Developer Last Online: Jun 2019 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 4.x.x Rating: (7 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 44
Released: 12 Oct 2011 Last Update: 15 Jul 2013 Downloads: 247
Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Auto-Template Translations  

Version 1.0 - Initial Release
Version 1.1 - Bugfix for vB 4.1.4 and above
Version 1.7.7 - Critical Security Update
Version 1.8.0 - Added post count setting / Added existing Markup setting

Live Demo: Qapla.com Forums Demo (Gold Version).

The purpose of this mod is to let users pick a custom font (either from a list you specify or optionally, a custom font they choose) to show up wherever username markup is allowed. (The postbit, profiles, who's online, blogs, CMS, etc...)

This is the free version, you can let users choose a font.

The GOLD version allows users to to choose a font, a font size, and/or a font color- each permission with independent usergroup control.
Gold version available at: Qapla.com Forums - Username Color, Size, & Font Selection.

Both versions include a "Live Preview" option allowing users to instantly see the effect of their changes before saving.

Both versions automatically add the options in Settings -> General Settings page, at the bottom, for users with permission.

In both versions all options font (and color/ size in gold) are independently controllable by usergroup permissions, so for example you could let registered users pick a font, mods pick a font AND color, and VIP users pick a font, color, and size.

You can add or remove available fonts from the list in Admin CP.

In the Gold version you can add/remove available colors and you can set a range of allowable font sizes.

See Screenshots for more details.
Screenshots are of free version only. See the GOLD thread, above, for screenshots of GOLD version.

Anyone running VB 4.1.4 to 4.1.8 please see the bug notice in the next post.

OK, very sorry about this but it looks like a bug was introduced in VB 4.1.4 where they accidentally re-used the same variable for new query causing this database error.

Currently affected versions are VB 4.1.4 - 4.1.7 and even though it's not out yet, 4.1.8 will probably have it too.

To fix the problem you will have to manually edit your file: online.php

Find the code (around line 277- may vary by version):


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

and delete the line $hook_query_fields so you make it:


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

And save and upload the fixed file. (Save a backup of the original of course.)

This will fix the database error on who's online.

I realize it is a pain to do a manual file edit so I release an update soon that will give you the option to disable display on who's online so you don't have to worry about the file edit.

Just to reiterate- VB versions below 4.1.4 are not affected by this bug.

If you want the mod to work on "Who's Online" you will need to edit the file. That will not go away until vBulletin fixes the bug in the future version.

OR you can just install the mod and leave the option to use it on "Who's Online" off and the mod will work everywhere else without issue, but it won't show the custom usernames on Who's Online.

It's still there if you disable this mod- but this mod is overriding it.

You can add as many fonts you want from the Mod Settings, but if users dont have the fonts installed in their PC is useless to have them listed unless you force them to install the custom fonts

To expand a bit on what FReeSTER said- Available fonts aren't stored by this mod or on your server. You literally just add or remove the Names of fonts from the list. The included list is basically the same as the standard vBulletin font list which are very common fonts.

If the person viewing your site had "Arial Black" installed, and the font chosen is "Arial Black" then the user will see the font in "Arial Black." If they don't have Arial Black installed they will see a default font instead.

You do not need to download any fonts.

You can use Google Web Font to get more fonts but user don't have to install any font on there computers. I tested and it works fine .
But Using many font styles can slow down your webpage, so only select the font styles that you actually need on your webpage.

**Template issue at General Settings
Edit modifyoptions_bop5usernamefont (Modify User Option Templates > modifyoptions_bop5usernamefont) and then delete </div> at the top of the template will fix it.
