vBStatus - Facebook Style Status Updates (v5) (vB 3.x)
Mod Version: 5.3, by Attilitus (Contributor) Attilitus is offline
Developer Last Online: Nov 2018 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 3.8.x Rating: (10 votes - 4.50 average) Installs: 118
Released: 04 Jun 2010 Last Update: 08 Aug 2010 Downloads: 768
Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Template Edits Additional Files  



Compatible with 3.x
vBStatus allows your users to update their status to tell other members what they are doing/thinking at any given time. A user's status is displayed under their names in their postbit, in their User Profile, and anywhere else you choose!

User's can edit their status quickly and easily via AJAX.

Features and Configuration options include:
  • Admin Option: Turn modification on/off
  • Admin Option: Ban usergroups from updating their status.
  • Admin Option: Set a max character count for status messages.
  • Admin Option: Set the number of characters of a status message displayed per line. (Word wrapping will occur for status messages longer than this defined value.)
  • Admin Option: Define a standard status prefix to be appended to the start of all status messages after the username. (i.e. Attilitus is doing something.)
  • Admin Option: Define a default status for users with a blank status.
  • Admin Option: Define the character set used for encoding status messages. (The default value of this option should work for most character sets.)
  • Feature: Status messages may be updated in-line.
  • Feature: All languages and character sets are supported. (Most, if not all, should work with the default encoding option. Others may require some configuration in the admin options.)
  • Feature: Users may press the Enter key to confirm their status update.
  • Temporarily Deactivated in v5: Admin Option: Allow defined usergroups to modify other user's status updates. (For moderation purposes)
There are 4 template edits for this hack. The installation readme file will guide you through the entire process.

Special Update Instructions for users of vBStatus v4
This version of vBStatus was mostly written from scratch. Please note that there are two features that are missing from v5 that were present in v4: the ability of members of certain usergroups to modify the status updates of other users, and the ability for users to edit their status in a popup window. If you need those features, don't upgrade yet.

The upgrade process that I suggest is:
  • Import the new product xml file. Make sure that you check Allow Overwrite.
  • Remove all template code in templates: postbit, postbit_legacy, memberinfo, and header that is between <!--BEGIN VBSTATUS--> <!--END VBSTATUS--> tags.
  • Delete your current vbstatus folder and all of its contents.
  • Install vBStatus v5 as instructed in the installation instructions text file included with the modification.

Version 5.1
  • Support for non-english characters has been added.
  • A small modification was made to the installation script to make it more robust.
Upgrade Instructions: Reupload all files (allow overwrite), and reimport the product (allow overwrite). No additional template edits are required to for the upgrade.


Version 5.2
  • Users may press the Enter key to submit their status.
Upgrade Instructions: Reupload all files (allow overwrite). No additional template edits are required for this upgrade. You may reimport the included product, if you desire, to update the version number to 5.2

Version 5.3
  • Important security update to fix a cross site scripting exploit.
Upgrade Instructions: Reupload all files in the upload folder to your forum root, and allow overwrite. It is not necessary to re-import the product xml file.

Note: The files available in this thread will always be for the most recent version of the modification.

If you previously used vBStatus in vB 3.x your member's old status messages will be preserved.

: Does not work on vB 3.8.7 ! When click on EDIT, Nothing happends, think JAVASCRIPT problems,,,, It would be great if there was a fix...

Thanks for such an amazing Idea, but because I know this has been working for some, at least the developer should at least answer all the questions on here..

This is the line, which I think have some problems:
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

'

Hope it will get fixed, and hopefully soon..

Works for me too.

Have you recently made any changes on your board? Upgrade, new plugins, etc?

Serious problems with this plugin if admins and mods cannot enforce rules and delete spam by editing status messages. We temporarily mitigated this by limiting changes to members with > 10 posts.

Hey Attilitus!

Can you please tell us how to get the moderation code working? Did you ever get it working? We looked and it was not obvious how to fix this and make it so we can moderate it properly.

Please.

Thank you.

PS: Also, where do we change the width of the edit / input box for when we update a status message? Thanks!

i am sorry for bumping this old thread but.., i still didn't mange to give admins the ability to edit other users status..
if anyone did mange to do that.., Please share it with us!

----------------Edit----------------
i manged to replace the :

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

with :

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

to make admins able to see the "Edit" and "Save" buttons.., However, If they edited anyuser it would be changed to them.
Example (As an admin) .. :
if i changed my status to : "Is good." and saved it.. every thing is fine.
but when i want to change someone's else status.. Like from "has no status." to "Is fine." (or anything else..)
That user's(which i changed his status) Only appears(his status) as i changed it to. (The "Is fine." status) until i reload the page.. then his status changes to "has no status." and my status changes to "Is fine." (As if i edited my own status!)
So.., is there anyfix for this?
i think that it is aproblem in the "vbstatus_class.php" file.. :

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

However.., i am not sure.. :/
Thanks in advanced.

vBStatus Stopped Working - Cannot Edit Messages

Hmmm.

FYI: vBStatus recently stopped working in our forums.

By "stop working" I mean that users (or admins) cannot edit status messages.

Has anyone else experienced this problem?

I just checked my site and have noticed the same thing.

I haven't checked on my site yet, but I'm wondering if a php update or something else server-side broke it. I know I haven't changed anything on my site or added/removed any plugins/hacks. Check yours and see if you can find the root cause.

We reinstalled, etc.... but the plugin did not work; so we disabled.

It's a shame, as our users liked this plugin a lot.

Seems like an AJAX problem to me.
