Hack Support

This hack is now discontinued - this means that while it will remain available for download and use, there will be no further updates, nor will support be provided as the thread is no longer monitored. But not to worry, you can now check out the new 3.8.x version of this hack which will work with v3.7.x, as well as with v3.6.12 (and maybe even earlier versions).

Please click Mark as Installed if you are using this hack.


vBulletin Version Compatibility

This hack can be used with both vBulletin v3.6.x and v3.7.x.


What Does This Hack Do?

Your own vBulletin Boss Key, is displayed in the postbit of each post, so you can quickly click yourself to the safety of legitimate url when the boss turns up, while you are at work.

I have created a custom button for this hack, you can use another button if you like, just remember to rename it panic.gif.

NOTE: Any Panic Button you see in a thread is tied to your profile, even if it is in someone else's postbit (to prove it, disable the Panic Button in the your UserCP)

This hack was created because of a requested here.

If your members report errors when clicking on the panic button, first thing to ensure is that they used the full url (including http://)when typing in the site their panic button will go to, ie http://www.google.com (will work) and not like this - www.google.com (will not work). The second thing to check for, is that the Panic Button - URL Jump box is not empty.


Installation Instructions

In attached .zip (includes instructions for postbit and postbit_legacy templates)

Make sure that you upload panic.gif to the images\misc folder (if multiple styles, then upload to each misc folder)

You need to click Mark as Installed, and if want me to take a look then feel free to PM me your site address, an temp admin user (with permissions for editing templates), also make sure that panic.gif is uploaded to each style's misc folder first, without doing these I cannot help you. I will look when I have time, and even if I have a look, I can not guarantee that I will be able to fix it, if your site is not in English (I only read/write in English), so it is up to you what you want to do.

I like the idea, I think a good addition to this would be to make it an choice to show the button in your options. Not everyone needs a panic button and more buttons are not always popular.

It already does that out of the box, and if I remember rightly, I set it to be disabled by default. A member has to specifically enable this from his/her UserCP options.

Have you enabled it in your UserCP? Because it is set to be switched off for users to start with.

Your postbit template looks fine, it is in the correct place within the template. Are you using postbit legacy or just the normal postbit?

If you have done everything and rechecked the work, then I can not see what is wrong without taking a look at your site.

So, if want me to take a look then feel free to PM me your site address, an temp admin user (with admin permissions - Can Administer Users for editing User Profile Fields and Can Administer Styles for editing templates) without these I cannot help you. I will look when I have time, and even if I have a look, I can not guarantee that I will be able to fix it, if your site is not in English (I only read/write in English), so it is up to you what you want to do.

I PM'ed you about it.

But it was 2 things, not capitalising the Off and On options in one of the profile fields and secondly, you are using postbit_legacy, so the template edit needed it on there.

I have fixed up all 3 styles for you.

Have fun
