This looks interesting. I already have TerraFrost's "Log IP on registration" mod installed, and I also have the original "Country Flags" mod installed. If I try to install this mod, am I going to be facing an impossible task, in trying to avoid duplicating much of the code, or do you think that it will be easy to see what needs to be omitted. The logical thing to do would presumably be to uninstall those existing mods, but it's been so many years since I installed TerraFrost's mod, that I'm not even sure that I still have the files necessary to do that. I'll have to check, and play with it later, when I have more time. As I recall, the original Country Flags mod was pretty simple, though.

Thanks for a good-looking mod.

Greets,
the 'IP on Registration' stuff has been integrated under permission of Terrafrost but with flags, so I don't think you'll encounter any issue there.. just avoid to do the edits for that (described in the install.txt file).

About the other flag MOD, I got the Nuttzy99's permission to use parts of his code for this, I decided to modify it in order not to conflict with his MOD, so also here you should be safe.

Indeed, use a localhost and try it. I'm all hears.

Regards.

I appreciate your insight. I'm definitely going to give a try, as soon as I can find enough free time to do it.

Thanks again.

FYI.. Easymod will take about 3 minutes to install it.

I haven't used Easymod much lately, after it started choking on a lot of my files - I've probably got over 150 mods installed, so it doesn't work as well for me as it once did, at least not with certain mods.

I've scanned through the mod, and it appears to be pretty straightforward, so I shouldn't have any problem adding it manually. I'm going to have to go through and pick out all the entries for the "Log IP on registration" mod, anyway. To tell the truth, I enjoy adding mods manually, most of the time, because it's sort of a relaxing pastime, and sometimes I even learn something by doing it. icon_biggrin.gif

Hi 3Di,

I installed this mod today, and it works like a charm. I had to uninstall the RegIP and the Country Flags mods, first, though. I tried to install it with them both still in place, but there was so much unnecessary clutter, and confusion, due to all the overlap, that it was much easier to uninstall them first. I need to go back and re-install a few lines of code in a couple of files, and then I'll have the full functionality of TerraFrosts Log IP Address on Registration mod back in place, again.

I noticed one small issue with the mod, (though it's not a serious problem). In this part of the code:

Code:

#
#-----[ OPEN ]---------------------------------------------
#
templates/subSilver/index_body.tpl
#
#-----[ FIND ]------------------------------------------------
# The found value can be different, if other mods look for rowspan="2"
# look for    <td class="row1" align="center" valign="middle" rowspan="2"
#
   <td class="row1" align="center" valign="middle" rowspan="{%:1}"
#
#-----[ INCREMENT ]--------------------------------
#
# add 3 to the preceding value
# like rowspan="4"
%:1 +3
   


The first line found is not the correct one. (If you change the code there, it will result in about half of the statistics on the bottom of the index page being listed in a column on the left side). If, instead, you pass the first one up, and go to the second line found, the change will put all the data in the correct place, (across the bottom of the page).

For all I know, this might not be a problem with a plain vanilla subSilver/index_body.tpl. I've got so many mods on my board, that I may have added the extra line along with some mod, years ago.

Anyway, thanks for the mod - it's working great.

Greets, that code it is only for EasyMod or for those like you they know what they are doing there in the scripts MODding by hand. icon_wink.gif
Inded into a Vanilla phpBB using EM it will do its job perfectly, as I above mentioned.. being your Board MODded or not, I guess. icon_wink.gif

Notice: if you want to upgrade your DB of IPS to the latest I released please follow this link: http://ipcf.io3di.com/viewtopic.php?t=9

It will be my pleasure (once I will update the phpBB3 DB) to release the newest one, though.

Thanks and regards. icon_cool.gif

Thanks.
