modify search form

Post by bestel » Fri Mar 28, 2008 10:25 pm

Hi everyone.

A friend of mine asked me to help him with his forum.

He wanted members to be able to declare wich sport they practise, and to search the oher members who practice one or several sports.

What I've done first, is to change the mod Gender, to make it show a dropdown list to propose some sports to the members (I've only change the displayed labels).

Now, my problem is to change the search form, to allow search by sport by selecting on (or several) check boxes.

Could some one tell me how to do that ?

Thanks ;)

Hi, since you are looking for help with some coding the best place to post in the MOD Writers forum. You don't have to be writing a "MOD" (code modification) for publication, just writing some code related to phpBB in some way. Moving your topic now, best of luck with your project.

IIRC, the gender mod uses integers to delimit between none, male and female. If all you did was change the wording you would have, I am guessing, three options. You could modify the memberlist sorting to account for this.
