Current Staff Online Forum Sideblock and CMS Widget by BOP5
Mod Version: 0.99, by BirdOPrey5 (IB Staff) BirdOPrey5 is offline
Developer Last Online: Jul 2019 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 4.2.x Rating: (21 votes - 4.71 average) Installs: 190
Released: 19 Jun 2012 Last Update: 30 Jun 2012 Downloads: 1350
Not Supported Uses Plugins Auto-Template Re-usable Code Translations Is in Beta Stage  

Brought to you by BirdOPrey5
www.Qapla.com


New Version: 0.99 Beta
New in 0.99
  • Added Widget
  • Added Settings instead of manual configuration
  • Added phrases for "None" and "No staff currently online." text.
  • Made code more compatible with older VB Versions (should work in 4.1.x now)




This is my first attempt at a Sideblock and Widget. The purpose of this is to list all forum staff members online.

There are settings to choose which usergroups are considered staff groups and for other basic settings.

The product .xml file contains the necessary templates and phrases but you will need to manually install the sideblock code itself and/or manually create the widget.

Specific installation instructions are in the .txt file in the zip file but the overall process is:
  • Upload the Product XML File
  • Add code to additional.css template
  • Edit Settings in Admin CP -> Options to setup your options
  • Create Sideblock (if using Sideblock)
  • Create Widget (if using widget)
  • Add Widget to Layout(s) (if using widget)


Overall this is working well- it is Beta as it's my fist Sideblock and Widget. I know it works on VB 4.2.0 but it should work on earlier versions as well (code was revised in Beta 0.99 for greater compatibility.)

If you get an error at the top of the browser window when you enable the sideblock or widget you know your VB version is too old.

In addition to working with my Font Selection by Username mod it will also work withe my Sidebar Anywhere mod.

Does not work with "Everywhere Sidebar" mod but DOES work with MY "Sidebar Anywhere" mod.

For some reason the avatar is posting exceptionally large (160x118), is there something I can do to fix that?

EDIT: I do have the CSS code posted in additional.css .. it just seems to not recognize it.

You sure it's posted in the correct style's additional.css? Can I get a link to your site so I can see it with my browser?

If you read the page and instructions it says this mod should work between 4.0.8 and 4.2.0
I was just trying to let the designer know that I got error messages with 4.1.12
I would love to see this for 4.1.12

Hi Dude!

I like your idea and wanted to provide a little translation to german but you seem to be out of phrases

The mod is perfect if you could phrase the following displayed texts - concerning the situation that noone from the staff is online:




Finally the mod seems to work as you can see - I tried on 4.2

It is not phrased that is true, but it is something you can edit via the configuration at the top of the PHP code.

If you have need to use phrases you can create the custom phrase(s) in GLOBAL phrases and in the top of configuration set the options such as:


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

You just have to create those two phrases (staff_online_none and staff_online_no_one_online) in Phrase Manager.

That code goes in your additional.css template of each style you use- are you sure you put it in the right location?

If so I need a link to your site to check.
