vBStatus - Facebook Style Status Updates (v5)
Mod Version: 5.3, by Attilitus (Coder) Attilitus is offline
Developer Last Online: Nov 2018 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 4.0.3 Rating: (22 votes - 4.64 average) Installs: 219
Released: 02 Jun 2010 Last Update: 08 Aug 2010 Downloads: 1266
Not Supported DB Changes Template Edits Additional Files  

Compatible with 4.x.x
vBStatus allows your users to update their status to tell other members what they are doing/thinking at any given time. A user's status is displayed under their names in their postbit, in their User Profile, and anywhere else you choose!

User's can edit their status quickly and easily via AJAX.

Features and Configuration options include:
  • Admin Option: Turn modification on/off
  • Admin Option: Ban usergroups from updating their status.
  • Admin Option: Set a max character count for status messages.
  • Admin Option: Set the number of characters of a status message displayed per line. (Word wrapping will occur for status messages longer than this defined value.)
  • Admin Option: Define a standard status prefix to be appended to the start of all status messages after the username. (i.e. Attilitus is doing something.)
  • Admin Option: Define a default status for users with a blank status.
  • Admin Option: Define the character set used for encoding status messages. (The default value of this option should work for most character sets.)
  • Feature: Status messages may be updated in-line.
  • Feature: All languages and character sets are supported. (Most, if not all, should work with the default encoding option. Others may require some configuration in the admin options.)
  • Feature: Users may press the Enter key to confirm their status update.
  • Temporarily Deactivated in v5: Admin Option: Allow defined usergroups to modify other user's status updates. (For moderation purposes)
There are 4 template edits for this hack. The installation readme file will guide you through the entire process.

Version 5.1
  • Support for non-english characters has been added.
  • A small modification was made to the installation script to make it more robust.
Upgrade Instructions: Reupload all files (allow overwrite), and reimport the product (allow overwrite). No additional template edits are required to for the upgrade.


Version 5.2
  • Users may press the Enter key to submit their status.
Upgrade Instructions: Reupload all files (allow overwrite). No additional template edits are required for this upgrade. You may reimport the included product, if you desire, to update the version number to 5.2

Version 5.2.1
  • Extra white space will no longer appear in the status update input field.


Version 5.3
  • Important security update to fix a cross site scripting exploit.
Upgrade Instructions: Reupload all files in the upload folder to your forum root, and allow overwrite. It is not necessary to re-import the product xml file.


Note: The files available in this thread will always be for the most recent version of the modification.

If you previously used vBStatus in vB 3.x your member's old status messages will be preserved.

Allan,

That hack implements similar functionality. Aside from that, they are not related. You can judge the differences for yourself, I have not installed the other modification.

The other one doesn't require any template edits - it's just an upload and install. Any possibility of implementing a similar experience here?

Hey! Installed and tested and working very well on my forum! Thanks for this one, I really like it.

Just wondering how to make the text of the 'status update' to be bold?

SliceofLife,

You can make the status update bold by making a simple modification to the template.

Find <!--BEGIN vBStatus--> in your postbit/postbit_legacy/memberinfo templates and find the first <div> tag in the block. Replace that <div> tag with <div style="font-weight:bold">.

You should be able to figure out how to make other simple edits like this by looking at the template code.

War.Frog,

I am not planning on making these template edits automatic. They are simple, and would make the installation process less transparent.

~Tim

Thanks so much for this Attilitus.

Working very well on my forum, no problems at all. Cheers. Very happy, great job - well done!

I too, had a look at the other status update mod and I preferred this one's functionality over the other one, and the members like the ease of use.

BlackHat,

As mentioned before, the status messages are never permanently saved. Once you update your status, your old status is gone forever. If I ever decide to implement some kind of aggregate feed, like the one you described, then I will store a history of past status updates in a table.

Are the phrases still hardcoded? It would be nice to move them to language part of admin panel, to be able to translate them Thnx.

ivanp,

Phrasing seems like a good idea, but I don't think it is all that important. Assuming that the forum administrator understands English, translating the sparse phrases in the templates should not be difficult. I believe the only words visible to the user are "Edit" and "Save," and the rest of the words (like the default status and status prefix) are already customizable in the admincp.

We just installed this but it doesn't seem to be working. Where do we go to edit our status?

It is enabled and installed.

Any help?

STORMS,

Did you read the instructions text file included with the modification? There are 4 template edits that you need to make.
