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 3.8.x version of this hack which will work with v3.7.x, as well as with v3.6.12 (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 in the postbit of each post, 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 panic.gif.

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

This hack was created because of a requested here.

If your members report errors when clicking on the panic button, first thing to ensure is that they used the full url (including http://)when typing in the site their panic button will go to, ie http://www.google.com (will work) and not like this - www.google.com (will not work). The second thing to check for, is that the Panic Button - URL Jump box is not empty.

In attached .zip (includes instructions for postbit and postbit_legacy templates)

In the .txt file it says

<!-- panic button by jdsinclair -->
<iif condition="$bbuserrinfo[field5] == On"><a href="$bbuserinfo[field6]"><img src="$stylevar[imgdir_misc]/panic.gif" border="0" alt="Boss Key" /></a></if>
<!-- end of panic button -->


Should there be two 'i's at the if statment?


This also is not working for me. I tried editing the iif ti if and the $bbuserrinfo to $bbuserinfo but it is still not working, anyone help?

Interesting. I didn't notice the two "i"s, but my code looks identical to yours and it works fine for me on a 3.6.8 board.

<!-- panic button by jdsinclair -->
<iif condition="$bbuserrinfo[field19] == On"><a href="$bbuserinfo[field20]"><img src="$stylevar[imgdir_misc]/panic.gif" border="0" alt="Boss Key" /></a></if>
<!-- end of panic button -->

As I do not have vBlog at the moment, I can not make this work with it.

At some point in the future I be purchasing it, but for now it will go unsupported, so unfortunately unless someone with it allows me admin access to their installation to work out how to do it, then it will have to wait until I do have it.

I have managed to get access to someone's blog install to knock up an add-on hack to this hack for the blog now - Panic Button for vBulletin Blog

Enjoy

Make sure that you upload panic.gif to the images\misc folder (if multiple styles, then upload to each misc folder)

If want me to take a look then feel free to PM me your site address, an temp admin user (with permissions for editing templates), also make sure that panic.gif is uploaded to each style's misc folder first, without doing these I cannot help you. I will look when I have time, and even if I have a look, I can not guarantee that I will be able to fix it, if your site is not in English (I only read/write in English), so it is up to you what you want to do.
