Works fine now. Didn't need the last fix you offered. Thank you for your patience and help!

Now.....
We need to make the box taller (or whatever needs to be done) to handle 2 lines of text! If you go too long, it gets cut off, and only partially shows a tip of the 2nd line's text.

Thank you.

I'll play around with that.

5.39 doesn't suck!
I just have so many hacks, I can't upgrade. I have extra text fields and truncation crap for news article posting, and I have to comply with copyright laws.

I tried an upgrade a while back and none of my stuff worked.

Thanks again for your patience and help [aa]!

I wish we could edit our posts here.

Is there a way we can fit more text on the one line? It seems the box can accomodate a longer text line.

I installed the hack and everything works perfectly. Except when the userdefined news finishes the hack stops and I would get "Error on Page" message below.

It doesn't want to loop! help please..

yeah am sure my news doesn't inclue a "," but when I add an entry the script adds it automatically if I inserted for instance "testing testing" the script will save it as: "testing testing","",

You have to make sure the last line doesn't have a comma, the script inserts it and we never got around to fixing it.


I do not offer support by EMail or ICQ, please post your question at UBBDev....

The newscript works beautifully (2.5) in 5.47e, except for the welcome our newest user, message.
Fixed by adding to the else statement as shown below.

In the Ultimate.cgi file:
if ($NEWS_REG ne "") {
if ($DisplayMemberTotal ne "true") {
&GetMemberListArray;
my $TotalMembers = @members;
@lastmember = reverse(@members);
$LastReg = $lastmember[0];
$LastRegCoded = $LastReg;
chomp($LastReg);
$LastRegCoded =~ tr/ /+/;
chomp($LastRegCoded);
} else {
if ($LastReg eq "") {
@lastmember = reverse(@members);
$LastReg = $lastmember[0];
$LastRegCoded = $LastReg;
chomp($LastReg);
$LastRegCoded =~ tr/ /+/;
chomp($LastRegCoded);
}
}

##
# Replace with :
##

if ($NEWS_REG ne "") {
if ($DisplayMemberTotal ne "true") {
&GetMemberListArray;
my $TotalMembers = @members;
@lastmember = reverse(@members);
$LastReg = $lastmember[0];
$LastRegCoded = $LastReg;
chomp($LastReg);
$LastRegCoded =~ tr/ /+/;
chomp($LastRegCoded);
} else {
if ($LastReg eq "") {
&GetMemberListArray;
@lastmember = reverse(@members);
$LastReg = $lastmember[0];
$LastRegCoded = $LastReg;
chomp($LastReg);
$LastRegCoded =~ tr/ /+/;
chomp($LastRegCoded);
}
}
