are you using the default theme?   If not, did you install the code changes into your custom theme?

im using a custom theme.  when you say code changes to custom theme....are you referring to the errors that you might receive during an install?  i didnt receive any errors so installed as regular (ie/ no changing the code)

i'm using the ClearSky theme.  should i just copy over the MessageIndex.php file?

no, probably not.

The reason there is  a separate file with that name in your custom theme is because that is a file designed specifically for the custom theme...

So, you should do a manual parse of the mod (link on the mod download page) and manually make the changes to your custom theme file(s)

.. or just uninstall then reinstall the mod, remembering to tick the box(es) for your custom theme during (re)installation.

I love this mod on my 1.1.x board. But I upgraded with a fresh install to a 2.0.6 board. I finally got the mod to install, but there is no preview of the posts. I did change the setting for the number of characters to display, so that isn't the issue. Any ideas?

Still works great on 2.0.8 with a manual install, thanks for the mod! :)

Also, if anyone was wondering the same, you add the addMessagePreview_settings.php file to your theme folder. (The parser doesn't say where to put it).

Any simple way to add "..." to the ending of the message when it is cut off?

Can this be made to work with SMF 2.0.10? I tried installing it using Package Manager and got: "The package you are trying to download or install is either corrupt or not compatible with this version of SMF."

Thanks,

I emulated 2.0 to install this on 2.0.14.   However, I cannot get it to work, even after changing character count.

All it did to my forum is increase the font size on my admin pages (ouch, my eyes) and I'm left with this snippet at the top of the page: "$txt['hover_length'] = 'Length of the message preview on hover'; $txt['hover_characters'] = 'characters';"

If anybody can figure out how to fix this, it'll be forever appreciated.  Everyone wants this feature on my forum!

The mod failed to install correctly.
Edit modifications.english.php and move the ?> to the end of the file

Thank you for your help.

The theme I am currently using as a default doesn't have that file.  Is this something I can/should add?

Looking at the file, it appears that the ?> is already at the end.  Is there something else I need to be checking, or something I'm missing?

Quote
$txt['footerads_text'] = '(paste Adsense code)';
$txt['toppostads_enable'] = 'Enable AdSense at the top of a thread';
$txt['toppostads_text'] = '(paste Adsense code)';
$txt['ad_text'] = 'Advertisement</br>';
