Got some hacks that will help solve the problem with the members with large sigs :)

http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?threadid=32242&highlight=Signature+Size+Limit

Yes, another signature limit hack. But with a little twist . After installing PPN's excellent Sig Editor hack, I felt the "suspended" signature option needed to have an enforcer of some sort. I know from experience that when I edited signatures in the past (mostly for being rediculously long) the user just turns around and puts the old sig back up.

I search the board and one of the old signature limits hacks has been removed by the author and others were outdated, so here we go.

This hack will limit the line breaks in the signature but also splits the image limit setting in 2, so you can have different image limits for posts and signatures. So the smilie limit in posts doesn't have to suffer if you are trying to curb signature image abuse , and I believe it has been requested here as well in the past.

Both settings can be configured in the Admin Control Panel. Don't forget to back up all the goods before installing .

the other one

http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?threadid=45310&highlight=Signature+Size+Limit

This hack is now a Full Release!!!...You can visit the BETA thread here - I will still be using that thread to test out upcoming versions!

Please do the following before attempting to install:

1.) Backup your Files & Database before doing anything 2.) Be aware that although I have tested this myself, there may still be problems...If you do not backup your files & database, I cannot condone your install of this hack...

The files you should have are:

In the main folder modifications.php templates.php queries.php 3.0 - Show Signatures.php 3.0 - Usergroup override - permissions.php NEW INSTALL.php

In the root folder signature.php

In the admin folder signature.php

*=============================================================================== ======================================* Please Note: The install files are in the ".php" format, as vBulletin.org Parses all "{ imagesfolder }" and other replacment variables used in the code - With .php extensions, it does not. *=============================================================================== ======================================*

Install Info: Hack Version: 3.0+ Files to edit: 9 (admin/functions.php, admin/user.php, root/member.php, root/showthread.php, root/register.php, root/online.php, root/global.php, root/usercp.php, admin/index.php) Templates to add: 19 Templates to edit: 5 Time to install: Approx 10-15 Minutes

Thanks Special thanks should go to the following people:

N9ne - For providing template modifications, and for being a BETA tester Minifreunde - For requesting this hack, and for being a BETA tester DrkFusion - For being a BETA tester NTLDR - For helping with a few errors during the BETA testing stage... mADmAX`- For providing the missing code to the root/usercp.php file...You can find his manual change here

Support - I am offering support, but only in THIS THREAD...I unfortunately cannot be here during the coming weeks (Mon-Fri), so therefore you will have to rely on others for assitance, should it be urgent...If you do require assitance, please - Only reply in this thread

Screenshots Screenshots will be coming in the next post in a .zip file of their own...

Updating from BETA

Depending on what version you are updating from, I recommend the following:

Version 1.0Beta - 2.1Beta - Complete re-install Version 2.2Beta - Follow the instructions for the .php files starting "3.0", and there is one register.php modification and one usercp.php modification in the "modifications.php" file Version 3.0Beta - There is one register.php modification and one usercp.php modification in the "modifications.php" file

v3+ comes out! v3+ is really just the following:

Converting of all install files to .php format (to prevent code parsing) Creation of an extra folder (root) to house the root/signature.php file (so you dont get confused with the install .php files) The root/usercp.php modifcation I forgot to include

Enjoy!

tell me that you think :)

yet another hack to conserder becus we are going to intergrate IRC in to the sites.

http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?s=&threadid=37424&highlight=java

VB eIRC chat intergration hack 1.0 (post #1)

This is a very very easy hack to install and must be one of the easiest and best free ways to add chat to your forums. This hack uses Eirc java applets to connect to World IRC servers. There is no need to sign and compile Eirc yourself or even host it or a irc server, simply follow these instructions and you will have FREE, full, IRC chat on your forums in under 2 minutes...

For a demo, checkout the chat running here at vbullettin.org ( http://www.vbulletin.org/chat ) as it uses the same java applets...

I also hope in the next few days to make this hack display a bit better for different resoloutions & VB styles ect and make the install instructions a bit clearer, you will have to bear with me it's 5am at the moment. Please let me know where I have stuffed up..

I had to quickly make this tonight as my Jirc applet was quite lame and was turning people away from chat.. If anyone has anything they want added or knows how to easily add the resoultion and style features of VB, Please please let me know.. I have had enuff for tonight will update again tomorrow, however please do still install as I would like the feedback..

Once you have installed the hack pop into #austech and say hello... Thanks & Enjoy...

PS I searched VBullletin.org and couldn't find a Eirc hack, if I missed it could a mod please delete this...

yet another hack to add, I metioned to to pro awile ago a hack one without botsupport on one, well this one does :) http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?s=&threadid=40855

Users in Chat -with eggdrop, works no matter what- (post #1)

First and foremost, I would like to thank Sparkz for a little bit of TCL help. I had been playing with the idea for some time now of using an eggdrop bot and vBulletin to put current chatters on my forum home. Unfortunately, I couldn't find the perfect TCL to use. The current TCL is a mix between my own script, a script I found online and Sparkz script.

** YOU MUST HAVE AN EGGDROP BOT **

After seeing this hack on vbulleting.org, I wanted it for my site. Unfortunately, it was not being released, so I decided to make my own! Here it is, hopefully you can figure most of it out yourself.

What it does is uses an eggdrop bot (not going to explain what it is). The bot refreshes the userlist when a user leaves or enters the channel, this keeps the list up to date always. When you load index.php, the list is downloaded from the shell and read into a variable. This variable can be put on your forumhome template and viewed by the user. This hack also gets the current channel topic and the current server that the chat is on.

Pros: * Works for any IRC method (jpilot, mirc, eirc, etc.) * No page refreshing or database calls * Is ALWAYS up-to-date

Cons: * Uses FTP and eggdrop

Support for this hack is limited due to the fact that I am a busy person.

I hope you enjoy this hack, it's my first.

- joey

ok this hack will solve alot of problems in our user list :) we have a Un-Activated User list that is huge and needs to be managed :)

http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?s=&threadid=49879

Un-Activated User Management (post #1)

This hack will email a warning to members who have not activated their account and then delete them. It can run via cron, and is a pretty darn easy hack to install.

Features: 1. Emails users after 3 days and reminds them to activate their accounts.

2. Emails users after 5 days and lets them know their account will be deleted if they do not activate.

3. Emails users after 8 days with a final warning.

4. Deletes un-activated members after 10 days.

oh I think Pro-Filer will like this one :D

http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?s=&threadid=33195

Mark User As Contributor (post #1)

Quite simply, if you have a donation system on your forums, you may wish to have a way of having donating members stand out from the freeloaders

This hack will place text/icon/whatever you choose both within their profile and on their posts, in a spot of your choosing.

Administrators set whether a user is a contributor within the Admin control panel.

Please remember to backup your database first!!

This is a very simple hack including just a couple of file and template edits, and two new templates. The new templates and database changes are made by the included install file.

See this thread for screenshots

If there are any problems, please post below...

Mark

OOOHHH

/me druling

Improved PM Folderview

http://www.vbulletin.org/hacks/index.php?s=&action=showhack&hackid=332

TESTED ON 2.2.8 AND FOUND WORKING

What does it do?

You know it happens to me pretty often that my users wonder why they cannot receive any more pm's. the standard question "did you check your sent items folder?" is answered with the standard question "do i have a sent items folder?"...

to avoid that, this hack shows the user on the privatemessage mainpage which folders they have in a list with the ability to add a folder without having to switch to the folders template.

aditionally, i modified the pmgauge enhanced hack by WWW.TOTAL-IMPACT.COM aka princeton a little and included it.

so, its nothing special, but maybe some people like it.

instructions:

1) follow instructions.txt

Credits: The_Sisko, mystics and boofo for finding bugs and helping with the code

Please notice this add-on by matt that allows you to have the amount of messages in each folder displayed next to it. Working on 2.2.9 too.

Notice: If you have installed the private message backup hack by Cano2, read the first post in the support thread

If you use it, please click install, thanks
