Mod Version: 1.8.0, by BirdOPrey5 (IB Staff) BirdOPrey5 is offline
Developer Last Online: Mar 2019 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 4.x.x Rating: (7 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 44
Released: 12 Oct 2011 Last Update: 15 Jul 2013 Downloads: 247
Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Auto-Template Translations  

Version 1.0 - Initial Release
Version 1.1 - Bugfix for vB 4.1.4 and above
Version 1.7.7 - Critical Security Update
Version 1.8.0 - Added post count setting / Added existing Markup setting

Live Demo: Qapla.com Forums Demo (Gold Version).

The purpose of this mod is to let users pick a custom font (either from a list you specify or optionally, a custom font they choose) to show up wherever username markup is allowed. (The postbit, profiles, who's online, blogs, CMS, etc...)

This is the free version, you can let users choose a font.

The GOLD version allows users to to choose a font, a font size, and/or a font color- each permission with independent usergroup control.
Gold version available at: Qapla.com Forums - Username Color, Size, & Font Selection.

Both versions include a "Live Preview" option allowing users to instantly see the effect of their changes before saving.

Both versions automatically add the options in Settings -> General Settings page, at the bottom, for users with permission.

In both versions all options font (and color/ size in gold) are independently controllable by usergroup permissions, so for example you could let registered users pick a font, mods pick a font AND color, and VIP users pick a font, color, and size.

You can add or remove available fonts from the list in Admin CP.

In the Gold version you can add/remove available colors and you can set a range of allowable font sizes.

See Screenshots for more details.
Screenshots are of free version only. See the GOLD thread, above, for screenshots of GOLD version.

Anyone running VB 4.1.4 to 4.1.8 please see the bug notice in the next post.

It looks like a bug was introduced in VB 4.1.4 where they accidentally re-used the same variable for new query causing this database error.

This is a vBulletin bug, not a bug with this mod.

Currently affected versions are VB 4.1.4 - 4.1.7 and even though it's not out yet, 4.1.8 will probably have it too.

To fix the problem you will have to manually edit your file: online.php

Find the code (around line 277- may vary by version):


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

and delete the line $hook_query_fields so you make it:


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

And save and upload the fixed file. (Save a backup of the original of course.)

This will fix the database error on who's online.

I realize it is a pain to do a manual file edit so I added an option to simply disable the mod on "Who's Online" to avoid this bug.

Just to reiterate- VB versions below 4.1.4 are not affected by this bug.

Small bug in info.txt:

*****COMPATIBILITY******
This mod is tested and working on vB 3.8.6 and 3.8.7 and should work on all VB 3.8 forums, possibly earlier versions as well.
It will NOT work on VB 4.x.

For some reason it looks like the field wasn't added to your database during the install, you could try installing again. If it still gives an error I could give instructions on how to manually add the field to the database.

If the icon was added through Username Markup in Usergroup settings then yes this mod will override it. This mod overrides the default markup in favor of the options the user chooses. It isn't really deleted, but hidden.

Yep...
It's added via Username Markup, and with some CSS styling...

But it is not the end of the world...

Keep creating MODs, it is awesome how you tweak vBulletin!

Thanks.

I know when I was making this (which was actually weeks ago) I considered an option to keep any existing HTML markup present and just add to it, instead of replace it... but I don't remember why I didn't include it. I will have to check it out when I get time, might be something I can add in.

I would need to see the exact error to make a diagnosis...

The "quick fix" is to uninstall or disable for now until I can see the error.

You could UNINSTALL and attempt re-installing as well if you are up for it. If it is indeed the same error your board might have timed out making the database update.

I am seeing it now.
Sorry about that.

The "quick fix" is to go to plugin manager and disable the plugin "Who's Online Query" for this mod, the errors should stop but I still need to fix whosonline so the markup works.
