vB Version: 3.7.0 Rating: (1 vote - 5.00 average) Installs: 37
Released: 02 May 2008 Last Update: Never Downloads: 140
Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Auto-Template Additional Files  

This is meant to emulate the old VBPad which seems to no longer be in production and died out in version 2.x. A client who is upgrading needed this for their 3.7 site so I wrote it up.

It allows your users to have up to X notepads in their user CP for just themselves. Can set user group permissions.

I will support this as I can but don't expect miracles. Sure, there are many other functions that could be added, but my job was to keep it as close to VBPad as possible so as to not upset the applecart too much. I wrote it completely from scratch and this will NOT upgrade anyones current installation of the old VBPad. The database is completely different as the last version was put together rather poorly.

Enjoy and don't forget to:

Ok, I should mention I have only tested this on 3.7.. Should work on 3.6.x but you never know.

Well what would be great is the ability to have a drop down menu of canned messages aka notepad entries from within the postbit and the private messages.

That way it can be very easy to select a notepad entry and post it in the post/thread/private message

That would be amazing! Something ive long wanted.

Dies this have a list of canned entries or does a box show up for each one? If you had enough entries the page could get very long with just boxes.

Got an error:

Warning: mysql_real_escape_string() [function.mysql-real-escape-string]: Access denied for user 'nobody'@'localhost' (using password: NO) in [path]/vbnotes.php on line 45

Warning: mysql_real_escape_string() [function.mysql-real-escape-string]: A link to the server could not be established in [path]/vbnotes.php on line 45

We are using mysqli to connect to database and this seems to be related to that.

Hello Jafo232

Thank you for the hack. Ive it install in vb 3.7 without any problem

I have a query, it is possible that when you click at the notes, ther are opened within the main table. Preserving in this way the control panel side navigation table?

Feel free to edit the template any way you wish to accomplish just that.

I've installed it and everything went smoothly but when I try to use the notepad within my control panel - I am confronted with this message..

smooth-c, you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:

1. Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?
2. If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation.

Even though, in my usergroup permissions the vbnote option;

Permission to use VBNotes

Is set to Yes.

Any help?
