This modification is in the archives.
vB Version: 2.2.x Rating: (0 vote - 0 average) Installs: 35
Released: 19 Feb 2002 Last Update: Never Downloads: 19
Not Supported  

Note: This hack will only work on PHP 4.0.5 and higher. Sorry for all the others (anyone still using these old versions?!).

Anyhow, this is a great little hack, and most importantly very very fun for the masses.
It gives your users the ability to use {bbusername} in their post, and it will mysteriously be changed into the viewer's username when he reads the page.

Demo:
FireFly <!-- auto name hack -->


You can detect this hack is in action by viewing the HTML source of the page. You will see <!-- auto name hack --> next to the name in the source.

You can this hack used in action here as well:
http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showt...threadid=35192

This hack also contains a small optimization to vBulletin, which removes a lot of calls to str_replace() and replaces that with only one (which is why this hack only works with PHP 4.0.5 and up).

Have fun, I know you will.

Yes I'm absolutely sure. I did exactly as I said and it worked. It sounds like another hack of yours is causing the problem. I don't have any other hacks so that may be the difference.

Excellent.
It didn't work to start with, but I made the changes pointed out by Zaphod (here) and it works a treat.

Be interesting to see how the guys react (here)

Ah ha, I found it. Ok, here it is:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

The microstats and the bbusername hack interfere with eachother. To fix this, what should I do? Should I change the $i=; value on them or something? I'm not very good with this, but someone should know a way to set them each as their own thing.

Nice response time, man! That area of the code now looks like this:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

So the Microstats works again, but the {bbusername} just shows up as a blank space in the post..... =/ Is there anything I need to change in the lower portion of the code (beginning with "while ($var=.....").

Btw, I also had to get rid of one of the $'s before microstats....

Make sure $bbuserinfo is still in the global line in dovars().

Waait a second. It only works in the title, not in the post itself.... It doesn't show up in the post, but if you click Edit then it has the username inserted there.... But it still doesn't work in the post.

i tried this, but now the joke works only for admins, they see their username instead of {bbusername }.

all other users now see the variable instead of their usernames?

is there a possibility to limit the posting of replacements only to special usergroups?

Its not working by me...
I am on 2.2.5... I did remove the line according to Smachol... and I did try the =bbusername= in functions.php and when posting.

I do not get the unsername displayed... just {bbusername}

Is it to send an email too?
