How we supposed to report a problem in the locked thread?

Wondering why that MOD you have won't install correctly? Let's take a look

Don't forget that it may be too long, as well. ;)

As for the problems with CF and phpbb 2.0.6

Some of the finds I also had to modify a little to get them to work and not cause errors, which I didn't document in this post, but, here is the major differences in code to look for.

Had to change the template header to get EasyMod to even recognize it was there to be installed.

Code: Select all

############################################################## 
## MOD Title:       Member Country Flags (aka: Flags)
## MOD Author:      Nuttzy < pktoolkit@blizzhackers.com > (Nuttzy) http://www.blizzhackers.com" target="_blank
## MOD Description: This mod allows your registered board
##                  members to select the flag country of
##                  their residence.  Their flag will then
##                  display thoughout the phpBB system.
##                     
## MOD Version:        2.0.5
This did not work, had to do it by hand

Code: Select all

#
#-----[ COPY IMAGES ]------------------------------------------ 
#
copy flag images to /images/flags
SQL doesn't work yet I know, so this was ignored, no biggy, you know about that already. My question is, is this what you will be looking for when you implement the SQL updates? I have been using SQL instead of ALTER SCHEMA.

Code: Select all

# 
#-----[ ALTER SCHEMA ]------------------------------------------ 
# 
Run flags.sql  - This will setup your db table

Code: Select all

# 
#-----[ OPEN ]------------------------------------------ 
# 
language/lang_english/lang_main.php


# 
#-----[ FIND ]------------------------------------------ 
# 
//
// That's all, Folks!
instead of (Note the comma) -

Code: Select all

//
// That's all Folks!

Code: Select all

# 
#-----[ OPEN ]------------------------------------------ 
# 
includes/usercp_register.php


#
#-----[ FIND ]------------------------------------------ 
#
	$location = $userdata['user_from'];
instead of

Code: Select all

$location = htmlspecialchars($userdata['user_from']);

Code: Select all

# 
#-----[ OPEN ]------------------------------------------ 
# 
admin/admin_users.php


#
#-----[ FIND ]------------------------------------------ 
#
	$location = htmlspecialchars($userdata['user_from']);
instead of -

Code: Select all

$location = $userdata['user_from'];

The find needs a class equal "post" after the input statement - don't want to past html again!

Code: Select all

#
#-----[ OPEN ]------------------------------------------
#
templates/subSilver/admin/user_edit_body.tpl

CF 2.0.5????? Dude, you should get 2.2.0 of CF!! There is a link to it in the EM Announcement topic in the Announce forum. No wonder you had problems :lol: 2.2 has a nice ACP so you can add/remove/modify flags.

Well, you could use the backups EM makes. But if you installed MODs after installed CF then that could cause problems. So probably safest to uninstall manually and then install the new version with EM.

figured as much, thanks. Ill keep you updated on my mods I get installed with this.

One other question - what's the deal with the multiple BBCode mod and EasyMod? The multiple BBCode mod says not to install it if you have EasyMod installed and I really need that mod along with the BBCode Button Organizer Mod?

Oh, I also converted your CF sql to a php install file you can run from your web browser if you want it, here is the link to the zip of it.

http://www.mrstormynights.com/downloads ... nstall.zip You have to do a right click, Save As to d/l it, sorry, I need to fix that but haven't got around to figuring out what is causing it. You can edit this post and delete the link once you have it or if you don't want it, either way.

BBCode MODs are being fixed. Those warnings are outdated now.

Being fixed? so is it safe to use the ones in the mod database? or do I have to wait until new updated versions are released?

Safe to use and install with EM as long as you install the Multi BBCode MOD first.
