If you use this modification, please >> Mark As Installed, Nominate for MOTM, or Support Developer <<, thank you


What is this!?
vBISpy is an AJAX real-time feed of new posts/threads for your vBulletin 4.0 forum.

Please note that this is currently in Beta. The style is not perfect, but the mod should be fully functionial.


Current Version
2.0.4 - You can find the 3.6.x version, here.


Features flagged for future version(s):
  • looking for suggestions


Will this work on x.x.x ??
Unless otherwise stated, this will work on all 4.0.x versions. This will not work on 3.x.


Sounds cool. How do I install?
  1. Extract the zip, you should have the following directories/files:


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

  2. Upload: (in the below instructions 'yourforum' would be where you have vBulletin installed)
    • vaispy.php to /yourforum/vaispy.php
    • /clientscript/*.js to /yourforum/clientscript/*.js
    • /images/misc/*.gif to /yourforum/images/misc/*.gif


Upgrading
Unless noted otherwise, just upload and overwrite 'vaispy.php'.


Customization
Virtually all the code to customize the page is in the vaispy.php script; there are no plugins, no templates and no phrases. You do not need to do anything further; this should work right out of the box.

If you'd like to block certain usergroups from viewing vBISpy; or certain forums from being displayed - edit vaispy.php

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

In your browser, open the URL:

http://www.yourforum.com/forum/vaispy.php

You can see examples of this at:
  • Anyone wanting to list here as an example?


Note: Neither I nor MPDev claim ownership of this code except for the file vaispy.php - the rest of the files were using 'freely distributable' (although modified to suit vBISpy) sources. As such, you may use these files as you wish, but please do not remove the copyrights.

New colors don't work well on dark colored styles. It needs to use css from styles so we can adjust for style color.

it's working, but I don't know what it doesn't update.. I mean the links in the page stay the same and they don't show new posts and threads in the forum!

Social Group discussion are our most commonly asked-for feature. (permissions dependant)
PMs (obviously just your own!)
Blogs and CMS entries would also be handy.

Ahh, that totally slipped my mind. You can edit this in vaispy.php, find:

#spy_table td .alt1 & #spy_table td .alt2

And you can change it there.

Ok thanks for that I have used rgb 000.102.153 and rgb 000.153.153 and this shows up well on both my light and dark skin.
