Does anyone know if you can include html or BBCode in your message? I have tried and failed.

This is one mod that I would LOVE to have!! Since I'm still developing my forum this would be a great announcement feature.

After adding all of the code and files required I am unable to locate the option for this mod in the ACP.

Is there something I'm doing wrong?

TIA!

OK, its likely that you haven't added it as a module.
  • Go to the ACP.
    Click on the "System" tab
    On the left under "Module Management" click "Administration Control Panel"
    Then choose the "General" category
    Then create another category called "phpBBroadcast" (or whatever you want). Make sure you enable the module
    Go into the category you just made and choose "Configure" form underneath the phpBBroadcast heading in the dropdown list next to the button that says "add module"
    Make sure that you enable and display the module.
    It will then appear under the "General" tab

Thanks! I managed to get the module added, but when trying to get to it in ACP I get the following debug error:

I think i know why thats happened, go to line 13 in includes/acp/acp_phpBBroadcast.php

and replace

Code: Select all

include($phpbb_root_path . '/includes/functions_phpBBFolk.'.$phpEx);
  
with

Code: Select all

include($phpbb_root_path . 'includes/functions_phpBBFolk.'.$phpEx);
  
Tell me if that works.

Same Thing:

FYI - I checked the includes folder, and I do not have a functions_phpBBFolk.php file...

Oh dear, sorry about that. I didnt read the message properly. You can safely remove that line. Thats from my other mod and shouldnt have been left in there

Ok. Thanks!! FYI, I got the following error also:
template->_tpl_load_file(): File ./style/acp_phpBBroadcast_configure.html does not exist or is empty
***EDIT****

If my FTP client wouldn't have changed case I would be ok....Got it installed finally :)

I'll let you know how it works!

Thanks for your help.

Are you sure that you edited the correct files? The one on my board is on all pages. Let me just check wether the installation file is correct.
