If I had to rate this on a scale of 1 - 10 of coolness I would give it an 8.
Lucky me, what we've got here is a 1-5 scale of usefulness!
I can't seem to get this to work. I've got Admins can Use a Disabled Board mod. Is there a conflict with this mod?
I'm assuming you were referring to this one
. There's no conflict, just a mere lack of compatibility.
This has actually been discussed in the other MOD's topic, but since nobody let me know, I've been totally unaware of this issue until now. Thanks for bringing it to my attention! A quick look at the MOD in question revealed a version compatible with another Disabled Board Message MOD (if I would only care to search before writing my own...
). So I made it work (hopefully) with this one (does this make me a co-author?..) and dubbed it v1.0.3. I also cleaned up my MOD's code and put it all together in a new beta:
Please try it out and tell me if it works for you.
If you're using an old version of the MOD (1.2.0 or earlier), use the upgrade script first.
You're supposed to install the Disabled Board Message MOD first, and then upgrade in order to allow admins to use a disabled board (the patch in the contrib directory). annab
, this won't work for you out-of-the-box, since you've already got the other MOD installed. Please contact me if you can't figure it out.
...have it show a banner or suchwise at the top saying that the forum is still disabled so that one wouldn't forget to turn it back on...
The patch should do, although it didn't show the banner on my test board. Please try it out and let me know.
I made a mod similar to this but it will let admins still be able to navigate the forum while the board is disabled.
I suggest that you learn from other people's mistakes. Try using this one.
Changed to v1.3.1 (full with an upgrade script).
