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."

hmmm... Is Rep being displayed or "Rep Power" ? Rep Power is just a number. Reputation itself is the green (or red) pips.

Yeah Reputation showing is a hold-over as this was originally designed for a classifieds forum. User reputation was important so you knew if the person selling was a respected member.

It should be easy enough to disable in the future release, or a simple manual edit of the postbit_simple_bop5_vb4 template can remove it.

I would like to see it with the option to rotate the order of locations rather then to disable if that were possible?

I have a question
I am using vBadvanced Links Directory and really need to apply this mod in showlink pages.
Is there anyway to do that?

Thanks

Yes. I will make an option for the first post to be regular postbit or simple postbit.

You mean make a random post in each thread a "full" postbit? I don't understand why that would be useful. Maybe I don't understand what you are asking.

I can add back the postbit hook the thanks mod uses and add an on/off switch for it. Only thing is there would be no way to limit it only to the thanks hack- it would take any hack that uses that hook.

Hmmm... I'd have to look into that- it seems like it would be possible but the Links Directory is a premium (paid) add-on so I don't have it for 4.x. Can you tell me the name of the template the Links Directory uses for comments? If you could give me a link to your link directory and turn on Template Names in HTML comments in your general settings I should be able to see what I need to see.

Great news
My forum is RTL / Arabic language so it is better to give you the template

This is the (ADV_LINKS_SHOWLINK) template
http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/attac...1&d=1334414274

The previous template will give us this page (example)

Thanks Joe

From this link- http://f.links4rank.com/dir/informat...est-linux-h-2/ - it looks like it's already using the simple postbit?

Can you turn on Template Names in HTML comments so I can see/confirm?
Admin CP -> Settings -> Options -> General Settings?
