vBStatus - Facebook Style Status Display (v4)

Developer Last Online: Nov 2018 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

This modification is in the archives.
vB Version: 3.7.x Rating: (53 votes - 4.51 average) Installs: 731
Released: 02 Jun 2008 Last Update: 13 Jul 2008 Downloads: 4250
Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Template Edits Additional Files  





This modification thread will not be upgraded, since it is possible that some users may prefer v4.

Compatible with 3.6.x and 3.5.x
vBStatus allows your users to update their status to tell other members what they are doing/thinking at any given time. A user's status is displayed under their names in their postbit, in their User Profile, and anywhere else you choose!

User's can edit their status quickly and easily via AJAX.

Administrative options include:
  • Banning a list of usergroups from using the hack.
  • Allowing a list of usergroups to change other users' status.
  • Limit the # of characters used in Status Messages
  • Word wrap status messages to prevent broken templates.
  • Turning the hack on/off.
  • Option of In-Line editting or a popup. (Defined in the admincp)
  • Default status for users with a blank status. (Defined in the admincp)
  • Status prefix to append an admin-customizable forum standard. (Attilitus is doing something)
There are 3 template edits for this hack. The installation readme file will guide you through the entire process.
Update 2.0:
Please reinstall the product xml file, and re-edit your templates following the new instructions in the readme file. This is to correct a small cosmetic bug that displays non-functional links to guests and non-admins.

Update 3.0:
A number of bugs were fixed, and a few new admin options were added. Please uninstall the previous product and reinstall this one. Please re-edit your templates and reupload all files. Sorry for the inconvenience (but at least we are getting this handled in the first 12 hours of release.)

Update 4.0:
This is a fairly comprehensive update. You must remove all previous template edits and add the new template code. You must also "Allow Overwrite" when importing the new product. The DB structure hasn't changed.

New features include:
  • In-Line Editting (This is on by default, but you can return to the previous popup style by changing an option in the admincp)
  • Default Status: If a user doesn't have any status message it will be set to a default status which you can define in the admincp
  • Visual improvements: Various small visual improvements were made, including a change in the location of the small "edit" link.
Update 4.01
I added status prefixes. If your updating from version 4 just reimport the product (with overwrite set to yes), and reupload all the files. No template edits necessary when upgrading from v4 to v4.01. (And I'm not going to change the file version because this update came so quickly on the heals of v4.)

Thoughts

I've installed and am having a look.

Would like to see the following changes made

A In the settings you have the following

Is vBStatus On/Off?
Turn vBStatus On or Off.

The options are Yes or No, which make absolutely no sense given the question - can you change these to On or Off instead of Yes or No


B I note that a group that is "banned" still has the default status listed, not sure that is appropriate.


C Would like the username removed from the status message as it's appearing under the username anyway so seems to be doubling up. Would make more sense to just have the prefix and status message. I did this myself by removing the line

$post[username]

from the postbit

D would love to have the ability to set the status according to the primary usergroup, would make this infinitely more useful

E on the pop up status edit screen you currently have an input field, a link to click to submit the status edit and a button to cancel, the "edit" link should be replaced with a submit button or an update button, makes more sense for my users.

Thanks for the mod, great idea.

That's in the settings

nice mod! voted and installed. Kudos to the coder!

just a note:
I modified it a little to fit and look a little nicer on my forum. If anyone is interested:

I commented out the:
$post[username] ... so it does not display the username before the status. I felt it was sorta redundant since it gets displayed right under the user's name anyway.

I also added:
<br><hr> ... after the EDIT link so it displays a little bar right under the status. This breaks up the status and the rest of the 'stuff' that appears on the left (ie. the avatar, post count, etc..)

it worked for me on 3.8.3

Thank you for the confirmation on 3.8.3.

I didn't see the little bar between the status and username when I looked at your site as a guest.
