Version 2.2.0

The new Activity Stream for VB 4.2.0 is very nice but it feels like it is missing something- and what it is missing is a sidebar. Ideally at some point VB will release a custom sidebar built just for the Activity Stream but until then this quick mod will let you use the built in forum sidebar on the Activity Stream.

As of version 2.0 besides just working on the Activity Stream the mod can now add a sidebar to ANY vBulletin page including forums, threads, groups, albums, who's online, forum leaders, and more. In fact you can easily add the sidebar even to custom pages from custom mods.

New Features
  • Now works on ANY vBulletin Page (except blogs which have their own sidebar)
  • Option to align sidebar with page content or top of page
  • Option to Disable Sidebar Collapse Option (By Usergroup in 2.1.0)
  • Collapsed sidebar state now "remembered" on different pages
  • Option to enable Sidebar by Usergroup
  • Option to disable Sidebar by Forum (if enabled for forums/threads)
  • Option to disable Sidebar in specific styles
  • Options to disable sidebars if mobile devices detected*

NOTE: To enable mobile device detection options you must install the Mobile Browser Detector mod.

Live Demo: Qapla.com Activity Stream

You can enable or disable the Sidebar Anywhere independently of the forum sidebar but they will both display the same content (blocks.)

NEW - If you need to have different blocks on different pages check out this add-on.

You must have at least 1 block setup and active for the sidebar to show.

Unlike most of my other mods this mod is enabled by default upon installation. Be default it is setup to show only on the Activity Stream and register.php pages.

I am aware there is already a mod out there "Everywhere Sidebar" by another coder. This is completely different code and I made this because my "Staff Online Sideblock" mod did not work on Sidebar Everywhere but it does work on this mod.

This mod requires at least VB 4.2.0 to work on the Activity Stream but should work on older VB 4.x.x versions on other pages.

The old version Zip file Sidebar for Activity Stream by BOP5 v11.zip works only on the Activity Stream.

PLEASE READ THE INSTRUCTIONS INCLUDED WITH THIS MOD- THEY ANSWER MOST OF THE QUESTIONS ABOUT HOW TO USE IT.

A quick request: Would it be possible to show / hide the sidebar collapse button based on group membership?

At this point based on BOP5's last post I'd suggest putting this suggestion vBulletin's JIRA.

DOH!!!! There is a phrase in my home country that, loosely translated, means "There ain't no pills for stupidity"

Yes, I had templates and styles confused

For fear of asking another silly question, but why would my sidebar be on the right of the CMS section, but on the left in the activity and forum modules?

Looks to me like a vBulletin issue and not specifically one of this mod, but not sure..

EDIT, ok I understand the CMS doesn't use the LHS/RHS sidebar configuration at all and this is rather embedded in the grid structure... more work for me to do

After further investigation it seems setting the width via the stylevar forum_sidebar_width does indeed work to re-size the sidebar width on all pages.

If that is not working for you please link me to an example page.

This would be a great addition.

I currently use the other coder's mod and so would be interested to see if yours provides any performance increase etc

Updated to version 2.1.0

Added option to prevent collapsing of sidebar by usergroup (including FORUMHOME sidebar)

If upgrading be sure to go back to the settings to set which usergroups have permission to collapse the sidebar. By default all the built in usergroups (besides banned) have permission.
