Did vbgamer code that?   :mdr:
I guess I wouldn't know how to do it, either, if it's not built into the SSI calls...
Actually it's easy to do: is_not_banned();

And no, it was largely built by winrules from what I remember. It wasn't designed to deal with SMF type bans, though it is possible to ban someone from submitting mods separately. Being able to approve mods is a permission on sm.org, though. (I did used to have a copy of the code, not sure if I still have it. It's... interesting reading though.)

I was going to go to phpbb (not really because its better or worse but had something my site needs).  In fact, I loved smf and aeva/smg so much, I learned a very small amount of php and crudely ported the thing I needed to smf instead.
Lol... :)
What was that thing?
Well, its a BBC for phpbb that adds support for Guild Wars skills and builds..  It is actually a lot like Arantor's Aion bbc mod except the data (pictures, jscript and databases) are all kept on your server instead of like Aions system where it pulls from the aion website.

Looks like this  http://gwgoodolddays.com/index....php?action=help;area=gwbbcode.  In fact as long as I have an open window of opportunity.. Arantor and Nao, are there any books or tutorials that would stand out in your mind to help someone (like me) learn php (and php sql integrations.. something I have never gotten) properly.  Everything I have done so far is just hacking and looking at the code for other mods.

Well, the PHP manual is pretty good for learning PHP itself - www.php.net

As for PHP + SQL, http://www.google.co.uk/#hl=en...d+mysql+tutorial+for+beginners suggests multiple tutorials; I seem to recall learning it from the PHP manual and trial and error, and studying other code out there.

Just to make sure you're aware of it, Nao, your AeMe support thread at SM.org is no longer stickied...

Hmm... Should I be surprised? They keep changing everything about this topic. First they turned it into a board against my advice, then they merged it all into a topic without telling, then they stickied it without telling, then they unstickied without telling...

Whatever! As long as I can't post on it anyway, that topic is as good as dead....................................... -_-

Ah, yes I remember... You offered me to help play through the main quest in GW1, didn't you? ;) (Well, never had time to relaunch it anyway...)

I learned it all by reading through the SMF code back in the day... :^^;:

Aeva Lite 7.1.708 is out!

Errr, well... Not really!

But I've set up a beta version for you to try out. Warning, this is UNTESTED, because it's incompatible with Aeva Media, and I don't have a test server available for now.

Features added:
- forcing cache to be disabled on posts, because this would break Javascript code.
- support for HTML-type embedding, and Google Maps (which uses just that)
- support for YouTube's data API. It fixes broken lookups after embedding a certain amount of videos.
- fixed (hopefully) internal version numbers, avoiding some broken sitelists.
- more minor fixes from the Aeva Media 2.x codebase. (And yes, right now, a few of these fixes aren't in Aeva Media 1.3a, but they're planned for a future 1.3b update.)

Yep, consider it a standing offer if you ever have time.

Okay... I've had a look at the topic over there and no one posted the link I asked.
http://www.simplemachines.org/...ty/index.php?topic=200401.4660

No one downloaded the beta version. Can someone test it, please...?
It's annoying reading that topic. Since I'm banned, I *can't* provide support over there (and there are a few questions I could easily provide a definitive answer to.) And I'm not sure I *want* to provide support *HERE* for management reasons. Just my luck...

Thanks. Too bad it's happening just as I'm going to sleep.
If someone has a problem with this beta, just uninstall it and reinstall v7.0 instead!
Again, it was untested! I just checked the logic of the code, which should be good!

I'm surprised no one seems to give a damn about this beta...
I mean, so many people sent so much time to ask for an update to Aeva Lite...
For this! :rolleyes:

I would but already have 1.3a installed and nicely settled.

There are links to here on [whisper]SMF[/whisper] but few can be bothered to seek them out even on the mod page plus there is ahem another mod claiming to to much the same thing.  >:(
