I do like it and it works well

The QUOTES panel appears right at the top of the index body (if you initiate index from ACP)

my only thought is that a choice in ACP for index position e.g. high, medium , low

meaning whereabouts on the index page the panel would go, high = where it is now, medium, maybe just below the forums listing and low would be right down the bottom with stats

but this is a very nice EXT - I appreciate the permissions system which allows you to choose which group can add quotes, by default this is reg users but you can easily change it :P another good one dmzx :mrgreen:

when a user adds a new quote the Admin sees a handy message across the top of the site
Information: There's one new quote available, which is waiting for being released! Click here to go to your ACP.
you click the line, you go to ACP you choose to enable the quote - if YES the quote becomes visible

if NO it doesn't

THEN you see a handy message across the top of the site
Information: There's one new quote available, which is waiting for being released! Click here to go to your ACP.
oooo someone else has added a quote, that was quick!

You go to ACP, it is the same quote you chose to say NO to 3 minutes ago :|

you go back to ACP and say NO again because that is not a very good quote

THEN you see a handy message across the top of the site :geek:
Information: There's one new quote available, which is waiting for being released! Click here to go to your ACP.
oh right, it's that same quote again huh? the only way around it is to DELETE that quote or it will forever be nagging at you to accept it

I thought users could see a list of their quotes, including the ones that weren't accepted?

with this, the admin has to Delete the quotes just to stop the handy message reminding you all the time that there is a quote that hasn't been enabled :x

Actually if a quote is not going to be approved then it probably should be deleted.
I only see edit or delete for new quotes. Click edit to enable it or click delete to delete it.
You seem to be causing that issue.

This is a great [DEV] no doubt about it, a busy board will love this

so, did you see that 3.1.9. ABSOLUTION is out? it's a pretty amazing style for 3.1. but this EXT does not fare well in it sadly

there are some [DIV] problems , the display is just chucked right across from one side to the other, no margins at all

need a custom body, so anyone else using this also installing Absolution? :D

It seems to work food for me:

Just a side note - do you have "Max-width switch" extension installed? Keeping the switch set to "Yes" in UCP for this extension made the style to aligned to left (of browser). Setting it to "No", made it to look good. But then it was the alignment of the board and not just the "Quotes" block.
Thanks,

good point Anuj, definitely hoping that Absolution is upgraded soon

Anyway my board is fantastic with this ext, many members have seized with interest the real community aspect of this feature, most have their quotes approved, very few submit quotes that are not up to spec

the thing is, the system is intuitive enough to allow users to simply submit their prospective quotes with no instructions from me, that is worth a lot

Anuj did you manage a fix for the Absolution theme?

This is a great EXT, works well in 3.2 too but it can't cope with Absolution, the styling needs some work

It would be great, if you use a awesome-font icon in your extension for better compatibilty with 3.2 styles.
