Hack Support

This hack is now discontinued - this means that while it will remain available for download and use, there will be no further updates, nor will support be provided as the thread is no longer monitored. But not to worry, you can now check out the new 3.8.x version of this hack which will work with v3.7.x, as well as with v3.6.12 (and maybe even earlier versions).

Please click Mark as Installed if you are using this hack.


vBulletin Version Compatibility

This hack can be used with both vBulletin v3.6.x and v3.7.x.


What Does This Hack Do?

Your own vBulletin Boss Key, is displayed in the postbit of each post, so you can quickly click yourself to the safety of legitimate url when the boss turns up, while you are at work.

I have created a custom button for this hack, you can use another button if you like, just remember to rename it panic.gif.

NOTE: Any Panic Button you see in a thread is tied to your profile, even if it is in someone else's postbit (to prove it, disable the Panic Button in the your UserCP)

This hack was created because of a requested here.

If your members report errors when clicking on the panic button, first thing to ensure is that they used the full url (including http://)when typing in the site their panic button will go to, ie http://www.google.com (will work) and not like this - www.google.com (will not work). The second thing to check for, is that the Panic Button - URL Jump box is not empty.

In attached .zip (includes instructions for postbit and postbit_legacy templates)

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

weird...any idea ?
You need to use the full url - http://www.google.com is good, www.google.com is not good (your site will think it is a local url).

I have replied to your PM with the solution.

Updated hack to v1.0.2
- added instructions for postbit_legacy
- added note about using full url and not partial one (will cause errors).

Note: silver surfer does not need to update to this version, as I already made the changes for him.

Update to v1.0.4, I introduced a typo into the v1.0.3 instructions that was causing the problem.

mblb,

Thanks for allowing me to use your forum to fix the hack.

It is all working on your forum now, and it is the latest version v1.0.4, so you do not have to upgrade to the new version, although I would download the zip file for future reference.

You can now remove the temp admin account you PM'ed me

If you have done everything and rechecked the work, then I can not see what is wrong without taking a look at your site.

So, if want me to take a look then feel free to PM me your site address, an temp admin user (with admin permissions - Can Administer Users for editing User Profile Fields and Can Administer Styles for editing templates) without these I cannot help you. I will look when I have time, and even if I have a look, I can not guarantee that I will be able to fix it, if your site is not in English (I only read/write in English), so it is up to you what you want to do.
