If you use this modification, please >> Mark As Installed, Nominate for MOTM, or Support Developer <<, thank you


What is this!?
vBISpy is an AJAX real-time feed of new posts/threads for your vBulletin 4.0 forum.

Please note that this is currently in Beta. The style is not perfect, but the mod should be fully functionial.


Current Version
2.0.4 - You can find the 3.6.x version, here.


Features flagged for future version(s):
  • looking for suggestions


Will this work on x.x.x ??
Unless otherwise stated, this will work on all 4.0.x versions. This will not work on 3.x.


Sounds cool. How do I install?
  1. Extract the zip, you should have the following directories/files:


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

  2. Upload: (in the below instructions 'yourforum' would be where you have vBulletin installed)
    • vaispy.php to /yourforum/vaispy.php
    • /clientscript/*.js to /yourforum/clientscript/*.js
    • /images/misc/*.gif to /yourforum/images/misc/*.gif


Upgrading
Unless noted otherwise, just upload and overwrite 'vaispy.php'.


Customization
Virtually all the code to customize the page is in the vaispy.php script; there are no plugins, no templates and no phrases. You do not need to do anything further; this should work right out of the box.

If you'd like to block certain usergroups from viewing vBISpy; or certain forums from being displayed - edit vaispy.php

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

In your browser, open the URL:

http://www.yourforum.com/forum/vaispy.php

You can see examples of this at:
  • Anyone wanting to list here as an example?


Note: Neither I nor MPDev claim ownership of this code except for the file vaispy.php - the rest of the files were using 'freely distributable' (although modified to suit vBISpy) sources. As such, you may use these files as you wish, but please do not remove the copyrights.

I have problems with this mod. Sometimes it freezes when loading threads and other times it works perfectly fine. This isn't just a problem on my end as all the moderators (10 of us) experience the same exact issue time and time again. Is there a fix for this?

This is true, I had to change all the file names, but it didn't take that long to do
Well worth it as this mod works right out of the box and never stops working unlike another mod which is similar

New install

Hello, new to the board and new to vBulletin.

I have the most recent version of vBulletin and when I install this mod it works except I get the red X where the statusicons should be. I have comment out the event and the code that calls the img. It only gets rid of the red x's on the last 15 post (it appears). I wold like to do away with all the statusicons

Ideas?

Rob

or even making them work would be better than red x's. I tried renaming all the "thread_dot_* files too .gif's from .png's but still no images...

What you mean with this question?

You can add link to it to any template, forumhome included. Or if you want it inside template, use iframe html code. I think that this should work.

But, you have others mods that could do similar things. Depends what you really want.

This is a brilliant mod that's been working really well on our forum. Recently, however, there have been periods where iSpy doesn't work so well - sometimes it freezes or only shows old posts. Does anyone have any idea why this happens?
