Thanks smile

The birthday avatar shouldn't make the board any slower, since it only checks the member profile (which is open in any case) and the calendar variable file (you shouldn't notice that, since dozens of other files are also opened so one more doesn't make any difference).

Upgrading to Threads: a next generation UBB is planned to be released soon, so if I were you I would wait, unless the performance issue is really urgent. smile

Yeah, I can wait. I've thought about other software (i.e. not InfoPop/Groupee) but the thing is, I've been using UBB since around 2000. (well, June 2000 to be precise)

I've moved my forum onto a fair few servers during that time, and I know the software well. By that, I don't mean coding, but general operations, file systems... so I feel pretty secure if I need to install a backup or move to another server.

In other words, UBB feels like home to me, so yeah, it'll be worth waiting. The only reason I haven't already upgraded to UBB.Threads is coz it looks a bit basic. (i.e the interface)

UBB.Classic looks a lot better. smile

If the birthdays are off from what's stored in the profile, any way to autmagically update what's displayed in the calendar?

Looks like they registered under one birthday and edited it later to their actual birthday smash

insignificant buglet report... it seems that maybe if public display name has an apostrophe in it, the user's age is shown as 2 when their birthday rolls around laugh

Yes, it should work for 6.7.2.

Allen/Rox, I missed your post. The code seems fine actually, I'll check it out soon.
The current code is (do_add_event_birthday):
Code
	my $descs = "$_[1]|!!|$_[0]|!!|$_[2]"; $descs =~ s/'/'/isg;
It should replace all the apostrophes with "'".

I think you just need to re-upload the file(s) (all files you modified), or re-mod them then re-upload.

I've actually kinda, sorta figured out another tweak to LK's mod ... based on code from last year ... unfortunately, in my notes, I don't have the individual who created the code for this. Sorry about that.

On the front page of my board, I like to have the calendar listed--and I like to have it at the top--so that when people come to my site, they can see if anything *special* is happening that day.

Using last year's code and playing around a bit, I was able to get it to "work."

Here's what I did:

In public_forum_summary.pl find

Code
$calendar  
Delete it (it only appears once)

----

Also in public_forum_summary.pl find

Code
	$Top .= "</tr>$pntf_locations[1]";

return ($Top);
} # end Normal_Table_Top
before the above code, add

Code
	$Top .=  $calendar;  
-----

In ubb_forum_summary.cgi find

Code
$TBT
<tr>
<td bgcolor="$vars_style{AltColumnColor1}" valign="top" align="left">
<font size="1" face="$vars_style{FontFace}">$calendar$linebreak$birthdays
</font>
</td>
</tr>
$TBB
replace it with

Code
<tr bgcolor="$vars_style{CategoryStripColor}">
<td colspan="6">
<a href="$vars_config{CGIURL}/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=calendar">
<font size="$vars_style{TextSize}" face="$vars_style{FontFace}" color="$vars_style{CategoryStripTextColor}">
<b>$vars_wordlets_calendar{calendar}</b>
</a>
</font>
</td>
</tr><tr>
<td bgcolor="$vars_style{AltColumnColor1}" valign="top" align="left">
<img src="$vars_config{NonCGIURL}/calendarfs.gif" alt="" />
</td>
<td bgcolor="$vars_style{AltColumnColor1}" valign="top" align="left" colspan="6">
<font size="$vars_style{TextSize}" face="$vars_style{FontFace}">
$calendar
</font>
</td>
</tr>
----


Edit to add: you also need to clear the cache

-------

It seems to be working w/out problems ( smash knock on wood) ... again, I cannot take credit for this add-on to the calendar mod ... I'm not sure who created this code.

I just tried this
and its not working for me
I just would like to add it to my main forum page

n00b here. laugh
I have a question.
I got to editing the ubb_new_topic.cgi
Where the instructions ask to find:
Code
	# show signature?
if (($vars_display{AllowSignature} eq 'YES') && (($username && ($username ne '')) &#0124;&#0124; ($vars_display{RequireLoginPosts} eq "NO"))) {
$show_sig = qq(
<input type="checkbox" name="Signature" id="Signature" value="yes" checked="checked" /> $vars_wordlets{show_signature});
}
All I can find in my ubb_new_topic.cgi is:
Code
# show signature?
if (($vars_display{AllowSignature} eq 'YES') && ($username ne '')) {
my $checked = $user_prefs->{check_nosig} ? "" : qq~checked="checked"~;
$show_sig = qq(
<input type="checkbox" name="Signature" id="Signature" value="yes" $checked /> $vars_wordlets{show_signature});
}
Any thoughts?
Can I just preform the "Add below:" instructions below what I have in my ubb_new_topic.cgi?

BTW I am running UBBClassic 6.7.2

that is all in cp2_lib.cgi and cp2_vars.cgi, so make sure that you did all of the modifications for those, and make sure you uploaded the modified files.

Another question.
I set calendar to "Only Staff and selected members may post new events" and I have selected the "User may post new Calendar event?" check box for a member.
That member is unable to post an event on the calendar.

It appears that only I (the administrator) can post events.

What am I missing?

Thanks

I have strange request in regards to this hack...

I have already installed everything and have it working perfectly, EXCEPT that I have intentionally skipped hacking 'public_common.pl' since I don't want the calendar to be available in any manner other than the Nav Bar on the left side of my page.

The way I design, my sites are extremely frames dependant, so I need to resolve 1 major issue, and 1 minor one.

1) (the minor issue) I am wanting to eliminate everything above the Month Date { profile-faq-home-etc}, but am unable to locate the line of code to do so. I figured it was simply a matter of removing the 2nd line in 'public_calendar.pl', but that did nothing.

2) (the MAJOR issue) When clicking on a date with info, then clicking on the link at the bottom of the Calendar that send you to the actual Forum Page, it brings it up to a 2nd page, that IS NOT within a frame structure... I'm needing this link to call a parent INDEX page that will in turn call the specific forum topic page under it.

A quick look through my site should give you guys a basic idea of what I'm looking for.

http://www.nea-reefkeeping.com/index-calendar.htm

Also, if somebody could explain how create the small calendar image in the sidebar via the SSI, that would be killer, because I could remove the text link.

Okay, I was able to resolve Issue #2 by editing 'vars_calendar_events.cgi' and changing the URL to force it through the necessary paths.

Any suggestions for Issue #1 however, would be greatly appreciated. smile

removing that will pretty difficult since the code there is the same code throughout the forum files (it's all pulled from public_common.pl) - turning it off in one place turns it off all over smash

You could edit the header and footer of the calendar file to pull headers and footers the old way, but there's a little effort/trial and error involved smile

I was looking to add some text to the Calendar page.
What I would like to do is add some text and a link which would display just above the nav bar but below the "$thismonth $yeartem"

Can this be added to the public_calendar.pl file?
If so where and how would I place this information?

In public_calendar.pl file, find:
Code
		before_navbar => qq~<h2 align="center">$thismonth $yeartem</h2>~,
After the tag, add the text, for example:
Code
		before_navbar => qq~<h2 align="center">$thismonth $yeartem</h2>
