[Beta] Subforums Plus

Post by D¡cky »

MOD Title: Subforums Plus
MOD Description: Subforums Plus adds infinite levels of subforums to your phpBB board.
MOD Version: 0.0.6a

Demo: Demo link
Download: Download Link

The installation and conversion files are in MODx format. Included are premodified files if you are installing on a virgin phpBB forum and also an install file in EasyMOD format.

A convertor is available to convert Simple Subforums to Subforums Plus
Download: Download Link


Subforums Plus FAQ
  • I installed Subforums Plus and now my board is disabled
    • You haven't run the install program.
    • Make sure you have copied all the files from the MOD files root directory to your phpBB root directory. You should have in the phpBB root directory an install directory with the install-sf.php file inside.
    • Once the files have been copied, you should be prompted to run install-sf.php when you visit your forum index page.
    • Click the link to run the file and be sure to delete the install directory when done.
  • I don't see an option in the Admin Panel to create a subforum.
    • There is no change to the Admin Panel. Go to Forum Management in the Admin Panel as normal.
    • Create a forum as you usually do.
    • After clicking the Create Forum button, you will now be on the General Forum Settings page.
    • In the Attached To dropdown box, select a forum to attach the newly created forum to and you will now have a subforum.

CH has a lot of extra OPTIONS not related to Sub-Forums. Also it changes so much that it makes many mods nearly/totally impossible to make compatible with it.

Simple SubForums requires eXtremeStyles and doesn't have MULT-level Sub-Forums.

SF Plus doesn't require eXtremeStyles and doesn't break the functionality of most index/viewforum mods. Also it's more likely that you'll be able to make semi-incompatible mods work much easier with this one.

That is odd. It works on my demo forum (linked in the first post). Test Forum 2 has three levels with a post in the last level.

What is the link to your forum? PM if you don't want it public.

Bug in functions_sf.php

Post by ziege »

Hi,

there is a little bug in the functions_sf.php which does not allow the use of other language files (the path is not correct because of missing variables):

-----[ OPEN ]------------------------------------------------
includes/functions_sf.php
-----[ FIND ]------------------------------------------------
function _sf_lang(&$main_lang)
{
-----[ AFTER, ADD ]------------------------------------------
global $phpbb_root_path, $board_config, $phpEx;
-----[ SAVE/CLOSE FILE ]--------------------------------

Bye,
Christoph
