Custom User Style 1.02


Allow your users to create their own custom style to use on the forum using CSS, which can be generated using a built in generator.

This is just something I whipped up in my spare time just playing around... :P If you can use it, then, great... I will probably be adding more to it as time goes on, such as usergroup permissions, and maybe I'll try and make it a bit more user friendly, but it's as it stands now.

Oh, and I will definitely cache the template... once I figure out how...



1 product upload
1 template edit (there may be the need to do more customization if you have custom CSS)
1 new profile field


1. Product Upload:

ACP > Product Manager > Add/Import Product > Upload product-userstyle.xml with over write set to 'Yes.'

2. Create User Options:

ACP > User Profile Fields > Add New User Profile Field

Add a Multiple-Line Text Box...

Title: Custom Style

Description: Design your own color scheme using CSS, use the <a href="misc.php?do=gencss" rel="nofollow">CSS Generator</a> to aid you in creating this code.

Increase the max length to your liking, you may want it to be longer for them to be able to include background images.

I put 75 for the field length, and 20 for the text area heighth.

Field Required --> NO
Field Edited by User --> YES
Private Field --> YES
Field Searchable on Members List --> NO

Display Page: 'Options:Other'

3. Template Edit:

In headinclude...


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

Replace with:

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

*** Replace 'fieldxx' with the field id of the custom profile field we created.

Now have your users, if they wish, go to edit options in user cp, and use the CSS generator to customize thier style. The default that is in the text boxes is default vBulletin.

*** You may have to edit the code if you require custom CSS definitions.

update history:
*1.0.2 - fixed a phrase

Thank you and Enjoy.

Changes what exactly?
Eg. when they click generate, it will give them a preview of what it will look like then they can click.. Save this style

Then it auto saves it so thats what there style looks like, meaning they don't see the code it generates and they don't have a box to enter this code
My software never has bugs. It just develops random features.

I am bumping this just to see if you are still working on the project for any new features or updates? It really was a brilliant idea!

Installed and working on 3.6.8 for me. No issues at all either.

I'd love a preview and usergroup permission setting for this modification. Excellent work overall though!
