Hack Support

This hack is now discontinued - this means that while it will remain available for download and use, there will be no further updates, nor will support be provided as the thread is no longer monitored. But not to worry, you can now check out the new 3.8.x version of this hack which will work with v3.7.x, as well as with v3.6.12 (and maybe even earlier versions).

Please click Mark as Installed if you are using this hack.

vBulletin Version Compatibility

This hack can be used with both vBulletin v3.6.x and v3.7.x.

What Does This Hack Do?

Your own vBulletin Boss Key, is displayed in the postbit of each post, so you can quickly click yourself to the safety of legitimate url when the boss turns up, while you are at work.

I have created a custom button for this hack, you can use another button if you like, just remember to rename it panic.gif.

NOTE: Any Panic Button you see in a thread is tied to your profile, even if it is in someone else's postbit (to prove it, disable the Panic Button in the your UserCP)

This hack was created because of a requested here.

If your members report errors when clicking on the panic button, first thing to ensure is that they used the full url (including http://)when typing in the site their panic button will go to, ie (will work) and not like this - (will not work). The second thing to check for, is that the Panic Button - URL Jump box is not empty.

Installation Instructions

In attached .zip (includes instructions for postbit and postbit_legacy templates)
