    There are not tos violation. The major drawback is that it install only in the default theme. or else, i think we can install it manually in other themes

    not really a major drawback, just do a little editing and any mod will work on any theme.

    each mod package contains the files to make that particular mod work. one of those files is an install.xml file or maybe its called install.mod
    you'll find them named each way.

    look a this file, its almost self explanatory. and the only files that need editing are the ones in your custom theme folder.

    most likely index.template.php boardindex.template etc.
    some themes have up to 5 files that may need editing, some only 1.

    he wants to view it, this particular xml file has mod install instructions. if you can read it, it tells you whats being changed.

    the ad management mod for instance, it only installs on the default theme, so to use with other themes, you have to edit several files.

    this is part of the xml, it says what code to add where:

    <operation>
            <search position="before"><![CDATA[                            </td>]]></search>
    <add><![CDATA[';
                                //Welcome Ads
                                if (function_exists("show_welcomeAds"))
                                {
                                    $ads = show_welcomeAds();
                                    if(!empty($ads))
                                    {
                                        echo '<td class="windowbg2">';
                                        if($ads['type']==0)
                                            echo $ads['content'];
                                        else
                                            eval($ads['content']);
                                        echo '</td>';
                                    }
                                    unset($ads);
                                }
                            echo ']]>
    </add>
    </operation>
    Code (markup):
    and thats what they wanted to see.

    use notepad, any text editor.

    another way of making it work is using ur FTP
    right click on the folder that contains the forum - go to properties / CHMOD
    and change the permission no to 777 or 755
    and it should work
