Spider Display for vB 4
Version 1.1.3
(By Boofo)

What does this product do?
This product will display the number of spiders on Forumhome and Who's Online. It will also add the count behind the spider name on Forumhome if there is more than one of a certain spider [ i.e. Google (3) ].

Credits:
A big thank you goes out to Adrian for helping me come up with the fix for this for vB 4.1.2, and straightening me out on keys in an array. Also, thanks to Paul M and Mosh for the comma fix for 4.1.8. Another thanks goes out to Mosh for the image file as well as making the mod work with all versions of vB 4. And yet another thank you goes out to HMBeaty for helping me find the fix for vB 4.1.10 and testing it thoroughly.

Version Information:
Version 1.0.0 --Initial release for vB 4
Version 1.0.1 --The count variable was wrong for the spider plural convention. Thanks goes out to Mosh for catching it. Also, the spiders_vbulletin.xml file has been updated to a more recent version, and the link for it below has been changed to another site that is keeping it up to date better than the original spiders list.
Version 1.0.2 --Fixed double comma issue with vB 4.0.5 in IE8.
Version 1.0.3 --Fixed issue with spiders displaying in a vertical listing in some browsers. The phrase ",with 0 spiders" will no longer show when there are no spider names listed.
Version 1.0.4 --Fixed to work with vB 4.1.2. Also, the "spiders_vbulletin.xml" file has been updated to the latest version as of February 15, 2011. => vBulletin 4.1.2 only
Version 1.0.5 --Added a setting to change the color of the spider name in the listing. Added a setting for Allowed Usergroups who can view spiders in the listing. Added a "View Map" link that will show up behind the spider count (or guest count if no spiders are currently on the site) on both the Forumhome and Who's Online. This link will only be visible if you have the "Digital Point User Map" mod installed. The spiders_vbulletin.xml file has also been updated to the latest version as of February 25, 2011. => vBulletin 4.1.2 only
Version 1.0.6 --Removed font color setting and added Style Variable setting for the Spider Display Font Color, so it can be set for each style separately. Set the dependency minversion to 4.1.2 in the xml file so there would be no improper version installs anymore. The spiders_vbulletin.xml file has also been updated to the latest version as of March 15, 2011. => vBulletin 4.1.2 only
Version 1.0.7 --Now fully phrased, as requested. => vBulletin 4.1.2 only
Version 1.0.8 --Should now work with all versions of vB 4, from 4.0.0 and up, including 4.1.8. Added a spider image to show before each spider, if the setting is enabled. It is off by default. The "spiders_vbulletin.xml" file has been updated to the latest version as of November 29, 2011.
Version 1.0.9 --Added a white spider icon image to go with styles that are dark. A setting has been added to choose what color image (black or white) you want to display before each spider name in the listing. The "spiders_vbulletin.xml" file has been updated to the latest version as of January 1, 2012.
Version 1.1.0 --Removed setting to choose the color of the spider icon and replaced it with a new style variable for the path to what spider image you wish to display for each style.
Version 1.1.1 --Added a setting to set the vertical alignment of the Spider Image. Added some more spider images.
Version 1.1.2 --Fixed to work on vB 4.1.10.
version 1.1.3 --Fixed to work with DragonByte Tech InfoPanels version 2.04 and above only.

NOTE: The word "Spider" or "Spiders" will no longer show up after each spider name listed in the activeusers listing on the Forumhome.

The pre-4.1.2 version doesn't need any updating. It works fine as is. I won't be adding anymore to that version as I am now on 4.1.2 and that version won't work on 4.1.2.

Caution ....

Before you upgrade, make sure you keep your older version handy ..

Updated to v1.05 and it hung our site. Only thing members saw was a blank white screen and the word "done" on their browser screens.

It was working fine with previous v1.03. We never bothered to upgrade to v1.04 since the only change was support for vb4.1 and we're running vbulletin 4.04pl1.

We re-installed v1.03 again and the site recovered and seems to be working fine again, with the exception of some residual garbage left over where it shows the user names logged in (see pic). It's showing extraneous information about spider names and counts, that never showed before under v1.03, so I assume that's left over from the brief encounter with v1.05. I hope it goes away when the sessions drop? Anyone know how to force clear this field to restart to clear it now?

Thanks anyway for the update. It might be a conflict with another mod we use and v1.05, but if so, it never existed with v1.03.

Regards,
Doug

Edit: Can't get the extraneous junk continuing to be displayed (see pic) after the aborted v1.05 update discussed above. I can make it go away by disabling the re-installed v1.03 of this mod, so I've turned it off for now until someone can help us with permanently getting rid of it. It actually seems to be updating with the spider data, even though v1.05 was overwritten with v1.03 to recover our site after v1.05 took it down. Should I completely uninstall v1.03 and re-install it.. or, put v1.05 back and uninstall it completely, then re-install v1.03?

Sorry, my apologies ..

I simply read your update instructions and revision information posted in header here, which say "vB Version: 4.0.x ... Spider Display for vB 4 Version 1.0.5"....

I didn't understand 1.05 or 1.04 to be mutually exclusive and version specific, rather simply it added additional support for vb4.1 ...

Perhaps a bold statement in the top post info to this fact might help others avoid the same miss-step?

Anyway, through my own mistake, now I have some kind data pollution in the members on-line listing that keeps showing spiders and updating, even though I'm back at 1.03. I assume it's picking up the data from someplace and I can't get it to clear, except by disabling or un-installing 1.03.

I did try try complete installs and uninstalls of both 1.03 and 1.05, neither of which made the extraneous data go away.

Can you help at all?

Regards,
Doug

As outlined above, our forums go blank like this, but apparently it's due to 1.04 and 1.05 not being compatible with vBulletin 4.0.0.

What version of vBulletin are you trying to install it on?

Regards,
Doug
