RELATED TO CUSTOM THEMES
When installing Post Ratings if you want to install into your additional themes, besides Core (which installs for both Curve and Core Themes automatically upon installation, and needs to be this way in order for Post Ratings to work in the Core Theme). There is no need to install the images, as they are automatically installed and linked to the Curve images directory. The only thing that must be installed is the index.template.php edit. You can refer to this pic attached for how to install in your other themes.
If, for some reason, you are not able to view the Enable, Disable, and Delete Ratings images in your custom themes within all posts (and it's not disabled in Post Ratings Settings), or you have installed Themes after you installed Post Ratings, you can edit the index.template.php file manually within the SMF Admin Panel:
: Browse to: Admin
-> Themes and Layout
-> Theme Settings
: Click on your Custom Theme's Name, you may have to scroll down until you see it.
: Under Edit Theme
, click on: Modify the index template. (the main template)
: In the 3rd textarea edit box, you will see: function template_html_above()
, look for this code in there:
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="', $settings['default_theme_url'], '/css/print.css?rc3" media="print" />
Directly After this, but before the ';
ADD the following code:
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="', $settings['default_theme_url'], '/css/postratings.css?rc3" />STEP 5
: Scroll down to the bottom of the page, and Click on the SAVE CHANGES
button. ALL DONE! Repeat these steps for all other installed Custom Themes.
