vBStatus - Facebook Style Status Updates (v5)

Developer Last Online: Jul 2016 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 4.0.3 Rating: (23 votes - 4.48 average) Installs: 219
Released: 02 Jun 2010 Last Update: 08 Aug 2010 Downloads: 1250
Not Supported DB Changes Template Edits Additional Files  

Compatible with 4.x.x
vBStatus allows your users to update their status to tell other members what they are doing/thinking at any given time. A user's status is displayed under their names in their postbit, in their User Profile, and anywhere else you choose!

User's can edit their status quickly and easily via AJAX.

Features and Configuration options include:
  • Admin Option: Turn modification on/off
  • Admin Option: Ban usergroups from updating their status.
  • Admin Option: Set a max character count for status messages.
  • Admin Option: Set the number of characters of a status message displayed per line. (Word wrapping will occur for status messages longer than this defined value.)
  • Admin Option: Define a standard status prefix to be appended to the start of all status messages after the username. (i.e. Attilitus is doing something.)
  • Admin Option: Define a default status for users with a blank status.
  • Admin Option: Define the character set used for encoding status messages. (The default value of this option should work for most character sets.)
  • Feature: Status messages may be updated in-line.
  • Feature: All languages and character sets are supported. (Most, if not all, should work with the default encoding option. Others may require some configuration in the admin options.)
  • Feature: Users may press the Enter key to confirm their status update.
  • Temporarily Deactivated in v5: Admin Option: Allow defined usergroups to modify other user's status updates. (For moderation purposes)
There are 4 template edits for this hack. The installation readme file will guide you through the entire process.

Version 5.1
  • Support for non-english characters has been added.
  • A small modification was made to the installation script to make it more robust.
Upgrade Instructions: Reupload all files (allow overwrite), and reimport the product (allow overwrite). No additional template edits are required to for the upgrade.


Version 5.2
  • Users may press the Enter key to submit their status.
Upgrade Instructions: Reupload all files (allow overwrite). No additional template edits are required for this upgrade. You may reimport the included product, if you desire, to update the version number to 5.2

Version 5.2.1
  • Extra white space will no longer appear in the status update input field.


Version 5.3
  • Important security update to fix a cross site scripting exploit.
Upgrade Instructions: Reupload all files in the upload folder to your forum root, and allow overwrite. It is not necessary to re-import the product xml file.


Note: The files available in this thread will always be for the most recent version of the modification.

If you previously used vBStatus in vB 3.x your member's old status messages will be preserved.

Brilliant. Rated 5 star and marked installed. Been waiting for this. Thanks very much.

Would be cool to see a forum block widget that displayed the most recent status updates

This is an upgraded version of a 3.7 modification that I published about two years ago.

Just one small thing Attilitus.

When you enter the status update and save, there is no space after the username and where the status update begins. This comes only after a refresh?

So immediately after saving the status update, it looks like this with no space;



Only after a refresh, does the space appear;



No biggie but I, and members did notice it;

Bacon Butty,

I cannot reproduce your problem, the spacing works fine for me with the template code I provided in the installation instructions. You should be able to fix template bugs like this by manually editing the template code inside the <!--BEGIN VBSTATUS--> <!--END VBSTATUS--> blocks inside the postbit and memberinfo templates.

Also what browser are you using (including the version number)?

Did you make all of the template edits detailed in the installation file? PM me your forum's URL and the username/password of a test account so that I can debug with Firebug. (If you want me to look for a quick fix.)

Ah. Suspected it was an error my end and it looks the case if you're not seeing the error. I'll have an edit later and see what I can do.

Strange one though, given that it's resolved on refresh/page load. I could PM you a test account login if you'd like to see out of curiosity.

The browser was Firefox 3.6.3.

Fantastic mod though. I'm just hoping some clever sod can work out how to pull all the status updates and display them on the forum home like on here and here

Bacon Butty,

There are some carefully placed whitespace characters in the template code blocks I provided. If any of them got deleted during your edits, things might be visually unpleasing. Its also possible this is an error on my part, or indicative of a "not-robust" component of my work. If that ends up being the case, then I'll issue a fix. (but I will wait until I see if someone else encounters the same problem.)

As for obtaining aggregate status update information: currently the status updates are not saved, nor are they associated with a timestamp. So it will not be easy for third party developers to create addons. I may consider adding these features in the future, or merely adding a status history table to make vBStatus more addon developer friendly.

~Tim
