Introduction:

When I first installed Zero Tolerence's Welcome Panel, I found that it had a lot of mistakes on my computer. I set out to make a new template for the hack - and I succeeded. This template is my rewrite of Zero Tolerence's hack.

This hack has one requirement:

Installation

Installation is a breeze! Follow these simple steps:
  1. Upload Files into folders.
  2. Install Welcome Panel Product

Yes, it's that simple.

I figured it out there is a conflict with this MOD and http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=122995
So you need to choose one or the other.

Not sure why but I disabled that mod and now yours works perfect.

Thanks for that. Hopefully this can be resolved sooner or later.

This is a great hack, thanks King Kovifor!

Just one question, I have a private archive where I moved some heated topics that turned nasty earlier this year as I didn't want new members to be exposed to the nastiness. Some of my members are now reporting that they are shown as being most active in "Archives". How do I exclude the Archive forum from being included in the stats? No one can see this forum except me as sole Admin on my board.

No, not that I know of. Since I didn't write that part of code, I couldn't help you out there...

I'm getting the same error as trax:

Invalid SQL:
SELECT COUNT(*) AS newposts FROM post WHERE dateline >= 17:30, 17th October 2007 AND visible = 1;

MySQL Error : You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near ':30, 17th October 2007 AND visible = 1' at line 1
Error Number : 1064

I believe I supplied a patch for that, but I will go back and look for you.

I found the patch and the mod is working except that:

There have been 14,389 posts and 2,420 threads since your last visit at 01:00, 01-01-1970. The time is currently 22:18, on 07-12-2007. You have 1 unread Private Messages.

Obviously, my last visit was today 071207. How do I fix this? Thanks

OK. It seems to be something else inside the code that isn't using the right setting. Mind posting the Plugin for Welcome Panel Template Main... Sorry I didn't find it for you. We went out and didn't get back till about 10 minutes ago...

I thought the edit meant you figured it out sorry. Depending on what style you have (if you didn't change it from default) it would be forumhome_welcomepanel_def, and I believe you must set that variable in the "Main" plugin.
