Code: Select all

if ( !function_exists('htmlspecialchars_decode') )
{
   function htmlspecialchars_decode($text)
   {
       return strtr($text, array_flip(get_html_translation_table(HTML_SPECIALCHARS)));
   }
}



in my forum it works fine...

A new feature you should add would be file cache, that way they are fetched faster.

Id also like to see this more customizable such as bg color, font, font size and so on. I know it can be changed from the code, but I mean like from the ACP

bgcolor its only customizable by adding new images... font is easy, font size also... but if the name are big than the space, it cames smaller

Looks good!

Is it cache-enabled? Because if a high-traffic forum uses this, it would kill the CPU.

Great otherwise!

Edit: Didn't see that other post asking this! :P

Just as a random tidbit, the script only supports up to 95 characters. After that, you get an error message (probably because the font has reached its minimum size at that point).

Right, that's why I said it wasn't all that important. People don't always use the MODs exactly as the author wrote them. I added that as just a notice for people looking to use your code for other purposes.

This is a great mod, well done!

The only issue we have had with it is members with the "&" symbol in their name. As I run a parenting forum, I have a few members with usernames such as "MumtoKate&Tom" etc.

Instead of their full username showing up, it only displays the part of their name before the "&" comes up.

Would there be any way to fix this without the members all having to change their usernames?

Thanks in advance :D
