vB Version: 4.1.10 Rating: (7 votes - 4.57 average) Installs: 25
Released: 13 Apr 2012 Last Update: 02 Sep 2012 Downloads: 143
Supported Uses Plugins Auto-Template Re-usable Code Translations

Version 1.13 - Added option to disable by styleid. (You should disable for all mobile styles)
Version 1.12 - Added a bunch new options and bug fix
Version 1.0 - Initial Release

This mod offers a simple postbit option that admins can specify to replace the standard postbit or postbit_legacy template on specific forums or in specific threads.

The simpler more minimalistic postbit is ideal when you want users focusing only on the post content and not avatars, signatures, or other irrelevant details.

The admin can actually turn the display of virtually every "extra" on or off via the mod options.

This mod is designed for VB 4.1.10 or higher. Versions below 4.1.10 will require a manual FILE EDIT.
(Details in the instructions.)


Live Demo: Simple Postbit Demo at Qapla.com

I would see use for this in a "Classifieds" forum, or perhaps a forum open to guests.

Really you could modify the new template postbit_simple_bop5_vb4 and put anything in it. For example if you replace this template with the code form postbit_legacy then you could use this mod to show the regular postbit template on most forums but choose to show postbit_legacy in specific forums or threads. It can really be thought more of as a "General Postbit Override" mod, it just happens to come pre-configured as a "Simple Postbit."

Hello,
May I request a feature for user to choose is he/she posting just a tiny comment or a long text? Therefore we will have a mixed thread with less blank areas when people post just some words.

It just gives me an idea.

For example, we could create special usergroup that's joinable. And enable this mod to work with this usergroup and enable our users to join in it if they want simple postbit. So our users could choose if they want simple or full postbit.

What I would like to see is if the actual user could have control over what he sees in the postbit, is this at all possible? Maybe having two settings in the users profile normal and condensed. The condensed setup by the admin as in your normal settings selecting what he would like the user to see in this setting.

I suppose this could also do the trick for me as well

User control is of course possible, but it's not something I'm going to add to it. It is Re-Usable code- anyone is welcome to add features.

Sorry to ask this but when do you expect the version to be out that will be based on usergroups. Just so I can give those users that want this an estimated time when I may be able to activate this option for them

Nice looking mod. I don't understand why vB doesn't just do this for Groups and Blog comments. I can understand how they want Group discussions to be simpler, but it's annoying that I can't move forum thread posts to a group discussion or vice versa.

how to keep avatars option? or when hover username the avatar is displayed in the popup. thanks

also, would be nice to have an option when creating threads to turn on simple postbit instead of having to cut and paste the ids into options.

Avatars are not an option.
