that will make your mod more user-friendly when they need to install your mod
..and you also wana reduce the replaces..Like for example,for the first part,you do this:
Find:
$sql = "SELECT u.username
In-Line Find:
u.user_msnm,
In-Line After Add:
u.user_jabber,

I've updated my original post using the Mod Template system Shof515 graciously linked me to, hopefully the syntax is correct because the description of the use of the IN-LINE FIND widget was not great and I was left unsure as to whether I needed to use a regular find to find the line first or not (I simply used the IN-LINE FIND as it was described in the KB).

There was actually a little bit of text explaining that but i've added the correct SQL syntax for it now.

Yes, in my search for this mod I found that out but I went ahead for several reasons:
  • I needed this mod now, and I saw on the page on the Mod Request Forum I linked to in my first post that other people were in the same boat and infact phpBB lost users because of the lack of this Mod/Feature.
  • The phpBB developers not giving a release date for the release of phpBB 2.2.xx.
  • The fact that even when phpBB 2.2.xx is released many people, myself included will not install it on our websites until it has proven to be sexure and reliable (a 3month wait at least is normal).

Hiya,

I've just installed this on our test server. A few buglets with the code snippets above...

Code: Select all

$jabber_img = ( $postrow[$i]['user_jabber'] ) ? '<a href="' . $temp_url . '"><img src="' . $images['icon_jabber'] . '" alt="' . $lang['JABBER'] . '" title="' . $lang['MSNM'] . '" /></a>' : '';
#
should be:

Code: Select all

$jabber_img = ( $postrow[$i]['user_jabber'] ) ? '<a href="' . $temp_url . '"><img src="' . $images['icon_jabber'] . '" alt="' . $lang['JABBER'] . '" title="' . $lang['JABBER'] . '" border="0" /></a>' : '';
i.e. changed the lang & added a null border to the icon.

Other than it seems to be working ok.

Thanks!

Thanks very much for the feedback, the $lang['MSNM'] part was a stupid oversight on my behalf, thanks for the heads-up. The border="0" part was actually intentionally because i've modified all the themes on my board to be XHTML 1.0 STRICT compliant so rather than having border="0" for each instance of an image i've added the line:

Code: Select all

      img {
        border: 0; }
Into the stylesheet for each theme; as it is this is non-standard for SubSilver so i'll change the code above to reflect this, thanks again! :D

This mod is not easymod compliant. Does someone who knows what they're doing willing to do this for me?

I need to check it to make sure it works fine with phpBB 2.0.11 (although I can't see there being any problems). If you can tell me what the error messages are i'll fix the problems at the same time; as I stated above I wasn't sure how the IN-LINE FIND widgit worked but I suspect it's a case of finding the line itself and then doing an in-line find within that whole line for the specific string that needs to be replaced. Can anybody confirm this for me?

EDIT: Okay, i've added [ FIND ]s before the [ IN-LINE FIND ]s and checked that it does indeed work fine with phpBB 2.0.11, any info as to whether it works with this EasyMod would be welcomed.

Good mod. You should replace the $table_prefix with phpbb, though.

The problem with doing that is that there is no standard prefix for the tables used by phpBB, instead it suggests "phpbb_" but the user is free to enter their own prefix. Out of intrest, did you install this using EasyMod or by hand?

Well, 2 things stopped the installation working on easymod for me

The first was the find on mod line #197. For the life of me I couldn't figure out why easymod couldn't find the search string. In the end I just did that one bit manually. (This has happened to me before with other mods). It's not because I have another mod interferring, cos I didn't have any other mods change usercp_register.php

The second thing was the SQL statement with '$table_prefix_users' in it. I just did that manually.

Thanks for the mod.

Well I figure most people probably use the default prefix for the tables, and those that have not should not find it a problem to change that little snippit of SQL so i'll change that. Now looking at the mod in JEdit line 197 is actually a #, but the bit following it is:

Code: Select all

#
#-----[ FIND ]------------------------------------------------
#
         $sql = "INSERT INTO " . USERS_TABLE . "   (user_id, username, user_regdate, user_password, user_email, user_icq, user_website, user_occ, user_from, user_interests, user_sig, user_sig_bbcode_uid, user_avatar, user_avatar_type, user_viewemail, user_aim, user_yim, user_msnm, user_attachsig, user_allowsmile, user_allowhtml, user_allowbbcode, user_allow_viewonline, user_notify, user_notify_pm, user_popup_pm, user_timezone, user_dateformat, user_lang, user_style, user_level, user_allow_pm, user_active, user_actkey)
Was this the problem area and did you have to manually edit in ", user_jabber" after the ", user_msnm"?
