Thanks for a cracking mod; most of my members really seem to like it. However, there are a vocal few who find some peoples' choices garish and want it turned off. Is there any way to add an option whereby members who dislike the colours can select not to see them, in the UCP or anything?

Regards,

Ben.
The only way to do that, is to assign GROUP permissions in your ACP and adjust from there.

How can I make this so if a user hasn't chosen a color, the skin's default is used? Transparent is just not useful at all.

First up, many thanks for the reply. =]

I created a new open usergroup for the users who want to see the colours, and tried to set their permissions accordingly. However, in the Advanced section of the Group Permissions you can only set the ability to use the feature altogether, or not. When I turned it on for this group all the other usergroups could still see the changing colours.

Am I doing it wrong? Is there something I'm missing? Very sorry to bother you over this.

Regards,

Ben.

OK I see what your saying now... not what I thought you meant... but anyways, no, there really is no way for you to prevent others from seeing the color changes, sorry.

Ahh, it's okay. =] I had to uninstall the mod anyway. Lately a couple of members had been experiencing problems with editting their profile. Kept coming up with a message saying WRONG_DATA. According to another site experiencing similar trouble it was this mod that was causing the problems, so I removed it.

Thanks very much for all your efforts anyway. =]

Regards,

Ben.

I have version 3.0.2 installed. In my functions file this line is not found:

Code: Select all

		return $_profile_cache[$cache_key][$mode];
	}

	global $phpbb_root_path, $phpEx, $user, $auth;
therefore there is no way to add this edit:

Code: Select all

 $db,
Is there another way to add this mod to my version or do I have to upgrade? I really haven't upgraded because I have many mods installed and it looked like it was going to cause problems.

I've got a big problem with this mod at the moment, it's preventing people from changing anything on the UCP\Profile\Edit profile screen.

You can see the page, but if you press submit it comes up with a SQL error.

Code: Select all

General Error
SQL ERROR [ mysqli ]

Unknown column 'ALLOWED_STYLE' in 'field list' [1054]

An SQL error occurred while fetching this page. Please contact the Board Administrator if this problem persists.
I'm not sure what this means, can anyone help?

Is it possible to make random colors visible from this mod?

For example if my user ID is "Admin" .. it displays it like : Admin

Thanks.

That sounds like something didn't get installed right, I'd recommend checking ucp_profile.php to make sure the edits are right. Also, you ran the installer right? Otherwise, does this happen to everyone? Just people who have permission to use colored name, or just people who don't?

That's not the goal of this mod. The goal is to replicate the colored name feature of IGN boards.

This is not yet compatable with 3.0.5, I'm in the process of updating it to be so.

Thanks. Visited the thread to ask it as it was giving errors after phpbb 3.0.5 update. Removed the codes for the Mod from the 4 edited files to disable it at the moment. Was not able to find all the edits in the includes/functions_content.php file. The Update might have removed those.

Please let me know if I need to do anything else to disable the MOD.

Thanks again.

Hey guys, thanks a million for this mod. The installation was smooth, and I LOVE the idea!
However, i've encountered a small glitch - at UCP when the user tried to change the color, and submit it, but no changes was done. :|
I've searched throughout this forum but have tried all possible solutions without success.

am using phpbb 3.0.5, firefox. If you need any codes from me, please feel free to ask.

Please refer to my screenshot, any kind help will be greatly appreciated!
