vB Version: 4.2.0 Rating: (0 vote - 0 average) Installs: 0
Released: 15 Nov 2012 Last Update: 30 Jan 2013 Downloads:
Not Supported  

THIS ADD-ON IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE AND IS NOT SUPPORTED

This add-on makes the text portion of postbits collapsable and allows the selection and arranging of what profile fields will be displayed in postbits.


Features
  • Select which profile fields to display in postbits.
  • Select which standard vB fields to display in postbits.
  • Set the order that the fields will be displayed in.
  • Detects new profile fields and adds them to the postbit order display for selection.
  • Detects deleted profile fields and removes them from the postbit order display.
  • Does not add any database queries to the vB frontend.
  • Adds Local Date and Local Time options to the available fields.
  • Detects and adds Photopost Gallery option to the available fields.
  • Does not affect mods that add to the proper postbit hooks, but those items can not have their order changed.
  • Support for other mods to add their postbits to this add-on so the order they are displayed in can be changed.
  • After editing a post or posting a quick reply, the entire postbit for that post is shown to the member that edited/posted the post.


NOTE: This add-on contains the Local Date/Time code by the late Rob Hindal (Boofo). If a large number of people think this should be removed from this mod I will remove it.

This add-on will not work with any mod that forces the use of the standard vB postbit_legacy template, or with any mod that requires manual editing of the postbit templates.

Known Mods that do this:
  1. [DBTech] Advanced Post Thanks Like v3.0.3 [Lite] (Due to double Blog This Post link)
  2. Info box on Postbit (may work with edits to that mod)
  3. Country Flags - Postbit & Postbit_Legacy. vB 4.0.x (Inc GO : (Due to manual edits)

A live demo of this can be seen on my site: http://snogssite.com


* INSTALLATION *
-----------------------
1) Upload the contents of the 'upload' folder to your forum's root.
(If your forum's location is http://www.example.com/forums/, the root is /forums/)

2) Import the product XML file (product-pbcollapse.xml) into the Product Manager in AdminCP.

3) Go to ACP->Postbit Collapser->Postbit Display Order and set the fields you want displayed.
The Postbit Collapser will be in the Thread & Posts area of the ACP Menu
Be sure to save the options even if you don't make any changes.
4) Go to ACP->Postbit Collapser->Collapser Settings and turn the system on.

If you want to use a different graphic for the expand/collapse button in postbits change these buttons:

/images/buttons/collapse_40d_collapsed.png

Yes it does I have it running on my site and this is one of the cool features of it. It also has a postbit if you have photopost installed linking to that members gallery and this is a very cool feature, something I have wanted for a long time. Overall this is a very cool mod and it really give a finished neatness to the thread view and can save a load of space if you have a long postbit with a lot of info in it.

nhawk thanks for all the effort put into doing this mod really appreciated. I think having Robs code in it and mentioning it is a very nice tribute to Rob

It will not only make your current custom profile fields available to be included in postbits, it will also detect when new custom profile fields are added and make those available too.

EDIT: I've attached a screenshot of the postbits containing the results of a radio button, single selection menu and checkbox custom profile field values. All types of custom profile fields can be used in postbits with this add-on.

Also other coders can include their postbit info so it's position can be changed in the postbit display. If not included, it will display in it's normal position and can't be moved. Instructions for coders are included in the .zip file.

It can't change the order of another mod's postbits and they will appear where they normally would in the postbits. It says that in the description in the first post...

Does not affect mods that add to the proper postbit hooks, but those items can not have their order changed.

If you want the post thanks stats to be included so it's postbit order can be changed, you need to contact the author and have them follow the instructions in the Programmers_ReadMe.txt file included with the postbit collapser.

As a matter of fact, the Programmers_ReadMe.txt file uses the Post Thanks mod as an example of what is needed to add that info to Postbit Collapser.

The timing of this modification is uncanny. I popped over here just now to see if this mod existed or if I needed to write one for my site. This mod is much appreciated.

I do not think I will do any of those.

The purpose of this mod is to make the postbit area as compact as possible while still leaving the graphic information above the text area complete in all forums, threads and posts.

To add those defeats the purpose of the mod.

If you set 'Automatic Entry Into The Template' to 'Yes' in that mod, it shows properly. There's no need to add any code to the postbit_collapse_legacy template. (tested with version 4.1.4 of that mod)

EDIT: Discovered it only partially works. Added that mod to the list of known mods that force the use of postbit_legacy
