  • A Cool Little Addition To Currently Active Users I Created...

    This is a very, very simple hack that; when browsing the Index page, at the Currently Active Users table, creates a simple image next to their name, and it links them to a new message to that user with their name already filled out.

    Here is what it looks like:



    Once you click on that image, it will bring up a new private message with their name already filled in.

    And here is the image that you'll need:



    Be sure to save the image as sendpmonline.

    Only thing is with a board that has a hundred or so online members, that gets mighty large!

        Correct, and that is the downside to this hack. That's the only reason why I don't have it implemented my board.

          Wouldn't it be a good idea to release this vbulletin.org ?

            No because it doesn't involved any code hacking.

            Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.

                Yeah, I posted it at vBulletin.org originally, but then they locked it and told me to post it over here, so here I am. I don't know coding that well...I just love to modify templates.

                    Might I add that you can use any image you'd like, but that's just the image I chose. Just make sure to change the image name in the template if the image has a different name than sendpmonline.

                      I don't have a super busy board (yet ), but this is a great template addition!

                      I have edited the icon to take just the pushpin and added the same background as the table background. This made it blend in more and also decreased the size of the pic.

                      You can see it at www.simpsonsboard.com



                      Thanks!!

                          Nice hack mate, I just changed the gif a bit to fit with a board that has a lot of members and it dosn't seem to clutter up so much.

                            To the author --> great that you have come up with this template mod

                            but I wouldnt use it as it would encourage people to discuss privatly when there is a public board at their disposal!

                              I don't think encouraging people to dicuss things privately is such a bad idea. Especially when the concept of a 'message board' turns into a 'chat board' full of spam. ugh!
