Note that since i have not included upgrade files in V1.2 any custom edits will be lost if you uninstall V1.1


Thanks for letting us plus old litte old me hehe lol :)


First and foremost I want to give my props to Aku and everybody else, how created, coded, updated or improved this user cp.
I'm currently running it with manual installation as described on the first page's posts because stuff with the user cp mod didn't work satisfactorily, I only had a blank page.
Anyway, what I now want to do is to modify the standard profile section as to fit with this user cp and with my theme-settings - I have activated the left block panel in the profile screen, and so stuff with "Profile Info", "Modify Profile" etc. they bother me.
Yet I am new to smf and tp I'm experiencing little problems with orientate myself through all these thousands of documents. Therefore it would be very need if any of you tell me where to find the .php files I should take a closer look at (even if this sounds kinda silly to me).
Sure some of you might think this is too big for someone new, but I wanna give it a try. And I will have a closer look at the smf manual and the tp manual and many of code-lines over the weekend


I think you're looking to modify the Profile.template.php file.

One question.

So far I am unable to limit which themes are shown as selectable within usercp. I have set the default theme in smf and disallowed user theme selection. Within TP I don't have any themes ticked given it only applies to the theme selector box anyway. Despite this usercp seems just to enumerate the themes installed in the themes folder. Is there a way (or plan for there to be a way) for only those themes I select to be visible?. Thanks

The UserCP piggybacks on the actual SMF Profile. When a user clicks on "My Theme" in usercp , They are taken to the profile theme selection menu ( /index.php?action=theme;sa=pick;u=xx;sesc=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx)

The SMF profile selection menu shows all of the installed themes on a forum.

So i suppose to answer the question a lot quicker , No you cannot select themes to be selected by users , and i do not plan on including that anytime soon , if ever ( If it is included in would be in V3.0 , which is a good while away )
