Topic: Smiles Question, Login Script from Website, and other questions
Hey guys--first off, let me say I love punBB.
I've been an heavy IPB forums user, but after about a month
working on a friend's site, I still couldn't get IPB v1.3 to be intergrated :x
Anyways, not even 30mins after I downloaded, and burned, the ZIP file
for punBB, got it running on my other comp (I have server setup) as a test.
Not even 10mins past that point, about 40mins since finding punBB,
I had it COMPLETELY customized and skinned to match my site!!
But now, I have a few questions for you guys,
as while I have some pretty good working PHP knowledge,
its not NEARLY enough to be able to figure this out....
1) I have made some cool smiles; I've added them to my
smiles folder, but how do I make it so if I do say
it'll show the mad.gif smile? etc.
2) How would I go about making an simple PHP/mySQL script
to process the user/password entered into a forms field, so it'll
log the person in and forward them to the forums base_url?
If someone has a pre-made one / example, please post
3) I wish to modify, at least by radically changing the colors
for the forums layout, punBB; I read through the GNU, but I admit
I think most of it went over my head past the 50th or so line.
My question is, am I allowed to modify punBB, and release
it as 'gdBB' or some similar name, as long as I keep the
copyright info in the files, as well as the 'Powered by punBB' line/link?
4) I'd like to use my html table coding, produced by ImageReady (Adobe),
so that my heaeer is this awsome image I've been working on; point is,
how would I go about doing this?? I tried just div align and the img tags
in the description, but then it makes me put in a board name which,
very saddly, causes the image to mess up totally; plus the fact
it forces the image to be very poor quality as I must make it whole,
instead of a few "slice" images...
<EDIT>Scatch the smiles post, idiot me just found the 'HOWTO' topic lol</EDIT>
