Quick messages under posts

Post by Toucan on June 25th 2010, 10:14 pm

I think I saw this somewhere but I can't seem to find the thread.

Basically, how do you put those quick messages where you just check in and it types in whatever you assigned on it.
For example, I think it was explained in the thread I mentioned in the first sentence,
when Sanket does
"Since this thread appears to be solved, I will lock this thread and mark it as solved.


Sanket Smile "

Hello,

Indeed this is possible only via Template editing, that is, only on PunBB and PHPBB2, but I would like to know one small detail first.
do you want it under both the quick reply box and the extended reply box (that's when you hit the "post reply" button)


EDIT1: I'm working on it, but just have to find the quick reply section to add it - I've been able to find the extended reply location that is best suited to put the reply.

Admin panel >> Display ( Tab ) >> Templates / Post & Private messages > Posting_Body locate this
Code:
&nbsp;<input class="mainoption" type="submit" name="post" value="{L_SUBMIT}" tabindex="6" accesskey="s" />

After it should be this
Code:
</td>
</tr>
</table>

<br /><br />

I found the best place to put the text is in between the br's so it would be like this <br />THIS IS MY MESSAGE UNDER EXTENDED REPLY EDITOR<br />

I've just got the spot for the quick reply, as in your pic if your interested in it too Wink
let us know if you are please.

No I'm sorry but you can't make it only for mods .

I suppose if you do so desire to have text for only mods I could try and locate the mod icons and see if we can add text there, butt hat will require a little more time Wink


Oh yea, don't forget to hit the + after you make the edit and save to the template (instructions above)

mm yummy food did the trick Smile

Alright, it wasnt too difficult seeing as I hate phpbb2 lol

I can get it for mods only, see as its for the mods quick tools
Back to templates > General > Viewtopic_body and take the stroller to the bottom of the page, and get the template in the center of your screen if you can. you should be able to see this code.
Code:
<!-- BEGIN viewtopic_bottom -->
<table class="noprint" width="100%" border="0" cellspacing="2" cellpadding="0" align="center">
   <tr>
      <td colspan="2" align="left" valign="top" nowrap="nowrap"><br />{S_TOPIC_ADMIN}<br />
         <form name="action" method="get" action="{S_FORM_MOD_ACTION}">
            <input type="hidden" name="t" value="{TOPIC_ID}" />
            <input type="hidden" name="sid" value="{S_SID}" />
            <span class="gen">{L_MOD_TOOLS}<br />{S_SELECT_MOD}&nbsp;<input class="liteoption" type="submit" value="{L_GO}" /></span>
         </form>
      </td>
   </tr>
</table>

Feel free to put some text anywhere you wish in there, but if you want it below the drop down selector put your info after </form>

If you want your info before the images put it right underneath
<!-- BEGIN viewtopic_bottom -->

If you want it before the drop down box put it above
<span class="gen">{L_MOD_TOOLS}<br />{S_SELECT_MOD}&nbsp;<input
but make sure you put a <color=red><br /></color> after your text in this case.


I hope this is simple enough Smile

^Thanks a bundle!

Although it's not exactly what I was looking for, it still works the way I want it!


I guess this thread can be locked now.. :wouhou:

It's ok, you have to start somewhere, I was, and still am on a similar slope to you Wink

Do you mean something like showing an example on how to give a member a warning, reminder, ect?
If so, I suppose you could type it in as text.
If you want to colour it use the tag
Code:
<color="#101010"></color> <b></b>
ect
Is this what you mean?

^Not quite.

I only said "if it can be in a box" the fact how text just sitting in the open looks ugly. :/

But it's not a big deal, I can just ignore it.

I believe I've seen it in both tables & boxes, take your pic Smile

I'll have to test my idea in PunBB my preferred version, but don't worry I'll convert it to PHPBB2 for you once I have it accurate.
In either case I'll need to get back to you tomorrow because I won't have much of a chance tonight after work.

Sorry I didn't get a chance last night, I've just done it now Wink

Same location, however, I'd recommend that you use underneith the drop down box, that is under this: <span class="gen">{L_MOD_TOOLS}<br />{S_SELECT_MOD}&nbsp;<input class="liteoption" type="submit" value="{L_GO}" /></span>
Hit enter, and insert this code (Note that this is PHPBB2)
Code:
<br /><br />
<table class="forumline" width="100%" border="" cellspacing="1" cellpadding="0">
<tr><th colspan="{topics_list_box.row.header_table.COLSPAN}" align="center" nowrap="nowrap">Mods messages</th></tr>
<tr><td>Moderator only message here</td></tr>
 
  </table>

Feel free to edit the "Mods messages" and "Moderator only message here" Smile

If you need PunBB coding Prince, I'll give it a shot, but I'll await for your confirmation Wink

It should be appearing just below the quick mod tools.
Can I have a screenshot of that little part please?

exterminator, indeed it is more than possible, with the use of Templates Mr. Green
However, because we only want it for the mods we have to do something so that only mods can see.
Where as if we wanted it where it is in the screenshot, we could do it quite quickly Wink
