K, do not know if this is interesting but if it is let me know and I will make a hack-manual...

Throuhg my hack you can add Banners to your subforums. It will add an extra column to your subforum and in your Admin CP you can fill out the image and link to which the image should refer to.

You can do this per sub-forum..see my snapshots...

Let me know what you think...

It's sorta like that "sponsered by" hack release by someone else some time ago. Neat idea :p

20 Sep 2002, 02:20
yup good one, the other only does the main forums...it looks like this does the subforums right?

I think we might try and use it. I'll discuss with partners.. :) looks really nice!

lol one of my members wanted me to do something like this on my forums a little while ago ^^ I might install this. Probably not though.

You can use it on the forumhomepage also!!! You need to do some Template Adjustments...

If you like I can post it here...let me know.

I'd like to add this to the MAIN forums page and the same banners to be used onto the subforums too... but only administered once. Is that possible?

nice idea, but very very useless for me..

I don't understand the function of this hack.

Where in the image example is the banner that has been added??

26 Sep 2002, 07:08
You upload your banner(s) to your image folder on the server!

Then in the control panel you go to modify forums and then on any forum you have you can click on the edit button. Then at the bottem there is the section where you can add you links to the bannerimage and which link the banner should have.
