              Okay

              But I just cannot see it as the only templates the Carbon Theme uses are index.template.php and boardindex.php

              The only thing I can think of is that one of the other modes messes with the JS Libaries

                Hmm well I will just forget about the MOD don't want to unnecessary go on with a MOD which as u said is not written correctly..

                One of my friend also tried it on his site which was SMF 1.2 or some other version even on it the mod was not working..

                  Cna you please check the Board Rules Global Announcement on my forum and see whats wrong with the MOD??

                  When u click on GA nothing opens just a blank page..

                  This is an important MOD so would like to set it correct..

                    Okay I have had a look and the mod has a number of Functions missing in the package

                    namely

                    Announcements_view


                    The best bet is to contact the Author but from reading the thread at SMF he / she doesn't seem very interested

                    apologies for bad news

                      LOL I know I already posted a request there...

                      Why do users create such MOD's that they don't want to support' I wounder !!

                      And here on GM we have Solo I asked him some details on one of his MOD and he explained it so nice I guess he deserves a loud round of applause..

                      :)

                        Ahhh, thanks Mr X, really appreciate the kind words.  I completely agree with you, however, there can be many reasons why MOD authors don't support their MODs.

                        1. Just doesn't have the time (this is most likely the case).
                        2. Doesn't have access to or own a computer anymore.
                        3. Author is locked up in Jail...lol, but could be the case.
                        4. Author is more interested in MODs that they sell, and only offer support for these MODs.
                        5. Author is no longer alive (DECEASED).
                        and the list goes on and on...

                        Usually if a MOD is good enough, you will notice other members giving support for that MOD and possibly the MOD Author also.  This is a great thing for a MOD Author as this helps them in many ways so they can focus on other things.  And also makes them appreciate such users even more.  I can't speak for all MOD authors, but I believe most of them feel this way.  I know I definitely do.

                        Well, in short, I stand behind all of my PROJECTS and whether they are free or not, doesn't make a difference to me.  Although all of my projects that are publicly known at the moment are FREE.  IMO, it doesn't take much to give support for a project you created.  But is the very little things that you do that make a big difference in the end.  As I'm sure that maybe one day when I decide to actually sell one of my huge projects, you will remember me in a positive way from all of the FREE projects that I made and supported.

                        Well, just my 2 cents :thumbsup:

                            Wow that was big Solo but I totally agree with u on the point ( But is the very little things that you do that make a big difference in the end. )

                            Wish more Authors where like you and more theme designers were like Shortie who tried to help users who didn't get the opportunity to learn somethings or  are are beginners and learning to improve...

                            Just wish that the authors do reply to the posts I have made in the comments of the MOD's so as to improve my site or will have to either shut by forum as I mentioned earlier (But Shortie Gave Me Hope) or shift it to some other board software like PHPbb or something else..

                            :(

                              Well, I'm a bit busy at the moment with another MOD, but if he doesn't respond within a week, if you are willing to give me FTP access to your files and Admin rights on your forum, I may be able to solve your problem permanently.  Though, will need you to re-state what the problems is again.  You can PM me if you want, but give it a few days, since the MOD Author should be able to spot the problem much easier than I can and possibly help you better with it.

                              This is 1 of the reasons WHY we could use the PM Attachments here at GM Shortie :Pif you would be so kind enough as to install it...?

                                Hmmm thats really kind of you Solo..

                                I don't have any problem giving u ADMIN rights on the forum and FTP access however would request you not to use the FTP for saving data like movie's/application or stuff like that cause the hosting provider may suspend the acct if some stuff like that is found...

                                Btw I can wait for sometime till u finish ur MOD since ur busy with it as of now and see how things are going in the mean time...

                                Thanks again for you kind help..
