Introduction:

I found Zero Tolerence's Welcome Panel's template dull, and it had a lot of mistakes on my computer, and it shows up on a lot of the sites I visit that have it. It annoyed me so I threw together my own Template for his hack. This is it. I've called it Welcome Panel Template Rewrite, as that's exactly what it is. It's about to go into it's next version, so be on the look out.

This hack will not work if...

You must install this hack (Zero Tolerence's Welcome Panel) before my hack will work. It requires the plugins. Just don't follow the installation instructions for the template.

Installing:

All you have to do to install this hack is upload the .xml file that's attached to your Products Manager and it'll install the template and phrases.

Note: Be sure to chose the correct .xml! It is reccomended that you chose either v1.3 (location within zip: back releases/v1.x) or v2.1.1's XML file (main folder)!

v1.3 Features:
  • Displays New Posts
  • Avatar Display
  • Forum Stats
  • Fully Phrased
  • New Posts Link
  • Edit Profile Link
  • Edit Avatar Link
  • Most Active in.
  • Percent of Forum Posts
  • Posts Per Day
  • Number of Posts
  • Forum Stats
  • Collapsable

More Features will be added in v2.0. You can gain IMAGE links by PMing me.

Is there a way to have it above the navbar like this panel : http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=83205 ?

It would be wonderful if it's possible :nervous:

Thank you :)

DO you want it to REPLACE your navbar section? I'd have to work on it, so give me some time. ;)
