Not Supported Uses Plugins  

I'm just getting back into the swing of things with vBulletin 3.5. Here's my first plugin being released (Others are still in progress).

What this does:
This allows users to select which postbit they wish to use via their control panel.

Installation
Upload the plugin and create a new user profile field by following the directions below.
Once you complete the top two steps you must edit the plugin and find: field5
Then change that to your user profile field number.

Add a New User Profile Field

Profile Field Type:
Single-Selection Menu

Title: Postbit Template Selection

Description:
If you prefer the old-style postbit, using two vertical columns rather than the new horizontal layout, you can switch back to using that template with this switch.

Options:
Horizontal Postbit
Vertical Postbit (Legacy)

Set Default:
Yes, but no First Blank Option

Display Order:
This is your choice.

Field Required:
No

Field Editable by User:
Yes

Private Field:
Yes

Field Searchable on Members List
No

Show on Members List
No

Allow user to input their own value for this option
No

The rest does not matter.

What seems to be the problem? I need more information. You most likely did not change the userfield in the plugin.

Wow -- you all are porting these so quickly that I won't be able to catch up in time to have to port anything I am using as everything on my list of ToDos is showing up here. LOL!

Thank you for sharing!!

That's what I had to do, it's working great now. Thanks for the Plugin, I've always wanted the Users to be able to select this. :classic:

Is there a way to get around this? I would like the vertical postbit on by default for all existing members and guests, and enabling this would force all users to update the option in their User CP.

Well... you could set the Vertical Postbit default for new registrations... but I'm not sure what you could do for the existing users.

Edit: I just thought of something, I'm not sure if this would work or not... but. When you're setting up the profile field, there's an option to make a selection default... try doing that. That should effect everyone's profiles, in theory anway.

I uploaded another version. Anyone that wants the forum default to work on either postbit option try that one. I did not test this though so let me know if it works.
