OK done that, looks like it is installed on emulate 2.0 RC5
When I re set the emulate to 2.0.10 the LogoRotator Mod on "Browse packages"  doesnt indicate either instal/uninstal in the column but it does have a green dot!

If I leave the emulate as 2.0 RC5 it appears to work on the home (/index.php) page (but only the Home page) , when I switch back rest to latest version of SMF it doesn't work and only my original main banner is on the home page.

I have edited the index.css file fro full width banner as on this thread.
http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=523994.msg3709468#msg3709468

The Parse for 2.0.10 says:
"Sorry, but this modification does not appear to be compatible with the selected version."

Yes I have been around a long time but I am still learning this and its getting harder!
Any ideas?

What line did you tweak? and what did you change Shambles?

Some text to allow the package installer to find what it was looking for. If you get an error during the installation the package manager will show you what it was looking for in that file... same as during any other mod install.
