Okay, I cannot access Donut's site, so I accessed the code to this hack here at ubbdev.com -- and it says I should modify 4 files -- one of them, though, has no instructions to it --> public_topic_page.pl


Any night owl out there who can help me?

You staying up all night Sue?

In 6.1+ UBB's the code needed for this one and the anchor hack are already in the public_topic_page.pl file. It's the anchor tag that works with this and the anchor hack. So don't worry about editing that template, it's already in the base code as you get from IP.

(background: Charles has his "blue arrow" installed in there, tho most of it is commented out, that's where the anchor tag comes from, but it can be used for several modifications we have too at the same time.)

I need to update the mhx file to remove that reference.

I'm beginning to think that I am! LOL

I decided to take the plunge and upgrade my board, and now I have to get the hacks installed.

I'm gonna have to look @ the "Last Reply by" again -- I thought I got it all, but it doesn't show ... board is closed right now while I make the changes.

Well, I installed the anchor hack & the calendar hack, but for some reason or another, I can't get this one to take.

Since my brain is already fuzzy ( tipsy

The only thing I can figure is that I'm putting the code in the wrong place in the vars_wordlets_mods.cgi file.

This is what I did with that:

quote:
%vars_wordlets_mods = (
q~last_reply_by~ => q~Last reply by~,
_ => "",
mod_wordlets => "Modifications Wordlets"
);
1;



The bold code is what I added in.

Anyone with a suggestion on what I need to do?

Thanks!

That should do it.
why not replace with

quote:

if ($reply_number eq "000000"){
$last_post_username = "";
}
else { if ($this_topic_data[15])


with:

if ($reply_number eq "000000"){
$last_post_username = "No Replies";

OH my.

I cleared the cache again, and miracles upon miracles, the link showed up, but NOT the Last reply by.

So I went through this forum, and I thought I found the directions to make this show up; I made the changes, and eagerly ( laugh

Thank God I had backup files.


So, which file am I supposed to alter to get the "Last reply by" to show up?

Thanks!

You know, you could use the multihack file for this... installation takes a minute or 2 with no mistakes.

Have you installed the modification wordlets yet? There's an mhk for it too...

BTW, Allen, whenever I add a reply, I get taken to this page, but not this post -- and then, to see my new post, I have to refresh the page.

Weird. Is it me?

Check our database.. I've added 14 or so of them there....

The page will bring you to your post, it is waiting for the entire page to load... then it drops down. If the ad is loading slow for some reason, it will seem to stop.

Nuts. I haven't done anything with the modification wordlets.

Now I'm trying to access the site for the mhk, and it's not responding.

Where can I get the info so I can do it manually?

I cannot find that line.

The closest that I can find is this:
Code

Should I replace what I have--even though it doesn't match?

just add a space after wordlets_calendar and add: wordlets_mods

so it looks like:

foreach my $file (qw(display misc email time search pm registration template_match wordlets wordlets_err wordlets_img wordlets_date wordlets_calendar wordlets_mods)) {


platinum: because that's the way Philip wanted it..

Thanks, Allen & TD. I really appreciate your patience with me.

Allen, I believe I installed the mod_wordlets correctly, but I'm still not seeing the "Last reply by" verbiage.

I'm thinking that I'm just going to live with what I do have. laugh

I cleared the cache, it still isn't there.


Earlier in this thread, TD told another person to change some code, but TD didn't say in which file.

I believe this is on page 2.

Hi Guys,

I seem to be having a problem with this hack. Instead of putting Latest reply by , it's putting the : there. I think I'm having a problem with the vars_wordlets_mods.cgi. Here it is:

%vars_wordlets_mods = (
last_reply_by => "Last reply by",
mod_wordlets => "Modifications Wordlets",
_ => q~~,
);
1;

Is this correct?

Nuts!

They're not.

Plus, I'm getting a "white page" when I click on the last reply by link!

Nuts, nuts, nuts!

Okay, I finally got the verbiage, "Last reply by" to show, but now I'm dealing with a white page when I click on the link.


I am using the accelerator; I'll try to figure out which changes I need to make.

Once you install a modification using mhk, you need to move the files out of your output folder and into your regular ubb folders, or they get overwritten with the next modification installed. Grab a copy of the vars_wordlets_mods.cgi file from the manual installation and put it in your variables folder.

So, this file, vars_wordlets_mods.cgi, is supposed to be in the variable's folder w/in the cgi-bin folder? It's not needed in the cgi-bin folder?

I have a weird question, also. laugh

It should be compatible with 6.2.. Doesn't seem to be any major code changes where this is implemented, at least not that I can see..

When installing the Last Post By, I'm needing to add the mod_wordlets but the instructions call for v1.0, can I use the v1.5 or should I use the v1.0
