Not Supported Uses Plugins Template Edits  

This is an automated version of these hacks:

http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showt...35#post1202535
http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showt...=127426&page=2

by Starbug & Adrian., all credit goes to them for the original concept. Thanks to Brad Flynn for his help also.

Also: Thank you to BadgerDog for noticing I missed an ID off one of the find instructions


What it does:
Allows you to use a set of custom icons on a per forum basis. No settings needed, the plugin will look for a set of images that meet the conditions I outline in the instructions and display them if they exist. The default VB icons if they don't.

NOTE:
You will need your forum icons to be named like this:

forumx_old.gif
forumx_old_lock.gif
etc...

where x is the forum id number

for the new images to work. If you don't, only the defaults will appear.

Please Remember to make all 4 icons "new" "old" "new_lock" & "old_lock" an error has been reported that if all 4 don't exist, guests and unregistered may not see the default icons.




Instructions:
Use either the installer or the plugin to make a new plugin.
OR create it yourself on the on the forumbit_display hook. With this code:

In forumhome_forumbit_level1_post find:

Because of the similarities between this mod and another, I've removed the template edit that I originally released rather than cause a problem!
May 8th 2007...later in the day?
I had another look at my code vs. the similar code, and with the exception of variable names, the organization of the logic of the template edits is tottaly different...I'm going to re-add the template code and leave it to wisdom of the staff if i'm in error.
I added Plugin Code & Template Instructions to the first post and txt file
May 16th 2007
Added missing ID tag to one of the find instructions, updated txt file also

Wow...the template edit is far too close for me to keep using it...thanks for pointing that out...

The plugin still separates the two releases, so i'm going to release it on its own.

Hi, MThornback Nice job, Well done
Can you please make it more easy to install? i mean just a product to upload and some templates to edit.

I've installed Adrian's product, should i need to uninstall Adrian's product and template edits? before installing this hack.

Thanks.

I don't see a huge difference between installing a product or a plugin...it makes no difference to the function of the mod? Its just the difference between what link you click on and scrolling

If your using mine and his in conjunction...you need to edit his plugin on the forumbit_display hook to the instructions specs and do the template edits...otherwise you can uninstall his and install my plugin (no real loss of function on the front end...and probably recommended for the inexperienced updater rather than editing the plugin)

Update... works fine...

.... but, to get it to work on my server, I had to duplicate and put the exact same GIF files in two different places?

/forum/images/statusicon/

and

/forum/images/import/statusicon/

Is there a reason for this, or have I missed something?

Nice code and if I add the third "locked" icon that matches, it creates a really nice custom approach.

Thanks

Regards,
Badger

Do you direct one of your styles to a custom folder? That would be the only reason it would be affected
