Personal Notepad
Mod Version: 3.1, by antialiasis (Coder) antialiasis is offline
Developer Last Online: Nov 2013 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 3.6.7 Rating: (16 votes - 4.81 average) Installs: 124
Released: 03 Nov 2007 Last Update: 05 Nov 2007 Downloads: 484
Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Auto-Template Translations  

This is a port of my previous Personal Notepad hack for vBulletin 3.5, with some added features and modifications that had been requested. It now makes use of template hooks and is placed in a more convenient location for users.

This hack will add a personal notepad for your members - a feature you may know from for example Invision Power Board. For short, members will be able to edit the content of their own notepad as they want, storing in it whatever they might feel like.

1 automatic template edit
1 product to install


FEATURES

- A notepad in members' main user CP area where they can type in whatever notes they may want to take down and save them
- Notepad can be resized
- Javascript for allowing users to see when they have exceeded the character limit
- Admin CP options (turn on/off, maximum input length, liquid/fixed width, width of fixed-width notepad, usergroups allowed to use notepad)
- No manual template edits
- Fully phrased for easy translation


INSTALLATION

1. Import product-personal_notepad.xml through the Admin CP.
2. Edit the Personal Notepad options in the vBulletin options if desired. (It is automatically turned on upon installation, so if you want to start using it right away without worrying about the options, you can.)
3. There is no 3. You're done. Go inform your members of the addition.


VERSION HISTORY

3.1: Saved space in liquid-width notepad by putting character counter and textbox size changers in the same line, phrased some stuff that was forgotten and added usergroup limitations in the admin options.
3.0: Tweaks for fitting better with the look of vBulletin, cached template, Javascript counter for character limit, made notepad collapsible, added version history.
2.0: Ported to 3.6, added resizing function and admin CP options.
1.0: Initial release.

Oh, yeah, forgot screenshots. I always forget something.

Did you already install the hack that Shazz linked to or something like that? If so, you need to uninstall it first.

You've done a good job on this mod. Here's my personal wish list, if you're going to keep developing.

1. Left-align the title by default, so it matches the rest of the User CP, if someone wants it centered, they can edit the template.
2. Use the "raised" panel around the textarea, with the "save" button below the panel, so it better matches the User CP.
3. With the fluid width setting, make the textarea 95% wide instead of 100%, to give a bit of a margin on the sides.
4. At the bottom (beside the increase/decrease size links-- so it doesn't take more space), tell the user the max # of characters allowed in the notepad.
5. Add an onchange javascript handler to the textarea, and show the user how many characters are in the textarea, while they're typing. You can also stop accepting input when the limit is reached. Drop me a PM if you want the JS code for this.
6. Make the whole "personal notepad" block collapsible. See below.
7. Cache the template. Add $globaltemplates[] = 'personal_notepad'; to a plugin on the cache_templates hook.

That's all for now And thanks again for your work.


Make a collapsible box:

Whoa! I'm always a big fan of those notepad hacks. Thanks for your release! It's much better than the other released ones.

By the way, you sure this is gonna work just fine on v3.6.8?
