First topic message reminder :

Well I just spend 2 hours on probably the best tutorial for colors and fonts, but because of the lame ass characters limit I couldn't post it in one post.

And it would be confusing for the new member to coherately flow through the tutorial if it was broken up.

dudemanpeace
you do know that code stealing is also a crime

and you are so smart that you don't even know how it works?
if you knew anything about coding you'd know you can't paste javascript into CSS!

If the code was stable, light and efficient I'd make a real tutorial!
But since it isn't I am not, I don't even use the theme changer anymore.

so well done

Adding An Inactivity Warning


Actiavte the announcements. Go to Admin Panel > General > Announcements under Messages and Emails. If you don't want announcements, add the code to the footer (only for administrators with template editing.) Go to Admin Panel > Display > General under Templates > overall footer.

Add this code to your template or announcement.
Code:
<meta HTTP-EQUIV="REFRESH" content="1200; url=http://justcorbin.forumotion.net/Inactivity-Just-Corbin-h3.htm">

Change http://justcorbin.forumotion.net/Inactivity-Just-Corbin-h3.htm to your inactivity page. Also, change the 1200 to the maximum amont of seconds that you want amember to stay on a page.

Now it's time to make your inactivity page. Go to Admin Panel > Modules > HTML pages management under HTML > create.

Just create a warning page. If you want an example, go here > http://www.justcorbin.com/Inactivity-Just-Corbin-h3.htm.
Code:
<HEAD><TITLE>ERROR - Just Corbin</TITLE></HEAD>
<body bgcolor="black"><script type="text/javascript">
 alert("Error..You are inactive. Please follow the security directions on the page below.")
</script>
<P align=center><FONT color=black size=3 face="Courier New"><FONT color=white>If you do not see the dialog box,</FONT><FONT color=white> click </FONT></FONT></FONT><A href='javascript:alert("Error..You are inactive. Please follow the security directions on the page below.")'><FONT color=black size=3 face="Courier New"><FONT color=white>h</FONT><FONT color=white>ere</FONT></FONT></A><FONT color=white face="Courier New">.</FONT></P>
<P><FONT color=black face="Courier New"></FONT>&nbsp;</P>
<P align=center><FONT color=white size=6 face="Courier New">Security Error! Session Timeout!</FONT></P>
<P align=center><FONT color=black size=3 face="Courier New"></FONT>&nbsp;</P>
<P align=center><FONT color=black size=3 face="Courier New"><FONT color=white>You have been on </FONT><A href="javascript:history.back();"><FONT color=white>this</FONT></A><FONT color=white> page for alteast 20 minutes (1200 seconds). This is a security error on Just Corbin. Please relogin to continue to use Just Corbin. If you are not logged in, you may continue to the homepage.</FONT></FONT></P>
<P align=center><FONT color=black size=3 face="Courier New"></FONT>&nbsp;</P>
<P align=center><FONT color=white size=3 face="Courier New"><A href="http://justcorbin.forumotion.net/login.forum?logout"><FONT color=white>Click Here To</FONT><FONT color=white> Logout</FONT></A></FONT></P>
<P align=center><FONT color=white size=3 face="Courier New"><A href="javascript:history.back();"><FONT color=white>Click Here To View The</FONT><FONT color=white> Inactive Page</FONT></A></FONT></P>
<P align=center><FONT color=white size=3 face="Courier New"><A href="http://justcorbin.forumotion.net/"><FONT color=white>Click Here To Contiue</FONT><FONT color=white> The Homepage</FONT></A></FONT></P>


There, you are done! You know have created a system where after a certain amount of seconds, a user from any page will be redirected to your warning page. This is for if someone has been on a page so long tht it seems like they are not on their computer.

I am a little confused, what do you mean by model. All they have to do is make a page to be directed to.

@Eman and Kou,
Why create a tutorial that's so simple to do?

We don't need a rocket scientist to tell us if that's possible or not, fufufu

Plus, we already have Zinex's tutorial already, Wink

And with a limited amount of 127 html pages and lack of files we can use, I don't think a good website is going to get anywhere with this, Split: Member written tutorials - Page 5 Redface

well i've never seen a webpage with more than 127 pages in it unless their hosting a bunch of files. and i didn't see the first tutorial or i wouldn't have made one. and quite frankly its not so simple if its helping people already =/. just because some people know how to do it doesn't mean that others dont master marc. you have to always take that into consideration thats why we make tutorials.

Split: Member written tutorials - Page 5 Empty Update to 'User Ranks'

Post by Rok Tue 1 Sep - 22:52

I would like to give an update for this tutorial (User Ranks)


Code:

[hr]

If you were wondering how to have two different rank titles in one rank (like the screenshot below), then this criteria of the tutorial will show you.
[img]http://i87.servimg.com/u/f87/13/67/77/07/captur39.png[/img]

Firstly, navigate:
[hide][list=1][*] Administration Panel
[*] User and Groups
[*] Ranks Administration -> Ranks
[*] 'Add new rank'[/list][/hide]

Now what you need to do is just add the title of the rank in the '[b]Rank Title[/b]' (like in [url=http://i46.servimg.com/u/f46/11/16/28/43/ranks_11.jpg]this screenshot[/url]). Once you do so, add [b]<br />[/b] or [b]<br>[/b] after the the text you just entered. Then, you just add the second title after [b]<br />[/b] / [b]<br>[/b].
It should look something like this:
[code]Title#1 <br> Title#2[/code]

Heck, you can even add a third rank title:
[code]Title#1 <br> Title#2 <br> Title#3[/code]

What about a fourth title?
[code]Title#1 <br> Title#2 <br> Title#3 <br> Title#4[/code]

The less characters you have in the title, the more you can add. You can even add boldness ( [b]<b>TEXT</b>[/b] ), color ( [color=red]<font color="COLOR">TEXT</font>[/color] ), strikes ( [strike]<strike>TEXT</strike>[/strike] ), italics ( [i]<i>TEXT</i>[/i] ), and other short HTML tags.

Update Tutorial on User Control Panel

Just an update ~ The code should be this, as the tutorial has a few errors.

Code:

[code]
<TABLE border=0 width="100%"><TBODY><TR><TD align=left><p><IMG alt="" src="http://www.iconlook.com/icondb/glaze/16x16/actions/configure.png"><STRONG> Your profile</STRONG> </p><p><A href="URL_GOES_HERE/profile.forum?mode=editprofile" target=_blank>Information</A></p><p><A href="URL_GOES_HERE/profile.forum?mode=editprofile&amp;page_profil=preferences" target=_blank>Preference</A></p><p><A href="URL_GOES_HERE/profile.forum?mode=editprofile&amp;page_profil=signature" target=_blank>Signature</A></p><p><A href="URL_GOES_HERE/profile.forum?mode=editprofile&amp;page_profil=avatars" target=_blank>Avatar</A></p></TD></TR><TR><TD align=left><p><IMG alt="" src="http://www.iconlook.com/icondb/CrystalClear/16x16/apps/kwalletmanager.png"><STRONG> Social</STRONG></p><p><A href="URL_GOES_HERE/profile.forum?mode=editprofile&amp;page_profil=friendsfoes" target=_blank>Friends and Foes</A></p><p><A href="URL_GOES_HERE/memberlist.forum" target=_blank>Memberlist </A></p><p><A href="URL_GOES_HERE/groupcp.forum" target=_blank>Groups</A></p></TD></TR><TR><TD align=left><p><STRONG><IMG alt="" src="http://www.iconlook.com/icondb/CrystalClear/16x16/actions/newmsg.png"> Private messages</STRONG></p><p><A href="URL_GOES_HERE/msg.forum?folder=inbox" target=_blank>Inbox</A></p><p><A href="URL_GOES_HERE/msg.forum?folder=sentbox" target=_blank>PM sent</A></p></TD></TR><TR><TD align=left><p><IMG alt="" src="http://www.iconlook.com/icondb/bnw/16x16/apps/kthememgr.png">&nbsp;<STRONG>Other</STRONG></p><p><A href="URL_GOES_HERE/search.forum?search_id=watchsearch" target=_blank>Topic is being watched</A></p></TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE>
[/code]

Just replace URL_GOES_HERE with your forum's url, but remember, do not place the forward slash at the end. ie. http://forumname.com , not http://forumname.com/ .

How to Hide Default NavBars


Have you wondered how some forums got rid of one navigation bar or more? Well, find out here!

Step 1: Go to Admin Panel => Display => Pictures and colors => Pics management => Advanced Mode

Now, where you see the words going vertical "Home," "Portal," "Calendar", etc. , to the right of that you see a URL. Choose one or more of the navbars you want to remove and remove the URL from it/them. But whatever you do, DO NOT remove the Home, Profile, New Message, No new message, Log in, or Register buttons. That may cause chaos in your forum
Then scroll down and press Save.

Step 2: Go to Admin Panel => Display => Homepage => Headers & Navigation

Now, remember those navbars you remove the URL from, and then find it in the "Menu" part of the Headers & Navigation page. When you find the navbars, press Split: Member written tutorials - Page 5 Bas and keep pressing it on the same navbar until it is all the way down; same with all the navbars URLs you removed previously.

Step 3: Look at your forum. You're done!

cman I love your confirmation message when ever you try to navigate away from the post window but I was wondering if it is possible some way to disable the pop-up from coming up when ever you press the preview, or send buttons. It always comes up and frankly it is a little annoying. But often I click on another link or accidentally click back on my browser when typing so I love when it shows up then. I was just wondering if this is possible.

I was wondering if we are allowed to translate a tutorial on another forumotion support forum (ex. French Support Forum) as long as we give credit to the member that posted it originally. I have been noticing a few neat tutorials on other support forums that I think would be good for our English members to have access to.

I don't see how that could harm this forum. I have seen some tutorials in the tutorials section posted by someone else, and then given credit to the original coder who made it.

dotDavid: What would the difference be?
As far as I can tell the major difference between your code update and the code already posted by the tutorial creator is that your code is in HTML and the tutorial has BB codes but other then that I don't see much of a difference. If your code will make a bigger difference in the way the Profile widget is displayed then please include a screenshot in your update so that everybody can see the end result of your code Wink


For the translated tutorials: Yes, you can translate a tutorial from another support forum and post it here but you must give credit to the original author and add your name as the translator. Example:

"Written by (The original author of the tutorial)
Translated by (Your name)"

Also if a tutorial has been updated on that forum multiple times then you must include that as well. Example:

"Written by (The original author of the tutorial)
Updated by (Name of the person who updated it)
Translated by (Your name)"

@Luky, the original writter had made a few layout errors, not adding &nbsp; and made the links like http://forumname//profile..... The double slash would have given an error. If you refer to the image provided, the corresponding code would not have given that result. That is why I went through it carefully, editing any bits of code that would not have given the result of the image.

I believe the image should correspond with the code, and if not, it would be a misleading tutorial. Have you tested the bbcode version? Its full of errors when changing the url to your own forums.

Please re-review it Smile

I believe its spelled "folks" and maybe you should add something like: "Bots collect information and index it on major search engines." and something like: "There are many types of bots that roam the web, however, the most common are the sider bots, which are mainly used for web server analyses and file data collecting".

Thanks for that david Smile

I covered the "Bots collect information and index it on major engines" part under each recognised but by saying "he's just referencing your forum for their database."

My quick definition from wiki also talk's about spider bots, which covered that ground as well.

Thanks for pointing all that out david, much appreciated Very Happy
