see the extras directory in the release zip - patch-forumhome-newlinks should do the job

Andrew,

Is there a quick and easy way to just turn off the ability to Rate?

We have one download area on our site that they have to comment before they download. We don't care about the rating (and it's actually causing more headache then good), so I would like to just be able to remove the ability to rate all together and just have the ability to comment. I noticed that the only way you can comment is to rate first (the submit button is grayed out until then).

Is there a way to vocaltag the audio? I have a music forum with producers & engineers and it'll just be too easy to just record the audio from the media player.

I've no idea - can you point at somewhere which explains vocaltags? A google search took me to an Israeli company that works on animal health.

Hi AndrewD !

Many thanks for your help !

The search patch:
We have 2 forums, one test forum (v3.6.8 Patch Level 2) and our 'real' forum (v3.6.5). The search patch only work on the test forum, not on the real one. Do we have to update our version of the real forum ? Is there an other reason, why this wouldn't work ? How can I narrow down that ?

Thanks again,
Christian

I only wrote this patch recently. It uses the global_setup_complete hook in vbulletin and works the same way as the plugin that the vbulletin people use themselves for their blog software. I've no idea whether that hook was already available in vbulletin 3.6.5, or if the functions in that version of vbulletin are compatible.

Is there a way to hide categories based off usergroup (without creating a special forum).
This plugin blocks based off usergroup: blockaccess-byusergroup-plugin.xml
Would it be hard to make a similar plugin: hideaccess-byusergroup-plugin.xml
I may end up with many categories all set with special usergroup permissions, and hiding the categories would eliminate confusion.
Many thanks!
Riki

I wish that I had not used forum-based permissions inside LDM when I started with this hack (now 4 years ago!). I've gradually been adding LDM-based permissions, while trying to keep everything clean and consistent.

The LDM permission *can_view_category* is added in version 2.2.9, and will allow you to make individual categories/category trees visible or invisible to selected usergroups without having to use forum-based permissions.

In 2.2.8, you still have to use forum-based permissions.

wow, 4 years! That must be why it is so powerful, this is by far my favorite hack! Is 2.2.9 download-able anywhere, or is it still wip? I assume it is still wip, I will remain patient

Thanks again!

Thanks.

2.2.9 is available on the vb37 forum http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=166094 - there are in fact two versions there plus a patch to make 2.2.8 work with vb3.7. alpha 3 is the latest, and it works fine on both vb3.6 and 3.7 although there are two or three bugs (nothing fatal) which I have since found.

just wanted to post that I'm running 2.2.8 on VB 3.6.8 and works wonderful. I just peformed and upgrade to 2.2.8 from 2.2.7 flawlessly. We also used the VBA add on for our home page and that as well had no problems at all with the upgrading

I do, however have one question... how do I change the "layout" of the forum post. I'd like the image to come after the text that is placed in the initial post.

You are referring to the 'autothread' creation, where LDM entries are announced in a forum? The structure of these is defined in the VB phrases ldm_thread_create_title and ldm_thread_create_body. The code that actually constructs the announcement is function ldm_announce_in_forum() in the file includes/local_links_foruminterface.php.

Let me know if this is not what you meant.

Yep, you got it - that was exactly it!

One more question... how do I change how the first page of the downloads appear (for example show the thumbnail previews instead of just the category listing)?
