Hi,

i'm working on a hierarchical structure for phpBB2. It will something like the well known sub-forums other forums have, but greater. It is nearly finished for beta testing.

At this moment i need one to translate the german readme into a english one. I neither have time nor good enough knowledge of the english language.

And theres another thing i'm in need of. In the demo forum i'm using a quickdrawn image for Forums with inferior forums. Someone out there should be able to draw a better image to replace this dummy. It should be in the style of subSilver to merge with it.

You can find a demo over at http://www.neodoomer.de/forum/ and i will announce a beta just after i have the readme translated.

Greetings,
Martin

You can download this mod at http://neodoomer.de/download/programmie ... rchies.zip.

Hi,

the download you mentioned is the download of this mod. I just wanted to wait for a translation of the readme to answer already asked questions for english people testing it.

I updated the download a few minutes ago because i fixed a bug in there. After that i tested the new download, it is just fine. Don't know if the last was corrupt, this i tested is not.

Greets,
Martin

Hi there,

over at phpbb.de i get many replys and a lot of feedback. But here it seems nobody is interested in testing, translating and so on. Is it really like that?

If so, then i can use my spare free time for better things. :-/

Greetings,
Martin

Just installed it myself. Works Great.

Should Be Made Beta or Final As Far As I'm Concerned.

There Was A Bit of German In The Forum Admin Though
Where It Says Create New Forum & Create New Category

Everything Else Is Awesome

Took Me About 2 Hours Even.. To Install.

Ran Into No Problems At All

Good Job. Great Mod.

Here's A Demo of It On My Website View Working Demo

IVe been waiting patiently for a beta of this mod but in the end Ive thrown caution to the wind and installed it.

So far it seems to be working great..though I'm not sure if this is a problem or not..all my sub categoriesf/forums icons constantly remain on the "New" Icon each time I click on something else.

So I can click read all forums, the icons will reset to normal, I then click inside a forum, click out of it and all the sub forums have gone back to the "New" icon.

Anyone else have this problem?

Currently the included sql commands you need to create the extra fields/tables uses phpbb_ rather then phpbb2_ which is more then likely what most people have in there database. So simply edit the code to reflect this.

Ok firstly did you Alter and Create the tables needed for this mod? The commands are stored in a file called heirarchie.sql.

The first command for example is as follows:

Code: Select all

ALTER TABLE phpbb_categories 
ADD parent_forum_id SMALLINT(5) UNSIGNED DEFAULT '0' NOT NULL, 
ADD cat_hier_level TINYINT UNSIGNED DEFAULT '0' NOT NULL;
Did you run these SQL queries, if you havent that will cause problems for you. If you have then edit the fields and tables from phpbb_ to phpbb2_ as thats the most common name for the tables phpbb2 creates.
