Hack info

What does it do? - If you have alot of hacks installed, but dont want to fill your Footer Template up with all the hack credits, this is ideal for you:) Simply install, and fill out the information, and you dont ever need to wonder what hacks are installed, or to credit them again:)

Cool! Looks good. Will install it later:) Thanks

Can`t see the point with this.. Who are putting credits for hacks in the footer template?? The only credit the authors gets from me are the one they put in their hacks themselfes. That should be enough I think.....?? Or maybe I have misunderstood something here...? Are we supposed to put a credit for every hack we have installed in the footer template? Not many peoples does this, thats for sure...

@partang2 - Some hacks ask you to put credits in the footer template...

This simply is a way of removing that, and having a Credit based system:)


13 Dec 2002, 20:41
Ok, I see... Then this hack may be a good one after all! Will have a look at it right now.

It also can double as a "hack reminder" scheme - If you have installed all sorts of hacks, this can act as a list of the hacks you have installed, and therefore can help you try and locate them once again!:)

It can also be used to let your user's know about what hacks are installed:)

I noticed:)

The hacks that are currently there cannot be edited or deleted:)

This is because I want to preserve them as they are;)

No problem Herman:)

News update

I am going to release v2.0 very soon!:)

The templates are pretty much the same, except for a bit of "intelligent" coding...

Now, if you dont enter any of the following information, it doesn't display a link:

hack thread
author contact
author website

v2.0 will include a new query to run (to add the "Hack Credits" hack to the database), and a small template modification for the updating people:)

There are no changes to the admin script:)

I cant add anythink LoL

I used a vBhackmaker file to do this, so you will need vBhacker - Im not sure if I did it right;)

Ignore the "file changes" part - I had to put something so it would allow me to make it:(


15 Dec 2002, 16:37
Hey, sometime, that is, when I get the time, I'll help you with templates, why don't u contact me on AIM? Herman Nation is my screen name!

The so-called "intelligent" coding I used screwed up:D

Who are the 2 idiots who rated this thread 1??????
For those who voted 1, if you're such a smart ass and think this hack is worth 1, why don't you write a better one???
I think thread rating is really bad and it should be taken down by administration. Is frustrating for someone who make a hack and spend time on his work to see his sweat rated 1.

I have a new template design done by somebody if they want me to post it:)


21 Dec 2002, 18:33
I don't know if I want everyone to know what hacks I have installed on my forums ...

But otherwise, this is a good piece of work!
