Mod: Spoiler (Hidden) Sigs by BOP5
Version: 2.22

Minor bug fix affecting VB 3.x only. VB 4.x no need to upgrade.

Two new features: 1) Ability to hide sigs for specific users and 2) ability to remove signatures from posts completely, not just hide them. Plus 1 minor bug fix.

A new option to always show the signature un-hidden to the logged in user, this way you can hide signatures without the user knowing his specific signature was hidden.

Live Demo: http://www.juot.net/forums/showthread.php?t=41501
(Scroll down to 2nd post to see hidden sig. No registration required. Demo is 3.8 board but works same on 4.x)

This mod has been tested on VB 4.0.8 and 3.8.6 and should be compatible with all versions from 3.5 through 4.x. If you find it incompatible please post here.

This is an installable product version of my “Hidden Sigs” template modification released earlier. If you previously installed this template edit you must uninstall it first by undoing the changes you originally made in your postbit or postbit_legacy template.

Install this product like any other vBulletin modification. Go to the Admin CP -> Manage Products -> Add/Import Product and press “Choose File.” Locate and import the product file.

Once imported you MUST go to the options to enable the mod and setup your usergroups. In vBulletin Options scroll down to Spoiler (Hidden) Sig Options (near the bottom).
Choose Yes to Enable the Mod

You can choose to hide sigs (make them spoilers) by Usergroup ID (primary or secondary) or by minimum post count.

You can customize the HTML used in the spoiler code so if you want to change it or have a different code you prefer to use you can change it easily in the options. This is for advanced users only. This mod will work just fine with the default code.

Please remember to Mark as Installed if you use this. :)

Read the .txt file included in the .zip for full instructions.

.zip file = English Version 2.25
.xml file = Arabic Translation by Dr. OsamA (Thank You!) Version 2.0

i used this code befor and working good

Did you remove the changes from the old template mod?

I made all the same settings you have and used firefox and it's working on my 4.0.8. My license doesn't let me download 4.1 but I'm sure it works the same way.

I don't know what else it could be... did you make changes to the default codes when translating it to Arabic?

Can you send me a link to a thread where it should be working but isn't?

Dr.osamA 06 Dec 2010 03:22

yes sir

i removed all extra codes and old code of same mod

then i tryed it in orignal default style vb 4.1.0

so i will do for you test forum to try and testing it there if you agree

i PM you test forum bro

BirdOPrey5 06 Dec 2010 03:55

I can now confirm this works on 4.1.0 Beta, so I can safely say it works on 4.1 at this point.

Dr.osamA 06 Dec 2010 03:59

You do some great work, nice mod.

BirdOPrey5 06 Dec 2010 14:16

Thanks. :up:

Updated this today with a new option as suggest by kether1 in the Requests forum-

The new option lets you "hide" the fact you are hiding someone's signature- that is to say- to any logged in user it will look like their signature isn't hidden, but for everyone else, it will be hidden.

I personally wouldn't use it but I could see why some admins would want this option.

The new option is called: Hide for User? and the default is "Yes" which means YES, the user's signature MAY be hidden. To enable this new option you actually have to set this option to "No" which means, "NO" the user's signature will NEVER be hidden for them.

I hope you can follow my logic- test it first if you're not sure.

Thanks for the update! Instead of usergroups, could this be edited to use user ids? This would make adding a signature to this mod so much easier IMHO. Regardless, nice work, sir.


BirdOPrey5 26 Mar 2011 01:17

Added your 2 requests- hide sigs completely and use with userids if you want.
