GTUserCP - Enhanced USERCP Interface + USERCP Menu
Mod Version: 1.1.1, by Princeton (Coder/Designer) Princeton is offline
Developer Last Online: Feb 2020 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

This modification is in the archives.
vB Version: 3.6.8 Rating: (89 votes - 4.85 average) Installs: 780
Released: 12 Jan 2007 Last Update: 12 Nov 2007 Downloads: 5535
Not Supported Template Edits Additional Files  

NEW 1.1.1 VERSION (download GTUSERCP_111-2.zip)

The 1.1.0+ version now replaces the USERCP_SHELL template. No edits are necessary. However, manual edits are required if you wish to use the UserCP Menu like we have here on vbulletin.org.

If upgrading from a previous version you can revert the "USERCP_SHELL", "SUBSCRIBE", and "usercp_nav_folderbit" template.


Custom modification brought to you by Joe Velez (aka Princeton vbulletin.org Admin).


This modification is a combination of the new vb.org USERCP and the UserCP dropdown menu.

Why would you want to install these features?
  1. Decrease Server Resources
  2. Increase Usability
Support modification by "Installing", "nominating for MOTM", and/or donating.

How does this help with server resources?

Typically if you want to edit or view your personal information you would click the UserCP navbar link (wait for the page to load) and click the option you wish to view.

Did you know?

You just hit the server with 11 Queries + HTTP Request + Bandwidth just for visiting the UserCP default page. What's worst is that this is not even the page that you want to view. Yep, you guessed it there goes an additional hit to the server.

Add this modification to bypass the UserCP default page.
The savings are HUGE especially on a big-board site.

How does this help with usability?
  1. Private Messages are the most frequently used user option.
    • Moving this to the top will give members quicker access.
    • Displaying custom folders will also bypass some pages (clicks) and therefore decreases server resources.
  2. Collapsing/Expanding some of the options will provide members quicker access to what is important to them.
This modification has been reported working on earlier vb versions 3.5.4+.

Instructions:
  1. Install product via Product Manager.
  2. If you want to add UserCP Menu read the README file. This has to be done manually.
  3. Show your support click "Mark As Installed", nominate for MOTM, rate this modification, and/or donate.
History:

v 1.1.1-2 : Missing phrase
v 1.1.1 : Added SUBSCRIBE template replacements
v 1.1.0 : New 3.6.8 version released (w/ template hook)v 1.0.2 : Added missing template changes
v 1.0.1 : Added missing template changes

You just add them where you want them in the code and it should work without any problem.

Hi

I think I have a bug.

I use a fixed width of 768px for my forum.

The whole UserCP is fine but viewing a private message, the message window is much wider then it should be and brakes my design.

Any ideas how to fix this?

Otherwise this hack is great

Thank you in advance

StarBuG

ps: This problem occures on both of my forums with fixed width

User Control Panel link in menu broken after install

Hey there - after installing this - everything looked good. I just happen to be nosing around my site and found that for some reason the User Control Panel link under Menu in my header navigation bar is broken?!?! When you click on Menu and then scroll down to User Control Panel, a mini user control panel opens in the upper left corner of the browser window. Any idea how to fix this?

I've attached some screenshots for reference.

Thanks in advance.

I found the malefactor

It was the "resize large images hack".

Sorry for bothering you

Actually for me it would be the Header template due to the skin I'm using, but I knew that much. I just don't know what to look for? All I know is that everything worked before I installed this...

Thanks for the support... I'll just uninstall it.
