Idea, There are many smart people on here who have found good ways to save money --bviously some can only be shared on the secret groups, which I dont even know of-- though many can be shared.
Many of us who found ways to save can benefit from learning new ways. Especially during these difficult times for many.

Idea is to interview people who found ways to spend smarter etc. And write them up on ddms.
I know this is work, but the gain will certainly outweigh the work

Um pretty sure making money has its secrets or finding deals but if your referring to savings money to have in your account thatís just just requires self discipline.

Like has Dave Ramsey ever said a brainstorm?

No. I'm referring to systems. Like buying last minute flights with miles as opposed to cash. Eg. Dan posts about buying visa gift cards then using those cards for shopping..
Owning stock in brk gives discounts on geico insurance.
...
Fill on your own .

Reason for interviews style is so it should be adaptable for your regular person who doesn't make it to all the forums.
I think it will bring new traffic, and will probably be reposted on other sites too.

Even sharing ideas that are already written can benefit the masses.
Did you know most Nobel prize winners received their prize for bringing an idea that already existed to the masses. Not for coming up with a new ingenious idea. Sadly many good ideas do see their potential

We are also supposed to get daily emails about all the sanitizing you do.

DeBlasio seems to think it is a whole month.
Just because things turned out a certain way doesn't mean you were right.

I'm going to try to work on this one of these days. I'm a little rusty in this.

Can I take a shortcut and only do the ones that show up on the users side? Like something like Google analytics I'm not sure what it does but I don't think there's any difference for the user. But it will still be accessible from the main theme.

I was just seeing what I should change the colors to. Way too monotonous. No?

The avatar will be the avatar of the OP for each thread but still.

This is my progress so far  :-[ basically everything has a problem
Code: [Select]
I didn't do any edits that said they were optional
I noticed by google analytics that there are some file operations that are done (which I currently didn't do). I have to recheck the other mods if those have some as well



reCAPTCHA for SMF   1.0.0---------------------I can't find GenericControls.template.php
Tapatalk SMF 2.0 Plugin   4.5.2---------------This is a tapatalk mod there's no instructions for file edits on Simple Machines website.
SMF 2.0.14 Update   1.0-----------------------Didn't attempt the edits. I assume it will be fine if the default theme has been updated.
@mention members   1.1.2 --------------------- I can't find the Modifications.english.php file so i put it in the ThemeStrings.english.php file
Embed Tweet BBCode   1.1.1---------------------I assumed this is vbgamer45's mod. And I can't find the Modifications.english.php file so i put it in the ThemeStrings.english.php file
Like Posts   2.0.5 ---------------------------done? have to check if I need third edit                               
Yet Another YouTube BBCode Tag   3.11----------couldn't find ManageSettings.english.php so added to Settings.english.php and couldn't find index.english.php so added to ThemeStrings.english.php---------------has file operations that weren't done
IPv6 Support   1.0.1---------------------------no edits needed
Topic Wiki   0.1.3b----------------------------don't have access to this mod
Member Color Link   3.1------------------------says incompatible with smf 2.0.14 ? either way I don't know if I want to mess with the colors of the theme
Ignore Topics   2.3----------------------------I can't find the Modifications.english.php file so i put it in the ThemeStrings.english.php file
Google Analytics Code   1.4--------------------No edits needed. Although I just noticed there are some file operations that are done, I'm not sure if those also have to be done manually in the theme.
AJAX Instant Quick Reply   1.0.4---------------says incompatible with smf 2.0.14 ? so didn't do it
Guest Registration Notification   1.2----------says incompatible with smf 2.0.14 ? so didn't do it
httpBL   2.5.1---------------------------------couldn't do this because couldn't find the text needed in Who.template.php---------------------has file operations
Bad Behavior mod   1.3.0
Stop Forum Spam   0.8

I think it would be better for me to figure out how to get a fresh version of 2.0.14 then install all the mods (that are compatible) directly and copy the files.
