Real Name in Postbit
Mod Version: 1.00, by Mike Gaidin (Contributor) Mike Gaidin is offline
Developer Last Online: Aug 2012 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

This modification is in the archives.
vB Version: 2.3.x Rating: (0 vote - 0 average) Installs: 12
Released: 25 May 2003 Last Update: Never Downloads: 8
Not Supported  

Tested and installed on vBulletin 2.3.0

Created for vBulletin v2.3.0, but should work in most versions of vBulletin.

ALL CREDIT AND CODING FOR THIS MODIFICATION GO TO BOOFO. I AM JUST RELEASING THIS WITH HIS PERMISSION.

The original request for this hack can be found here...

http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showt...threadid=53343


What it does is give a forum member the option to enter their real name into their profile options in the USER CP
and have it show up in the postbit if the information was entered. If no name is entered none of the real name info
will show up in the postbit.


Files to edit: (1) functions.php
Templates to edit: (1) postbit

Install time: 1 minute.

I know this is nothing major and most people probably already knew how to do this. Well, I didn't know and with Boofo's help I do now so I want to release this for those who want it and don't know how.

Thanks Boofo.

That was my inspiration, Erwin. I didn't see it anywhere and I liked the idea.

If you just create a profile field and stick it in the postbit it will still show Real Name: whether a person has a name or not. This was makes it so if a person does not enter their name the Real Name: part won't show in the postbit.

I made it so i could have it as a template instead... therefor making it easier to edit if i ever needed to.

Hope you dont mind me adding this...
*Note... you need to have installed the hack before adding this.

## in admin/functions.php

Find:

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

Change to:

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


Now create the template called postbit_realname and add the following:


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


I just think the above makes it easier to edit if you ever needed to. Enjoy.

I like this, but I also want it to show up in the members profile like here at vb.org. Is that a hack here?

If you do not add the template to the templatesused line, you will create another query doing it this way.

I'm curious, what would you ever need to edit with this? You only have "Name:" to deal with.

If you do that, you are adding 1 extra query to showthread. To save this query, you need to cache that template. Make sure you edit "showthread.php", find:


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


And change it to:


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