What Does This Hack Do?

This is an update to my 3.8.x version of this hack, designed to work with vBulletin v4.0.x.

A very simple hack to display your real name in your profile and postbit (or postbit legacy), just like here at vBulletin.org.

If no real name is entered, then it will not display in the postbit (or postbit legacy).

DEMO: View it in action here.

This hack was created because of a request by Hannan here.


Limitation with this hack

People keep asking for usergroup permissions for this hack.

While this would easy to implement, what people fail to realise is that User Profile Fields are not controlled by usergroup permissions at all, and even if usergroup permissions were added to this hack, the User Profile Fields would still be viewable by members even if they do not have permissions to use them.

User Profile Fields are either viewable by all or viewable by none, this is how they were implemented in vBulletin by design, there is no in between with User Profile Fields.

So, I will not be adding usergroup permissions to this hack.


vBulletin Version Compatibility

This hack can be used with vBulletin versions 4.0.0 - 4.2.0.

For the v3.8.x version of this hack, which will also work with v3.7.x and v3.6.x - check here.



Hack Support/Feature Requests

No, from what you have posted, the first piece of code that you said you see, already has that in it, even though it is not needed anymore. So the mod should work fine as is. Are you trying to use this in a custom skin by chance?

<plugins>
<plugin active="1" executionorder="5">
<title>Real Name In Profile and Postbit</title>
<hookname>postbit_display_complete</hookname>
<phpcode><![CDATA[global $vbulletin;
if (!empty($post["field{$this->registry->options['realname_profile_field']}"]))
{
$template_hook['postbit_userinfo_right_after_posts'] .= '<dt>' . $vbphrase['real_name'] . '</dt> <dd>' . $post["field{$this->registry->options['realname_profile_field']}"] . '</dd>';
}]]></phpcode>
</plugin>
</plugins>

That is not correct; if you have installed the latest version of this hack, you do not need the global $vbulletin statement added, as this hack now accesses the registry object directly and you do not need to globalise anything. It is just likely that the real name field was empty and once it was filled it displayed (that is how it was designed to work).

And, sir, if you will read the following post, I pointed out the same thing after I saw the code he was referring to. The old code did need that variable, but the new code doesn't, yet it is still there.
