MOTD in PHPBB

Postby PazzeKahl » Sat Sep 16, 2006 10:50 pm

Hi @ll

I want to put the motd of the guild in the header of the phpbb forum! well i can do that by adding

Code: Select all
<img src="http://domain.com/roster/motd.php?motd=gildmessage">


in the overall_header.tpl, but than ive to rewrite the message everytime myself when it changes! it might look kinda nice if u want to have a custom one in ur forum, but i would like that it takes the motd which is saved in the databes, just like in the roster! i looked through the files to find out how its done there, but couldnt find anything, how its integrated there!
already thanks for help

Heres the link to the Forum i want to have the motd in, right now i did it like i descriped above with writing it myself

Actually, this is not a bad idea
Maybe I can add code to detect no message and grab the one from the database

yeah, that's what i meant, but couldnt u just use the code of the roster page itself and just edit the path a little? I just cant find the code in the roster page... :scratch:
another thing what you could do is, is to make it grap the lines out of another table which is editable in the admin section of phpbb, to make a custom generated one! but i dont know how im supposed to intrigrate the motd, so it looks the message up on the database!

Any update to this, i've been trying to get my phpBB to see the motd image all day.

I get the back ground and the no message indicator. I can edit it manual like the Pazze said. but I can't get it to parse the roster DB to get the current message.

Anyone know how to add string to the main phpbb forums to see the roster DB. note: my phpbb and my roster are in 2 differnet SQL db's.
