This does what it says on the tin, it isnt for everyone. So dont go whining and whinging. But if you feel a need for this, then enjoy.

Utilising: Jquery Ajax Css and a bit of JiggeryPokery we bring you:

NAG the BUGGERS NagScreen. This mod will NAG your guests to register !!!

Simple as really.
Easy to install.

2 folders to upload
3 templates to add some code to - copy the code between the [code] this code here [/code] tags.

Please do not upload the actual code tags themselves ok ;)

Included are the PSD's I used in production of this for our forum. Please feel free to use / change and bastardize. Do not ask me to do it for you, I am far too busy.

This is a free hack, and I for one think VB should instigate a system of you download ---- you click install system. If you dont click install you should PAY !

Not a lot to ask is it ! Sheesh cmon, ONE FINGER CLICK ! ;)

Anyhoo....

lol nice but damn annoying .................... i think maybe that sometimes guests who are already registered but do not want to login for some reason, wether this be time or some other constraints it may well deter them from returning. sorry this is not ajibe as it is quite a fun element to have.

this can be useful.. i got two questions for you...

Can we change the time before it pops up.. I do not want this to show at first 3 second when u arrive at the page...

Is it possible, if you close it once, it doesn't show up again?

princeedward 23 Mar 2010 19:03

Not sure it would, be interesting to note what effect it does have.
You can limit it to forumhome or forumdisplay or whatever.

In the footer code: find


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

change to:

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

This will now only display OnClick

Now look in the footer of your homepage, you will see Register right at the bottom. Clicking this link, will launch the ModalBox
Meaning you could attribute this ModalBox to any function on the site you would like.
From auto playing a video, swf, instruction file. Tutorial etc.
As for 3 seconds lol... hmm not sure on a delay function

I would be more interested in a Cookie function, to display this mod ONCE per browser session on page load.

:::: UPDATE Missed Footer code from Original :::::

Have just updated Package, please re-download and make changes to footer code only.

No offence, but if I had encountered this on any site, I would leave without giving it a second thought.

Also, non-posting members are good for nothing. People that wish to be an active part of your site will register anyway.

TimberFloorAu 23 Mar 2010 20:56

Arch.

The objective of this is to show people how to adopt a Modal , jquery powered nag screen.
With upto 600 guests on our site on most days, we are always looking to further our membership.

Had you read the first line of the mod:

Quote:

This does what it says on the tin, it isnt for everyone. So dont go whining and whinging. But if you feel a need for this, then enjoy.
Plus you havent downloaded it ?? Bizarre mate, perhaps you could have looked at the code, which we have provided everything.. and customised it to suit a particular need.

This mod, can be triggered onclick or onload

Meaning you could add a html navbar link, which is usergroup conditional or not.
You could then optimise the code, to display anything AJAXified, including Login forms, feedback forms, comment systems... tutorial videos..

We dont use this code on our site, but the concept is to give people the tools and inspiration to "have a go" and see that this is a modification which you could use for many other purposes.

In its Onclick State, a user doesnt get nagged ( I have posted that code above )
So a guest would not see this, until they clicked a button.

The code within ajax.html can easily be swapped out for any other code, specifically see the examples I posted within the link on post 7

I am sure you could find a use for this, just need to think outside the box.

I did not read the first line, sorry. My post was not an attack on your mod, but I felt the need to share that I'm not a fan of popups, or anything else that intrude on my web browsing. I'm sure it's a brilliant mod for those who want this.

Like I said above, I'm sure the coding is excellent and the mod is working fine, I just don't have the need to download something I won't use. If you were offended by my post, I apologize. It was not my intention.

You will be the first to know when/if I do :)

TimberFloorAu 23 Mar 2010 22:01

cannot reply: bad request :(
Video Version
cannot post the code on here so have added to our forum: http://www.australiabound.org/forum/...tml#post179219

TimberFloorAu 24 Mar 2010 02:37

See if this works now.

I have coded this now ( slightly differently on our forum ) But feel free to use this code change for adding dynamic videos using Modal.

This is a follow up to our Nag Screen.

Here is another example: FOR FRESH USERS ( you still need to upload content and colorbox folders !!!!! )

This MODALS a youtube link video dynamically on your Page

Open forumhome template

add this above </head>

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

Add this at bottom of footer

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

Click Vbulletin tuorial link bottom left

This link could be anywhere , navbar etc etc
Could be coded to add ajax inline , rather than iframe.

Whatever, but you cannot knock the fact this makes good sense, and looks wicked.

Anyhoo.. I cant spark peoples imaginations, I suppose they need to do that themselves.

TimberFloorAu 24 Mar 2010 08:39
