I think it was just some language thing, though... I'll just have to cange the MOD instructions so EM can update other langs....

Update: I am very close to having a functional Admin Panel that will take all languages installed, extract the lang variables for Sticky, Announcement, Special, etc. and display them in the admin panel. You can then edit them through the Admin Panel and viewforum.php would display the edited name. All that is left is making the extraction/display work correctly and then have the edited version display on viewforum.php. Expect Version 1.1.0 [Non-Beta] soon!

OK, the extraction works, and it looks beautiful! ;) It picks up any language that has a lang_main.php file in a folder that starts with lang_. Again, expect it very soon! :D

Updated to Version 1.1.1
Be sure to read all above updates.

If you are using phpBB Version 2.0.4, this version of the MOD will not completely install correctly. Template variables were changed between versions, so please use version 1.1.0 if you are still using phpBB Version 2.0.4.

Problems:

Doesn't show up at all when making a new topic, just the check box
Doesn't show up in the Control Panel for who's allowed to use it.


Wondering:

Is it possible to make it show under the normal posts?

Reason being, I'm making mine say [Tutorial] and I have a lot; I dont want people to have to search far and wide to find the posts.

Right now it should show up as "Special" in both posting and the Permissions page of the Admin Panel.

Right now it should be just like a Sticky and stay at the top of the first page of the forum.

Ok, so it supposed to show up in post but it DOESN'T is waht I'm saying. So like I asked in the other thread, what file outputs the name to the post page so I can recheck it/fix it.

In Viewforum.php is this correct?

Code: Select all

#
#-----[ FIND ]------------------------------------------
#
	'L_STICKY' => $lang['Post_Sticky'], 
#
#-----[ AFTER, ADD ]------------------------------------------
#
// Begin New Post Type MOD
	'L_SPECIAL' => $lang['Post_Sticky'], 
// End New Post Type MOD
They're both Post_Sticky :?

Nope, it should be $lang['Post_Special'], but that won't matter in the next version because it'll actually show the name assigned in the Admin Panel.

Welp, whatever is going on. I got it to work. Perfectly. EVERYTHING shows up now, and works fine.

I'm just an idiot when it comes to phpBB. Sorry if I sounded rude before. I just tried going through it way too fast without double checking right away.

Thanx for this tutorial. I just changed what the Pre-tag was. I dont care if the check box says 'Special', Moderators and I are the only ones who can make it that way anyhow.

Thanx a lot for this tut. It rox :D

Well, the most recent version is still in development, but there are two screen shots that are linked out of the first post. Not sure how old there are, but they should at least display the user view. I believe one is the Admin Panel, also...

EDIT: I just looked at the pictures. The Admin Panel pic is outdated and the user-view doesn't show any customization, but it does show what the default looks like. I'll have to remember to put up newer screen shots when I release the next version.
