Styles Demo MOD


Styles Demo is a Styles Demo Board for phpBB 2.0 that can be used to demonstrate phpBB2 Styles. It is based on phpBB2 and requires a phpBB2 installation. It uses frames (like the phpBB2 Admin Panel). On the left you get a list of all installed styles and on the right the board using the chosen style.


I assume that the installation directory is called styles_demo and phpBB2 is already installed in styles_demo/phpBB2. Simply copy the content of the ZIP file over to styles_demo. Then change to the directory styles_demo/phpBB2/includes and rename one of the functions.php 2.x.x files to functions.php.Create following table in your database:

CREATE TABLE phpbb_themes_demo_info (   themes_id mediumint(8 ) unsigned NOT NULL auto_increment,   style_author varchar(50) NOT NULL default '',   style_version varchar(10) NOT NULL default '',   style_date date NOT NULL default '0000-00-00',   style_website varchar(100) NOT NULL default '',   style_views mediumint(8 ) unsigned NOT NULL default '0',   PRIMARY KEY  (themes_id) ) TYPE=MyISAM;

You’ll find it also in the file phpbb_themes_demo_info.sql. Modify the table name prefix if necessary. This table is used for additional information about a style. style_date and style_website are currently unused. You can use phpMyAdmin to admin this table. It’s not necessary to insert rows for all themes. They will be created automatically. However, you must use phpMyAdmin to set the author and the version.
