Usergroup Color Legend on Forum Index

This mod will add a legend to your forum index which will list the usergroups you choose in any order you specify. What I have done is taken this mod and rearranged things with a different look. Since I am not exactly one to package and release plugin's, this mod is more or less "hard-coded". I wasn't planning on releasing it but have had a few people suggest that I do so.

Live, working demo here.

There are three versions.
  • legend_images.txt - Those with images in the column of the What's Going On box who also want a Legend image.
  • legend_noimages1.txt - Those with images in the column of the What's Going On box but do not want a Legend image.
  • legend_noimages2.txt - Those without images in the column of the What's Going on box. If you do not have column images (2 columns), you must use this version.

I've attached an example of each in order of listing above. The light skin is an example of the version with images. The red skin is an example of a forum with images but no Legend image. The darker skin is an example of the version without images.

I would rather not commit myself to official support of this mod, but will of course provide help when able to. It is a very simple edit, but I make no promises or guarantees that it will work with your particular skin.

As always, dont forget to click Install if you choose to use this!

Thanks!

P.S.
This is the first time I have ever packaged and released a mod, so I'm sorry if something is not quite right :speechless:

Version History:
1.01
- Changed wording in installation
- Changed formatting of html code
1.02
- Fixed collapse issue - the collapse icon now collapses the legend, not active users

Also, the working demo shows an alternate image used to the left of the Legend. I chose to use a circle instead of a rectangle for my Legend image. You may do the same by editing the text below following img src="

Nice work GTAce, but I find amykhar's Usergroup Legend for ForumHome page hack to be a little more organised as it doesn't require you to manually input the HTML hex color value.

Not trying to rain on your parade by the way, just making sure you're aware of some of the "competition".

I'm completely aware...I have actually installed and used her hack before

At the time it was buggy...I think I was having groups displaying twice, I dont remember exactly...and I'm not sure that her hack is completely bug-free now. It could be, as it's been a while since I installed it.

Competition? I'm not trying to compete with anybody here

Whether 1 person installs or 100 people install, it doesn't really matter to me

Strange, I never had that problem with groups displaying twice before, oh well, no matter. And as I said before - please don't think I was attempting to rain on your parade, I'm always grateful when a new modification is released even if it's not the first of it's kind. No misunderstanding I hope.

Im gonna install this on my board, any chance it could be turned into a plugin so that it automatically grabs the group info for color, etc. plugin perhaps, there was one for earlier version of vB but not the newest 3.5.3 i dont think,

great work though, im trying to figure out how to set it up all right, in the instructions...
<font color=#"6 character color code for Group 1 here">
<b>Group 1 name here</b></font> <font color=#"6 character color code for Group 1 here"><b>Group 2 name here</b></font> - Members
just wondering...the bold part of the above quote, should that be group 2? Or are you really supposed to imput group 1 color twice?? And than i assume for having more groups you just copy that copy and change the names/color

EDIT: I have it now setup at www.xbf2.com/forums
One more small question, is I am using the image version and how do you get the image workign to the left of the legend, the online.gif, which folder is that located in to upload one or so on...as it is not showing up.

Thanks alot, this mod rocks!
Chris

Thanks Chris, you're right about the Group 1/Group 2 thing...I've updated the installation files with the correct numbers. As far as making this a plugin is concerned...I would love to do that, but frankly have never done it before. If somebody else would like to do this, feel free.

Regarding the online.gif image. Your style does not include this image, so you will need to use your own. Refer to this first post in this thread on how to do that. You could use this image if you would like - $stylevar[imgdir_button]/whos_online.gif

That is the same image that is used for the Currently Active User's box right above the legend.

Thanks for this mod. I'm I'll be using it.

However, I found a little bug you might want to fix up in an update.

In vB 3.5.4, the button to collapse the legend shows up. I noticed it doesn't do that in 3.5.3. Now when you click the collapse/expand button, instead of collapsing the User Legend, it collapses the Currently Active userlist and leaves the User Legend untouched. This will look pretty weird once I've put my Currrently Active User list on the top of the page.

Just pointing that out for you. You can see what I mean here: Elusive Works

Also, is there a possibility to make the legend inputs link to a list of the members currently in that usergroup? That would be a good addition in my opinion.


All in all, a great hack. Thanks

Good eye...I've updated the files to reflect that fix. If you'd rather not download them again, make the following change

Change:

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

To:

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

As far as actually linking the group names to a list of the members - it might can be done, but not something I want to look at right now at 3:15am
