[2.3.1] ContextHelp 4 YaBB 2.3.1
Feb 2nd, 2009 at 11:29pm
Print Post  
This mod adds context (right click) help to the YaBBC buttons in "post/reply" page and "PM Send" page.

So far ContextHelp will not work in Opera browsers as Opera does not support the javascript 'oncontextmenu' event.

Feb 3rd, 2009 at 7:42pm: Attached new zip package with more compatible .mod file - and at the same time removed the non valid css "cursor: hand;" in Post.pl and InstantMessage.pl

Feb 6th, 2009 at 10:26pm: beta 0.2 - added 'tool tip' to point users attention to the context help.

Feb 7th, 2009 at 10:59am: Fixed small bug in beta 0.2 not passing the Palette title to the context help.

I will try this tonight. Even better than the old mod giving a list of all functions.

Any way to add comments for the mods which add more BBC codes?

Looks quite cool!

Edited:
And speaking of YBBC codes ... will we see the return of glow and shadow? Just wondering.

I had errors in I think step 3 and 8. (probably a mod I installed)
I did a manual install that didn't take long, then I checked it out...
Very nice mod!

Steps 3, 4, 8 and 9 fail for me because of Derek Barnhart's Spoiler and Off Topic mods ... I can see the small changes needed for 3 and 8, but I can't figure out which of several similar places steps 4 and 9 need to go.

Derek Barnhart's Huh Grin

I think steps 4 and 9 are this:

Code
Select All
document.write('<div style="width: 92px; float: left;">'); 


The spoiler/off topic mod, changes those lines to this:

Code
Select All
document.write('<div style="width: 115px; float: left;">');

Oops ... sorry Derek!

Thanks for that! I'll adjust the mod and give this one a try.

I've attached a new zip package to the first post to make the mod more compatible with other mods that adds new yabbc buttons. At same time i've removed the non-valid css "cursor: hand;" in Post.pl and InstantMessage.pl

First version installed with the slight tweaks to fit with Derek's mods, and worked flawlessly.

The slightly transparent background distracted me a little bit, but I've notified my users of this, and will see if it distracts any of them, as well.

A nice thing to see ... should cut down on the experimenting just to see "what does this button do?"

New version bypasses the conflicts, and still works perfectly.

Hi,

German and German_Du ready.

Please include it in your zip-file, Carsten.


Edited:
New zip attached. Found small fault at "Insert List / Sub Item".

It installed with no problems and should be a big help for users that do not understand the pictures.

Thanks for the mod.
