Not really, i'm afraid.
My MOD will show the rEd bar links in the header of every page that uses the standard phpBB header.
You'd need to do some custom modding to get what you want

Ah okay then. I did a search for 'custom switches' and this thread showed up, so I thought I'd at least ask! Thanks for your reply

I has the same error when uploading the update file and having the same issues as the previous guy. It doesn't save the links when added. Where do I upload the sql.txt file to? Oh yeah, I'm a noob if you couldn't tell. Thanks,

Hey txcoach.
To run the SQL queries manually, you need access to a database editor such as phpmyadmin.
You should be able to find it in your site control panel - if not, ask your host.
Once you have access, it's simplay a case of pasting the contents of the sql.txt file into there and running the command.
Most hosts use phpmyadmin - here is a little tutorial on how to use if if you get stuck.
If you have another editor, i'd either ask your host or check the homepage for the program on how to use it - i'm only familiar with phpmyadmin :)

Hope this helps

thanks again

Hey inthezone, try this -

Open up you template's css file (if you're using subSilver it would be subSilver.css and look for this code -

Code: Select all

a.gen:hover,a.genmed:hover,a.gensmall:hover	{ color: #DD6900; text-decoration: underline; }
Now after that add this code:

Code: Select all

a.genbar { color: #ffffff; text-decoration: none; }
a.genbar:hover { color: #DD6900; text-decoration: underline; }
You can change the hover color to something that matches your forums better.
Now, in overall_header.tpl and overall_footer.tpl look for:

Code: Select all

<span class="genmed"> 
and change it to:

Code: Select all

<span class="genbar"> 
And you should be done :)

simple, you need to add the fonts you wish to use into the css code i posted:

Code: Select all

font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif
so something like this -

Code: Select all

.genbar	{ font-size : 10px; font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif}
You can add colors and other effects in there too.
Best thing to do is have a look on google for CSS ;)

I'm seriously considering using this mod.

Before I go ahead what colour will the bar be once added?

My site is a darkish blue.

http://www.heresy-online.net/index.php

Will it automatically go to the same colour based on the "Cattitle" section in the overall_header.tpl alteration?

One other thing, will this screw up SEO or help it?

The links will be whatever color a standard link is on your forum.
You can easily change this by altering the css as posted above.
This MOD has nothing to do with SEO - it simply adds a few links to the header/footer of your forums
