subsilver2 hyper link usernames to profile?

Post by gorepitdotnet » Sun Feb 08, 2009 8:31 pm

Im not sure if this is just my forum, but when im looking at in topics, you cannot click peoples usernames in posts to go their profile. It only ever works when you click their name on hte forum index as the last poster in a specific board.

Is there a MOD or anything to change this? Thanks!

Code: Select all

<b class="postauthor"<!-- IF postrow.POST_AUTHOR_COLOUR --> style="color: {postrow.POST_AUTHOR_COLOUR}"<!-- ENDIF -->>{postrow.POST_AUTHOR}</b>
Replace with

Code: Select all

<a class="username-coloured" <!-- IF postrow.POST_AUTHOR_COLOUR --> style="color: {postrow.POST_AUTHOR_COLOUR}"<!-- ENDIF --> href="{postrow.U_PROFILE}">{postrow.POST_AUTHOR}</a>

check the little globe thingie below my avatar.

I can check your forum from here if you supply the url.

It should be a simple and painless procedure followed by years of enjoyment (well, perhaps we'll see about that for subsilver2 in the future). ;)

well you've made the code change (you could put <b></b> around that line change if the usernames are not solid enough but lets get the board showing it first).

go to ACP -> STYLES .. Templates and hit | Cache | inline with subsilver2. tick the box next to ./../styles/subsilver2/template/viewtopic_body.html and hit Delete marked. You could check the cached time in there to see if refreshing your board template actually worked yesterday.

browse to a topic (refresh your browser as well) and see if that shows up. If not then I can only scratch the needed spot to think of why not.

Go into your cahce folder via FTP and delete this file

tpl_subsilver2_viewtopic_body.html.php

then revisit a topic and see if it works then.
