Fix-it: Template Edition
Mod Version: 2.00, by GeekyDesigns (Coder) GeekyDesigns is offline
Developer Last Online: May 2012 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 3.8.x Rating: (14 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 122
Released: 15 Aug 2009 Last Update: 03 Apr 2012 Downloads: 895
Not Supported Additional Files  

A common method of defacing vBulletin sites is to edit the parsed template html directly via the database. It makes it harder for administrators to find the issue, and can be a pain in the ass to cleanup if you're not familiar with working with the database.

This tool will make it easier to clean your defaced site.

What it does:
Checks all of the templates in the database:
- Makes a new compiled version from the uncompiled template.
- Compares the current compiled template to the new compiled template
- If they differ, it updates the template, then rebuilds all of the styles.

How do you use it?
- Upload to your admincp, modcp, install, or root forums folder
- Browse to it
- Let it run
- Delete tool_recompiler.php after you are done using it.

This tool now works on vB3 and vB4.

Installed and thank you. I navigated to it and it ran all my styles. Now is it automatic from now on, or do I run it every now and then or if I see a problem on forum?

You run it when you see that there's a problem. It's not a preventative measure, just a tool to use to help get your forums back under control.

Ok this seems brilliant... but a little help for us novices.

Just ran this:

And results back are:


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

Does that mean there were issues ? in the above files?

Are they fixed ? have they been repaired... what was the issue ??

It means that there was a difference between the unparsed version of the template and the parsed version of the template and those templates have been re-compiled from the unparsed version.

What the exact differences were is not something that is checked. This isn't a script to test for the errors, it's a simple script to fix them.

If I edit one template for example "header" and run "tool_reparse.php", witch template will be rebuild ?

Original template or my template edited just before the defaced ?

No, it should match both database values and be ignored.

Nice.

I ran this and it showed.
Updating style information for each style

(Default Style ... (Templates) (StyleVars) (Replacement Variables) (CSS) (Controls) Done.)

Does that mean there were no errors?
