Version 2.2.0

The new Activity Stream for VB 4.2.0 is very nice but it feels like it is missing something- and what it is missing is a sidebar. Ideally at some point VB will release a custom sidebar built just for the Activity Stream but until then this quick mod will let you use the built in forum sidebar on the Activity Stream.

As of version 2.0 besides just working on the Activity Stream the mod can now add a sidebar to ANY vBulletin page including forums, threads, groups, albums, who's online, forum leaders, and more. In fact you can easily add the sidebar even to custom pages from custom mods.

New Features
  • Now works on ANY vBulletin Page (except blogs which have their own sidebar)
  • Option to align sidebar with page content or top of page
  • Option to Disable Sidebar Collapse Option (By Usergroup in 2.1.0)
  • Collapsed sidebar state now "remembered" on different pages
  • Option to enable Sidebar by Usergroup
  • Option to disable Sidebar by Forum (if enabled for forums/threads)
  • Option to disable Sidebar in specific styles
  • Options to disable sidebars if mobile devices detected*

NOTE: To enable mobile device detection options you must install the Mobile Browser Detector mod.

Live Demo: Qapla.com Activity Stream

You can enable or disable the Sidebar Anywhere independently of the forum sidebar but they will both display the same content (blocks.)

NEW - If you need to have different blocks on different pages check out this add-on.

You must have at least 1 block setup and active for the sidebar to show.

Unlike most of my other mods this mod is enabled by default upon installation. Be default it is setup to show only on the Activity Stream and register.php pages.

I am aware there is already a mod out there "Everywhere Sidebar" by another coder. This is completely different code and I made this because my "Staff Online Sideblock" mod did not work on Sidebar Everywhere but it does work on this mod.

This mod requires at least VB 4.2.0 to work on the Activity Stream but should work on older VB 4.x.x versions on other pages.

The old version Zip file Sidebar for Activity Stream by BOP5 v11.zip works only on the Activity Stream.

PLEASE READ THE INSTRUCTIONS INCLUDED WITH THIS MOD- THEY ANSWER MOST OF THE QUESTIONS ABOUT HOW TO USE IT.

This has turned out to be a nice plugin BOP5. I rarely rate and vote mod of the month but this one will be getting my vote.

Before asking this question I searched the post with no luck. Anyway I actually need for the sidebar to be disabled on FORUMHOME template. Is this possible to edit somewhere? Reason for this is because I use vBa CMPS for that template in which I have modules that other sidebars do not yet have. I would appreciate any support you can give that will get this taken care of.

There is a built in vBulletin option to disable on FORUMHOME -

Admin CP -> Settings -> Options -> Forum Sidebar and Block Options, you can disable the sidebar from there.

Thanks for responding. However, I do not want to disable the sidebar completely. Just in the FORUMHOME Template.

If removing code from the FORUMHOME template is the option I just need to know what code it is.

Turning it off there should only disable it in FORUMHOME. Every other location is controlled by my mod which ignores that setting.

I tested it before posting. I disabled it on FORUMHOME and it still showed on my Activity Stream.

Thanks for this mod, BirdOPrey5.

I've been looking for a similar mod able to display the sidebar up to the very top of each forum page and haven't been so lucky (i.e. up & just to the left of the "register" link). Either way, I have installed your mod, because I experienced (and have heard of) some performance issues with the other option, the Everywhere SideBar mod.

And now I'm facing a little issue. I had included some text (a list of links) on the "ad_footer_start" template, which is displayed at the bottom of each page. And once I installed your mod, such text was displaced up & right, just beneath the bottom of the sidebar. I'm enclosing a screenshot for you to have a look, please.

So I have two questions/request for you:

1. Could you please suggest a way to fix this and return the original text back to its original position to the bottom of each page?

2. I could leave the text in that place, but could you please suggest a way to display the text a little bit more to the right, so it is not glued to the table to the left, as you can see in the screenshot?

Thanks again!
