Random Tips Revisited

Demo link in my sig. Updated Random Tips show on every page below navbar but vbacmps page, I added it as a module. Either refresh page or surf the site.

I can not release an updated version of this modification due to the fact it is not marked as re-useable code. The author can not be reached, I have tried.

Lets begin.

First you will need to download this modification, import product (ALLOW OVERWRITE)to see what it looks like now.
Then edit it with the following edits & import product again.

Open Product, TDT - Random Tips, using wordpad.

Thats about it. It looks a whole lot better with my edits.

README

Description
---------------------------------------------------------------
Displays random tips on most pages of your board when $randomtips is added to templates

Installation
---------------------------------------------------------------
1) Go to ACP / Plugins & Products / Manage Products and import product-tips.xml

2) Again, in admincp/vbulletin options/Random Tips
Once there its really self explanatory. Follow intructions on how to add HTML tips at top of page & adding extra tips at bottom of page.

3) To get the tips to show on your pages.
If you would rather not show tips below navbar on vba pages, skip the following navbar edit;
Add $randomtips to the template you wish to show tips on.
Example: navbar(paste $randomtips all the way at the bottom to show tips below navbar) this will show tips on every page on your board.

----------------------------------------------------------------

If you are using vba CMPS, you will need to add randomtips without the $ to vba CMPS/Default Settings/Main Options/ Portal Output Global Variables Section- Failure to do so will result in no tips showing on any vba CMPS pages.
Product needs to be installed as normal for this to work.
Tips show on vba pages are the same tips as shown on other pages.

----------------------------------------------------------------

If you would like to show a vba module for random tips, download & install the randomtips module.
To install module for vba CMPS,
vbacmps/download upload modules/ click browse, select the module you downloaded, select style you wish to add module to, set permissions & click submit.. Center column is best location.

----------------------------------------------------------------
I wrote in the template to allow members to show/hide tips. You will need to create a new profile field. (Remember the profile field number, you will need it later.)

Again, in admincp/User Profile Fields/Add New User Profile Field

Profile field Type: Single-Selection Radio Buttons

Title: Random Tips

Description:If you wish not to see the random tips below navbar select Hide. ( Add whatever you want)

Options: Type in Show , hit your enter key & type in Hide (Each option needs to be on seperate lines.)

Field Required: I set mine to no, but you do what you will.

Field Editable by User: Again, I set mine to yes, but you set it the way you want.

Private Field, Field Searchable on Members List & Show on Members List, all set to no.

In the Display Page Section, click the drop down & select Options: other
Click save.
----------------------------------------------------------------

Now you need to add the profile field number to the randomtips template at the top of the template. You will see <if condition="$vbulletin->userinfo['fieldxx'] == Show"> change the xx to your newly created profile field number & click save.

Inform your members to go into their usercp/edit option, on bottom of page to set it to hide if they wish not to see tips. Default is set to show.
Thats it...Enjoy
Enjoy!

If you use this modification with the edits I provided please click the to the left. Thank You!

Demo link in my sig. Updated Random Tips show on every page below navbar but vbacmps page, I added it as a module. Either refresh page or surf the site.

Killer post Eddie, thanks, will implement your changes soon. But quick question, that thread preview on your board, the one where it pops up a box when you hover your mouse over the thread link, how'd you do that?

Glad you like it, thanks. It was quite boring before the changes I made.

The hover over is jQt Suite (jQuery Tools Tooltips & Overlays)
