Personal Notepad V0.5 for YaBB 2.5

Personal Notepad V0.5

Description:
---------------
This Mod will add a Personal Notepad to the User CP. It's basically just a textarea for members to keep notes on anything that they want to - snippets of code, self reminders etc.

In this version I've made changes so that only the user can view their notes - not even Administrators have access to them. I think this makes more sense seing as it is a "Personal" Notepad.

Credits:
----------
Thanks to Mick (www.info4alien.de) for the German and German_Du Language translations.

Don't know if it is me or the mod, but I don't actually get the personal note pad.

The settings are there, and have been turned on (with the default 2000 character limit) and the menu option is on the CP panel, but when I click on Personal Notepad, nothing appears. There is nowhere to write a note.

I uninstalled and reinstalled, but still, settings there, link there, but no note pad.

If I am doing something wrong, I don't know what it is. (Obviously.  Wink  )

Whoa!!! That's weird - I could have sworn I tested that on a fresh install too.

Anyway, you're dead right. I can't believe that no-one else has mentioned it before.

The strange thing is, the mod file looked as it should do and all the code was where it should be, so if you installed it manually there wouldn't have been any problems. It seemed like BoardMod got a bit confused with some white space or something, so it was adding a blank space where there should have been code.

I've attached a new file to the first post anyhow, can you let me know if that one's any better when you get chance please?

Thanks for telling me...

Just glad to find I'm not crazy.

Afraid it is 2:30 in the morning, and I have to go to work in about six hours, so I will install the new versions of both this and the board rules tomorrow evening (this evening) and test them then.

This time installed perfectly, and everything worked fine. Tested it a bit, and it seems to be doing exactly what it is supposed to.

Same kind of glitch could possibly explain the issue I had with the other mod and one of the steps missing, but again, I'd be surprised that nobody else had mentioned it.

Yeah, I was thinking that. I'll check it out later...

I just installed it on a beta test site of mine - I have also the Topic Description mod installed... seems to be working fine.  Will let you know if I have problems later.
