[ABD] Silverbar MOD v0.6.0

Post by Desdenova »

MOD logo thanks to rickymallory


MOD Title: Silverbar MOD 0.6.0
MOD Author: sTraTo a.k.a. Desdenova on phpbb.com
MOD Description: This MOD allows the board to have a global Sidebar containing useful links and such. Included is a Quick Login module, a mini-MCP module to show if posts are reported or topics/posts unapporved, a module showing recent topics, a mini-UCP module where you can get quick information and have a welcome message, and finally a lower module is included with basic board links and a built-in searchbar.

FORMAT: MODX

Features:
  • Quick Side Login! (Fixed thanks to primehalo!)
  • Very easy install, with new modular design!
  • Comes packaged with a more powerful extension that allows the side it appears on (and whether it appears at all) to be configured on a user-by-user basis in the UCP!
  • Comes with a module for recent topics that is easily activated!
  • Blends with colorized prosilver styles easily!
  • Displays a welcome message, the user's name in the proper color, and the user's avatar.
  • MCP module built in so that Moderators will be visibly notified when reports are issued or posts/topics need approval (Thanks to Stitch626 & CoC for letting me use their MOD for this!)
  • Searchbar is built into the board links "module".
  • A lightweight MOD that is easy to install and change. By changing two words, you can flip the Silverbar MOD from side to side.
  • Instructions included for installing the Silverbar MOD to appear on either side of the forum.
  • Multilingual support
  • Will not display on those confirm, login, and information pages, along with the MCP and UCP.
  • Will NOT show on the ACP login page to keep it from preventing login if there ever is a bug
  • Uses Handyman's MOD Version Check MOD now so that you can keep up-to-date!
  • XHTML 1.0 Strict compliant!
  • Comes with a no-avatar picture that you can use to replace the default phpBB3 picture, if you so wish.

Thanks!

Let me know how it goes, and if you see anything that could be improved.

I'll have to toss on a few screenshots soon, too.


Also, a side note. I'm away until next Tuesday-ish, so I won't be able to provide support for the MOD until I get back.
It shouldn't need much support though, I've shaken it down pretty well, and I think I have all the bugs worked out. All that needs to really be done is the conversion from prosilver to subsilver, and rickymallory over on StarTrekGuide is working on that for me.

I use the epoch and prosilver style on our site, what would it take to move it to those? Can it be used on those?

Also is there a way to make the sidebar retractable with the click of an arrow.

Very handy indeed. I do have a few questions about it though.

1. Is there any way to make it compatible with subSilver 2/subSilver 2 based skins?
2. Could it also be displayed to Guests as well?

The sidebar should show to guests, but only certain modules of it. (not the Mini-UCP, mini-MCP) The login should show, though.

The sidebar will NOT show to Bots, though, to save bandwidth.




I'm working on finishing up the subsilver version right now. Just have to make it XHTML 1.0 Strict compliant.

Thanks Travis!

I'm looking for someone to run a localhost test of my subsilver conversion...

Anyone up for it?

This weekend I am going to try it on the epoch theme, I may also have a script to make it retractable on the actual index page. If it works, I will pass it along.

Well tried to work on it, did the whole process. Turns out epoch is subsilver version. What is the status of that? I will be more than happy to try it out.

When users entering in any forum, they can't login with help sidebar. Only with main method. e.g. when users enters login\password and cliks login - nothing happens. So users can login only from index page.

How can i help it?
