Enhanced Thread Preview
Mod Version: 1.2.1, by MarkFL (Coder) MarkFL is offline
Developer Last Online: Nov 2019 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 4.2.x Rating: (6 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 19
Released: 18 Jul 2016 Last Update: 25 Jul 2016 Downloads: 70
Not Supported Uses Plugins Translations  

Overview:

In certain areas of vBulletin 4.x, when you hover your mouse over a thread title, you see a tooltip that displays a truncated version of the first post content. This simple product allows you to designate areas in which the tooltip will also contain a truncated version of the last post.



The product settings allow you to enable/disable the product, set how guests are handled, and select the areas in which the product is active. When deciding how to handle guests, you may select for thread previews to be hidden in all areas whether they are selected as active or not, to hide them in the active areas only, to display the default preview or to allow guests to see the enhanced thread preview. I recommend not allowing guests to see the enhanced thread previews to reduce server load, as additional queries are required to get the last post content. Truncation of the last post follows the same setting affecting the default preview.

Updates:

Version 1.1:
  • Strip BB Codes from preview content.

Version 1.2:
  • Resolved fetch_array issue present for some.
  • Phrased the format of the new preview tooltip.

Version 1.2.1:
  • Ignore thread redirects.

Compatibility:

Tested and working on VB 4.2.x and may work on all 4.x versions of vBulletin.

Backup/Warning:

This product does not alter your database, however it is always good practice to make regular backups and you should make a backup before installing ANY new mod.

As always, products are USE AT YOUR OWN RISK. I will provide support and do my best to help but no absolute guarantee is offered.

  • Click "Import."

Okay, I will include that in the next update. I will also use phrasing for the format of the tooltip so you can make it whatever you want.

Look for this update within 24 hours.

I just ran several tests on my dev site with quotes of various lengths, and didn't have any issues.

Please try version 1.2 of this product, and let me know if the error you are experiencing still exists.

No, previewing a thread via the tooltip doesn't count as actually viewing the thread.

That was just an oversight and very easy to fix...I will upload an update soon.

Thanks Mark. Good mod, especially when used in conjunction with http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=318467 as that one does not hide BBcodes in thread previews.
