Hack Support

This hack is now discontinued - this means that while it will remain available for download and use, there will be no further updates, nor will support be provided as the thread is no longer monitored.

Please click Mark as Installed if you are using this hack.


vBulletin Version Compatibility

This hack can be used with v3.6.10 and v3.7.x. This has not been tested with earlier versions of v3.6.x, but should work.

This hack has only been tested with vBulletin Blog v1.0.5. I have not tested with it with vBulletin Blog v2.x.x (and will never be as this hack is no longer supported).



What Does This Hack Do?

Your own vBulletin Boss Key, is displayed each blog entry and blog comment, so you can quickly click yourself to the safety of legitimate url when the boss turns up, while you are at work.

I have created a custom button for this hack, you can use another button if you like, just remember to rename it blog_panic.gif. You can have a different button for each style, as long as each one is named blog_panic.gif.

NOTE 1:My Panic Button hack needs to be installed first for this hack to work (this is an add-on hack to that). It will also give you an overall panic/boss button solution.

NOTE 2: Any Panic Button you see in a blog entry or blog comment is tied to your profile, even if it is in someone else's blog entry or blog comment (to prove it, disable the Panic Button in the your UserCP)

NOTE 3: This is still a template hack (and it's parent hack is a product), due to the fact that there are no template hooks where I need them to be, and as a consequence manual template edits are required because I can not automate this hack.

This hack was created because of a comment here.

Get firefox and use tabbed browsing. Or just close the browser window....

Welcome to the 21st century.

Come on guys, if you have nothing sensible to post to a thread, then please do not waste time doing so. This is a support thread, not a general chatter or opinion thread.
