Should you have the now unofficial NewsBlock Mod v1.3.1 installed and want to use this mod (the same in features but different code) I would recommend uninstalling it and installing this one.

If there is big demand for change instructions from the v1.3.1 of the News Block to this one, I will write them...

lol, you know where the idea came from and it is a very good one if I might say so kudos to you :P

Sorry, I just did not want to scrap all the work I have put into moving this to a different level.

i will have to look at the code and get back to you. If possible and if I find the time to do it, It would be released it as an add-on but this will not happen soon as the future features list is somewhat long.

Please note though that the News Block no longer has ACP Panel Smilies (maybe in version 1.0.5?) so you would have to ask the author dannyscats over here whether he can include it in his version.

No worries.
I'll be adding most the features you added to mine, so I didnt really see the point in you doing this but still.

I had a feeling you were going to say that...
Hope you will find some of my code useful :wink:

Hello,

Please change your MODs version number as outlined in MOD Development forum rules, section 2. Your MOD as being in development requires a development version number as stated in the phpBB versioning scheme.

For example if your MOD is currently displaying v1.0.0, you can change it to 0.1.0 or 1.1.0, depending on your feelings of it's development status. Even minor version numbers (y of x.y.z) are reserved for release versions. If you believe your MOD is of a quality that deserves a release version, please do not hesitate to submit your MOD to the phpBB.com MODDB (MOD release database) for validation pending release.

Thank you,
The phpBB MOD Team

Hi,
thanks for letting me know.

I have, in the meantime, submitted this to the MODDB so I suppose this better gets locked. If it gets denied I will ask for it to be unlocked again if that is ok.

As a user of this MOD, I've switched to Lefty's version on account that you didn't even respond to user's posts nor give any kind of update or news for quite a few months.

Being vindictive or sarcsatic doesn't add to credibility, you're the one who disappeared and left quite a few people hanging. If some users decided to switch, can't say I blame them for doing so.

As the old saying goes; you make your bed, you sleep in it.
