Version 2.2.0

The new Activity Stream for VB 4.2.0 is very nice but it feels like it is missing something- and what it is missing is a sidebar. Ideally at some point VB will release a custom sidebar built just for the Activity Stream but until then this quick mod will let you use the built in forum sidebar on the Activity Stream.

As of version 2.0 besides just working on the Activity Stream the mod can now add a sidebar to ANY vBulletin page including forums, threads, groups, albums, who's online, forum leaders, and more. In fact you can easily add the sidebar even to custom pages from custom mods.

New Features
  • Now works on ANY vBulletin Page (except blogs which have their own sidebar)
  • Option to align sidebar with page content or top of page
  • Option to Disable Sidebar Collapse Option (By Usergroup in 2.1.0)
  • Collapsed sidebar state now "remembered" on different pages
  • Option to enable Sidebar by Usergroup
  • Option to disable Sidebar by Forum (if enabled for forums/threads)
  • Option to disable Sidebar in specific styles
  • Options to disable sidebars if mobile devices detected*

NOTE: To enable mobile device detection options you must install the Mobile Browser Detector mod.

Live Demo: Qapla.com Activity Stream

You can enable or disable the Sidebar Anywhere independently of the forum sidebar but they will both display the same content (blocks.)

NEW - If you need to have different blocks on different pages check out this add-on.

You must have at least 1 block setup and active for the sidebar to show.

Unlike most of my other mods this mod is enabled by default upon installation. Be default it is setup to show only on the Activity Stream and register.php pages.

I am aware there is already a mod out there "Everywhere Sidebar" by another coder. This is completely different code and I made this because my "Staff Online Sideblock" mod did not work on Sidebar Everywhere but it does work on this mod.

This mod requires at least VB 4.2.0 to work on the Activity Stream but should work on older VB 4.x.x versions on other pages.

The old version Zip file Sidebar for Activity Stream by BOP5 v11.zip works only on the Activity Stream.

PLEASE READ THE INSTRUCTIONS INCLUDED WITH THIS MOD- THEY ANSWER MOST OF THE QUESTIONS ABOUT HOW TO USE IT.

Looks like it is a little off (6 pixels) due to your custom style.

Go to plugin manager and edit the AS Sidebar Edits plugin.

Find the instance of:

ans chabe it to

Just as an FYI, I thought this was a great idea and I installed it, but I had to make mine inactive and go back to the "Recent Posts" sidebar because the members almost unanimously prefered to see the first sentence of the post in the sidebar like the recent post sidebar.

You can PM me BirdOPrey5, if you want a link to their discussion about it.

Are you saying using this mod changed how your regular forum sidebar worked?

I had exchanged the Recent Post [regular forum] sidebar with the new Activity Stream sidebar. Some didn't like that new format so I went back. They wanted that first sentence to show.

Hi, does this mod work alongside Everywhere Sidebar? I have ES installed but would need your mod for the Activity Stream as ES doesn't work there automatically. Thanks!

I've never tried it with Everywhere Sidebar. I don't imagine there being a problem with any mod through. Doesn't hurt to try.

All new version 2.0 Released.

Now called "Sidebar Anywhere" because you can enable it on *ANY* vBulletin powered page.

Now remembers if it is collapsed or not between different pages.

A bunch of new options.

Please read the instructions included if you have any questions on how it works, the instructions answer most questions.

Is it showing up on any pages? By default it is only enabled on The Activity Stream.

Do you have the forum home sidebar collapsed? It uses the same cookie so it will be collapsed as well.

If you don't have the forum home sidebar enabled it is likely you don't have any forum sideblocks enabled- at least one sideblock must be active for the sidebar to show.

Can you post a link to your forum?
