Title: Board Mods (modifications) available
Post by Rad on Mar 25th, 2007 at 5:53pm
This is to let you know (anyone, but primarily the moderators & regulars) that there are numerous "Mods" available:

http://www.boardmod.org/yabb/YaBB.pl#mods_y2 (modified as per John's post which follows).

The site currently uses YaBB v2.1, so I'm guessing any mods created for v2.0 would also work, tho those created for v1.x probably would not.

Their listed top-20 might be a good place to start looking (lower-right corner).

Lemme know if you see any you think would be good to have.

BoardMod is a slick little program that modifies *sections* of code in the original YaBB files, to incorporate various/numerous "mods". I have used it several time previously, with the old (v1.x) forum software.

I was thinking about an admin mod myself:

Nice looking... you sure did your home work before setting up this forum !  Great job !
 A suggestion... the News just under the Date/Time, the black text doesn't show up well...
So.. you might want to consider this YaBB option (MOD) here: http://www.boardmod.org/yabb/YaBB.pl?board=newsy2;action=display;num=1123216847

and also you have the wrong link for YaBB 2.1 (2.0) MODS see the BoardMOD Forum here: http://www.boardmod.org/yabb/YaBB.pl#mods_y2

[edit]Before I leave.. I also noticed you allow Newbies to start Polls ... maybe you should move this up to a new level (after making so many posts, then allowed).  Just a suggestion (a reward for members)[/edit]

Thanks John.

I appreciate all your help.

Will implement your suggestions.

I had changed the fader to white, but it was flickering back to black and became distracting, so I made it black, while I figured out a fix (which you seem to have provided.)

So far, we have 4 mods installed.

1. admin mod, which gives us more control over the board (setting defaults, etc.)

2. news fader mod, which allows us to tweak the news fader, so it looks good in/with the different board templates

3. email mod, which gives us more control over banning spammers, should we get attacked again like we did last spring:


4. advertising mod, which allows ads to be inserted in thread-pages only (not home or index pages) as specified in google policy.

i was also thinking of installing this mod:


which allows us to control the order of stickied threads

this one is a little more work than the others, so i'm hesitant to jump in.
