GTUserCP Interface + UserCP navbar menu

NEW 1.1.1 VERSION (download GTUSERCP_111-2.zip)

The 1.1.0+ version now replaces the USERCP_SHELL template. No edits are necessary. However, manual edits are required if you wish to use the UserCP Menu like we have here on vbulletin.org.

If upgrading from a previous version you can revert the "USERCP_SHELL", "SUBSCRIBE", and "usercp_nav_folderbit" template.


Custom modification brought to you by Joe Velez (aka Princeton vbulletin.org Admin).


This modification is a combination of the new vb.org USERCP and the UserCP dropdown menu.

Why would you want to install these features?
  1. Decrease Server Resources
  2. Increase Usability
Support modification by "Installing", "nominating for MOTM", and/or donating.

How does this help with server resources?

Typically if you want to edit or view your personal information you would click the UserCP navbar link (wait for the page to load) and click the option you wish to view.

Did you know?

You just hit the server with 11 Queries + HTTP Request + Bandwidth just for visiting the UserCP default page. What's worst is that this is not even the page that you want to view. Yep, you guessed it there goes an additional hit to the server.

Add this modification to bypass the UserCP default page.
The savings are HUGE especially on a big-board site.

How does this help with usability?
  1. Private Messages are the most frequently used user option.
    • Moving this to the top will give members quicker access.
    • Displaying custom folders will also bypass some pages (clicks) and therefore decreases server resources.
  2. Collapsing/Expanding some of the options will provide members quicker access to what is important to them.
This modification has been reported working on earlier vb versions 3.5.4+.

Instructions:
  1. Install product via Product Manager.
  2. If you want to add UserCP Menu read the README file. This has to be done manually.
  3. Show your support click "Mark As Installed", nominate for MOTM, rate this modification, and/or donate.
History:

v 1.1.1-2 : Missing phrase
v 1.1.1 : Added SUBSCRIBE template replacements
v 1.1.0 : New 3.6.8 version released (w/ template hook)v 1.0.2 : Added missing template changes
v 1.0.1 : Added missing template changes

You're a star! Thanks for this - makes much more sense.

Just a note I think there may be a slight typo in your instructions it says:

REPLACE usercp_folderbit template content with:

Is that meant to be:


REPLACE usercp_nav_folderbit template content with:

?

You rock!! Thanks for this


That was strange i was just trying to click to download that file and it was saying

No Mod specified. If you followed a valid link, please notify the administrator

I guess this was because i loaded the page then by the time i had clicked to download it you had uploaded a newer version of the hack :p




Also maybe it would be a much better idea to make the hack so i dont need to upload the images to all the styles i have

Think I've spotted another one (sorry!). You don't document the change to the UserCP navbar option so the drop down menu won't appear.


I think it needs changing to something like:

<if condition="$show['member']">
<td id ="usercpoptions" class="vbmenu_control_navbar"><a href="usercp.php$session[sessionurl_q]">$vbphrase[user_cp]</a><script type="text/javascript"> vbmenu_register("usercpoptions"); </script></td>
</if>

mine is not working, I opened up USERCP_SHELL_REPLACE.txt, copied everything there, went into Admin CP opened up USERCP_SHELL and deleted everything there and pasted everything from USERCP_SHELL_REPLACE.txt, everything in, GTUserCP_README.txt, was already made by me, I saw this same drop down menu on first day of new style here at vBORG and made myself even a better one, but here are my results, :( :( :( :( :(

Have you read the other template changes
