Can I delete the forum area of a theme?
« on: July 22, 2013, 11:00:22 PM »
Is there a possible way to delete the forum area of a theme? I plan on installing and only using the smf gallery mod.

the forum area of a theme ....

so you pretty much want to use smf just for the gallery mod?

Yes, as I have already installed 4 other smf forums.

You would have to hack up the code in boardindex.template and probably several other files...

However, your statement makes no sense...

You hva einstaled 4 other SMF forums?
So what?
What does one foum have to do with the other and what do any of the previous installs have to do with this one?

To let RUNIC know that I have already installed some forums (read his statement) and that this last forum I want to only have a gallery.

If you only want a gallery, why don't you use a gallery software rather than trying to make smf into something it is not supposed to be?


And sorry, but even re-reading Runic's question, your response makes no sense.
Again, what difference does it make if you have installed 4 or 400 forums? For this one you want to, essentially gut it and use only a gallery mod, which is intended as an add-on to the forum software. Instead of doing somethign silly like that, if all you want is a gallery, then use a gallery.

Wondering if you could do that by tinkering with the $actionArray in index.php.

Coppermine, Menalto Gallery2 or any of a dozen others....

Kindred,

I am using godaddy at the present moment, and those two are not an option to install. That's y I asked my question..Godaddy is limited to the "outside world".

Cheesehead, you could download one of them options and install it yourself even on godaddy that should be possible.

Kindred and Runic,

Yea im on the site now, Im assuming that they are smf galleries by the look of things. But in Coppermine, where are the sample galleries, would be nice to know what you will be working with.

my favorite standalone gallery was Menalto Gallery2. It had some killer themes...

I haven't used Coppermine in almost a decade... but when I did use it, it was pretty clean and also supproted theming (plus they use SMF!)
