Differrent styles for different forums... Possible?

Post by metalcrypt »

Hello,

I was wondering if there was any way to set a different style for a specific forum? For example, say a 5-forums board has style X installed, but I'd like one of the 5 forums to have a style different from the other 4?

thanks,
Michel

You can check around in the MODs forums to see if anyone could create that MOD.

I ended up writing the mod myself, although it's very crude at this stage - the forum can't yet be set in the forum management panel, and it needs a bit more testing. Seems to be working OK on my board. When I'm sure the user-side part of things works, I'll work on the modifying the configuration panel.

Actually, things haven't moved since I posted about it. No complaints on the user side of things, so I assume that part works. But I haven't touched the admin panel yet, hopefully in the next few days.

It's ready but I have to ensure it conforms to the new mod template before uploading it to my site (and for now I'm too lazy to do that :D )

In the meantime, if you'd like to have it, e-mail me at michelr@metalcrypt.com

Mod uploaded to http://metalcrypt.bravepages.com

Also uploaded a mod that displays a special rank if a username is a moderator in the current forum.

thanks very much for realeasing this, after looking at your code I couldn't figure out to set it for categories and not just particular forums (like i mentioned in my email) but its not really that big of a deal anyway, thanks again :D

The category thing requires a bit more work.. Adding a new field to the categories table and looking for that, much like for the forums.

A nice addition to that mod possibly would be different rank images for different themes. Most dark themes look terrible if you have light rank images, and vice versa. I offer a dark theme, but the users just have to live with the fact they get bad looking rank images for now.

I think this one could be a little tricky but I'll keep it in mind for a future version.
