Hey all,

My vBulletin licence has now run dry and so I'll have to wait until I have enough cash to purchase a new one before I continue / start production on new and previous modifications.

But before it run out, I managed to finish this modification which I thought you might find useful.

Easy installation as per usual, just upload the product and install

See screenshots for description, since it says it itself.

I will try my best to give support on the mod.

Thanks and enjoy

- Marky

Modification Information

Modification Name: Forum Affiliates
Version: 1.0
Created By: Mark Spiers (Marky)

What does it do?

It adds a box below the stats at the bottom of your forums (See screenshot) that allows you to add up to 10 different affiliates, and completely customize the box, such as box title and even the affiliates image to blend well into the forum.

Installation

Installation is simple, and should take around a minute (if that).
Just upload the product given, and follow the instruction given for the template edit. Then you can customize the options straight from the vBulletin Options.

Products: 1
Plugins: 2
Template Edits: 1 (FORUMHOME)
Time to Install: Less than 1 Minute

Donations

I create vBulletin modifications for the vBulletin community, and of course I do not get paid to do it. I would be very grateful if you donated to me if you like my modifications. But of course this is optional

Currently due to the additions that swf files need in html, version 1.0 doesn't support swf files for affiliates. BUT - I've edited the product (See attached file) and in the admin control part, where you put the image you must add the swf html equivilent. For example, if you want an image there you must put:
<img border="0" src="image.gif">
For swf:
<object width="xx" height="xx"><param name="movie" value="movie.swf"></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param><embed src="movie.swf" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="xx" height="xx"></embed></object>

Marky, I like this. I have it implemented. Two suggestions if I may.

1) The URL to the image for your affiliate box should be a standard image such as misc/stats.gif or statusicon/forum_link.gif for example. Many forums use different themes and having an image which fits the theme in question would improve the look.

2) There needs to be an option for target="_blank" as many forum admins would prefer to not have users leave their forums.

Do you think these are things you'll consider for an update?
1) How about the option to have either one from the theme folder and a custom one?

2) That's a definate. I'll be going back to school tommorow, but if I don't have too much on, I'll get this done by tommorow

One request for this mod:

Give some instructions on putting the block in other areas. Like near the header.

Make the number of available input boxes for different affiliates configurable. Maybe using AJAX to open up new boxes?
Yes sorry the instructions are rushed I agree. I will update them soon to make them clearer and of course give you different places to stick the affiliates box

And on the AJAX front, unfortunatly I can't do AJAX But I'll definatly consider an alternative way...

Love the hack, thank you!

If I use up all 10 links, how can I add more? I have all ten filled already and need to add more but can't figure out how. I'm actually not using for affiliates, but for board contributors, that's why I need more than 10.

Thanks for any advice!

-Jim
