Spider Display for vB 4
Version 1.1.3
(By Boofo)

What does this product do?
This product will display the number of spiders on Forumhome and Who's Online. It will also add the count behind the spider name on Forumhome if there is more than one of a certain spider [ i.e. Google (3) ].

Credits:
A big thank you goes out to Adrian for helping me come up with the fix for this for vB 4.1.2, and straightening me out on keys in an array. Also, thanks to Paul M and Mosh for the comma fix for 4.1.8. Another thanks goes out to Mosh for the image file as well as making the mod work with all versions of vB 4. And yet another thank you goes out to HMBeaty for helping me find the fix for vB 4.1.10 and testing it thoroughly.

Version Information:
Version 1.0.0 --Initial release for vB 4
Version 1.0.1 --The count variable was wrong for the spider plural convention. Thanks goes out to Mosh for catching it. Also, the spiders_vbulletin.xml file has been updated to a more recent version, and the link for it below has been changed to another site that is keeping it up to date better than the original spiders list.
Version 1.0.2 --Fixed double comma issue with vB 4.0.5 in IE8.
Version 1.0.3 --Fixed issue with spiders displaying in a vertical listing in some browsers. The phrase ",with 0 spiders" will no longer show when there are no spider names listed.
Version 1.0.4 --Fixed to work with vB 4.1.2. Also, the "spiders_vbulletin.xml" file has been updated to the latest version as of February 15, 2011. => vBulletin 4.1.2 only
Version 1.0.5 --Added a setting to change the color of the spider name in the listing. Added a setting for Allowed Usergroups who can view spiders in the listing. Added a "View Map" link that will show up behind the spider count (or guest count if no spiders are currently on the site) on both the Forumhome and Who's Online. This link will only be visible if you have the "Digital Point User Map" mod installed. The spiders_vbulletin.xml file has also been updated to the latest version as of February 25, 2011. => vBulletin 4.1.2 only
Version 1.0.6 --Removed font color setting and added Style Variable setting for the Spider Display Font Color, so it can be set for each style separately. Set the dependency minversion to 4.1.2 in the xml file so there would be no improper version installs anymore. The spiders_vbulletin.xml file has also been updated to the latest version as of March 15, 2011. => vBulletin 4.1.2 only
Version 1.0.7 --Now fully phrased, as requested. => vBulletin 4.1.2 only
Version 1.0.8 --Should now work with all versions of vB 4, from 4.0.0 and up, including 4.1.8. Added a spider image to show before each spider, if the setting is enabled. It is off by default. The "spiders_vbulletin.xml" file has been updated to the latest version as of November 29, 2011.
Version 1.0.9 --Added a white spider icon image to go with styles that are dark. A setting has been added to choose what color image (black or white) you want to display before each spider name in the listing. The "spiders_vbulletin.xml" file has been updated to the latest version as of January 1, 2012.
Version 1.1.0 --Removed setting to choose the color of the spider icon and replaced it with a new style variable for the path to what spider image you wish to display for each style.
Version 1.1.1 --Added a setting to set the vertical alignment of the Spider Image. Added some more spider images.
Version 1.1.2 --Fixed to work on vB 4.1.10.
version 1.1.3 --Fixed to work with DragonByte Tech InfoPanels version 2.04 and above only.

NOTE: The word "Spider" or "Spiders" will no longer show up after each spider name listed in the activeusers listing on the Forumhome.

I remember you having this available for the 3.8x vB versions a year or two back. Do you still have that one available Boofo?

No, I don't, but it wouldn't be too hard to take the pre-4.1.2 version and get it working as it uses basically the same code that the vb 3 version did.

Uninstalled from 4.1.3 ....

Tested and when enabled, site just freezes solid with a "white screen" when main forum home page is clicked upon. If this mod is disabled, then site access returns and works fine. Able consistently duplicate this problem, so there must be a conflict with another mod or vBulletin software setting itself someplace.

Thanks anyway ...

Regards,
Doug

You're got more going on than just a setting or a problematic mod, if this mod doesn't work.

Could be, but it's the only mod (out of 24) that doesn't work on our v4.1.3 install ...

No big deal and not that important in the big scheme of things ...

Thanks anyway ...

Regards,
Doug

My point was that if this mod is giving you those kind of problems, then you can expect more of th same from other mods in the future. Better to figure it out now than to have to deal with it all again later on.
