YaBB Zodiac V1.1 for 2.2.3

YaBB Zodiac
V1.1 beta

This Mod was oroginally coded by Spikecity for 2.1, all I have done is update it for 2.2.3 - Thanks to Spikecity for letting me update it.

Link to original Mod: http://www.boardmod.org/yabb/YaBB.pl?board=beta_y2;action=display;num=1183631387

This mod shows the zodiac sign in the users profile (both in view profile as text as in the thread as an icon) if the birth date is filled out.

Installation:
Apply the mod, upload the changed Load.pl, Display.pl, Profile.pl, display.template
Upload the new Zodiac.pl into /Sources and chmod equal to the other pl files
Upload Zodiac.lng in the correct language dirs (english, dutch and german supplied)
Upload the dir holding the zodiac gif icons including the dir into public_html/yabbfiles/ModImages

Testing:
Go to any user with a filled out birth date and the zodiac sign should be shown as text in the profile view.
Go to any thread where users have their birth date filled out and the zodiac sign should be visible as icon (with a alt/title tag having the text version)

Screenshots:

I'd forgot to add it to the old 2.1 template... I've updated the first post.

Is someone of you an Zodiac Expert ?
One user in my forum is born on 20th January, and the mod shows her Aquarius (this date is also in wiki) , but she insists, she is a Capricorn (right word for Steinbock in English?), so i looked the internet, and in fact, many sites tell, Aquarius is starting on 21st.

Mhm, now i am confused ...

Erm, yes, I'm pretty sure that Aquarius does start on the 21st... I should be able to fix this... I'll take a look later today...

Right, that should be fixed now... I've got a rather old book 'The Complete Book of Fortune' and in there it says that all signs go from 21st - 21st, so this is what I've changed them to.

I've updated the zip file in the first post.

You do not have to install the Mod again, just overwrite Sorces/Zodiac.pl... That is the only file that has been changed...

Let me know if you think anything needs changing...

I'll take a look when I get chance, but I can't promise anything because Chinese Signs go by years so it would mean totally modifying the Mod.

Just wondering aloud... should the Chinese Zodiac Signs be a seperate but compatible mod?  So an admin could use both.

Or could they both be used at the same time from a single mod?

If I can do it, I'd probably do it as separate but compatible Mods... But, with Chinese new years starting on different dates each year and the general pattern of them, I'm not really sure that it's something that I can even do yet... I will have a play around though...

Grin, I see you got sucked in Derek Smiley

Good luck on modding a Chinese Zodiac thingy, as there is lots of confusion not only on years, but also on change-over dates between signs as you'll probably find out on the net.
One of the reasons I never even mentioned the Chinese one Tongue
  

Nothing to add here Smiley

Ha, I know what you mean Spikecity... I had a quick look at them last week, being every 12 years and what not... I think I'll try to keep quiet about this one for now and work on something easier. Smiley
