You may not even have noticed, but the forum sidebar does not work for IE6 at all in vB4.0.x. This, obviously, is bad for ad revenue, or if you offer important or convenient information there. Second, if you show ads on a per view basis, you may get problems if you allow collapsing: The ad is actually fully loaded, but then hidden from the view of the user.

What does this mod do?
  • Lets you choose to disable the collapse feature of the Forum Sidebar.
  • Can enable Forum Sidebar for IE 6
How to install it (2 easy steps)?
  • Step 1: Do the template edits given below (if you're using TMS, skip this step!)
  • Step 2: upload product file

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

The two settings for this mod can be found at:
AdminCP->Settings->Options->Forum Sidebar and Block Options
Enable for IE6: yes/no
Allow collapsing: yes/no

Please note:
I do not support any styling or functionality issues the sidebar may have or cause in IE6.

### Don't forget to click install! ###
(No support if you don't)

All we need now is the ability to display the sidebar across all forum pages instead of just forumhome...

Very nice, thank you!

One thing I noticed is that there's no config for cndgarage otherwise very useful.

In regards to disabling collapsing, I find it only works on the forum homepage. When you have the "Everywhere Sidebar" mod installed, this one doesn't cover the collapse button on those pages.. Does anyone have an idea on how to get that working?

But enabling for IE6 works? I should be quite surprised, since my mod only is executed on forumhome. Sorry, I have not looked at that other mod, so I don't know how it works and whether it could be made to collaborate with mine.

Simple and effective, thanks :D

i always get a white page when this mod is enabed and it says:

Fatal error: Class 'vB_BlockManager' not found in...blabla

What could it be?

Greetings and thanks for this helpful mod,

just open the plugin declaration in your vBulletin installation and insert
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

. This loads the missing class and everything works fine again.
I don't know what caused the error but somehow this class must have been loaded at someplace else in a former VB version.
