[mccode] Icons

This, I'm sure has been done before, however I just I'd post my version... Nothing special really, just a little set of colorful icons above the menu as indicators. When you "mouse-over" each icon you get a little descriptive tooltip.

There are icons for : Announcements, Events, Mail, Bank (Standard + Cyber), Job, and Education.

It is of course simple to extend... But I will leave that up to you.

Screenie and images from http://nyna.co.uk/gallery/ (DBS/MCcode Mods -> Icons)

Installation:

1. Upload the 6 small images (glyphs) to an icons folder in your public html folder.

2 . Make the following changes to header.php

a) Add the following to the <style>...</style> block:

8 Lines of code ... Hmm, how's that for small :D

Enjoy folks

Wrong...

  • display_icons() returns a void - not valid text
  • display_icons should explicitly be in the headers class - hence the use of $this->
  • In my view, this is not a global function - it's specific to the display headers, hence it's location

Re: Free 2 - Icons

It's 8 lines - how complex can that be?

My instructions are plain .. read through them carefully, ignore Killah's post, he's obviously got the wrong end of the stick.

I can't tell you *exactly* where to put things - I don't have access to your source code. I suspect you have all modified your source files rather a lot (at least I hope so).

This may be different on your system ... I don't know. I have no idea what changes you have made (or for that matter how different my version is from the original)

Re: Free 2 - Icons

Why not just make it a global func and allow them to put where ever they want? like

Re: Free 2 - Icons

Well assuming

a) you have not changed the contents of the function display_icons()

b) you are running on a V2 system

c) have placed the display_icons() function in the headers class as instructed

Then there is a problem...

But as you have not posted your code -- only the bits that I created, I can't tell what the problem is...

As a hint... true adding a line as the last line in display_icons() :

If your output does not change, then you are not calling display_icons() correctly.

btw. global_func is NOT the place to put this function... there is good reason for having it in the headers class.
