This modification is in the archives.
vB Version: 3.5.4 Rating: (4 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 79
Released: 13 Dec 2005 Last Update: 13 Jun 2006 Downloads: 90
Not Supported Uses Plugins  

Update v1.20
"/me does whatever...." now gets propperly parsed to "* Username does whatever...." as well in the Archive and subscription notification e-mails!

Update v1.10
Quick-Reply didn't work, the raw "/me" was quoted.
Now works fine as well when quoting in Quick-Reply

----------
To update simply uninstall the older product and re-import the updated product XML.

==========

Hi everyone!

Here I present you my vBulletin 3.5.x port of the famous "/me" action

This plugin is based on the original /me action done back in vB2 times
The code is mainly based on the contens of this thread:
http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=59698
so at least 50% percent of the credits have to go there.

However I've completely rewritten it to fit into vB3.5.x's plugin system and the hooks.


Features of this plugin:
  • Adds the ability to use the "/me" action in posts and PMs.
    Just type "/me waves" to get something like "* Hellcat waves"
  • The formatting of the /me text can easiely be customized by editing the BB tag it uses for formatting purpose
  • The color of the /me text can be customized seperately for every style you have installed, so you always have a color fitting into the currently used style!
  • This version is actually QUOTE SAFE!
    If you quote someone who used the /me you get "* User waves" instead of the raw "/me waves" in your quoted text!
    So there will be no messing up when quoting /me's

    While editing posts however, you still have the original entered "/me" (except for PMs)


Installation

Painless and easy, no files need to be edited, no files need to be uploaded!

1)
Simply download the product XML from this post, go to your AdminCP -> Product Manager -> Upload/Import Product -> Point it to the XML and hit "GO"

2)
Add the following BB tag via the BB-Code-Manager:

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

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

This BB tag is actually used for the /me output, so edit the replacement of this tag to fit your need of the formatting of the /me text.

3)
Optional:
For every style you have installed go to Style Manager -> Add Replacement Variable

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

Variable value: enter any HTML color you like and that fits to the color theme of the style, "#AA0000" for example for a med red.

Using this you can set a different color for the /me for every style.


If you don't want or need to do step 3 you might also want to remove the DIV tag from the HTML makeup (if you don't you have an unparsed {mecolor} in there).


What else?
1) Click "INSTALL" if you use it
2) This can easiely be edited/copied to implement even more actions
3) Post comments and problems here and we try to solve them
4) This has been develloped and tested on vBulletin 3.5.2 but should work under 3.5.0 and 3.5.1 as well.

Have fun!

I searched a day for "/me" but didn't find those
And the thread about the 3.0.x /me didn't have a refference as well

Nah.... so there's one more.

Well, the major benefit this hack has is that it is coded for 3.5.2 and is quote safe.

P.S. Just want to get a pet hate off my chest (seeing one of the other hacks still in beta). I realise that hack authors generally release their work for free (so I should shut the hell up), but it can be slightly annoying when a very cool hack gets released with bugs in it and then never gets updated so it never gets used. Such a waste of a great idea and good code.

One question... Does this allow /me to be used within a sentence without messing it up? For instance a link...

Yes, should be no problem.
I already posted a few posts with that where the "/me" accours somwhere in the text.
It's supposed to only parse the "/me" if it's at the very beginning of a line.

good..

btw, i was posting the links to "compare" like said...

and this is good to not shuffle the /me everywhere... BUT,,, would be COOOOOLER if it can parse a sentence, like :
this is good. /me click install. and i'll be happy!

...i know it's a bit more complicated, use 2 regex more... but anyway, this is a idea for a addon.. lol

Couldn't agree with you more.

Did you set the replacement variables in the style manager for all styles?
And is the name the same as given in the BB code?
