[you] Replacement
Mod Version: 1.0.1, by Boofo (R.I.P.) Boofo is offline

This thread is in the Modification Graveyard.
vB Version: 3.7.x Rating: (11 votes - 4.91 average) Installs: 137
Released: 30 Jan 2008 Last Update: 30 Jan 2008 Downloads: 420
Not Supported Uses Plugins  

Here it is! The [you] hack ported over to vB 3.7 beta 4.

I have ported this over to vBulletin 3.7 beta 4, but it should work on all 3.7 versions. It now works board-wide (posts and thread titles), in the archive, and also in the quick post in the profile. If there are any areas you find that this doesn't work in, let me know and I will add the code for that area.

Thanks goes out to KirbyDE for making the first version for 3.5 possible. Without him, I'd STILL be trying to figure out the best way to do this for vB 3.5. Thanks, buddy!

Description:
This will replace the [you] variable (board-wide) with the viewing user's username.

Installation:
1 product xml
(No file edits)

Upload the product xml and you're all set!

Enjoy!

I use it for welcome posts all the time. Makes them more personalized.

Actually, that is the main reason I wrote this hack. It just started getting used as a jokes hack somewhere along the line.

I use it for a photo voting contest: "[you], have you voted yet?" The number of votes almost doubled in the past week.

That is a smart idea. Using it like that doesn't bring a lot of attention to it so it doesn't get overused by everyone. That is basically what is was designed for.

This doesn't work if you press the preview button before posting. Your post ends up with the [tag] being changed for your name, then you press post and it looks like it's working but everyone else sees your name not theirs.

I have found a major problem with this... it works in usernames...

So now, I have a member (now banned) who's a mirror of whoever views their posts, profile, PMs, etc.

They also always display last on who's online, and just look weird. Seriously, he has the username of the viewer. I think you need to make the next version not parse usernames, and anyone using this needs to ban the [you] code in usernames...

First, you need to click install. Second, I have no idea what you just said. Please explain it further.

Just warning that someone found out you can use it in usernames and it'll parse as the viewers username. For example, if someone used it here, you'd see their name as Boofo, while everyone else would see their name as their own name.

Easy fix - just disallow [you] for usernames. >_>

I am trying to use it in SmnLikQuick v2.0 - Advanced Announcements Block mod, in order to welcome my members, but it doesn't seems to work and only shows 'Welcome, [you]!' (It does supports BB tags).

Any chance for a solution?

The [you] is not an actual bbcode tag. It is a replacement variable. 2 different things. Apparently, that hack uses a different hook than I have set for the replacements.

I see, thanks for the info. It's a shame, could be a great solution for me.
