MOD Validated/Released

Notes:
This is a very simple MOD which adds the forum description (originally only seen on index.php) to viewforum.php, just under the forum name.

Well if it didn't work, it wouldn't be here.

well, how about this, it worked using easyMOD on my board. not all do that. and i'm just too lazy to fix things manually. :lol: thought i'd be nice and bump it up so others can see it before it moves to page three and gets lost.

I like this very simple mod. However, the description text looks "off" with the "gen" class. I made mine a "gensmall" span class and made it bold...looks much better. :D

Code: Select all

<span class="gensmall"><b>{FORUM_DESC}</b></span>

Not that it really pertains to this mod, but I added an extra break after the {FORUM_DESC} so all the text wasn't bunched up at the top

Thanks for the simplistic mod, always good to see these :D

Code: Select all

<br /><span class="gensmall"><b>{FORUM_DESC}</b></span><br /><br /><span class="gensmall"><b>{L_MODERATOR}:

Yeah, that looks the best I think. Made mine the same, except I removed the bold this time.

Some people would probably not even submit a "simple" mod like this. Unfortunatly!

Everyone using phpbb should be very happy you did Manipe! I am. It's simply amazing how much this small mod means when it comes to the terms of usability for newbies (and seasoned users). This is one of the most valuable contributions on my extremly modded board.

A lesson to learn: keep even the small "simple" mods coming.

This one should really be in by default. Would perhaps make the admins think about what they wrote in the description in the first place.

This mod make members use the forums more for the reasons that they were meant simply because they get reminded of the forum description close to the new topic button.

This one is so simple I would never have considered it.

Again, I'm glad you did Manipe!
