I installed this MOD and with the AcidTechEx skin it works beautifully.

If I had to rate this on a scale of 1 - 10 of coolness I would give it an 8. Perhaps future ones like this will have the function to allow admins to still view topics and such like the one mod, but also 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.. not that I would know of such things :oops:

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 need to be able to access the board as an admin but want to have customizable messages for my members so I installed your mod after the Admins can Use a Disabled Board.

I made a mod similar to this but it will let admins still be able to navigate the forum while the board is disabled.

Lucky me, what we've got here is a 1-5 scale of usefulness! :)

I'm assuming you were referring to this one. There's no conflict, just a mere lack of compatibility. :lol:

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... :roll: ). 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:

Version 1.3.1.
Please try it out and tell me if it works for you.


Note: If you're using an old version of the MOD (1.2.0 or earlier), use the upgrade script first.
Note: 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.

The patch should do, although it didn't show the banner on my test board. Please try it out and let me know.

I suggest that you learn from other people's mistakes. Try using this one.

Edit: Changed to v1.3.1 (full with an upgrade script).

You're seemingly unfamiliar with MOD installation procedures. If this is the case, you may choose either:
  1. to use EasyMOD (beta)
  2. to use phpMyAdmin to execute SQL queries (may not be available on your hosting service)

Need Help

Post by Solid Strike » Sun Apr 02, 2006 1:29 pm

I don't understand how to do this:

Code: Select all

#
#-----[ SQL ]------------------------------------------ 
#
INSERT INTO phpbb_config (config_name, config_value) VALUES
	('board_disable_text', ''),
	('board_disable_caption', '');
#
Is it something to do with phpmyadmin? Because I don't have that..
