      Tried to send you a beer but Paypal keeps throwing an error on it.
    • hgtonight
      @data66 Glad you like Yaga. Is the donate button on the settings page what threw the error?

    Hi hgtonight, In the Thread /13547/sorting-discussions-by-votes you gave an answer on how to sort the discussion by votes, by changing a file. As I am new to vanilla I don´t know what file I need to edit. Thanks in advance.

    Ahh I see.If i change the Role/group a category belongs to, does the category tree need to be rebuilt to reflect the changes or is it good as it is?

    • hgtonight
      Categories don't belong to roles or groups. Categories __can__ have custom permissions. Roles can have those custom permissions.

      You shouldn't have to rebuild the tree during normal admin operations.

    Hi hgtonight,

    Do you know why I reach limit posting on discussion by sending two messages ?

    I have all day this message - Your comment will appear after it is approved.

    On this discussion - /discussion/comment/231378

    When will be approved ? Did I do something wrong?

    maybe this is a little bit inadequated but I want to ask you if you know or have a clue how to implement a parallax in my theme.

    Thank you for any insight. :)

    • hgtonight
      I am not a great person to ask. I would just google it.

      @vrijvlinder may be able to help.

    Thank you for all you do for Vanilla Forums! I was looking for someone to help point me in the right direction for something specific. I'd like to give authors of discussions the ability to moderate their own discussion threads. Either hide specific comments, or ban a user from that thread entirely - hiding all of that user's comments in the process. I wanted them hidden though, so abuse can be spotted and reviewed.

    Have you heard of a plug-in similar to this, or are there any examples that you know of that will help me in developing one? I'm familiar with PHP and JavaScript, just not the APIs for Vanilla Forums.

  • Sicnus

    Thanks btw for your kind responses and trying to help. Headed off to bed. I'll check things in the morning. I went to: $mysite.com/discussions/user and it didn't show anything but perhaps you meant: $mysite.com/discussions/$user


    Sleepy times for me!
