Not Supported Uses Plugins  

I'm just getting back into the swing of things with vBulletin 3.5. Here's my first plugin being released (Others are still in progress).

What this does:
This allows users to select which postbit they wish to use via their control panel.

Installation
Upload the plugin and create a new user profile field by following the directions below.
Once you complete the top two steps you must edit the plugin and find: field5
Then change that to your user profile field number.

Add a New User Profile Field

Profile Field Type:
Single-Selection Menu

Title: Postbit Template Selection

Description:
If you prefer the old-style postbit, using two vertical columns rather than the new horizontal layout, you can switch back to using that template with this switch.

Options:
Horizontal Postbit
Vertical Postbit (Legacy)

Set Default:
Yes, but no First Blank Option

Display Order:
This is your choice.

Field Required:
No

Field Editable by User:
Yes

Private Field:
Yes

Field Searchable on Members List
No

Show on Members List
No

Allow user to input their own value for this option
No

The rest does not matter.

Kinda new to plugins, installed a few in the past but I got an error message that I never saw before when installing this one...

This file appears to be a Plugin, not a Product. Please use the Plugin Manager to add this file.
Is this right?

I went into the Plugin Manager and went to add it that way, but it asked me for information that I do not know, such as Hook Location.

Again, I am new to this so any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Don't worry, we all have to start somewhere..

Basically, there are 2 different plugin types. Products and Plugins.
Products contain plugins, and are generally used for larger mods. They can also install templates, phrases and settings automatically. Plugins don't do any of that, and simply add code in to vBulletin's hooks (as opposed to editing the source code)..

Since this is a plugin, we need to upload it as one.
Admin CP -> Plugin System -> Download / Upload Plugins -> Import Plugin Definitions XML File

No, they need to be applied yourself.. Although it's a relatively easy job.

I don't know if anyone else has this problem, but this plugin makes my forum act strange with deleted posts. Usually, when posts are soft-deleted, they take on the appropriate template. With this, it's just a blank postbit template for soft-deleted posts. So I've had to disable this plugin, for now.

Did you set your profile field number correctly? Go to your plugins, edit the plugin that belongs to the postbit selection thingie, and check the profile number. If the number doesn't match the one you have, that's your problem.

Also, if that's not the case, check the value of the radio buttons. That also must match what you have in the plugin.
