Version 2.2.0

The new Activity Stream for VB 4.2.0 is very nice but it feels like it is missing something- and what it is missing is a sidebar. Ideally at some point VB will release a custom sidebar built just for the Activity Stream but until then this quick mod will let you use the built in forum sidebar on the Activity Stream.

As of version 2.0 besides just working on the Activity Stream the mod can now add a sidebar to ANY vBulletin page including forums, threads, groups, albums, who's online, forum leaders, and more. In fact you can easily add the sidebar even to custom pages from custom mods.

New Features
  • Now works on ANY vBulletin Page (except blogs which have their own sidebar)
  • Option to align sidebar with page content or top of page
  • Option to Disable Sidebar Collapse Option (By Usergroup in 2.1.0)
  • Collapsed sidebar state now "remembered" on different pages
  • Option to enable Sidebar by Usergroup
  • Option to disable Sidebar by Forum (if enabled for forums/threads)
  • Option to disable Sidebar in specific styles
  • Options to disable sidebars if mobile devices detected*

NOTE: To enable mobile device detection options you must install the Mobile Browser Detector mod.

Live Demo: Qapla.com Activity Stream

You can enable or disable the Sidebar Anywhere independently of the forum sidebar but they will both display the same content (blocks.)

NEW - If you need to have different blocks on different pages check out this add-on.

You must have at least 1 block setup and active for the sidebar to show.

Unlike most of my other mods this mod is enabled by default upon installation. Be default it is setup to show only on the Activity Stream and register.php pages.

I am aware there is already a mod out there "Everywhere Sidebar" by another coder. This is completely different code and I made this because my "Staff Online Sideblock" mod did not work on Sidebar Everywhere but it does work on this mod.

This mod requires at least VB 4.2.0 to work on the Activity Stream but should work on older VB 4.x.x versions on other pages.

The old version Zip file Sidebar for Activity Stream by BOP5 v11.zip works only on the Activity Stream.

PLEASE READ THE INSTRUCTIONS INCLUDED WITH THIS MOD- THEY ANSWER MOST OF THE QUESTIONS ABOUT HOW TO USE IT.

Did you try uninstalling / reinstalling the mod again?

If it doesn't work on the default style after the mod is reinstalled it can't be a template issue- the mod is made to work with the default templates so reverting them should never break it.

I have done it twice, but will try again.

Did notice, after a re-install, it remembered all my old settings.

Am running xcache if that means anything?

I don't know how xcache could effect it but if it "remembered" the settings it was never truly uninstalled.

You can PM me login info, I will take a look, and try to remove the product completely.

That was my mistake, works perfectly now.

Btw, thank you for implementing my suggestion you didn't seem to like the idea at first. But... this solves all issues

Hello everyone. I have a little problem:

It seems that the style of the tag cloud (bigger font if the tag is more used) is lost when the sidebar is shown in other place different from forum.php



Do anyone have experienced this and have solved it?

You can also spot the difference

here: http://www.tmas.es/foro/forum.php

and here: http://www.tmas.es/foro/otros-centro...13-cefaal.html

Thanks!

Make sure you downloaded: Sidebar Anywhere by BOP5 v220.zip

Forumdisplay will be a yes/no option in settings. Just choose YES.

Having a problem with the width when changing it in the style vars?

It works on the forumhome, but it does not work the width on any other page???

It stays at 250px, I would like to make it 200px on all pages not just the forumhome page?

EDIT

Additional problem:
It seems that turning off mobile devices is not functioning, members are reporting its still on using iphones, ipads, and androids?



Thank you for any help.
Mick

If it doesn't happen with the default sidebar it won't happen with this one.

For the mobile issue- did you install the mobile detection product? Here: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=292704

For the sidebar width it works on my forum (Here I set the width to a narrow 150 for an example on the activity stream)


So not sure why it wouldn't work on yours- possibly a custom style? Can you see if it works on the default style?

In Admin CP -> Settings -> Options -> Forum Sidebar and Block Options you can choose Left or Right. Note this only works for the newer version of this mod- "Sidebar Anywhere" not Sidebar for Activity Stream.

The width should obey the stylevar forum_sidebar_width.
