This modification is in the archives.
vB Version: 3.6.8 Rating: (4 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 58
Released: 11 Nov 2007 Last Update: 19 Nov 2007 Downloads: 635
Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Template Edits Additional Files Re-usable Code Translations  

Tested with vb 3.6.8 and blog 1.0.2

*Requires the Vbulletin Blog product.

This hack extends the blog functionality by letting the users manage, in a limited way, their "styles".
They'll be able to choose a background color, color for the entries and the titles, and reorder the panels in the blog in any way they want.

Instead of all looking the same, with this hack the users have LIMITED control over their blogs.

Key functionality
  • User may create "styles", as many as they want. A style consist in a background, header, second header, first and second alternating color
  • User can select a style for his blog, the style is used immediately
  • User can reorder the position of: "user info", "search", "calendar", "options", "last comments" and "categories"
Installation Instructions

See the included readme.txt

Changelog

1.0.2 (Upgrade instructions: reupload includes/functions_blog_customize.php)
  • Bug fix: Guests couldn't see the custom styles
  • Bug fix: Only the owner could see his style, visitors and other users saw the default
1.0.1 (Upgrade instructions: reupload the files in the "upload" directory and reimport the xml for the product)
  • Fixed bug where, when "transparent" is selected, or an empty color, the message "The color is not valid" is displayed to the user
  • Fixed a bug where, the icon for transparent and switch wasn't shown
  • When the color is not valid, the detailed color that was not valid shown (this is for security, so your css only contains valid colors)
1.0.0
  • First release

How did you test it with vbulletin 3.6.4? I thought the blog would only work with 3.6.8.

Yes, all the templates that start with blog_customize_* are from this hack. Instead of the user_sidebar template, everything was split into different templates. If want to put an adsense, then the BLOG template should be the better place, since then the add would appear almost everywhere in the blog.

The color of your adsense is controlled by google, and would be the same no matter how the user changes the color of his blog.

OK - testing..... Seems like the individual colour options are not per Personal Member blog ONLY but also show for all other blogs.... Any work around for that?

Again- Thanx for the share

Jacquii.

fixed, thank you
reupload only "functions_blog_customize.php" of the includes directory. I have updated the zip file.

Even if it would be a nice feature: "View all blogs like my own", I don't think that's what most people expect
