I'm getting the link "Force User To Accept Forum Rules" showing up twice (link hr link) in the user profile.

Makc666
07 May 2008, 17:55
Cybernetec, it will be nice if you moved phrase "<font color="#66ff00">Forum Rules</font>" ($vbphrase[cybfrules_rules]) which is added to navbar to the template.

Different user's have different styles.
For example some users can have some images around each menu in navbar.
So it will be nice if we can edit template with this phrase for each color.

Also we will be able to set up different color for the phrase "Forum Rules" for each style.
In other words if you will add template you will be able to move color for this one from phrases to templates.

Thanks in advance!

I'm not sure if anyone else was having this issue (haven't seen anyone report it)... or if it had something to do with my style or I don't know what... But when viewing the rules page.. above the tables it was displaying part of the template code: body >

I ended up taking out the following code from the template (cyb_frules):
<if condition="(!$cfrulesagreed AND $cfrshowaccform)" >onload="Cafr_buttonCounter();"</if>

So yeah, just took it out entirely... which is ok for us cause we have the timer disabled anyways (or perhaps thats the problem)... I think that's for the timer anyways LOL

Another factors that may or may not have an impact on this... I have already accepted the rules so the accept button of course doesn't appear for me. I didn't check to see if the same issue occurs if I haven't accepted the rules.

Anyways... thought I'd bring that up in case it wasn't just me...

Either way.. Thanks a bunch Cyb.. This is an awesome mod (I feel like a broken record when referring to your mods but I truly mean it hehe)..

Always, Bree

Nice work updating to 3.7 thanks!

Cyb, I previously made a suggestion for this to be implemented on a 'per forum' basis (ie I want to force users entering our 'For Sale' section to accept the rules before they gain access).

Would you consider adding this to future versions ?

Cheers,

or whatever your main link to your forums is. That should work.

Or if you look up in his demo link in the mod description, the path is:

http://www.bihforum.com/misc.php?do=cfrules

Try that.

Not me.

Are you using custom skins or something similar to that?

I don't have the my rule link in the Navbar. Did you tell the mod to auto add it and then did you manually do this to:

2. OPTIONAL (for some customized styles)
Open template "navbar" and add "$cyb_frules_link" after "vbphrase[faq]</a></td>".
3. OPTIONAL (to add 'reset acceptance status' to different place than default one)
Open template "MEMBERINFO" and add "$cyb_frules_force" wherever you wish.

That would throw it off.

How do I do that?

How do I change the color? Currently it is green on the navbar.

What Exactly Are We Looking For In Pharase Manager, To Change Font Colour.


In your AdminCP, go to:

Languages & Phrases >> Search in Phrases

Then type in:

Forum Rules (click on Find)


Look for the Phrase:

cybfrules_rules (click on Edit)


You will see this line as the Standard Phrase:

<font color="#66ff00">Forum Rules</font>


Change the font color to anything you want in the box that says "English (US) Translation", then click save.


HTH! :)

When a new registrant tries to post they are directed to the advanced rules page, but the screen loads to the top of that page. I have Notices for that new registrant that are in the way and would prefer the top of the screen starts where you see the phrase, "Forum Rules". How can this be done? I designated <a name="forumrules">Forum Rules</a> for the phrase forum_rules, but that is as far as I got. I have to find where there instructions are to go to the forum rules page and start the screen at #forumrules.

How can I make it where all my admins have access to reset a users acceptance of the rules thru the admincp user profile? I used to have this on the old version, but now only I can do it. I am user 1 so I didn't know if this was a default, or if there was a way to make it for the whole user group, etc.

I have installed this fine :) and want to use it to force acceptance of the forum rules for all users, so when a new member registers they are taken directly to the signup form, bypassing the rules page.

How do i do this?

I tried adding $cyb_frules_force to MEMBERINFO but that didn't do it.

Thanks in advance for any help

vBulletin does not accept uppercase characters in product IDs anymore.

This means if you have installed older version of some hack, which used uppercase characters in ID, they may not be upgraded properly.

So save Forum Rules to your computer, to some txt file, then uninstall all instances of hack, then install latest version and update settings.

To upgrade:
-Import XML, allow overwrite
-Revert hack templates if any modified

I've found that upgrading never works for this mod. Every time you try to import the latest version and allow overwrite it always installs it as a completely new version and you end up with both the old and new versions installed.

The only way to upgrade each time that actually works is to first make sure you have a backup copy of all of your site rules, and the rest of the settings in the mod, then completely uninstall the existing version, install the new one, and then re-enter all of the settings and rules.

Is this happening because each new version is actually named differently? So vB thinks it is a completely different product when you install it? i.e each version has the version number in the name of the file at the end such as 3.7, 3.8 etc. If this version number wasn't in the filename then would the mod update correctly and overright the existing mod instead of installing another one alongside the existing one? Would make life much easier if you could get it to do this.

I forgot to also add that having to uninstall an old version, and then install the new one means it resets members having to accept the rules again. This really annoyed some of my existing forum members.

Encountered a very strange behaviour while implementing this.

The "Submit"-Button is jammed if you enter translations for (a) certain phrase(s). It just remains at 20.0 and not clickable, no matter how long you wait.

Verified this with deleting all my phrases for this product after which it worked perfectly again. My phrases just contain plain text, no HTML, GFX or whatsoever. Maybe it could be a charset-issue with UTF-Chars but for now this is only a supposition.

I will do further investigation which phrase(s) actually seem(s) to cause the jamming of the button.

I found the cause, it was the character " included in the phrase "cybfrules_not_agreed".

Having replaced it with a ' the whole thing works fine now.

Save your Rules to txt file, then try to upgrade normally. If it add new item instead of replacing old product in Product Manager, then uninstall it and install latest version, then restore rules from txt, check other settings and update if needed, then save.

Log into your ACP.
Under "Languages & Phrases" choose "Search in Phrases"
Fill in the search form:
Search for Text: cybfrules_not_agreed
Product: Cyb - Advanced Forum Rules
Search in ... : Phrase Variable Name Only

After clicking "Find" you should see the phrase, click on edit and replace or erase every " that you might have used in the translation of the phrase, that should do the trick.

Noticed that quoted text is not displayed correctly if you view the forum rules while registration (i.e. "replace with forum rules" is switched on. If you view the forum rules via /do=cfrules it displays just fine) with Opera 8 or MSIE 7 - Firefox 2.x displays fine. The div with the quote is very, very narrow. Happens even in default style for me.

Any idea what the cause may be? Had no problems with this under 3.5.8.

The rules are entered via the according part of the ACP. You need to copy them from there to a text file for backup purposes or you might extract them from a database backup you hopefully made before you reinstalled - the files from the webserver alone don't hold much of all the vB-data and they definitely don't hold your forum rules.

Thanks, I do have a backup of the database before I reinstalled. Do you mean if I log into my webhost and do a full backup that isn't a good method or are you saying that going into vbulletin and doing a backup isn't a good method.

Ingress
07 Jul 2008, 09:51
To be honest: I can't tell ;-)

It depends on what a "full backup if I log into my webhost" actually means. Does it backup files on the webserver? Does it backup the database? Does it both? In which format does it store the backups and how are they restored? This are questions that only your webhost can answer.

Database backups that are done via the ACP may cause problems on some hosts and with big databases when you try to restore them - just do a search on backing up your forum or moving it to another host, there are plenty of threads that deal with this here and on vbullettin.com.

I think that may have been my issue... upgrading to Patch Level 1 of vBulletin. I am not sure, but it is shortly after that when a user had the issue and I logged in as various users and noticed no one could post and the submit button was hung.

I uninstalled the mod (of course I did save everything first) and then reinstalled it... and all seems to be okay now. I also did not have all the usergroups listed in the field to disable the mod for certain usergroups, so I added those. Hopefully that will help prevent situations like this again. Fortunately it was almost 4am and not many users were online posting at the time.

With my forum there was only a problem if I entered a translation for the given hack-specific phrase. I also upgraded to 3.7.2 PL1, had several registrations since then and the users ARE able to post - I doubt there's a specific problem with PL1.

Did you disable all other hacks to verify they don't interfere with this one? Is it all users of yours that have the problem or just a part of them? Then maybe it's worth a try and ask them if they all use the same Virscan / Anti-Ad / Privacy-Proxy, they often cripple javascript and may cause such behaviour.

Cyb, you should take a serious look at this, maybe there's still something other than the phrase thing that may cause the javascript to malfunction.

A member brought this to my attention. I then logged in as this member and it gave me the same problem. I logged in randomly as a couple of other members and still had the same problem. I decided then to register myself as a new member to test it. I have tested it in IE7 and FF from my laptop at home and my work computer in another city. I have reinstalled it twice. I am about out of options on what to do or try next.

For it to be working fine and then after PL1 it start acting up is strange to me.

Still puzzling me.

I went back and disabled all of the plugins that I installed after this one and even a few before this one. Uninstalled this plugin and re-installed it. Still the Submit button does nothing and freezes if I place a countdown on it.

When I mouse over it shows the link, "misc.php?do=cfrulesagree"

The link is already "forums/misc.php?do=cfrules" ... if I add "agree" to the end and enter, all works well. So the problem is that the submit button is not acting as an enter click.

ShackMaster
14 Jul 2008, 05:33
It's a temporary fix, but could be permanent I suppose. I altered the cyb_frules as follows:

<phrase>$vbphrase[cybfrules_iagree_note]</phrase>
<a href="http://www.hometheatershack.com/forums/misc.php?do=cfrulesagree">
<img src="http://www.hometheatershack.com/images/submitbutton.gif" border="0" alt="Press this button!" />

I am trying to edit the template for Blaze on my site (http://mercuryice.com)... If you change the template to Blaze you can see my problem--in the header the background is black, and I want to change that, but I can't find the right code anywhere.

The upper link does use the same CSS as the lower one. You need to deactivate "Automatically add "Forum Rules" to Navbar" in the options and add the links manually. While doing this assign the according CSS classes to the links for them to be styled differently from each other.

For information about how to manually add the links have a look into info.txt. It's only a $cyb_frules_link that must be added to the templates.

Cybernetec, 1st, thanks for "Option to change "Forum Rules" link color or set to style's default".
2nd, it will be nice if you move the phrase and the color to the new template.

Because for example on my forum every link in navtab has its own icon.
And every style has its icons.
So if your product had one more template with "Forum Rules" phrase it will be wonderfull.
Because in the current varinat of how the "Forums Rules" is coded it is not so easy to add some icon or decoration separate for every style.

If you didn't understand we, tell we I will try to say in other words.

Thank, Maxim

I am having a problem. When I enforce the rules, it works correctly but the button to accept the rules doesn't do anything when a user clicks on it. This happens with or without the countdown function working and happens on both Safari 3.1.2 and FireFox. 3.0.1.

I know this was asked before, but I didn't see an answer - right now the rules show up in two different places 1- in the original registration window (not so pretty) , and 2 - on a separate page (nice looking) accessible from the nav bar "Forum Rules" link.

I know this doesn't apply to sites whos rules in the registration window are different from their forum rules - however when the rules are the same in both windows I would like to know if its possible when a user registers to force the Forum Rules page from the nav bar to be displayed, user accepts & then the registration process continues?

I don't see this
There is an option in member profile to do this.
in either admincp profile of the user in the "Quick User Links" dropdown menu , or in the drop down menu under their username in their posts.

I thought it may be this option,
3. OPTIONAL (to add 'reset acceptance status' to different place than default one)
Open template "MEMBERINFO" and add "$cyb_frules_force" wherever you wish.
but I've searched phrases for $cyb_frules_force and get no hits on it.

I also cannot find the phrase $cyb_frules_force anywhere in the MEMBERINFO template. Where is it supposed to show up with the default install?

Where am I going wrong? Everything seems to be working fine, except for this one thing.

I'm no coder for sure. Strictly copy and paste, and even that is iffy at times. :o
I'm sure it's staring me right in the face, but I need more specific instructions for it I guess.

I'm using vBulletin 3.7.2 Patch Level 1.
The only other hacks I've installed on it is the "Change Posts Owner 1.7.0", "NoSpam! 4.0" and this one "Cyb - Advanced Forum Rules 3.8".

Hi,

If I were to use the cyb advanced forum rules plug-in, would it make search engines not catalog or unfavorably catalog my forum with regard to search engine optimization? I mean, some similar plug-ins would redirect viewers to another webpage with the forum rules on it. This redirect causes some search engines such as Google to either not catalog the webpage in the forum or give it an unfavorable ranking with regard to search engine optimization.

Thank you for your help,
Tom.

I just made a change in my forum rules and twice tried to reset all users statuses to make them accept the new rules and it didn't work either time.

I am going to just use a query to force it, but wanted to let you know I'd run into a problem with it.

It looked like it should work (asked me to confirm, and then told me all statuses had been reset, but it didn't actually require any users to re accept the rules.

not sure if asked, but I have 1 section I want to use this on. Can this be used for just one forum section? I don't want it to apply to EVERY forum section, just ONE!!

Basically when the user clicks on a particular link, I want this mod to pop up for display, they read it, what 20 seconds, then they can enter the section!!

Ok this has been asked about 4-5 times, but no response in this question yet.

NIce - ESPECIALLY for me because right now me and my moderators are having problems with the forum and how to get people to follow the rules, with our upcoming sports season starting. It's a sports board so the people are VERY passionate in their posts and can lose control, which effects everyone.

The ONLY thing I don't like is that the rules come from a BBCode type box. I entered a text file straight into this box, but when it's displayed, there's NO carriage returns - it appears as one non-stop jumbled mess.

So I put a <p> after each line, and it displayed fine.

But if there was any way to make it accept a text file (or even better, the body of a message since my rules are listed in thread #1)

I LOVE however how it auto-added the rules link to my navbar. Now there's NO EXCUSE for anyone to say they didn't know the rules. :)

Nice, but had to disable. Some members were not getting the submit button after the countdown ended nor with it set to no countdown.


email from one of my members....
I tried last night and today to respond to one of my posts on the forum and am being told that I must accept the forum rules before I can access features(including PMing a mod to ask about it, or posting) I clicked the box that says I accept(after re-reading them) and clicked submit, but it did not do anything. I tried in a separate window and it did the same thing probably a half dozen times now. Thanks

Too bad, I can't go on using this mod, because ...
- there are moments, when users can't click the ok-box because it isn't clickable (!!)
- users have to double-accept the rules (first at registration)

Isn't it possible to correct this?
There was a post http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showpost.php?p=1574923&postcount=136 where somebody wrote about canceling the whole JS-Thing with the ok-box.
How to do this in detail? Does it work?

Question: Can this be used for 1 specific category of forums?
My regular rules suffice for the rest of the board, But one category demands a secondary set of rules that govern just those forums within a specific category. I have a rules sticky post.. But we all know how often (Rule) stickies are read before someone posts something wrong..

I just need this to do the one category, not the entire board.. is this possible

Noticed that quoted text is not displayed correctly if you view the forum rules while registration (i.e. "replace with forum rules" is switched on). If you view the forum rules via /do=cfrules it displays just fine) with Opera 8 or MSIE 7 - Firefox 2.x displays fine. The div with the quote is very, very narrow. Happens even in default style for me.

Any idea what the cause may be? Had no problems with this under 3.5.8.

Ingress

I tracked it down a bit further. The output html is malformed just before the quote tags.

Example:

2.2 Blah Blah Rules<br />
<div style="margin:20px; margin-top:5px; ">
<div class="smallfont" style="margin-bottom:2px">Zitat:</div>
<table cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" border="0" width="100>
<tr>
<td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset">


Since there is no unit given, the browsers interpret the value differently. Opera interpretes it as "100px", MSIE and Firefox as "100%". This explains why it only occurs in Opera.

Again, it does it only while registration, /do=cfrules shows the rules completely right and the parameter for with is given out correctly as "100%".

I was unable to finde the cause for this in the sourcecode and have to rely on you to have a look into it. Hope you will find the time finally. :)

Great mod!

I'm confused about one thing.

I'm trying to add a link to forumrules to my second navbar.

I currently have the "add link to navbar" button set to yes. While that is set to "yes" it puts a link on my navbar just like it should. I can then add the phrase $cyb_frules_link to either my main navbar or my second navbar and it adds another link. I can even add it a couple times and it keeps adding more of them.

But, as soon as I set the radio button to not automatically display the link on forum home, the link I've added becomes malformed and messes up the navbar.

How can I disable the standard link and still have it allow me to place it elsewhere?

Thanks for the help!

Scroll down until you find $cyb_frules_link .= '<a href="misc.php?do=cfrules"';

/misc.php?do=cfrresetuser&tu=[userid]&tun=[username]

I would like this function to be activated, whenever a member receives an infraction. i.e. if a member receives a infraction, he/she is forced to read the rules

Please contact me by PM to let me know:
- the costs
- what other hacks you have coded
- if this functionality description raises questions
- how you would like to design these functions
- payment options

I would prefer it, if this hack would be made available to vb.org after I pay for it. Though if this is against the preference of the coder, I would agree.

Once a coder is selected, I will provide feedback here.

Thanks for the great mod!

May I know how do I customise the mod so that I can set rules more than just one forum i.e. different rules for different forums of my site?(giving control to my moderators to set their own rules)

This mod works like a popup notice, something I have been hunting high and low looking for one that works in 3.7.4.

Thanks again

^^ Exactly. I would like to set up TWO different rules for my forums. I currently have two rules -- one for regular members and one for paid members.

1 for all my regular forums and 1 just for paid member (as soon as their status change to paid member via paid subscription)

Is this possible with this version? or is there a new one coming with this feature?

The info at the top of this thread is inconsistent. The changelog says the version is 3.8, but the info at the very top part - the sticky stuff that stays across all pages says 3.7.

Version: 3.7.x - is the version of vBulletin and not the version of this MOD.

Version of the mod is showen above that:

I have this installed on my site - www.eteknix.com which is a vb portal.

when on the forum the rules link works, but on the vb portal it doesn't as it doesnt point to the forum bit.

It only points to - misc.php?do=cfrules instead of http://forums.eteknix.com/misc.php?do=cfrules

Any ideas?

Thank you! I've been waiting for this update. Loving the multiple rules feature.

I had hard time finding it, so I'll post this here for others who might not know where to configure the new features:

Go to:
[whatever_site]/misc.php?do=cfrules_mng

And look for:
"Manage Rules", "Apply to Forums", "Apply to Forums" under nav menu:

https://www.vbulletin.org/forum/external/2009/04/17.png

*EDIT* How do you change the "header" and "footer" portion of the rules? :confused: There used to be an option through the rules config page~

Indeed, I can't add general rules anymore under the CYB options menu in the adminCP. Even if I apply the rules to every single section, I still can't add it. Even the rules showing on misc.php?do=cfrules is now completely empty.

Also when I go to the rules link I get the following error:

Just go to the following as explained above:

[whatever_site]/misc.php?do=cfrules_mng

Your able to add rules there.

How do you change the "header" and "footer" portion of the rules?
For breaking above rules you may be warned/banned appropriately! is now in Phrases. This is better for forums where several languages are used. "Header" was removed.

Counter should work fine now. I've tested it on two forums using Firefox Win 3.0.8, Firefox Mac 3.0.8, Safari 3.2.1, and IE8.

Thanks for a great plugin, but...

the 3.9 update broke a few settings on my forum:

Some part of the text on the rules page disappeared and the "force.." - link on the profile page disappeared.

Infraction -> "reset acceptance status" does not work either.

I am running the latest vB version (3.8.2)

Valter
20 Apr 2009, 14:11
If member has not accepted rules, then 'Force to accept' link in their profile is not shown.

Infraction should reset acceptance status if you have enabled this in product options. I've just tested this again, and it worked with no problems.

Please check your settings and update if needed.

20 Apr 2009, 18:18
I just tested it again with a new user account. It's no longer possible to force any user to accept the rules. The link on the profile appears, but when I reset acceptance status for a single user, that user can still post threads despite the current settings.

Resetting acceptance status gives users the possibility to accept the rules again, but it's not forcing them to.

Here are my settings:

Forum permissions needs to be rebuilt.

Please go to 'Manage Rules' page, then 'Apply to Forums' tab, then select at least one forum and apply some Rules Set to it. This will update permissions for all forums and product will start working properly.
