  • Re: Vanilla 1.1.9 Released

    The core development team stopped working on Vanilla 1 years ago and have been actively developing Vanilla 2 ever since. The open source community still releases patches to version 1. We highly advise that you use Vanilla 2 over Vanilla 1.

  • Re: embed-friendly themes

    The one on embed.vanillaforums.com is using a newer version of the embed-friendly theme that allows you to optionally switch the sidebar off. It will be coming out with the next release of vanilla (probably by the end of the month).

    /views/default.master.tpl is the master view for the theme. Every user-facing page (ie. not dashboard) uses it to draw the header and footer, and all content (panel, page content, etc) is placed within it. It uses a "tpl" extension because it uses smarty. If you want to start fresh with a PHP version instead of smarty, delete that file and copy in the php version from your /applications/dashboard/views/default.master.php

  • Re: how can i edit discussin title more than 100

    You'll need to alter your discussion table to allow more characters:

    ALTER TABLE GDN_Discussions CHANGE Name Name varchar(255);

    And then you'll need to implement a theme and remove the maxlength value from your form. Here's the offending line in /applications/vanilla/views/post/discussion.php:

    echo $this->Form->TextBox('Name', array('maxlength' => 100));
