Not Supported Uses Plugins Template Edits Additional Files  

(This hack is for vb version 3.5.x AND 3.6.x. For vb 3.0.x and 2.x see my profile for relevant threads.)

(For vb 3.7 version, please go to this thread)

"WebTemplates" is a vBulletin integrated Content Management System which allows you to create vb integrated "HTML" pages in your vb admin cp very easily. The pages can inherit your vbulletin skin/style, can recognize logged-in user, can be applied permissions per user or usergroup basis, can keep visit logs, hit counts and do many more.






WEBTEMPLATES 3.5.x BASIC FEATURES:
  • Very Easy Installation : Webtemplates can be installed to your board without modifying even a single vbulletin file. It is coded as an pluggin and supports phrase system for user interfaces.
  • Apply VB Permissions: You can ban any webtemplate to any user or usergroups easily. So for instance you can design a webtemplate which only members can see while guests can not, or only user A can not see etc.
  • Page Counter : Each webtemplate has a built-in counter and you can display page count to your visitors and you can edit it or turn it OFF/ON per webtemplate basis.
  • Visitor Logging&Tracking : You can track certain users' (by usergroup or userid) webtemplate visits to see who visited a webtemplate and when. This is configurable per webtemplate basis.
  • Site Contributers (Editor) Support : You can grant editing permissions for certain users or usergroups for your webtemplates individually and they will be able to update these webtemplates using their own editor interface. vB's WYSIWYG editor is supported in Editor interface.
  • Page Browsers & Who is Online Display: Webtemplates can display who is browsing that webtemplate while visitor is reading them (like default forum browse display of vbulletin). Webtemplate visits can also be monitored in who is online page.
  • Header/Footer Inclusion : Webtemplates can automatically use headers/footers (your default vb header/footer or custom ones)
  • Help Documents : The script comes with an extensive help document.
  • Admin Panel in Webtemplates : Your webtemplates can include an "admin panel" displayed to only admins and by using them you can access many details and stats of your page while you are browsing them.
  • SEO friendly URLs: You can make webtemplate URLs seo friendly in vb settings (Requires apache server).
  • XML Import/Export : XML Import/Export feature allows you to backup your webtemplates and use other hack users webtemplates in your board.
ADVANCED FEATURES FOR ADVANCED USERS:
  • Webquery Feature : With advanced "webquery" feature you can create dynamic webtemplates which include database query results. For instance you can easily add "last 10 threads forum X", "most active users list" etc. to your webtemplates with default webqueries that comes with installation or you can create your custom webqueries with basic SQL knowledge.
  • Multi Parsing : Webtemplates can parse PHP or HTML or TEXT (=smilie/img tags/bbcode parsing like vb posts). This means you can design a page just like vb posts (TEXT parsing), standart HTML (HTML parsing) or even in PHP (PHP parsing).
  • PHPINCLUDE per webtemplate : Every webtemplate has its own "phpinclude" field which you can run PHP codes before loading the Webtemplate
  • Theme Support : Webtemplates support "themes" which are parent webtemplates which include child webtemplates in them. For instance if you have 20 similiar pages which uses the same visual look, you can make a single theme for all of them, then just insert their content into this theme. If you change theme later, all 20 pages' visual will change automatically.
  • Conditionals : Webtemplates supports VB3 template conditionals so you can design webtemplates which change their display under different conditions.
  • Default variables : You can use/display certain variables in your webtemplates like username of the visitor, visitor email address, last visit time, page creation time, page last edit time, Last visitor name, last visit time etc.
Sample WebTemplates from Sites using this hack:
(Some 3.5 and some are 3.0 versions but WebTemplate look and feel didn't change much so both will give you the idea)

If you use the hack, clicking here will make sure you'll know about updates&bug fixes. It will also help me understand how many people is using the hack so please click the install button if you use it. Thank you..

Note in 6.August. 2006 : I've tested Webtemplates with vbulletin 3.6.0 gold version and they are compatible. So this hack released here is both for vb 3.5.x AND 3.6.x

Note for vb 3.7.x : (29.July.2008): For vb 3.7.x, I released a new version here:

Not sure how it looks fine - I can see a major difference between the 2. Can you see how the white body of the page is gone - and the page extends well beyond the 950 pix i have the page set at - it goes 100% across the page.

I believe it is about the style you are using. It can be an unclosed HTML tag, a wrong HTML syntax etc. (Especially in header/footer templates). Also please make sure you use the default WTs and WT themes for your initial tests, then start customizing them if you do any such changes.

This is happening in an unaltered default vb style also - same thing - goes 100% across and loses the white background.

How do I edit the Powered by text? I don't mind having a copy right notice but I don't think people need to know what versions I'm using.

I just installed the latest version on a fresh board..

Is there a way to get it to show the page name instead of 'Unknown Location' with who's online? The link works fine - just the name doesnt show.

Thumbs up

I'd just like to say that I uploaded this and read the instructions and all the information with it and it's the easiest explanation and easiest doing that this newbie has ever seen.

I give it two thumbs up for anyone new and old....

Rock on!

Error

Receiving the following error, while trying to export templates to xml (to port from my test site to live site)

Warning: Missing argument 1 for vb_xml_builder() in /includes/class_xml.php on line 465

Fatal error: vB_XML_Builder::Registry object is not an object in /includes/class_xml.php on line 473

Any suggestions? I assume I did something wrong...

Chad

Noticed that this is being worked on, let me know if it gets fixed... BTW, awesome Hack!!! Best mod I have installed...

Although this hacks works fine with vb 3.6.x, there is only one small glitch it has in 3.6.x versions and this is the one you pointed out. It has problems exporting existing templates in 3.6.x.

I fixed the problem but can't find time to release the new hack for weeks, so actually it is my fault that this minor glitch is still there. Sorry about it!

To get rid of it, please make this small change:

Edit file admincp/wt_export.php and find line:


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

Replace it as:

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

This should fix the problem.

Logician, thanks for the info on the export glitch and also for keeping up this hack. I'm trying to upload a wt for PaulM's proxy to real ip hack (a report of last 30 days of proxy users).

When you do release the new version, can you update the product XML with the new version number, too, please. I redid the install a few times, expecting 3.6.0.02 and seeing 3.5.0.05

Hello
I suppose this is probably something small, but I havent found a solution yet.
I have links set up in my forum that link to my WebTemplates pages. However, when I click them it opens it in a new window! I want 'internal' links that are for my site to open in the same window. I want only external links to open up to a new browswer window. Is this possible? Thank you!!

I did a search for "count" and "iterate" on this mod and found nothing (can't handle going through 50 pages of posts) so I will ask my question:

I want to create a page that displays the results of a query in three columns. This means I need code within the query that iterates the records and keeps count - when it reaches three it will end a table row then start a new row.

how can i add code for a multiline recordset such that I can keep a counter as the records are returned?

This question is really nothing to do with the hack. What kind of links did you put into your forum. If you put links within your templates, you have to configure your link HTML code. Eg. if you put

<a href='view_aboutus.htm' target='_blank'>About Us</a>

You have to remove target part and make it:
<a href='view_aboutus.htm'>About Us</a>

If your links are within your forum messages, your vb settings (for 3.6.x) decide how they open. You have to change the relevant setting in vb admin cp/vb settings section.
