[split]Profiles on left - missing config files in KB article

Post by Genebaby » Thu Dec 25, 2014 10:17 am

Wow, it's been almost four years, I remember my PC dying, that was very annoying but the replacement has been going strong since. I went a little overboard with the upgrade.

So, I got things sorted last time but now I am back in the same boat after upgrading to 3.1.2 and needing a new, compatible theme.

This time I've gone with WoWDraenor.

Are new instructions needed to move the avatar/profile section over to the left in the 3.1 world?

Thanks

Vic

Anybody know what is up with moving the profiles to the left in 3.1?

I see they are still on the right here, lol.

Ok, I installed it and it's enabled, but the profiles have not moved across.

Is there anything else I need to do?

purge the cache. if that doesn't work then updating the style to the latest version would fix it.

as I said in the other post, he fixed some things in the latest version.

remember, you are using styles that have not been finalized yet and extensions that are still in development as well. you have to expect things to change.

I've updated to the latest version of the style, it fixed my other issue with the PM box colours, but the proflies are still on the right.

I have cleared the cache a lot and what I did was deactivate the style, then reactivated it, all while purging the cache.

Have you seen this extension work?

Works, just tried it.

Change in one of two places:

UCP -->> Board Preferences -->> Edit display options -- Display postprofile left --> YES

Can also change via viewtopic, via the drop-down WRENCH(next to "Post reply" button). Each user is able to decide whether they want it displayed on the left or right.

that is strange. when I installed the extension while using that style it just automatically moved them over. I did not have to set anything for using it.

let me go check. I guess it must be set to default to yes.

Correct, the default is set to "yes".

Interesting, this is still not working for me. I don't have that setting in the UCP or in the wrench.

I'm also after something that changes this setting board wide, for all users and guests, so that everyone sees the same thing, like what I had before.

Just to make sure:
ACP -->> Customise Tab -->> Manage extensions -- Disabled Extensions --> Profile side switcher -->> ENBABLE

The Default behavior after installing it is for everyone to have it on the left.

Example from my test install:

I don't know what's going on here, I just completely removed, re-downloaded and re-installed the Profile Side Switcher and it still isn't working.

Profiles are still on the right and I don't have any of the options mentioned above in the UCP or on each page where the spanner is.

This is very annoying. :evil:

Thanks. As this is to do with an extension, I'm treating it as a MOD from the old days, I hope that's correct.
