Well, it is not *that* hard to install, actually
I would say the Attachment MOD is three times more complicated to install by hand. The "installation simplicity" is mainly the reason why I haven't published it yet. I am currently reviewing this MOD (for the 2nd time, btw) for having minimal number of injection points and minimal number of IN-LINE edits. I know that there will be people installing this by hand (opposed to EasyMOD, which does it in seconds) and it is very easy to make a mistake this way. So I am holding it off for maybe another week or two to make it as foolproof as possible.
So, hopefully, it is not hard to install after all. What is going to be hard is to make sure it is compatible with other MODs that modify viewforum, viewtopic and posting behaviour.
I suppose that it would be nice to have an option for notify_on_all_new_posts and only notify if needs approval options. Use would depend on the nature of the board - sometimes we are trying to protect against spam and sometimes making sure we are responsive to legitimate posts.
Okay, you have convinced me
I am going to implement this feature.
phpBB should definitely have this mod standard.
It does (with the new phpBB3). Nothing to do with me or my MOD by the way but it is confirmed that approval functionality is built in (known as moderator queue). I haven't yet checked how it looks or behaves. I figure, it will be a while before phpBB3 becomes as widespread as the current version so I think my MOD is still worth publishing.
I currently have notify_on_all_new_posts (new and reply) mod installed while waiting for this mod.
Could you provide a link to it for Gregminimum who was asking for it?
Any idea how this mod will interact with the extreme styles mod ? (I only care about being able to run php within templates)
At the moment I am not testing it with any other MOD except the Attachment MOD. After I publish the first beta and gather the initial feedback we can have a look at the Extreme Styles MOD compatibility.
Thank you, thank you, thank you for working on this mod. Where is the donate button?
Well, it is free
The only catch is that I cannot be pushed with the release dates!
