Demo Board

username = test
password = tester

I have this mod installed on both subsilver and prosilver so you can see what they both look like.

One thing I have always enjoyed is a customized welcome message with my name in it when I visit a board. It gives the board personality and a welcoming feeling to the user. I took this mod a step further with a random message according to time of day. Hope you like it.

Hey Thanks Cherokee Red. Awesome idea for a mod! Thanks again. I don't know if you read the author comments I included in the mod txt file or not but I really appreciate your assistance for the creation of this mod.

Thanks Lefty,

I have a new version comming out this weekend. It will include some of your ideas for cleaning up the extra white space under the welcome message. The welcome message will now be in it's own seperate table on both subsilver2 and prosilver for a much cleaner view I have already added this change to my board. I just have to update the modx.

Also, I will include the German translation from nickvergessen.

2007-07-22 - Version 0.1.2Beta Just Relased!

Improvements and Fixes:Re-wrote template code for both subsilver2 and prosilver for much cleaner viewing of welcome message.

New code places welcome message in a new table just below the links table. Thanks to Lefty74 for the idea and testing ths out. (Cleaned up extra white space caused by previous version.)

Fixed bug with username dissapearing from welcome list when visiting other pages.

Removed Username variable from index.php and placed into includes/functions.php in order to display username on all pages.

Added extra welcome message for early visitors

welcome_name is not set if the person comes as a guest, (see your demo board) or something.

Code: Select all

[phpBB Debug] PHP Notice: in file /includes/functions.php on line 4209: Undefined variable: welcome_name

Thanks for bringing that to my attention. Fortunatly the bug was only on my board and NOT in the MOD Install Intructions.

Got it fixed now. ;)

Excellent mod. :) Does it have options to have entirely seperate greetings for guests/members? Also, is there the option to remove the personalised greeting based on time of day? That would be great.

Cheers
