Installation

Any previous versions of this mod need to be uninstalled prior to installing this version.

Installation slightly varies depending on SMF version.

SMF 1.1.1 to 1.1.4 & SMF 2.0 Beta 1/1.1
Installing the mod will only fully install the mod on the SMF Default Core Theme.
For all other themes which have a custom Post.template.php a manual edit will be required to add the BBCode Button.
(SMF 2.0 Beta 1 Only) You can choose to have the SMF Package Manager attempt* to perform the manual edit on all themes.

FIND
'flash' => array('code' => 'flash',
ADD BEFORE
'metacafe' => array('code' => 'metacafe', 'before' => '[metacafe]', 'after' => '[/metacafe]', 'description' => $txt['metacafe']),

You will also need to place a copy of the metacafe.gif in each of your themes bbc image folders (eg Themes/{themename}/images/bbc)

If your using a language different than the ones supported this mod (listed above), then you will need to add the following to the Modifications.{language}.php for each theme (The language folder can be found eg Themes/{themename}/languages/)

FIND
?>
ADD BEFORE (and translate as necessary the language strings)
$txt['metacafe'] = 'MetaCafe';
$txt['metacafe_invalid'] = '#Invalid MetaCafe Link#';


SMF 2.0 Beta 2/2.1/3/3 Public
From SMF 2.0 Beta 2, the BBCode buttons have been moved from the templates and into the source files.
Therefore no manual edits will normally be required. Installing the mod will automatically install it on ALL themes.

However you will still need to place a copy of the metacafe.gif in each of your themes bbc image folders (eg Themes/{themename}/images/bbc)

And if your using a language different than the ones supported this mod (listed above), then you will need to add the following to the Modifications.{language}.php for each theme (The language folder can be found eg Themes/{themename}/languages/)

FIND
?>
ADD BEFORE (and translate as necessary the language strings)
$txt['metacafe'] = 'MetaCafe';
$txt['metacafe_invalid'] = '#Invalid MetaCafe Link#';
