You can leave DB as is. It shouldn't cause any problems.

Is there going to be any update soon?

Maybe I can request that this one goes another level deeper? Like at viewforum.php currently it displays the subforums on top. Then it works like index.php again..

If that cannnot be done, its okay. I don't like CH :D

Hey guyz!

Want to change some optical stuff:

1) How can i can i change the bold style of the subforums into plain text style. Have searched in index.php or index_body.tpl for some

Code: Select all

<b> text </b>
but found nothing but some {catrow. forumros NAME} or so.

2) I've installed the Forum Icon Mod on my board, so you can place small icons before a forum. I also want to have an icon in every subforum too. How to do it ? The only way to see Icons before a forum is in the parent forum (as always) and in the single subforum, if you open it. But in the viewforum.php is no Icon unfortunately.

See also here:

http://www.directupload.net/show/d/475/HjMqzqDN.jpg (Main Index)
...and if i open the forum
http://www.directupload.net/show/d/475/EgYCoaGO.jpg (NO Icons!)
...want to have icons here to!

How to do it ?

3) the last pont: :-)

Want show moderators also in Subforums at the bottom of forumdescription. They're not shown in the subforum list. How to do it ?

Plz plz help!

many greetings Pille :)

I didn't see this in the screenshots, and I don't know if this has been asked already, but can you display which forum (if there are subforums) the last post was posted in? Because in the screenshot, it shows the subforum having a new topic and then it shows a link to the last topic. That's good if there's only one new topic forum. But if two or more or even the parent forum have a subforum, you don't know which one it's in, and it can get confusing. I don't think it would mess up the layout too much, do you think?

Ok folks, i fixed some of the optical problems ;)

1) underline in subforum is not shown any longer :)
2) subforums are now shown in plain text and not in bold-style

But i can't solve the problem with the forum_icons. I hope someone has got an idea to handle this prob :):

1) The forum_icon Mod is installed --> fourm_icons are shown in de the main index. you had to make some changes in your database for that. OK.
(see) http://www.directupload.net/show/d/477/I2ktyZ78.jpg
|
2) If i put a parentforum into another parentforum to make it as a child_forum, the icon is not shown correctly! you can not see the correct icon in the viewforum_body.tpl. The only icon you see is the main_icon from the main index. BUT if you open the subforum, the icon is shown correctly before the forum_name.
(see) http://www.directupload.net/show/d/477/hymZZ5Pi.jpg (the marked icon is wrong, it must be another icon !, the first three icons are correct)
|
3) if i click on the last subforum:

http://www.directupload.net/show/d/477/VuXlTUzV.jpg

--> why is the correct icon shown here but not in the subforumlist ?

Is there a special change in the database necessary ?

Any idea to handle this problem ? Plz help :)

I just applied the Colorize Forum Title MOD to this great mod.

Find on index.php the next

Code: Select all

'sub_name'=>$value['forum_name'],
After add

Code: Select all

'sub_color'=>$value['forum_color'],
Find

Code: Select all

'L_FORUM_IMAGE' => $attached_forums[$k]['sub_alt'],
After add

Code: Select all

'FORUM_COLOR' => ( $attached_forums[$k]['sub_color'] != '' ) ? 'style="color: #'.$attached_forums[$k]['sub_color'].'"' : '',
Now edit your index_body.tpl

Find

Code: Select all

<a class="nav" href="{catrow.forumrow.switch_attached_forums.attached_forums.U_VIEWFORUM}"><img alt="{catrow.forumrow.switch_attached_forums.attached_forums.L_FORUM_IMAGE}" border="0" src="{catrow.forumrow.switch_attached_forums.attached_forums.FORUM_IMAGE}" title="{catrow.forumrow.switch_attached_forums.attached_forums.L_FORUM_IMAGE}" />{catrow.forumrow.switch_attached_forums.attached_forums.FORUM_NAME}</a>
Replace with

Code: Select all

<a class="nav" {catrow.forumrow.switch_attached_forums.attached_forums.FORUM_COLOR} href="{catrow.forumrow.switch_attached_forums.attached_forums.U_VIEWFORUM}"><img alt="{catrow.forumrow.switch_attached_forums.attached_forums.L_FORUM_IMAGE}" border="0" src="{catrow.forumrow.switch_attached_forums.attached_forums.FORUM_IMAGE}" title="{catrow.forumrow.switch_attached_forums.attached_forums.L_FORUM_IMAGE}" />{catrow.forumrow.switch_attached_forums.attached_forums.FORUM_NAME}</a>
Enjoy!

edit: I think I found my answer in the thread. Should have read the whole thing first.

BTW, great mod. This is exactly what I was looking for. :)

Excuse me:

How to install "Improved pseudo sub-forums 1.06" "keep unread flag" at the same time?
Both of them seemed re-defined "$unread_topics"

As I modified the code below, the unread flags in all subforums disabled.
What can i do?

Code: Select all

#
#-----[ FIND ]------------------------------------------------
#
							else
							{
								$unread_topics = false;
								if ( $userdata['session_logged_in'] )
								{
   // Added by Attached Forums MOD

$unread_topics=check_unread($forum_id);

   // END Added by Attached Forums MOD

}

								$folder_image = ( $unread_topics ) ? $images['forum_new'] : $images['forum']; 
								$folder_alt = ( $unread_topics ) ? $lang['New_posts'] : $lang['No_new_posts']; 
							}

#
#-----[ REPLACE WITH ]---------------------------------------- 
#
 						else
						{
							//MOD Keep_Unread_2 * Forum_unread flags set earlier
							$unread_topic = $forum_unreads[$forum_id];
							$folder_image = ( $unread_topic ) ? $images['forum_new'] : $images['forum'];
							$folder_alt = ( $unread_topic ) ? $lang['New_posts'] : $lang['No_new_posts'];
						}

ok, I am pretty new to this, but I can do all the mods, its like most mods. The only part I dont get to this one is the beginning.

"
#
#-----[ SQL ]-------------------------------------------------
#
# If your phpbb table prefix is different, then change it to
# reflect the correct one.
#
#


ALTER TABLE `phpbb_forums` ADD attached_forum_id MEDIUMINT(8) DEFAULT '-1' NOT NULL;"

Everything after that I am fine with. What is this part telling me, and what do I do? I have to do something in myphpadmin? can I not just make the changes and upload them?

any help is much appreciated.

Thanks

Select the appropriate database in phpmyadmin. Then select the SQL tab. Then paste the code in the query windows and hit the first GO button. That's all.

ooo so you mean I dont have to go into the actual forum files, edit them, then FTP them over the old ones the way I usually do?

This method you just said replaces that one right?
