EPC "Sorry We Are Closed" Forums Mod
*Business Minded*


This hack came from the idea of a certain request here:

Opening Hours for a forum ?!

So we decided to do this and take it on, see the below screen shots to see how easy it is to work with.

How it works:

1. You set the time frames to open and close within your vBulletin Scheduling (CRON)

2. When you do the Phrase:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Change the above to whatever you want it to say per your likings.

3. Pick the forums by using the multiselect, that you want closed at the specified times in your CRON setting in Step one.

4. Nothing more... Everything will run as normal and (AUTOMATICALLY), no posting will be allowed within your times you specified.

Installation Instructions:

All within the Zip file!

Installation Time:

2 - 3 Minutes

Installation Complexity:

SIMPLE

Support:

Only given to those who mark install, if you have questions before installing feel free to ask.

Feedback and all is greatly welcome, if you have suggestions feel free to load them on here.

Please click install if you like this and will be putting it to good use!

Yes but all posting is turned off... I would allow the content to stay there for search engine reasons... Unless you don't care about search engines on your forums???

Let me know because we built this hack for you about 6 months later I think

HAHA well I think it's a valuable add-on for anyone, just even as you said and then others that love to close their forums down for the night so they don't allow spammers to post up a storm Thanks for the feedback, with feedback like this we will surely keep them coming.
