Want to create your very own vBulletin powered page which includes the header, footer, and the user permissions system as well?

Well now you can :D

Want to know how it will look? Take a look at the attached screenshot below! :)

Now includes the Who's Online modification! :)
Also, instructions included on how to create your own pages that are integrated with current vBulletin files! :D

I'm going to give you a generic page but you can easily modify the contents of the page by changing the template ;)

So here we go :)

Instructions:

Create a new file, whatever you want to call it (let's say test.php).
Open up test.php and add the following (replace TEST with whatever template you want to show):
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Be sure to change 'TEST' to the actual template name, and change 'test' to the filename. Also, change 'Test Page' to whatever you want to show in the navbar, such as 'Viewing Member Profile' (just an example).

Now create the template, called TEST with the following content:
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

All done :D
Now check it out by going to test.php ;)

Who's Online Modification

Now if you want to show who is browsing this new page of yours, just open up includes/functions_online.php and find:
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Below, add:
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

(Be sure to change the values to your own!)

Then find:
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Below add:
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

All done! :D

----------------------------------

Also if you want to create your own pages 'within' current vBulletin files, do the following:

Open the file you want, and then right before the final ?> in the source code, add the following:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Replace 'xxx' with whatever you want ?do= in the query string to be (for example, replace 'xxx' with 'showprofile' so then someone would type in example.php?do=showprofile to view this template.) Then of course, change TEMPLATE_XXX to your template name, it's that simple! :D


edit by Lynne: If running 3.8.4 or above, see this post to take care of the PHP 5.3.0-related problems - http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showp...postcount=1171

user permissions system as well
how would you go about using that?

also, would it be hard to pass the members username/id into this page? (sorry if thats an easy question)

This is great! I assume the template standard condtionals will work here?

What's the best way to use this on a non-vb page?

dirtymerc 04 Mar 2004 23:27

Installed, works marvelously! Thank YOU SO MUCH!

TheAnt 05 Mar 2004 00:14

SVT. I believe that as long as global is called via the files, the conditionals will work.

I'd suggest to copy the non-vB page content and copy into a template ;)

You don't really have to worry about those, they are already in action ;)
Try it yourself - install this hack and you'll see the user/pass login part at the top :)

Also if guests are not allowed to view your forums, then they can't view these new pages you create, etc. :)

What I'm saying is how can you make test.php (in this case) work outside the vBulletin directory?

Now why doesn't that surprise me? That seems to be the norm around here. ;)

Wow thanks for following me around and saying these types of things as you please ;)

Anyways, what do you mean Zachery? That I copied your tutorial..? I never even knew you released one (to add to that, I never even seen you around here before ;))

For 'tutorials' such as generic as this one, I don't think that there is really any proprietorship for anyone since it can be displayed in many forms; I haven't seen yours but I bet that mine is at least noticeably different from yours.

Then be original. 90% of the hacks you have released for vB3 have been someone else's. I mean, look at your sig. You're working on vBWar for vB3? Have you even checked with Dark_Wizard to see if he minds?

Actually, for your information, I am working with Dark_Wizard on vBWar v3. We are in a partnership for this. Have you even taken a look at the vBWar site yet? ( http://vbwar.dpclan.us/forums/showgroups.php? )

Boofo 05 Mar 2004 02:42

Ok, 89%, then. Maybe you ought to put Helping with vBWar then, It is his hack.

Jagang 05 Mar 2004 02:47

oooh he got you on that one Boofo. ;)
