Friend Code Mod is coming up. Just trying to nail MODx down and getting the attention span to write it out.

Will more than likely add that in a future release. I'm just happy I got it to parse BBCode via the integrated forum system and not a third party parser i was originally using lol.

Well, there is a "Number of Players" field to the reviews, but I guess you can use it for anything really. The Mod was originally made for my college's Gaming Club as well as possibly another gaming fan site.

Anyone that is not a Guest or a Bot can post reviews. It's not clear (I'm trying out different ways of doing this), but at the top left side of the page, there should be a link that says "Write a new review." I'll see about making the navigation a little better.

I really stink at graphics so I wouldn't expect a pretty button as of right now. :D

Same way you install any Mod. Uncompress the contents of the zip file and open the Game_Review_Mod.xml file in your web browser and follow the directions.

OK. I've uploaded everything included in the zip, opened Game_Review_Mod.xml, added

Code: Select all

define('GR_REVIEWS', $table_prefix . 'gr_reviews');
to constants.php and uploaded the file again.
I can't see any difference.. What more do I have to do?

And yes, this is the first time I'm installing a mod for PhpBB3

In the root of the zip file, there should be a folder called Templates. In there you'll find instructions to editing your forum's style. Apply those changes and refresh your forum cache.

Sorry, I didn't realize Geoffreak's MODX Script generator made separate files for styles until now.


Also, make sure you run the SQL command found near the top of the Game_Review_Mod.xml file.

go to admin cp panel and in "general" purge your cash then go to "Styles" and refresh your prosilver/subsilver2(the one you installing the mod) template and theme . that should do.

at t27duck well, I like this mod and I like the possibilities (I have a gamming forums) , have you though about the possibility to make this Mod a Download Area Mod instead of a gamming reviews Mod. I think with that should work really cool and make a good Download Center/Area for forums.

Good job !, as my Forums get bigger , better and final Ill add your mod xD
