(This hack is for vb version 4.x and above. For vb 3.x, version see my profile for relevant threads.)

"WebTemplates" is a vBulletin integrated Content Management System which allows you to create vb integrated "HTML" pages in your vb admin cp very easily. The pages can inherit your vbulletin skin/style, can recognize logged-in user, can be applied permissions per user or usergroup basis, can keep visit logs, hit counts and do many more.


WEBTEMPLATES 4.x BASIC FEATURES:
  • Very Easy Installation : Webtemplates can be installed to your board without modifying even a single vbulletin file. It is coded as a vb product and can be imported very easily.
  • Apply VB Permissions: You can ban any webtemplate to any user or usergroups easily. So for instance you can design a webtemplate which only members can see while guests can not, or only user A can not see etc.
  • Page Counter : Each webtemplate has a built-in counter and you can display page count to your visitors and you can edit it or turn it OFF/ON per webtemplate basis.
  • Visitor Logging&Tracking : You can track certain users' (by usergroup or userid) webtemplate visits to see who visited a webtemplate and when. This is configurable per webtemplate basis.
  • Site Contributers (Editor) Support : You can grant editing permissions for certain users or usergroups for your webtemplates individually and they will be able to update these webtemplates using their own editor interface. vB's WYSIWYG editor is supported in Editor interface.
  • Page Browsers & Who is Online Display: Webtemplates can display who is browsing that webtemplate while visitor is reading them (like default forum browse display of vbulletin). Webtemplate visits can also be monitored in who is online page.
  • Header/Footer Inclusion : Webtemplates can automatically use headers/footers (your default vb header/footer or custom ones)
  • Help Documents : The script comes with an extensive help document.
  • Admin Panel in Webtemplates : Your webtemplates can include an "admin panel" displayed to only admins and by using them you can access many details and stats of your page while you are browsing them.
  • SEO friendly URLs: You can make webtemplate URLs seo friendly in vb settings (Requires apache server).
  • XML Import/Export : XML Import/Export feature allows you to backup your webtemplates and use other hack users webtemplates in your board.
ADVANCED FEATURES FOR ADVANCED USERS:
  • Webquery Feature : With advanced "webquery" feature you can create dynamic webtemplates which include database query results. For instance you can easily add "last 10 threads forum X", "most active users list" etc. to your webtemplates with default webqueries that comes with installation or you can create your custom webqueries with basic SQL knowledge.
  • Multi Parsing : Webtemplates can parse PHP or HTML or TEXT (=smilie/img tags/bbcode parsing like vb posts). This means you can design a page just like vb posts (TEXT parsing), standart HTML (HTML parsing) or even in PHP (PHP parsing).
  • PHPINCLUDE per webtemplate : Every webtemplate has its own "phpinclude" field which you can run PHP codes before loading the Webtemplate
  • Theme Support : Webtemplates support "themes" which are parent webtemplates which include child webtemplates in them. For instance if you have 20 similiar pages which uses the same visual look, you can make a single theme for all of them, then just insert their content into this theme. If you change theme later, all 20 pages' visual will change automatically.
  • Conditionals : Webtemplates supports VB3 template conditionals so you can design webtemplates which change their display under different conditions.
  • Default variables : You can use/display certain variables in your webtemplates like username of the visitor, visitor email address, last visit time, page creation time, page last edit time, Last visitor name, last visit time etc.
Sample WebTemplates from Sites using this hack:
(Most are from 3.x versions but WebTemplate look and feel didn't change much so all will give you the idea.)

(Actually this hack is one of the most popular vb hacks so it is used by hundreds -if not thousands- of vbulletin sites and you can easily find them if you go to google and search "Logician's WebTemplates" WITH quotation marks)

If you use the hack, clicking here will make sure you'll know about updates&bug fixes. It will also help me understand how many people is using the hack so please click the install button if you use it. Thank you..

From FAQ 13: Vbulletin already has a CMS now , why would I need this hack?

If you have CMS license, you might not need Webtemplates. On the other hand, CMS license is paid, webtemplates is free and many forum owners don't have CMS licenses.

Also please note that vb has CMS since 2010. Webtemplates was first released for vb2.x in 2002 and it was around in vb3.x, 3.5.x and above for thousands of vbulletin users who have developed their sites around webtemplates CMS. So regardless of new vb CMS owners might or might not need it, Webtemplates 4.x is still realased and supported as a courtesy to its old users and fans. I personally prefer and use Webtemplates over vb CMS and this hack lives for people who agrees with me.
Version Updates:
12.October.2013 - > Version 4.0.2
* Minor fixes for PHP 5.4.x (Fixes "Deprecated: Assigning the return value of new by reference is deprecated" errors in new PHP versions.
14.July.2012 - > Version 4.0.1
* Vbulletin changed WYSIWYG editor parsing in vb4.2.x so hack's editor.php is updated accordingly.

Edit template named "headinclude_bottom" and copy everything in it except this part:

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="{vb:raw vbcsspath}additional.css" />
<!--[if lt IE 8]>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="{vb:raw vbcsspath}replacement-vbulletin-ie.css" />
<![endif]-->
{vb:raw template_hook.headinclude_bottom_css}
Then paste copied content into headinclude template.

Thank you for this mod, I just now installed it, went smooth and I didn't skip step 3.

I run an MMA site, my over all goal is to be able to bridge fighters Wiki pages into my site. I don't know if Iframes is the way I want to do it or not. I'm just now jumping in to be honest. I had messed with a Wiki mod but it seems like a dead mod to be honest so I dropped it and I'm moving to this. The biggest issue I see is that I want my side to be updated when people update the Wiki side. I don't know HTML all that well so I don't know if what I'm trying is really easy or impossible but that's why I'm here. I read through this thread and that's where I picked up Iframes. If you think there is a better way to do it than Iframes, please let me know cause that's the direction I'll be heading. Again, thanks for this mod as I'm just getting started.

Please first try to apply the solution in post 92 and if it does not work then try talking to designer.

Hi,

Came across this mod the other day and have installed it on my site, but I am having a couple of issues I can't seem to remedy and am seeking some help with the issues plus I am seeking some help on a question I have.

Issues first:

1) When I go into admincp/settings/options I select the edit usergroup as 6 which is admin and then I go into Logician's Webtemplates/Webtemplates and edit say for instance info_aboutus and check the Administrator box and even enter my username in the editor permissions settings and then save it. Well when I click the "visit" link I see nothing at the bottom of the template to edit that actual page. This is for pretty much every page I have set the settings on. The only page I can edit is the "priv_privatemessages" page. I am viewing these pages as Administrator.

2) At the bottom of the view pages there is a link linked to "Logging" if I click that link I am brought to a message stating "you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:" and lists the reasons which is a standard message from vBulletin. Should this be doing this since I am Administrator?

Question:

I like the 2 Column layout and want to really use it for the site but have 2 boxes on the left one for the site policies, about us, etc and another box for Site Membership Information. My question is how can I add another block below the default one "Site Help Pages"? I hae looked at the code but I am kinda lost on this.

Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks much in advance.

Can't you see edit this page link in default webtemplates like "test"? It is next to "Page Created at ...." line at the bottom right above" WebTemplate Quick Info Panel for Admins".

If you can't please edit the webtemplate theme that webtemplates is using (or webtemplate itself if it is not using a theme) and make sure it has this line somewhere:
{vb:raw WT_Editor_link}

Both your complaint 1 and 2 can be because your primary usergroup is not administrator. Please make sure your primary usergroup is administrator, not your secondary usergroup.

Regarding item 3:
Edit webtemplate THEME site information pages and add this code:

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

before {vb:raw nowbrowsing}

Hi Logician,

Thanks for your prompt reply.

There are only 5 pages I can see the "Edit" link. test, test_pagination, priv_privatemessages, test2 and wtlist. From what I am gathering from looking at the ones I see it in and the ones I don't it is basically only the info_*.* pages I am not seeing it in which uses the "webtemplate THEME site information pages" After searching that THEME the "{vb:raw WT_Editor_link}" was not in there so I added it right above the line.
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Now it works great.

I didn't think I changed my primary usergroup but I guess I did, lol. Sorry thats corrected and that works great.

Code you supplied worked great too, thank you very much for sharing.

Thank you very much for your help and this great mod.

Hi,

I just upgraded from vbulletin 3.8.5 to 4.1.3 and the latest release of your mod but when I try to access the templates all I get is an empty template page with just a title (see attached). What have I done wrong?

Thanks...

Hugh

Have you followed these steps correctly:


UPGRADE FROM VERSION 3.x.TXT
Just follow "FIRST TIME INSTALLATION README.TXT" to install WebTemplates 4.x.

In STEP 3, make sure "Overwrite?" checkbox is MARKED while importing default webtemplates and webqueries. This will make sure you keep your custom webtemplates and webqueries but defaults are overwritten.

Please remember that your old webtemplates and webqueries might require tweaking before working in 4.x version. This is not about hack itself, it happens because vb styling system has been completely changed in 4.x version so your 3.x tags might not work in vbulletin 4.x. So if you get some "unexpected look" in some of your old webtemplates, please edit them and make sure they use vbulletin 4.x's styling tags.
FROM: FIRST TIME INSTALLATION README.TXT
STEP 3- Close your browser, reopen it, relogin to your admin cp and you should to see "Logician's WebTemplates" in the left menu, expand it and click "Export/Import", then "Upload Webtemplate .XML File", point the file named "webtemplate_export.xml".
(There are 2 XML files, please make sure you import the file named "webtemplate_export.xml"!)
(This step is to upload default webtemplates and webqueries to your webtemplate system)

(Many people are missing step 3 above while installing the hack so please make sure you didn't!)
At this point I can suggest, removing all default webtemplates (and themese) from your installation and then apply step 3 again.

If you didn't uploaded second xml, this means your installation does not have vb4 webtemplates themese so you are viewing your webtemplates with your old 3.x themes and templates, hence having the problem.

Please remove your old webtemplate themes, upload new themes as described in step 3 and retry.
