vB Version: 3.6.4 Rating: (5 votes - 4.40 average) Installs: 107

Notice: This mod is no longer being developed by the original author. As of today (1-1-2008) it will be continued by Laura!

This mod will enable you to convert a forum into a diary of weblog (blog) forum. A diary or blog can be started by any user who has permissions to post in the forum and only the author of the diary is able to post entries.

The autor of the diary is able to protect the diary with a password so that only users (also guests) who know the password are able to view the diary or blog.

This mod may contain some bugs as I did not yet test it extensively. Please let me know if you find any bugs and I will work on it. Feature requests are also verry welcome!

Have Fun!
Jan Jaap

Updates:
  • v1.1
    • Diary Forum Display
    • Diary Thumbnails (professional, using the vBulletin Avatar thumbnail management system)
    v1.2
    • vBBlog extension
    • Comments page (comments per diary/blog entry)
    • Customized Diary/Blog template wich shows the post date for diaries and entry title for blogs in a <h2> tag.
This mod makes use of the original vBulletin systems so it will perform on a big high traffic forum. Aprox. 30 hours have been invested in this mod so far. Ofcourse also a lot of study work to get to know the vBulletin systems like Postbit factory and datamanager.

No template edits are needed, all is managed via the plugin system, a onetime install and further configuration from the original vBulletin forum adminpanel.

Nice Mod

Is there a way of removing the Reply button when people are reviewing that diary, instead of giving the button then an insufficient permissions message when they submit?

Thanks

Hi, I Appreciate Your Idea, Just Installed it on vb 3.6 Test Forum

but at this stage the diary forum is not seems as a diary, its need more work to become a great diary Add-on.

Some Suggestions for your future updates:
  1. Diary Author can allow some registered users to read & comment on their diary.
  2. Thumbnail of Diary Thread (on forumdisplay) and/or..
  3. Avatar of The Diary Author As a Thubmnail of Diary (on formdisplay)
  4. Description of Diary Thread (on forumdisplay)
  5. Transform Forum Into Diary Just Like GARS
  6. Display Latest Entry's on Right or Left side of the Forumdisplay
Warm regards

Hi!

Thanks for the feedback!

Regarding your suggestions:
  1. Diary Author can allow some registered users to read & comment on their diary.
    • The author is able to specifiy a password and then provide it to whoever he/she likes. The user doesn't even have to be registered on the forum to view the password protected diary.
  2. Thumbnail of Diary Thread (on forumdisplay) and/or..
    • You mean a direct link to post a diary in a diary subforum? Or could you otherwise please be more exact?
  3. Avatar of The Diary Author As a Thubmnail of Diary (on formdisplay)
    • Maybe it would be better to be able to specify a thumbnail per diary? As 1 user can have multiple diaries about specific subjects like pets etc.
  4. Description of Diary Thread (on forumdisplay)
    • I don't understand what you mean by this. And I would like to keep it "manual template modification" free. It might be possible to change the existing template data via a plugin but I am not sure if this will work or if it would be needed. Isn't just the title like "Diary of user xxx" enaufh?
  5. Transform Forum Into Diary Just Like GARS
    • What exactly is GARS? Could you please provide a link to an example GARS diary and their main site?
  6. Display Latest Entry's on Right or Left side of the Forumdisplay
    • I will add this.

It's a great hack, although I think I am going to use it for private threads rather than a diary. Great work Adult SEO - your vBulletin hacks are the best!

Hi!

Thanks for the screenshot! I will add this! I've already extended the mod not to show the reply links etc. to visitors and only the edit and replylink for authors.

I will try to have it completed by tonight!

Best Regards,
Jan Jaap
