Thanks for update.

What about option to allow or not users to link accounts without administrator?

Btw you are missing upgrade info.

You are correct. The 3.5 version, however, was not posted in the 3.6 section.

-> Please see the changelog. Thanks.

Sorry, the upgrade instructions are as follows (I assumed you reverted everything since 3.6 upgrade):
Re-upload the files.
Re-upload product xml.
Cancel previous template modifications, do the new ones instead.

Hi

Nice hack .. a couple of things ..

When you enter an incorrect username in the UserCP you get an error message "Could not find phrase 'badlogin_strikes'" .. perhaps use the same '5 goes and your out' type protection as vBMS does on normal account login?

The "Quick Account Switch" drop down menu in the welcome box doesn't seem to work on vBa CMPS pages. Do you know what is needed to get this to work?

Thanks

Looks like adding "switchbit" to "Portal Output Global Variables" in vBa's Default settings page did the trick

Oh, and if you have things like vBGallery or vBlogetin installed you need to edit the .xml to put your full URL in front of one instance of login.php in one of the templates before installing the product.

Seems to work on all pages then

Thanks Psionic for the update and new features!

Suggestion for a new hack that would be similar (but not the same) as this:

Alias System:

1. Allow members to have an admin-defined number of alias names to post under.
2. Forums would have the option to allow users to post under an alias. Alias forums would have a dropdown of all the member's alias' in the "Post From" box.
3. Each alias would also be able to have its own seperate avatar.

The reason this would be useful is that a lot of roleplaying game forums have a forum set aside for users to post "in character". An alias would allow them to post under the name and with the avatar of their character without needing a seperate user account.

That phrase is present in vBulletin by default. I don't know what you did with it.

Psionic Vision thx for your great work
No problem, but please click install.

This is a great idea. They used something similar on ezboard and I've always missed it here. (I'll click install if i end up using it. )
