3nd Party Addon

For reCaptcha Human Verification, I'm using kh99 reCAPTCHA ver.2. Just now I seen that kh99 has mark it as re-usable code, so I can include it on my package. Currently is not including, you must download and install it. But if you're using PHP 7 you must edit the file uploads/includes/class_humanverify_new_recaptcha.php

Change lines 12-14

What it works so far
  1. Forum list
  2. Forum display
  3. Show Thread
  4. Modal Member Profile (not completed yet)
  5. Sidebar in slide panel
  6. Search is slide panel (with link to Advanced Search)
  7. User menu in slide panel (not completed yet with custom user menu)
  8. Navbar in slide panel (not completed yet as it does not shows extra menu). Currently it shows all menu options in a long list but I'll modify it to menu-> submenu-> subsubmenu
  9. Login / Register / Password Reset in modal
That's for the moment. Please be kind and don't stress me. It's a long Project, not just a Responsive style, but I believe that it will be ready by the end of August, maybe much earlier.

Ver. 0.2.0 Alpha


New Features
  1. Completed User Profile - Modal Window
  2. Completed User Profile - Page
  3. Added User Status
  4. Redesigned What's Going On
  5. Completed Show Thread by redesigning Thread Replies
  6. Added Thread icon and Thread Prefix in Forum display
  7. Modified (a bit only), New Thread page and removed unnecessary data from Asset Manager. Still not the best as I'm working on this, but at least works on mobiles.
  8. Modified 2 core files:
    1. includes/functions_forumlist.php to change poll icon with FA icon
    2. includes/functions_editor.php to remove the emoticons block on the right side of editor as it was getting wide space in mobile view.
For better support of Avatars and Cover Image (Profile Header) you must edit each Usergroup and set:
  1. Disable Animation photos for Avatar and User Photo.
  2. Set Profile Picture Maximum Width (pixels) to 1200px
  3. Set Profile Picture Maximum Height (pixels) to 340px
  4. Set Profile Picture Maximum File-Size to 1024000 (sure you can set different filesize).
  5. Set Custom Avatar Maximum Width (pixels) to 150px
  6. Set Custom Avatar Maximum Height (pixels) to 150px
  7. Set Custom Avatar Maximum File-Size to 200000 (or anything else you prefer).
To Upgrade
  1. Download and Unzip the file ProjectvB4-v0.2A.zip
  2. Upload all files from upload/ folder, overwriting the old ones
  3. Import product-projectvb4.xml selecting Allow Overwrite -> Yes
  4. Import Style XML File projectvb4-style-17Jul.xml selecting to Merge Into Style ProjectvB4
Editing core files


There are 2 small modifications in vB core files, but as the Licenses prohibits distribution of them, you must do these changes on your own.


1.- If you want to hide the emoticons from the right side of the editor to earn some space in mobile view (emoticon will still be available from the button menu), you must edit the file includes/functions_editor.php. Open it with a text editor (not Word and similar), and change line 551

Remarks:
  1. I appreciate your patience but don't forget that its a huge product. I don't focus to release just a responsive theme but to redesign it the most that my knowledge permits me to do.
  2. Next release next Friday
I wish you a nice weekend
Chris

Only if you want to use it just for forum.

Give a couple of hours to test it Have stressed myself to finish the extra features today, and I'm feeling so weak now. Most probably i'll check it tomorrow morning (in around 14h from now).

Just finished "everything" ... Well, to be more specific, that "everything" at this time has a general meaning.

This project started with focus to be a responsive vB4 style. This done. Also my intention was to give a fresh style (simple style), with focus to "Mobile first". I believe that this also done. Third plan was to release some extra features like:
  • Cookies Policy
  • GDPR compliance features
  • Modal Profile with basic member info
  • Modal Login/Register
  • A simple Mailinglist
  • A simple Donation form with IPN support
  • HTML system emails
  • A powerful Footer section
  • Memberlist replacement
All of them added and at least in my test, seem to work fine. The problem is that some of these features were plan for the PRO version. I'll think how to resolve this.

What is still missing:
  • RTL currently is partial supported
  • Forum only version works. So the Suite version is still unsupported
  • Even if all pages are responsive, some of them are still with the old interface. Responsive but not updated. Maybe I missed a couple of pages, but is so hard to check all of them. This can be done only in real use. What I care most, is to have all member links in all pages, opening the modal window. For sure in the most important pages this works, but needs very deep check to find what left out.

First of all what vB version do you use? Forum only or Suite. Even if I've installed and testing it in both versions, should be some template messing in Suite which is not ready yet. But for sure without errors. Never got errors.


So most probably a plugin causes it. Can you disabled your plugins and try again?

I dont know if the php version 7.1 has anything to do with it.

No, PHP 7.1 is fine as long as vBulletin works fine (without any issue).

Don't know if I understood well, but what you turn off? I meant to turn off all other plugins and let only the Plugin Project vB4 active.
