New Social Groups page layout
Mod Version: 1.3.2, by Lynne (Coder/Designer) Lynne is offline
Developer Last Online: Aug 2019 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 3.8.0 Rating: (26 votes - 4.73 average) Installs: 205
Released: 05 Feb 2009 Last Update: 07 Mar 2009 Downloads: 1033
Not Supported Template Edits Re-usable Code Translations  

A template edit for the Social Groups page to look more like the Profile page.

version 1.2 - 2009-02-07
Fixed some issues with the conditions being inside the div tags instead of outside. Searching discussions should now give you a full size table listing instead of the 'short' table. (And yeah, I skipped version 1.1 just cuz I felt like it!)

version 1.3 - 2009-02-12
Added View Pictures and Add Pictures at bottom of Pictures Box (thanks Theater!) and fixed issue with centering pictures in Social Groups causing pictures to display vertically in the Group Pictures page.

version 1.3.1 - 2009-02-12
Fixed a condition around an end div tag.

version 1.3.2 - 2009-03-07
Fixed a condition around the Add Pictures link.

1. Open the socialgroups_css template and FIND the following lines at the end:


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

Add the following lines ABOVE those lines:



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

Suggested change to this CSS if you use vBSEO is in the text file and in this post. It was suggested by Vitaly, however since I don't use vBSEO, I have no comment regarding it.


2. REPLACE your socialgroups_group template with the following:


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

Please click INSTALL if you find this useful.

Because it wouldn't fit in the first post....

3. OPTIONAL: If you want the pictures to show up centered in the right side bar, then FIND the following line in socialgroups_picturebit:


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

CHANGE to:


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

Just what I was looking for. Now all I need is to get a better postbit for the discussions area and I will be happy (Not legacy, looking to match standard postbit)

I dropped the CSS in the additional definitions area of my style and it seems to work. Any problems with keeping it there?

I don't think it's a problem unless it conflicts with the css used on the profile page. I used the same classes and definitions from the profile page, but if you modify them on the profile page, you could end up inheriting the definitions you entered in the additional definitions area.

OK, I think I had my conditions inside the divs instead of outside the divs. I played around with it and think I have it working correctly. I've attached the new version to the first post.

Thanks for the input! I'm a terrible tester - it worked fine for me and my limited way of using it.

You mean group.php? What's wrong with that page? It has the same sort of flow as member.php and group.php?groupid=x (this template edit I did).

Bunny! little... blobby monster bids you greetings...

A couple of things I noticed today...

1 - This isn't regarding your code because it happens when defaulted. Is it strange that registered members who are not members of a particular group themselves, are able to view the first 5 or so images, but when they go to click them it says they have to join the social group?

Dunno, just thought I'd ask... ^^^

2 - There is no View Pictures link when you are a member of the Social Group. I added the link and swapped the Add Picture phrase so it fits better.

Look for in socialgroups_group template:


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.

Result if you're a member of the social group:





Also, if you use the socialgroups_picturebit optional template modification to this, it will make all the images single column and vertical even on the View Pictures page where you see them all. I just reverted mine and live with the non-centered part.

Cheers,

  • /group.php does not show latest group threads.
  • Categories on /group.php seem quite chaotic, because they display in the same random way with various font size as tags on tags.php. An alphabetical listing order would be nice.
  • /group.php?do=categorylist does not show links for staff to delete or edit a group from the main groups overview.
  • /group.php?do=categorylist does not show the last post in a group. Similar to how it works for forums.
  • /group.php?do=categorylist does not show latest threads in that category.
  • Groups on /group.php are listed by icon. Rows, like on /group.php?do=categorylist show a much better overview. IMHO this should be on the main group page.
  • I find the location for the group search, out of place. IMHO it belongs in its own block.
  • /group.php does not show popular groups or active groups.

1 - That is a strange way to do it. They can see the thumbnails, but not the full image.

2 - Good catch! I guess I missed that when changing those boxes around. Do you mind if I put that change in the next revision?

3 - Try this for the line in socialgroups_picturebit. Find:

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.
