Not Supported Uses Plugins Auto-Template Translations  

This product is the result of a request from hugoroger to:

Say I wanted to add a custom blurb as an admin on the bottom of a specific thread to show on all thread pages for that specific topic only. How hard would that be? As in, I would just want to give some attribution for material discussed in the topic. I could add it to the posts, but was wondering if I could edit the footer of the specific page in question.
Forward
Overview:

This product allows you to define blurbs (a block of information) on a per thread basis. BBCodes are allowed in the text, and support is added for my BBCodes that require extra processing, which include:

You can select whether you want the blurbs to appear above the threads/posts or below the threads/posts. The blurbs appear in a collapsible element.



Updates:

Version 1.1:
  • Added setting to define thread blurbs on a per forum basis.
  • Added support for multiple forumids/threadids per blurb.

Version 1.2:
  • Updated to allow for display of Forum Blurbs on Forum Display.

Version 1.3:
  • Updated to allow for excluding usergroups from seeing blurbs, on a blurb by blurb basis.
  • Stacked block titles separated by " - " string, and stacked blurb content separated by horizontal rule.

Version 1.4:
  • Added setting to allow choosing between HTML and BBCodes blurb content type.

Compatibility:

Tested and working on VB 4.2.x and may work on all 4.x versions of vBulletin.

For the excluded usergroups, you only use the usergroup id number. Also, you need to close any open BBCode tags.

Hi Mark, I have an idea. How about option for Persistent, Dismissible?

"Enter thread blurbs here...in the following format:"
Some how to input here?


How it sounds?

I think I'll just stick with a user-collapsible element, for the sake of simplicity.

Suppose you want a blurb to appear in the forum with forumid 2, and you don't want members of usergroup id 8 to see it, then you would use

Ok this is clear to me.
Suppose you write a blurb in the forum ID8 and a different one in forumid9.
Authorized users are the same, only that the message that appears is different.

Be patient Mark, my english is bad -
