Version: 1.0

Re-Inspired By: Ricky6039's thread: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=114862

Thank Yous: Ricky6039, Boofo and Chris M

The posbit_legacy is displayed in reverse. For fluid and fixed-width layouts.

Here's an idea that was re-inspired by Ricky6039's thread. It was a layout I did in UBB back in the day (2001) and now releasing it for vB. This is the first layout in the series. Future releases may come depending on requests, capability and energy. :D

See attachments below.

What to expect?:
- Thread/Post title is displayed in place of Post Date.
- Post Date and Username are displayed in place of Thread/Post title.
- The user popup menu will display only in the first Username (left column). The second username link will go straight to user's profile.
- Replies will display just left of post #.
- User Online Status and User ID are displayed in the Username column.
- Online Status, Report Bad Post and IP images are replaced with text for a cleaner look.
- Message/Signature and User's info are bordered.

vB versions 3.5.3+ (3.5.4 should work; 3.5 versions possibly but I haven't tried it.)

That you are editing the Default vB Style or at least using the Default vB Style as a Parent Style.

Can it work for custom styles? Yes. You may, however, need to re-work some of the codes for the layout to display properly. I successfully did this on several custom templates. Since many of us are using different styles I thought it would be better to use the Default vB Style for the instructions.

Read the instructions carefully. Take your time when editing.

This is a template edit with quite a few steps so pace yourself. :)

Browsers Tested:
Internet Explorer & Firefox

I'll try to answer your questions the best I can. Please click install to notify you if any changes are made.

Download the .zip file, extract and read the instructions.

If you use this mod click the https://www.vbulletin.org/forum/ link for any updates via e-mail. Thank you.

Attachements in order:
1. posbit_legacy 100%
2. posbit_legacy 770px
3. postbit_legacy menu 770px

Please remember to go through the instructions thoroughly and slowly. Just the slightest miss of code can mess it up.

Click the "Install" only if you are satisified and use the mod. :)

That error is from the vbulletin_menu.js file but I'm unable to replicate it. It doesn't look like it's coming from my modification.

By any chance did you install vBShout?

VBUsers 07 May 2006 09:56

yes i have vbshout but its disabled. should i completly remove it? or the template edits if any are the cause?

ok i uninstalled the shout and the im online product i had disabled and it fixed my issue. thank you very much great hack.

Freesteyelz 07 May 2006 10:05

NP. I think Zero Tolerance released an update for the vBShout fix. You may want to check it out. :)

Thank you for clicking Install. :classic:

What if I wanted 2 postbit boxes? 1 on each side?

Similiar to a portal layout. Of course I would display other info not repeat the info.

Holidazed 07 May 2006 19:23

This is cool. However, I would like to see is swap from left to right on every other post in the thread. Can this be done?
