Display Options Above Threads - as seen on vbulletin.org

This modification is in the archives.
vB Version: 3.6.7 Rating: (6 votes - 4.67 average) Installs: 81
Released: 15 Jul 2007 Last Update: 27 Jul 2007 Downloads: 720
Not Supported Template Edits  

This template mod will streamline and relocate the "Display Options" dropdown menus to the top of your threads list on forumdisplay, as seen here at vbulletn.org in the modification areas.

As part of this move, we'll also change the look of the "Active Users"/Moderators panel remaining at the bottom of the page. (Screenshots of both sections are below.)

This modification should work on vB versions 3.6.5 - 3.6.7 PL 1.

Important: There are two different versions of the instructions: one for a default setup, and one for people using the excellent Thread Prefixes mod by Mystics. Please make sure you choose the correct version for your setup!

(Of course, if you've installed or applied other mods that have altered the forumdisplay template, you may need to adjust the instructions accordingly.)

Update on May 10, 2008: I'm happy to say that the 3.7.0 version of this mod is now available! Note that there's now only one set of instructions in 3.7.0, since Mystics prefix mod no longer applies. If his mod is ever updated, however, I'll be happy to include a new batch of instructions. Especially 'cause I prefer his prefixes to vB's!

Update on July 27, 2007: New version fixes issue with AJAX inline editing thread titles. If you've already installed the older version, please use these instructions to correct the problem. Thanks to Skavenger for the heads-up.

Live Demo: Working Demo at My Site. (This will show you the Display Options section; I don't use the "Active Users" part of the mod.)

This is my first template modification release, and I hope it's helpful. Many thanks to vbulletin.org for the inspiration, not to mention years of providing an amazingly helpful community.

Thanks and you're welcome! If anyone has any problems with the instructions, or if the code doesn't work with your setup of vB, please let me know. I've never released anything (aside from a tiny code fix many years ago) and I wasn't certain if the directions were clear enough.

Cosmetic Fix Needed

This is a much neater look and presentation search threads feature. How can I make the thicker line below the drop down menus the same size as the line oabove the menus?

Hi Junkie! That table uses the tborder class, as do the tables surrounding it. This does create a double-thickness line where the tables meet.

Here's a fix for you.

1. In your admin cp choose Style Manager and in your desired style select All Style Options and click the "Go" button.

2. Scroll down to the Additional CSS Definitions section. In the second textbox, add the following:


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

Save the CSS.

3. Now click Edit Templates and go to your FORUMDISPLAY template.

SEARCH FOR:


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

CHANGE TO:


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

(Note that the only change we're making here is changing the table class to the new displayoptions class created in step #2.)

4. Save the FORUMDISPLAY template.

This should remove the top and bottom borders for you. I've attached a screenshot of what this will look like on a default setup. Hope this helps!

Kira, thank you so much for this. See as how you're familiar with the Thread Prefix MOD, could you take a look at a post I made regarding a fix for this modification?

You're welcome, Junkie. I'm no prefix expert but I've given that a try over there.

Ouch, you're right! Stupid mistake on my part, and after posting this will update the instructions accordingly. Luckily it's an easy fix if you've already made the above template changes. The problem was that there's a duplicate table ID of "threadslist."

Simply open up FORUMDISPLAY and FIND:


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

REPLACE WITH:


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

Save and that's it. Basically all we're doing is removing the id="threadslist" from that section.

My apologies for the error and inconvenience! Many thanks to Skavenger for pointing this out.

Hello Kira, does this mod generate prefixes? or unless you have the thread prefix hack you wont get a prefix section when the Display Options is moved above a forum's threads?
