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.

So you just uninstalled the plugin and than reinstalled it and now it shows on all pages correctly?

it works on 4.2.4 with a small exception - in Groups, it breaks the page. when I add the sidebar, it creates a new column for the Groups - Create Group, so the last 2 columns overlay.

has anyone else encountered this?

Thanks.

Locate the setting labeled "Custom Scripts & Templates" and there you can enter the script and template names on which you want the sidebar to appear.

Hi Mark,

I am listing all groups. For ex:
http://********.com/group.php?do=grouplist
or
http://********.com/group.php?cat=1

I added all these to Custom Scripts & Templates

group|socialgroups_categorylist
group|socialgroups_categorylist_bit
group|socialgroups_category_cloud_bit
group|socialgroups_group
group|socialgroups_grouplist_bit
group|socialgroups_groupmodlist_bit
group|socialgroups_groupsub_bit
group|socialgroups_overview
group|socialgroups_updatedgroups_bit

but no luck. We're running 4.2.4.

What can be the issue?
Thanks.

You previously posted that when adding to the "group" script, it breaks the page. Is that what you're getting now?

No. At those 2 links I mentioned
http://********.com/group.php?do=grouplist
or
http://********.com/group.php?cat=1

the sidebar doesn't show at all.

I have a user who on an IPad can see the forum (vb4.2.5) layout fine with sidebar on right - but when they login a big empty space appears to the right of the side bar and everything gets smaller to accommodate? Any ideas please?

Thanks in advance!

NOTE: forget about this - he has managed by using his fingers to stretch the screen! OMG!

Is there a way to set this so the sidebar collapses automatically if the minimum page width is reached? For example, if the page width is only 650 px, the sidebar collapses?

Hello.
I use this mod in vb 4.2.5 and works fine, but today, I view some issue.
I have set/changed the "forum_sidebar_width" in style variables to 360px (for example) and change this value.
Also, appear the new value in other pages that on set that appears the sidebar, for example, in Showthread.
Well, yesterday I change my style for Christmas style (style download from this site and work fine with vb 4.2.5).
If change this value (forum_sidebar_widht) only change in index forum) but the other pages (showthread, new thread...) appears with the old value, 360px, for example, I set this value to 240px, appears with 240px in index forum, in showthread, new reply...etc...appears with 360px.
Also I have this problem (today I made some tests) with style Hallowen (also downloaded of this site and works fine in vb 4.2.5).
I deduced the problem is in the style, but I search in all variables for view what are the problem, and I don't view for what reasson I have this issue.
I wait explained well.
Thanks in advance.

The problem isn't the mod, the problem is your settings for each of the New styles.

Go to Admincp> Styles and Templates> Style Manager> Halloween (or whatever you called it)> Style Variable Editor

Find:
Forum Sidebar Width- change to the size you desire
vbblog_sidebar_width- change to the size you desire
Calendar_sidebar_width- change to the size you desire
profile_sidebar_width- change to the size you desire

repeat with the christmas theme you installed as well.

After type this question, yes, I think, the problem isn't in the mod, problem is in the style...

Actually, I use a Christmas style I review all you indicate:
Forum Sidebar Width-
vbblog_sidebar_width-
Calendar_sidebar_width-
profile_sidebar_width-
I compare with my default style, all widhts are the same in my default style and the christmas (or hallowen) style. Only, I don't view or I don't have: vbblog_sidebar_width
But I have this, in index page, if I change the width, this change, but in others pages (showthreads for example) don't change, not in my default style (in default style works fine).
I think I need ask in thread of style.

Thank you very very much for your attention and help in your reply
