Link to Mod

This mod will add an unlimited number of custom actions, configurable in Features and Options. There are 3 types, HTML, BBC, and PHP. They can be accesed by going to http://www.yoursite.com/smf/index.php?action=action name. Each action has an unlimited number of sub-actions, which can be accessed by going to http://www.yoursite.com/smf/index.php?action=action name;sa=sub-action name.


Enhancement for it:
If you wish to make it work with the link tree, you may find useful these instructions DanCarroll has been nice to share:
Making Link Tree work with Custom Action Mod
To-do lists are for deferral. The more things you write down the later they're done... until you have 100s of lists of things you don't do.

I installed it becuase it is the only way you can see if it is something you like or not

I didn't know that it would be so hard for " winrules  " to read my question and give me a straight answer

This isnt a complaint as the FORUM was FREE  and the MODS that I have installed were FREE and as we all know ....

Beggers cant complain about the generosity of others , but being a newbie to this kind of thing , I didnt know that you have to ask a question about 6 times and in 3 or 4 different formats before it will get answered .............

There are no help screens or instructions with these MODS so how do you know if they are doing what there supposed to do if you dont know what to type into the text boxes and data input areas to make them work.............

I may sound like i am whinning or angry , but I am not . Id just like to know what I am supposed to do with a Mod so I can determine if it is working or if it is of any walue to me for what I am doing

Garry

Wow  I am pretty impressed with the examples  as they do many things I have been trying to do

Would there be an example of the code that was put into the box in the actual MOD to show how it is done
