Current Staff Online Forum Sideblock and CMS Widget by BOP5
Mod Version: 0.99, by BirdOPrey5 (IB Staff) BirdOPrey5 is offline
Developer Last Online: Jun 2019 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 4.2.x Rating: (21 votes - 4.71 average) Installs: 190
Released: 19 Jun 2012 Last Update: 30 Jun 2012 Downloads: 1346
Not Supported Uses Plugins Auto-Template Re-usable Code Translations Is in Beta Stage  

Brought to you by BirdOPrey5
www.Qapla.com


New Version: 0.99 Beta
New in 0.99
  • Added Widget
  • Added Settings instead of manual configuration
  • Added phrases for "None" and "No staff currently online." text.
  • Made code more compatible with older VB Versions (should work in 4.1.x now)




This is my first attempt at a Sideblock and Widget. The purpose of this is to list all forum staff members online.

There are settings to choose which usergroups are considered staff groups and for other basic settings.

The product .xml file contains the necessary templates and phrases but you will need to manually install the sideblock code itself and/or manually create the widget.

Specific installation instructions are in the .txt file in the zip file but the overall process is:
  • Upload the Product XML File
  • Add code to additional.css template
  • Edit Settings in Admin CP -> Options to setup your options
  • Create Sideblock (if using Sideblock)
  • Create Widget (if using widget)
  • Add Widget to Layout(s) (if using widget)


Overall this is working well- it is Beta as it's my fist Sideblock and Widget. I know it works on VB 4.2.0 but it should work on earlier versions as well (code was revised in Beta 0.99 for greater compatibility.)

If you get an error at the top of the browser window when you enable the sideblock or widget you know your VB version is too old.

In addition to working with my Font Selection by Username mod it will also work withe my Sidebar Anywhere mod.

Does not work with "Everywhere Sidebar" mod but DOES work with MY "Sidebar Anywhere" mod.

I know, I haven't given up- just been fighting with kidney stone pain to try and concentrate on coding lately... not as productive as usual.

VB 4.2.1 isn't out yet, do you have an alpha version?

In that case I'd say follow the instructions again, carefully- it's working for many people on 4.2.0 I don't see why it wouldn't on yours.

Very nice mod, I did install but the code needs a bit of validating which led me to un-install, will install when the code is tidied up, I know it's only BETA so not expecting clean code as yet.

Very good job though, well done.

Do you mean the HTML isn't passing validation?

Yes, not a big deal I know as it is in Beta stage.

I felt kind of bad for just doing the "it doesn't validate cry", so here's the validated code for the template.

Good news is I am making good progress on the widget now too.. going to package them together and let you enable the sideblock or widget independently.



Should be ready something this weekend.
