I guess ALL our templates should be BLACK text regardless of which one is chosen..

As per your request, all your template (other than vb Default) have now as link color in sidebar #000000 (Black) and hover #FFFFFF (white).

I am the owner/moderator .. ;)

So, for clarity.. when you tested to see if you could make sidebars on our site work, you changed nothing?

Question: Is the right panel in home screen programmed as a sidebar in your code, which is why the unnecessary double arrow appears in video club, but on no other add-on or vBulletin page we use has it showing?

Thanks..

Doug

If you want PM me your own login details to check it.

Edit: Ignore it. As you can't see sidebar with my login, is not a permissions error.

.

No. Sidebar was active. The reason that it invisible is because your 3 blocks there were inactive. Sidebar appears in 2 ways:
1.- If it's active
2.- If there are active blocks.

As a proof that the sidebar was already active is that you can't build any block with inactive sidebar. There is a message with a link to activate it.

The only that I did was to cleate a block of latest threads, to get a screenshot and then to delete the block.

BUT AGAIN !! I can see perfectly the sidebar in video pages with FF 52.0.2. Is a problem with your own installation of FF. And if I remember well you said that with Safari you can see it. Is NOT a functionality error. Is a local (computer) error. Do you have the possibility to try your site from another computer?

Something is going wrong with you styles but don't know what. While the child Templates of mil.... Templates set were auto updated, the first 3 three updated only the hover color and not the link. I've changed those 3 one by one and I checked them.

BadgerDog 17 Apr 2017 19:34

Chris.. I fixed it...

I repeated the steps you did to test sidebars ..

1. Turned ON the sidebar option in vBulletin in AdminCP
2. Activated Forum Threads sidebar for ALL forums as a test...
3. Went to our site home page and saw the same jumble you saw when I clicked on the side bar to pop out from the left.
4. Clicked Video Club link and the main home page now had the right panel back !!!
5. Went back into AdminCP and de-activated Forum Threads sidebar for ALL forums ..
6.. Turned OFF the sidebar option in vBulletin in AdminCP.

Re-checked Video Club home page and the right panel is still there, so by reversing your steps, it seems to have solved the problem with my FireFox browser ..

The blue/grey text replace with black/whie looks great with the templates marked..

Light
--Dark
---Medium

It's still blue/grey when selecting..

--Milsurps Templates
---- SSL Milsurps Templates
---------Milsurps.com Light
---------Milsurps.Com Medium
---------Milsurps.Com Dark

Thanks.. :)

Regards,
Doug

BadgerDog 17 Apr 2017 19:45

Chris... I've checked again and I see you must have worked on the various templates some more.. thanks ... :)

The blue/grey text replace with black/whie looks great with the templates marked..

Here's what I see runnign through the various templates..

Light ...... OK
--Dark .....OK
---Medium OK

--Default (still blue/grey)

--Milsurps Templates (still blue/grey)
---- SSL Milsurps Templates (still blue/grey)
---------Milsurps.com Light ..... OK
---------Milsurps.Com Medium (still blue/grey)
---------Milsurps.Com Dark .......OK

Doug

Only the Milsurps.Com Medium I found it not updated. Milsurps Templates and SSL Milsurps Templates as you can see in the attached screenshots are ok.

The problem is why, even if I'm getting message for updating child templates (showing the names), they don't really update.

What happen with sidebar? Have you found any other computer to test it?

Chris.... :)

Sent you an additional PayPal for the extra work you performed on our site, assisting with the text coloring etc.... much appreciated.... :up:

We're going to start planning for going live for our membership sometime this weekend, but we wanted to do further testing with the PM functions of "approving, rejecting etc.." first, to make sure there's no issues with that function.

I mentioned it earlier, but some thoughts for future design features we'd like to see, which some other mods similar to yours currently offer. It would be great if Video Club was capable of...

1. Allowing a user (or Admins) to EDIT existing video article information and perhaps also edit and change the existing thumbnail pic, like they can when first adding the video to the club, that would be an excellent function ..

2. An option (perhaps in AdminCP settings?) to have TAGS shown or not shown in the mod's video display screen. In my opinion, they clutter the display and my experience has been a lot of our members would never use them, as they don't even use the ones in vBulletin, so it would be great if we could turn them off being displayed at all.

Thanks again for all your work... :up:

Regards,
Doug

Thank you very much for your continous support Doug. Really appreciated. Soon I'll PM you details, as I'm planing to start operating my site.

To be honest I just changed the lists there. Haven't tested PMs but as they were working fine at my Media Gallery mod, I'm sure that they'll work fine on this mod too.

hmmm...... There is a legal problem here which I need to read more in depth. Actually the original code was supporting Add/Edit so I did extra work to remove the Edit code. The problem is that providers does not allows any data modifications. They asked users to keep same title, description etc, as they count it copyright of the original poster.

This can be done. I'll add it.

You're welcome Chris .. :)

We do not want members uploading a bunch of crap, so we do want to control and moderate which groups can upload and which can't.

Ok, I just started testing the PM function and it doesn't seem to work as designed...

I had a user called "tester" who uploaded a YouTube video just fine. It told him (message quickly flashed by) it was being submitted for approval before posting and returned to the main screen. Just an idea.. the message that it's being submitted for approval comes and goes so fast, I think there's going to be a lot of problems with people who can't read it quick enough and as a result, when they don't see there video on the main screen, they'll keep uploading it over and over again, thinking the previous upload didn't work. How about a HUGE message (admin phase configurable?) where it STOPS, they read it and then have to hit enter to go on... or, something like that?

Now to the main problem....

The designated user ID (default was userid 1 but we changed it to 31098), who is supposed to receive notices and moderate, never sees anything indicating there's a video to approve?

I even checked user ID 1 (Admin) to see if it went there and no, it didn't?

The original uploader called "tester" sees his video in his "My Videos" area, but not on the main screen, so I know the uploaded video is there someplace. By the way, you should mark videos in the "My Videos" area as "Waiting for Approval to Post", or something like that, so the original uploader knows it's status and it's still waiting for approval.

I've attached the Usergroup settings for the uploader, who can do everything shown, except moderate and they must have videos approved.

By the way, as an aside... the Admin Usergroup has ALL boxes checked, yet they can freely upload without having to ge approval from anyone, so I don't think that setting, by accident or design, is work the way you want?

Hope this helps figure out where the issue is..

Regards,
Doug

Redirection messages have the same speed all over all vB functions. Don't know if the delay can be changed somewhere in 1000's vB settings, but I can't change the delay.

What I can do is to add one more setting and admin selects if he wants redirection or halt pages. Halt page means a static page where the user must clicks a link to continue. Maybe it's sound better but believe me is frustated for most users especially if they want to add many videos.

I don't think that any vB action which needs approval (eg normal post) has any type of notification. Moderators are responsible to visit ModCP from time to time to check what is under upproval. In anycase is not a big deal to add such notification. Just keep in mind that the id that you'll setup to be an active id. Moste webmasters are registering a system account to control such "noreply" messages and never check them.

I'll check it, but I'm almost sure that it works. The video appears in "My Videos" page with remark: Awaiting Approval (red color). The phrase to change the text is: videoclub_unapproved

They're correct.

Users who have permission to Moderate don't need approval even if the setting "Needs Approval" is on. And this is logic. Why I (as Moderator) need to approve my own videos? Is it possible to reject it? :)
