Board Closed - enhancement
Mod Version: 1.00, by basilrath (Member) basilrath is offline
Developer Last Online: Oct 2015 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 3.8.2 Rating: (1 vote - 5.00 average) Installs: 7
Released: 13 Jun 2009 Last Update: Never Downloads: 39
Not Supported Template Edits Code Changes Additional Files  

Ok we all have to do various things to keep our boards on the move and updated, which obviously at times means "board closure" to allow us to do the required work within the sites admin. The little mod below simply gives those who visit the site when the board is closed something other than a very bland message that annoys guests / new registers and members alike.

Firstly:
Download the attatched zip folder named: board closed
Extract the two files: player.swf and swfobject.js

Next:
Upload both files to your server into the same place ie www.mysite.com/forum/player.swf and www.mysite.com/forum/swfobject.js

Next:
In your admin cp find vBulletin Options then from the drop down clcik Turn Your Vbulletin On and Off

Next: In the Reason For Turning Forum Off phrase box add the code below changing the paths etc (make sure there correct):


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

Make sure your paths in red are correct.
You can edit the wording to your board
Make sure the file name in blue is the name of your file
The floating top right logo is optional but if you make one as i have then add the orange code path to your image
The 640 and 480 in bold are just sizes which can be changed for your board but looks nice at that size.

Then try it !
(with the board off)

I have included a demo ........ this is not with my board closed for obvious reasons but is an exact of how it looks when closed via the php file............. HERE so you can here and hear it with the video in place.

thanks.

I liked this idea. would be awsome if anyone with graphics skills/talent could make some short animtaed .flv video to go along with this one. Perhaps with some "character" saying some stuff like "we're closed, come back later" or other funny stuff
