Please describe your problem.
While installing the Welcome on Index Mod as instructed - placing it in index_body.html;
and editing + adding custom contents to it, everything seems to be working fine, except
this problem with RANK display.. it just doesn't show up, no matter what i do. This is the
code i added to the welcome body:

Code: Select all

<!-- IF RANK_TITLE -->{L_RANK}:{RANK_TITLE}<!-- ENDIF -->
But it comes out empty, doesn't even work when i remove the IF term, then it just
displays the {L_RANK} part as in "Rank:" and still no user nor group rank is displayed.

You'd be better off posting your question in a new topic in this MOD's designated support area in the Customisation Database. This will notify the MOD author who will probably be more knowledgable about this own MOD than the rest of this community is. :)

This area can be found here: https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/mod/ ... _2/support

The author of the MOD has not been here in 4 1/2 years, but the users of the MOD may be able to help. As this forum's Description says, theere is no MOD support here.

It's also worth noting that support for 3.0 will finish at the end of this year so rather than trying to add an old MOD to 3.0 you should go for 3.1 and request an extension.
