Introduction:

When I first installed Zero Tolerence's Welcome Panel, I found that it had a lot of mistakes on my computer. I set out to make a new template for the hack - and I succeeded. This template is my rewrite of Zero Tolerence's hack.

This hack has one requirement:

Installation

Installation is a breeze! Follow these simple steps:
  1. Upload Files into folders.
  2. Install Welcome Panel Product

when you remove the old hack, all you have to do is get rid of the template and upload this one. Since zero's template was manually added [revert] in style manager should do the trick.

This looks EXACTLY like what I need. Any new ETA on version 2.3?? I'm eagerly waiting so I don't have to mess around with zt's plugin.

No. I'm having trouble with plugins so it won't be out for a while. Just install his plugins and I'll have detailed instructions on upgrading.

I'm not sure. That's a plugin problem. You'll need ZT's help for that one.

Umm, I installed this but I still seem to have only ZT's Welcome Panel showing. It's like I didn't do anything.

Steps performed:

1. Uploaded 2.2.0 xml file (checked overwrite)
2. Went to vb options --> Welcome Panel Re-write and submitted it.


I don't see any changes from the original hack on my site....?

3.6 is v2.2.0

Warlord, it seems that you forgot to delete his panel. Styles and Templates-> [REVERT] forumhome_welcomepanel (you might have two)

Yo KK... Is there a semi-easy way to get the font size to show up as smallfont in this magnificent mod?

Good job on this one!
