I integrated the[gEb]Pulldown Menue Hack and a Thank-You possibility as inspired by the [gEb].

You can download the patches in unified diff format (as produced by the GNU tool diff -urN; format is quite self explaining for those who don't have the patch programm (every Linux installation has it, but Windoze-ports exist)).

Please report any bugs, improvements and patches!

Sounds good, but a "normal" install txt would be great, so anybody can understand it.

And please do what Freddie ask for...

You have to use the patch program. diff is only for finding the difference (diff --help and patch --help should give some help text).

If you're unsure about the diff format, have a look at it with a text editor. It should be quite self-explaining if you try to apply the patches manually - that would also be the best if your installation of vBB is customised.

@freddie:
I personally don't run a vbb (I would prefer an open licensed one like phpBB if I had to make a decision), but my boss allows me to contribute the work done on the firm's board. If this is against the forum rules/license I will stop (just EMail me in this case) - as I only post diffs and own code (as public domain) this should be no problem in my eyes.

@The_Sisko:
A patch in unified diff format is basically a very schematic textual description of what has changed. Look at it with a text editor (which is capable of Un*x line endings - not notepad) and you will see that it contains exact information (quite self explaining) about the files affected, the changed lines and what has been altered.
In my eyes this is better than a "normal install text". Besides this I'm not interested in doing too much work for a proprietary product which I even don't have at home.

Retrieve the license information from your boss and insert it into your profile.

Unless there is a particular reason to doubt this person that I missed, what happened to innocent until proven guilty?

BTW, is this a new rule that everyone contributing to this board be licensed? We've hired outside programmers to work on our code before and wouldn't necessarily see the need to share our license with them just to help an outside programmer post their hack here?

Because vb already has a user and password for licensed users. Why not put the board as a password protected area if this is the case?

This person was just sharing a hack. I haven't installed it but it looks friendly and harmless. Why the need for an unfriendly tone by everyone in return to someone giving back to the community by releasing a hack?

If the moderators want to ask for it that's fine with me but then let's leave it to them...

Amen!

Finally someone with that feels the same way as me..

They delete all most post that say about the same thing.
I have people that work for me, and I am not going to give
my lic# and password, just so they do not get the fifth degree
here.

Also, yes I have notice alot of people being asked to enter this
information are people posting hacks they did, What will happen
if they say vBulletin is to rude... and stop posting hacks?

God Bless,

That is the current protocol.

There is no significance between a user asking for help or if the user is being generous and giving you a hack. If the user's post content indicates that they are using vBulletin then they need to enter the license information. If they can not do that because they are "helping" someone than they need to get that person to log into their account and enter the info for them. The password is not stored, it is only used to verify the license's validity.

I can understand that some would like to overlook those that are only posting hacks and not asking for help but that is not an excuse.

OK, so if I understand you correctly the intent here is that people who obviously have VB and post here are invited to show that they have a valid current license. Fair enough.

So you as an officer of VB naturally ask for the license. I just thought the cynicism that followed from other parties wasn't necessary.

Let's give the guy a chance to get his license info in order from his boss or if his boss doesn't want him to have the license, then he will stop posting.

This is just an offer for non vb officers to be more American about it and give the guy his innocence until proven guilty.

Man some people will cry about anything!

Quit crying and enter it in.

I am sick of reading your crap complaining. It isn;'t something that can be or needs to be changed.

goodbye you bunch of losers
