finally got the chance to test it on my board and it seems to work great.

a future version may have the ability to change the font of the quotes but right now its just set as the default one.

Hello,

We see that you've posted your MOD's contents in your topic starter. Please instead offer your MOD as a textfile download (uploading your MOD's install textfile to a server and giving a direct link, with no registration restrictions), rather than posting the MOD's contents in your post, as you have done.

Thank you for your cooperation,
The phpBB MOD Team

BETA version now works as far as i can tell. (works fine on my board)

changed some stuff and added a lot of options

for some reason, it wont let you change the values of the bold and italic (although you manually can through the database) but im working on a fix.

it will work fine except for changing the bold and italic.

now would be the right time for any testers since i want to make sure i included all the correct information in the .mod file.

since ive been changing a lot of stuff, i might have just changed the files and forgot to update the .mod file. im 98% sure that ive updated everything.

EDIT::

apparently its still not sending the quotes to the database and its only retrieving them.

im working on the fix...again... :roll:

ok ive finally got it to work perfectly on my board.

i did some major changes so that theres just an entirely new ACP page

feel free to test it out and see how it works for you

EDIT: due to a request by the original requester, im going to work on adding a drop down box for font changes.

still works currently though, just doesnt have this option yet.

thanks. im really close to finishing the changeable fonts (ive just been away for a while) but i cant test it since my host is undergoing maintenance and i dont have ftp access. when i get a chance to test it, ill release the newest version and if a few people are able to test it and it works fine, ill go ahead and make it a release candidate and submit it to the database.

I've been playing around with this today and found out two things. First of all, there's a way of getting this MOD passed the first stage of easyMOD installation (Something that was initially bringing up errors.) First I moved the 'admin', 'includes' and 'templates' directories into a 'root' folder. Then I took these lines at the beginning of the installation instructions;

Code: Select all

admin/admin_random_quotes.php
templates/subSilver/admin/random_quotes.tpl
includes/functions_quotes.php
and replaced them with;

Code: Select all

copy root/admin/admin_random_quotes.php to admin/admin_random_quotes.php
copy root/templates/subSilver/admin/random_quotes.tpl to templates/subSilver/random_quotes.tpl
copy root/includes/functions_quotes.php to includes/functions_quotes.php
Then you're able to run it through easyMOD without any trouble, except for the second thing I noticed. A small segment of the SQL command seems to bring up an error in easyMOD;
1 Warning(s) reported by the SQL Parser
Non-portable syntax option(s) "TYPE = MYISAM", ignored, statement: 1, table: "phpbb_quotes"


Is this an issue? EasyMOD leaves out this segment and instead runs only this part of the opening command;
CREATE TABLE phpbb_quotes (
quotes_name VARCHAR(255) NOT NULL,
quotes_value LONGTEXT NOT NULL
);


Anyway, glad to hear that the custom font is coming along. I have a TestBoard setup that I've been using for skinning etc. and I'd be happy to use that for testing of this MOD. So sign me up and let me know when you wanna give it a shot. :wink:
