How to install this MOD for subsilver2

1) Open the orignal install.xml file.

2) Scroll down to the styles/prosilver/mcp_forum.html instruction. Do this step exactly as it is written there, but for styles/subsilver2/mcp_forum.html, of course.

3) The next step, for styles/prosilver/posting_editor.html, is different to the original instructions though. subsilver2 does not have a posting_editor.html, so instead, do the following:

FIND

Code: Select all

value="{SUBJECT}" /></td>
</tr>
ADD AFTER

Code: Select all

<!-- INCLUDE posting_topic_tags.html -->
4) Create a posting_topic_tags.html with the following content and move it into the styles/subsilver2/template folder:

Code: Select all

<!-- IF S_POST_ACTION and S_TOPIC_TAGS -->
<tr>
	<td class="row1" width="22%"><b class="genmed">{L_TOPIC_TAGS}:</b></td>	
	<td class="row2" width="78%"><select class="gensmall" name="topic_tag" id="topic_tag">{S_TOPIC_TAGS_OPTIONS}</select></td>
</tr>
<!-- ENDIF -->

Maybe I'm misleaded about this mod, but could I set two topic tags (SELL - BUY) in some forums, let the topic authors to choose between the two, and then list only the topics with SELL or BUY tags? This would be great for classifieds forums.

No, instead you would create the following three tags...
[SELL]
[BUY]
[SELL - BUY] (is one tag) :)

Yea, it would be nice if the mod had those tags also. What about a [NEED] tag? Or can we just customize are own tags with this mod?

You (as an admin) create your own tags. Perhaps you should both read the first post again :roll:

hmm, looking forward to using this mod until the bug mod is ready, or maybe just stick with this one, we'll see.

Either way, can't wait for the download.

I see, it's exactly what I need :)

Two questions:

- Could we define tags only for specific forums? I would like to set "SELL-BUY" tags for my classifieds forums.
- Could the topics be filtered by tag (see only "SELL" topics, "BUY" topics...)

Thank you!

Last one: could the tag be required for posting? (don't allow to post the topic without choosing a tag).

That would be a pain for users, that their post has to have a tag. What if they dont want to use the tags?

I'm talking about specific forums, not all the board. I'm talking about forums for classified ads.

If you actually read the first post, you'd already know forum specific tags is a planned feature.

Anyhow, I'll definately be using this upon the first stable release. Keep up the good work Highway of Life :)

Not until Beta2 release of this MOD.
Beta1 has the ability to set Global tags.

Hmm... can you expound a bit? give an example, perhaps? -- Are you talking about sorting topics in a forum, or searching a forum for tags?

That could be a feature I add... though probably not until at least Beta3.

Thanks for the support everyone! -- Still working with Richard to clean out the remaining bugs. :)

I'm talking about a menu or links list in viewforum showing all tags (in my example, a menu or links list with SELL - BUY - DONATE - etc). Selecting or clicking on a tag will show a list (just like viewforum, but with "filtered" topics) with the topics containing that tag and no other topics (if I click on "sell", I'd see only the "sell" topics). Finally, a "view all topics" option or link would show the normal viewforum list (all topics) again. This would be really useful!

That could be tricky, but I will do it.

Don’t expect it until Beta3 or after though. ;)
