[Done 1.4.1 & 1.5.x] Force Calendar Post into Default Board 1.2

OK, so I've created my first little mod.  It is nothing too great but it was a feature I was looking for.  It gives a check box in the "Admin > Calendar" settings so that when you go to post an event into the calendar, you can not change the destination of the post.  It just displays the "Default Board" that was already specified in the settings rather than giving you a select box.

In order to make it as complete as possible, I would like for some people to give me accurate translations of the check box label so my mod can update all the language files.

english: "Force Post into Default Board"
dutch:
finnish:
german: "Immer in das Standard Board posten"

english: "Post No Topic"
dutch:
finnish:
german: "Kein Thema posten"

calforceboard - updated 05/27/2003

Updates:
09/27/2002: added an option to not create a new topic when you create a calendar event.  The two options work well together if you would like to totally disable the post event into a topic function.

10/10/2002: added the german text to the mod (thanks Daniel). made it so that is "force into default" is enabled, the "linktocalendar" button is only visible in the default board.

03/03/2003: Updated for 1.5.1 RC1

04/22/2003: Updated for 1.5.1 Final

05/02/2003: Fixed bug in "post no topic"; Tested with 1.5.2

05/27/2003: Tested with 1.5.3

Thanks all.

I should mention that be sure to back up your data before applying this, or any, mod.  Everything I post works fine in my YaBB installation but your milage may vary.

I think this is a fantastic mod and I am really looking forward to trying it.  Do I need to use Board mod to input the new data or can I do it manually? If I can place the data manually where do I need to put it?  Also will this work for YabbSE 1.4.0??

It is coded for the YaBBpak installer that is in YaBBSE 1.4.1.  I don't know if it works with 1.4.0 as i have never used it.  If you wish to do things by hand, you are on your own.  I wrote the mod and packaged it according to the way designed for YaBBSE and I am not going to redo it or explain its installation for those that don't do things that way.  Sorry but I've put enough time into making mod that way and don't really want to spend more time redoing it.

I understand Jack, not wanting to go through that mess.  Anyways I have just upgraded to 1.4.1 and am lost.  You made mention of an installer in this version but I don't see anything.  Where is this installer at in 1.4.1 so I can install your mod?  THanks

In the Admin Center for your board, there is a section called Forum Controls.  There is a link called YaBBpak Center.  This is where you can install mods packaged fro the YaBBpak system.  You will first have to download the  *.mod.yp file for the mod and then upload it into the Packages folder of your YaBBSE install.  Once you have done that, when you get into the YaBBpak Center, you will see a link "Browse YaBBpaks" this will list all the *.mod.yp files that are in oyur Packages folder and from there it walks you throough the intall.

D8TA,

I am glad you approve.  I take it that the install went smooth.  Just wondering which of the two features you find most useful?  I really wanted the Force into the default board myself.  The "post no topic" was someone elses idea that made sense to just add in since they kind of work together.

My main use for the mod is to force post into default board.  I never seen the post no topic, just the force post into default board.  Not that I need the post no topic option.  Very great mod and thanks for sharing Jack.  ;D

I never seen the post no topic, just the force post into default board.

In the board selection box (either in the admin section or the "post event" form), one of the board selections should be "Post No Topic".  Selecting this will create the calendar event but not start a new topic.  Using the two options together, you can totally disable the "create new topic for each calendar event" feature of YaBB.  Some people want that.

Very great mod and thanks for sharing Jack.  ;D

Anytime... I love this sh*t!  I wish I could get paid to sit around all day and write code... oh wait I do... life is good!
