Not Supported Template Edits Code Changes Additional Files  

Hello
although vbulletin 5 has no good options for developers and make the life hard for us , but I decided to go through it and adopt my previouse mods to vbulletin 5 hope you guys like em.


What does this hack do ?

This mod simply lets you put your desired ads or any other codes just in the middle of first post , in each page of a thread .
This mod is updated in such a way that it recognized end of the sentences by ".!?" so it wont break the post content on the wrong place instead it only inserts ads after the sentence , near to the middle of the post.







Known Issues :
  • you shouldn't edit your first post , that causes real problems , and you lose all the contents of first post. (this is solved in version 1.1)
  • Vbulletin 5 AJAX and Post caching sucks! and this might have a little bit conflicts with that system since vbulletin 5 is not written professionally and has many and many bugs and downsides.
  • sometimes it's not exactly in the middle of posts , that's because in logic sometimes there is no real half point , while some posts have even number of lines and some posts have odd number of lines . but it tries to put it to the nearest location to the mid point!

Try not to mention following things :
if you think it's against google TOS then don't install it but keep in mind you can also use it with other network ads , and keep in mind at no point google directly mentioned it's against their TOS to put adsense in between content , so do not insist

Installation Guide:

1- upload the MidPostAds folder to its equivalent folder on your FTP site.
there is only 1 folder: yourwebsite/core/packages/MidPostads

2- goto: Admincp=>Products & Hooks=>Manage Products=>[Add/Import Product]
choose the xml file we provided : MidPostAds.xml , set overwrite to YES (if it's upgrade) and hit "Import"

3- File edit (only 3 lines) : open this file : yourwebsite/includes/vb5/template/nodetext.php
search for this line:
$found = $cache->read(array_keys($this->placeHolders));

and after it add this:
if (class_exists('MidPostAds_Api_node')) {$found = MidPostAds_Api_node::MidPostAdsInsertion($found); }$i=1;

--------------------

now search for this line:
$parsed = $parser->doParse(

and just BEFORE it add this:
if (class_exists('MidPostAds_Api_node')) {$textData['rawtext'] = MidPostAds_Api_node::MidPostAdsInsertionRaw($textData['rawtext'],$i);}$i=$i+1;

--------------------

find this line:
$cache->write($cacheKey, $parsed, 10080, $events);

and remove it or comment it

DONE

you can now go to admincp => Settings => MidpostAds
and change the settings or import your Ads code to be shown.

please keep in mind vbulletin 5 has lots if issues with posts Caching and sometimes needs to refresh the page or wait for changes to take effect

Updates
version 1.0 : Initial release FIXED
version 1.1 : Now it works with vBulletin5 Caching system and without FIXED


Enjoy and please please try not to forget to click as Installed if you liked it you can also Nominate it for MOTM , that's optional but clicking as installed is a must

by the way , vBulletin 5 needs serious updates!

Good to know: This mod doesn't break post content , first it searched for the middle of the post then it looks for end of sentence there based on symbols (.?!) and inserts ADS after that sentence.
