Ultimate Side Columns
By Kerry-Anne www.peterska2.co.uk

Welcome to Ultimate Side Columns 2.2 !

USC 2.2 has now been released!!!!

Introduction

Following the success of the left and right side column modifications, and building on their weaknesses, the Ultimate Side Columns system was born.

Ultimate Side Columns (USC) is your one stop shop for all your side columns needs. It is an easy to configure, all in one solution.

USC 2.0 was born through the evolution and bug fixing of USC 1.0 for vBulletin 3.6 and is for vBulletin 3.7.0 RC1 and later only. It is not supported with earlier versions and may not work with them.

Features

USC 2.0 is fully customizable, can use conditions and variables (not available in USC 1.0), has greater flexibility in where it can be omitted from (after requests received), and contains new functionality of both independently collapsible columns and user defined custom links to be displayed on a per user basis in the column location of the administrators choosing.

A maximum of 20 blocks spread over the two columns are available at this time. However, if more are required then an expansion pack will be provided. The blocks can be reordered and moved between the templates with ease through simple template edits.

USC 2.2 Change Log:
Fixed bug with profile.php?do=editattachments
Added All Pages options

USC 2.1 Change Log:
Fixed blank page caused by missing template in the XML
Added compatibility with 3.7.0 Stable/Gold
Manual Template Edit instructions added to package
Enhanced the display page choices to allow exact selection of the pages where USC is to be displayed
Added usergroup permissions in addition to the global options for viewing the left column, viewing the right column, and using the custom contents block.

USC 2.1 has additional files. You need to upload the files first BEFORE importing the product

Upgrading from USC 2.0
Upload the contents of the upload folder, except the admincp directory, then import the XML.

Go to vBOptions > USC Options and set the display pages using the new options
Go to Usergroups > Usergroup Manager and set the permissions for each usergroup as desired. By default no permissions are given to any usergroups.

Upgrading from USC 1.0

USC 2.0 has been rewritten from the ground up and therefore all the blocks have been moved from the settings into the templates. Therefore, a unique upgrade script has been provided which must be run before importing the new product. Importing the new product first will result in the loss of your existing USC contents.

The upgrade script is located in the admincp directory after uploading the USC files and is ran by pointing your browser to admincp/usc_upgrade.php

Full upgrade instructions are included in the upgrade readme file in the zip.

Installation Instructions

Download the zip, unzip it and upload the contents of the upload folder to your forum directory. Import the product, all done.

Full instructions are included in the install readme in the zip.

Support

This modification has limited support only and is therefore flagged as unsupported. Support will be given when possible although it is always preferable when users of USC support each other. This was very successful with USC 1.0 and therefore is continued with USC 2.0

If you have any other combinations of pages that you would like to see available for the column options, please post them in the support thread ensuring that you add the title "USC Page Combination Request" to your post, or use this as the first line of your post ensuring that it is in bold text. This is very specific as due to the limited nature of support and time, the support thread will only be quickly skimmed through and therefore requests may be missed if it is not clear what they are.


The screenshots attached to this post and the next one show a range of pages with a range of column combinations. They are not labeled but they are pretty self explanatory.

Enjoy USC 2.0.

Kerry-Anne

I had something like that and I added <tr> <td> to the top of the appropriate USC Template and
closed it off with </tr> </td> at the very bottom.

ACP - Styles and Templates - Choose the style you want to work with - Ultimate Side Columns Templates - Place <tr> <td> at the very top and </tr> </td> at the bottom of the appropriate USC Block.

Smile Hello

Hello,

I have installed this mod on a test site and it works perfectly......

But when I install it on my "LIVE" board it has (2) bugs....

(1) the side bars never show up.

(2) All of my custom vbulletin pages that have "Custom" headers blow up like a balloon...

I have narrowed the "ballooning" issue to the fact that I am using a "custom" header and that in return...... If I place "$header" in the page my ballooning issue on my custom pages goes away... Due to the fact that it is now properly following $stylevar[outertablewidth]...

But if I do this... My custom header is replaced by the standard...

Also... the collums are "Invisible"

Any Ideas?

P.S. / F.Y.I.
I granted usergroup permissions to all usergroups and the side collumns are still "invisable"?

Also... on test board the ultimate side collums templates show up in their own folder......
When I install on live board the templates are not in their own folder?

Talking Ok.....

Ok.....

Since my last post I have gotten the Side collums to appear......

"""""FYI.... To those of you using Dreamweaver.... For some reason Dreamweaver was not uploading the .Data files...""""""

Anyway.....

Now the side collumns are appearing but not quite in the right place....

If I choose both collumns "left and right" the right appears properly but I have (2) left collums.

If I choose just the right collumn everything is ok except if I choose the setting to place the right side collumn below the navbar.

If I select this option the the right column ends up on the left bottom near the "Style Selection box".......

Any Ideas?

Also........

I am still having issue with my custom templates with custom headers "Ballooning" and not recognizing the $stylevar[outertablewidth] setting wich is at 63%.....

I have traced the fact that It is doing this due to the fact that this code is missing in the template "$header".....

Any Ideas on a fix?

3.8.2

Interesting mod... could this be modified/updated with an option to only show the column (menu) in certain forums and add an option so it's contents (links) be editable in the admincp on it's edit forum page?

I'm trying to merge this old out-of-date html frame left menu http://www.lycansmovie.com/main-low.html into the forum so it will be quicker to access and update via the threads (instead of having to ftp the updates each time).

I'm running into the same problem. On the private message list page, the right side bar is shown at the bottom of the page on the left.
