*******************************************

What does this mod do?
This mod allows you to create a message at the very top. It is great for quick little news that need to be seen ASAP (ie: forum downtime, help needed, etc). Please refer for the screenshots below to fully understand what this does as I'm not too great with explinations

There are many many options for it and I couldn't fit all of them in one screenshot. Help will only be given to those that click install. http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/vborg...hreadid=150345

Instructions:
1) Go to Admin CP -> Plugins & Products -> Manage Products -> Add / Import Product

2) Go to Admin CP -> Styles & Templates -> Style Manager -> Edit Template -> Open 'header'

3) At the very top of the 'header' template, please place this,

4) Upload informative.png to /yourforumsdirectory/images/misc/informative.png

**If you are upgrading, you must remove / delete this hack from Add/ Import Products before uploading the new XML.
**Be sure to write down your current settings as they will be put back to default!


Next version will include an option to display different messages based on usergroup.

To see a live example, please visit: http://www.zomgstuff.net/forum/forum_index.php The box in the top left corner would be the mod.

Oh yeah - there's an extra '>' at the beginning of the 'zs_announcement' template - right after '$stylevar[htmldoctype]'

It was putting that character onto the top of all of the pages.

prob. is, if you remove it, the box covers the actual forum template (design).... but when you turn off the announcements, the > gets visible. any work-around?

Fixed it and updated it, thanks for brining that to my attention.

That is the whole point that it kind of makes it float over the template.
Maybe there's a div style that can change that around, change "The box position" from absolute to something else.

I just uploaded v 1.0.2 of the hack which now includes an option for an informative icon to be displayed. Check the screenshot in this post for an example of it.

Next release will include an option to display different messages based on usergroup. I leave tomorrow morning for a 3 week vacation so it might be a while until then. I might be able to add this tonight, but I can't promise anything because I'm extremely busy today.

Akliyo I will include that in the next release.
