vB Version: 3.7.5 Rating: (12 votes - 4.92 average) Installs: 226
Released: 02 Feb 2008 Last Update: 26 Feb 2008 Downloads: 1029
Not Supported Uses Plugins Translations  

Description:

This modification will let you define a name for your external files replacing the Unknown Location message, usually in Who's Online & Members Profile pages.

Tested With:
  • vBulletin 3.6.8
  • vBulletin 3.7.0 Beta 4
Changes:
  • [v1.0.2] fix a minor bug and support for multiple queries.
  • [v1.0.1] added a 3rd optional parameter to identify the page with a query string.
  • [v1.0.0] first release.
Installation & Upgrade Instructions:

Upload the product & configure the settings for the product Unknown Location.

Notes:

The location of your files are relative to you web root.
With multiple queries, using the standalone file simultaneously, you must ensure that the standalone file comes first:

/file.php:My File
/file.php?do=hello:My Hello:do=hello
/file.php?do=hello&do=goodbye:My Goodbye:do=goodbye

The change is made in the "online_location_unknown" hook. If your page doesn't call this hook, nothing will be changed. To know wich hooks are called, run your board with debug mode on.

How to Use:

File Name:Page Name:Optional Parameter for Query String

/portal.php:Portal
/forum/misc.php:Misc Page
/forum/misc.php?do=hello:Hello:do=hello (using 3rd parameter for misc.php?do=hello)
/forum/misc.php?do=thanks&do=something:Thanks:do=thanks (using 3rd parameter for misc.php?do=thanks)

Question vbadvanced HTML Created Pages BUG?

vbadvanced HTML Created Pages BUG?

I use vbadvanced to create pages that call html file.

So a page has a url as: /index.php?pageid=about

So I have added 4 pages to this mod like this example:
/index.php?pageid=about:Public Page - About Us

The problem is the only page to show when viewing Who's Online is the last page listed in the mod's settings.

So if I have 4 pages inputed into this mod only the bottom one shows even though a user is viewing another page.

So to be real clear:

/index.php?pageid=about:Public Page - About Us
/index.php?pageid=features:Public Page - Features
/index.php?pageid=rules:Public Page - Rules
/index.php?pageid=privacy:Public Page - Privacy Policy

No matter what page a visitor is viewing they all list as "Viewing Public Page - Privacy Policy" because its last on the list!

So how can I fix this? Is it a bug? Is this mod supported by anyone?

HELP PLEASE! THANKS!

I haven't tested it since I don't have have html pages, but you probably need to use the 3rd parameter, so you should write it like this:

/index.php?pageid=about:Public Page - About Us:pageid=about
/index.php?pageid=features:Public Page - Features:pageid=features
/index.php?pageid=rules:Public Page - Rules:pageid=rules
/index.php?pageid=privacy:Public Page - Privacy Policy:pageid=privacy

Thanks for the try but unknown location still displays with these changes.

I have come to the conclusion that this mod does not work for vba created pages! I would call that a massive bug. Too bad the developer is MIA!!!

Ok ... I just added a testpage html and the location according to members online became what I put in the unknown location plugin

myfile is /cmps_index.php so I added:

/cmps_index.php?pageid=test2:Test 2:pageid=test2

But before that line I do have the stand alone file first, so maybe that's what missing? That you should just place as the first line:

/index.php:Home

Thumbs up Fixed!

WOW after all this time I think we finally found the problem!

/index.php:Home
Setting this as my first line seems to have worked!

HUGE THANKS!

I have to be honest the directions posted by the developer severely lack clear instructions. However, lost is the dev's post is this:
Notes:
With multiple queries, using the standalone file simultaneously, you must ensure that the standalone file comes first:
That is still poor and not clear! Whatever your CMPS homepage is titled you must have that listed first if you use this mode to point to multiple pages which are created by VBA.

So in my case the solution to get this mod to work is:

Sorry about bumping.

This hack is still working pretty good in vb 4 for those forums without any SEO or rewrite stuff.
