[DONE] Random Quotes V1.0

Random Quotes Y2.1

version 1.0

Languages (including tagline datebases)
English
Dutch
German

This mod gives you two new tags that produce random quotes in the language of the poster, or the member.
For in the main template there is the tag <yabb tagline>, for in the signature there is the UBB tag [tagline].

Usage
Actually quite self explanory, you add the appropriate tag where you want it and depending on your language settings it will produce random quotes in the correct language

Installation
Apply the mod, upload the changed YaBBC.pl, Display.pl,Subs.pl, Profile.pl.
Upload the taglines.txt and taglines.dat in the appropriate language dirs and chmod equal to other lng files

Restrictions and Short comings
There is no admin section to edit/add taglines yet.
The taglines.txt as a flatfile plain ascii file holding one tagline per line.
The tagline.dat holds one variable which must be set manually to the number of lines found in the taglines.txt, and it holds the text in front of the quote.
For each language you should have a set of these files, but if no files are found or the user has no language set the taglines will default to the board language set.

Version History
1.0
First release

Installs fine!

But my profile.pl has only the line

Code
Select All
	# do some ubbc on the signature to display in the view profile area
 



not the second comment-line.

And it works fine!

Could you implement in the next version a function to edit the quotes?

Strange as I took the mod anchors from a fresh YaBB2.1 Wink

Next version probably will have an editor of some kind, however (like the english tagline file already has 1300+ lines) this could be quite a long load/save on large files.

I wish I could go to the nascar races, I'm from Canada and the only race that nascar comes to Canada is 1000 miles away. But I will probably have to use your idea and manually make my own list.

I did install this and got rid of the javascript I was using. Now My quotes file has gone from 143 to 1449.

Very nice and thank you.
No issues on install.
