My first request! Any help would be appreciated!

Post by Grayfox215th » Thu Apr 15, 2010 3:50 pm

Hey all,

I've used this site for years but never registered for some reason. Always be really helpful!

Anywho, I have some questions/mod requests if someone can help me.

I'm currently running a forum that is heavy on video games (mainly madden). The one issue we have is that some people are XBOX and others are PS3 and there seems to always be some confusion. I was wondering how would I go about adding a feature that would allow people to select which system they are on and have that icon appear next to their name.

If that is an issue, what about having the icon be placed at the bottom of your posts? Like where you normally have the Profile/PM/AIM/Yahoo buttons at...?

Again, thanks in advance to any help/suggestions!

A quick sorry to the mods. I didn't read the rules and what not when posting this.

I think you can take care of this with the custom profile fields. I'm also pretty sure you can have it put next to in the viewtopic.php by selecting an option. Let me know if that doesn't work for you!

If you know some PHP, you can find the genders modification, which you could just rename (and change the images) to be for the XBox/PS3. If you don't know how to do that, I can, but you'll have to give me the images (I can't make them....).

Nice. I already have the icons. What size should they be?

I do not have the gender mod though...would installing it just basicly be uploading the folder to the ftp?

Ok so I just read up on installing MOD's and quite frankly, I'm lost. Adding bbcodes, themes, smilies, and even the forum itself was rather easy but I'm drawing a blank with this for some reason.

I guess figuring out how to install the mod would be first...

Haha once you do one, you'll see it isn't that bad. Just open the file in notepad, find the line in the find section, then do the next step (usually a replace, add after, or add before). Let me know if there is anything I can help you with!

This is the Genders MOD.

The preferred method for opening the install.xml file is with your web browser, it will look a whole lot better and be easier to follow than opening it with notepad.

To edit files you will need a proper text editor, notepad isn't even good for that because it can add byte order marks (BOM) that will cause problems with some files, see this topic Tools for development for some recommended text editors and a few other useful tools.

Bah, have been having some issues getting this working right. Is there a service that some regulars here provide where I could pay to have someone do it for me?

A few on the staff at phpBB do that about the only way to find out is to check their signatures on posts and they may make reference to it.

I suggest posting your issues in the topic for the MOD, if that doesn't work then maybe contact the MOD author and ask if he does a paid install service (evil>3 is very experienced and is a former staff member), if not he may be able to recommend someone.
