This has been fixed in the installer. No need for that edit.

Hello I installed the Mod successfully :)
I just have a little problem :
I tested trying to send a message as a guest (at the moment I choosed only guests and email for administrator), the page is ok, I can choose the reason, I choosed a reason, but the subject of the email I received shows :
Aucun sujet n’a été indiqué (No subject indicated)
and the text of the email gives the date in english
"Monday 14-Dec-09 18:10:06 GMT"
On the other hand the text of the email indicates the reason.

Did I made some mistakes in the language files ?

I have an other question :
how can I make a link towards this contact page from the page used for the registration in order to replace the email address of the administrator.

That is beyond the scope of this mod.

Concerning the date, that is dependant on the locale of your server. If your server is set for english the date will be sent in english. The subject does show in the email as well depending on what is set in the "subject" on the form.

Hello,
I mean the subject of the email, the subject when the email arrive and is not open.
I added in the file contact.txt :
Subject: Contact Administrator
and now it's ok.

About the date I do not understand, because all the dates of messages and others in my forum
are in french. Monday is "Lundi".
For the link, I mean on this page :
http://www.phpbb.com/community/ucp.php?mode=register

where it is written If you are visually impaired or cannot otherwise read this code please contact the Board Administrator.
Instead of the email address I would like the link to the Contact page.
Sorry for my bad english :)

Hello again,
for the link, on language/xx/common.php and ucp.php, I did :

Code: Select all

If you are visually impaired or cannot otherwise read this code please contact <a href= "./contact.php">the administrator</a>'
I do not know if the code is good, but it works :)
I did not find the solution for the date in the received messages.

The date as generated from the mod is dependent on the locale of where your server is as it is using the gmstrftime function of php. The date on your forum is contingent upon the language selected by your user.
