Customization

Hello! I had a few questions about finishing the customization for my board.

1. I want to change the topic view around a little, mostly customizing it to look like vBulletin almost. Quote/Edit/Moderate going to the bottom right of the posts, dividing up each post and not having the posts connected, but individually posted (again, think vBulletin).

2. Shoutbox only appears on index, no other page on the forum.

3. Changing the links on my navigation bar.

4. Hide the Baidu, Google, etc search engines that show up.

My board is http://oldpaths1611.jaxboards.com

If I can get those little customizations down, it'll be perfect!

1 and 3 can be done pretty easily with meta tags. http://jaxboards.com/metaview.php a list of them is here and you just put them in your board wrappers and modify them as necessary. (you can also put them in a custom page and include the custom page in the board wrappers if that suits you better)

I believe Sean was working on a way to modify the navigation bar from the ACP as well, so you might just want to wait on that.

2 is probably possible with some simple javascript, something that checks if its not the index page and hides it in that case- I'd code it myself if I knew JS lol

4 is probably also possible with javascript, but there's some CSS you can do as well:

.userGooglebot {display:none;}
.userBing {display:none;}

I don't know what the other search engines are (probably just userNAME like the above, but they could be different!)

1) MTag: topic-post-row I'm assuming?

<M name="topic-post-row"><tbody class="topic-post-row" id="pid_%1$s">
<tr>
<td class="userdata" rowspan="2">
 <div class="username">%3$s</div>
 <div class="avatar"><a href=""?act=vu%15$s"><img src="%4$s" /></a></div>
 <div class="usertitle">%5$s</div>
 %18$s
 <div class="userstats">Posts: %6$s<br />Status: %7$s<br />Group: %8$s<br />Member: #%9$s</div>
</td>
<td class="post">
  <div class="post_buttons">%10$s %17$s</div>
  <div class="post_info">%11$s %12$s</div>
  <div class="post_content">%13$s%16$s</div>
  <div class="signature">%14$s</div>
</td>
</tr>
<tr>
 <td class="postbottom">%30$s<a href="javascript:scroll(0,0)">^ Top</a></td>
</tr>
</tbody></M>


2) To have the shoutbox appear on the inbox only will require some work, but I'm willing to work with you on that one.

3) Kesha is right, I do eventually plan on making a navigation bar editor. For now, you can use MTag: navigation

<M name="navigation"><div class="navigation" onclick="JAX.handleTabs(event,this,function(e){return e.parentNode;})"><ul><li class="active"><a href=""?">Home</a></li><li><a href="?module=buddylist">Contacts</a></li><li><a href="?act=search">Search</a></li><li><a href="?act=members">Members</a></li><li><a href="?act=ticker">Ticker</a></li><li><a href="?act=calendar">Calendar</a></li>%1$s%2$s%3$s</ul></div></M>


4) I think since you aren't the first person to ask for bots to be hidden, I'll just make an option for it in the ACP.

I've got the NavBar figured out. I appreciate that one! Exactly how do I apply #1? I put that code in but it didn't change the post like I had expected with the quote/moderate/edit buttons moving to the bottom of the post instead of the top. Maybe I put it in the wrong spot.

My other suggestion I just thought of was a better post screen for quick reply to include the bold/italics/underline wysiwyg editor as well, if that's possible.

For some reason the Meta Tags for the New Topic/Quick Reply/Reply aren't letting me get in the topic when I try to place an image in their meta tags. I take them out and I can access my thread, but when I have them in, I can't even get in the forum.

could you post the code you're using? Sometimes and error with the meta tags will make a page not show up

There's no problem in the code you posted. Does it break once you add something else?

I recently updated the buttons so that the action links were no longer required in the MTags, and just forgot to update the wiki. For the most recent tags, I like to share my little development tool:

Thanks!
