Now here is MY problem - Somone PLEASE help becuase I really am liking vbindex.

I've heard it talked about before. The login boxes do not allow me to login to ANYWHERE from them... all they do is take me to the forums homepage. I have my forums on a subdomain http://forums.armageddononline.org and I have the vbindex page (renamed to index) in my main directory. http://www.armageddononline.org/index.php

I have read you need to change the navbar somewhere and change the prefixes or the URL's or something. I tried messing with it, but was unsuccessful. The ONLY thing I need to get to work, is the login boxes on the main page... if SOMEONE... ANYONE, can please tell me what to do to correct them I would be very thankful. I don't understand what I did wrong...

AOL IM : metalmilitia7555
Yahoo : blackened711
ICQ : 43606642

In fact, thank you in advance!

this sounds incredible. but i do have a couple of questions:

1) is this hack hard to install? because i'm a practical noobie
2) would i still need to install the articles 1 hack, or does this pretty much cover the need for anything like that. since it comes with you being able to post announcements?
3) from the users here who have tried both hacks, what is better vbindex or the vBadvanced CMPS?

Any clue?
Make sure they are enabled, and that you have updated the VBINDEX template as there are changes from previous versions for this to work.

My paid job and other studies have had to come before a free script. I'm not going to release newer versions which I haven't been able to test properly.

You have one of two problems here (or maybe both):

1) Make sure your board URL is set correctly in the vBulletin Options;
2) Make sure your cookie domain is set to .armageddononline.org (yes, 2 dots ) and the cookie path is set to /

Provided you can follow the step by step instructions provided, then no

2) would i still need to install the articles 1 hack, or does this pretty much cover the need for anything like that. since it comes with you being able to post announcements?
That really depends on the functionality your looking for.

Thanks,

and what about the poll? It loads and shows results... but when people try to vote on it, I get the "No Thread specified. If you followed a valid link, please notify the webmaster" page.

Check it out here : http://www.armageddononline.org/index.php

How well does google crawl the vbindex_extra templates? Are meta-tags useful at all?

Thanks again!

Does anyone elses shoutbox produce an annoying width scrollbar?

http://www.idlewilder.co.uk/

I tried all the options, and I can't get rid of it, even changing the text wrap length to different values.
I also like having the older messages at the top. Is there anyway of getting the scollbar to 'jump' to the bottom? So you can see the last message.
i'd rather not disable 'Use Ascending Order For Shouts'..

Any ideas on how to go about this?

Thanks

I'm not getting the "More..." link to appear on news articles when the character count exceeds the limit I've set in vbindex. Rerunning the installer doesn't fix it.

Cool Great to see ya back NTLDR

If you could would you take a look at the code in Post 1838 (Pg.123) and see what I'm missing here to get this to work... :ermm: Love the hack and am happy to hear your taking the necessary time before releasing the New version, I'll be waitng patiently for more of ur great work.

Thank you,

Peace...
