My first MOD is finally validated and put up in the database, thanks MOD team for being so quick when reviewing each version of my MOD and being patient as I learned how to code it as secure as phpBB is coded. It's been a lot of heard work the past few months (actually since summer if you want to count the code I did for my site's admin center before making this a MOD) and I'm happy to see it's paid off. ^_^

canĀ“t make it work

Here's a quick screencap ofwhat this mod looks like in the admin panel. All you really can't see is just the bottom where they're only a button that changes the banner after you select it. Not shown in that cap is that in the board config page, there's two fields added in where you can change the path of where your forum banners are located relative to the root phpBB directory, as well as a field to change the number of columns shown in the change banner page to optimize it for each admin depending on their resolution and banner sizes so they're not set to having only two columns displayed when many more can be on their screens.

As for the errors coming up, I'm not too sure of what could be causing them, I would either try inserting each SQL line one at a time, or using phpMyAdmin to enter them in if the SQL is being a problem. Also make sure that your images/banners folder has the logo_phpBB.gif file in there so the code picks up at least that file to get started. If there's any more problems, please post and I'll try my best to help out.

images/banners folder has the logo_phpBB.gif file in.

I double check it.

Oh thanks, I tried the code before copying the files (in the readme SQL is listed first... :? )

MarioKnight: what if you're using Global Admin Template?

I'm not excatly sure. Since I'm at my parents' right now I can't check it out tonight, but I'll look into it when I get home tomorrow evening and see what I can do for it.

Looking through the global admin template, it seems that you can just add in my MOD with no problems. Just instead of editting templates/subSilver/admin/board_config_body.tpl, you should edit templates/admin/board_config_body.tpl, and templates/subSilver/admin/banner_change.tpl in the ZIP file should be copied to templates/admin/banner_change.tpl. Other than those two small things, I don't see this MOD having any problems with a board with the global admin template hack installed.
