Re: keep unread flags

This is all a good way to make a simple subject very convoluted. I have two boards, one with the original style of flags, the other with the modified flags. Neither system works very well for all users. The situation is - I, as the board admin, want to see notification of all the posts which I haven...

coding errors in fresh install

I've been running pages from my forum thru CSE HTML Validator and am finding large numbers of HTML errors. I set up another forum, a fresh 2.0.22 install with subSilver template, to see which errors are inherent and which might be in the template, the mods, or my own changes. I am finding errors in ...

Re: Limited Edit Time

My previous question was, does this mod, as tested and released , prevent users from deleting their posts entirely in the same way that it prevents them from editing posts? The problem, obviously, is that some people have this weird mania for deleting their old posts. That leaves big holes in thread...

That's not what I want. I want deletions to be handled like edits - users can do either but only up to a point.

Re: Limited Edit Time

Does this mod also prevent users from deleting their posts after the edit time limit has passed?

Re: keep unread flags

My users are already complaining that the "View posts since last visit" function has disappeared, replaced by "View unread posts". Can they both remain functional?

Re: keep unread flags

By the way, if you use easymod, it will do all that for you. I didn't use easymod. I made all the changes manually, mainly because mine is no longer a standard installation and I try to keep close track of the details of further mods, especially in the style files as I don't use subSilver . Of cour...

Re: search interval

ok, I just checked it. copy the subSilver/admin/board_config_body.tpl and the subSilver/admin/confirm_body.tpl to the aqua folder and you should be fine. We're still talking at cross-purposes here. I have substantially modified the aqua template my boards use. However the problem doesn't seem to ha...

try this:

copy subSilver/profile_add_body.tpl,
subSilver/confirm_body.tpl
subSilver/admin/confirm_body.tpl
subSilver/admin/board_config_body.tpl

to your style folders.
Aqua isn't missing any of these files.

Re: keep unread flags

The "files to edit" list doesn't mention the database. However I see there is an SQL mod. How is that done? Do I just paste the text ALTER TABLE phpbb_users ADD user_unread_topics TEXT; into the Query window Run SQL query/queries on server localhost: in phpMyAdmin and run it from there?

Re: search interval

Nope, don't have that in my control panel.

The board is new - I set it up about two months ago - but the style is Aqua, which is apparently not well supported or particularly up-to-date.

I have just pasted the missing code into board_config_body.tpl and now it is working properly. Thanks, all.

Re: search interval

Yes, "flood interval" is the setting I set down to 5 seconds. That fixed the message posting problem. However my board still won't let searches be done at anything like 5 second intervals.

search interval

Where is the control which sets this - "You cannot make another search so soon after your last; please try again in a short while." I found the setting which controls posting intervals, and changed it from the default to a much lower (and much less annoying) value. But I haven't found the ...
