Adding a Notice Board at Index

Post by wbxpress »

I like to add a notice board containing some text/news/announcement at the top of the index page. Is there any easy solution/edit to add it. I dont like to create a portal for this only a single box requirement. Thank you in advance.

Hello wbxpress!

You should be able to use the following MOD: http://projectblueblood.com/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=35

Thank you Sinom for your help.

I will surely try this out.

Is there any simple edit / hardcode edit which would be capable of creating a section just below (the View unanswered posts • View unread posts • View new posts • View active topics) with a heading "Notice Board" and a sample text inside this box? This is my basic requirement. However if this is not possible, then I have to go for the MOD. Thanks anyway.

There's also Simple Announcement Bar which is a bit simpler, you should be able to place it where you like. If that won't do you can try searching the MODs database or make a request in the same place.

What about something like this? - http://farzone.tk/forum/index.php

Code: Select all

<div class="forabg">
	<div class="inner"><span class="corners-top"><span></span></span>
		<table class="table1" cellspacing="1">
		<thead>
		<tr>
			<th style="width: 100%;">Announcement</th>
		</tr>
		</thead>
		<tbody>
			<tr class="bg2">
					<td valign="top"><p>Place whatver you like between the "p" tags</p></td>
			</tr>
		</tbody>
		</table>

	<span class="corners-bottom"><span></span></span></div>
</div>
Put code above <!-- INCLUDE forumlist_body.html --> in index_body.html
A thread is pretty much a topic. Stop with the pedantics will ya.

@ 5hock: Thank you very much. :D This actually I was looking for. Thank you so much for your help.
I'd appreciate if someone could further assist me how to display a scrolling text /flash news /or something like that.

Thanks Mick.
