Author: Andrew Harmor
Version: 2.0.2
File Edits: 0
Template Edits: 2
Difficulty: Easy


Description:
You can add links or multiple menus to the navbar quickly through a form. Specify which usergroups can see each link via the permissions system.


F.A.Q.
Q: Why aren't the links showing?
A: Edit the link in your Admin CP and check the usergroup permissions

Q: All the links I made from the last version are gone
A: Go into phpmyadmin and select your vbulletin database.
Browse the table named "custom_droplinks". Change all the "catid's" with 0 to 1.
Go into your ACP --> Advanced Navbar Links --> Modify/Delete The links should show up under the first category. You can edit the links from here and select a different category to place it in.

Q: How do I get the links to appear on vBAdvanced?
A: Go into your ACP --> vBa CMPS --> Default Settings
Look for "Portal Output Global Variables". Add the following into the text area.

custom_singlelinks
custom_droplinks
custom_droplinks_cat




If you install this mod please press the "Install" button.

--Change Log--
1.0.0 - Initial Release

1.0.1 - took out the code that automatically added HTML to the navbar. I thought having it do it automatically was cool but can be annoying because you can't easily customize the class or placement

2.0.0 - Added the functionality to add multiple drop down menus

2.0.1 - Added missing table prefixes

Some of you may know this hack from 3.5.x. When I first created this hack I slowly worked out the bugs. Let us pray that this hack runs smoothly on the 3.6 branch.
In the thread for the 3.5.x hack some members demanded usergroup permissions, seperators, and multiple drop down boxes. Well I didn't know how to go about it. I did however deliver on the usergroup permissions a few days ago but I have a feeling they're not going to be as excited as much as if I released closer to when they asked for it.

I would like to improve this hack by adding user defined seperators to the drop down box.
Please read this thread (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=120524)

I do not need help with with the seperators anymore because I have figured out how to do it.

What you can do is create a seperator and apply usergroup permissions to it.
So you could create a seperator called "Staff Links" and only allow admin, s-mods, and mods see it.
Then under the seperator have a link to the "Admin CP" and only allow admins to see the link.
I'll try to illustrate it for you people

[Staff Links] <-- Only viewable by Admins, S-Mods, and Mods
[Admin CP] <-- Only viewable by Admins
[ModCP] <-- Only viewable by S-Mods and Mods
[Fun Links] <-- Viewable by everyone
[Arcade] <-- Viewable by everyone except guests and banned users

I am coding everything I need to and I'll ship it out as soon as I'm sure it works correctly.

Both "Stand Alone" and "Drop Down" links aren't showing?

dwbro1
12 Jul 2006, 06:18
mine either .. :(

Update:

It does show on the nav on the forums but not on the main vbadvanced page.. hmm

BTW can you assign multiple drop downs and stack links under them?

harmor19
12 Jul 2006, 06:37
You can only have one drop down menu but I'm planning on adding multile drop down menus as soon I figure out how to do seperators.

So they both work on the forums though?

Try this
In your CMPS settings under Portal Output Global Variables place:
custom_droplinks
custom_singlelinks

When you click on the background the link is on it'll open on the same page. I don't know how to get around that.

I would personally like to use this to manage all the links on my navbar.... not just one "extra" dropdown. the ability to create more than one dropdown would be much nicer.

This is because vBulletin added something to one of their js files.

Is this supposed to auto-edit the navbar template for you? - the install instructions don't indicate this... im using an old version from vB3.5.4 which was working... untill i reverted the template of course... then i thought good... the install instructions don't say about editing the navbar template... i'll upload... still nothing, i'll re add the code below to my navbar...but im sure i saw no drop downs...only the link to start it... maybe i need to refresh something...


<!-- CUSTOM -->
<td id="custom_links" class="vbmenu_control"><a href="#custom_links">$vbphrase[custom_links_link]</a> <script type="text/javascript"> vbmenu_register("custom_links"); </script></td>
$custom_singlelinks
<!-- CUSTOM -->

I see that the template does get added automagically... my problem was permissions and not uploading the latest files (doh) then for some reason the 'link_perms' field wasn't being added to my database and causing errors when i try to enter permission values for links... added that missing field (it is in your installer but dunno why it didn't work) and alls ok now... and working on my vBa CMPS (with added global variables)

I have installed it and it works for 80%.

When i add links in the EXTRA dropdown who are normally in my regular menu and i erase them in the Navbar template then i loose everything. As the extra as some more links (buttons)

And please how can we change extra...


By the way i really love this mod..:cool:

Search for "Extras" in phrases. You can change it from there.

is this project continued?
i'd would be fine if a (line) seperator or toppic (no link) could be entered.
i solved the seperator with an < hr > and an # as link, but it doesn't look fine.
better would be e.g. a simple blue box with text as seperator - like "quick links" in here on top (know what i mean)...

a <div style="width:100%;background-color:darkblue;"><font color=white><b>Bilder</b></font><div>
looks aweful and i can't add enough code, cause it's cut of :(

I noticed permissions only applies to the primary group. Can this be changed to also include additional groups?

As an example,
User: Jake
Primary group = Administrators
Secondary Groups = Registered Users

So if I create a new link and have it only visible to Registered Users, user Jake will not be able to see this link.

If you mean "vBa CMPS" go into your Admin CP --> vBa CMPS --> Default Settings
Look for "Portal Output Global Variables" and add "custom_singlelinks" and "custom_droplinks" to the text area.

In your navbar template
Find

Are you using a custom style? If so the designer may have put the navbar in the header template.

Extras Drop down menu not working, If you add a link as a drop down is will appear as stand alone and not drop down.

If you click on the extra drop down only shows extras which is not selectable or active.

What you'll need to do is Open the plugin called "Custom Links" and look for
$search_text = '$vbphrase[calendar]</a></td>';
$vbulletin->templatecache['header'] = str_replace($search_text,
$search_text.fetch_template('customlinks1'),$vbulletin->templatecache['header']);
(It's at the bottom).
Open your navbar template and look for HTML to place the custom links after. Replace $vbphrase[calendar]</a></td> with the HTML you'd like to use. Save the plugin and it should work.

Maybe after I do multiple drop down menus. For some reason I don't feel like doing anything to this hack since I released it. Maybe some time in the future I'll add more features.

from what i've seen, most users bypass the drop-down links in the nabar..just because they don't see them.
i really like the ease in which this hack works. maybe by adding a second navbar and then using this mod to add links to it??????

I added this exactly with quotes and it still does not work on the cmps page, but works on all other pages.

ARCADE template has $navbar as the variable for the default navbar, and I removed that and placed $menucontrol in it's place, hoping that your menu would show up.

Alas, it didn't. Well, actually, the "Extras" showed up, but empty. No links showed up that are defined by me in your module in the ACP.

Any ideas on how to get consistancy in ibproarcade with your hack?

Hi All

Same problem over here. Is ther somebody who can help me out. In vbPortal I had the same problem but that's already solved by adding the entire content of the global_start plugin to the global.php of the portal. But I don't see how to solve this problem. The main links show up at the arcade but the added links aren't visible.

Is there anyone who can help me out?

Thanks in advance!

Hi,

It's quite simple to do this:

Go to your AdminCP --> Plugins & Products --> Plugin Manager --> locate the Custom Links global_start plugin.

Copy al the content of this plugin and paste it to you vbPortal's global.php. the location to paste it is right above:

// get new private message popup

That's it.

try this:

open /arcade/functions/functions.php
search for global $header, $vbphrase, $vboptions, $stylevar, $headinclude, $bbuserinfo, $session, $show, $pmbox;
and replace it with global $header, $vbphrase, $vboptions, $stylevar, $headinclude, $bbuserinfo, $session, $show, $pmbox, $custom_droplinks;

But there is nowhere I can find in admin to define / add those extra links.
I have read the entire thread.
I have seen other people say they can not find where to do this.
You just seem to say "Make sure you vave uploaded the cpnav_custom_links.xml file"
I have done this.
I can not find a single easy to understand reply to say how I now add / edit extra links.
How do I add the links?????

Hi

If you add the directions to where to add links etc. (I was looking vB options and plugins areas for hours) and how to edit the "extras" name (OK< so I am new to vB, but I think many here are) in the install notes, I will vote 5/5. If you don't, I would only vote 3/5 because it clearly is not easy to do these things based on previous posts, not just mine.

I like to have your suggestions.
I'm upgrading this hack so you can create unlimited number of drop down menus.
My question is "Do you want each drop down menu to have their own independent usergroup permissions"?

The way I have the new version coded is that each menu has their own usergroup permissions then the links in the menus have their usergroup permissions of their own.

rickyreter
20 Apr 2007, 23:32
Yes separate would be good as a option..i have used drop down menus but not this mod i have done my own...but find that guest would like content too.

To have the menu display to everyone go to ACP --> Advanced Navbar Links --> Add Menu
In the area listing all the usergroups select all the usergroups.

I don't know why the link doesn't show up on PhotoPlog. I don't have it installed at this time.

This is the mod you should use or update depending on if you have it installed or not.

All the links should be in the table. You'll have to edit "custom_droplinks" table and look for "catid".

I believe you have to edit vBCMPS in your ACP and add a couple variables.

I sent updates when I upgraded to 2.0.0 but not when I upgraded to 2.0.1. The reason is because not that many people downloaded 2.0.0 when I made the upgrade to 2.0.1

(haven't tried a /home/public_blah blah blah yet) - menu from portal front page is gone as is the IPB arcade... global vars were in place and still are in place... still battling on with those links... should be ok...in time, cheers

ahh you can't just add an image and go... you also have to choose who sees the link also... ok fair enough, i'll remember that for next time

actually does that mean that everytime you want to move a menu up or down you now have to reselect the usergroups?...

Yes. I could have done it differently but that would mean adding the code that generates the usergroups in multiple locations.

Thanks.

Were you able to find the links that you said were removed in the table "custom_droplinks"?
If so and you don't know how to edit make them reappear on the navbar just tell me and I'll write a guide. Actually I need to write a guide for this anyways.

I wrote this quickly.
Go into phpmyadmin and select your vbulletin database.
Browse the table named "custom_droplinks". Change all the "catid's" with 0 to 1.
Go into your ACP --> Advanced Navbar Links --> Modify/Delete The links should show up under the first category. You can edit the links from here and select a different category to place it in.

Hi.. did anyone fix the ipbarcade and vbadvanced not showing bug? - it was working before, the same global variables are in place, i believe i haven't touched the arcade although i did insert the global variable there also... please advise

EDIT: i get it

custom_singlelinks
custom_droplinks
custom_droplinks_cat

I must add that 'cat' on to the arcade also i believe :)

Thanks. Also, I don't know if it's possible, but when clicking edit, could you make it so it shows what groups are selected instead of having to re-select them. OR, instead of selecting them, use check boxes (I think this would be best).

Working great, I much prefer the Checkbox options.

One little suggestion, Would it be possible to have note on the "Edit Links & Menus" screen to tell us if the link opens in a new window or not?
The reason I ask is that I inputted a lot of links into this update and then found that some opened in a new browser as I'd forgotten to edit that bit....so then had to go through every link to check....Not important, just a suggestion :) :D

You rock!

I know I keep pumping out suggestions...I hope you don't mind me suggesting 1 more (for the time being lol).

In the edit menu where you can see all the menus and links you can edit, for all the links inside the menu, can you show the display order of those and be able to change them there like you would changing the display order for styles and templates? That would be helpful, at least for me since I always forget to add links and I like certain links at the top and others near the bottom, etc.

Thanks!

Thank you for this hack! I've already vote it 5* and mark as installed!


Can you help me out how to use this with the style : dark_vb_v2 , it use button image instead of text link on the navbar.


I only use your hack to make new dropdown menus, so I created a new button called "LiveScores"



This is the darkvbv2 navigation-bar code :
Dropdown Search menu:

<td id="navbar_search"><a href="$show[nojs_link]#navbar_search"><img src="$stylevar[imgdir_misc]/link_search.gif" border="0" alt="" /></a><script type="text/javascript"> vbmenu_register("navbar_search" ,1); </script></td>



And this is my code to make it possible with the style (with the old version of Advanced Navbar Links - 1.6.0):
<td id="custom_links"><a href="#custom_links"><img src="$stylevar[imgdir_misc]/link_custom.gif" border="0" alt="" /></a><script type="text/javascript"> vbmenu_register("custom_links"); </script></td>


---> But the problem is : it only display the button with the menu_open.gif image, it has no function as the search menu! and even a little fall out of the navbar images row!

Please have a look at this image :
http://img408.imageshack.us/img408/9023/navbartr1.jpg




Can you plz help me figuring out this problem?

Many thanks!!!!
