"Postbit_Legacy REVERSED Layout 1" by Freesteyelz
Version: 1.0

Re-Inspired By: Ricky6039's thread: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=114862

Thank Yous: Ricky6039, Boofo and Chris M
==============================
==============================


Description:
The posbit_legacy is displayed in reverse. For fluid and fixed-width layouts.

Here's an idea that was re-inspired by Ricky6039's thread. It was a layout I did in UBB back in the day (2001) and now releasing it for vB. This is the first layout in the series. Future releases may come depending on requests, capability and energy.


Examples:
See attachments below.


What to expect?:
- Thread/Post title is displayed in place of Post Date.
- Post Date and Username are displayed in place of Thread/Post title.
- The user popup menu will display only in the first Username (left column). The second username link will go straight to user's profile.
- Replies will display just left of post #.
- User Online Status and User ID are displayed in the Username column.
- Online Status, Report Bad Post and IP images are replaced with text for a cleaner look.
- Message/Signature and User's info are bordered.


Requirements:
vB versions 3.5.3+ (3.5.4 should work; 3.5 versions possibly but I haven't tried it.)


Assumptions:
That you are editing the Default vB Style or at least using the Default vB Style as a Parent Style.

Can it work for custom styles? Yes. You may, however, need to re-work some of the codes for the layout to display properly. I successfully did this on several custom templates. Since many of us are using different styles I thought it would be better to use the Default vB Style for the instructions.


PLEASE!!!
Read the instructions carefully. Take your time when editing.

This is a template edit with quite a few steps so pace yourself.


Browsers Tested:
Internet Explorer & Firefox


Supported:
I'll try to answer your questions the best I can. Please click install to notify you if any changes are made.


Instructions:
Download the .zip file, extract and read the instructions.

Thanks. While I've enjoyed the style for years and so have my members/guests, it can take some getting used to since most people use the conventional layout. The majority of the comments I've received was that having the post in the left column made reading easier.

Similiar to a portal layout. Of course I would display other info not repeat the info.
A three column? Yes, that's possible. What type of info will the 2nd postbit box contain?

While I haven't tried that I'm sure that's possible. Though, I think it would make reading less enjoyable to your users.

Yes. While there is a plugin mod here at vB.org take a look at this post by Freddie Bingham, a vB Developer.

*In order for it to work you will need to go to your vB Options --> Style & Language Settings and set postbit_legacy to "No". The postbit (Top) will be the default view for the user. For postbit_legacy view, users can go to their User CP and change the value to "Left".

Well, that is one opinion I suppose. I disagree with you on this.

This is true. I actually thought about that for the vertical postbit view since all text are aligned left anyway.

Freestylez...the second box would be for gaming stuff on my site. I would display the users contact information for each type of console.

How could this be done?

Ahh...I see. You'll utilize the left and right sides to the User's profile and information bits; the middle column will contain the post? While what you're asking is another modification I can give you a general idea on how to accomplish what you want.

First, can you please give me in detail what will be contained in the left column and then the right column. If it's not a complicated edit I can give you the instructions in this thread.

On the left side the basic standard postbit info

On the right side it would be Field X probably about 8 of them all with if conditions.

In the instructions where it states:


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

Skip it.

Then when you see this:


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

Remove the codes between the <td> and </td> tags. Then add the Profile Field bits with conditionals something like:


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

Then when you see the instruction:


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

In that code replace this:


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

With:


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

I haven't tested it but it should work. All I added in the last step is the colspan.

You may of course need to tweak the change of codes to your standards. I hope it gives you a starting point.

I get this error message when saving

The following error occurred when attempting to evaluate this template:

Parse error: parse error, unexpected '<' in /home/********/public_html/forum/includes/adminfunctions_template.php(3537) : eval()'d code on line 178

This is likely caused by a malformed conditional statement. It is highly recommended that you fix this error before continuing, but you may continue as-is if you wish.

Ooops. I forgot to add the ending quote. The above code where it says:


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

Change it to:


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

See if that helps.

It can be. Show me what you have now and we'll think something up.

*Again, this isn't part of the modification for anyone else who is wondering what we're doing.

Actually I think this is a GREAT idea and the possibilities on how to use it are endless :bunny:

Don't you have to change the size of the post message box, or am I missing something? :surprised:

Unhappy

Under certain circumstances this does NOT display correctly in Firefox. Works good in Safari though....

With Firefox, when there is one post (original thread post) or 3 or more posts it works in Firefox, BUT if there are two posts then the first post becomes too large and doesn't render correctly

(see screenshot).
