I agree, Valter! Thank you so much for a fabulous mod!

I had a similar issue with the CSS. Most of the styling was there, but it seemed to be missing the components from the additional.css template. (I'm not storing my style sheets externally/as files.)

Here's what worked for me to fix the styling of the rules page. I have no idea if this is the best way, but it seems harmless enough! LOL!

Edit the template Valter Templates vsa_frules and add the following after {vb:raw headinclude}:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.


Then scroll down to find the background and text colors for the "highlight" bars at the top and bottom of the rules page. Change them to match your color scheme, save, and you're good to go.

Hope this helps!

If browser has disabled JS, user will not be able to click "accept" button. Here fix:

In template "vsa_frules"
========================================

REPLACE:

<vb:if condition="($vboptions[vsafrules_time]==0)">value="{vb:rawphrase submit}"<vb:else />value="{vb:raw vboptions.vsafrules_time}" disabled="disabled"</vb:if> />

TO:

value="{vb:rawphrase submit}"

REPLACE:

function VSaFR_buttonCounter() { vsaafr_counter = fetch_object('vsaafr_counter');

TO:

vsaafr_counter = fetch_object('vsaafr_counter');
vsaafr_counter.disabled = true;
vsaafr_counter.value = '{vb:raw vboptions.vsafrules_time}';
function VSaFR_buttonCounter() {
=================================

Patched version here:

Hey, great addon.

How can I change the...
"I have read, and agree to abide by the *** ****** rules. " colour?
At the moment it's in black but my forum is dark so members cannot really see it.

Also how can I change so that the banner on the rules page is centered?
Thanks

Hi there!

I have one question. Is there any way to integrate It with VSa - ChatBox? I mean to create rules for ChatBox and before user accept it, he can't chat (for example displaying small notification to accept these rules instead of place to type the text).

Hi Valter,

thanks for this great mod.
I have two questions:

1. I want to disable the default rules. They are shown during registration anyhow. Is there a way I can do this?

2. The "forum rules" link in the Navbar should move as sublink to "useful links". How can I do this?

Regards
jluerken

First of all, great mod! Thank you!

Does everyone else see their Forums displayed by the proper display order when they click on the Apply to Forums link? Mine certainly don't, which makes if confusing if you have a large number of forums.

I would like to make a feature request. I would like a feature that forces users to accept the forum rules BEFORE they can do anything at all on the site.
