      My is often hard work and as I suspect that English isn't your native language I'm even more willing to help where I can.

    • ChristmasIsPerplexing

    • swampy
      Thank you Grek!
      Well Done!

    • [elenor]
      Thank you Grek!

    • R.Bourne
      Greg buddy, thanks for all your hard work though.

    • leah
      And we'd be forced to pay for it.  I think you're being rather harsh on mod developers who've spent hours and hours working on mod code, and possibly time that they could have spent earning money doing something else with their time.

      If two mods are incompatible, it means that they both alter the same blocks of code. Once one changes the block, then the other can no longer find the matching code to change. If every mod author had to read through all the thousands of mods to make them compatible with everything that could edit your Display.php file, nothing would get done at all.

      It might not be difficult to get them working together if you edit manually and/or know a little php or are willing to learn. Share your fix and give a little something back to SMF. That's what open source is about.

      Package choice is a matter of carefully reading the descriptions and support threads to work out what features mean the most to you and limit the mods you use accordingly. 

      Great mod, nice work, thank you!

    • Darthemis

    • Q: i have error when installed...
           Execute Modification     ./Themes/default/Display.template.php     Test failed

      A: Are you currently using any mods that have already edited Display.template.php? From my experience, a fail usually indicates that the required code cannot be found usually because it's not there or it's been edited by another mod.

      Have a look at the section of code that the mod is trying to find and see if you can match it up:

      If not, you'll need to manually install the mod.

    • Q: I installed today this mod and i have some problem.
      I dont see any text in admin area, even i do see boxes and simialr

      A: Do you use the english-utf8 languagepack?

      If yes, you have to make the changes from the english languagepack to the english-utf8 languagepack or you have to install this mod:

    • Q: all moderators of my site could not see below link
      they say it gives "you dont have a permission to see this page" error

      A: The error says it all. They haven't got the permission to view it.
      Have you checked the permissions and the mod settings?

    • Q: is this mod only for the default template? if it is how can i use it for another template? thanks
      A: Yepp, it's only for default theme. In custom theme you can install it manually

    • Q: How to make mods work with themes?
