04 Feb 2009, 07:03
This adds 4 mini icons (famfam) corresponding to each forum on forumhome and forumdisplay (subforums)

DEMO1 (http://tech6.com/forums/)
DEMO2 (http://indiatalks.in/forum/)

The 4 controls added are:-

Read new Posts
Create a new thread
Subscribe to Forum
RSS Feed


1. First upload the 4 attached icons in images/misc/ folder.

2. Then in Forum Home Templates/forumhome_forumbit_level2_post

Find this:

<td class="alt1Active" align="$stylevar[left]" id="f$forum[forumid]" >


Add below:-

<div style="float:right">
<a href="search.php?do=getnew&f=$forum[forumid]"><img src="images/misc/newposts.png" border="0" width="11" height="11" hspace="2" alt="Read New Posts" /></a>

<a href="newthread.php?do=newthread&f=$forum[forumid]"><img src="images/misc/newthread.png" border="0" width="11" height="11" hspace="2" alt="Create a New Thread" /></a>

<a href="subscription.php?do=addsubscription&f=$forum[forumid]"><img src="images/misc/subscribe.png" border="0" width="11" height="11" hspace="2" alt="Subscribe" /></a>

<a href="external.php?type=rss2&forumids=$forum[forumid]"><img src="images/misc/rss.png" border="0" width="11" height="11" hspace="2" alt="RSS feed" /></a>
</div>


3. Then in Forum Home Templates/forumhome_forumbit_level1_post

Find this:

<td><img src="$vboptions[cleargifurl]" alt="" width="9" height="1" border="0" /></td>
<td width="100%">


Make the change in the above code (in red) and add below:-

<div style="float:right">
<a href="search.php?do=getnew&f=$forum[forumid]"><img src="images/misc/newposts.png" border="0" width="11" height="11" hspace="2" alt="Read New Posts" /></a>

<a href="newthread.php?do=newthread&f=$forum[forumid]"><img src="images/misc/newthread.png" border="0" width="11" height="11" hspace="2" alt="Create a New Thread" /></a>

<a href="subscription.php?do=addsubscription&f=$forum[forumid]"><img src="images/misc/subscribe.png" border="0" width="11" height="11" hspace="2" alt="Subscribe" /></a>

<a href="external.php?type=rss2&forumids=$forum[forumid]"><img src="images/misc/rss.png" border="0" width="11" height="11" hspace="2" alt="RSS feed" /></a>
</div>


Thats it!

a) Obviously, works in all vb versions!
b) Yes, it is XHTML valid.
c) If this has been released before, then sorry.

If you like it, please click Install (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/vborg_miscactions.php?do=installhack&threadid=204168) and join my site too ;)

Well, I found a reference somewhere on how to turn it on, but hadn't thought it worked.

In fact, in Firefox, it doesn't, but in IE it is fine (I hadn't tried IE)..

I'll investigate further, and thanks for the prompt response, much appreciated!

Cheers,
Dave

EDIT : It is working on both now, must have been caching or something.. Sorry to have bothered you all :)

If you want to hide it from guests, just wrap the code within:

<if condition="$show['member']">

<!-- Code here -->

</if>

in 3.8.0 forumids does not work, it has to be replaced with forumid on mine.

everything is possible!

I don't use the recent threads cmps module, so you'll have to figure it out.

The code remains the same, you'll probably need to add it in adv_portal_recthreads_exp_head OR adv_portal_recthreads_exp template. It would be easy, try it out.

<td width="100%">
This with is for a newest table or a existing table in template, like:

this table have specific width 9, it makes change 100%...?!!

Explain please...

veenuisthebest
19 Feb 2009, 16:59
Hello,

NO, you do not have to change that, leave it as 9. The change is in the <td> after the line of code you posted.

Find this:

<td><img src="$vboptions[cleargifurl]" alt="" width="9" height="1" border="0" /></td><td>

And make it <td width="100%">

Hi, firstly lovely addition to vB

I have a concern though.. I do not want my moderator section having RSS as if I were to ever remove a Moderator then they would still be getting the RSS feed for the section. No?

How do I disable it for a specific section on my forum?

So you do not want the RSS icon to display for any moderator (staff) forum, is that all what you want?

You can wrap the rss icon code with a conditional

<if condition="$forum['forumid'] != X"></if>

where X is the forum ID.

Let me know if it works, you forgot to mark as installed btw.

Let me know if it works, you forgot to mark as installed btw.

I had not installed it until now and I have noticed that I get a blank screen for the 2 non public sections when I click on the RSS icon (mods and site news section) so I assume it will only generate an RSS feed for public forums/sections so that would stop it anyway.

But is the above method better than just having a blank screen?

PS: the if condition removes the rss icon so that works, but I'm wondering if it is possible to show up a msg saying that no rss feed is available on the other private (not accessible to guests) forums instead of a blank white screen?

<td class="alt1Active" align="$stylevar[left]" id="f$forum[forumid]" >

it should be :

<td class="alt1Active" align="$stylevar[left]" id="f$forum[forumid]">

I had not installed it until now and I have noticed that I get a blank screen for the 2 non public sections when I click on the RSS icon (mods and site news section) so I assume it will only generate an RSS feed for public forums/sections so that would stop it anyway.

But is the above method better than just having a blank screen?

PS: the if condition removes the rss icon so that works, but I'm wondering if it is possible to show up a msg saying that no rss feed is available on the other private (not accessible to guests) forums instead of a blank white screen?

That blank screen is a standard behaviour of vb, not what this template edit handles.

Also there is a minor error in your instructions :

Find this:

Code:
<td class="alt1Active" align="$stylevar[left]" id="f$forum[forumid]" >

it should be :

<td class="alt1Active" align="$stylevar[left]" id="f$forum[forumid]">

so whats the error?

Anyway to replace forum feed URLs for each forum in this mod with feedburner?

If this has been released before, then sorry.

Yer kidding me, right? All the way down to the icons, the size I chose to make them, and icon order? I never released it, but you may have at least given us credit for your inspiration.

You may as well figure this out and release it as well. I used different icons for the Social Groups. Link (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/attachment.php?attachmentid=94217&d=1233935184)

There are many other skins/sites that I have seen using this before I released. Maybe yours was one of them, or maybe not. Its such a easy template edit that anybody can do this, so not sure to whom the credit for the idea goes to.

Thanks for noticing after 3 months though. :erm:

But because you said so, I really don't mind adding your name to the co-auths. Anybody else wants it?

Err yeah, whatever. It's cool man, I don't want anything saying I authored it--I didn't. Just a simple, 'Hey I saw this here and decided to release it.' would have been the way to do it from the start. Didn't mean to point out the obvious.

hum, strangely, i fall on this release months after it's firstpost, and see that there is a "war" about who released something similar before?

Thanks venus, as you say, you saw similar template edit in the past, you can see it here: http://vbenhancer.com/free-features-enhancement/forumbit-tool-icons/446/

... and i don't care if someone release something to mimic one of my addons, my version was created 4 years ago and never released on vb.org, so why bother following the mood of "i made it first"... tsss

adding someone else to co-authors.. come on, nobody helped you create this release.

Everything works great, except with sub-forums and Safari. I'm seeing some wierd display issues - both MAC and Windows.

On the MAC there is some doubling-up of the icons and alignment issues and on Windows just the alignment issue.

Again, this is just with Safari and sub-forums. The regular forums with the controls are rendered fine, even with Safari!

The various flavours of IE, plus Firefox and Chrome don't have this issue, just Safari. I'm on 3.8.2.

Any ideas on how to correct it?

Google's Chrome does not show this properly. Firefox shows fine.
The spanning 100% on the level 2 does not affect the Chrome browser

How do you get this to work properly with Chrome? I see it works fine on other sites with Chrome but it only appears properly for mine in Firefox.

Edit: Problem is fixed after I moved my forums under a parent category.

Works great with 3.8.1 without using the "<td width="100%">". This is on the disturbed style.

EDIT: Is there any way to make it so the forum descriptions dont go underneath the icons, it would look better if there was some sort of allignment to fix that so the icons have nothing underneath and the forum description text just starts from the beginning on a new line

Is there anyway to get the icons to appear either to the left or to the right of the title of the forum area?

So it would be: Fourm (icon) (icon) (icon) (icon) (5 Guests Viewing)

Yes, just insert your code below the following in your forumhome_forumbit_level2_post Template:
<a href="forumdisplay.php?$session[sessionurl]f=$forum[forumid]"><strong>$forum[title]</strong></a>

And remove the DIV tags at the beginning and end.

This should be integrated with vB by default. :D

The only problem I'm having seems to be a common one, my RSS page is blank. I've switched all my syndication settings to On in my vB Options, maybe it just takes some time to kick in?
Who knows, it's still gold.

Installed! :D


Update: I found out that the reason my RSS page is blank is because I have my forum set to private, nothing is guest-viewable. Didn't even think of that at first. :o

If you have some forums set up as links, these icons are not appropriate.
How do I edit the template to not display these icons when the forum is a link?

Also in forumhome_forumbit_level1_post, the icons are not right justified in Firefox.

Don't add - <td width="100%"> and it aligns fine in firefox . Same thing happened with me. I deleted that and it aligned fine.
