vB Version: 4.1.3 Rating: (1 vote - 3.00 average) Installs: 10
Released: 06 Aug 2011 Last Update: Never Downloads: 67
Not Supported Template Edits Re-usable Code  

Description:

Credit for the idea goes to Welshy2008 (The edits and idea are closely matched to his Country Flags mod.)

This is my first attempt - any mistakes are mine....and mine alone....so if something is not right....remember we all started somewhere right?

This add on gives you a license plate selection from USA/Canada ONLY. Tested on VB 4.1.3 but should work well for other versions.

New and existing members can choose from a drop down menu in the user settings - edit profile where the license plate will appear in their postbit.


Instuctions:

Firstly Upload the "plates" folder to your forum root like this:

your style/images/buttons/

Example: www.yoursite.com/forum/images/buttons

If you use a custom skin then do this:

www.yoursite.com/forums/images/styles/"yourstyle"/buttons

In your admin control panel please do this:

User Profile Fields -> Add new User Profile -> Profile Field Type -> Single Selection Menu (From the drop down menu) - then enter the following fields. (Take note of the FIELD ID)

ADD New User Profile Field Single Selection Menu:

Title = Your License Plate
Description = Add your license plate to your profile.
Profile Field Category = (Uncategorized)
Options = Copy & Paste the Whole contents of the file attached below (OPTIONS)
Set Default = None
Display Order = You Select this (dependent on how many you already have)
Field Required = yes, at registration and profile updating
Field Editable by User = Yes
Private Field = No
Field Searchable on Members List = No
Show on Members List = Yes

Optional Input:

Allow user to input their own value for this option = No
Max length of allowed user input = 100
Field Length = 25
Regular Expression = Leave this Blank


Then, In your Admin Control Panel (ACP)...

ACP -> Styles & Templates -> Style Manager -> <<>> -> Postbit Templates -> select the template that you use (ie Postbit or Posbit_legacy) – This is for the Postbit_Legacy…

Find:


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

(Custom template I had)

If you cannot find the above code then use this one:

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

Add this underneath - replacing XX with the Field ID you wrote down from above.

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

And that's it - Enjoy!

OK - I would go to your settings - edit profile - Select the license plate you want to use.

Or....

Check where you uploaded the plates folder to. If you right click on the "Users license plate" text you are pointing to - and select properties in IE/FF - you can see the path where the plates folder needs to be.

Are the license plates able to personalized or do they just have a generic plate number on them?

What code edits we have to do to make this specific for certain usergroups? Or that isn't possible since the profile fields, themselves don't have such an option >.>

I can contribute the blank American and Canadian plates if someone can figure out a way to personalize them.

Allot of automotive and motorcycle sites could use this mod with more features.

Just an ideal. I've seen those customizable smileys with signs. Why couldn't the smiley be replaced with the plate? I haven't a clue how to do it myself but Im sure it can be done.

Request for customizable version here.
