Did you read this post
hehe, thanks for bringing that to the other guys attention, Kenta.
Least it shows that some of you actually read the thread.
But i bring another update with me...
It's official, i don't like making mods which need a control panel, lol.
This thing has been nothing but a nightmare to get working. However, i continue to fight it and figure out how to get it working.
The good news...
I can now make it save and read info from a custom table that stores data about where the path for the videos is going to be, etc. It might seem trivial to some of the mod writers here, but i'm happy with the simple things
I think once i've got the basics worked out fully, i'm going to set up a category view so that the view page will allow you to choose from different folders to view videos in. So it'd allow for say "Music", "Family Vids", "Holiday Vids" (that's vacation for the non UK english speakers
), etc, etc. As for me that's rather important over much of the other things i want to put into it.
So, i'm getting there. Slowly, but surely.
If there's any modders reading this who could give me a simple working example of how to set up a basic control panel (specially as an additional module to the admin CP), i'd really really appreciate it.
It only needs to be something that will read and write to a custom table, with data forms to enter/edit info.
Soemthing that i can elaborate on by using that as a base to work from. As i'm sure that my attempt is probably far too clunky and fully of extra code i don't need.
Plus i find it's helpful to see other attempts at it so i can understand how it all works better.
As the data on phpbb about adding ACP modules isn't what i'd call easy to follow
Well, that's me out for now.
