Fixed - I think. Looking at the code I don't think that has ever worked

Am i right that if i want to create a new faq page, eg. rules page, i have to edit the faq in the way the original mod does like

Code: Select all

add
case 'rules':
		$l_title = $user->lang['RULES_PAGE'];
		$user->add_lang('rules_page', false, true);
	break;
to faq.php

and so on, and then finally have to create a file like help_rules_page.php in language folder ?

If your looking to add a rules page there is a validated extension that will do that with a ACP interface similar to what this extension has for that page. check it out.

Yep, thanks :), but the help_rules_page.php from my old 3.012 version works also for the actual mod, so this saves a lot of copy and paste needed for the Board Rules Ext ;)

I haven't tried it but any file with the name in the format help_xxxxx.php in the language folder would be available but the contents of the file would have to be in the format

Code: Select all

$help = array(
	array(
					0 => '--',
					1 => '7777',
				),	array(
					0 => 'Why do I need to register?',
					1 => 'You may not have to, it is up to the administrator of the board as to whether you need to register in order to post messages. However; registration will give you access to additional features not available to guest users such as definable avatar images, private messaging, emailing of fellow users, usergroup subscription, etc. It only takes a few moments to register so it is recommended you do so.',
					
						),);

Yes this works, and then i use faq.php?mode=rules, so rules/faq/bbcode are looking the same.
