Latest Version: 1.1

Most people know that Google changes its logo on specific days to honor holidays, birthdays, or other notable events. They call these temporary logos "Google Doodles." Many vBulletin Admins (including myself) like to mark special days by temporarily changing our forum logos as well. Usually this means manually changing the logo style variable on one or more styles and/or overwriting the file on our server with a new logo and having to remember to undo it the next day. Also if you're not up at midnight it is unlikely you actually cover the entire day.

This mod makes scheduling future and reocurring doodles much easier. You simply enter the date you want the doodle to appear, the URL or path to the special logo image, and an optional string of text if you want to override the mouseover text of the logo image as well. (This way say if a user brings the mouse pointer over a special logo the text can reflect the image, such as "Happy Valentine’s Day" for a Valentine’s Day logo.

If you specify the year, month, and day then Doodle will only appear that one time. If you omit the year and specify just a month and day the same doodle will show every year on that date- good for birthdays and holidays that always occur on the same date.

As of version 1.1 you can now specify a custom URL for the logo as well. Users clicking on your logo will be taken to this URL. (Optional)

Compatible with VB 3.7.x, 3.8.x, 4.1.10+, 4.2.x
VB 4.0.0 - VB 4.1.9 will require a manual file edit to work.

In both versions the mod will attempt to override the default logo image stylevariable so if you have a custom style make sure it is using the default code to display the title image- most are.

There is no real demo because it would be unlikely you would see my site on a day I had a specific logo up, however in the screenshots you can see so custom logos I've used.

Obviously you will need to create your own custom doodles and upload them to somewhere before you can use them on your site.

How about a control for max width, height and border...could come in handy when URL is used.
of the logo? I don't see these options happening. You can edit/save the logo to be the height and width you want, even add a border if you wanted.

If you're asking how to get 1 image to show for multiple days you just need to make an entry for each day-

Can this Mod work for multiple different logos?

I use 4 different logos since my forum represents 3 different sports teams. I would like to make each one change specific to their logo. Like a Hallowenn version for the baseball team logo for that forum/style and a halloween version for the football team logo for their forum/style.

Can I do that with this mod?

No, it is only designed to work with one logo at a time.

Can you copy and paste here the text you have in the disable styles box?

I re-tested this on my demo sites and it's working just fine.

What VB version specifically are you using?

Very strange- I just don't know- possibly some other mod conflicting.

If you want to send me admin access via PM I will take a look, if not there is nothing else I could suggest at this point. Sorry.

Oeps, this one has slipped my attention.
I will send you a PM.

However, i have an other suggestion.
Would it be possible to create an array of dates a banner would be shown?
For example, my chrismas banner is from december 16 to december 26.
Now i have 10 lines with my chrismas banner.
