Glad that atleast one person replied to this thread saying he likes it ... :)

I have finished this MOD but since there have been some changes in the way MODS should be presented in phpBB3 (especially when it modifies existing templates) I m currently going through it and will post the ZIP file soon....

It should work fine without any problems dude.... Also just 1 php file and one template file(for each template) to modify and so not much changes at all ;-)

Those "screenshots" are showing as <image> here, nothing to click...I've installed the mod, but it's not doing what I think it should do, hence would like to see your examples :)

The old images were showing for me but dunno why it did not work for you... So I have uploaded the images again on to another image host.... Do tell me if you are able to see the images now....

Also regarding the changes you made as this MOD mentioned - did you refresh the Templates after you made the desired changes ??

What is the output you are able to notice after applying this MOD ??

Hi

I think there may be a mistake in your install instructions. In the viewforum.php, you say to find:

Code: Select all

'S_TOPIC_TYPE_SWITCH'	=> ($s_type_switch == $s_type_switch_test) ? -1 : 0)
and replace with:

Code: Select all

'S_TOPIC_TYPE_SWITCH'	=> ($s_type_switch == $s_type_switch_test) ? -1 : $s_type_switch_test)
The code that I have to find does not exist in the viewforum.php, but the code I am supposed to replace it with does already. Are these two supposed to be the other way around?

Just tested.

The third step in the installation instructions for the viewforum.php is wrong. It should read:

Find:

Code: Select all

'S_TOPIC_TYPE_SWITCH'	=> ($s_type_switch == $s_type_switch_test) ? -1 : $s_type_switch_test)
Replace With:

Code: Select all

'S_TOPIC_TYPE_SWITCH'	=> ($s_type_switch == $s_type_switch_test) ? -1 : 0)
Basically they were the wrong way around.

Great mod. This should have been shipped with phpBB3.
