Additional side navbar

This modification is in the archives.
vB Version: 3.7.5 Rating: (3 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 72
Released: 21 Mar 2008 Last Update: 21 Mar 2008 Downloads: 791
Not Supported Uses Plugins Template Edits Additional Files  

I am using this post for a test writeup for a modification I am creating on another site.

Despite what category this is in it works with vBulletin 3.0 up to the most recent version of 3.7.
What this does is create another navbar bar as a left column ny inserting $navbar3 in your navbar template.
With very little modifications you can add to, remove or move items around in this additional navbar.

To install the this
1. Download the zipped file.
2. Unzip the file.
3. Import the product-navbar3.xml into your Plugins & Products Manage Plugins.
4. In the footer template find:

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

Below that add;

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

5. In the navbar template find:

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

Below that add:

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

6. Upload the following file into your forum/images/misc/ directory
navbits_dash.gif
7. go into you Admincp and edit the template navbar3 to include the link you want to include in it.

Using this with CMPS
This xml file will work only on CMPS 3.0.0 it will not work on any of the previous RC versions.

If you would like to include this navbar3 on the front page of your CMPS you can import the following file "cmps_navbar3" through your Admincp--> vBa CMPS--> Download/Upload Module.

In adminCP - vBA CMPS Settings - Main Settings - Portal Output Global Variables type navbar3

You'll need to disable the original Navigation mudule or you're gonna have two of them on the page.

Thanks go out to Leo Brazil for creating the CMPS module.

I'm trying to work with alignment and height adjustments...

have tried a few things, unable to get the menu to align with the top of the thread list and below the ad banners, rather than immediately below the navbar

also, trying to get it to display at 100% height, and not be cut-off partway down the page...

have it inactive at the moment until I get some resolution on these....kewl mod tho!

That was what I was going to suggest. I have ever tried it because when I saw how it looked in the usercp I thought it was just not right.

It is interfering with another hack you have in the site. That is why it is getting cut-off partway down the page. The side navbar is inside the original navbar template and that is probably why you can not get it to display below the banners. This could probably be done but I would have to set up a test site with all the hacks you have in your site to figure out how to get it to work. I am sorry but I do not have time to do something like that.

I even tried this...

http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showp...7&postcount=32

it DID fix my footer & tables but my forums continue to fall outside of the borders.
I installed the same style you are using in my test site tonight and everything worked fine with the side navbar. So that rules out the style being the problem.

I noticed when I logged into you forums tonight under the test account you gave me and you have a bunch of hacks installed in your site. I saw the following hacks installed in the top part of you forums:
My Profile Url
Hideout XSPF Music Player
Donation Goal
LCD (Liquid Crystal Display)

I have a very good feeling that it is one of these hacks that is causing the problem you are having. I am leaning towards the Donation Goal or the LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) hack that is doing it. If you can you might want to disable those two in your plugins if they are plugins and then see if the sidebar works properly. I am not trying to come of rude when I say, I can not spend a whole bunch of time installing a bunch of hacks in my test site to try to figure out which hack you have installed that is interfering with this mod.

Looks like you figured out what was causing the problem. I have to admit though I did not think that was the one that was causing it.

Any suggestion on how to move it to the right side instead of the left? We're looking at using it for some ad space, but don't want to have them all on the left side where they would cripple the site for PDA/Phone users .

Thanks for a quick/clean solution for a sidebar, we were really glad to be able to get rid of CMPS in the next generation of our site, and this helps quite a bit :: thumbs up ::

Well I would say post the sidebar stuff after the $forumhome_markread_script but before the "whats going on" area in a page.

The people mentioning they want a collapsible bar, its not difficult to set up a collapsible div for it, if you need the info I could PM it. I have a collapsible banner box on my forumhome page

here

needs an update but heres a SS


That can added easily but enough spamming, nice product wish I saw it before I made my own sidebar lol

Thanks
