Group Rank Hack Install problem!

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

DO NOT give out any FTP passwords to anyone! There is no reason to do so! If you need help badly enough, create a temporary FTP account that is restricted to only the files that you need help with and give the information for that. Giving out FTP information can be very dangerous!

Ok, let's try to pinpoint the file causing the problem. Create a tmp folder in your admin directory and move the admin_ranks.php and admin_users.php files out of the admin directory into the tmp subfolder. Then check to see that your ACP navigation panel is now displaying. Then you can move one of the files back from the tmp folder into the admin folder and see what happens. If the ACP Navigation still works, then the problem is in the other file...

Otherwise, move the first file back to the tmp folder and move the second file back to the admin folder and see if the ACP Navigation panel is working. It is possible that the problem is in BOTH files, so we need to know for sure...

This was caused by another dumb error in one of the included files from this MOD. This is why I almost always shy away from installing Alpha and Beta MODs. This MOD claims to be a Beta MOD, but based on the errors we have found so far, this is definitely an Alpha MOD...

So this is what I did to correct this problem:

OPEN
includes/functions_mg_ranks.php

FIND

Code: Select all

ranks_sql['bannedrow'][] = $db->sql_fetchrowset($result);
REPLACE WITH

Code: Select all

$ranks_sql['bannedrow'][] = $db->sql_fetchrowset($result);
I am surprised that your site isn't displaying parse and other errors whenver an error is encountered. You might want to ask your host if there is a setting that you can turn on to display all errors on your site. These blank page errors are going to cause you a lot of time and trouble trying to determine where each error originates from...

There is a MOD by kooky called the Username Color Mod. I don't know if that's the same as the Advanced Username Colour MOD or not. I have a copy of it on my PC but I have never installed it on my board. I don't know anything about it other than it came from the phpBB MOD Database. I can make it available to you if you want it. I don't know if I have the latest version of the MOD though...

After reviewing this MOD, I don't think it is the one you are looking for unless you are only interested in adjusting colors for the Admin and Moderators. This is the MOD Description:
This mod will show username into viewtopic with profile link and color rank (only ADMIN or MOD). Guest users haven't profile link. if the viewing user has admin rigths then the link redirect to the administration profile panel of that user. Also add user's color rank everywhere (index, viewforum, memberlist...) You can easily add other color rank, e.g. with fontcolor4...
