Hey,

After having great experiences with FUDforum, we decided to use it in our own. Users have been giving us a lot of requests, and we've gotten through a lot of them already. We're still stuck with some of these though.


Move "Home" button to left

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.



Move "Home" button to left , In 3.0.2 title acts as a home button and is aligned to the left already but you can realign the templates, I'm just not sure how off hand.

The user menu's can easily be aligned from the forums CSS around line 61!

div.UserControlPanel {
    margin-bottom: 5px;
    text-align: right;


Set the control panel to align how you want.

Thank you. That has all been a great help.

I'm also having adding a link+image in the top menu (Home, Logout, User CP). The link it going to an outside page. I went into usercp.tmpl, and added:

&nbsp;&nbsp;<a class="UserControlPanel nw" href="linkgoeshere" title="The Vault"><img src="{THEME_IMAGE_ROOT}/top_vault.png{DEF: img_ext}" alt="The Vault" /> </a>


The image isn't showing, so the text is coming up, making the link useable, but what is the proper way of doing that, where the image will also show?

I'm not sure I follow, but viewing the image info in the user CP above tells me that the path for the images used is:
http://fudforum.org/forum/theme/default/images/top_help.png

So I imagine that the path for your image link would be the same, however you would need to ensure it was in the proper place within the theme so it does not get over written when the themes are rebuilt and you would want to ensure they are added to each of your different themes if you have them.

Generally putting it in the default theme should work.

Thanks. The problem with the image was the file extension. The image was a .png, and I assume it was going for the default file extension of the forum, .gif. Now my problem is the text. None of that shows up. Here is the code I'm using there now:

&nbsp;&nbsp;<a class="UserControlPanel nw" href="linkhere" title="The Vault"><img src="{THEME_IMAGE_ROOT}/top_vault.png" alt="The Vault" /> </a>

If your path is correct I don't think the image type is an issue.

What does DEF and MSG refer to in the code?

Also, we have 3 administrators, and 100 members. In the Admin CP, it says administrators are 0.03% of all users, when they are really 3%.

Some other things users have mentioned:

- Preview of post in email notifications.
- Poll result graphs get both vertically and horizontally larger. Is it possible to have only horizontal size increase?

From Template Editor:

MSG - reference a message inside the i18n messages file (for example, for English: thm/default/i18n/en/msg).
DEF - A PHP define.

The %administrators is a bug - we will fix it in the next release.

Great, thanks. That's working now. Users are very happy with FUDforum. Thanks for making it available to us!

I don't have much of a background in programming, so I'm really learning as I go along. I'd assume the majority of things left to do are easy fixes though.

The very short list of user requests is here:
- Email notifications off by default
- Post titles --> Smaller Font
- Quote titles --> Smaller Font
- Preview of post in email notifications.
- Poll result graphs get both vertically and horizontally larger. --> Want only horizontal size increase.

Email notifications off by default - You can change that in your global settings in the administration panel.

The HTML tweaks you have to google for.

Poll graph I don't know, mine doesn't get vertically larger.

Won't that turn them off regardless of the users settings?

We're looking to have if off when they register, with the option to turn it on.
