Thanks for updating this. Literally last week I was looking at the old release and planning to run it on my test forum to see if it would work with 3.8x.

I haven't yet installed this, but I did once use your product so I did have one suggestion that I had from the last time I used it:

Allow for an option to display favorite threads/posts/users on a separate page from the user CP (like /forum/favorites.php) I feel like if a user used this hack fully, it can get pretty cluttered in the User CP main page, especially if a forum has another hack that uses that space.

Thanks again for bringing this back. I hope to have some feedback in the future when I do add this to my forum.

Released Version 2.1.1, which fixes the bugs that have been mentioned in 2.1.0.
To upgrade, overwrite the product and the files.

Looks a great idea. I'm tagging this for future use for sure.

Quick question: Threads, Posts and users can be added to favorites but how about forums ? This would be great as my board has tons of forums and subforums and my users always ask for a better way to jump to what they use most.

It's not a feature at this time. Might be implemented in the future.

I'm just getting a blank page on submitting the favorite...I realise this is a modified template issue as it works in the default but I wouldn't know where to start looking for what's actually causing that...it doesn't seem to make sense as that part of the mod uses custom templates anyway. I can only assume it's something in header or headinclude as all the templates for this mod are in place ok and unmodified. Uninstalling sadly for now, I'll try again some other time and see if I can figure it out.

The hack has a few auto-modifications for existing templates. It is possible that one of those auto-modifications does not work on your custom skin. However, I have no way of telling unless I see it.

The navbar menu does not appear in my skin.

Could you please explain how to manually edit the template?

I did already add a favorite thread for testing.

Since you are running vBulletin 3.8.x, the best solution for you is:

Find a plugin whose title is 'vBFavorites: Initialize', it is located under 'global_start'. You do that using the plugin manager. Find the following code:


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

Replace it with the following code:


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

I think it should work for you unless your style does not have the template hook.

Mine too did not add a link to the navbar.

Curious as to what the link would be so I could add it to the quick links dropdown menu.

Thank you for this hack, I was just asked for something like this, great work!!

I did the previously mentioned fix and now it is working.

I guess my question I asked is pointless, I was thinking there was another page that displayed the info and you could make choices there that I could add a link to in my site navigation, sorry. Great Hack! It will be put to good use, thanks.

Awesome product!

I was wondering though if it was possible to add in user permissions to this? I want only my paying members to be able to use this

Also a suggestion, on the Add Favorites Entry screen, is it really necessary to have the Entry Type:field? Seeing as the field is disabled (at least on the thread entry type), it will only confuse users, which lowers the usability of the product

Thanks!

The link that needs to be added to navbar is as follows (for the default style, don't know if it will work on yours):


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)
