Will it work on the helius theme

Postby moonwarp on Wed Jul 05, 2006 2:00 am

Hi there,

This is a mod that will really come in useful for me, I would love to intall it using the helius theme, will it work with it?

All I keep hearing about a admin/_xs.php file but I'm damned if I can find it in any directory of mt phpBB2 do I just create the directory?

I prefer the helius theme but I'v also found that the simple image uploader will work on any theme I have except helius, what is so different about it?

Thanks a lot and a big thank you to the author.

Joe

Greetings,

All mods will work with all styles available for phpBB.

However, installing a mod to a style other than subSilver can be problematic at least and a nightmare at the worst due to the way some styles are built. You may not find the code you are told to find in the mod instructions as 'some' styles are not clones of subSilver and therefore the HTML is different. So when your asked to find some code in a template look for a template variable, the things inside {}, if there is one in the code your asked to find as that should get you in the general area you need to be. If not then one thing to do would be to open the corresponding 'subSilver' template and see where abouts in the file the 'find' is you should then have an idea of where abouts to look in the template for the style your adding the mod to.

BUT it will be a case of trial and error until you get it right and therefore some knowledge of HTML is an advantage. After you've done it a few hundred times you'll wonder what all the fuss was about... ;)

Thanks very much for that you should write a guide to all this php :D

I'll try that 1st thing tomorrow/today, as I've been awake for about 4 days now and need at least an hours sleep,

thanks a lot

Joe

[quote user="UseLess" post="58339"]Greetings,

Follow the instructions above, but where it states;

Code: Select all

do this instead...

#

{S_HIDDEN_FIELDS}

Greetings,

Does that style have a quick reply? If so just add the hidden field to the forum for the quick reply, as well as making the other changes detailed in 1st post.
