Navbar Additions + ShareThis

This mod adds 3 features to the navigation bar:
1. ShareThis social bookmarking: ShareThis is a free social networking script tool that enables users to add your site to the top 20 social bookmarking sites, send e-mails & SMS to friends about your site, and post to networking sites like MySpace & Facebook. Also, it provides free tracking & reporting so you’ll know how well your site is being shared, automatic updates with new features, and a JS API to customize its display. It’s similar to AddThis, but provides more features and a better user interface.

2. 7 search fields & links: In the “Search” drop-down menu, this mod adds 2 search fields (“Search Members” and “Search Social Groups”) and 5 search links – Advanced Member Search, Advanced Group Search, Who’s Online, My Posts, My Threads.

3. Highlighting of Notifications: This mod will highlight the Notifications area in the navbar and the Notifications links in its drop-down menu when the user receives: friend or social group requests; private messages, visitor messages, or picture comments that are unread; visitor messages, picture comments, or social group messages that are awaiting approval.

ShareThis Social Bookmarking

Sign up and get your free script at ShareThis: http://sharethis.com/publisher
Support FAQ page is located at - http://support.sharethis.com/publishers
ShareThis API for customizations is at: http://sharethis.com/publisher?type=stapi
Sample ShareThis report page & graphs: http://sharethis.com/example_report

10 Features & Customizations

1. Search headers & links are fully phrased (all phrases start with “navbarMod”).

2. Search fields are CSRF protected and will work even if you have vbAdvanced installed in a non-forum directory.

3. The user’s name will be marked up if you specified HTML in “Username HTML Markup” for the usergroups in Usergroup Manager. Also, if you use vbExperience and a user has awards, those awards will also be displayed.

4. With ShareThis bookmarking, VB’s basic bookmarking is now redundant. To disable, go to vBulletin Options > select Thread Display Options (showthread) > at bottom of page, set “Enable Social Bookmarking” to No and save.

5. You can change the background color of the Notifications area in the navbar. It’s currently set to aqua, but you can change that to any color or even use CSS to add a background image (just make sure it fits without getting cropped or overflowing).

6. You can change the color of the Notifications links in the dropdown menu. It’s currently set to red, but you can change that to any color or even use CSS to style it.

7. You can choose to show all notices or hide links with 0 new notices. Also, you can sort the notifications alphabetically.

8. Two links, Register & Forgot Password?, are added to the navbar login area. The “Remember Me?” checkbox for user login is automatically checked.

9. Private Messages link in the navbar near the Welcome message has a dropdown menu for: Inbox, Sent Items, Send New Message, Track Message, & Edit Folders.

10. A VB Options page is provided to easily set script, styles & colors.

Installation
1. Download the product xml file. Go to Manage Products > Add/Import Product, upload that xml file, set “allow overwrite” = yes, and click Import.

2. Sign up and get your free script at ShareThis: http://sharethis.com/publisher
It’s recommended to set “embeds” to true when setting up the ShareThis script to prevent possible conflicts with embedded Flash. Using the ShareThis bookmarking is optional, but if you don’t, you’ll be missing out on 1/3 of this mod’s features.

3. Go to VB Options > Navigation + Notifications Additions to add the ShareThis script and set the styles & colors.

Update:
Reimport the new product xml file and allow overwrite.
Important: you must revert the navbar_additions template if your version is older than 1.2.0.

Notes:
1. You need to have a new notification in order for the highlighting to take effect.
2. I read all posts for this mod so feel free to post any comments or suggestions.
3. You will be notified by e-mail for future updates if you click “Marked as Installed.” If you find this mod useful, remember to click “Nominate for MOTM.”

To manually edit the navbar template (version 1.3.5), go to Style Manager > Edit Templates > navbar:
FIND these 2 comments:
<!-- breadcrumb, login, pm info -->
<!-- / breadcrumb, login, pm info -->

REPLACE the content between those 2 comments with everything in the navbar_additions template and save. Remember to set “auto template navbar?” to ‘No’ in the Navbar Notices, ShareThis, Links settings in VB Options.


Version 1.2.0: new dropdown menu for private messages (see attachment).

No catch - it's absolutely free and no advertising! Check out the links to ShareThis and see for yourself.

Version 1.1.0 JUST RELEASED!
New Features: No more template edits! You can now specify settings in VB Options for highlighting colors, hiding links with no new notifications, and inserting the ShareThis script.

To update, reimport the new product xml file and allow overwrite.
Important: you must revert the navbar_additions template (only if updating from first version 1.0.0).
Then go to VB Options > Navigation + Notifications Styles to add the ShareThis script and set the styles & colors.

Are you posting in the right thread? I don't know how my mod can cause the DB error on uninstall. I tested it myself - uninstalled mod 1.2.0 from VB 3.7.2 and it uninstalled cleanly without any errors. This mod doesn't modify the database, so it shouldn't have caused your error - you can look at the xml file yourself to verify.

MySQL Error : Unknown column 'language.phrasegroup_global' in 'field list'
As your post shows, your 'language.phrasegroup_global column does not exist. That column is a standard, default column for vBulletin that you should have in your DB.

i tried to repair the database in many ways but nothing worked, therefore i installed the 3.73 and imported a backed up database. i will try to install your mod tomorrow and i will tell you what happens, but the reason which caused me to put all the blame on your mod is that the instant i clicked uninstall i got the error.btw your mod is really cool.

thanx man ur mod is working perfectly on 3.7.3, but i will never uninstall it. Maybe it caused the error because last time i forgot to check yes in (overwrite all) when i was installing it.

Glad you're not having any problems. I'm sure my mod didn't modify your DB.... would appreciate it if you could edit your first post to say that the problem was fixed.

FYI: next time you could just restore the DB column that you somehow lost instead of doing a reinstallation of VB.

Arrow Version 1.3.0 Just Released

Just Updated: 1.3.0 Added option to sort notifications alphabetically.
To update, reimport the new product xml file and allow overwrite.

Optional: in addition to sorting the notifications alphabetically, you can give them a more uniform look: go to Languages & Phrases > Search in Phrases, search and change notifications phrases to: “Awaiting Approval:…”, “New….”, “Social Group….”. See screenshot for example.
