GTUserCP - Enhanced USERCP Interface + USERCP Menu

This modification is in the archives.
vB Version: 3.6.8 Rating: (89 votes - 4.85 average) Installs: 780
Released: 12 Jan 2007 Last Update: 12 Nov 2007 Downloads: 5533
Not Supported Template Edits Additional Files  

NEW 1.1.1 VERSION (download

The 1.1.0+ version now replaces the USERCP_SHELL template. No edits are necessary. However, manual edits are required if you wish to use the UserCP Menu like we have here on

If upgrading from a previous version you can revert the "USERCP_SHELL", "SUBSCRIBE", and "usercp_nav_folderbit" template.

Custom modification brought to you by Joe Velez (aka Princeton Admin).

This modification is a combination of the new USERCP and the UserCP dropdown menu.

Why would you want to install these features?
  1. Decrease Server Resources
  2. Increase Usability
Support modification by "Installing", "nominating for MOTM", and/or donating.

How does this help with server resources?

Typically if you want to edit or view your personal information you would click the UserCP navbar link (wait for the page to load) and click the option you wish to view.

Did you know?

You just hit the server with 11 Queries + HTTP Request + Bandwidth just for visiting the UserCP default page. What's worst is that this is not even the page that you want to view. Yep, you guessed it there goes an additional hit to the server.

Add this modification to bypass the UserCP default page.
The savings are HUGE especially on a big-board site.

How does this help with usability?
  1. Private Messages are the most frequently used user option.
    • Moving this to the top will give members quicker access.
    • Displaying custom folders will also bypass some pages (clicks) and therefore decreases server resources.
  2. Collapsing/Expanding some of the options will provide members quicker access to what is important to them.
This modification has been reported working on earlier vb versions 3.5.4+.

  1. Install product via Product Manager.
  2. If you want to add UserCP Menu read the README file. This has to be done manually.
  3. Show your support click "Mark As Installed", nominate for MOTM, rate this modification, and/or donate.

v 1.1.1-2 : Missing phrase
v 1.1.1 : Added SUBSCRIBE template replacements
v 1.1.0 : New 3.6.8 version released (w/ template hook)v 1.0.2 : Added missing template changes

there still is unphrased text: search for "view all" in GTPM_USERCP_SHELL.
Please note that there will be no further updates to my addons, especially they will not be upgraded for vB5. I'm leaving vB, since IB choose to go the banana-way yet again.

I got bored and made this compatible with 3.7 Beta 3, if you want to use it go ahead I'm not going to support this post so if you find any errors in this code fix them yourself.

Replace your entire GTPM_USERCP_SHELL template with the contents of the attached .txt file.

A screenshot is also provided.

I am using a custom template that did not originally use the navbar menu, but i added it myself and that may be why, but as mentioned the code was still the same as your directions. i can attach navbar code if needed. thanks for help.


I have the same problem, any idea?

It doesn't work if you just install it??

It's running perfectly on my 3.6.4, and I don't think there have been any drastic changes from 3.6.0 to 3.6.4, I might be wrong though...

Thumbs up

Installed on 3.74beta and thought it was working fine, but realized two fields are effected:

The "Edit Profile" Box
The "Buddy Ignore Lists"

Should be an easy fix for someone who knows what they are doing? Unfortuantley, I don't

Thanks, Looking forward to this working VB 3.74+

that is correct .. I believe other changes are required - but I haven't really looked into it. I will once there's a 3.7 Release Candidate.

any new updates will be for the 3.7 Release Candidate

I can't find this, from the README:

<if condition="$show['member']">
<td class="vbmenu_control"><a href="usercp.php$session[sessionurl_q]">$vbphrase[user_cp]</a></td>

in navbar. I can only find vbmenu_control in FORUMDISPLAY and SHOWTHREAD.

Where is it accessed at navbar?

edit: The navbar I figured out. Somehow it got deleted from one of my styles.

Also, the images aren't displaying.
