Support

I use my released mods daily, if I find an issue with them or add features for myself I will release updates. If there are significant bugs or simple feature requests I will do my best to release fixes. Some of my mods rely on fetching data from 3rd party websites, due to the unreliable results, my mods will require users to troubleshoot for themselves if they find the addon is not working for them specifically. I am offering my personal mods that work ok for me for you to use, I am sorry I do not have time to troubleshoot many user specific issues. Thank you for your understanding.

Features

  • Lists all ranked Gamertags, each updated once per day
  • Optionally show unranked Gamertags (Original Xbox Users).
  • Optionally allow Xbox Live message sending.
  • Optionally allow Xbox Live friend requests.
  • Optionally to choose how many User Names Per Page to display.
  • Optionally require a minimum post count.
  • Optionally to add a navbar link.*
  • Optionally to add a miscellaneous quick link.*

  • Optionally display leaderboard statistics

  • Limit access by usergroup.
  • Optionally display Forumhome stats
  • Optionally display Memberinfo gamercard
  • Optionally display Postbit leaderboard rank
  • Monitors invalid gamertags, 5 attempts to verify the gamertag and then the users gamertag profile field is blanked to prevent further checks.
  • Can link directly to a gamertag position in the leaderboard with gxboxlive.php?gt=Gamertag

Thanks.
Never mind fixed it. Needed to reload images / misc / gxboxlive to my styles misc folder if anyone else has the same problem.

Great mod. Have had it installed for a while now.

Is there any chance you can make the code and CSS validate? It can harm the overall site SEO as far as search engines go if the code doesn't validate.

Great mod though it is really useful for any gaming site.

The cron is set up to run EVERY minute 24/7. I recommend going into your scheduled tasks and change it to run every Monday or everyday at a specific time.

first of all, this is a fantastic hack and thank you for making and supporting it It installed with no problems and works great.

I was wondering though if it's possible to display the leaderboard stats in a specific forum rather then on the forumhome?

I guess no one knows the answer?

I have tried putting $gxblstats into the forumdisplay template but nothing displays

I have also tried copying and pasting the code from the gxbl_stats template into the forumdisplay template and it partially works. It's strange because it will display the table, and the general stats (ie number of players, gold account, silver accounts etc) but does not display anything in the other columns where the avatars and top ranking player info should be etc....

please refer to attached image.

Any ideas on how I can get this working?


Nevermind, I got it working. For anyone else who wants to display the stats on a specific forum, all you need to do is go to

1. edit gXBL: Stats Forumhome in plugin manager
2. change the hook location to forumdisplay_start
3. Edit the forumdisplay template and add the following where you want the stats to display:


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


where X = the id of the forum you want it to display on


4. make sure that the 'Show Statistics on Forumhome' setting is set to yes, but have the 'Automatically add to Forumhome' setting set to no.

Please note that by making this change you ill no longer be able to display the stats on forumhome.

Is there a way to display just the pic of all the user's avatars, rather then the full avatar? Similer to the gamertag pic, where if you hover, it shows the full thing, or even, remove the avatars alltogether?

Gryphon,

Any idea why this mod conflicts with Live Topic?

You can edit gxbl_bit to make the changes you need.

Try disabling gXboxLive - Showthread > Postbit insert location. I am not positive what the issue is, I haven't been able to test it with the other mod, not sure how soon I can.

Following your lead, I went into Vbulletin Options > gxboxlive showthread and changed the hook to 'none' and now both mods live together happily, but obviously the xbox live leaderboard ranks are not displayed in posts.

If you find time to look into it, great.

Ever since upgrading to 3.8, the top avatar tiles take a long time to load. Anyone else having this issue?

When we upgraded to 3.8 it started throwing us weird database errors. Any chance this is going to be updated as an official 3.8 plug-in?

The tiles are hosted by xbox.com, their load times are dependent on the performance of that site.

I am using 3.8.0 without issue. The mod should be pretty independent of any vBulletin version. There is little vBulletin code that this mod relies on. What are the errors? That would help.
