Is there any way I can have a single CMS widget? I'd like one "The Latest" to show on the side. I feel more than that for me is overkill on my layout, I'd rather keep most of the media on the media page itself. I can see how media sites can use a TOP VIDEOS widget, but others simply want to save space with single units. An additional Option would be to choose which category shows on the widget allowing for a "Featured" Video widget. Not sure how difficult that would be though.

I've seriously visited this thread about 20x times a day for the last 2 days hoping to see the CMS and Forum Sideblock added... lmao, I'm torturing myself here.

Maybe you're right. 48 hours appear to be a long time for someone who wants something simple. But stay in my shoes and think:
  1. I don't use to release simple things. I want to release something that will be useful to you (with the simple requirements) but on the same time to be useful to those with complicated requirements. To make the long story short. I'll not release a ready widget. I'll add in admincp a block generator. What it means?:
    1. You can select categories (All, or one, or multiple).
    2. You can select user (All or specific)
    3. You can select usergroup (All or specific)
    4. You can select type (Latest or Top)
    5. You can select the amount of videos to show
    6. And finally you can select if the code will appears in the screen (to copy+past it eg in vBadvanced blocks), or to AUTO create/insert the CMS widget or Forum block. This means that you'll not do anything manual. All will be automatic.
  2. Except this mod, I've another 50+ as you can see at https://www.teriakis.com/ As you can see clicking My Shop, still I was unable to find time even to list all my mods there.
  3. I'm working in a Forum module for WHMCS. The code is ready, but need to finish the responsive interface.
  4. I'm working in 2 custom mods.
And unfortunatelly the day has just 24 hours :(

Your site is looking VERY nice btw! and I understand completely, which is why I wasn't posting trying to bug you every moment either lol... just refreshing in silence hahaha. Your site is not done yet either right? looking forward to being able to check out some of the other products there. Thanks for the detailed response as well... just by that it shows you are very particular in what you do, so I'll show more patience and appreciation myself. Can't argue with a perfectionist... I'm the same way with my projects, I refuse to do the bare minimum if there is room for improvement. Thanks for everything you do here at vb.org

ver. 1.4.0 released

ver. 1.4.0 released with a nice new feature. Block Generator. You asked for a widget to show it in CMS page or in Forum sidebar. I'm giving you a Swiss knife to build almost any type of widget you want without to do nothing more than mouse clicks.

Available Options:
  • Select Category (All or Specific)
  • Exclude Categories
  • User (All or Specific separated them by comma)
  • Usergroups (All or Specific separated them by comma)
  • Show Newest or Most Viewed or Most Liked
  • Set the number of characters of title (to avoid long titles).
  • How many videos to show
  • Block Title
  • Choose to create widget for:
    • CMS
    • Forum
    • Both
Click Save and that's all. Widgets are ready. So simple. Only for CMS widgets you need an short extra work to add it in the Layout. Sorry but this is something that can't be done automatically. I'm not mind reader to know where you want to add it :)

To upgrade:
  1. Download version 1.4.0
  2. Upload
    1. admincp/videoclub_admin.php
    2. includes/xml/cpnav_videoclub.xml
    3. videoclub/includes/functions_blocks.php
  3. Import product-videoclub.xml
After all go to Video Club-> Block Generator and start ...playing with blocks :)

You got the point :) .... Yes, I'm. Actually perfectionmaniac. Just don't ask me if it helped me in my life or not. Started having doubts if perfectionist is advantage.

By the way, Block Generator is out there :)

Christos,

changing the total Videos to show from 5 to for example 2 in cms doesn't work.
After saving is again 5.

Do you mean that you created a block with 5 videos and then tried to make a new one with 2 videos? This is impossible. Block generator is a one pass procedure. Just creates blocks. If you want to change them, then, you must edit them from Widgets menu or Forum blocks menu.

Trying to change them from block generator you create a new block. Unless if you prefer to create new and then delete the old ones.

No. You misunderstand me.

And there are many PHP-Warnings in Forum like this:

Yes, I delete the forum-block.
And I changed the number of videos in the cms-widget-code to one.

DESC LIMIT 1

Removed my old widgets and build a set for fresh new with 2 videos. Work fine as you can see at:
https://www.cmsbulletin.com/demo/vb42/content.php

The "5" that you're seeing after saving is because you're redirecting in the form again to build (if you want) more blocks. And the form has the default 5. But this is for the new form and not for the one that you created before.

Ok I understand.

I'm at a loss for words... This MOD is brilliant! An amazing surprise to log in and see it posted! lol Can't thank you enough! Do you take custom paid mod requests btw?

Sidenote, Being a perfectionist IS an advantage, only when you perfect "balancing" your perfections ;)

I'm just getting around to testing, and I'm having the same problem I had before with the first version where when I click the like button it doesn't register, there was a way it was fixed, I just can't remember how.

***edit, actually the last issue was the button disappearing after click, which was remedied over a permissions issue during your build (the first media gallery mod), this issue is the button is not registering at all when being clicked, permissions have been double checked.

...
additionally, where can I find the CSS to change that bar color behind the "I like it" button?
