Introduction:

When I first installed Zero Tolerence's Welcome Panel, I found that it had a lot of mistakes on my computer. I set out to make a new template for the hack - and I succeeded. This template is my rewrite of Zero Tolerence's hack.

This Hack Made Possible By Zero Tolerance

Please Remove Zero Tolerance's Plugins When Upgrading from a Previous Version!

Hack Requirements:
This hack has one requirement:
  1. vBulletin v3.6.0 or higher. (Confirmed working with vB 3.7.0 RC1)
Installation

Installation is a breeze! Follow these simple steps:
  1. Upload Files into folders.
  2. Install Welcome Panel Product
  3. Customize!
Yes, it's that simple.

I'd very much like to seen your screenshots, this looks quite nice! :D

Sweet as a pie! I have been waiting for this release though it really took a bit of time. I can't wait for the further planned features. Thanks King and keep the great work! :)

/me clicks on install

King Kovifor 12 Jun 2006 18:59

Lil Ripsta, it took some time, as I needed a 3.6.0 board, and the license i was attached to expired. So, now I'm back. Screenshots, later today, with most variations. There are two things that I can't get too: no avatar & image links. I haven't gotten them uploaded. I'm glad there's people who were wanting this. :)

EDIT:

Screenshots Added

Is there any change compaired to the 3.5 version? I doubt it, since no file in that zip is changed since april.

PS Also moved to correct forum

Allan 12 Jun 2006 23:43

The posting was just a port. I've actually added a new feature to vB 3.6 which I'll be uploading now. :)

Visit the 3.5.x thread for the 3.5.4 version... The FAQ part isn't on 3.5, but it is in the 3.6.0 version.

C_P 14 Jun 2006 15:05

FYI, just for testing purposes, I installed the 3.5.4 version and in working with King Kovifor I uploaded the 3.6 version of the xml and have no issues. It does not load the 3.6 FAQ's portion. Good suff.

is it possible to resize the avatar only for the welcome panel?

Digital2 15 Jun 2006 16:02

Installed on 3.6.0 beta 2 here and nothing works. I see no change to the forums. I imported the plugin's from Zero Tolerances hack and your 2.2 product. The template was created by the installer but I do not see any change to the boards at all. Am I missing something?

Digital2,

I currently have a 3.6.0 Beta 1 board, so I haven't noticed any errors. If you'd like me to look at it personally, I need a test account to log in to. If you'd like to send the test account login information through PM, your welcome too. But it should add a welcome panel as in the Screenshot onto the forum home.

Try Taking These Steps:

ACP -> vBulletin Options -> Welcome Panel Template Rewrite -> On/Off -> Switch to on if it's off.

Digital2 15 Jun 2006 21:09

It was in the on position already by default. I will set you a test account up and PM you the info here.
