That's completely outside the scope of this mod. That has to deal with the profile fields and not this mod.

Install both your extra options and this profile tab mod. VERY AWESOME!

QUESTION:

Now can you please post clear instruction on how to reorder the profile tabs. I want this new tab to site right next to the default About Me tab.

THANKS!

I can help you a bit with that. The problem with this is that the plugin uses template hooks, and to do what you want, you would need to move one of those hooks in the MEMBERINFO template.

Look in that template for something like:


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

And then move the line with "$template_hook[profile_left_last]" up till it's between "about me" and "stats". That should do what your want. (Assuming your extra tab is on the far right at the moment.)

Regards,

Walrick

Addition: be aware that this moves other tabs by addons which use the same hook as well. (The Blog tab for example.) Is this happens you can change the hook which extra tab uses in this plugin to "profile_left_first" and move that hook in the template instead of the hook I mentioned above.

I knew about this already. Yes I have blogs, experience, recipes, etc mods all using the damn right hook punch junk way to make a tab! So because multiple coders went the easy right hook punch way to rig their tabs we cant easily reoder tabs. What a waste of time on our end. So I will have to recode a number of mods so they use their own hook and can be reordered at anytime. Personally this is the way they should all be coded in the first place.

So now where or where do I change this to use the left hook punch code???

Better yet here is the plugin:


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

How do I make it so I can have it located in its own hook by altering the red code??? This needs to be standard for this mod as an update asap please! So to be clear here the real question that I need answered is how to make my own hook to call this tab to where I want it so it can be in the standard list on its own? I guess its time to learn how to make my own custom hooks....

Is profile_left_first in use already on your site as well? If not you could use that.

Otherwise I'd suggest googling for "vbulletin adding hooks" or something similar. I found some results already.

There's a difference between them supporting modification of the code and asking for more hook locations / forum features. They've added many hooks and features with version changes in the past, so they're definitely open to suggestions.


I suggest you change your mod to use a more diverse way to manipulate the profile tab.
No. I will not complicate this mod to make up for a perceived limitation of the tab functionality within the profile. If someone wants to make a mod that allows admins / users to easily reorganize tabs that's fine by me, but it's well outside the scope of this mod.


Thanks for a great mod! Now we need my question answered of how to get the fields which are moved to your mods extra page searchable again??? How can I do that? When fields are moved they loose their ability to be searched. Any solutions?
I have already answered that question when you asked it in the main modification's thread. Also, if you're using vB 3.8.x, it's noted at the top of the modification for that version how to have the fields searchable.

In my view the solution you removed could be very useful to the users of this modification. Now every user who needs something similar has to search for a solution elsewhere and find out for themselves how to implement that for this mod.

Not a helpful moderation. Luckily I still got the notification of new post email with the full solution in it.

I spent the whole night around the clock doing the research on how to achieve tab manipulation via custom hooks. It has a big impact on this mod and to have it moved without a warning or notification was a bit rude actually. It was only after I reposted it again because I though I was going mad in the head when I woke up to see my post and tutorial had gone missing with ZERO communication.

Anyway now that my post was moved and made into an article... I am stuck rewording the whole thing since it is now all out of context! I might get around to fixing it sometime... I had planned on talking more to PaulM to make sure my research and findings were all accurate for a larger article I was going to write in the first place.

It is important for this mod and other mods which use the left hook to know that there is actually no reason why we have to use those hooks since it is actually so easy to add hooks as it turns out.

Anyway back on topic...

All I did was make it an article as it was written as one. Anyone can read it here - How to Easily Make Your Own Movable Profile Tab Hook

Yes I concluded that from yotsume's last post. But that wasn't clear from your previous one. Looked like you had deleted it. If you had posted a link in that post, it would have been more clear.

But all is ok now. :-)
