Sports Team Icons v2.3 for vbBux / vbPlaza


About This Addon:
This allows you to purchase icons of your favorite sports team and display them in your users postbit. Currently only MLB, NBA, NFL, NHL, NASCAR, Premier League, NCAA, MLS, & FIFA World Cup 2006 icons are available for purchase. This hack adds a new category for sports teams. In the new category are the different leagues that are currently available to purchase. By default I have enabled the "Can Change Always" portion so all of your "bandwagon" fans can come back and change their icon depending on who their favorite team is that week. To remove teams, they will need to go back into the store where they purchased the icon and select remove to remove the icon, it is up to you to decide if you want to allow a refund. To add extra icons to a certain sport (maybe some old school logos) just name the logo in the same manner as the current ones and upload to that leagues folder. It's that easy thanks to the great coding of CMX.

Pre-requisites:
***You must have vbBux / vbPlaza version 1.5.7 or higher installed in order for this to work!***

Installation & Upgrade Instructions:
  1. Upload all the files in the Upload folder to your website.
  2. Import the .xml file using the Plugin System located in your AdminCP.
  3. Perform the required template changes below.

Required Template Changes:
Postbit & Postbit Legacy

You can change the category settings for this addon in AdminCP >> vbPlaza Options >> Manage Categories >> Sports Teams. You can change the item settings for this addon in AdminCP >> vbPlaza Options >> Manage Options >> Sports Team section, just pick the league you want to edit. Make sure you set your usergroup permissions for this. If you uninstall vbPlaza / vbBux for any reason you will need to re-install this addon as well.

v1.1 Changes:
  1. Added NASCAR store item - Thanks LadyJo for the icons!
  2. Changed the icon names - Make sure you delete the MLB, NBA, NFL, & NHL folders in the /images directory before uploading this. If you don't you will have every icon available in your store twice!
  3. Updated the postbit/postbit legacy code - Make sure you update the code in your postbit/postbit legacy with the new code above.

v1.2 Changes:
  1. Added Premier League store item - Thanks Gizmo5h1t3 for the help with this!
  2. Changed the icon names (Again) - Make sure you delete the MLB, NBA, NFL, NHL, & NASCAR folders in the /images directory before uploading this. If you don't you will have every icon available in your store twice!
  3. Added code to strip underscores and hyphens when displaying the team name in the store drop down and when hovering over the icon in the postbit. Now 3-Dale_Earnhardt.gif will show up like 3 - Dale Earnhardt. Follow the example of the names if you have added your own custom icons to certains sports. Only use the underscore (_) and hyphen (-) along with the letters and numbers. Do not use spaces.
  4. Changed postbit code - Make sure you edit your postbit template with the new code. I did this so when future updates come out, you don't have to keep editing your postbits. If you don't like the sport you can simply disable it in vbPlaza Options >> Manage Options. Once there find the sport and go disable it.
  5. Fixed problem with templates not being cached.
  6. I cleaned up the code and a few other things that I can't think of right now!

v2.0 Changes:
  1. Upgraded to work with vbplaza 1.5.0+
  2. Added NCAA store item - Great work with the icons lordofgun!
  3. Changed the postbit/postbit legacy code - I know I said no more template updates, but this one is kinda out of my control. This change should prevent any further updates to templates.

v2.1 Changes:
  1. Added MLS store item - Thanks for the icons The Ottoman!

v2.2 Changes:
  1. Added FIFA World Cup 2006 store item - Thanks for the icons soulface!

v2.3 Changes:
  1. Updated to work with vbPlaza version 1.5.7+.

***Thanks to CMX_CMGSCCC for the amazing vbBux / vbPlaza hack!
***Thanks to lordofgun for the suggestions regarding this hack and the NCAA icons!
***Thanks to LadyJo for the NASCAR Icons!
***Thanks to Gizmo5h1t3 for the Premier League info!
***Thanks to The Ottoman for the MLS icons!
***Thanks to soulface for the FIFA World Cup 2006 icons!

If anybody has any small nascar .gifs with transparent backgrounds (the drivers car numbers) let me know and I will add nascar to this.

Or if anybody has any other sports they want added let me know and I will work it into the hack (it will be helpful if you have the icons already).

I would seriously like British Football teams, but you've requested that we already have the icons for them if possible, so i'm going to try and get hold of them before requesting it properly.

Just an FYI,

I am considering an update to this where you can place larger icons in the signature area and/or keep the ones in the post bit. It will be fairly easy and will only require slight modifications to make it work.

Does anybody have an interest in something like this?

I use the postbit, and what I did was re locate the Teams and Gifts over to the left side under the user title. The postbit top section was getting bit fat with all the stuff on the right side.
