ADD GLOW vB Buttons v2.0

I released this once, v1.0, Now i'm releasing it again... But this time I've added tons of new stuff, and made the install file easier to follow...

This will add GLOW vB Buttons... Screen shots attached in next post... If you install... Please click install. I also forgot to mention that this is my 2nd "hack", so tell me what you think... This has been tested by some members, but things could still screw up... DON'T FORGET TO BACKUP! I take no responsibilty for damages... Install at your own risk...

What does it do?
This adds buttons to add a RED, BLUE, GREEN, and ORANGE glowing vb buttons to Newthread.php and newreply.php

Is this really a hack?
YES! It requires queries, file and template edits...

I made it the same as the color option. (check screen)

Yes, you should release it, its better than mine :D

I'm at High School right now, so I can't install. I just emailed this thread to myself so I'll probably remember to install it then. Already clicked install though, because I know I want this one. :P

sometimes you gotta go to the vB code (in admin cp) and click on "use option: no", even though it should be in the MY SQL query...

11 Sep 2002, 19:11

Yes please do:)

Yes, its more compact then mine..

lichtflits, I have also created a drop-down menu like yours, and I used the vbcode_colorbits rather than buttons. I created mine without ever having seen yours, but we have accomplished exactly the same thing.

Since English is my native language, I will release this as a hack, and I will share credit with you, since you had the idea first.

Sound good?
