View Full Version : Show number of days since forum came online!

This is an idea I got from somewhere.
It will show the number of days, hours, minutes and seconds since your forum came online in the forum statistics area below.


First open counter.txt, and change the date you opened the forum from the setcountup, and change all what you want until by following all what's written on the counter.txt file.

After that you will need to edit 1 templates:

In FORUMHOME, find:
<div><phrase 1="member.php?$session[sessionurl]u=$newuserid" 2="$newusername">$vbphrase[welcome_to_our_newest_member_x]</phrase></div>

After if add:
[THE CONTENT OF counter.txt]


Then click save and your done.

This one (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=122991) has it as days, it's a product and you can put it where ever you like.

Great work none the less on the hack, not my prefered style though.

I have a strange prob. It worked fine all the time, but now I get this:
NaN dagen, NaN uren, NaN minuten, etc etc

Any idea what is wrong?

Edit: I probaly found the reason. I updated my Java.
Maybe there is a way to also update this hack so it works for all?

edit2: maybe not the java, because some members claim not to have an update/done nothing and it still is disfunctional. I did not do/add any mods/hacks which can cause this.

clicks uninstall till it has been solved... :(

Great mod :up:
But I want display only days since forum came online without hours, minutes and seconds.
I just removed hours, minutes and seconds forum this code
if (document.layers){
document.countupnsmain.document.countupnssub.document.write(opentags+dday+ " days, "+dhour+" hours, "+dmin+" minutes, and "+dsec+" seconds "+displaymessage+closetags)
document.countupnsmain.document.countupnssub.document.close()
}
else if (document.all||document.getElementById)
crosscount.innerHTML=opentags+dday+ " days, "+dhour+" hours, "+dmin+" minutes, and "+dsec+" seconds "+displaymessage+closetags

setTimeout("countup()",1000)
}
/* ]] */
</script></div>


So now it's look like

if (document.layers){
document.countupnsmain.document.countupnssub.document.write(opentags+dday+ " days "+displaymessage+closetags)
document.countupnsmain.document.countupnssub.document.close()
}
else if (document.all||document.getElementById)
crosscount.innerHTML=opentags+dday+ " days "+displaymessage+closetags

setTimeout("countup()",1000)
}
/* ]] */
</script></div>


Is it correct? I this not exactly because counter is refreshing one time per secound :confused: What code modifications I also have to do is I want to dislay only since forum came online without hours, minutes and seconds.

This is likely caused by a malformed conditional statement. It is highly recommended that you fix this error before continuing, but you may continue as-is if you wish.

You can edit that parts in red. You can edit more than that, but I wouldn't recommend it if you don't know what you're doing.
