  • help with an upgrade

    I just upgraded Eyes On Final Fantasy's forums from vBulletin 2.01 to 2.22, and encountered a problem.

    On the old board, I had a "Show Status" hack so that administrators and moderators would have "Administrator" or "Cid's Knight" (moderator) appear over top of their custom titles. I did this by including a short snippet of code at about line 355 of showthread.php (the file is here). However, I could not find any place in 2.22's showthread.php where the hack would work--In fact, using 2.22's showthread.php, any variables I declared were automatically destroyed--I tried inserting the line $bleys_test="Hello, World<br>"; and calling it in my postbit template, right above the custom title, and got a blank line.

    I got around the problem by overwriting 2.2.2's showthread.php with the old one, but I'd really like to find a way to make the hack work with 2.2.2's smaller file--I don't know how many features I'm disabling by using the old file.

    Since this is hacking, you'll need to ask over at
