No worries. I'm sure you'd have found it yourself - I just happened to be on the computer when Derek posted.

Dandello - The language translations should really be placed into two separate mod files, like:

Quote:
self_delete_lock_3_german.mod
self_delete_lock_3_german_du.mod

You can unpack the User Age in Message View mod if you want to see an example.

If you include them in the main mod file, then the mod will fail to install for anyone who hasn't got the German languages installed.

And if you don't mind another suggestion - usually when we release updates we modify the first post and reattach the file there - It makes it easier for people to find the correct mod file to use. Smiley

How else do I learn? I figure I'll make all my mistakes on the first one, then all the later ones will be perfect Grin

Ah, I've just downloaded the package and noticed that the language patches still aren't correct. The way you've done it, it will try to install the mod again - the only thing that needs to be in the language mod files is:

Code
Select All
<id>
Self_Delete_Lock YaBB2.5
</id>

<version>
0.3 beta
</version>

<mod info>
The YaBB default is to allow users to delete their own accounts.
This mod will allow the admin to choose whether or not users can delete their own accounts.

German and German_Du translations courtesy pyragony

Version History
---------------
0.1 beta - First release - April 25, 2012
0.2 beta - corrected typo - Apr 28, 2012
0.3 beta - German text for Admin.lng - May 1, 2012

For YaBB 2.5 (not tested on 2.4 but it should work).

Instructions:

Apply the mod and upload (in ASCII mode):

cgi-bin/yabb2/Languages/German/Admin.lng

</mod info>

<author>
Dandello, Gizmoya, Astropilot, Eagle_f90 and Mick
</author>

<edit file>
Languages/German/Admin.lng
</edit file>

<search for>
);

%floodtxt=(
</search for>

<add before>
'self_del_user' => 'Benutzer erlauben, ihren eigenen Account zu lˆschen?',
</add before> 


How it is now, the language mod files will fail because they'll search for code which has already been replaced. Think of them more as 'patches' - the only thing they should edit is the language files.

Also note that the author has to be on one line:

Installed using Boardmod no problems.

A couple of minor points see screenshot:

  • SettingsMain ends with 2 pl
  • SettingsMain has a hyphen in the middle
  • cgi-bin/yabb2/Source/Profile.pl (should be sources)




Nice Mod  Smiley
