New Version of VB On / Off Switch

Can someone please make a plugin or code hack for the admincp, so that you can change in the vb options weather or not to display in the admincp

There is a newer version of vBulletin available to download

code block?

Example say we just wanted to patch or update our site with a plugin, example 3.5.2 to 3.5.3, but didn't want to have the reminder up after doing that. It would be cool if someone made it something where we can turn the warning or information block on and off.

This would be good for people that also dont' plan on upgrading there current versons of vbulletin. Again to clarify I'm just talking about the block above the stats in the admincp, not the very top bar where it shows your version info.

Thanks muchly

Ummm...

Being the last few releases, and especially 3.5.3 are more security patches...

Why wouldn't you at least patch it?

I mean... why leave a security hole on your site?

For example, my live site is on 3.5.1, but I've done the patch for 3.5.2 and 3.5.3, and am planning on upgrading it to 3.5.3 very soon.

But to not do at least the patches seems like your kinda opening a door for a hackin ass whoopin

Hello,
He wants to know how to remove that reminder AFTER you use a patch. I myself patched my site and will be upgrading on a later date. Now that "I" have it patched, I could possibly turn off the reminder if the mod he is suggesting were created.

Only thing that worries me about upgrading is redo-ing all the php editing for all the mod's installed.

You didn't read what I said, I said wanted something to be able to toggle warning on and off after doing a patch.

After once again finishing all the hack installs. I prob want to wait till 3.5.4, before spending another week 10 hours a day chopping up my site. So reason I asked above, it would be nice to be able to turn the warning off :P

Stop hacking your files and keep better docs if you do.

Heheh I cheat...

I keep a thread on my forum of all the files I've editted and every edit I do I do with this format -


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

If I have to replace something I do

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

Then to upgrade all I have to do is open up an old file and a new one, do a search for "start hack" and rip through them.

I've hacked about a dozen files and it takes me about 15 mins to upgrade

Just the updating templates part that annoys me and makes me wait to do a full upgrade hehe.

There are about five consecutive document.writeln lines in the vB admincp index.php file that you may comment out to avoid seeing that upgrade notice. Alternatively, you could add something to the condition of the if statement that surrounds the document.writelns to toggle the notice on or off, but either way, you'll need to edit the file.

The key thing there was 'hacking your FILES'. Zachery is suggesting that the poster use only Plugins or Extensions, which do not require File hacking.
