This thread is in the Modification Graveyard.
vB Version: 3.8.7 Rating: (1 vote - 5.00 average) Installs: 7
Released: 10 Jul 2012 Last Update: Never Downloads: 57
Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Auto-Template Additional Files Re-usable Code  

UADisplay is an abbreviation of User Agent Display. This is my modification (or update if you will) of Fighter1405's original plugin:

http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=219687

Because he hasn't made a post since 2009, I decided to update his useful plugin with the latest operating systems and browsers in mind (which were lacking in his version), and also I've added a lot of other operating systems (Windows 7, Android, iOS, various Linux distributions, *BSDs, etc.) and other obscure and rarely used browsers, among other user agents. I also redid the icons completely, this time with a height of 24 pixels (previously it was 18 pixels).

If you've been using Fighter's old version, I'd recommend to uninstall his plugin before you install my version, since it's not possible to have them both installed.

I intend to add OS and browser version numbering too, kind of like you can see here:

http://www.emulab.it/forum/index.php?topic=422

This one is a bit complicated though, as it requires a lot of code and I'm not sure if this is even supported by vBulletin 3. I know it works in vBulletin 4 however. If you want to give me a helping hand and suggestions with the code, I could add this faster, as I'm newbie programmer and still learning.

What this plugin does is to add two icons in the postbit of operating system and browser. An example of what it looks like, using Android 4 Ice Cream Sandwich:



Install steps:
1. Upload the icon folder to images/useragent
2. Import the XML file through Manage Products in admincp

Those of you who have downloaded it and installed it, I'd appreciate any feedback from you, what you think can be improved and updated and added or removed. Any browser or operating system you think should be included? All user agent strings (complete at that, from the server logs and not from the who's online php page) are welcome.

No instructions are needed. You need to import the XML file in admincp, and then the plugin should work.

I'm using 3.8.7 and it's working just fine.

Yeah, could be. Do you have any other postbit plugins installed? It could be that you've tampered with your postbit using other plugins or something. It's difficult to say what your problem is. It would be nice if someone else could duplicate your problem.

Could you try temporarily disabling those mods to see if it works?

Here's a good site for you to check your user agent string (for the more unusual browsers and operating systems) and give it to me so I can add it:

Also, I could need some help from a skilled developer in adding the version number next to the icons. All help is appreciated.

I've tested it with vBulletin 4.2 now, and it works just as good as on 3.8.7. I'll upload the 1.1 version soon.

It's working for me on all new posts. Doesn't seem to affect posts made previous to install.

However... I would like to change the alignment of the icons.

See my screen shot.... How can I align them to the left?

No, it doesn't work on older posts because the posts that were made before you installed the plugin, never saved a user agent.

Next thing I'm going to work on (aside from adding new user agents and icons) is adding version number and operating system/browser name as descriptive text. Once that is done, I'll try to add icon positioning. I'm also going to release a vB4 version.
