This mod adds a "Charboard" for inserting special characters in posts and PM's. Admin can create new "Charboards" for any special need from Admin Center.

Edited:

If you knock your head against a brick wall and hear a hollow sound, it's not necessarily coming from the wall.

Really nice idea! There are always people in my board asking how they can create the "Copyright"-Sign.

That will be done with this Mod.

But I have installed and I can not see the characters on each key of the keyboard. Sad

Can't you see the characters on the "Greek" and "Math" boards or can't you see the characters on new boards?

To add/edit keys in Admin Center you must first select the key by clicking the radio-button under that key - then enter the characters decimal code (169 for the copyright sign) or the character itself in the 'Character' field and a descriptive text in the 'Description' field and then click the Add button.

I'll add a descriptive text in Admin Center in the next beta version.

I have done just as you have mentioned. Except that the copyright-symbol is 0169.

But I just followed all the steps and I can not see the characters on that keyboard, though it is working, when you want to use it.

Oh, of course I am talking about that keyboard under the reply-box. In Admin-Center I can see everything clearly.

And the problem is with all Layouts. Greek, Math or a new board, I've created.

The characters are not to be seen on that keyboard under the repla-box.

hmm - that's strange. If you would set up a test account on your forum and PM me the login details i could have a look.

Nice work, Carsten.

Installed perfectly, and seems to work perfectly on my forum.

I've asked my users to try it out a little and put it through its paces.

I don't know if I will keep it or not ... depends on if my users think they will ever use any of the additional symbols enough to make it worth while or not, but wanted to help out with testing and making sure everything worked.

And so far it is a charm!
  

Improving my forum, one mod at a time!


Now up and running again, with an accurate link.
