Supported Uses Plugins Template Edits Additional Files  

This is a rather small product and it was something which I used to add to our forums everytime an update occured. Now with a news template hook on the right place, which was in 3.6.6 released this edit is finally a thing from the past and I made a product out of it. I used the product, as one phrase needs to be added. It's small, but I think that's ok I personally don't know if anyone also had this idea. However the code was all developed by myself

What it does:
It adds a graphic to every postbit to the right of quick-reply. It's an arrow which points to the top and upon a click brings you to the top of each page. This is very handy if you are down into a loooong page and want quick access to the navbar i.e. It works both with postbit and postbit_legacy.

What to do:
0 template edits
1 file to be uploaded (an image)
1 xml-file to be imported
1 phrase added
1 template added

Please click install, if you use this product.

didn't work for me, the image doesn't show. most likely because i have a custom postbit legacy template? Any idea what i need to manually add to my template to get the button to show? thanks!

Alternate solution is.

edit template postbit/postbit_legacy

find
$post[iplogged]
add above
<a href="#top"><img src="$stylevar[imgdir_button]/top.gif" alt="Top" border="0" /></a>
upload your arrow picture like (top.gif) to /images/buttons

see results

PS. you can also use another place for the arrow picture in the template

The template MUST have $template_hook[postbit_controls] in it, which hasn't been added until version 3.6.6 and if you have custom postbits, you need to revert first or add this template hook.

@hcmagix: Of course it can also be done like this, but it's more nifty without template edits

Heh... I've been doing this on my forum for a while now too after seeing it on an IPB forum once. I too thought about using the postbit template hook for it. Nice to see someone else took the initiative and did it!

Do you have the PSD file for the graphic you used for the button? I'd like to recolor it and use that instead of the one I use now.

Download the first version of the graphics pack and select the Arrow Buttons.psd. Download it here:
http://members.vbulletin.com/membersupport.php

Get the first one, as it is the one with layered Photoshop .psd-files.

I am not sure, if I may post the .psd-file here
