Important Notes

  • This extension requires the template events added in Until that is merged, you will need to apply the patch manually in order for the extension to work.
  • Note that this only works for Prosilver. subSilver2 does not have the username in the navigation bar and therefore does not have the events.

If there is interest, future versions may contain the following:

  • Customizable via the ACP
  • Different greeting based on user's board language (Hello, Hola, Anyeong, etc.)
  • Different greeting based on current time (good morning, good afternoon, good evening, etc.)
  • Different greeting based on day of the week (Happy Monday!, TGIF!, etc.)
  • Different greeting based on specific date (e.g. Happy New Years!, Merry Christmas!, Happy Hanukkah!, etc.)
  • Rotating messages (i.e. have it randomly pick between a set of messages, like Hello, Hi, 'Sup, etc.)
  • More?
