Installation:
Before installing, copy 'ubbc.js' and 'yabbc.js' to cgi-bin/yabbdirectory/ - Make sure you re-upload them to their correct directory - html_root/yabbfiles.

Modify YaBB files using BoardMod or manually.
Load modified files to your server.  

Add the following code to your Style Sheet
Code
Select All
.otfieldset {
	font-size: 12px;
	font-weight: normal;
	font-style: normal;
	font-family: Verdana, Helvetica, Arial, Sans-Serif;
	color: #304B58;
	border: 1px #34689A solid;
	width: 90%;
	padding: 4px;
}

.otlegend {
	font-size: 12px;
	font-weight: bold;
	font-style: normal;
	font-family: Verdana, Helvetica, Arial, Sans-Serif;
	color: #304B58;
	text-align: left;
}
 



Note: If you want to install this Mod and the Spoiler Tag Mod, Install the Spoiler Mod first, then install the 'Off_Topic_Tag_V_1_1_ForSpoiler.mod'.
That will tidy the input and textarea fields up a bit too.

There may be a minor graphical problem with this.

I installed the mods, used the version that was for use along with the spoiler mod, and everything works nicely, but on the post section, the off topic button is -mostly- hidden under the spoiler button. I can only see something like 3 or 4 pixels of it sticking out underneth the questionmark button.

I have verified that the images have been uploaded in binary, and that they have been CHMODed correctly.

Can be seen at the forum at www.jonbatchelor.com/cgi-bin/gkyabb2/YaBB.pl, which currently allows guest posting, since it is only in the testing phase.

Any guesses as to where the problem might be?
Other than this small issue, it seems to work great, and I really like it.


OK, it is all better now. I have no idea how or why. For a whil it was showing up badly, then it just started showing up properly ... but it works now, so everything is perfect, and this is really cool!
  

Improving my forum, one mod at a time!


Now up and running again, with an accurate link.

This works with YaBB 2.3.1 - No updated needed. I have included a new .mod file to make it compatible with the Spoiler Mod though.

If the spoiler mod is already installed, then you need to install the spoiler compatible mod: Off_Topic_Tag_V_1_1_ForSpoiler-231.mod

Is this what you are trying?

What other mods do you have installed, and which steps is it failing on?
