seems we don't either, eh? :roll:

Anyways, this code on template works for me:

Code: Select all

<TABLE class="forumline" cellSpacing="0" cellPadding="3" width="100%" border="0">
<TD class="row2">
<form name="dropDownForm"> 
  <p align="center"> 
  <select name="dropdownmenu" size="1" onChange="goToURL(this.form)">
    <option selected value="">Select theme:
    <option value="portal.php?s=FI%20Subice">FI Subice
    <option value="portal.php?s=FI%20Subsilver%20Shadow">FI Subsilver Sh. 
    <option value="portal.php?s=Hestia">Hestia 
    <option value="portal.php?s=SpacePilot3K">SpacePilot3K 
Maybe you're using theme folder name, not actual theme name?

okay. it works if you use the page_header and constants includes from another version (2.0.10) and the functions file from 2.0.11.

if anyone cares about this mod anymore...

Resetting to the Default Style

At a certain point when I logged out to login with other account, my defalut style became 'smartBlue' when the default is supposed to be 'Coldsteel'... So, I went into ACP and found out that the default is still set to 'Coldsteel' in the configuration menu...
So, basically somehow the setup is still correct, yet the default style is not displayed correctly... I really want the default style set to one to keep the look of the site...
I think there is a simple reason for this.

The MOD remembers the style this way:
If you are logged in, then it remembers the style in the user's profile.
If you are NOT logged in, then it sets a cookie named "phpbb2mysql_style".
I think, that you simply have changed the style once when logged out. So the cookie is set in your browser and the default style in ACP will no longer used.

I think, I should update the MOD description :wink:

How about updating the MOD? :)

First, thank you hugely for doing this MOD. It's just what I need.

All I need is to give people a URL to see various styles. So I only made the changes to functions.php and constants.php, and did not change the templates. Then the style can be specified by &s=1, etc., in the URL.

After they have seen the styles, I want them to be able to reset to the default without teaching them how to delete cookies. :?

So I suggest the following MOD to the MOD. What this does is, if the parameter in the URL is &s=0 then it goes back to the board default style, and either removes the cookie or sets the user's style to the board default, whichever is appropriate. Then everything is back the way it was (except if a registered user had a non-default style selected, they will have to go back and re-select it.)

Code: Select all

#-----[ OPEN ]------------------------------------------ 


#-----[ FIND ]------------------------------------------ 

			$style = urldecode( $HTTP_GET_VARS[STYLE_URL] );

#-----[ AFTER, ADD ]------------------------------------------ 

			$cookietime = 31536000; 
			if ($style == 0) {
				$style = $board_config['default_style'];
				$cookietime = -60000;

#-----[ FIND ]------------------------------------------ 

					setcookie($board_config['cookie_name'] . '_style', $style, time() + 31536000, $board_config['cookie_path'], $board_config['cookie_domain'], $board_config['cookie_secure']);

#-----[ REPLACE WITH ]------------------------------------------ 
					setcookie($board_config['cookie_name'] . '_style', $style, time() + $cookietime, $board_config['cookie_path'], $board_config['cookie_domain'], $board_config['cookie_secure']);

#-----[ SAVE/CLOSE ALL FILES ]------------------------------------------ 
# EoM
Caution: Since I don't have the user interface installed (the changes in page_header.php and overall_header.tpl), I don't know how this will affect that. Probably for that, there should be a "Default" choice in the styles list. Maybe someone else will deal with that. I haven't looked at the user interface but selecting style 0 might be enough.

This is probably a stupid question but how do I move the box to another place on the page? Like on the side or bottom.
