See screenshots to understand this all better.


Installation:
1. Import XML file (as product): AdminCP > Plugin System > Manage Products > [Add/Import Product]

-Improved look (used CSS colors for hover effect on message bar, added info icon, message bar moved below navbar)
-Improved codes for better compatibility with different browsers (fully valid XHTML 1.0 Transitional)
-Added Product Version Checking
v1.3 - Nov 11. 2006.
-Added option to disable automatic placement of message in navigation bar

Installed and it works, but we have a small problem.

In two of our skins you cant see the text as its the wrong color, it blends right in.

How do we change the color of the font?

Edit//

Never mind I changed the background in the file.

Just a little suggestion. This code add ad advice on the forum top alerting the zero posting users that in xx days they'll be deleted. .There's a way to integrate this code in your hack?

<div align="center">
<font size="2" face="Trebuchet MS, Geneva, Arial, Helvetica, SunSans-Regular, sans-serif">
<script language="JavaScript1.2">
var today = new Date;
var Future0 = new Date;
ThisYear = 2006;

var FutureMonth = 8;
var FutureDate = 30;

Future0.setMonth(FutureMonth, FutureDate);
Future0.setFullYear(ThisYear);

today1 = Date.parse(today);
future1 = Date.parse(Future0);
secleft = future1 - today1;
miliday = 24 * 60 * 60 * 1000;
daysleft = secleft/miliday;
daysleftint = Math.round(daysleft);

if (daysleftint > 1)
document.write("In <b>", daysleftint, "</b> days, all the zero posting users will be deleted! ");

</script>
</font><br><br></div>

Yes, font color/type needs to be configurable.

Excellent improvements! I installed it again! Maybe you could also add an email feature that sends them an email every so often that tells them I'm going to prune them unless they post ;) It would be nice if that warning was automated. Actually, it would be nice if pruning the no posters could be automated too. ;)

HansMuenchen
11 Nov 2006, 15:01
Would be nice if this hack also would include the possibility to put 0-Poster into a special group and also delete them after x days.

That's what I miss for a long time.

I saw it on a WBB hack and it works good.
Can you expand this hack for that feature?

Means that a user becomes after x days after registration a automatic warning and after x days more inactivity he will be deleted ob put into a ban group?

Thnx for the answer and sorry for my maybe badly english!

Could you please stop placing where tour hacks will show up, and let us decide that with template edits, ourselves?
or AT LEAST tell us how we remove the original location that you selected yourself if we don't want things where you have placed them.

..as you say yourself, some of us has really customized templates (and they can show even though we've got them extremely customized)

Valter
11 Nov 2006, 20:20
It's to make installation easier.

Several of my hacks has option to turn off default placement but here navbar is I think logical place for putting info box, to have it shown on any page. You are first one who is asking how to disable it.

But np, I'll add an option to disable auto-placement in navbar in the next version.

Then I say many Thnx :)
Because found here a hack for that but was only for the 3.5.4 and so it don't work anymore for the 3.6.3 version.

Would be very nice if that features will be possible into your hack, because that makes then many admins live more easy ;)

Great hack, I have one small problem though, it shows up twice under the navbar, no I didn't use the code at the end of the navbar as it said in the read me. I thought maybe I had it installed two times in the product manager but I can only seem to find it once there. Any ideas? Thanks

The message appears only after the user has logged out?? That makes little sense if the user never actually logs out. He'll never see it.

the mouseover effect doesn't work properly. When you go over the bar with your mouse (with the redirection option enabled), the mouse cursor doesn't change even though you are on a hyper link text. Can you fix that? Thanks:D

edit the template cyb_att_zposters_sr_hd

FIND style="background-color: $stylevar[alt1_bgcolor]; width: 100%; text-decoration: none; "

REPLACE WITH

style="background-color: $stylevar[alt1_bgcolor]; width: 100%; text-decoration: none; cursor: hand; "

How can I make ads visible to all users.... guest/mods/reg. users... etc????

davis31b
16 Feb 2007, 21:44
nice install.. however.. I have seen one similar that would redirect them to a blank separate page that displayed a VB message saying.. "you haven't made a post or whatever" and would redirect users there after x number of says instead of having a nag message, I already have the welcome headers installed so half of my page to a member would be nag messages.

Can anyone point me to that mod or possibly reconfigure this one? Thanks.

Hi Cyb I am a fan of your modifications as installation is a breeze and I have no issues with them at all. However in this case this one is installed on 3.6.8 and I set it to show posters:Required Post Count (Leave "1" to alert zero-posters only)
Optionaly increase this number to alert other inactive members - I set this to 50 and members that have been active state:On the top of most pages on this site I get a message that I haven't posted for 707 days. But I have posted at least 5 message in the past 10 days and they have appeared in the forums just fine. I have changed that setting back to 1 to see if this keeps happening.

Any ideas? Cookie setting?

Valter
08 Aug 2007, 00:50
Hi flindersredclaw,

No, this has nothing with the cookies.

If you increase "Required Post Count" you may also wish to customize message which is shown to users. You can write something like "X, you are registered member for a Y days now but your post count is still very low...".

Example:
Set "Required Post Count" to 50
Set Delay to 30 days

If member is registered for a month and has less than 50 posts then message will appear.

This is a great mod! I only have one problem... the small blue icon (pictured in your preview) isnt showing up. In fact, there is no image at all. Please advise!

EDIT: Also is there a way to change the font color?

Valter
01 Sep 2007, 07:48
Blue image (skype_info.gif) comes with vBulletin and is stored in /images/misc/ folder.

To change font color go to Phrase manager and find phrase cyb_att_zposters_message.

Edit phrase, add <font color="red"> to the very start.
Add </font> to the very end.
Change "red" to desired color.

Im sorry to be a bother, but the image still isnt showing up on my forum. Im using a custom skin with which the images folder is named "images_black" instead of simply "images". Would this have an effect on whether or not the skype image shows up, and if so how can I fix this?

Valter
13 Sep 2007, 11:18
Go to your style settings (StyleVars) and update Image Paths.

Be sure "Miscellaneous Images Folder" is correctly set, and skype_info.gif exists in misc folder.
