My users are used to seeing their avatars and such on the left of each message instead of at the top. How do I change this easily under 2.6?

Thanks

You need to modify drawmsg.tmpl to change the message display format.

1st lemme say that I LOVE FUDforums!!!
Well, I loved <= 2.5rc3

I havent wanted to get involved with this line of discussion because of the smackdown the admins here have been laying on the issue. But why on earth, if it is that easy, cant there be another template as part of the standard FUDforum package? Why is there only one, if it is just that easy?

I have been holding off on upgrading from 2.5rc3 on all my forums. I maintain alot of clan forums and I upgraded one "Game Server Admin" forums to 2.6 and I got the smackdown from all my users.

Why is there only one?

Quote:

[13:55:41] [[RoD]Lord-Working] and why I can do it in other forum?
[13:55:52] [[RoD]Lord-Working] yeah
[13:55:55] [[RoD]Lord-Working] exactly
[13:56:12] [[RoD]Lord-Working] after you upload an image and you press Pre view
[13:56:22] [[RoD]Lord-Working] the forum show you
[13:56:22] [[RoD]Lord-Working] how will look the post
[13:56:24] [[RoD]Lord-Working] with the image
[13:56:26] >BAR|BeerThePenguin< ahh
[13:56:35] >BAR|BeerThePenguin< lemme try it
[13:56:44] [[RoD]Lord-Working] ok
[13:57:51] >BAR|BeerThePenguin< hmmm
[13:57:59] >BAR|BeerThePenguin< it doesnt work for me either... until i finish it
[13:58:01] >BAR|BeerThePenguin< and post
[13:58:11] [[RoD]Lord-Working] hmmm
[13:58:11] >BAR|BeerThePenguin< it just shows the URL
[13:58:24] >BAR|BeerThePenguin< I cant upgrade the forum
[13:58:43] >BAR|BeerThePenguin< 2.5.3RC3 is the last of the 2.5 line
[13:58:51] >BAR|BeerThePenguin< and 2.6 looks like UTadmins forums
[13:58:59] >BAR|BeerThePenguin< it drastically alters the forum layout
[13:59:04] >BAR|BeerThePenguin< im not sure everyone would like it
[14:00:22] [[RoD]Lord-Working] hmmm
[14:00:24] [[RoD]Lord-Working] that fix the bug?
[14:00:34] >BAR|BeerThePenguin< they probably have in 2.6


Never ask a geek why, just nod your head and slowly back away.

Because it creates inconsistency without any visible advantage.

I believe that the default template makes it difficult to read shorter messages (I am not the only one). I think it is difficult because the user information sort of runs together with the body of the message.

I added 'padding: 1ex; padding-top: 2ex;' to the 'MsgR3' class in the stylesheet on my board. I think this has made it easier to read short messages.

Good idea, let's try it. I've applied the patch to CVS.

Can you provide an example for what exactly has to be modified? Let´s say that all user data should be on the left side from the message.

The template is pretty much plain HTML, so it shouldn't be that hard to figure out how to re-arrange the data.

@Ilia:

Master Ilia, I can see the wisdom in your words, but I am not able to do what I asked for Very Happy

Please note that not everybody is a web developer who has to do with HTML, PHP etc. daily. For instance, when I would have the knowledge to realize my wish I would do it without asking in this forum Cool

I would really appreciate a little and useful example and it seems that I am not the only one who is looking for help Rolling Eyes

If you can't do something you usually hire someone who can, when my car breaks I take it to a mechanic...

We (Advanced Internet Designs Inc.) already provide the forum software for free and resolve any bug related issue and more often then not implement features that people ask for.

However, providing support for the forum is something we do as a means of making money, since we don't make money by charging you a license for using the forum. Heck, most companies who sell you their software, still don't offer the support for free...

If you don't have time/interest in learning the forum's internals or HTML to be able to make the changes you need, please consult our services page Smile

You want to see some dollars for a small hint? Thank you for this clear statement. I was looking for an alternative forum solution for phpBB in our intranet environment and planned to evaluate FUDforum, but meanwhile (after your statement) I think it is better to stay with phpBB and enjoy the excellent support for it.

Personally I don't see the big deal about it.

Version 2.5.x is still available for download so it's worth a shot to download that, take the drawmsg.tmpl from there, stuff it into a 2.6.x forum, recompile the theme and see what happens. Chances are the templates are fully compatible so if they are then things work just fine - and in the case that they're not it should only take very minor tweaking to make the 2.5.x template work with 2.6.x =)

I do understand Ilia's point of view perfectly: be glad you get such a superb software for free - I sure as hell will never use phpBB as long as I can use FUD.

Unfortunately it seems that there is no other support forum where I could ask "for free" and I am sure not the one who is rather asking before of doing Wink Ilia´s answer was just a surprise for me because I thought this board is an official support board for FUDforum. It seems that I was wrong, because me current impression is rather "paying before asking" Shocked

We support people who encounter genuine problems through the usage of the forum, we don't offer free support to people who want a solution given to then without doing any work themselves.

The nature of open source is that everyone has access to the code and consequently can make any modifications they desire. It most certainly does not mean free development to address your needs by other people.

How to ask questions the smart way.

http://www.catb.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html#before ->
Quote:

When you ask your question, display the fact that you have done these things first; this will help establish that you're not being a lazy sponge and wasting people's time. Better yet, display what you have learned from doing these things. We like answering questions for people who have demonstrated that they can learn from the answers.

Never assume you are entitled to an answer. You are not; you aren't, after all, paying for the service. You will earn an answer, if you earn it, by asking a question that is substantial, interesting, and thought-provoking — one that implicitly contributes to the experience of the community rather than merely passively demanding knowledge from others.

I wouldn't exactly call those two W3C pages "manuals". While I use them as a reference, most people will not understand them because they are written for technical people. They are mostly helpful to technically inclined web developers and web browser developers.

Manual, directions, specifications - whatever you call it, it's the definitive reference for how to use HTML and CSS and http://W3.org is where it's located.

For those who need it written at a lower grade-level, here's a good tutorial site geared towards beginners:

Here is my code of message_entry in drawmsg.tmpl for message layout like in 2.5:
<tr><td class="MsgSpacer">
<table width="100%" cellspacing=0 cellpadding=0 class="MsgTable">
<tr>
<td class="MsgR1 vt al MsgSubText"><a name="msg_num_{VAR: m_num}"></a><a name="msg_{VAR: obj->id}"></a>{TEMPLATE-DATA: msg_icon}{VAR: obj->subject}{TEMPLATE-DATA: rpl}</td>
<td class="MsgR1 vt ar"><span class="DateText">{TEMPLATE: dmsg_post_date}</span> {TEMPLATE-DATA: prev_message}{TEMPLATE-DATA: next_message}</td>
</tr>
</table>
<table width="100%" cellspacing=0 cellpadding=0 class="MsgTable">
<tr>
<td class="MsgR2" width="25%" height="100%">
<table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="2" height="100%" class="ContentTable">
<tr><td class="msgud">{TEMPLATE-DATA: online_indicator} {TEMPLATE-DATA: user_link}</td></tr>
<tr>{TEMPLATE-DATA: avatar}</tr>
<tr><td class="msgud">{TEMPLATE-DATA: dmsg_tags}</td></tr>  
<tr><td class="msgud">{TEMPLATE-DATA: dmsg_user_info}</td></tr>
<tr><td class="msgud">{TEMPLATE-DATA: dmsg_bd_il}</td></tr> 
<tr><td class="msgud">{TEMPLATE-DATA: dmsg_im_row}</td></tr>
<tr><td class="msgud">{TEMPLATE-DATA: host_name}</td></tr>
<tr><td class="msgud">{TEMPLATE-DATA: ip_address}</td></tr>
<tr><td height="100%">&nbsp;</td></tr>
</table></td>
<td class="MsgR3" height="100%">
<table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" width="100%" height="100%">
<tr><td height="100%" valign=top>
{TEMPLATE-DATA: msg_body}{TEMPLATE-DATA: drawmsg_file_attachments}
{TEMPLATE-DATA: modified_message}{TEMPLATE-DATA: signature}
</td></tr>
<tr><td>{TEMPLATE-DATA: report_to_mod_link}</td></tr>
</table>
</td></tr>
{TEMPLATE-DATA: message_toolbar}
</table></td></tr>

I don't think it is optimal, but it just works for me.
Also dmsg_location would be changed to:
<br /><b>{MSG: location} </b><br>
{FUNC: (strlen($obj->location) > $GLOBALS['MAX_LOCATION_SHOW'] ? substr($obj->location, 0, $GLOBALS['MAX_LOCATION_SHOW']) . '...' : $obj->location)}

for decreasing width of location string to fit it in left column
Width of left column could be changed from 25% to another acceptable value.

Hi Dennisp,

thank you very much for posting your code! This works for me perfectly and I'm happy again! Smile

I had to change the code in one line from "{TEMPLATE: dmsg_post_date}" to "{TEMPLATE-DATA: dmsg_post_date}", because FUDforum complained about TEMPLATE: being unknown. But after that, everything worked. Smile

Thanks and greetings from Munich!

Dennis, I tried your code and get the following errors on my board:

----------------

Notice: Undefined variable: dmsg_post_date in /var/www/html/arsenalw/fudforum/theme/default/tree.php on line 442

Notice: Undefined variable: buddy_link in /var/www/html/arsenalw/fudforum/theme/default/tree.php on line 453

Notice: Undefined variable: ignore_link in /var/www/html/arsenalw/fudforum/theme/default/tree.php on line 457

----------------

Any ideas why this is? - You can see the board at http://www.awimb.com/fudforum/

Cheers

Chris

Chris,
I am not getting the same error message as you posted. I visited your site. I also noticed that you have changed the theme on your site. It appears that you have done some changes to other parts of the code which I am not familiar with. You might have made a small mistake somewhere thats causing it to error out with the error message that I am getting now on viewing a post on your site.

FYI, the code I posted was done on 2.6.8
I just tried it on 2.6.9 and it seems to work fine.
BTW ikemuc, the change "{TEMPLATE: dmsg_post_date}" to "{TEMPLATE-DATA: dmsg_post_date}" does not work for me, i.e. I set it to Template: dmsg_post_date beacuse thats what it was at first and that works for me. I wonder why you would be getting that error that it does not recognize that variable...maybe Ilia can help..
ikemuc which version are you using?

Chris I noticed that you are using 2.6.9 on your site. The code i posted should be working fine unless you modified code elsewhere that might have affected it.

BTW, the two variables: {TEMPLATE-DATA: buddy_link} and {TEMPLATE-DATA: report_to_mod_link} have been split up. It was originally {TEMPLATE-DATA: dmsg_bd_il}. Thsi variable combines both of them into one. I did not like them like that and therefore I split them up..actually it was not me who split them...., they have been defined individually elsewhere, I just called them by their individual names Smile.
According to the errors you posted, it means that those split variables are undefined in your theme or src for some reason. did you do vast modification?

Chris, Copy and paste the code again. I changed the {TEMPLATE-DATA: dmsg_post_date}" back to "{TEMPLATE: dmsg_post_date}. Also, after you have copied the code, if you get the same errors you can re-combine the ignore user and buddy list link. Delete {TEMPLATE-DATA: buddy_link} and {TEMPLATE-DATA: report_to_mod_link} and in any one of the places insert {TEMPLATE-DATA: dmsg_bd_il}. That should hopefully fix it. I still don't understand why it would work for me and not for you. Weird. Anyhow. Best of luck,
regards
Dennis

Here is the message entry code that makes a message look more like the pre 2.6 ver of FudForum.
Tested with Ver 2.6.11 Final

Version 2.7 seems to no longer have "message_entry" in drawmsg.tmpl. Where has the message layout gone?

Edit: D'oh! Never mind -- it shows up in my "default" template set, but not in the test set I created. I will try recreating the test template set.

addendum: update was successful. Sebastian_T's code above is functional in V2.7.0RC1

Here is my candidate for a side-format message_entry template. Seems to work well so far with V 2.7.1.

edit: "ContentTable" class in sub tables was messing up page format -- removed

FUDforum version 2.8.1 has two additional themes (user_info_left & user_info_right) that can be used to display member info to the left or right of posts.
