vBStatus - Facebook Style Status Display (v4)

This modification is in the archives.
vB Version: 3.7.x Rating: (53 votes - 4.51 average) Installs: 731
Released: 02 Jun 2008 Last Update: 13 Jul 2008 Downloads: 4250
Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Template Edits Additional Files  





This modification thread will not be upgraded, since it is possible that some users may prefer v4.

Compatible with 3.6.x and 3.5.x
vBStatus allows your users to update their status to tell other members what they are doing/thinking at any given time. A user's status is displayed under their names in their postbit, in their User Profile, and anywhere else you choose!

User's can edit their status quickly and easily via AJAX.

Administrative options include:
  • Banning a list of usergroups from using the hack.
  • Allowing a list of usergroups to change other users' status.
  • Limit the # of characters used in Status Messages
  • Word wrap status messages to prevent broken templates.
  • Turning the hack on/off.
  • Option of In-Line editting or a popup. (Defined in the admincp)
  • Default status for users with a blank status. (Defined in the admincp)
  • Status prefix to append an admin-customizable forum standard. (Attilitus is doing something)
There are 3 template edits for this hack. The installation readme file will guide you through the entire process.
Update 2.0:
Please reinstall the product xml file, and re-edit your templates following the new instructions in the readme file. This is to correct a small cosmetic bug that displays non-functional links to guests and non-admins.

Update 3.0:
A number of bugs were fixed, and a few new admin options were added. Please uninstall the previous product and reinstall this one. Please re-edit your templates and reupload all files. Sorry for the inconvenience (but at least we are getting this handled in the first 12 hours of release.)

Update 4.0:
This is a fairly comprehensive update. You must remove all previous template edits and add the new template code. You must also "Allow Overwrite" when importing the new product. The DB structure hasn't changed.

New features include:
  • In-Line Editting (This is on by default, but you can return to the previous popup style by changing an option in the admincp)
  • Default Status: If a user doesn't have any status message it will be set to a default status which you can define in the admincp
  • Visual improvements: Various small visual improvements were made, including a change in the location of the small "edit" link.
Update 4.01
I added status prefixes. If your updating from version 4 just reimport the product (with overwrite set to yes), and reupload all the files. No template edits necessary when upgrading from v4 to v4.01. (And I'm not going to change the file version because this update came so quickly on the heals of v4.)

This has been working perfectly for ages, but suddenly today we're getting an error when editing status:

Unable to add cookies, header already sent.
File: /www/enworld.org/production/htdocs/forum/vbstatus/vbstatus_ajax.php
Line: 1


Any ideas?

Is this error persistent, and occurring for all members?

If so, did you make any recent changes to either your vBStatus settings or to the directory structure of your forum?

Nope, no changes - it seems to have happened spontaneously.

Asking my members, it's not all of them. Some are experiencing no issues.

More relevant info - it seems the issues are all with IE users.

When I've run into problems like this, the host has changed something on the server. Have they upgraded the versions of php or mysql?

Morrus,

I have a few guesses as to what the problem might be, but since I am not as intimately familiar with this codebase as I was two years ago I am not confident enough to share them.

I suggest that you install v5 of this modification. If you are waiting for the last feature to be added to v5 (the ability to moderate status messages), then I suggest you wait until that is added and then upgrade.

It is very probable that upgrading will fix all your problems, as the v5 code is more robust. Also, if it turns out that you still encounter problems with v5, then I will be able to very quickly diagnose your problem.

~Tim

I've installed it, but when I implement the last part of the installation, I can't use the Quick Reply, I can't even click into it to type a message.
