Description:
This hack integrates Urdu OpenPad in your vBulletin forum. At the moment this hack is only available in the form of template modification instructions. These changes are aimed at converting specific edit areas into Urdu edit areas. You can use the same procedure to convert any other edit area into an Urdu edit area. Please note that this integration is available for textarea-mode i.e. it does not work for the wysiwyg mode.

NOTE: It has been brought to my notice that users on some forums are having problems logging in with Urdu user names. This is because of the way Unicode data is handled in a non-Unicode forum. I recommend skipping the modifications in the navbar, STANDARD_ERROR, STANDARD_ERROR_LITE, STANDARD_ERROR_LOGIN and the register templates on these forums.

Demo: Urdu Mehfil Forum

Upload files:
Upload the contents of the upload folder to your forum root.

About Urdu OpenPad:

Urdu OpenPad is a javascript component that can convert any edit area (single-line input or mutiple-line textarea) on a web page into an Urdu edit area. It has been tested to work with Internet Explorer 5.5+ and FireFox. It is also usable in Opera 9.0+. The advantage of using Urdu OpenPad is that it allows the users to type Urdu without the need of installing Urdu language support or the Urdu Keyboard. The keyboard layout used by Urdu OpenPad is the Phonetic Urdu keyboard. The following pictures illustrate the phonetic Urdu key mapping used in Urdu OpenPad.

Normal State:



Shift State:



AltGR State:



AltGR key is available on some non-English keyboards and it is equivalent to CTRL+ALT on the English keyboard.

Useful short-cuts:

Switching language mode (Urdu <==> English ) : CREL+SPACE
Zero width non-joiner (ZWNJ) : SHIFT+SPACE

LightInClouds, this hack is not for making an Urdu forum, it just adds an Urdu-editor to your forum, which is only part of the puzzle. I have released this hack since many people were asking for it after I converted my Urdu forum from phpbb to vBulletin. But the majority of these people is interested only in adding an Urdu editor to their forums.

You do not need to apply each template change that I have listed. Only the changes to the headinclude template and the additional css are mandatory.

This mod has no effect on the url-mapping, this is just a modification to the edit areas.

Thank you Saad.

I have already explained that this mod only provides the capability to write Urdu. Storing Unicode Urdu data in the database is a separate issue that is not addressed here. I will write a separate post explaining what exactly is needed for a Unicode Urdu forum.

If you do not want users to enter usernames in Urdu, you can skip the modifications in the navbar, STANDARD_ERROR, STANDARD_ERROR_LITE, STANDARD_ERROR_LOGIN templates.

You just need a vbulletin powered page that contains an Urdu editor and the on-screen keyboard. I will try to gather information about it.
