Nice mod.

Don't you think the external links should have a different icon in the left column, though?

Hi Jet Li

I installed the External_Boardlinks_V1_1a_Boardpass-compatible.mod version. and created the board as instructed. However, although the board is created here and is listed in forum.control & forum.master the board doesn't appear on the board.index page. Setting the password gives the same results.

Did I do something wrong? No errors in boardmod and have uploaded the files twice.

If I remove the http:// then the board appears on the board.index page but just as a normal board without the new link icon.

UPDATE:

I logged Out and it's working ok but login again and its gone ???

Thanks Jet Li

However I had already put the BoardIndex.template into 'default' & 'yabb21'. I wasn't using the folder called 'black' as I had moved all it's files into 'default' and set this as the forums default setting.

All I just did just now was rename the folder called 'black' to something else and your mod started to work correctly.  ???  I have no idea why this should be but it's working now and that all that matters. (User Error  Grin)

Thanks for helping  Smiley

I updated the 'extern.gif' to remove the white around the edges for my black/grey pages.
