Actually, *.gif isn't the only extension that you can use it with, it's also compatible with *.jpg, *.jpeg, and even *.png. Basically the code for displaying the banner images in the module is a slightly modified code from the avatar display generators. I don't see why *.swf files wouldn't work, to add them on in admin/admin_banner.php find
Code: Select all
if( preg_match('/(\.gif$|\.png$|\.jpg|\.jpeg)$/is', $file) )
and replace it with
Code: Select all
if( preg_match('/(\.gif$|\.png$|\.jpg|\.jpeg|\.swf)$/is', $file) )
That should work for that. As for using this mod with other styles', the only change that would have to be made is in the styles' templates/your_style_here/overall_header.tpl file. There will be a line similar, if not the same, as in other templates where the img tag for the banner is. Just make the change that's in the MOD in that line to make it work for that style. If your style is a color modified subSilver variation, then it will be excatly the same. And like all other mods that change something displayed in forums, you'll have to change the templates folder files for each style.
Laberganster, I would double check your files that you changed for this mod, and make sure the modified files are uploaded on your server (see up a few posts, a good 2 hours wasted because of that -_-). If they're excatly the way they should be, PM or IM me and I'll work with you best I can to see what we can figure out and how I can fix it if there was an oversight on my part.
gypsie, to move the banner itself, all you have to do is move the img tag of the banner (templates/subSilver/overall_header.tpl) to whereever you please in your code. As long as you make the approiate change in the img tag, the MOD will work no matter where the banner is placed.
