As the developers of UBB.threads, we assume that you have a working web server, capable of hosting PHP scripts with the path_info variable readily available to the system; the configuration of your web server to get to that point is outside of the scope of support for these user to user forums. Any support provided by the userbase is at their discretion and is not provided by the vendor.

I can say that the Smarty templating engine is quite fickle when it comes to permissions; I'd use the permission checker in the CP to check your files, and manually ensure your sessions/ and templates/compile/ folders are chmodded 777 (full read/write).

Hi guys,

When a user uploads an avatar, I've noticed that they now all appear square in posts, regardless of setting the Membership > Profile Settings > Avatar Image Max Height with more length (I have it set at 280 pixels).

Can we support portrait avatars, if author content is on the side when in desktop/tablet mode? I understand that if it's viewed from a phone, it prevents the image from going over, because author content ends up at the top rather than the side. As for non-users and users not using avatars, the square is perfectly fine. smile

I see that the Member Spotlight and Profile displays portrait avatars no problem...

We will not be "streamlining" this process, ever, as it'd remove these options. The forum template and copy permissions options already trim time when creating new forums and categories, by allowing you to set a common set of permissions so you don't have to customize them every time you want to create a new forum.

Isaac, thanks again.

I'll point him at UBBT77.zip and the thread on how to do it.

Sometimes board owners are hard work facepalm

I assume he will have to apply your previous recommendation to both styles

Quote
1) Go to Control Panel > Styles
2) Find the forum style you'd like to update, and click its name.
3) Navigate to Forum Properties > .forum-input
4) add to the bottom of that list, "font-family:Courier New;"
Click on "Update or Add Style" button at the bottom.

Okay, because every time I do a forum search, it highlights the keyword searched on every post and the highlights literally save everywhere.

For example, I search "Patch Notes" and any posts that have that phrase is highlighted permanently, even when I leave the search query.

I agree! I've only applied the sounds to a few hyperlinks as to test and see how the users feel about it. I'm thinking by default, there will be no sound effects, but the sounds can be turned on with an option to do so... Thanks for the advice and tips Gizmo!

How do I?
03/10/19 10:37 PM
Hi guys,

I'm trying to add a modification called CSS Scanlines for the background image of the site only (eventually I'd like to figure out how this image can change each time the page is refreshed or loaded).

I cleaned up the unnecessary stuff to focus on only applying it for the background image (this image).

HTML cleanup of scanlines index.html file:
HTML
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en" >

<head>
  <meta charset="UTF-8">
  <title>CSS Scanlines</title>
  
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/normalize/5.0.0/normalize.min.css">

  
      <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/style.css">

  
</head>

<body>

<!-- SCANLINES BOX -->

<ul class="scanlines">

    <!-- IMG -->
    <li id="jpg"><div class="jpg"></div></li>
    </li>

</ul>
  <script src='https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/jquery/2.1.3/jquery.min.js'></script>

  <script src="js/index.js"></script>

</body>

</html>


CSS cleanup of /css/style.css file:
Code
/* LIST OF FURTHER IMPROVEMENTS */
/*
currently working on :
calculation draft for keyframes steps

$scan-moving-duration: 3s;
$scan-moving-delay: 7s;

total time = 10s (duration + delay)
keyframes :
    0%: wait
    15%: start moving
    85%: end moving & start waiting
    100% : wait

(the rest later)

...I modified line 65 UBB.thread's common.css file to this:

Code
/* initialize some default page settings */
a,div,p,td,li,span{max-height:999999em;}
html {
background: url(https://aliendisc.net/images/eartherb.jpg) no-repeat center center fixed;

}

.jpg {

-webkit-background-size: cover;
-moz-background-size: cover;
-o-background-size: cover;
background-size: cover;
height: 100%;
overflow: auto;
}


This is my Header Insert For All Pages related to this mod:

Code
<meta charset='UTF-8'>
<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.5.2/jquery.min.js"></script>
<link rel="stylesheet" href="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/normalize/5.0.0/normalize.min.css">
<link rel="stylesheet" href="css/style.css">
<script src='https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/jquery/2.1.3/jquery.min.js'></script> <script src="js/index.js"></script>


When I insert:

Code
<!-- SCANLINES BOX -->

<ul class="scanlines">

    <!-- IMG -->
    <li id="jpg"><div class="jpg"></div></li>
    </li>

</ul>


Into portal.tpl, the modifcation appears, however it is not behind everything. It acts as a cell?
I'm trying to find where the scanlines box code is to be inserted. I tried ubbthreads.php and various other files.
As you can see, I'm not very advanced with my understanding of these functions, any pointers would be appreciated!!

Thank you

20 posts is okay also. It is your call.
If you throttle up the time between posts for newbies. You may upset a couple, But oh well.
Also stop forum spam should help. If enabled.

The only reason I said to ftp to clean up the logs. is because it would take forever in the control panel.for that many files. where ftp access could wipe them really quick.
and you would save over 50 mb's for just the admin logs. when displaying the logs.

Upgrading system software (PHP, Apache, MySQL, etc) is well outside of the scope of user to user support on these forums, and really should be done by your data center or someone extremely capable of handling system upgrade tasks; this is especially true in the case of migrating from MySQL to MariaDB.

It is extremely easy for one who is not familiar with upgrading system utilities via command line (or even via EasyApache for WHM) to make mistakes, and even neglect to tune their newly installed services, and that is not a level of troubleshooting that we're prepared to offer.

Not Gizmo, but I'm here now, and can reply for him smile

In the first section of his post, he gave examples of what Smarty code needs to be changed. Not direct replacements for stock code. He was using my simple examples as the base of his demonstration, rather than using actual stock code. This was intentional, as to demonstrate and focus on the root cause of the issue.


Modify the Smarty clauses, and keep the spans within the list as shown in the grep code window Gizmo posted.

IN THESE THREE STOCK TEMPLATE FILES -
templates/default/post_gallery.tpl (1x)
templates/default/post_top.tpl (1x)
templates/default/post_side.tpl (2x)

FIND -
{if $postrow[post].userid eq $opid}

REPLACE WITH -
{if $postrow[post].userid eq $opid && $postrow[post].userid neq '1'}

Selecting a style is also available to users within their Preference Editor.
1) Profile Dropdown Menu (Member Name/Top-Right)
2) Click Preferences
3) Select the Preferred Forum Style (aka Skin/Theme)
Save Changes.

I'm sure that if you only had two styles, you could create a link to hard-code toggle between style named "DEFAULT" and "NOT-DEFAULT," so that you'd have a "dumb toggle."

This would be something you'd have to custom program yourself, since there are plenty of sites that allow users the choice between more than just 1/ DEFAULT and 2/ NOT-DEFAULT.

You could even relocate the drop-down to another location on your pages, so that its right up-front for the user to click and toggle between. Then you can populate it with all the styles you want -- or just two. But that would add clutter to the most important parts of your pages. Really how often do users toggle between multiple styles on each visit session?

But the very simple alternative would be to just offer up the end user a browser-extension.
