This looks great, I cant wait to test it out!

I always have a problem getting the tabmenu and threadmenu links to work... I know it's a little off topic anyone have an idea why I have this issue?

I realize it is unlikely, but any way to resurrect and save previous guest book entries for a board old enough to have Carsten's 1.x guestbook mod?

I can still provide an old guestbook file to see the content if it could help. (I had been hoping to see the guestbook feature come back for years!)

Brian, don't know what you mean exactly. A general problem with the tabs or in connection with the guest book?

I can try it and comparing the old txt file with the new txt file. Maybe there is a possibility (no guarantee). If you want log in to my board and attach the old guestbook data file to any of the threads.

Batchman - I think you're thinking of something different. Wasn't Carsten's Mod a 'Profile Guestbook' for members to leave comments in other member's profiles? This Mod doesn't do that - it's more of a typical Guestbook...

Oh ... so it's a forum guestbook, rather than a member guestbook?

Sorry, guess I completely misunderstood, then! Sorry about that!

(I gotta remember, I'm not as young as I used to be ... I start doing all-nighters, and my brain starts to suffer for it!)

I tried for a few hours, I can't figure out why my bbc buttons aren't working? Anyone else ever run into a problem like this?

They work when you type them in, but not the onclick command ?

Hi.

Don't know, maybe if you use yabb 2.3.1. But comming shortly the guestbook version 0.2 with some changes. I think you can tried this before we take a look why the bb-code is doesn't working bei onclick.

Don't worry, we will fix that.  Wink

(Btw. Also the smilies don't work)

It's because you've removed the quick search box from the top of your forum. I actually have no idea at the minute why ubbc.js would even be apart of that, but this should fix it for you anyway.

In Sources/GuestBook.pl find:

Code
Select All
sub SignGuestBook { 


And add after:

Code
Select All
    $yyinlinestyle .= qq~<script language="JavaScript1.2" src="$yyhtml_root/ubbc.js" type="text/javascript"></script>~;

No worries. It needs adding to the Guestbook by default really because it's only been working because of the search box...

Had to use the

as well.

Works great! Another great addition  Smiley
