EditPost Button Highlight in Postbit
Mod Version: 1.1, by Pod (Coder) Pod is offline
Developer Last Online: Jun 2019 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 4.0.1 Rating: (1 vote - 5.00 average) Installs: 28
Released: 16 Dec 2009 Last Update: 24 Jan 2010 Downloads: 102
Supported Uses Plugins Re-usable Code Translations Is in Beta Stage  

Why?

This little mod tries to address two common problems:

- Sometimes, by mistake moderators might click "Edit", and modify the original post thinking they are quoting the post.

- Users that realize they forgot to say something, and double post instead of editing their first post.


What?

This mod highlights the Edit Post button in the postbit, differentiating it from the rest of buttons and making it easier to notice for everyone. Such highlighting is archived by changing the background color and adding a striking hover effect.

Before vBulletin 4, this was easily archived by replacing the image of the edit button. Now it can't be done that way, since buttons are designed using CSS.


How?
Download the XML file, and import it in your Admin CP.

If you want to change the colors used, to match your style or simply because you don't like my taste, you can easily manipulate this mod using four StyleVars:

- pod_editButton_background: Background used in the edit Button.
- pod_editButton_color: Color for the text in the edit Button.
- pod_editButton_hover_background: Background used in the edit Button when the mouse hovers the button.
- pod_editButton_hover_color: Color for the text in the edit Button when the mouse hovers the button.


Disclaimer
Consider this mod in beta stage. Hasn't been yet tested in an extensive set of environments. If you find any bug, please tell me and I'll try to fix it when I have time. This mod is released as is, with the hope it might be useful to the community without any warranty.

Sorry, but it does work for me. Maybe some other mod is interfering in your installation?
