vB Version: 4.2.x Rating: (6 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 20
Released: 26 Oct 2016 Last Update: 22 Feb 2017 Downloads: 70
Not Supported Uses Plugins Auto-Template Translations  

Overview:

This product allows you to define a message that can be displayed above the ckeditor anywhere new posts are created and edited. We know our users read our carefully constructed rules about as carefully as people read instruction manuals in general. This product can be used to display a message or even list of reminders for proper posting conduct on our sites, which will make it more likely that your users are actually aware of what is allowed and expected when posting.

You may select the forums in which this product is active and the active areas in those forum from showing it only when new threads are created to everywhere new posts are created/edited. You may select certain usergroups to be exempt from seeing the message, and for those users set to see the message, you may decide to stop showing the message once they reach a certain post count, or have started a certain number of threads. You may decide whether the message element is collapsible or not and you may set a maximum height for the message element in case you message takes up a lot of vertical space and you don't want it taking up too much space on your pages.

New Thread/New Reply (Advanced)/Edit Post (Advanced):



Quick Reply:



Quick Edit:



Updates:

Version 1.1:
  • Updated query for thread count to only include the active forums.

Version 1.2:
  • Declared $foruminfo array global in plugins that render custom template.

Version 1.3:
  • Now allows for different messages/titles to be displayed in different forums.

For example, if you edit your message to read:

BEGINFORUMIDS 2,3,4 ENDFORUMIDSMessage 1...BEGINFORUMIDS 5,6,7 ENDFORUMIDSMessage 2...

Then (given that forums with forumids 2-7 are in the "Active Forums"), forums with a forum id of 2, 3 or 4 will display "Message 1..." and forums with a forumid of 4, 6 or 7 will display "Message 2..."

Messages may be stacked as well, that is you can define a message that appears in all forum messages, and then have additional messages that are specific to certain forums that will get added to any previous messages that apply to the forum.

For example, if you edit your message to read:

BEGINFORUMIDS 2,3,4,5,6,7 ENDFORUMIDSMessage 1...BEGINFORUMIDS 2,3,4 ENDFORUMIDSMessage 2...BEGINFORUMIDS 5,6,7 ENDFORUMIDSMessage 3...

Then (given that forums with forumids 2-7 are in the "Active Forums"), forums with a forum id of 2, 3 or 4 will display "Message 1...Message 2..." and forums with a forumid of 4, 6 or 7 will display "Message 1...Message 3..."

The stacked messages will appear in the order in which they are defined.

Block titles work the same way.

Version 1.4:
  • Added setting for header CSS.
  • Added setting for content CSS.

Version 1.4.1:
  • Resolved issue with activity stream.

Compatibility:

Tested and working on VB 4.2.x and may work on all 4.x versions of vBulletin.

I checked the Product Manager and the product settings, and it was fully enabled.

No worries, my friend!

I found the issue, and it turned out it was affecting my sites as well, I just didn't notice. I have already updated your site to the latest version.

You may use HTML in the content, so just enter the appropriate anchor tag there.
OK, great stuff. I can see the new additional settings for CSS, unfortunately I'm not familiar with that sort of thing. Could you possibly give me an example of what I might put in there if I wanted to turn the background of the message box yellow.

Thanks.

For a light yellow, into the "Content CSS" setting, add:

I just noticed something interesting, no big deal, just interesting. I've set the background of the header to be red. Works perfectly when you start a new thread, however if you reply to the thread the background reverts to the default dark grey.

As I say, no biggie, just a curiosity.

The text box remains yellow in both instances.

I am assuming you are referring to "quick reply?" I will look into that, as it is definitely undesirable behavior.
