Modify again the language files with PSPad. Some editors put some junk characters before <? (ex. )

Just installed and it is working really Great :D

Just some sugestion to add :

Field to add :
- Phpbb Version
- Date of installation of the Mod (this can be help full to find bacjup files if problem later)
- A comment field where you can add codes if you have personolized the installation.

Website should open in new window when click on Mod URL

Add possibily to upload zip file of originla mod to the our own server so if one one need to install or uninstall again and that the author has disapread it can be helpfull :) (attachment or ftp)

Thanks :D

Hi, thanks for your suggestions, the problem with adding fields is that you end up running out of space quickly. When I was thinking of the fields I should include I limited it to the basics due to space constraints. It is ok if you have a high resolution and display the forum at full-width but a lot of users have 1024 x 768.
Website should open in new window when click on Mod URL
since this is not standard throughout the phpbb3 board, I wont include that in the standard mod but will post the change later when i get home from work :)

sorry, i dont think i have the knowledge to do that :( if you have ftp access to your server, you can do that anyway, just upload it and link it to the uploaded file, thats what i have been doing with the phpbb2 version i have on my board.

For Spcae what you can do is, add multiple line on description, location url can be reduce as it is Icon. You can limit also number of charachter on mod name and go to next line if name is too long. Also the Link URL can be in the name of mod instead of having an extra column. ;)

Sorry, this sounds a bit messy to be, what I might do is add the extra fields in the php files and you can put them in the template the way you like.

This is a simple mods database. i might change my mind one day and maybe try to make it so that you can open a mod in another window with more details and will definitely include your sujggestions but for now i wont have time to spend on that i am afraid.

Post by lefty74 » Thu Aug 30, 2007 6:27 pm

i was wondering, is there actually interest for a 'more details' feature where you can e.g. click a button and a new page (or maybe popup) opens with an overview of the mod including additional information like e.g. suggested by playerfr, a comment field etc.?

... or is what is available sufficient?

thanks
