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. But not to worry, you can now check out the new 3.7.x version of this hack, as it also works with v3.6.10 (and maybe even earlier versions).

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


vBulletin Version Compatibility

This hack can be used with both vBulletin v3.6.x and v3.7.x.


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.

This should be used in conjunction with my Panic Button hack to give you an overall panic/boss button solution.

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.

NOTE: 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)

This hack was created because of a comment here.


Installation Instructions

Weird, I've followed the mod instructions to the letter but there's no panic button image in any of the blogs.

The mod for the forum threads works perfectly, not entirely sure why the panic button isn't showing in the blogs, any ideas what I might look for if I may have made an err in applying this please mate.

I found the problem, the instructions need updating mate.
where you have:
Quote:

<!-- panic button for vbulletin blog by jdsinclair -->
<if condition="$bbuserinfo[field5] == On"><a href="$bbuserinfo[field6]"><img src="$stylevar[imgdir_misc]/blog/blog_panic.gif" border="0" alt="Boss Key" class="inlineimg" /></a></if>
<!-- end of panic button for vbulletin blog -->
should be:

<iif condition="$bbuserinfo[field5] == On"><a href="$bbuserinfo[field6]"><img src="$stylevar[imgdir_misc]/blog/blog_panic.gif" border="0" alt="Boss Key" class="inlineimg" /></a></if>
<!-- end of panic button for vbulletin blog -->
This is so for all of the blog template edits ;-)

If any other people have issues, then I will point them to your post, until I have had a chance to test this my self, as the original instructions worked for me, so once I have confirmed this problem I will update the instructions.

Thanks for the feedback and solution :)
