atm users have moderator powers only inside of the folders and posts that they have created themselves.
i felt that since they have the power of erasing their own posts anyways why not let them moderate them too.
this allows any user to come and instead of creating a simple post, creating a folder with many subfolders/posts, appoint mods inside and manage it literally like his own forum inside of your forum. so that you can someday have "societies within societies".
their moderator powers do not extend outside of their own creations.
someone with moderator power outside of this folder will be moderator of these moderators..
if you give someone mod power on the root of the forum this will give this person moderator power over the entire forum
i know thats kind of a crazy system, different from the traditional 1-level mod system. but the nodesforum has been conceived like that, hence the name nodesforum.
though maybe it could be possible in the future to have an option in the config to change this behavior so that posters do not have moderator powers over their own creations. but i kind of feel that this will deprive them from the possibility of starting their own subforums inside of your forum, which is kind of the idea.
or maybe another idea i had was to make it so that users have mod powers on the folders that they create but not the posts. but i felt that would influence posters to post their posts into a dummy folder just to have mod power on it. so i felt it was better to give same management power if you post a post or a folder to make sure that ppl only use a folder when they really wanna group things togheter.
the title of a page appears in the title bar of the browser and is also good for SEO
also the $_nodesforum_forum_name will be used in emails sent by the forum to design the forum (email to validate email address, forgotten password ect) but if you use your site's user system the forum will not send any email so that does not apply to your situation
the $_nodesforum_forum_description though does show on top of the root page of the forum just in the same way that the description of a folder will show on top of the page when you enter a folder.
these descriptions support the bbcode so you can use the bbcode to style your description
the td (table cell of the table tag) bbcode tag does have a "valign" attribute that can be set to top, middle or bottom to chose the vertical alignement inside of the cell.
I want to move that above where it says "logged in as".
oh i see.
well actually that does pose a problem because the login/logout bar is shown in body.php (top level display file) and the description of a folder is shown in bod_folder_view.php (included by body.php) along with the contents of the folders.
i think the best way to accomplish what you want to accomplish is to just add your own plain HTML on the body.php file where you want it.
and if you would like that this part of the text looks like the description you can see how the HTML code to make the folder description looks in bod_folder_view.php
it looks like that
<div style="height:4px;"><!-- --></div><div style="width:100%;"><table class="class_nodesforum_bgcolor3" style="width:100%;"><tr><td class="class_nodesforum_bgcolor2"><div class="class_nodesforum_inner">
//your stuff in html
