Current Staff Online Forum Sideblock and CMS Widget by BOP5
Mod Version: 0.99, by BirdOPrey5 (Moderator) BirdOPrey5 is offline
Developer Last Online: Jul 2015 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 4.2.x Rating: (17 votes - 4.88 average) Installs: 164
Released: 19 Jun 2012 Last Update: 30 Jun 2012 Downloads: 1084
Supported Uses Plugins Auto-Template Re-usable Code Translations Is in Beta Stage  

Brought to you by BirdOPrey5

New Version: 0.99 Beta
New in 0.99
  • Added Widget
  • Added Settings instead of manual configuration
  • Added phrases for "None" and "No staff currently online." text.
  • Made code more compatible with older VB Versions (should work in 4.1.x now)




This is my first attempt at a Sideblock and Widget. The purpose of this is to list all forum staff members online.

There are settings to choose which usergroups are considered staff groups and for other basic settings.

The product .xml file contains the necessary templates and phrases but you will need to manually install the sideblock code itself and/or manually create the widget.

Specific installation instructions are in the .txt file in the zip file but the overall process is:
  • Upload the Product XML File
  • Add code to additional.css template
  • Edit Settings in Admin CP -> Options to setup your options
  • Create Sideblock (if using Sideblock)
  • Create Widget (if using widget)
  • Add Widget to Layout(s) (if using widget)


Overall this is working well- it is Beta as it's my fist Sideblock and Widget. I know it works on VB 4.2.0 but it should work on earlier versions as well (code was revised in Beta 0.99 for greater compatibility.)

If you get an error at the top of the browser window when you enable the sideblock or widget you know your VB version is too old.

In addition to working with my Font Selection by Username mod it will also work withe my Sidebar Anywhere mod.

Does not work with "Everywhere Sidebar" mod but DOES work with MY "Sidebar Anywhere" mod.

Thanks for the Feedback on the version numbers guys, I knew it wouldn't work on older versions though honestly I am surprised there is an error even on 4.1.12. I will see if I can get access to a 4.1.12 board again, I ended up updating both my test sites to 4.2.0.

Yes I plan to make this into a widget as well, although it is re-usable code so if anyone wants to "beat me to it" they are encouraged to try.
