vB Version: 3.7.x Rating: (47 votes - 4.85 average) Installs: 871

Not Supported Uses Plugins  

Exciting Announcement! vBulletin 3.7.0 now includes a built in Welcome Headers System (named "Notices") that easily allows you to add and control your own welcome messages with functionality above what can be found in the traditional welcome headers system. There are some important differences in these systems so please read this thread before upgrading.

-----------------------

Important: If you are upgrading from the 3.6 or earlier versions and have modified the navbar template you will either need to revert it or add new vBulletin code as shown in http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showp...&postcount=152.

Out of the box, your forum isn't personalized to assist or address your visitors. As a result, guests entering on a page other than the homepage (which is most often the case) have no idea what to do or why to register. Additionally, there are no visible status indicators, making it confusing for unconfirmed, unapproved or new members to know what to do or where to begin. But with a little customization, the use of the vBulletin Notices System and Welcome Headers, you can solve these issues in just a few minutes.

What is Welcome Headers?

Welcome Headers is a set of predefined messages and rules designed to help you get started in personalizing your site's notices using the vBulletin notice feature. The default templates are just that, default I highly encourage you to modify and add to the language and rules to meet the needs of your actual community environment.

Modifications/ Instructions:

Plugins: 1 (notices entries, rules and phrases)
This template hack should take under 5 minutes to implement and customize.

Installation/ Upgrade Instructions

1 Backup any existing welcome header messages (upgrading)
2 Remove the default welcome header from your forum home template (new installs)
3 Install the attached plugin file
4 Now Required: Customize the messages to include your site's name

For detailed instructions on each step please view the install.html file included with this addon.

Support

Please post any enhancement or technical questions you may have and I will do my best to respond in a timely manner. Please note: I can not guarantee an immediate response and am unable to assist with integrating this addon with other addons or with HTML related questions.

Frequently Asked Questions

Please see the second post in the thread for a list of frequently asked questions which is updated periodically.

Older Version Support

While most users are choosing to upgrade to the notices system, there are some advantages to the "old" system mainly in that it does not rely on a rules system and can be configured as designed with code changes. Additionally, the "old" version has automatic interfacing with several other addons which the notices system does not. For this reason, the old version is still supported and remains fully compatible with 3.7.

Updates

- 5/9/2008 :: A small upgrade has been released fixing the typo in the sendmessage.php file

Well that explains it! They've added a new bit of code to the navbar template which you'll need to add:


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

Anywhere near the end of the file is fine.

Yes they were there but I could not get them to display on the main page when your not registered. And I did remove that coding as noted as well. Am I missing something

I did get his and install it. But to be honest I'm not going to keep it. Way too complicated to set up.

Add one variable to one template and turn on/ or off 2 settings plus change any messages you wish to? I'm not seeing anything amazingly difficult or complex.

Hi, I managed to get the message to display for guest. But for the rest of the criteria it doesnt display. Is there a way edit the messages. like prompting users awaiting confirmation to activate their account and how to go about doing it.

Thanks
