Another mod brought to you by,


This is a pretty cool mod that completely redesigns your forums footer. It adds everything into a block, and has four columns to display different info in them.
Inspiration came from Advanced Footer Rework coded by The Rocketeer and Awesome footer with Social Icons coded by socialteenz. Problem with those two mods that I had is it was all template editing, and I really don't like template edit mods on sites, I prefer it is all done automatically.

Another feature of this mod, is there is settings for the mod, that you can enter any custom code that any other mods have told you to add to the beginning or end of your footer. Again, this is designed so you do not have to do template editing.

It is a simple installation, upload the contents of the UPLOAD folder then import the product XML, ozzmodz_advanced_footer

You can edit the options under the settings, [OzzModz] Advanced Footer Settings
There is three ACP interface pages to add/edit the recommended links, quick links and the social media links.

Below is what the mod looks like running on the site.



Major Features

No Additional Queries: The awesome part of this mod is it uses the datastore, so it adds no additional queries to the site.

Disable On Styles: You can disable this mod on any style, in case it breaks the style.

Interactive Main ACP Pages: When viewing the links you added, you can set the display order, toggle the active status, toggle the _nofollow and toggle if the site opens in a new tab or same tab, all without editing each entry individually.

Unlimited Links: You can have as many links in each column as you want, there is no limits..

Usergroup Permissions: When adding or editing a link, you can select which usergroups can see the link.

It inherits the properties of all styles smoothly, from what I've seen.

Yeah it will inherit the style, but it may break some custom styles that don't use the traditional footer coding.

I don't believe there were any changes in the files from beta 4 to now, but it don't hurt to upload them.
