I have reinstalled and at least there are no database errors thus far.

I am seeing Add To Favorite Threads in Thread Tools and Add To Favorite Posts at the top right of each posted message, but there is no drop down menu in the navbar. I do have a very customized navbar, so that may be the issue. Can you give me the code for the navbar?

I think that is all I am missing.

Thanks for this mod - very cool!

Add thread and add user are there and so is the drop down box in the navbar.

The "add post to favorites" is all that's missing for me, due to modded postbit template.

Any chance of seeing the code to add this manually please?

Mike

Thanks, but as mentioned just above, I'm also looking for the postbit edits if possible?

It shows up in my stock postbit, but not in my postbit_legacy - I've looked through the plugin code but I'm no coder and can't figure it out.

Perhaps I'm missing a hook in my legacy template - could you tell me which one is used please? - or let me know which string/link I could use for " - Add Post To Favorites " to appear next to the checkbox for inline mod as it does in my legacy template?

Also - once I've figured this out, I need to make the text stand out a little more as it's little too faint and not easily seen - which CSS tag does "- Add Post To Favorites' use (smallfont maybe?) and in which template would I change that?

Many thanks,
Mike

I made some changes to the postbit, using images instead of text. The original text is now used in the image ALT tag and I have images that are slightly different depending on if it's an add or a remove of the favorite.

The original images were free on the web and I modified them to suit my own website, so change them as you require.

Edit Template: vbfavorites_postbit

Delete everything in it, replace it with:

Place the attached images in your images\misc folder.
