View Full Version : Move What's Going On Box

28 Jul 2005, 21:50
This is a very simple modification but here it is.

1. In your FORUMHOME template find <!-- what's going on box -->

2. Copy the code from <!-- what's going on box --> to <!-- end what's going on box -->

3. Delete the code from where it is now and then paste it below $navbar (beginning of template). Of course you do not have to put it under the navbar but it is the most practical location.

That's it!

And don't forget to click install (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/vborg_miscactions.php?do=installhack&threadid=93092)

It looks like a very nice change to forumhome. However, event though i kind of understand your instructions, they may seem a tad bit difficult for others :-x

Yeah it's my first mini-mod so I am new to writing instructions and such but any advice would be greatly apreciated.

To be honest, im not to sure. Im not familiar with the templated in vb3.5. Upload the forumhome template in a .txt file and i'll try and help you.

Instructions are quite clear, because the whats going on box is going to have different code in it for every forum besides the ones that haven't changed from default.

If they don't understand, that's what this thread is for. ^_^

That would be the chatbox lite hack.

good idea but on my forum i added a new usercp option for my members to display it at the bottom or the top which is there choice... u can make it a template so if u need to change it there is only 1 spot to change or just make to copy the code in the forumhome and put it in both locations if u plan not to change it that much and ofcourse put the if statements around it.

If I'm not mistaken you just copy the code to your forumdisplay, showthread, etc... templates just like you did for forumhome.

only thing i can think of is to copy the code and then delete what you don't want and leave what you do at the bottom...do i make sense? although i have tried and been unsuccessful...but i think i messed up...think you would have to rename the box possibly..in other words you would have keep the <----whats going on----> in both spots but rename one...would this be possible you think?
