Version 1.13 - Added option to disable by styleid. (You should disable for all mobile styles)
Version 1.12 - Added a bunch new options and bug fix
Version 1.0 - Initial Release

This mod offers a simple postbit option that admins can specify to replace the standard postbit or postbit_legacy template on specific forums or in specific threads.

The simpler more minimalistic postbit is ideal when you want users focusing only on the post content and not avatars, signatures, or other irrelevant details.

The admin can actually turn the display of virtually every "extra" on or off via the mod options.

This mod is designed for VB 4.1.10 or higher. Versions below 4.1.10 will require a manual FILE EDIT.
(Details in the instructions.)


Live Demo: Simple Postbit Demo at Qapla.com

I would see use for this in a "Classifieds" forum, or perhaps a forum open to guests.

Really you could modify the new template postbit_simple_bop5_vb4 and put anything in it. For example if you replace this template with the code form postbit_legacy then you could use this mod to show the regular postbit template on most forums but choose to show postbit_legacy in specific forums or threads. It can really be thought more of as a "General Postbit Override" mod, it just happens to come pre-configured as a "Simple Postbit."

OK,

New version 1.11... This should fix the fatal error on articles (I saw it too) and hopefully work on links directory. I say should because I'm guessing because I don't have the links directory installed.

OK Try 1.12- just updated.

This only affects people who are trying to use this with the links directory so not sending out a formal upgrade notice.

Just upgraded to 1.12. There is no error for viewing article any more. Please instruct me if I want to show country flag where I should put the template code?
Thanks,

There are several hooks "under the avatar." I will need a screenshot or link to see exactly which hook it might be.

Basically you will need to look in your regular postbit_legacy template

Search for "{vb:raw template_hook.postbit_userinfo"

There will be 3 different instances... You need to figure out which one your flag display uses and copy the whole hook code (like: {vb:raw template_hook.postbit_userinfo_right} ) to the corresponding location in the postbit_simple_bop5_vb4 template.

I know this sounds annoying but I purposely left the hooks out so the postbit remains "Simple."

Excellent, installed and working perfectly.

I have enabled it in all my reference sections where signatures etc are of no use.

Thank you for your instruction. I copy and paste in postit_simple_bop5_vb4 template the country flag template code after the rank condition:

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

Now the Country Flag showed but there is no option to turn it on or off.
Thanks,

I have Helpful Answers installed by Ted S, basically a thumbs up or down to click on in every post.

It is now not appearing in the sections where I have activated Simple Postbit.

I have ticked the box that says Use Postbit Control Hook but the thums up still won't display.

Is there anything I can do about that?

It would depend on how that mod works. Do you have link to it so I can see what it needs?

That mod looks like it needs 3 postbit hooks-
postbit_start
postbit_messagearea_start
postbit_end

For start and end just paste this at the very top (and the other at the very bottom) of the postbit_simple_bop5_vb4 template.


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


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

Then paste this code

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

right above this line in the existing template:

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

I guess I will add these hooks back in in the next update with on/off options for each.
