What Does This Hack Do?

This is an update to my 3.7.x version of this hack.

This is an hack adds an extra option to the Search drop down list on the nav bar to allow quick access to the Social Groups Advanced Search page.

There are no file or template changes at all, and is phrased.


vBulletin Version Compatibility

This hack can be used with vBulletin versions 3.7.0 - 3.8.8.

This hack is not compatible with v3.6.x and earlier versions of vBulletin, due to fact that social groups were not introduced until v3.7.0.

NOTE: I will not be upgrading this hack to vBulletin v4.0.x, as vBulletin no longer has a Search menu on the Navbar.

well I installed it and actually it happened, when I did uninstall it, there was the column in the ACP left and further on it says ms_searchsocialgroups_permissions could not be found bla bla... when I try to safe anything within the userright manager... (just go there after uninstalling this hack and try to safe either one of your usergroups... won't go ) I think this is the result of a not clean uninstall code maybe... however I had to create this table again to be able to change userrights...

It did uninstall correctly, but you forgot to delete the bitfield_ms_searchsocialgroups.xml file from your /includes/xml folder, which is why you are currently having problems.

It doesn't open the search page of the social groups, instead it links to the main page of the social groups.

Hi all,

It is with regret that after over 4 years (and thousands of hours) spent providing free support for my free hacks released here, as of today I will no longer be able to provide support for free.

This is due to being unemployed for a while, being strapped for cash and unable to rely on the virtually non-existent donations from here to help to pay the bills or put food on the table for my family. I am now providing all support for my free hacks released here over at Wolfshead Solutions via an annual support subscription (for a small fee).

It does not mean I will be no longer release free hacks, I will, but I will just no longer be supporting them for free.

My free hacks have and always will remain free to download and use. And so will updates/bug fixes.

I will be releasing more free hacks, but if you require any support at all for those free hacks, you will need to purchase an annual support subscription over at Wolfshead Solutions to receive support.

I am really sorry I have to do this, but revenue generated by my programming gigs are now my only source of income, and I can no longer afford the luxury of providing free support here, when that time can be spent creating new commercial products, doing paid work requests or providing paid support to pay the bills.

Thank you for the understanding.

Regards,

Mosh.
