Integrating Living Avatars with vBulletin
Mod Version: 1.01, by PGAmerica (Member) PGAmerica is offline
Developer Last Online: Apr 2015 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

This modification is in the archives.
vB Version: 3.7.5 Rating: (2 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 30
Released: 21 Jun 2008 Last Update: 21 Jun 2008 Downloads: 324
Not Supported Template Edits Code Changes Additional Files  

For those of you who have installed the Living Avatars mod and have faced the problems I have this tutorial is for you. I have found that although LA works with vBulletin, v1.1x it makes no effort at all to use a point system other than its own (resolved in v2.x) or match the look and feel of your forums. This tutorial will will make the Living Avatars (v1.1x and 2.x) mod fit within the look and feel of your forums and in step 1, you will find how to make LA work with vbCredits.

This is not so much a modification or hack as it is a tutorial.

Requirements:
The Living Avatar mod (found at www.livingavatars.com) (Works with v1.1.x and 2.xx)
1 file edit
2 file uploads
1 template edit

Credits: The Living Avatars mod can be found at www.livingavatars.com and is free for all. I used the
instructions by Gary King entitled "How to create your own vBulletin-powered page!" alongside a
script at the Dynamic Drive site to make this work. Thanks goes to Digital Jedi for sending me the links for this.
------------------------------
NOTES:
This document assumes that you have installed the "Living Avatars" mod. If you have not, please go to www.livingavatars.com, download it and get it running on your site. Once that is done, go to Step 1 in this document.

Note: If you are installing v2.x of Living Avatars, skip step 1 of these instructions

Demo - You will need an account to see it. If you don't want to register, just look at the screencap attached to this post.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
Step 1: Go to this post at www.living avatars.com and follow the instructions to merge LA with the vbCredits mod.

Step 2:
Make a new template named "LivingAvatars" and put the contents of the
"LivingAvatars-template.txt" file in it.

Step 3: Edit the included "cpnav_livingavatars.xml" file to refer to your forum
directory. Currently, it is set to "/forums/".

Step 4: Upload the "LivingAvatars_vb.php" file to your forum root folder.

Step 5: Upload the "cpnav_livingavatars.xml" file to your "/forum root/includes/xml" folder.

Step 6: Modify the "modifyavatar" template
Look for 2 references to

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

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

That's it

Note: The Living Avatars mod can be found at livingavatars.com or in this post at vbulletin.org. Thanks goes to Ideal Web Tech for pointing this out.

Note: This works with vBulletin 3.8 as well.

Installed and Marked! I think Ziad has stopped giving support for this mod and stopped the development since there are no glitches/bugs with it. I really hope he comes back to add new features

BTW for everybody who wants the mod but cant get it because the registration is disabled the mod has been maintained on here as well as the authors site.

http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=146200

That will get you the exact same version you will get from their site.

Enjoy
