$foruminfo[] array

Hi all,

What are the variables available in the $foruminfo[] array? I'm looking to linkify the forum description box, so the name of the forum links to the forum.

Hi everyone!

Thanks for reading this thread and I hope you found it helpful. I'm currently putting together an ebook to help people get started with customizing vbulletin with their own pages and products/plugins. Step by step instructions (with screenshots) on how to create your very first custom product (introduction to custom php files, plugins, hooks, style templates, integrating user information, etc), as well as tips, tricks, and code snippets that you can use to get some commonly asked things done... and all in simple to understand english

If interested, shoot me a private message.

Customizing vBulletin can be fun! Let us show you how

Update:In the meantime, be sure to check out's articles section, and the vBulletin Manual.

You have $vbulletin->userinfo['username']. Where is $bbuserinfo['field6'] via the function call?

This is good stuff. I do have a question that isn't covered.

Say I have a multiple choice custom user profile field that is stored bitwise in the database.


Choice 1 = 1
Choice 2 = 2
Choice 3 = 4
Choice 4 = 8
Choice 5 = 16

So if a user selected choices 4 and 5, the stored value would be 24.

How could I evaluate this easily with an If/Then statement so that I could display the appropriate icons under the username in the postbit based upon each choice.

For example, the for the user above it would need to display two icons that correspond to choices 4 and 5.

If an user had selected ALL fields, the value would be 31, and it would need to display 5 icons.

I've done plenty of the <if condition="is_member_of($post, X)"> logic when it comes to usergroup membership, but this bitwise storage is confusing.

Can anyone show me a quick sample that would help clear this up for me?

Edit: I figured it out. Here's the answer for anyone looking for it:

Just read your variables article and it was very helpful! However, I still can't figure out how to pull into the postbit template, a poster's paid subscription information in 3.5.8.

Tried an if condition to check for $user['donator'] (hoping this would grab the check for paid subscriptions field in the user table) but that isn't working and I can't figure out where in the db the field is for the user's paid subscriptions...

Any ideas?

ditto! And Thanks!

Another Question (this thread seems appro): those pesky 'lil "phrase variables" embedded within vB phrases (ie: the ones that look like {1} and ofttimes come with plugins) what's the easiest way to add more or change 'em?

Forgive if stupid question,

Sorry to resurrect a seriosuly old article, but since I found this useful in 3.7 and 3.8, it might be nice to get some updated info in here...


My question is what is the proper {vb:raw} expression to put a profile field into a template?
