View Full Version : Miscellaneous Hacks - Postbit Legacy Redone

Demo: Forum Thread (http://forums.gamerhandles.com/showthread.php/dissidia-final-fantasy-1802.html) or any post on the Forum (http://forums.gamerhandles.com/).

This is a postbit legacy mod, that I actually first created when I had a UBB many moons ago.

This mod essentially frees up the left side of the postbit from its normal clutter and places it in other areas of the post itself. This is important if you have a lot of modifications that put stuff in that area which can cause your posts to look a little too busy.

Installation: This mod requires you to complete overwrite your postbit_legacy template with the included postbit.txt. This package also includes the images that I use on my main forum in case you want to use those to get started.

Make sure to backup your original postbit if you have made any modifications to it that you would like to keep.

Hey mate, I was wondering if you can add a new template to this mod.

Instead of having the edit, thanks, quote, multi_quote and quick reply buttons to the bottom like before and have the member stats at top? it will be viceversa of what you have now.

the problem is that I installed this and in about 10 mins I have 3 complaints telling me that they dont know how to post or they not use to the change.

Thank you mate and nice Mod by the way

Looks great, is this free to use in commercial and non commercial works? (IE My skins)

Really nice modification there!

However, is there any way we can make it so the "user info" is centered.
By user info I mean:
Avatar, usertitle, rank, username

Oh and what font did you use for the images?

Oh and what font did you use for the images?

To make the avatar and all that centered, search for:

<td class="alt2" width="175" style="border: $stylevar[cellspacing]px solid $stylevar[tborder_bgcolor]; border-top: 0px; border-bottom: 0px">

and replace with:

<td class="alt2" width="175" style="border: $stylevar[cellspacing]px solid $stylevar[tborder_bgcolor]; border-top: 0px; border-bottom: 0px" align="center">

The font I used is 04b-24 and you can find that here: http://www.dsg4.com/04/extra/bitmap/

I have a question xD

Would it be possible to center the postbit info and the reply buttons? :) If you could help me out that would be great. Thanks.

Looks great :)

Is there anyway to keep everything in its usual place e.g. edit, quote buttons, and user information.
But just move the ip, messenger, report, status and infractions buttons to the right side???

also, could you include the redcard for infractions as you seem to have missed it out from your file ;)

Many thanks :)

Would be nice if there were multiquote buttons. :/
