I will mention something I have mentioned once before, because I now have a forum where I would specifically use this, if this 'feature' were involved, since it might fit in especially well with the theme of my new forum.

Since the styles used by this mod are simply a difference in color, rather than a difference in layout or anything else, what if it could randomly choose a new style each time it loaded a page. First page you look at is blueberry, next page is strawberry, and so on.

I could see the constantly changing colors as working really well for my dream forum ... just a hint of the psychadelic to go with the crazy dreams.
  

Improving my forum, one mod at a time!


Now up and running again, with an accurate link.

Hi ThM,

A nice useful Mod!

I've noticed a couple of markup errors after installing this today though...

In the edit to the default template you've mixed up divisions and spans:

Code
Select All
		<td class="small" align="left" valign="middle" width="32%" height="23"><div id="yabbclock">{yabb time}</span></td> 


Should be:

Code
Select All
		<td class="small" align="left" valign="middle" width="32%" height="23"><div id="yabbclock">{yabb time}</div></td> 


And:

Code
Select All
		<td class="small" align="center" valign="middle" width="32%" height="23"><div id="yabbclock">{yabb styleswitch}{yabb tempswitcher}</span></td> 


There's no need for the Style Switcher to have the 'yabbclock' id anyway though, so it may as well be removed:

Code
Select All
		<td class="small" align="center" valign="middle" width="32%" height="23">{yabb styleswitch}{yabb tempswitcher}</td> 


And... not really important, but the link to the settings in the ModList edit is pointing to your forum:

Code
Select All
Style Switcher in your <a href=\"http://www.yabbwelt.de/cgi-bin/forum/AdminIndex.pl?action=newsettings;page=main\" target=\"_self\">admin center</a>

I know you have asked, batchman. But sorry, i have no idea how i can build in such a feature. But if anybody (maybe Derek) have an idea, feel free to play with the mod.

I installed the mod, now how do I add new templates?
It says I can do it automatically... I must be missing something.

The Mod doesn't actually include any templates, but it will automatically pick up any templates that you do have (or add). If that makes sense...

Did you save the templates in Template Configuration after you uploaded them?

From the YaBB Codex:

Quote:
Setting up for use:
1. Go to the Admin Center/Forum Layout/Template Configuration screen.
2. In the Configuration box, select the following:
Style Sheet: newtemplate
Images, Header, Board Index, Message Index, Posts, and User CP set to newtemplate if there is a specific file for that template to use, otherwise select default in the pull-down menus.
3. In the "Save As" section, type "newtemplate" (without quotes) in the input box and click the Save button.

Hi Derek, Thanks for the help. I'll try the instructions you posted.
Question: The files are all inside a folder that is named for the template. Do I upload the folder into the respective area it goes into or just the files inside it?

You need to keep the folder structure as it is, so yeah, upload the whole folder to its respective area...
