vB Version: 4.x.x Rating: (4 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 108
Released: 25 May 2010 Last Update: 30 Jun 2011 Downloads: 814
Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Auto-Template Additional Files Translations  

Description
Splits the User Online section on the Forum Home to allow for staff/team members and users to be split into separate groups. This is the latest version of my previous mod and is now compatible with 4.0.x. My 3.7.x version was itself a new version of Surviver's original modification which was made for vBulletin 3.6.4.

My 3.7.x version of the modification can be found here:
http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?p=1537920


The rjs_split_online_40_vb4.1.2.zip download is only compatible with vBulletin 4.1.2 and above.

However if you are still using 4.0.x up-to 4.1.1 then please use the original download: rjs_split_online_40_pre4.1.2.zip




Features
  • Currently allows for five different types of extra users (Admins, Staff, Premium, VIP, Donators) on top of the usual members (for those not assigned to any of the other groups).
  • This is controlled through the usergroup manager whereby you can select Yes or No for each of the five types of users.
  • This works off a user's display usergroup for which section/s they will appear in on the online listing.
  • The titles for the six groupings (5 plus members) can now be managed inside the Vbulletin Options inside the Split Useronline section.
  • Compatibility with User Legend Hacks (providing their Execution order is set to 2 or more)
  • You can use HTML markup to change the colours of the titles. e.g

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

  • The default additional spacing between the groups is now optional. This is managed in the VBulletin Options alongside the other settings above.
  • There are no manual template edits any more.

Installation
  1. Upload all necessary files to their respective directories. Overwrite files where prompted.
  2. Install the product XML file. Be sure to Allow Overwrite.
  3. Check that Split Useronline tool is turned on: vBulletin Options -> Split Useronline -> Activate: Yes
  4. Decide whether you want to use the additional spacing between Groups.
  5. If you are using a 4.0.x version prior to 4.0.6 then you will need to make the below template change:

    Style Manager -> Expand the "CSS Templates" Group -> Customize "split_online.css"

    And then change the following:

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

    To (i.e. remove "#wgo_onlineusers "):

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

    After you do upgrade to 4.0.6 just revert the above template and all will be fine.
  6. Set relevant permissions for each usergroup.

Upgrading from 2.0.0 (was made for vBulletin 3.7.x)
Do not uninstall the old version of this mod before installing. Upgrading from my 3.7.x version of this modification should be painless. It will auto remove the previous version (if you have it installed). As detailed above I've switched from using phrases to vbulletin options to define the titles for the groupings. This was done due to user feedback from the last release. The groups each have a default title in place however they can easily be changed to your own preference.

Upgrading from 1.0.3 (was made for vBulletin 3.6.4)
Unfortunately anyone wishing to upgrade from Survivor's original modification will be unable to. You will need to uninstall this product at your own convenience. The usergroup assignments are also managed through the usergroup permissions screen rather than the vBulletin settings.

Changelog
2.5.0 - 4.0.x compatible release.
2.5.1 - Fixing issue with friend icons/invisible icons not appearing.
2.5.2 - Changed order of groups and made the extra spacing optional.
2.5.4 - Added an Automated CSS Template instead of manual template edits.
2.5.5 - Resolved compatibility issues with latest VBulletin. vBulletin 4.1.2 and above only

Author Notes
The main priority was simply to get a 4.0.x compatible version released but at the same time I did try to listen to user feedback and thus increased the number of groupings to five. In addition to this I also changed how the group titles are defined in an attempt to make this more accessible.

Credit for the original version of the modification still goes to Surviver.

Also the credit for the ilog function and the product un-installation process found within the installation code goes to Paul M.

Sorry I have been busy with a few other projects. I'll upgrade my test forums sometime this week and take a look at it.

Are you sure you guys didn't just lose:


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

from vbulletin.css when you upgraded? If that seems to be causing confusion when people are upgrading then I could create a separate css template for it, just seemed a bit wasteful for 2 lines of css lol.

EDIT: And Badger without looking I'd say that would be because that usergroup is probably not included in the normal listing. Try disabling the plugin and seeing if a user in that usergroup appears or not. I work off that same list of users, I just make it appear differently.

Hmmm....

When you say ... I'd say that would be because that usergroup is probably not included in the normal listing. ....

Do you mean a setting under AdminCP UserGroup settings that is vBulletin's and not the one that belongs to your mod? Is that new, as I don't ever remember a setting that caused specific usergroups to appear or not appear under the forumhome listing of who's logged in?

Regards,
Badger

I don't believe there's a setting for it. But if you disable this plugin you'll see that those same users still won't appear. VB don't seem to count "Awaiting Email Validation" users as members so they're not included as part of the online list. I suspect they categorize them as guests instead.

Interesting...

Didn't realize they now did that in VB4 ....

I even changed that group to be recognized along with your Admin group and they still didn't appear and neither does the "Awaiting Email" group ...

The list of online users is always the same and is provided by vbulletin's code. I don't add or remove from the list. Effectively all my plugin does is present the list in a different way. It subdivides the list of users into further groups.

So yeah any usergroups that aren't used such as "Awaiting Emails" won't ever be shown in the list no matter what options you use when editing the usergroup.

Use the CSS that's in the initial post lol (under the heading Template Edit). I think I'm going to create a separate css template and auto include it because this seems to cause confusion for people installing it /upgrading vb. I'll probably get that done over the next couple of weeks.

Thanks ...

That saves me a lot of chasing my tail type diagnostics ...

I wonder why vBulletin decided after all these years to pull those user groups from the standard display. We found it useful to spot people who keep trying to login and use the site without completing the registration process.

Badger

Hey console. Yea, I checked that first and it was fine on my end. Not sure about others. But, I use Template Modification System and I never directly edit a template. I always create a mod for them so I never have to redo the template edit again later. Although, for this situation, I did check my mod to make sure it was working too. I could not locate the problem so I edited the plugin to keep from messing with it. It works the way I need it to now so all is well on my end.

EDIT: Ignore this post. Decided to release the update straight away so skip to the next post.

Ok, I've just updated my test forums and I could see what the problem was straight away. They've changed the CSS affected the online user listing and the changes they made meant that my css was no longer taking affect.

I'll roll out an update including the fix very shortly but in the meantime if you haven't already followed Sarcoth's alternative fix (doing both until the update would likely double the effect) then just change the two lines of CSS to:


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

all I've done is add #wgo_onlineusers to the front of the two lines.

Just means that my css now takes priority again.

EDIT: When I say release an update: I'll be putting those CSS changes into their own template and auto including just to avoid any issues like that (even though that wasn't the problem this time around). I'm updating the initial post now with the new instructions.

Okay, I decided to just get that update done and released. I've tested the installation on my own live forum and it's gone through fine. Also remember to set the "Allow Overwrite" option to yes. If you have any problems just post them here and I'll be happy to help.

I'm happy to get rid of the Manual CSS changes even though that wasn't the cause of these latest issues lol.

It did for me. Mine was on by default and I was able to turn it off.

As Sarcoth said, it should be turned on by default unless it's been changed to Off in the Vbulletin Options. When it's on you'll have a gap between each group (like in the screenshot attached to my main Mod post). When it's off then there won't be any gap the groups will just appear straight under the one before them.
