vB Version: 3.7.x Rating: (2 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 60
Released: 04 May 2008 Last Update: Never Downloads: 359
Not Supported Translations  

This modification is no longer available or supported.

This allows you to display a completely custom page to members when you close your forum or when your server load exceeds the limit set in the ACP (Replacing the current standard error type page that is displayed).

Notes:

* The supplied "Board_Closed" and "Board_Busy"templates are pretty basic, you should customise them to suit your own needs.

* The server busy functionality will only work if your server supports it. If you don't see server load readings in your ACP homepage then its not supported.



History:

v3.7.001 : Initial vb 3.7 release.

I'm guessing it shows an actual page that you make yourself other than the actual board with the board message?

Right. The default only allows a text message. This enables a separate template(s), so I threw together a page with a picture of the staff saying we'll be back shortly, and just copied and pasted the whole thing into the new Board_closed template. Easy.

More difficult to test as I had to close the board to test it. Oh, and I had to edit the Board_closed template 3 times for each style.

edit: I dunno, but for some reason it wouldn't install in my 3.7.1pl2 board properly, which is really where I wanted it for my upgrade to 3.7.2. Oh well. It went into my other 3.7.2 board fine.

Im pretty sure the description covers it

This allows you to display a completely custom page to members when you close your forum or when your server load exceeds the limit set in the ACP (Replacing the current standard error type page that is displayed).

re: This mod wouldn't install in my 3.7.1pl2 board

This morning I updated to 3.7.2 and the Board_Closed template still wouldn't show up. Everything else seemed fine.

So I came here and was composing a question. At some point I had to refer back to my AdminCP, and it had magically appeared! So I dunno, something to do with reloading pages after install.
