Sorry, there was an error in the instructions.

In your FORUMHOME template

FIND

$sidecolumn

REPLACE WITH

$forumhome_sidecolumn_right

hello :) works great! Thank you :)

How can I make it wider? like forums should be around 80% and this should be about 20%?

peterska2
22 Jul 2006, 02:32
You can adjust the width by changing the 160px in this section of the code to your requirements

<!-- peterska2 side column -->
</td>
<td width="10px"></td>
<td valign="top" width="160px">

One more small teeny weeny question. I copied the "What's going on" code section from FORUMHOME and pasted it in the side column but it doesn't show any of the dynamic areas like usernames. Is there something simple that can be added so that it could be passed those values? :)

thenetbox
28 Jul 2006, 04:10
one more question. Do you know if it is possible to easily add latest threads, birthdays and who's online on to the side bar? thanks

sweet!

will install asap, thanks!

Ooopsie!

:( 3.5.4 here...

Nevermind.. Hacked it to 3.5.4 :) (basically entered the template and plugins from the XML manually)

Also put it on most pages (forumdisplay, inferno, showthred, forumhome)

I guess if your not running 3.6 you could do this:

Templates to edit: FORUMHOME (2 edits)

Edit One

FIND

<thead>
<if condition="$show['guest']">
<!-- guest welcome message -->

ABOVE ADD

<!-- peterska2 side column -->
<table border="0" width="100%" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" align="center">
<tr>
<td>
<table class="tborder" cellpadding="$stylevar[cellpadding]" cellspacing="$stylevar[cellspacing]" border="0" width="100%" align="center">
<!-- / peterska2 side column -->


Edit Two

FIND

$footer

ABOVE ADD

<!-- peterska2 side column -->
</td>
<td width="10px"></td>
<td valign="top" width="160px">
<table class="tborder" border="0" width="100%" align="center">

PUT YOUR CONTENT HERE.


</table>
</td>
</tr>
</table>

For everyone asking to have this working on other pages:

I have no plans to expand it to cover other pages at this time. It is possible that in the future I may do additional versions for global useage or for specific other pages on the site, but as things stand these are right at the bottom of my to do list.

Hey question.. I was toying around with this, and trying to take out the statistics "Posts: 10 Threads: 1 Members: 1 , Welcome today's newest member" etc. and the variable does not show up when i put it in a sidebar box.. Any idea how to fix that? I want to trim the length of the *forumhome* by putting some information in various side boxes...

peterska2
30 Aug 2006, 04:03
those variables only work in the forumhome template.

If you find in your forumhome template

$forumhome_sidecolumn_right
</table> and add below the code for the whats going on box then it will work. You will need to change some of the phrases to get them to fit without breaking the layout.

peterska2
06 Sep 2006, 23:37
it is something to do with the content that you have in your column template.

There should be no closing table tag at the end of it, and no starting table tag at the beginning of it.

Warning: Unknown(your file path.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /global.php(356) : eval()'d code on line 2

Dear peterska,

I did actually before i started with any thing.

CP>Plugins> Manage plugins


One of the admins in vbulletin.com has send me this thread;

I searched your error code here and most of the Threads with the same or similar error codes suggest the problem is related to plugins. The usual response includes these suggestions:

"Disable your plugins, then reenable them one at a time till you find out which one is causing this."

"This error is from a plugin you've installed. You need to disable each of your plugins then turn one at a time to see which one is causing this.

If you cannot log into the Admin CP then to disable the plugin system, edit config.php and add this line right under <?php

define('DISABLE_HOOKS', true);

This will disable all hooks and allow you to log in properly with no hooks running.

Okay i have found out how to disable it and now my forum is back...

I have added this line: define('DISABLE_HOOKS', true); in config.php and after that the forum was back.

So should I install this plugin again? I really need the right side column.

peterska2
01 Oct 2006, 00:15
disable the product in the product manager then remove the line from the config file. if it goes back to the same way then you will need to add the line to config again and disable all products then remove the line and enable them again one by one till you find the one that is causing the problem.

I'm not saying that it won't work.

I do not support changes from my instructions to make it work on other pages.

As stated clearly in the the title, the modification is for FORUMHOME only.

For all pages you want the one by amykhar (released for 3.5.x and works perfectly on 3.6.x)

I have previously stressed this in both threads, and any issues arising to attempting to use it on other pages you are on your own with.

Even if I could help/had time to figure out what and where you were trying to do something, I just simply don't have an internet connection as such at present and am limited to cyber cafes or using the WAP feature on my cell phone. It's impossible to do much development/testing like this, even posting and reading threads is very difficult hence my lack of activity as advertised until the end of the month.

yep it's not fixed. Luckily I did it on a "test" style that I run all my hacks and stuff on first so if it gets screwed up I can revert it lol. I haven't been able to figure it out though and will have to change it so the columns aren't on the bottom.

How do you add multiple tables on the right column?

yes you just need to use the code you have added to put another row in the box.

to add a break between to areas, use

</table>
<br />
<table class="tborder" border="0" width="100%" align="center">ensure that your template starts with <tr> and ends with </tr> otherwise it will not work.

Did you guys follow the instructions to the letter?

I have only installed this on default based styles (and yes some of them are pretty modified but still based on the default style) and have encountered no problems at all.

However, without further details from you, I cannot assist with this. Ideally I need to see it in operation with template comments turned on then I can see your exact installation of it.

Ohiosweetheart
11 Dec 2006, 21:25
I followed it to the letter, and checked, and re-checked. I've installed the left-side column on many forums Kerry. I gave up and installed the left side column with no problem whatsoever.

If I try this one again, I'll post the url and the code here so you can see. But three times now, this has happened, lol

In your XML file that contains the code for the column Peterska2.

Try using this code which I created for my site and see what you think. It validates, and has collasible blocks and looks neat!

You would need a modification that did those, and then integrate them into each other. You might want to post a request or question for help with that.

can this be changed to all forum pages? if not is there a working one for 3.6.4 ?

Any changes made to it to display on other pages are unsupported, and assistance cannot be given if it does not work correctly.

amykhar wrote an all pages one for 3.5.x which works on 3.6.x

After the last </tr> works great (and leaving a </tr> at the end of the template)

Has anyone worked out an easy way to export latest posts into the side column? I've tried myself but I'm not the best at modifying hacks to work together and so on, I'm aware though it could be done with the external.php script? But aye, gonna throw the boat out and ask if anyone who has done it might share? Thanks!

Hello, i have this running on talkdelaware.com, its easy and effective, but the column doesnt align with the forum cat, under the shoutbox.

i noticed on "bug fixes" for your left column you have "align fix" or something, how do i align this correctly? i like the right side better.

The left side version can be found here (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=117988)

this link doesn't work, can anyone point me in the direction of the left side version of this?

thanks

I can't seem to get a background image with the right column, but I can with the left. I'm using this code:

<td valign="top" width="160px" STYLE="background-image:url('imagesrc');background-attachment:fixed;background-repeat:no-repeat;">

It seems to work when I take off the no-repeat, but then the problem is that the background image repeats, which I don't want to happen.

Is the right column aligned differently than the left column? Seems like that's the problem.

i am having the same problem as chadi

i upgraded to 3.6.7. on 1 skin, i reverted the template, and then added in the column coding. on another skin i did not revert yet, it still shows.

i've tried re-importing the xml with overwrite, and nothing.

manually do the template edits to the pages you want them to appear otherwise use the ultimate side columns hack

RaceJunkie

If this makes a column that collapses

<table class="tborder" cellpadding="$stylevar[cellpadding]" cellspacing="$stylevar[cellspacing]" border="0" width="100%" align="center">
<thead>
<tr>
<td class="tcat">
<a style="float:$stylevar[right]" href="#top" onclick="return toggle_collapse('my_table')"><img id="collapseimg_my_table" src="$stylevar[imgdir_button]/collapse_tcat$vbcollapse[collapseimg_my_table].gif" alt="" border="0" /></a>
TABLE TITLE

</tr>
</thead>
<tbody id="collapseobj_my_table" style="$vbcollapse[collapseobj_my_table]">
<tr>
<td class="alt1">
STUFF THAT IS HIDDEN WHEN THE TABLE IS COLLAPSED
</td>
</tr>
</tbody>
</table>

How do I do one that users can not collapse?

looks like I have the same issue with the side colume being at the bottom..

RaceJunkie
13 Aug 2007, 03:50
Here is what I have been able to find so far.

If you have a style that requires you to enter a forum ID in the forumhome_forumbit_level1_nopost template that is the problem (at least for me)

<if condition="$forum[forumid] == 178">
<else />
<tr><td class="thead" style="line-height: 0px; padding: 0px; margin: 0px;" colspan="<if condition="$vboptions[showmoderatorcolumn]">6<else />5</if>"><img src="$vboptions[cleargifurl]" alt="" width="1" height="8" /></td></tr>
</tbody>
</table>
<div class="cat_spacer"></div>
</if>

My problem is if I enter forum ID 178 everything looks fine for a guest, (since this is the first forum they can see) But when I do this the side column is at the bottom for me since the first forum I can view is before this one..

The way I fixed it was remove the above code from the template BUT when you do this your forums will not have spaces between the categories..

Searching for a fix for that now.

is there a max # of characters you can use in the template? I seem to have maxed out the space . It won't save new additions.

Not unless there is a MAX character in the templates and I don't believe there is.

i installed this great plugin to my forum and it works great. My only problem is that when i view the sub-forum list the width of the forum is getting out of hand.

Does anyone encounter this or know a fix for this problem?

Here is a link of what am saying:

Notice the "sidebar" button on the right forum area which hides/reveals the side bar column. Where can I find this hack?

I already have this sidebar hack installed

Pete C

I installed this and it displayed ok. Problems started as soon as the content was added - Google adsense, the mini calendar mod, a donate button etc. Load times on the forumhome went from a couple of seconds to literally minutes!

Tried removing the content bit by bit, but until EVERYTHING was removed the load time was seriously affected.

Disabled the sidecolumn and normal speeds were regained. Re-enabled and the slowdown recurred. I now have absolutely no doubt this hack seriously affects page loading time. I find this counterproductive since frustrated members simply log out rather than suffer the delays, so the benefit of any added content is thus lost.

It looked good, but it pretty well brought my site to a standstill!

A great shame, mainly due to the amount of time I wasted generating the Google ads, and matching the content to the style colours. *shakes head sadly*


*Update: It looks like I may have found a workaround for this - at least where my own site is concerned. Despite removing it, I was loathe to waste the time I'd spent getting it to look "just how I wanted", so I had another try. Strangely enough, installing it on just one of the 5 styles we have available seems to permit a reasonable load time. I really can't understand why this should be, the content is identical on all the styles, and although it was slowing things down, the display was correct.

I guess this means I can use that one style as default, thus giving a decent airing to the Google ads (s) :), and also giving the members chance to opt for another (slightly faster loading) style, with less advertising.

Hmm, maybe clouds do have silver linings after all . . . re-installed for now - I'll see how it goes.

This hack causes 37 W3C errors. If I remove ALL content from the sidecolumn template, it reduces the W3C error down to one.

Some w3c error examples:

Line 2522, Column 3: document type does not allow element "tr" here.
(this above mainly sums up almost all 37 errors)

Line 2651, Column 3: document type does not allow element "tr" here; assuming missing "table" start-tag.If I empty the template while keeping the plugin installed and forumhome template edits in tact, I get this one error:

Line 2318, Column 7: end tag for "table" which is not finished.</table>I hope someone can figure a way to fix the w3c errors. I've tried a few different methods to no avail. It also causes forumhome to load a bit slower, maybe an extra 3 seconds.

If you have a problem with the column being at the bottom, it is a simple fix. it is because in FORUMHOME, the $forumbits is already encased inside a <table></table> tag. in order to make these separate tables, you must also make the following edits:

In your FORUMHOME template:
FIND:

<table class="tborder" cellpadding="$stylevar[cellpadding]" cellspacing="$stylevar[cellspacing]" border="0" width="100%" align="center">
$forumbits
</table>


REPLACE WITH:

$forumbits



then, in forumhome_forumbit_level1_nopost, REPLACE THE WHOLE TEMPLATE WITH:

<table class="tborder" cellpadding="$stylevar[cellpadding]" cellspacing="$stylevar[cellspacing]" border="0" width="100%" align="center">
<tbody>
<tr>
<td class="thead" colspan="<if condition="$vboptions[showmoderatorcolumn]">6<else />5</if>">
<if condition="$childforumbits">
<a style="float:$stylevar[right]" href="#top" onclick="return toggle_collapse('forumbit_$forumid')"><img id="collapseimg_forumbit_$forumid" src="$stylevar[imgdir_button]/collapse_tcat{$collapseimg_forumid}.gif" alt="" border="0" /></a>
</if>
<a href="forumdisplay.php?$session[sessionurl]f=$forum[forumid]">$forum[title]</a>
<if condition="$show['forumdescription']"><div class="smallfont">$forum[description]</div></if>
<if condition="$show['subforums']"><div class="smallfont"><strong>$vbphrase[subforums]</strong>: $forum[subforums]</div></if>
</td>
</tr>
</tbody>
<if condition="$childforumbits">
<tbody id="collapseobj_forumbit_$forumid" style="{$collapseobj_forumid}">
$childforumbits
</tbody>
</if>
</table>
<div style="padding:0px 0px 16px 0px;"></div>

just work on your own errors one at a time. the validator will tell you which code needs to be fixed, just find it and fix it ;)
