vB Version: 3.7.x Rating: (30 votes - 4.87 average) Installs: 291
Released: 07 Jun 2008 Last Update: 24 Jun 2008 Downloads: 1090
Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Auto-Template Re-usable Code Translations  

Basically the Personal Notepad hack for 3.6 with a security token to make it work for 3.7 and a couple of additions.

This hack will add a personal notepad for your members - a feature you may know from for example Invision Power Board, and which existed for vBulletin 2 as vBPad. For short, members will be able to edit the content of their notepad as they want, storing in it whatever they might feel like.

1 product to install


- A notepad in members' main user CP area where they can type in whatever notes they may want to take down and save them
- Notepad can be resized
- Javascript for allowing users to see when they have exceeded the character limit
- Admin CP options (turn on/off, maximum input length, liquid/fixed width, width of fixed-width notepad, usergroups allowed to use notepad, notepad location)
- No manual template edits
- Fully phrased for easy translation


1. Import product-personal_notepad.xml through the Admin CP.
2. Edit the Personal Notepad options in the vBulletin options if desired. (It is automatically turned on upon installation, so if you want to start using it right away without worrying about the options, you can.)
3. If desired, edit the default message that appears for members who have not put anything into their personal notepads - search for the phrase personal_notepad_explanation in the Admin CP and edit the language of your choice.
4. There is no 4. You're done. Go inform your members of the addition.


4.1: Fixed a bug that caused the notepad to be resized horizontally as well as vertically, potentially stretching the page.
4.0: Added notepad location option in the Admin CP and a default message for members who have not yet edited their personal notepads. Fixed compatibility with 3.7.
3.1: Saved space in liquid-width notepad by putting character counter and textbox size changers in the same line, phrased some stuff that was forgotten and added usergroup limitations in the admin options.
3.0: Tweaks for fitting better with the look of vBulletin, cached template, Javascript counter for character limit, made notepad collapsible, added version history.
2.0: Ported to 3.6, added resizing function and admin CP options.
1.0: Initial release.

Oops, I made a mistake with the template and uploaded an XML file with the old one.

Download the new zip and install that one instead. Sorry about that.

Thanks for the update. I would like to suggest that when the box gets resized that it only gets resized vertically and not horizontally (Like IP.Board does) as it messes up the skin layout. Is there any way to fix that to do it that way?

I like the idea, I'm always using a notepad to save a quick piece of code or something.
I'll keep an eye on it, maybe install later

Great Work. I just realised I was still using the very old 3.5 version and with the recent update to vB3.7 it had stopped working. Just uninstalled and upgraded to this new version and it is working perfectly again.

BTW, is there any way to retain notepad text between versions? None of the members of my board had much of importance stored, but I expect some others do have and wish to retain it.
