Need To Make A Simple Edit To Mybb Plugin, Anyone Want To Help?

Discussion in 'Forum Management' started by cscott5288, Jun 10, 2009.

    Ok, so I got the MyBB link exchange plugin: http://mods.mybboard.net/view/link-exchange-plugin
    SEMrush
    and the plugin works great, it's just that it only shows links on the front index of the forum. I want it to show on ALL pages. Can someone edit the plugin for me to do this? I am no php expert unfortunately :(.

    Thanks ahead!

    Hi,

    I can help show you how to "learn by experimenting", are you ready??

    On this line here:

    find_replace_templatesets("index", "#".preg_quote("{\$footer}")."#i", "{\$footer}\r\n{\$lexcange}"); 
    PHP:
    1)
    "index", is the name of the template being changed, and {\$lexcange} is the template variable which displays your links.

    2)
    Let's assume your trying to put the links in the footer of every page...
    ...the next step is easy... :)

    3)
    replace "index", with "footer",
    ...the next step is a bit harder... :p

    4) I would
    a) look in the footer template to pick a spot to place the links
    b) (((This next part isn't hard, you just need to "experiment", !!! you did back up your database, right !!!)))
    c) Here is a simple example...
    <br class="clear" />
    PHP:
    That small code snippet is found in the MyBB footer template, and you want it to look like this

    <br class="clear" />  {$lexcange}
    PHP:
    or if you want extra space, just add a second "break"

    <br class="clear" />  
           <br class="clear" />  {$lexcange}
    PHP:
    ```````
    ```````````

    Here are 4 different ways to do what you are trying to do

    1a) Ask at the site http://www.lowbattery.info
    Oops... :eek:

    1b) Check at the MyBB forum for an English support thread


    Here are the easy do-it-yourself options

    * Find and remove this code in your "index" template
    {$lexcange}
    PHP:
    * Then modify the "footer" template like this

    <br class="clear" />  {$lexcange}
    PHP:
    or

    <br class="clear" />  
           <br class="clear" />  {$lexcange}
    PHP:


    ````````````

    Note:
    The section highlighted in green is an easy solution which should work.

    The plugin can also be modified, but you need to be careful, and deal with all the "escaped stuff" (ie. the parts with backslashes in the PHP code {\$lexcange}, will look different after being inserted into the database.

    *** It's very easy, I was just trying to help teach you about "learning through experimenting." ***

    I hope it works for you.

    If your plugin is activated and this {$lexcange} worked in the index template, then there is no reason why it won't work in the footer.
