Board Message

Displays a Message to your members and guests. This is my first add-on so its very simple... I originally created it for my forum to display Important Messages and Updates, but I decided to release it since others might find it handy.

Works with Xenforo 1.00
Installation
Import the XML through your AdminCP
Edit the PAGE_CONTAINER Template

Find
<xen:hook name="page_container_breadcrumb_top">
Add Below
<xen:include template="Board_Message_By_Kaiser" />
Now just set the options from your AdminCP.

Enjoy.

Next version is to figure how to add the block without the template edit.
And eventually take this further with conditions based on certain criteria.

zero posts - Hey, you never posted. Write something!
birthday - Happy Birthday Kaiser
date range - Don't forget to take part of our poll at xxxx.

I need to look at addons and reverse engineer to see how it's done.
Good job.

Thanks. Im still learning so hopefully in the future I can release more add-ons with better features. But I feel this is one is better being simple... just to display important stuff you know.

Simple is a good start.

Never underestimate simplicity. The simplistic things usually make the biggest impact were in most cases complexity is often never needed.

Nice release. Good job.

A suggestion. I just installed it for testing purposes. If no data is entered in the message the message table shows. I feel that it shouldn't.

Edit: never mind I just noticed in the options there's a enable/disable option.

Yes I am aware of that. I dont really see it as a problem, because if people wont use it, they can just disable it in the settings instead of leaving it empty. But I will look into it.

How about a cute little icon option :) Might make it stand out a bit more. Ideally with some default icons and option to upload one.

Yeah I edited my post to reflect that. I just ventured in the options.

Suggestion: The option to include html would be a nice option to have which would allow digitaldoctors request to include an icon.

How did you generate the Articles Tab ?
Just make a tab and link it to the forum ?
Code:

Works pretty good.
:)
