  • Cal: I do what I can. :D
    December 14, 2014, 10:54:40 am
  • Zozma: I'm glad this site exists.
    December 13, 2014, 07:37:39 pm
  • Cal: Ha, point.
    December 10, 2014, 01:40:20 pm
  • Honey Love: It needs some serious love to install nicely on 2.0 lol
    December 09, 2014, 02:07:09 pm
  • Cal: That's what I'm thinking about doing, HL!  It needs a lot of love to install in 2.1.
    December 05, 2014, 05:48:29 pm
  • Honey Love: Are you allowed to rewrite it and privately supply? XD
    December 04, 2014, 09:56:12 pm
  • Zozma: And personally, none of the other sub accounts are as sexy as SMF's.
    December 04, 2014, 04:51:31 am
  • Zozma: Kinda sad that SMF led the charge and then just dropped it. :(
    December 04, 2014, 04:49:52 am
  • Cal: I could certainly try writing my own, but that's a lot more time than just supporting other people's problems.  XD
    December 03, 2014, 09:40:06 am
  • Cal: The interesting thing about that is that all of them are based on SD's work for SMF, since it was the first.  :)
    December 03, 2014, 09:39:21 am
  • Honey Love: There are subaccount mods on just about all forum software now. Most of them included by default *eyes smf*
    December 02, 2014, 12:58:38 pm
  • Honey Love: Can you write your own version for release?
    December 02, 2014, 12:57:11 pm
  • Zozma: Aww, that stinks.
    November 27, 2014, 10:39:28 pm
  • Cal: I've been thinking of rewriting the mod for 2.1, but I couldn't release it officially because SD quit before opening the license. :(
    November 25, 2014, 03:11:55 am
  • Zozma: I wish they'd make sub accounts an included feature though. So sick of wrestling with the mod...
    November 25, 2014, 02:34:32 am
  • Zozma: 2.1 looks pretty nice so far but I haven't seen it from the back end yet.
    November 25, 2014, 02:33:57 am
  • Honey Love: Make it appear above the signatures and you have unlimited room on the thread-view too
    November 11, 2014, 06:17:09 am
  • Honey Love: At the most basic, you could do something like: <center><b>AWARDS</b><br> xXx {INPUT} xXx</center> in the Profile section in admin, then in the profile field on the account you just put {img]URL[/img} (space or a BBC br) and it'll show up the image you want. If you remove the maximum length you should be able to input indefnitely :)
    November 11, 2014, 06:16:38 am
  • Saenote: Ohh. Sad. I would be manually rewarding them though, anyway, I'm just not too good with hand-coding.
    November 10, 2014, 03:04:13 pm
  • Cal: That's what I would suggest too -- the awards systems are huge pains in the ass.
    November 10, 2014, 09:27:39 am
  • Honey Love: You could do more manual style awards by creating admin-edit only profile options and inserting awards yourself in that manner. It's what I had planned to do with SP before I gave up because I can't make nice icons XD
    November 09, 2014, 09:18:11 pm
  • Saenote: oh, bummer
    November 06, 2014, 11:48:57 am
  • Honey Love: Eh, I've tried a couple of them but I haven't really been happy with the way either of the available ones on SMF work.
    November 06, 2014, 03:55:31 am
  • Saenote: Does anyone know anything about awards systems? I want to have one so people can be recognized for taking part in art challenges and the like.
    November 05, 2014, 11:52:11 am
  • Saenote: It's so lovely.
    November 03, 2014, 06:10:54 pm
  • Cal: It's like yahtzee.
    November 03, 2014, 06:05:28 pm
  • Saenote: Don't you just love it when a new character falls together perfectly?
    November 03, 2014, 04:31:29 pm
  • Saenote: Ahh... I finally had time to work on the mockup for a skin I'd like to create and it turns out that I don't have photoshop, at all, on this computer. Heheheh.
    November 03, 2014, 01:58:13 am
  • Zozma: I love bookmarks. <3
    October 14, 2014, 11:41:59 pm
  • Kin: man, that is pretty neat!
    October 04, 2014, 10:50:46 am
  • Cal: Bookmarks is a mod! One of my favorites.
    October 03, 2014, 08:20:15 pm
  • Kin: oh hey, is that bookmarks link at the top of the forum a mod? or is that part of smf now?
    October 03, 2014, 11:49:29 am
  • Cal: How's it going?
    September 27, 2014, 09:08:05 am
  • Saenote: Wow, right under my nose again.
    August 30, 2014, 02:48:37 pm
  • Saenote: How did you take out the post-based member groups?
    August 30, 2014, 02:46:39 pm
  • Saenote: Just modifying colors and such of LBD right now~
    August 30, 2014, 02:05:06 pm
  • Saenote: Success!
    August 30, 2014, 01:13:45 pm
  • Saenote: I haven't done much. c:
    August 30, 2014, 12:50:52 pm
  • Saenote: Ohh.
    August 30, 2014, 12:50:43 pm
  • Cal: Or a fresh install, if you haven't made any changes yet.
    August 30, 2014, 12:50:42 pm
  • Cal: You can try downloading repair_settings.php
    August 30, 2014, 12:50:35 pm
  • Saenote: I may need to go through with a clean install because the forum still thinks that the subaccounts mod is being installed even for non-subaccount mods.
    August 30, 2014, 12:50:14 pm
  • Cal: Yeah, that would be a problem!
    August 30, 2014, 12:48:19 pm
  • Saenote: It's still set to localhost when my server settings should be acp, I believe.
    August 30, 2014, 12:48:04 pm
  • Saenote: OH.
    August 30, 2014, 12:47:46 pm
  • Saenote: Yep. I wonder what I've done wrong?
    August 30, 2014, 12:46:50 pm
  • Cal: That seems like a problem.
    August 30, 2014, 12:46:29 pm
  • Saenote: Nope. Not on the second try. I can't seem to access other mods either.
    August 30, 2014, 12:46:12 pm
  • Cal: Did it give you any errors other than for "install in themes" ?
    August 30, 2014, 12:45:27 pm
  • Saenote: I feel like I've done something wrong, even though I simply emulated the forum version and installed the .zip file as normal.
