This mod allows you to have set terms and conditions for all new threads via an iframe.


******PLEASE CLICK INSTALL IF YOU USE THIS******


I'm no programmer and I'm using this only until a more sophisticated mod is available for vBulletin 4. It's my very first one, so please be gentle with me!

What this mod does:

Adds a simple iframe to the new thread page so members can see your posting terms and conditions before they create the thread.

What it does not do:

Cannot be set for individual forums...the iframe is universal. Any hints on developing this a bit more will be appreciated.

It does not create the terms page for you...you must have one already in order for it to be included. Just add the link to the code below to show your page.

To install:

Go to your admin panel and find the newthread template in whatever skin you are using:

admincp/Styles & Templates/Style Manager/Edit Templates/New Posting Templates/newthread

Look for:


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

Underneath it add:


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

Change the link to your terms page and that's it. The table border colour, #557eaa, can be changed to match your own forums, and of course the height and width of the iframe can be modified, too.

Ok, it's not cool, but I really needed this for my own forums and just decided to share.

Edit: The zip file has been updated to include a basic terms & conditions page which you may or may not want to use. Just upload it to your own site and link to it within the iframe.

User group permissions and setting it for individual forums would be a welcome addition.

I really needed something like this... but maybe without iframe would be really good
I have requested that before but no response yet?

:P I really wish you knew some coding hehe.. otherwise I wouldn't really have to wait for posting terms just before new thread

Why not just add it in a <textarea> tag, and do away with iframe

I would make a span class, instead of inline . Cleaner code. Good effort Dr.

Some great suggestions there.

The reason I wanted an iframe is so I could include as much content as I wanted on my external terms page without it taking up so much space on the actual posting page. My terms and conditions are quite verbose.

But what you have to edit template to insert it in a section above the threads in each new thread instead?
