ok i posted this in beta mods a couple of days ago, but i think its pretty much finished.

What it does: Checks your pms, shows whos online, and your latest headlines from slash ubb forum via the news fader. Main use is for ssi to other pages or require into cgi files.

D/l: http://something.woaf.net/info.zip

Demo

Install instructions within cgi file. [Linked Image]

no longer requires that news fader is installed.

Somebody help me,,,,this is the coolest hack I've seen yet,,, and i can't get it to work in my 5.46a board.
i'm no programming genius,,,but i uploaded the fade.gif and the fader.js to my non-cgi directory and the info.cgi to my cgi directory,,,and its not doing anything.
i know I need to "call" it somewhere? In my ultimate.cgi?..but where do I put it if I want it to be on the top of the board?
I dont get this part....
"Can be called via #
# $online_url = qq(Viewing: News ); #
# require "info.cgi"; "

Where do I put that?
Someone help an idiot please?

thats for if u want to include the file into another cgi file. If u just want to use it on a static page then use the virtual include tag [Linked Image]

To put it in ultimate, try finding the header html and straight after it add the
$online_url = "fdg";
require "info.cgi";

i'll check it properly when i get home.

thank you soo much,,,,
what I'd like to do is have the News Fader on the top of the board on the main UBB page. So if I put that code in the Header HTML section it may work?
Cool,,,,I'll mess with it... what is the "fdg" though?

ST8,, thanks again, but still really vague..I can't be the only guy who's having a problem with this...humor me and walk me through it step by step:

1)place fader.js and fade.gif into my noncgi dir

2)configure the stuff in info.cgi down to where it says "End of Configuration"
(I think I can do that!?)

3)Upload info.cgi into my cgi-bin

4)call it somehow in another page,,but how?
If I want to put it at the top of my main page table, what code EXACTLY do I put in my ultimate.cgi or is it even supposed to be in there?

5)add headlines etc.. to the fader? Where?

I'm not trying to be a pain in the ass, but i love this hack you made and really want to implement it on my www.vanhalenlive.com Forums.

If anyone can help me, I'll link your site from mine, make a banner, (I'm good at graphics and HTML, not this stuff obviously),, or Vh fans can get some boots,, any help would be greatly appreciated. If need be, I'll even put up a link to any of my cgi files, so someone can show me where to put that little slab of code.

Thanks,

Hey guy's,

I'm also having a little trouble with this hack and would appreciate a little help. the thing is it seems so easy to set up but nothing actually happens after I've finished.

Here's what I've done already.

1. uploaded fader.js and fade.gif into my noncgi dir and info.cgi into my cgi-bin.

2. Opened up Ultimate.cgi and located the line...

TableTop1
}

3. Inserted the following straight after the above

$online_url = qq(Viewing: News );
require "info.cgi";

According to the instructions I should then be ready to go. The instructions within info.cgi say that if you do not have news fader installed to uncomment the four options below.

4. The news fader section of the info.cgi now looks like this...

$Nfader = "ON";
$NEWS_REG = "";
$NEWS_ANNC = "yes";
$NEWS_UDEF = "";

So then, where am i going wrong?? If I go to mw forums nothing new appears and it still looks the same as usual... no fader, no who's online etc... it's as if the hack hasn't done anything. Can anybody see where I'm going wrong or what I should do.

By the way my url is http://216.167.121.134/cgi-bin/forums/Ultimate.cgi

If it helps I'm using version 5.47

ST8,,,,,doesn't work, i did EXACTLY what you said,,,,the same thing happens to me as the guy in the last post. NOTHING!
I have 5.46a,,, I've installed 5 different hacks, and they all worked on the first try,,this one doesn't work at all.
The instructions are too vague. Can't someone post a version with the standard:
#FIND THIS:
#REPLACE WITH:
Hacks like that are fool proof even for people that no nothing about perl or cgi. (like me)

Its a great hack,, but the instructions are TERRIBLE!. I'm sure someone can make this a user friendly hack,,, so i'll just check back periodically to see if any new and improved who's online hacks are posted.

I noticed there aren't any posts from someone thats gotten it to work. Maybe you should move it to "beta mods" till its fully functional.

Thanks anyway for your help.

right here we go...
http://something.woaf.net/info.zip

to use in Ultimate, do the following (put it in teh wrong place last time, DOH!)

find:
TableTop1
}

replace with:
TableTop1
$online_url = "Main Page";
print "
";
require "info.cgi";
print "
after the first row on the ultimate.cgi page. No fader,, no whos online,,,just deletes the whole page.
If anyone can give me a link to a whos online that works on 5.46,, please help me!!
I don't even care about the newsfader,,,,I've tried the Dave Downin hack and now this one,,,and neither work for **** on my board.
And,,yes i did install then right.

Thanks anyway ST8, it was nice of you to try for me.

Great hack 3 in one!
But did everything what was written here with my UBB5.46 and got the same thing as craigsmith5150 , can modify everything till it works but that will cost me 2 hours or less cause I'm not a developer :-( .
So if someone knows how this hack must be installed please tell us.

Respect for the author/developer but documenting the hack is sometimes more important then the hack itself. tipsy

Hey Sheila, I am sure something will be written similar to this for v6.

St8 do you have a current working url for a demo?
