About
This is my very first vb mod and a simple one at that. There are similar mods for older versions of vb, but not for 4.x yet, so decided to try it myself, and wanted to share.

The modifciation allows admins to post a list of rules or guidelines for users to follow when updating or creating a signature. It is a simple list and does not truely force users to follow the rules listed; however, it is a good reminder right where the user is creating their signature of any rules you may be trying to enforce.

Updates
1.0 Initial Release
1.1 Updated installer to account for vb 4.1.x

Options
1. Up to 10 rules can be displayed
2. Can use a single column list or multi column to display the rules
3. Can change the graphic used as a bullet for the list, by default uses the accept.png located in the images/misc folder

Installation
1. Import the Signature-Rules.xml product file
2. Add a reference to the template in the modifysignature template
to do this edit the modifysignature template and add the following as the first line in the template

I'm very new to vb mods, so I will try and support any issues as best as I can. The mod is very simple so I don't really see issues popping up, but you never know.

Also if anyone has suggestions on what can be done better since I am new please do let me know

Since it's signatures, I don't think it's a good idea to force the rules for those who already have good ones. If they wish to edit it, they would see the new rules, correct? That's all I want. I'll be sure to download this once I get back home, thanks!

A lot can be done with simple template modifications. Just the add-ons makes it a lot easier and simple.

Yes, I love mods that make it so I don't have to make those skin edits everytime I add a new skin.

Yea it can be a template modification, and is not that complex, thus why I chose to do this for my first mod attempt, and I feel I learned a decent amount about how the plugin system works doing it
Also I myself tend to like the plugin system a little better then having to add alot to my templates on my boards and this makes it a little easier on me when/if I need to change my rules I can just go into settings and make an update

And thanks everyone for compliments so far

I apply the mod and configure in Admincp-options-Signature Rules.

Add to template "modifysignature" and "newThread" and does nothing, it shows all the same.

Using Vb 4.0.1

It will not work in any other template then the modifysignature, so the newthread behavior is expected.

Can you verify that under admincp that you do have the mod enabled, and that you have

as the first line of your modifysignature template.

If so can you post screenshots of all 3 locations (options, template, and what a user sees when editing signature)
