  • Streamlined Announcements

    This mod won't be for everyone (if anyone!)

    I was tired of my forum announcements looking the same as general posts within a forum, and like general threads on the actual announcements page (ie, with the avatars and all), so decided to strip them down a little to make it less "post-y"

    Examples:

    Forum page

    Announcements page


    Just replace the templates noted in the attachment with the relative values:

      I like the new look. I will definitely do this, but I have one question first. Do I replace all the code with what you provided, or just replace part of it?

        Ok, I tried it here by replacing all the whole template, but now there is a big space on the right hand side. I will play with it some, I thought I might have messed up. Any ideas?

          Ok, that was easy to fix. You just have to tell it how many columns you want it to spread out to fit.

          Thanks MarkB, great template change.

          You can see the way it looks in the forum and the announcement.

            How would I go about putting the announcement in the seperate, smaller section you have right above your main forums content?

              Do you mean in the subforum Educational Threads? If so, I really don't know. It is another forum, so I don't know if it is possible to add one there. If it is possible, that would be great. Does anyone else know?

              Something I am trying to do now that I need help on is change it to read "2 Announcement(s) Most Recent: Blah, Blah, Blah from ptbyjason". Does anyone know how to get the announcecount on the forum page like that?

                          In 'forumdisplay_announcement' change:

                          PHP Code:
                          <td bgcolor="#DFDFDF" colspan="5"><normalfont>Announcement
                          to:

                          PHP Code:
                          <td bgcolor="#DFDFDF" colspan="6"><normalfont>Announcement
                          (ignoring the colour codes, of course Basically, just change the colspan value)
