It's so powerful that on this post and even in the two PMs you sent me,you still answered my question very quickly and you're apologizing for the delay. You're the #1 support I've probably ever encountered man, so much respect for that. Thank you, and get better soon.

I'll keep this in my siggy for a while just to remind me that someone appreciated what I did while others didn't.

I assume the changes regarding Bookmarks in the profile supports this Bookmarks mod, right?

Yes, that's a custom snippet (and furtherly fixed by me) originally made by br360 in the relative support thread :)

Uploaded v1.4 - October 15th, 2014
o Added support for the Bookmarks mod.
o Minor Profiles menu changes made, originally done by Ninja ZX-10RR

@♦ Ninja ZX-10RR ♦: Thanks for confirming the mod.  I liked the reorganization of the Profiles menu that you did in Subs-BetterProfileMenu.php, so I integrated the changes into the mod, with a few more changes to make sure that the bookmarks text string is present because trying to use it.  Thank you!

Oh, cool! :D so can I just uninstall it and reinstall it back with the latest version? :D
Very glad that you liked them!

Do note though that the custom snippet is NOT added by default with the my bookmarks mod, it's custom and it needs another piece of code (regarding that other mod) to be edited in order to work like that ;) I reiterated just to be sure :)

Thanks very much for the updates!  I will be giving this a test-drive...

At least TRY to do it before complaining?

I usually do, but when people in the thread are talking about needing to manually uninstall I tread cautiously...  Especially because I have done quite a bit of editing to UP, and needing to reinstall it would be a pain...

I wasn't aware that asking a question was considered complaining around here...

Sure I can! --> http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=182923.msg3753227#msg3753227 this is the custom edit I had done there, and actually looking at the code I can't understand why it doesn't work either. I tried to reinstall the Bookmarks mod but with no luck, the only thing I could do is to just place the custom code back, the snippet you added seems to do absolutely nothing, which is weird to me. ???

We don't serve answers on a golden plate here, at least TRY to do things and if you encounter problems then we are glad to help but if you don't even try to do a thing then the message that we (and I mean "we" as a community) get is "I don't bother trying to install this, will it work? I won't provide any details of my forum configuration but I expect you to have mind-reading mod installed and to already know if it will work or not, and with which consequences."
Hope it clears things out a little bit dude ;)

Btw I really discourage you use your real email as a nickname because if some spammer bot manages to crawl it you will VERY much likely get seriously spammed in your inbox. And I don't think you would like it. The correct way to let other people know about your email address would be putting it in your signature in a similar way: mario[dot]rossi[at]youremailprovider[dot]com or something like that ;)

First off, thanks very much dougiefresh for the quick update!  I have UP mod installed and it is working great with your mod.  I did a little tweaking to adjust the sort order.

I also added the bookmarks mod, and for some reason the 'if' statement you implemented doesn't work.  It was pretty simple to move the array definition out of the if statement, getting it to show up.  The Ultimate Profile bit works fine though, so I'm pretty certain the issue is regarding (isset($txt['bookmarks']) is not returning a '1' or 'true'...

Ninja, chill out then go back and read my original post.  Notice how I specifically stated: 'I'm nervous to test installing this because I don't want to end up manually uninstalling anything...', with regards to the post prior in which another member ended up with a mess he had to uninstall from this being incompatible with another mod. 

I provided enough information about my forum to be relevant to my questions, which were quickly and precisely answered politely and without rudeness.  I'm not sure where you are getting the 'mind-reading' or 'crazy expectations' bit from, lay off the drama, I asked about compatibility with a very commonly used mod. 

Obviously dougiefresh wasn't so offended, he quickly implemented support for the ultimate profile mod and verified the mod was only hook-based.  I am not sure what the prior posts were about regarding manually uninstalling edits.

Anyways, Thanks for the suggestion on removing my email...

Meh... I don't bother replying. Dougie you got any updates by chance? I ended up in editing it and putting the bookmarks array back in again XD also this gave me the insane idea to mess around with the menu and now I'm seriously freaking out with subs.php changing the order of the arrays every 5 minutes on average :rofl:

Uploaded v1.5 - October 17th, 2014
o Fixed stupid array mistake in Subs-BetterProfileMenu.php code....
o Removes Bookmarks tab from main menu and places it in the Profile menu....



@Ninja: Yeah, I figured it out.  Turns out SMF doesn't like arrays within arrays for sub-buttons  :P  Found the bug when I outputted the array and looked at it in my browser's web developer mode.... I also implemented removal of the original Bookmarks menu from the menu bar....  I wonder if I should add an option to do this, though.....

@thelastlokean:  You're welcome!  I'm glad to hear that the UP modification works for ya!  I think the prior posts about manual install were about a conflict between two mods.  It was determined that my mod was not "at fault" for the conflict/errors....

As always


It worked :D I will have a look at what's the difference between the files because I backed it up before installing the latest version, it works like a charm ^^
About the my bookmarks option idk either... To me like this is just fine, it was already fine but I wanted to help you hunting the bug until you finally squashed it :D and with this update my to-do list here on sm.org gets even smaller. Thanks for the fix dougie it's always appreciated never forget it ;)

@Ninja:  Thanks for the feedback.

@thelastlokean: The manual uninstall discussion actually had nothing to do with this mod, since the other mod was producing the errors.  It often helps to read the entire thread to answer some of these questions  :P

In case anyone is interested, version 1.0 of this mod was a direct integration into Sources/Subs.php.  I can't speak about v1.1 because I lost my copy.  v1.2 and above is a hook-based mod....

Had an idea and I actually implemented into my forum already, just wanted to share it with you since you have always been very kind to me :D
It is a little bit more complicated than it looks since the strings for the Drafts were already all in use (that's why I have set "draftsninja" as string-name XD) but I will show you my subs-betterprofilemenu.php maybe you will like it even more :D if not well I just share it, maybe someone is interested into it ;) I will add that edit to the relative support thread too (EDIT: just posted --> http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=246151.msg3757966#msg3757966). It is an interesting edit to me.
I will show you a screenshot of it, too.
You need to add the string to the relative drafts language file too, though, otherwise it would throw an undefined index and it wouldn't work properly with other languages.
Like this: /languages/drafts.{language}.php
Code: (find) [Select]
?>
Code: (add before) [Select]
$txt['draftsninja'] = 'Drafts';
If you like it feel free to get inspired :) oh besides since there are 2 drafts mods, it's the most recent one.
