As per requested many times i was asked if there was any way to increase the character limit of the simple version of this mod "Info Boxes" Could not be done as it only used the phpBB config table.
My two cent: If its be a must, to take config table bcs. of may simplify the mod, just make a config field for a txt file name. Store the so configured filename eg. in root/info_box/info_box.txt. After configure the text from admin in acp, the file will be written by submit and read out and parsed from a little scipt to present it to the users. So you have two flys with one clap: Your config field and the needed more text.

Ahyes, not know that "info Boxes" is unlike "Info Boxes Advanced". I thought it is related to this mod here. So it was just a short thought. By the way: BBCoded text can also be stored in a textfile and read out and can be parsed after reading, so xml is not needed in every case.

What about speed though? I personally don't know if reading from a file would slow things down.

I do know a lot of thought on Vectra's part and my part went into this MOD. I don't mean to sound grouchy as I'm not...it just comes across that way.

There are many more features vectra and I have discussed but vectra wants to wait until validated before moving forward.

I'm not a coder by no means... I can debug like the dickens though. Be patient and I'm positive all suggestions will be tested thoroughly and implemented if vectra finds it feasible.

I went through a lot of messy stuff during the BETA before it was even an RC, but that's what I like to do. The MOD works as described and I can't wait to try out some suggested features I have seen in this thread.

Off the soap box now... :) You have all been great with the suggestions and vectra is happy to hear from you (I say this on his behalf).
