vBadvanced Homepage v1.1 Released! (01.27.04)

vBadvanced Homepage is an advanced homepage / portal that will allow you to include different options from your vBulletin message board on your site's homepage. It also allows you to easily create and manage new pages which are completely powered by vBulletin and vBadvanced. There are over 40 options where you can enable/disable the features, plus everything is template based so it is very easy to customize and change everything through your Admin CP.



Features:
  • Login box for members to log in to your site on the homepage.
  • Post News in a forum you specify and have it appear on your homepage.
  • Create new pages in which the content will replace the news section of your homepage.
  • Show the latest threads started in your forum on your homepage.
  • Show a poll and allow users to vote and see the results on your homepage.
  • Shows users avatar, new private messages, and buddy list for members who are logged in.
  • Shows a list of active users.
  • Shows statistics such as total members, threads, posts, top poster, newest member, and today's birthday's.
  • Shows a mini calendar with links to days with scheduled events, and a box with today's scheduled events.
  • Search box to allow users to quickly search your forums.
  • Set and change all options via the Admin CP.
  • Ability to easily switch on/off the polls, users avatar, buddy list, online users, search box, calendar, custom templates, news icons, news comments, smilies, set the maximum number of news posts, and many other options via the Admin CP.
  • Everything is completely template based so it is very easy to customize.
  • Install file that will make all database queries and templates for you in seconds.
  • Uninstalls in seconds.
  • Tested and stable with vBulletin 3.0 RC.
  • 100% validated XHTML 1.0 compliance
A nice feature of vBadvanced Homepage is that it is optimized and designed for large web sites. vBadvanced Homepage performs only 5 queries with all the options turned off. Some options will cause the script to perform extra queries, but even with all the options turned on it still performs only 17 queries at max.

Here is a list of each extra function that will cause extra queries:
  • News - 1 query
  • Latest Threads - 1 query
  • Poll - 1 query (2 if the user has voted)
  • User's Avatar - 1 query
  • Buddy List and/or Online Users - 1 query
  • Mini Calendar - 3 queries (none for the simple calendar)
  • Stats - 2 queries
  • New Posts - 1 query

Probably because the new version uses a string replace function to replace paths in a few different places.

And to be honest, I didn't even know that there was an issue with the CSS files... It just happens I was using the string replace for something else, and it also affects the stylesheets.

Very nice...one quick question...why don't you add as a comment how many queries each setting would add. Also how about making it so more custom blocks can be added.

Great job!
