Twc today & Twc Classics suggestion
« on: April 14, 2010, 11:29:38 AM »
There is a mod called Multiple Forum Mod for smf and it allows you to have two boards but share users, database, and one upgrade only!

Link: http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=2137

Install the mod on this board then in the admin panel go here:
Quote
# Administration Center
# Modification Settings
# Create New Subforum


Fill out the information like so:
Quote
This Forum's ID: 0

New Forum ID: 1
New Forum URL (WITHOUT THE TRAILING '/' !): http://twcclassics.com/forums
New Forum Name: Twc Classics Forums


Now the code that it gives you should be made into a index.php file.
Upload that to : http://twcclassics.com/forums


You can add Categories to the sub-forum

Go here in the admin panel:

Quote
    * Jorgen's Community
    * Administration Center
    * Boards
    * Modify Boards


Click on a category's modify button. You will see:
Quote
Forum Parent
The ID of the sub-forum this category is usable on


If you put 0 it will be on Twc Today's board
If you purt 1 it will be on Twc Classics' board


Tell me what you think!

I don't like it. :no:
I've gone off on a journey to be a moderator at another forum, but this place will forever remain home for me~

I think we want to have just one forum. The purpose of the merger was to just have one forum. Otherwise one of them would be a lot less active than the other, which was the case with the old TWCC message board.
