Hey,

Sorry if this is in the wrong area :)

I'm currently building a responsive template for MiniBB 3.2 (Default Package not compiled) and just wondered about the following:

1) what is go.html used for? and how to trigger/load that element so i can check it?

2) how to load main_forums.html?

Thanks :)

Hello,

1) go.html is used for specific servers, which do not support "header" function for redirections - then they will use this template for meta-header redirection. It's left from the ancient times, and probably today mostly all servers support "header". However earlier versions of IIS didn't do that; may be some other servers now, not sure. How to trigger: edit setup_options.php and de-comment/set up $metaLocation parameter; refer to the manual for more infos.

2) Edit setup_options.php and set up this:

$startPageModern=FALSE;

It will load the "old-school" forums layout, which besides of this template, also use some others. They all are listed in the Manual as well.

Sorry, it seems this one left from our public forum, and it should not be present in the default version. I'll fix this soon; by now you may just safely remove this tag.

Thanks.

Last 2 questions lol. Did a search and looked in the manual but still no clearer.

1. whats the difference between {$mbpn} and {$pageNavExtra}? So far (visually) I only seen pageNavExtra so are they both needed?

2. Whats the best way to test posthold.html

Thanks again for the help. :)

I think $mbpn adds a margin only so it's only visual CSS thing. One way to test posthold is to enter a wrong password of an already-registered user and submitting the form.

{$mbpn} just adds a space between page navigation and the next table in a column, if page navigation is present. If there's no page navigation, this tag is not involved.

A precisement: it should be a message or topic posting form.
