ABOUT THIS MOD

My idea was to place a fix characater on the bottom right, which forces guests to register an account, because i was sick of those standard "hello guest, register" mods.

So with this little modification, you are able to display a nice and flashy character to all guests - forcing them to register :)

All examples on the bottom are free to use.

1. Upload your desired image to "/images/misc/register.png" (if you want my samples, feel free to use them, they are all attached below)

2. Open your "css_additional.css" and add the following lines:

div.forcetoregister {
background:url(images/misc/register.png);
background-repeat: no-repeat;
width:300px;
height:200px;
padding:0 5px 3px;
position:fixed;
right:1px;
bottom:0px;
z-index:1;
}

3. Open your "footer" template and add the following line on top:

To show it on every page add this on bottom right before the </body> tag in footer:
<vb:if condition="$bbuserinfo['userid'] == 0"><a href="/register"><div class="forcetoregister"></div></a></vb:if>

4. Mark as installed

5. You are done!

NEW FEATURE: RANDOM IMAGE ON EVERY PAGERELOAD

Since some one at the forum came up with the wish, to have random images on every pagereload, i can now provide you a solution:

1. Add this code to your "css_additional.css" instead of the code provided on top:

div.forcetoregister {
background:url(rotate.php);
background-repeat: no-repeat;
width:300px;
height:200px;
position:fixed;
right:1px;
bottom:0px;
z-index:1;
}

2. Download the file "rotate.php" wich is attached below

3. Upload the file "rotate.php" to your FORUMROOT

4. Open "images/misc" via FTP and create a new folder called "ftr" (Complete path should look like this: /images/misc/ftr)

5. Upload your desired images to the "ftr" folder (supported file extensions are: PNG, GIF & JPG)

6. Your done!

Hi there

Please perform a template search for 'additional.css' via admincp, you should be able to see it there.

Cheers

Hello again!

Is there any way to remove the image on the registration page? The image covers the "Complete Signup" button, when viewed on a mobile device, and stops users from registering!

EDIT: Never mind, I changed the size of the image. But still something to look at.

Change this
<vb:if condition="$bbuserinfo['userid'] == 0"><a href="/register"><div class="forcetoregister"></div></a></vb:if>
to this
<vb:if condition="$bbuserinfo['userid'] == 0 && THIS_SCRIPT != 'register'"><a href="/register"><div class="forcetoregister"></div></a></vb:if>
I haven't tested this on vB5 but it should works :)

<vb:if condition="$bbuserinfo['userid'] == 0 && THIS_SCRIPT != 'register'"><a href="/register"><div class="forcetoregister"></div></a></vb:if>

Works fine on 5.0.5, except the image covers the submit button on the registration page.

You could move the registration button to the left side:


.action-buttons {
text-align: left;
}


I suspect people are having issue with smaller screen sizes. To not display the image on screens smaller than 600px:

@media only screen and (max-width: 600px) {
div.forcetoregister {display: none;}
}
