Developer Last Online: May 2008 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

This modification is in the archives.
vB Version: 3.0.0 Rating: (0 vote - 0 average) Installs: 6
Released: 01 Feb 2004 Last Update: Never Downloads: 6
Not Supported  

What Does This Hack Do?
--
Allows for users to choose either the vb2 style postbit or the vb3 style postbit.
Note: Makes the vb3 setting 'legacypostbit' obsolete so that users can choose which postbit they prefer.

What To Do?
--
Queries To Run ( 1 )
File Modifications ( 9 )
includes/functions.php ( 2 )
profile.php ( 3 )
showpost.php ( 2 )
showthread.php ( 2 )
Template Modifications ( 1 )
modifyoptions template ( 1 )
Phrases To Add ( 4 )
postbit_style_title
postbit_style_desc
vb2_postbit
vb3_postbit

Note: Please respect my work, do not edit, modify, or redistribute in any form unless prior consent is given.
I would appreciate that if you installed this hack that you click install.

After viewing the discussion on vb.com though it can be done with no file modifications I choose this specific way because:

1. I don't like the postbit style option showing in with the profile fields it's better laid out in the user options under thread options.
2. I find it necessary to cache the posbit_legacy template. So if you want to get technical about file mods not needed, sure, but then you'll be running an extra query each time you load the showpost.php and showthread.php files if you use the vb2 postbit.


Screenshots and zip attached below. If you have any comments, suggestions, or concerns please share them here.

The postbit.gif screen shows the difference between vb2 style and vb3 style if you didn't know the difference.

Enjoy,

It's possible to add custom postbits as well.

Yes, this can be done with a template mod.
Freddie showed us how - see the discussion on vbulletin.com about this.

I did it my own way, don't like it then don't use it that simple. And if Floris did his with a template mod then its not a hack.

I ask you, how?

Good job, but it's a little overkill. First, I have the legacy postbit setting set to '0' in the settings. I make a profile field giving the user this option, and in my phpinclude_start template, I add an if statement to check the value of the profile field, and if it is set to the vB2 style, set $vboptions['legacypostibt'] to '1'.

No hacking required, no unneeded queries, just a simple template mod.

Nice work, but it's just overkill to do 9 file edits when none are needed.

Okay so you don't want to do unneeded queries, but by not making two file modifications you're running unnecessary queries, I don't see how people aren't understanding.

And where would those unnecessary queries come from? It's a simple profile field/if statement combination.
