Hi,

Can somebody tell me how to change the text and add /remove tabs in the Discussion
Board module?

I have been struggling to find anything and any help would be greatly appreciated.

Still have to say this is one of the best CMS systems I have come across and I am
enjoying getting to grips with it.

Hi Khorvat,

Thanks for the speedy responce...

Initially I just want to change add new topic to ask a question and may want to remove the new topics tab?

I hope this makes sense as I am trying to set it up more as a Q&A board.

Cheers,

Hi PatrickH,

To do so you need to override MonoX DiscussionBoard and DiscussionTopics modules and add them to DiscussionContainer module.

Here is a code snippet for DiscussionBoard module:

1. DiscussionBoard Markup:

<%@ Control Language="C#"
    AutoEventWireup="True"
    CodeBehind="DiscussionBoard.ascx.cs"
    Inherits="YourNamespace.DiscussionBoard"
%>
     
     
<%@ Register Namespace="MonoSoftware.Web.Pager" Assembly="MonoSoftware.Web.Pager"
    TagPrefix="mono" %>
<%@ Register TagPrefix="MonoX" TagName="StyledButton" Src="/MonoX/controls/StyledButton.ascx" %>
<%@ Register Src="/MonoX/controls/CustomRadEditor.ascx" TagPrefix="mono" TagName="CustomRadEditor" %>
<%@ Register TagPrefix="MonoX" TagName="UserEntry" Src="/MonoX/controls/UserPicker.ascx" %>
 
<asp:UpdatePanel ID="upNewBoard" runat="server" UpdateMode="Conditional" ChildrenAsTriggers="true">
    <ContentTemplate>
        <div style="overflow: hidden;">           
            <asp:HyperLink ID="lnkLastActiveTopics" runat="server" CssClass="discussion-link" ></asp:HyperLink>
            <asp:HyperLink ID="lnkMyTopics" runat="server" CssClass="discussion-link" ></asp:HyperLink>                      
            <asp:UpdateProgress ID="upTop" runat="server" DisplayAfter="0" DynamicLayout="true">
                <ProgressTemplate>
                    <img src='<%= BaseSiteFullUrl %>/App_Themes/<%= Page.Theme %>/img/loading.gif' alt="Progress ..."
                        width="20px" class="progress" />
                </ProgressTemplate>
            </asp:UpdateProgress>
            <MonoX:StyledButton ID="btnNewBoard" runat="server" CssClass="discussion-button" />
        </div>
        <div class="discussion board-container">
            <asp:PlaceHolder ID="plhNewBoard" runat="server" Visible="false">
                <div class="input-form discussion-form">
                    <dl>
                        <dd>
                             <asp:ValidationSummary ID="summary" runat="server" DisplayMode="List" ShowSummary="true" />
                        </dd>
                        <dd>
                            <asp:Label ID="lblBoardName" runat="server" AssociatedControlID="txtBoardName"></asp:Label>
                            <asp:TextBox ID="txtBoardName" runat="server"></asp:TextBox>
                            <asp:RequiredFieldValidator ID="vldRequiredBoardName" runat="server" ControlToValidate="txtBoardName" Text="!" CssClass="validator ValidatorAdapter" Display="Dynamic" />
                        </dd>
                        <dd>
                            <asp:Label ID="lblBoardDescription" runat="server" AssociatedControlID="txtBoardDescription"></asp:Label>
                            <asp:TextBox ID="txtBoardDescription" runat="server" TextMode="MultiLine" Rows="10"></asp:TextBox>
                            <div>
                                <mono:CustomRadEditor Width="100%" ID="radBoardDescription"  EditModes="Design"
                                    runat="server" ToolBarMode="ShowOnFocus" StripFormattingOptions="AllExceptNewLines" ></mono:CustomRadEditor>
                            </div>
                        </dd>
                        <dd>
                            <asp:Label ID="lblEditors" runat="server" AssociatedControlID="ddlEditors"></asp:Label>
                            <div>
                                <MonoX:UserEntry runat="server" Height="200" Width="98%" ID="ddlEditors" UserFilterMode="ShowAllUsers" ExcludeMySelf="false" />
                            </div>
                        </dd>
                        <dd id="rowAutoSubscribe" runat="server">                       
                            <asp:CheckBox ID="chkSubscribe" runat="server" Checked="true" />
                            <asp:Label ID="labSubscribe" runat="server" AssociatedControlID="chkSubscribe"></asp:Label>
                        </dd>
                        <dd id="rowRoles" runat="server">
                            <asp:Label ID="labRoles" runat="server" AssociatedControlID="chkRoles"></asp:Label>
                            <asp:CheckBoxList ID="chkRoles" runat="server" CellSpacing="10" 
                                RepeatColumns="5" RepeatDirection="Horizontal" RepeatLayout="Table">
                            </asp:CheckBoxList>
                        </dd>
                        <dd>
                            <MonoX:StyledButton ID="btnSaveNewBoard" runat="server" CommandName="Save" CssClass="discussion-styled-button" />
                            <MonoX:StyledButton ID="btnCancelNewBoard" runat="server" CausesValidation="false" CssClass="discussion-styled-button" />
                        </dd>
                    </dl>
                </div>
            </asp:PlaceHolder>
            <asp:ListView ID="lvDB" runat="server">
                <LayoutTemplate>                   
                    <asp:PlaceHolder ID="itemPlaceholder" runat="server"></asp:PlaceHolder>                       
                </LayoutTemplate>
                <ItemTemplate>
                </ItemTemplate>
            </asp:ListView>           
        </div>
        <div style="clear: both">
            <mono:Pager runat="server" ID="pager" PageSize="10" NumericButtonCount="5" AllowCustomPaging="true"
                AutoPaging="false">
                <PagerTemplate>
                </PagerTemplate>
            </mono:Pager>
        </div>
    </ContentTemplate>
</asp:UpdatePanel>

2. Code Behind:

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Web;
using System.Web.UI;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls;
 
namespace YourNamespace
{
    public partial class DiscussionBoard : MonoSoftware.MonoX.ModuleGallery.SocialNetworking.DiscussionBoard
    {
        protected override void OnPreRender(EventArgs e)
        {
            base.OnPreRender(e);
            lnkLastActiveTopics.Visible = false;
             
        }
    }
}

You need to repeat this two steps for DiscussionTopics module and set the btnNewTopic text in code behind.

Please note that you need to replace "YourNamespace" with the one you use. When you finish those two user controls you need to add them to Discussion container.

Regards.
