Personalized/Gag Threads, Posts, and Signatures
As requested in this thread

Demo here (Must register or login with test/test)
(Note: Please don't change the test account. It's annoying.)

What this addon does:

This addon allows your users to use replacement variables in their posts and signatures which will substitute the viewer's information for the variable, in order to make the viewer of the post think that it's addressed specifically to them.

For example, you are viewing a post/signature and your username is Joe.
If the post/signature (or the post title) contains the text {username}, it will be replaced with Joe, but only for the viewer.

The only problem I have run into is with unregistered members - their info will not display correctly, if at all. I'm not quite sure how to go about remedying this problem just yet. I'm open to suggestions.

This addon will operate on who's online, the navbar, search results, forum display, thread listing, profiles, and single posts. If you are using a third-party addon like vBAdvanced CMPS, the variables will not parse correctly in those addons. Provided that this addon is successful, I may release updated versions to include major products like vBAdvanced and Top X Stats.

I have provided an AdminCP vBulletin Options group to edit which variables can be parsed (see attachment).

Please note that this is only a test. In no way is this hack fully polished and completed.

Here are testing screenshots of the variables, and the result.






You may use this addon however you see fit. If you do decide to use it, you have permission to modify it in any way you see fit - just be sure to provide credit where it's due.

If you have any suggestions, questions, comments, etc, please post them here.

Is there anyway you can make it so when someone quotes a post with 1 of them in, the person sees they username or whatever they see? Instead of the code?

EDIT; and get it to work in signatures.

This is only for 3.6.0. I've not tested it with 3.5.4, nor did I develop it on 3.5.4.
However, you can try going to vBulletin Options and selecting Gag Threads & Posts in the dropdown. If it's not there, you should upgrade to 3.6.0 in order for this mod to work.

The variables are parsed on-the-fly, so there's really no way to view what another user is seeing. As for signatures, that's a little different, but I'll look into it.

I just used this hack to post a thread saying I've gotten several PM's asking to ban {username} and I started a poll about it. This is going to be fun.

Well, if Kaezul is willing, I can port this down to 3.5.4. I already have it working and a ready copy of an XML file.

Feel free to use it as you please. You may release a 3.5.4 version, just as long as you link to this hack page.

Yes, I can do that. I'll put it in the next update.

I'm not sure I understand what you're saying here.. This addon doesn't touch referrals at all.
