Navbar Additions + ShareThis

This mod adds 3 features to the navigation bar:
1. ShareThis social bookmarking: ShareThis is a free social networking script tool that enables users to add your site to the top 20 social bookmarking sites, send e-mails & SMS to friends about your site, and post to networking sites like MySpace & Facebook. Also, it provides free tracking & reporting so you’ll know how well your site is being shared, automatic updates with new features, and a JS API to customize its display. It’s similar to AddThis, but provides more features and a better user interface.

2. 7 search fields & links: In the “Search” drop-down menu, this mod adds 2 search fields (“Search Members” and “Search Social Groups”) and 5 search links – Advanced Member Search, Advanced Group Search, Who’s Online, My Posts, My Threads.

3. Highlighting of Notifications: This mod will highlight the Notifications area in the navbar and the Notifications links in its drop-down menu when the user receives: friend or social group requests; private messages, visitor messages, or picture comments that are unread; visitor messages, picture comments, or social group messages that are awaiting approval.

ShareThis Social Bookmarking

Sign up and get your free script at ShareThis: http://sharethis.com/publisher
Support FAQ page is located at - http://support.sharethis.com/publishers
ShareThis API for customizations is at: http://sharethis.com/publisher?type=stapi
Sample ShareThis report page & graphs: http://sharethis.com/example_report

10 Features & Customizations

1. Search headers & links are fully phrased (all phrases start with “navbarMod”).

2. Search fields are CSRF protected and will work even if you have vbAdvanced installed in a non-forum directory.

3. The user’s name will be marked up if you specified HTML in “Username HTML Markup” for the usergroups in Usergroup Manager. Also, if you use vbExperience and a user has awards, those awards will also be displayed.

4. With ShareThis bookmarking, VB’s basic bookmarking is now redundant. To disable, go to vBulletin Options > select Thread Display Options (showthread) > at bottom of page, set “Enable Social Bookmarking” to No and save.

5. You can change the background color of the Notifications area in the navbar. It’s currently set to aqua, but you can change that to any color or even use CSS to add a background image (just make sure it fits without getting cropped or overflowing).

6. You can change the color of the Notifications links in the dropdown menu. It’s currently set to red, but you can change that to any color or even use CSS to style it.

7. You can choose to show all notices or hide links with 0 new notices. Also, you can sort the notifications alphabetically.

8. Two links, Register & Forgot Password?, are added to the navbar login area. The “Remember Me?” checkbox for user login is automatically checked.

9. Private Messages link in the navbar near the Welcome message has a dropdown menu for: Inbox, Sent Items, Send New Message, Track Message, & Edit Folders.

10. A VB Options page is provided to easily set script, styles & colors.

Installation
1. Download the product xml file. Go to Manage Products > Add/Import Product, upload that xml file, set “allow overwrite” = yes, and click Import.

2. Sign up and get your free script at ShareThis: http://sharethis.com/publisher
It’s recommended to set “embeds” to true when setting up the ShareThis script to prevent possible conflicts with embedded Flash. Using the ShareThis bookmarking is optional, but if you don’t, you’ll be missing out on 1/3 of this mod’s features.

3. Go to VB Options > Navigation + Notifications Additions to add the ShareThis script and set the styles & colors.

Update:
Reimport the new product xml file and allow overwrite.
Important: you must revert the navbar_additions template if your version is older than 1.2.0.

Notes:
1. You need to have a new notification in order for the highlighting to take effect.
2. I read all posts for this mod so feel free to post any comments or suggestions.
3. You will be notified by e-mail for future updates if you click “Marked as Installed.” If you find this mod useful, remember to click “Nominate for MOTM.”

You need to have javascript enabled in your browser for the drop-down to work.

Most likely your browser settings are configured wrong.

To enable javascript:
In Firefox, go to Tools -> Options -> Content -> enable javascript.

In Internet Explorer, go to Tools -> Internet Options -> Security -> Custom Level... -> enable active scripting.

Hi we use a couple other mods that seem to vanish when this one is enabled. Can you please let me know how we can keep the others showing as well?

The other ones we use are:

I don't use the ultimate navbar mod (you should consider another one since that one is in the mod graveyard). I do use the display unread posts mod without any problems - are you using the latest version of that mod and did you modify any of its codes or plugins?

Anyways, the solution to your problem is the execution order of the plugins. The default order for VB plugins is 5. One of my plugins needs to execute before most plugins so I set its order to 3. Most likely the execution order of the display unread posts mod is set to 3 or less (you may have changed it or are not using the latest version). The solution is to set the order to 4 or more (go to Plugins Manager) for the display unread posts mod. For ANY mods, whenever another mod is not showing, its most likely an issue with the plugins execution order.

For the ultimate navbar mod, do the same thing for its execution order - set it to 4 or more. If that does not work, then consider using this popular mod ( http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=165519 ) and making your own navbar (it's simple, see navbar tutorials in the Articles forum).

Well, if you disable the ultimate navbar, obviously that mod will not show up.... did you mean the display unread posts mod is not showing up (you said "it".... need to clarify).

I believe that display unread posts mod has several plugins, so you should change the execution order of ALL of its plugins to 4 or more. I use that mod with my mod without any problems.

For the ultimate navbar, I can not help you further because I don't use that mod and that mod is in the graveyard.

To answer your question, Sharethis can be used alone but would require custom coding on your part, which I can not help.

Yes i mean the unread posts is not showing up. I disabled the ultimate navbar, changed the execution order and still it doesn't show.

If you can help me make it work with the unread posts I would really appreciate it. I love your mod, but our members can not live without the unread posts, they are addicted to it.

The vMood mod is different from the Plus Mood mod so it requires a different solution. To enable the vMood mod, you need to:
1. DISABLE the auto edit in the vMood settings page (REQUIRED STEP)

2. add to the navbar_additions template: $vmood_form

ie: FIND:
