Not Supported Template Edits Code Changes Re-usable Code Translations  

Updated for vBulletin 4.0.1!!!!

Hey Everyone! I went ahead and updated my vb3.x.x mod to work with the new coding in vBulletin 4. There are a few more modifications to make than the last time, but overall, I think you will find this very easy.

To start, let's look at a screenshot of what this mod will do for you, it's the image behind the username and the posbit information. This will not do anything else but assign a special background to the specified usergroup and assign the regular styling to all other usergroups:

DEMO: http://ltxtech.com/forums/showthread...or-New-Upgrade

Now that you have decided to continue with the modification, let's begin!

Navigate to:

Style Manager --> Click on the << >> Next to the template you are editing -->CSS Templates

postbit.css


FIND:

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

ADD UNDER:

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

---> Note: The Red xxxxxx is a color number. You need to specify a background color in case you aren't using an image. Remove the /* and */ around the url code to use an image. Otherwise it will just change the color of the box. I suggest fading the image to the color of the background you choose, as shown in the picture example.

FIND:

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

ADD UNDER:

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

FIND:

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

ADD UNDER:

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

FIND:

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

ADD UNDER:

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

FIND:

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

ADD UNDER:
/*Custom Postbit Background - Userinfo Alignment*/

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

That does it for the CSS file. Now we need to do one last thing, and that's edit the posbit_legacy template.

Navigate to:

Style Manager --> Click on the << >> Next to the template you are editing -->Postbit Templates

postbit_legacy:

FIND:

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

REPLACE:

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

FIND:

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

REPLACE:

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

The RED # is the ID of the usergroup that you want to have a unique background. In my example picture, the administrators have the custom image, so the # sign is replaced in the code with a 6, because the ID for the administrator usergroup is 6. To find the ID, go to usergroup options in the AdminCP and look at the chart. The group ID should be on the same line as the usergroup name.

All right! You should now have a styled postbit legacy background image for a specific usergroup!

I can't really provide support, I'm extremely busy with work and life, but if I pop in from time to time I'll try to help. Also, please, please, please create your own background image. I do not want my image being used. If you would like to setup the modification and use my image to get it up and running, that's fine. But I am asking that you create your own after it's installed properly.

Good luck guys!

What should the dimensions of the images be in pixels? and If they are smaller than the actual "rectangle" where all the information is under the avatar etc.. is the image placed on the bottom or to the top or to the left or right? Like how is it shifted/placed?

Thanks.

I think there's something wrong...

Your modification says to find the following:


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

How ever, I found this:

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

As you can see, the original is much longer so I think the installation instructions has to be adjusted.

I haven't updated this to the newest VB release. This was written on beta 4, so the instructions are only for beta 4.

If you want an image, you need to supply one and place it in the CSS. It's commented out. Check the first section of code to add/replace for it.

That's because you removed too much of the code from the CSS. You need to use this line:


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

One usergroup is like this:

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

Two usergroups is like this:

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

You keep adding the statement over and over and then add a vb:if at the end for each additional phrase you add. Then, you must duplicate the css each time for each usergroup. So, in the example for installation, I use userinfo2 for the duplicate css codes. Each additional usergroup will have an incremental increase, so the css for the 2nd usergroup would be userinfo3, the 3rd user group would use userinfo4, and so on. Just keep duplicating each of the steps above for each usergroup.

It's not possible to make it simpler? Because duplicating css I think shouldnt be necessary if you can somehow do that.

If there's a simpler way, I don't know it. The way I explained it is known to work, so if there is a better way, then by all means go for it. I just don't know what that way is, sorry
