Well here's my first hack and a rather simple one =)

Not much involved in setting up the hack but it is my first and i think that its a good hack to have on any board

Its been tested on the 2.2.4 and 2.2.1 versions and should work on all the 2.2 versions but to work on the earlier version such as the 2.0.3 coding needs to be changed.

Either way please enjoy its features are explained in the attachment... basically it just adds more admin cp options =D

I'm not sure about this, but i don' tthink this is a hack. It's just adding options in the admin/index.php file that do nothing to edit the forums whatsoever. I may be wrong . .

TECK 11 Mar 2002 06:08

vivi, you are correct. this is not a hack. a hack involves editing of the php code (queries, arrays, etc). gforce2001, in the future, place this kind of mods into the General Discussions with a thread opener like: "add more links to your admin panel". the title you chosed: "Extra Admin CP Addons 1.0", is totally unapropriate, you didnt add any hacked addon in there.


lifesourcerec 11 Mar 2002 08:04

Actually, if any file is modified, it is a hack.

Scrub 11 Mar 2002 08:06

Actually, a hack involves editing of one or more PHP files. Like it or not, this is a hack. :)

Scrub 11 Mar 2002 08:07

Ack! life beat me to it! :p. Good hack too. Forgot to add that in me last message! :)

E 11 Mar 2002 08:53

I like it./.. makes things easier and easy too install... thanks!

Recluse 11 Mar 2002 09:34

hack or not, i liked it

E 11 Mar 2002 09:35

Word!... it was nice and helpful....,.

fonzerelli_79 11 Mar 2002 15:14

im not sure if this classifies as a hack or not but i did think that it is a useful addition to the admin control panel

Remi 11 Mar 2002 15:28

open file admin/index.php


makenavselect("Statistics & Logs","<hr>",$df);

Under that add:

// ***
makenavoption("Viewing Main Forum","../index.php?=","<br>");
makenavoption("Viewing Users Online","../online.php?=","<br>");
makenavoption("Viewing PMs","../private.php?=","<br>");
makenavoption("Viewing Memberlist","../memberlist.php?=","<br>");
makenavselect("Forum Viewing Options","<hr>");

save and reupload it into the admin folder and thats all enjoy...
looks like editing the php code to me =P

Sigon 11 Mar 2002 16:08

This is quite nice. I like it a lot man. Nice work

Floris 11 Mar 2002 16:50

Stop complaining people, be glad he was willing to share it. Gosh. All this ranting on about things doesn't do anybody no good.

It is an alternation, modification of any code, being PHP file, template, whatever, which makes it qualify as a hack. I seriously do not see the problem.

Scott MacVicar 11 Mar 2002 17:06

Ok guys it may not seem a incredibly advanced or complicated hack but its a hack none the less. Its editing the php files and therefore this qualifies as a hack.

kushtiUK 11 Mar 2002 18:24

This is a great and very helpfull addition. Thank you.

g-force2k2 11 Mar 2002 19:32

Next time i will do more... as i stated this was my first and a rather simple one... and yes sure it was editing only just one php file... but nonetheless... an admin cp has not templates therefore none to be edited... and no vb queries were needed... since the hack makes the nav option and inserts it... sure its simple... yet i thought it would be a great help for ppl... the reason i released it... no i know im not an expert hacker just a beginning learning... but thanks to those who thought of it useful i certainly did... thats why i released it ;) hope that helps and for those that don't think it is a hack no biggy... next time i'll try doing more... but as i stated its an addition to the admin cp thats all ^.-


Scott MacVicar 11 Mar 2002 20:01

Its not about the hack using lots of complex functions as long as the hack does what you planned to do via whatever means.

nafae 12 Mar 2002 00:06

Yes I like this alot. I hath installed it. Good Job gforce~

Vivi Ornitier 13 Mar 2002 03:23

What are you talking about Vivi Ornitier?

It would help if you could at least explain... cause there's really nothing but one addition i fail to see your 2.0.1 meaning?


Mike Bucy 14 Mar 2002 10:01

Hack or no hack.......... The "CP Views" worked for me...

Thanks man!!!

Chris M 29 Mar 2002 15:42

Excellent Hack...

I will get our man to add it!


KISS 13 Apr 2002 07:18

I LOVE IT.. Very nice additions to the index.php file. Thanks

Boofo 23 Apr 2002 08:31

Great post! Thanks!

Is there a way to do it for the Super Moderators also?

Shadow Caine 20 Nov 2002 01:34

Ahh, :is relieved of screen switching while making styles:

You should have told me about this hack ;p


desmondw 20 Nov 2002 06:32

I liked this hack ;)

spazeman 23 Nov 2002 08:31

yes i like this hack. :)

Visionray 03 Dec 2002 14:30

This is a great hack, extremely useful. I love it! :)

Its a shame people have to be so rude about this being a "hack" or not. Grow up people.


Buddha 03 Dec 2002 14:44

actually, made me think of a few more pages i'd like to be able to view quickly from within the admin cp, and so i added them to the list.
very helpful, and frankly, i would never have thought of it.
so thanks g-force.


dadymac 03 Dec 2002 15:04

i cant believe all these posts were wasted on just arguing if its a hack

Talisman 03 Dec 2002 17:39

yip same way for all mods


however u would require a query to check wether or not is smod if allow, which might make things a little harder..
however it is not too difficult to to simply copy /forums/mods/index.php to supermod3charshere.php


and then change the references in other files related to supermods to that... instead... or just give them direct link... which is easier still :)

still not 100% sure if that what u wanted to know..

over 25 Jan 2003 17:36

im also in agreement with the latters that have posted, cant believe peeps argueed wether this was a hack or not..

as vb devel chap said. ANY file modification is a hack (unless just template <!-- blah --> ie remmed out or /*
remmed out section or xtra spaces :)

if nothing to say that is constructive about a persons hack, when the hack does what it is suppossed to do. no1 should moan. think of it this way.. some1 posts a damn nice hack, and several peeps Moan bout it, will that hacker feel welcome to post another sweet hack? the answer is he will not feel as inclided to post. peeps should think b4 posting extremely negative comments. :)

Doubledoom 18 Mar 2003 19:53

very nice. installed it in both my admincp and modcp. It was something that was missed from my phpbb days.

bilgiform 21 Aug 2007 02:03

Very good - Nice work - Thankyou
