Postbit Toggle in User CP

This hack was originally inspired by an old hack providing similar functions created by Darth Cow. It creates a toggle option in the User CP to determine which postbit a user wishes to use. It also includes optional instructions to include the information concerning this field in the postbits.

Template Edits: 2, optional
Files to Upload: 0
Plugins to Import: 1
Other: 3 (Add one Profile Field and change one vB Options setting; OPTIONAL - create a phrase)


Installation Instructions -

View the readme.txt in the ZIP archive.


Support -

I will offer support in this thread.

Update 1: Hack moved out of beta stage. All appears to be working well.

This hack gives users the option, and then (this is the optional bit) allows this information to be part of the postbit (ie. Postbit: Profile on Top).

It works very good! I was wondering how to make the "Profile on Top" the default view?

One problem here: Me too but on top of it I can't seem to revert to the Profile on top.. I don't get it.

I made all modifications asked and when I go to my control panel on "Modify Options" I see that the other options are there. If I choose to see my postbit at left, it works when I go to check a message, my profile info is at left. But if I select it in order to see my postbit on top, it still shows at left, like it does not want to change back on top my message's profile.

What could be wrong?

Hi, it works for me, but no other members..
isnt it strange?

Cybershaolin 21 Jan 2007 09:30

Any clue to my problem?

Cybershaolin 25 Jan 2007 05:19

I got it working but with some problems and bugs:

1- The template postbit_legacy is not included in the cache.

2- Whenever a member decide to change his postbit choice's options, it seems to revert to the postbit_legacy all time even if my own choice is on postbit. (on top).

To correct this, I have to go in the vbulltin options under Style and language and save the settings without changing anything!

Really weird. Any idea?

It says in the first thread that this hack is supported, well, last online in September... is it really the case?

Sounds like there may be a setup issue. Check the following plugin

legacypostbit toggle

Make sure the Field is Correct and the Option it's pointing too.

Cybershaolin 25 Jan 2007 16:16

This is what I have in the plugin: (the order option is set to 5 for field in my peronalized fields too).

Also, in my vBulletin Options > Style and Template Settings, 'Use Legacy (Vertical) Postbit Template' is set to No.
