Not Supported Uses Plugins Template Edits Additional Files  

Introduction:

I found Zero Tolerence's Welcome Panel's template dull, and it had a lot of mistakes on my computer, and it shows up on a lot of the sites I visit that have it. It annoyed me so I threw together my own Template for his hack. This is it. I've called it Welcome Panel Template Rewrite, as that's exactly what it is. It's about to go into it's next version, so be on the look out.

This hack will not work if...

You must install this hack (Zero Tolerence's Welcome Panel) before my hack will work. It requires the plugins. Just don't follow the installation instructions for the template.

Installing:

All you have to do to install this hack is upload the .xml file that's attached to your Products Manager and it'll install the template and phrases.

Note: Be sure to chose the correct .xml! It is reccomended that you chose either v1.3 (location within zip: back releases/v1.x) or v2.1.1's XML file (main folder)!

v1.3 Features:
  • Displays New Posts
  • Avatar Display
  • Forum Stats
  • Fully Phrased
  • New Posts Link
  • Edit Profile Link
  • Edit Avatar Link
  • Most Active in.
  • Percent of Forum Posts
  • Posts Per Day
  • Number of Posts
  • Forum Stats
  • Collapsable

More Features will be added in v2.0. You can gain IMAGE links by PMing me.

  • Displays the number of new posts.
  • It displays the user's avatar & links to the edit avatar page.
  • Displays your forum stats:
    • Posts
    • Threads

  • Link to Mark Forums Read. (uses vB default phrase so if you change it to something else the welcome panel also changes)
  • Link to the announcement forum.
  • The colors now alternate correctly on your welcome panel.

I like the link, useful for when i mkae changes to the profiles i can get to mine to see if it works right. Thats just in my opinion.
I am looking at adding in a few other things to it, but i might have to look at the stats area as it will get to big otherwise.

IMPLEMENTED AND COMPLETE. Now, I'm just working on a file to add phrases. That might take a while.

I have clicked on the "Install" link, and it shows as installed, but how do I create the welcome panel under the forumhome template? I really would like to have this on my board.

to add to my last post: I just did the 3.5.1 upgrade. I have moved the "What's Going On" box to the top of the page. Can I replace the userinfo table with the code above?
