Supported Template Edits Re-usable Code Translations  

What is it?

This is a simply yet very effective newsbar that you can display at the top of your forum. You can display 1 or as many as you like and change the colour and border of each one.


How to Install?


1. Go to AdminCP --> Styles & Templates --> Your Style --> Edit Templates --> Forum Home Templates --> FORUMHOME
2. Find:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

and below place:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Additionally you can instead add this code to the end of your additional CSS by going to your AdminCP --> Templates & Styles --> YOUR STYLE --> Edit Templates --> Additional CSS. If you decide to do this please make sure you remove the <style> tags so the code would look:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

If you put the CSS in the FORUMHOME you do not put it in the additional.css. The same goes for if you put the CSS in the additional.css you do not put it in the FORUMHOME.
3. Find (in FORUMHOME):

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

and below place:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

4. Save and enjoy




If you want to have multiple just repeat step 3 by placing the same code below. If you want to have multiple that are different colours then you'll need to duplicate the CSS with different class names (say .newsbar_red) and change the CSS colours accordingly.



If you use this please mark as installed
Support (if any) will be prioritized to those who have this modification marked as installed.

The only reason I put it in additional.css is when I tried forumhome for what ever reason it wouldn't work for me.

Just add the style code to the bottom of additional.css with out the tags:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

I'm glad you managed to get it working and I am going to add this to the tutorial so if others get the same issue (custom style) then they can hopefully resolve it.


Thanks.

Okay, are you using a custom style?
Did you place the code in the correct place?
Have you made any previous modifications to the required templates?

I added the code to alternative CSS and added the p class where directed.

All original files on standard vB 4.2.0 template.

I dunno lol. It just didn't work. Nothing there at all at one point then just got code in top left above logo.

Cheers

When you added the CSS code to the additional.CSS template did you remove the <style> tags?
So the code should be:
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Good work!
Lot of improvements required in instructions.

Item 2 is not required for custom styles and the style included in the additional.cs is enough.

In Item 3.
Mentioned Find and not given where to find?
and in the replacement code should add clear instructions to change the url of the users site otherwise 404 error will occur.
Also can suggest some good location for that.
