A special thanks to Cherokee Red and The Caretaker for the idea.

As some of you know I created a mini tutorial on how to add a welcome message on your board. I didn't think it would get that much attention but it seems like many people are enjoying this.

I was recently contacted by Lefty74 and he has inspired me to take this tutorial a few steps further and has gotten me kicked off with the code.

This little tutorial has now grown into a mod. (My very first Mod Ever!)

BTW: If you have installed my tutorial on adding a welcome message in overall header, you will need to uninstall it before you install this mod.

I just noticed a couple minor fat fingers in subsilver2/overall_header.html file.

OPEN: styles/subsilver2/template/overall_header.html

FIND:
Code: Select all
<!-- IF not S_USER_LOGGED_IN --><br />{L_WELCOME_MESSAGE}<br /><br /><!-- ENDIF -->


REPLACE WITH:
Code: Select all
<!-- IF not S_USER_LOGGED_IN --><br />{L_WELCOME_MESSAGE}<br /><br /></strong><!-- ENDIF -->


FIND:
Code: Select all
</strong><span class=?genmed?>


REPLACE WITH:
Code: Select all
</strong></span>

I found a few more minor little glitches that I just fixed. Sorry about that.

Note to self: Don't ever try to write a mod when your kids are mis-behaving and distracting you. :blush:
