First topic message reminder :

NEW UPDATE : Attachments and global announcements!


Hello,

In order to continuously improve our services and to bring you the best in the world of forums, we offer you today a new update that will add two brand new features. Very Happy

Without making you wait longer, here are the contents of this update:




1. Global announcement: Indeed, in addition to the normal post,post-it and stickies, now you can make global announcements in your forum.
Unlike a normal post, the overall listing is automatically applied in all the forums in your forum in one go! A real time saver for admins Wink
As for the normal post, the wording of the overall text is customizable via the admin panel.



This gives on your forum:



You will find all the explanations needed on this new feature in THIS TUTORIAL!


2. Attachments: An innovative feature that allows you to attach files to messages on a topic of your forum.
The forum admin has the option to enable or disable attachments on the forum and the distribution of storage space between the attachments and gallery on the one hand, and between members and moderators of the forum on another hand.
Many extensions are supported and total management is possible directly via the admin panel, transforming the forums in real trade platforms for the happiness of its members.



On the forum, it gives:

  • Before sending the attached file:



  • After sending the attached file:



You will find all the explanations needed on this new feature in THIS TUTORIAL!


Important:Admins with custom templates on their forums like phpBB2 or PunBB must necessarily consider the following changes on the templates



Finally, A big THANK YOU to the entire Forumotion community for all those brilliant ideas! : thumleft:

See you soon with other ideas!

Best,
Forumotion Team

If you have edited your posting_body.tpl
the new update won't be in place.
Load the default and edit it with your customizations

Also a lot of people use the blog on their forums... so to add the attachement to your blog :

After : {postrow.displayed.MESSAGE}

in posting_body.tpl i can't find {postrow.displayed.MESSAGE}

So I ask again, if I buy more storage space with my credits, are they going to stay forever (example 500MB), or will it get deleted after some time (maybe a month or two, as before with gallery space)

I've reported this to techs.

It works the same way as it was working before.

If it gets deleted shouldn't it be displayed in Misc > Spend Credits > Space

I only have options to add more space, none of them has its time period :/

When you buy space, by default it's valid for one month.
You can add more space after, when you've bought at least one month.

To change the style of your attachment boxes here are a few CSS classes you can paste to the END OF YOUR CSS.

admin panel-> display -> colors -> css tab

go to the bottom of your css
hit enter then paste this
Code:
.attachbox {
color: #fff;
background-color: #000;
border: 1px solid #333;
}
.attachbox a:link {
color: #123455;
}
.attachbox a:hover {
color: #123456;}

explaination:
.attachbox is the box surrounding the attachments

color: #fff; is the color of the font
change the hex code to pick your best color for the text

background-color: #000; - if your attachments background is the same color as the posts just add a different color to the background.

border: 1px solid #333; - you can also add a border to the box, just change the color. If you don't want a border change 1px to 0px.

Optionally you can add after the "border: 1px solid #333;" hit enter and add
margin-top: 15px; to make the space between your post and the attachment bigger.


the other to classes are for the links.
If the links are invisible on your posts you can change them:
the color class under a:link is the link color and the color a:hover is the hover color of the link

you can change the hex color code to change the colors of the links.

Sorry not happy with this, I am thinking of turning the flipping thing off, it's no good as it is with members having to download the file to their PC to view and today we have had our first member use it, to upload a photo, the numpty. He has sucessfully uploaded photos before using an image host. It's going to be more trouble than it is worth.
And the knock on effect of the update with the post preview is an absolute pain. Sorry guys, but that's how I feel.
