Hi lefty74,

thank you for rewriting your MOD for Olympus and the best wishes for your project! I hope you will be able to integrate an auth system (announcements only visible for guests/members/both) and it will cost as few queries as possible.

Regards
Wolfgang

This is almost exactly what I need. ;) Think you can add an option to turn it into a news fader? :P

Thanks. :D

Could you let me know what exactly you were thinking of.

I will keep it in mind and once I get more familiar with everything I will have a look.

first of all let me say that its a great mod. basically i was searching for something of this sort. thanks

i just want to confirm some things with you.

1. is there any limit to characters in this section. i mean i tried to add a bit longer annoucement and it didn't show up properly.

2. how do i get it on all the pages. i mean i added it on overall_header but it didn't work. it was only coming on index page.

hi,
sorry, right now, it has a limit on characters (255).

unless i put it in a separate table, the one thing you can do is

Code: Select all

ALTER TABLE `phpbb_config` CHANGE `config_value` `config_value` TEXT NOT NULL 
I have not tried to put it into the header and I am not sure whether I know how to either (at the moment)... Right now, as mentioned in the description, this mod adds an announcement box to the index.
