YaBB Mods Forum - it's back!
Feb 21st, 2010 at 4:35am
Post Tools
Almost 6 years ago i shut down my YaBB Mods Forum due to lack of time and motivation. Now i've got a little time on my hand to play with a online forum again. I took a 2.4 - ripped it apart and put it back together again - so, if nothing else, at least it's different. Have a look and bomb away...

http://www.carsten-dalgaard.dk/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl



Here's a list of some of the tweeks and mods (so far):

Tweeks:
  • Title bar for Quote and Edit boxes and timestamp in edit box
  • Title bar with 'Select All' button for Code boxes
  • Different max. sizes for avatars in posts and profile
  • Login area replaced with new small Login/Register area at top of all pages.
  • User info aligned horizontally in posts.
  • Combined 'board icons' and 'new post' indicator.
  • The way you select/remove a member in the Search page "By User" field
  • Descriptive text inside the "Quick Search" field and "Search by Name or Email" field in Memberlist
  • Text removed from title bars when a category is collapsed
  • Previous/Next topic links turned into arrow-buttons showing the name of the previous/next topic in the label
  • Buttons without icons (CSS Buttons)
  • Attachments (only .zip) from topic posts automatically attached to the Ratings post ('Downloads' on this forum)
  • Changed the layout of Message Index and Message Display page
  • Changed the layout for the Post/Reply page. Especially the Preview/Live Preview layout to reflect the changed layout for Messages

Mods:
  • YaMMS - Member Map and Memberlist extensions
  • Ratings - For rating any kind of items (on this forum 'Downloads' and tweeked to hold attachments automatically. Will be implemented in a later version)
  • Chat CE - Chat Box
  • CSS Buttons - Soft coded buttons to create new button sets using only two graphics
  • Online Activity - Se what users are doing on the forum
  • Syntax Highlight - Implementation of 'shjs' to format code
  • Quick Table - Quick and easy way to create complete tables in messages and PM's
  • Number Format - Let members set their preferred number format in Profile Settings - Options
  • UK Time Format - Adding UK format to the time selection options (day before month)
  • TeX in YaBB - Converts TeX code to math equations in messages and PM's
  • Post Graph - Graphic presentation of members topics and replies
  • Image List - Use small images as list 'icons'
  • Visit Counter - Counting visitors on your forum - in real time. Graphic display.
  • Context Help - Right click on ubbc buttons to get help

I like it @ Carsten 2 things one is the links bar goes full width of screen, this you may still be on with??

secondly the Blue text in the help section is a little hard to read.

Really like the grey shading.

Looks good enough to eat  Wink

Very Nice!

I liked the member map a lot.  Cool

Looks great, works seamlessly...  easy to dance to.

OK where are the Star Smileys?   Wink

Cheesy



  

I find your lack of faith disturbing.

Yep - it has to do with the rest of the site (coming soon). For some reasons i need to have different width of the pages - the button bar will be the stable "common denominator".

had not gotten to that yet - you know, i'm so clever i do things without ever reading the manual  Cool
It's dark red now.

Hi Carsten,

Great to see YMF's return, it looks good too!  Very clean and smooth.

The old YMF is where I got some of my first Y1.x mods. Smiley
