Developer Last Online: Nov 2019 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 4.2.x Rating: (6 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 20
Released: 26 Oct 2016 Last Update: 22 Feb 2017 Downloads: 70
Not Supported Uses Plugins Auto-Template Translations  

Overview:

This product allows you to define a message that can be displayed above the ckeditor anywhere new posts are created and edited. We know our users read our carefully constructed rules about as carefully as people read instruction manuals in general. This product can be used to display a message or even list of reminders for proper posting conduct on our sites, which will make it more likely that your users are actually aware of what is allowed and expected when posting.

You may select the forums in which this product is active and the active areas in those forum from showing it only when new threads are created to everywhere new posts are created/edited. You may select certain usergroups to be exempt from seeing the message, and for those users set to see the message, you may decide to stop showing the message once they reach a certain post count, or have started a certain number of threads. You may decide whether the message element is collapsible or not and you may set a maximum height for the message element in case you message takes up a lot of vertical space and you don't want it taking up too much space on your pages.

Quick Edit:



Updates:

Version 1.1:
  • Updated query for thread count to only include the active forums.

Version 1.2:
  • Declared $foruminfo array global in plugins that render custom template.

Version 1.3:
  • Now allows for different messages/titles to be displayed in different forums.

For example, if you edit your message to read:

BEGINFORUMIDS 2,3,4 ENDFORUMIDSMessage 1...BEGINFORUMIDS 5,6,7 ENDFORUMIDSMessage 2...

Then (given that forums with forumids 2-7 are in the "Active Forums"), forums with a forum id of 2, 3 or 4 will display "Message 1..." and forums with a forumid of 4, 6 or 7 will display "Message 2..."

Messages may be stacked as well, that is you can define a message that appears in all forum messages, and then have additional messages that are specific to certain forums that will get added to any previous messages that apply to the forum.

For example, if you edit your message to read:

BEGINFORUMIDS 2,3,4,5,6,7 ENDFORUMIDSMessage 1...BEGINFORUMIDS 2,3,4 ENDFORUMIDSMessage 2...BEGINFORUMIDS 5,6,7 ENDFORUMIDSMessage 3...

Then (given that forums with forumids 2-7 are in the "Active Forums"), forums with a forum id of 2, 3 or 4 will display "Message 1...Message 2..." and forums with a forumid of 4, 6 or 7 will display "Message 1...Message 3..."

The stacked messages will appear in the order in which they are defined.

Block titles work the same way.

Version 1.4:
  • Added setting for header CSS.
  • Added setting for content CSS.

Version 1.4.1:
  • Resolved issue with activity stream.

Compatibility:

Tested and working on VB 4.2.x and may work on all 4.x versions of vBulletin.

Sorry for such a quick update, but I realized when counting new threads for a user, only those threads started in the product's active forums should be counted.

Update - Version 1.1:
  • Updated query for thread count to only include the active forums.

I don't have vB 4.1.x with which to test, and so I don't know whether it will work with those versions or not. In order for me to be more specific about which version are compatible, I depend on those with versions to which I don't have access to let me know if it works on their version or not.

Yes, there are links in the settings to modify the title of the block and the contents of the block. You can use whatever you like there, and if you want help using HTML to make it look exactly like you want, let me know and I will be glad to assist.
