vB Version: 3.0.11 Rating: (4 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 142
Released: 16 Feb 2005 Last Update: 25 Jul 2005 Downloads: 57
Not Supported  

After a long wait, here is the new 3.x version of Webtemplates for vB 3.x boards. First a short introduction for users who are not familiar with the old version:

This hack is a vBulletin integrated content management system. Term "Webtemplates" stands for dynamic webpages that reside in your MYSQL database and administered inside your vbulletin admin control panel. But they are more than regular site pages because they can automatically inherit visual design of your forum, can apply permissions according to your vb usergroup settings, can keep track of page counts, last visitorname/visit time, display page browsers in the page itself and in your whoisonline page etc. So basically webtemplates are dynamic web pages of your site which are powered by vbulletin. Or more simply putting, with this hack you can create regular HTML pages in your vB admin cp and these pages will be integrated into your vbulletin database about permissions, styles etc.


WEBTEMPLATES 3.x FEATURES:
  • Easy Installation : Webtemplates can be installed to your board without modifying even a single vbulletin file, nor does it modify any vbulletin database table! It is coded as an add-on, not a hack.
  • Apply VB Permissions: You can ban any webtemplate to any user or usergroup according to their userids or usergroupids. So for instance you can design a webtemplate which only members can see while guests can not, or only user A can not see etc.
  • Private Webtemplates : With 1 click you can make a webtemplate "private" and it will be displayed to only certain usergroups.
  • Draft Webtemplates : You can put webtemplates in "draft" mode which makes them invisible to all but admins.
  • Page Counter : Each webtemplate has a built-in counter and you can display page count to your visitors and you can edit it or turn it OFF or ON per webtemplate basis.
  • Visitor Logging&Tracking : You can track certain users' (by usergroup or userid) webtemplates visits to see who visited a webtemplate and when. This is configurable per webtemplate basis. Webtemplates have visits logs which admins can see.
  • Site Contributers (Editor) Support : You can grant editing permissions for certain users or usergroups for your webtemplates individually and they will be able to update these webtemplates using their own editor interface. vB's WYSIWYG editor is supported in Editor interface!
  • Page Browsers Display : Webtemplates can display who is browsing that webtemplate while people is reading them (like default forum browse display of vbulletin)
  • Who is Online Display : Webtemplates can display page visitors in who is online (This is Optional and require a simple hacking in file /functions_online.php). You can create private webtemplates which are hidden in who is online too.
  • Header/Footer Inclusion : Webtemplates can automatically use headers/footers (your default vb header/footer or custom ones)
  • Help Documents : The script comes with built-in & detailed help documents (they are webtemplates too).
  • Admin Panel in Webtemplates : Your webtemplates can include an "admin panel" displayed to only admins and by using them you can access many details and stats of your page while you are browsing them.
  • Good Performance : Webtemplates 3.x structured so that it performs well even under heavy load conditions and high traffic servers. (See Performance issues below)
  • Easy Back up: Simply back up your database (inside vbulletin or externally) and all your webtemplate structure is also backed up automatically.
ADVANCED FEATURES FOR ADVANCED USERS:
  • Webquery Feature : With advanced "webquery" feature you can now add create dynamic webtemplates which include database query results. For instance you can easily add "last 10 threads forum X", "most active users list" etc. to your webtemplates with default webqueries that comes with installation or you can create your custom webqueries with basic SQL knowledge.
  • Multi Parsing : Webtemplates can parse PHP or HTML or TEXT (=smilie/img tags/bbcode parsing like vb posts). This means you can design a page just like vb posts (TEXT parsing), standart HTML (HTML parsing) or even in PHP (PHP parsing).
  • PHPINCLUDE per webtemplate : Every webtemplate has its own "phpinclude" field which you can run PHP codes before loading the Webtemplate
  • Theme Support : Webtemplates support "themes" which are parent webtemplates which include child webtemplates in them. For instance if you have 20 similiar pages which uses the same visual look, you can make a single theme for all of them, then just insert their content into this theme. If you change theme later, all 20 pages' visual will change automatically.
  • Conditionals : Webtemplates has built-in support for Logician's advanced templates conditionals so you can design webtemplates which change their display under different conditions. (Even if you don't have that hack installed)
  • Default variables : You can use/display certain variables in your webtemplates like username of the visitor, visitor email address, last visit time, page creation time, page last edit time, Last visitor name, last visit time etc.
  • Archieve to Text File : Webtemplates/Webqueries can be downloaded to a text file with one click for archiving purposes. You can also easily share these text files with other hack users.
  • Outside Variables : Advanced users can now use outside variables in webtemplates, then webtemplates will accept/use/process user sent variables via HTTP_GET and HTTP_POST methods (eg. a HTML form can post to a webtemplate with this feature)
For screenshots, FAQ, performance issues, migration from old version to new version, see below.

If you use the hack, clicking here will make sure you'll know about updates&bug fixes. It will also help me understand how many people is using the hack so please click the install button if you use it. Thank you..

My conditional syntax is first introduced in this first version of webtemplates and then I used the same context in many of my other hacks. At this time, there was no VB3 and vbulletin had no conditional concept. In other words my conditional syntax and concept is older than that of vb3.

To maintain backward compatibility, I keep supporting my syntax in my own hacks, besides I find it easier to use.


My conditional syntax is same in all my hacks so Dynamic Forum Home Announcement conditionals are fully compatible with webtemplates or vice versa. Hence you can use these samples in webtemplates.
yes but they dont have a full list.
Is there a list to go by?

I would also like to see a list of condition examples.
I don't think that Jelsoft has one so maybe we can collect some here?

Full list of what exactly? The conditionals that you can build up is endless, they can not be restricted to a list. If you are looking for samples of this endless list (generally most used), you can find them in the hack threads of my relevant hacks (Webtemplates 2.x for vb2.x, Advanced Templates w/Conditionals hack for vb2.x, Dynamic Forum Home Announcement hack for vb2.x, Dynamic Forum Home Announcement hack for vb3.x)

Besides the conditionals you can use with this hack is not much different than the default conditionals of vb3. It is just the syntax that matters. So Vb 3 syntax is:

<if condition="$bbuserinfo[userid]==1">
if userid is 1, show this
</if>

my syntax is:

[[($bbuserinfo[userid]==1)]]
if userid is 1, show this
[[/($bbuserinfo[userid]==1)]]

as you can see the conditional here is same ($bbuserinfo[userid]==1), it is just the syntax that differs.

There are 3 optional steps. In which of them you have the problem?

I think you have a big confusion somewhere. The code you quoted is not from this version of the hack but it is from Webtemplates v2.x hack. If you are installing the 3.x version, please redownload the instructions from this thread and apply only this instructions to your board. Do not download or apply ver2.x instructions, it is for vbulletin 2.x boards!

I found the problem, it is NOT the hack.

Maybe some one can help me, I'm calling a page created with webpage from an external flash button in a different div/iframe with:

getURL("http://fmagazine.com/forum/view.php?pg=chat_template$session[sessionurl]", "forum");

This don't find the url

If instead I use:

getURL("http://fmagazine.com/forum/view.php?pg=chat_template", "forum");

I get the page but I loose the user name.

Please help

I guess FAQ item 2 answers your question.

BTW no, this hack is not even half interesting in comparison to your site's subject.
