vB Version: 4.2.0 Rating: (11 votes - 4.91 average) Installs: 59
Released: 27 Jul 2012 Last Update: 10 Aug 2012 Downloads: 288
Not Supported  

THIS ADD-ON IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE AND IS NOT SUPPORTED

* General Information *
------------------------------
This add-on was originally coded by Kirk Y on vbulletin.org for vB version 3.6.8.
With permission, I have adapted it to work with vB versions 4.1.x and 4.2.0.

What does this do?
---------------------
This modification adds the ability to give specific forums "warning messages" that are shown to the user before he/she enters the forum.

For example: the user enters a forum that is intended for adults; the user enters this forum, is presented with the warning message explaining as much, and he/she can then choose to proceed into the forum or return back to where they were.

Features
-----------
  • Customizable message per forum
  • Control background color of pop-up
  • Control opacity of background layer behind pop-up
  • Cookie options allow you to enable users to permanently disable messages or show them once per session
  • Exclude specific Usergroups from having to view pop-ups
  • Control dimensions (height and width)
  • Popup is automatically centered in the browser window.


* INSTALLATION *
---------------------
1) Upload the entire 'images' folder to your forum's root.
(If your forum's location is http://www.example.com/forums/, the root is /forums/)
If your style has a 'misc' folder, also upload the 2 gif files in the images/misc folder to your style's 'misc' folder.

2) Import the product XML file (product-forumsplash.xml) into the Product Manager in AdminCP.

3) Go to ACP->Settings->Options->Splash Warning Message Settings. Turn on the system and set the options.

4) Go to ACP->Forums & Moderators->Forum Manager and set the message you want displayed in each forum you want the message displayed in.

Known working with vB 4.1.11, 4.1.12 and 4.2.0.

I have this setting and I saw the message once. I selected "go foward" and even if I close the browser (FireFox) and then restart it, re-entering the site and the testing forum, I still don't see the message again?

Am I missing something?

Edit: It appears that the problem is unique to FireFox 14.0.1. I loaded Safari 6.0, entered forum, saw warning, closed Safari browser and re-started it, then re-entered forum again. Warning message appeared agan as designed, so the issue is only on FireFox, at least on my system.

BTW, nice mod.. very clean and professional, plus has some good potential use on our site.

I can't duplicate the problem you're having with a single instance of Firefox 14.0.1 running. Every time I close the browser, the splash page comes back when I re-open the browser.

The only way I can duplicate it is if I have multiple instances of Firefox running. You have to close all firefox windows for sessions to clear.

I'm running Mac OSX Mountain Lion, which may be a factor?

If I delete the cookie named "splashpagecookie50_s", then the page appears again once.

Does that help?

Doug

The process of killing the session comes from the browser/operating system not the mod, so yes it could be the problem.

Unfortunately, there's no way to re-write the session cookie when the browser closes. Again, that's a function of the browser/operating system. And if it's not deleting the session cookie when the browser is closed, then it's a bug in the browser/operating system.

I agree ....

Don't worry about it. It's an anomaly I thought you should be aware of in case others post a similar complaint ..

PayPal for this mod and all the others of yours that I've installed recently, on the way ..

Doug

At this point, that can't be done with this mod.

Is there any way to get this to show up on the cms/home page? I'd like visitors to see this message when landing on www.xxxxxxxxxxxxx.com only. Working great. Tried to put it into vbcms comments but not showing up on cms
