Developer Last Online: Jun 2020 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 4.2.x Rating: (6 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 21
Released: 26 Oct 2016 Last Update: 22 Feb 2017 Downloads: 71
Not Supported Uses Plugins Auto-Template Translations  

Overview:

This product allows you to define a message that can be displayed above the ckeditor anywhere new posts are created and edited. We know our users read our carefully constructed rules about as carefully as people read instruction manuals in general. This product can be used to display a message or even list of reminders for proper posting conduct on our sites, which will make it more likely that your users are actually aware of what is allowed and expected when posting.

You may select the forums in which this product is active and the active areas in those forum from showing it only when new threads are created to everywhere new posts are created/edited. You may select certain usergroups to be exempt from seeing the message, and for those users set to see the message, you may decide to stop showing the message once they reach a certain post count, or have started a certain number of threads. You may decide whether the message element is collapsible or not and you may set a maximum height for the message element in case you message takes up a lot of vertical space and you don't want it taking up too much space on your pages.

New Thread/New Reply (Advanced)/Edit Post (Advanced):



Quick Reply:



Quick Edit:



Updates:

Version 1.1:
  • Updated query for thread count to only include the active forums.

Version 1.2:
  • Declared $foruminfo array global in plugins that render custom template.

Version 1.3:
  • Now allows for different messages/titles to be displayed in different forums.

For example, if you edit your message to read:

BEGINFORUMIDS 2,3,4 ENDFORUMIDSMessage 1...BEGINFORUMIDS 5,6,7 ENDFORUMIDSMessage 2...

Then (given that forums with forumids 2-7 are in the "Active Forums"), forums with a forum id of 2, 3 or 4 will display "Message 1..." and forums with a forumid of 4, 6 or 7 will display "Message 2..."

Messages may be stacked as well, that is you can define a message that appears in all forum messages, and then have additional messages that are specific to certain forums that will get added to any previous messages that apply to the forum.

For example, if you edit your message to read:

BEGINFORUMIDS 2,3,4,5,6,7 ENDFORUMIDSMessage 1...BEGINFORUMIDS 2,3,4 ENDFORUMIDSMessage 2...BEGINFORUMIDS 5,6,7 ENDFORUMIDSMessage 3...

Then (given that forums with forumids 2-7 are in the "Active Forums"), forums with a forum id of 2, 3 or 4 will display "Message 1...Message 2..." and forums with a forumid of 4, 6 or 7 will display "Message 1...Message 3..."

The stacked messages will appear in the order in which they are defined.

Block titles work the same way.

Version 1.4:
  • Added setting for header CSS.
  • Added setting for content CSS.

Version 1.4.1:
  • Resolved issue with activity stream.

Compatibility:

Tested and working on VB 4.2.x and may work on all 4.x versions of vBulletin.

If I do not make any mistake?
I see this line of Block titles, when forumids is only in messages field and not in titles.

Hmm...when I have no forumids in neither the "Reminder Message Block Title" nor the "Reminder Message Content" I still see the title as expected.

What do you have for the two phrases?

Why you must see the title if there is no forumids in both messages?
Probably some thing I do not get it

I try many combinations, its not one to write it

Test i made just now:

No forumids no title, blank as default
I see this in all selected Active forums by the mod.
none both.jpg

If i put forumids in title, i see the above image only in the forumids i have put, it is as supposed to be.
But i see this image in all other selected Active forums by the mod,
forumids title.jpg



So, if there is forumids in title. I must not see this image to all other forums that are sellected but there ids are not in the field of titles
forumids title.jpg




Just remind that i work this as it is here

If you want a block title to show up, you either have to have a block title for all active forums (that is, without forumids in the phrase), or you have to have a title defined for all the active forums by using forumids in the phrase.

<li>Have you posted your entire question in the post itself?</li>
<li>Have you shown what work you've already done on the problem, and exactly where you're stuck? (It's perfectly fine not to know how to start, in which case please tell us that!)</li>

You need to edit the phrase "markfl_newthreadmessage" so that it pertains to your site.

Something in this mod is affecting the Activity Stream . I've narrowed the issue down to this particular mod .

Default Activity Stream provides detail entries such as

20-02-2017, 08:47 AM
Username started a thread blah blah blah blah in Subforum

I've discovered that with the mod enabled we get

20-02-2017, 08:47 AM
Username started a thread blah blah blah blah in

( relevant phrase in vB "x_started_a_thread_y_in_z"

<a href="{1}" class="username">{2}</a> started a thread {4} <a href="{3}">{5}</a> in <a href="{6}">{7}</a> )

Can you help Mark - thanks in antic ...

I have this product running on my local dev site and a live production site, with no effect on the activity stream. I would need to come to your site to investigate. Please PM me the login credentials to an admin account, including a link to your site.

It's in and working, nice mod. Two things that I'd like to be able to do though, perhaps you can tell me if they're possible and how to do them.

1. Change the background colours of the heading and text boxes.
2. Insert hyperlinks into the text box.

Other than that, I'm happy with it.

You may use HTML in the content, so just enter the appropriate anchor tag there.

I logged on to your site using the credentials you provided, and I see no issues with your activity stream.
