vB Version: 3.7.0 Rating: (16 votes - 4.75 average) Installs: 247
Released: 10 May 2008 Last Update: 20 May 2008 Downloads: 1046
Not Supported Uses Plugins Auto-Template Re-usable Code Translations  

Credit goes to EnIgMa1234 for the original mod. Although he said no credit is needed, I still feel obliged to point it out :P

What does it do?

This is quite a simple mod I use which automatically changes the standard "Welcome, <Username>" phrase to "Good Morning/Afernoon/Evening, <Username>" depending on the time of day.

Installation/Upgrade Instructions

1. Import the Product. (Allow overwrite if upgrading)
2. You're done!






And finally, this is my first attempt at a release here, so go easy on me! I welcome any constructive criticizm of suggestions on how to improve this

Version History

0.05 - Initial Release
0.06 - Now compatible with Paul M's Display Unread Posts and New Reputation Comments mod.
0.08 - Updated to work with iBProArcade. Also no longer uses Javascript so will work on browsers with it disabled.
1.00 - Updated, now replaces the Phrase instead of template, allowing auto-replace to function even if the Welcome message is in a template other than navbar (Eg, header)

Known Issues

Because it goes off Server Time, this mod might not always be accurate for people in different time zones from the server. Unfortunately this isn't something I can fix.

You can manually insert this by finding the phrase $vbphrase[welcome_x_link_y] and replacing it with $vbphrase[welcome_timegreeting]. This might however cause Mods like Paul M's Display Unread Posts and New Reputation Comments mod and others similar to it to stop working, reason below.

Not sure, but I believe that mod works by finding the phrase $vbphrase[welcome_x_link_y] - If you manually edited it in a similar way to described above that may be why, If not I'm not sure as the method my mod does to try and avoid this is to set $vbphrase[welcome_x_link_y] as $vbphrase[welcome_timegreeting]. It worked fine for me and I tested it on styles with the Welcome message in both navbar and header.

It may be worth trying the same solution as was posted on Boofo's Ultimate Navbar:
http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showp...0&postcount=33
Except you'd be replacing it with $vbphrase[welcome_timegreeting] instead of $vbphrase['ung_greeting']

As above, when I tested it it worked fine on skins with it in the navbar and header template. If you're not running 3.7 or some of your skins are out of date it probably won't work either, as prior to 3.7 the Welcome phrase was [welcome_x] not [welcome_x_link_y]. If that's the case you could probably make it work with a manual template edit like the one described above, except replace [welcome_x] instead.

This is interfering with the "Linear - Newest First" option in "Edit Options". When this modfication is in effect, and you have Newest First selected, then it goes to the last post. Any chance for a fix?

Erm, I'm not entirely sure what you mean as I don't think I've ever used that display mode myself. What behaviour would you expect? As I see no differece on my test forum with the mod enabled or disabled.

Well depending on how you have set this member bar up It could work. Try including the phrase "$vbphrase[welcome_x_link_y]" as this mod essentially just replaces that phrase with the Good Morning/Afternoon etc one.

Smile how do I get my greetings into vbcms ?

Hi,

I installed this. In Standard mode it will work fine. But ..

In my mode there is no welcome box in my navbar. My welcome box is in the vbcms-module called "portalloginbox".

How can I get this greetings right there ? In vb-germany I could not get an answer.

Heiko
