Hi chadtm80,

I just downloaded the MOD and found this (within 2 minutes):

Code: Select all

INSERT INTO phpbb_config (config_name, config_value) VALUES ('announcement_enable', '1');
INSERT INTO phpbb_config (config_name, config_value) VALUES ('announcement_enable_guests', '1');
INSERT INTO phpbb_config (config_name, config_value) VALUES ('announcement_show', '0');
INSERT INTO phpbb_config (config_name, config_value) VALUES ('announcement_title', 'Site Announcements');
INSERT INTO phpbb_config (config_name, config_value) VALUES ('announcement_text', '[color=red][b]Site Announcements[/b][/color] can be seen here!! :mrgreen:');
INSERT INTO phpbb_config (config_name, config_value) VALUES ('announcement_title_guests', 'Guest Announcements');
INSERT INTO phpbb_config (config_name, config_value) VALUES ('announcement_text_guests', '[color=green][b]Guest Announcements[/b][/color] can be seen here!! :wink:');
INSERT INTO phpbb_config (config_name, config_value) VALUES ('announcement_preview', '');
INSERT INTO phpbb_config (config_name, config_value) VALUES ('announcement_preview_guests', '');
I'm not absolutely sure.. but yes, I do think the MOD requires database changes. ;)

Regards
Wolfgang

EDIT: You have to run the queries with phpMyAdmin or a similar tool. If the prefix of your tables is not phpbb_ than please adapt the SQL instructions. And you can open .xml files with your browser. Good luck.

Right now I do not know.. I will let you know as soon as I have the answer...
that would be nice :)

i hope you can made it, because 255 is to few :(

Kind regards
I agree, I was using another announcement MOD for our old forum and it had unlimited characters which was very useful for longer announcements. Finding it VERY hard to work with the limitations of characters with this one.

Would also like to put a request in that the solution be sought asap.

Otherwise am very happy with this MOD, well done :)
I have started working on that... it will take a bit though...

Lefty74,

Maybe it would be interesting to have a possibility to show announcements to usergroups as well? So not only guest, memebers and all but specify e.g. moderators or admins or any created usergroup so that only they see the announcement. Do you think such a thing would be possible? :)

Grtz,

Nic

hi,
i did something similar for the phpbb2 version but do not think it was that useful.

It probably is possible to include that but I don't know enough of phpbb3 to do that. i hope one day to see the light and all the code makes sense ;) the mod/admin part does not seem to be as easy as it was on phpbb2 where u had it as user_level.

Left,
One Sugestion: what do you think about to create a randomic announcement, like a "tip of the day" and the information will change after a new page load.

try this post
post from area51
it explains how to do execute sql statements, your control panel might be slightly different but once you find phpmyadmin you should be ok.
