This modification is no longer available or supported.

This is a very simple modification that I did ages ago when our forum was getting overloaded.

This allows you to display a completely custom page to members when your server load exceeds the limit set in the ACP.

At the moment vbulletin displays a standard 'Server Busy' error message.

Note that server busy functionality will only work if your server supports it. If you don't see server load readings in your ACP homepage then it doesn't.

Note: The supplied "Board_Busy" template is pretty basic, you should really customise it to suit your own forum and needs.

You're having a laugh .....

It's a page that says server busy, the point being you customise it yourself. A Screenshot would not really be very sensible.

Is there a way to add on to this plugin by adding a server busy with a custom message for the SEARCH feature also with usergroup permissions. I have not seen this hack created by anyone yet.

So basically the way it would work is that certain usergroups get a higher search priority then others and when they receive the custom server busy message we can display options for them is this doable?

Nice one If anyone fancies designing a template for us, that'd be cool.

This just intercepts the server busy message and displays a custom page, it's not actually part of any code that checks if the server is busy, so no, it could never do what you want.

Sorry, but that just isn't going to happen, 3.5 is old now and I don't run a copy anywhere.

As it says ;

The supplied "Board_Busy" template is pretty basic, you should really customise it to suit your own forum and needs.

Paul M forgive me but i have an idea.

When the user efforts to enter the forum, it should open but we can put a note at the top of the page when its busy.
