What is this:
By default VB4 sidebar will be shown only on forum home page. This mod Will display the Sidebar everywhere in the forum. This mod assumes that you already set your sidebar block from "forum blocks manager".

Current Version:
1.5.3 (Free)
2.2.13 (Gold)

Demo:
Latest Technology





Features :
  • Add ESB to Blog (Gold version only).
  • Option to set ESB in blog sidebar (Gold version only).
  • Option to replace blog sidebar by ESB (Gold version only).

  • Show sidebar in the vbcms pages (Gold version only).
  • Rotating Ad system included in the sidebar (Gold version only).
  • Filter Block by usergroups (Gold version only).

  • You can hide sidebar in the excluded forums mod options.
  • You can show sidebar for all or show it for non members.
  • Now you don't have to enable sidebar from option. Enabling this mod will enable sidebar everywhere. But you need to set sidebar blocks from "forum blocks manager".
  • All previous bugs have been fixed.
  • The ability to exclude certain usergroups.
  • The ability to turn sidebar off for certain forum styles.

  • In 1.3.3 you have ability to exclude groups from the above feature that is to be always visible. So that the excluded group members will be able to collapse ESB.
  • In 1.3.4 the vertical collapse button is removed and blocks is forced to by expanded if "Don't hide ESB switch" is set to yes as requested in this post
  • In 1.4.1 pl1 custom html/php block bug and some other bugs were fixed.
  • In 1.4.3 you can set sidebar width and sidebar button top alignment from mod options.

Requested Features [ To Do ] :
  • -

Mod requirements:
  • The mod is tested on default vb style with no other mods. So we gurantee that mod will work on the default vb style with no conflict with other mod.
  • As a courtesy we may make minor fix so the plugin works on styles other than the default but we are not hold to it.
Installation:


1. Download plugin.
Only free ver:If you are using vb4.1.11 or above download the "cssrollup_everywhere_sidebar.xml" and upload "cssrollup_everywhere_sidebar.xml" to /includes/xml directory.

2. Login to your vBulletin admincp.

3. Open "Plugins & Products", and go to "Manage Products".

4. Click on "[Add/Import Product]".

5. Import the product-everywhere_sidebar_xxx.xml file that you download. Make sure you set "allow overwrite" to "yes".

9. Any block you want to hide add its block id with colon on "Filter Blocks by forums" or "Filter Blocks by page" text box in the mod options. For example to hide block_html_7 on all forums except forum id 1 and 2 we will add this "block_html_7:1,2" without qoutes to "Filter Blocks by forums"box; and to hide it in all other pages except faq and calendar we will add this "block_html_7:faq,calendar" without qoutes to "Filter Blocks by pages" box.

change the padding size for #sidebar_container as you wish

Most asked question:

Q:I've installed your sidebar mod and it works fine except on the forumhome! The sidebar is showing at the bottom of the page. Any idea how to fix it?

A:It is either due to one of these:
1. you are using a custom style that is changing the forumhome look.
2. You are using a nother mod that is changing the content of froumhome before this ESB.

ESB needs to see this in forumhome
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

So to tix this problem you either need to make sure that
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

exist in the correct location or change ESB forumhome plugin to search for a new phrase.

for the latest version 1.4.1+ it looks for

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

and

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

so if you are setting new style make sure not to remove or change
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

and

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

location to get sidebar in the proper location.

- on my iPhone, if I go to my site, I get the sidebar on the mobile.

- if I log in on my iPhone with my admin account, I get the sidebar on the mobile.

- if I go directly to the style id by editing the url to add ?styleid=xx the sidebar goes away

- if I log out of the admin account, the sidebar comes right back

You can even test this by looking at the mobile style in your PC browser, the sidebar will not be there if you manually choose your mobile style or preview it by the Style Manager link.

So if, as an Admin, I go directly to the mobile style, I do not see the sidebar. However, if I do not manually choose the style, and let the auto-detection hack do the job of assigning my style, the sidebar shows up at the bottom of my page.

I have also tried it by enabling style choice at a regular user level, and then choosing the style with the selector, and again, a manual choice works, the sidebar is ignored. If the style is assigned automatically by the detection hack, the sidebar shows up.

Dexter...

For those having trouble with this on Mobile skins, if you are using the auto-detection hack by Dartho, here is your solution.

The ESB hack is only checking the style choice according to the user's stated preference in their control panel. The auto-detect hack overwrites that if you are on a mobile device, but does not actually change your saved style setting. So as far as ESB knows you are not using the mobile style, and setting the ESB preferences to ignore style XX has no effect.

So, to fix this, go into your Style Manager, choose your mobile style, and Edit Templates. Find the ESB template which is named "sidebarext_temp." Edit that template, and remove all code from the template. Save the template. This should stop the ESB from showing up at all in your mobile style, since there will be no code to render for the ESB template in that style.

Dexter...

Question Problems with rss2 feeds and ES - external.php

I have installed ES long time ago on my board and I love it. Never had any serious problems with it. But for the past few days I get a lot of database errors coming from external.php and rss feeds. I don't know how it is possible but these errors appear only when ES is enabled. If I disable ES - errors don't show up anymore. I think there's something wrong with box cache. If I disable one of the cached sidebar boxes external.php works once. Every consecutive request results in error.

Has anyone ancountered this error? Any ideas? Any help? I have a "bigboard" - north of 1200 people online during the peak times...

Errors are:

Thanks
I have the same problem and I'm on vb4.08. Disabling this mod for now.
