You can allow uploads for a forum? I never saw the feature on the admin.php or anything? Where is it? The best I could do was to enable attachments, but how do you upload files DIRECTLY from posting.php? Thanks!

Oh, and about the Jump to Forum menu, I don't think it works when I use Tabbed Emerald, because that was my problem when I was just using Emerald, but then I upgraded to Tabbed Emerald. I just checked. JumpMenu is still On but it is not displayed.

Then the tabbed templates does not have the placeholder that is used to put the jumpmenu in place using javascript. I think I used the breadcrumbs div for adding the jumpmenu. Check out the readme file for the module to find out how to add the jumpmenu to the template without relying on the default code.

About uploading attachments with messages: did you really take a good look at the forum settings? Go to the settings screen for a forum for which you want to enable attachments. Scroll down to the "Attachment Settings". Configure the attachments there.

Oh is THAT what you meant? Oh...I already did that. That's what I was talking about. Thanks anyways. And I read the README and it only talked about customization and not how to add the script for jumpmenu to Tabbed Emerald...

The module does not know anything about templates other than emerald. So you will have to add your own root element for the jumpmenu to your template, since the template apparently diverts from emerald in such way that the automatic root element creation does not work. The relevant part of the README is:

If you want to create your own root item for the menu, then you can edit
your main Phorum template to include some element that has
id="mod_jumpmenu_root" in its properties. The Jumpmenu module wil
automatically use that one as the root element, for example:

  <a id="mod_jumpmenu_root">
    Open the forum menu ...
  </a>

Oh Thanks. But I think I'll drop this for know. It has some problems when I was using it on Emerald. Thanks anyway.

I uploaded version 1.1.7 of the module.

Changelog:

Added a hook "jumpmenu_add" to the module, which can be used by other modules to add extra items to the root level popup of the jump menu. The first implementation of an extra menu item has been added to the Recent Messages module.

Do you have suggestions how your JumpMenu can be elegantly implemented in the registering process? I want to provide the option for users to select a forum folder they want to be directed to after the log in. Obviously, only folders (but not forums) supposed to be displayed. I believe many forums could benefit from this feature. Thank you for your attention!

That is quite outside the scope if this module.

Although I don't see the exact use of this feature (isn't the favorite forum module better?), I also doubt if you'd want it as part of the registration process. Doesn't it make more sense to have something like that in the control center, so users aren't stuck with their choice at registration time? And when you write "after login", I immediately think about sessions that are kept alive in the browser. Unless you set Phorum up to quickly expire sessions (which in most cases upsets the users), users will normally not login too often. So that event does not trigger that much.

Anyway, the jumpmenu is not the tool for this and you'd need to do some more programming in a module to get this working at all. The main reason for the jumpmenu not being useful, is that it is not a form element. if you want to code on this feature, then take a look at for example the search page code, where a form element is built for selecting a forum to search in.

Thank you, Maurice! Practically you are right with session cookies. But they can't help me with my idea. I am convinced there would be an abundance of applications that could take advantage of addressing forums i.e. via input-forms without actually entering the forum itself. For example, I would like to allow users only to post in their destiny or home folder they are applying for during registration. Phorum would probably be unique with this feature since I checked out some other forums like SMF. It'd be great if you guys could spend some thoughts on it. Thank you!!

PS: I also refer to Joe's Post: 699
Sorry, only registered users may post in this forum.
