  • [Answered] Time Phrases

    To start things off, in forums' started by, it's currently like this example below:

    Started by Amaury, Tuesday, 11/15/2011 12:00 AM
    I would like it to be like this:

    Started by Amaury
    Tuesday, 11/15/2011 at 12:00 AM
    I've already tried it by changing the started_by_x_y_z_a phrase.

    However, when I try changing

    Code:
    <span class="label">Started by&nbsp;<a href="{1}" class="username understate" title="Started by {2} on {3} {4}">{2}</a>{5},&nbsp;{3}&nbsp;{4}</span>
    to

    Code:
    <span class="label">Started by&nbsp;<a href="{1}" class="username understate" title="Started by {2} on {3} {4}">{2}</a>{5}<br>&nbsp;{3} at&nbsp;{4}</span></br>
    it gets messed up and looks like this:

Name:	Started By.jpg

ID:	3723952

    I don't want the pagination moved down and the date isn't aligned all the way to the left like the Started by.

    Using the same screenshot, what is the phrase for the time in the Last Post By column? I want to replace the comma with at.

    Also, what are the phrases for the time in the following screenshots? Again, I want to replace the comma with at.

    Well, to be honest, the threadbit template (that's the name iirc) in there...is a design nightmare. The css/html used in there is extremely poor if you want to modify it in anyway. Last time I tried to change something like you are trying now, I felt like pulling out my hairs.

    So my honest suggestion would be not to change the layout in there or if you do, change the whole layout to some simple html/css.

      Ah, okay. For the first one, I think I'll just make a small change, then, and replace the comma with a hyphen.

      So it would be Started by [username] - [date] [time], which still looks pretty good, actually.

      Thanks for the response.

          I think this would be another simple one like what I said I did above your reply, CvP.

          In circle 1, I want to add a comma after the date (Today / Yesterday / [date]); in circle 2, I want to add a comma after the date, too, but I also want to reduce the spacing between the date and time on the VM headers.

          Which phrase or phrases would that / those be?

            Not a phrase.

            First, in this template: memberinfo_block_statistics

            Scroll and add comma after:
            Code:
            {vb:raw prepared.lastactivitydate}
            PHP Code:
            <vb:if condition="$prepared['lastactivitydate']">
                <
            dl class="blockrow stats">
                    <
            dt>{vb:rawphrase last_activity}</dt>
                    <
            dd> {vb:raw prepared.lastactivitydate},<vb:if condition="!$show['detailedtime']"> <span class="time">{vb:raw prepared.lastactivitytime}</span></vb:if></dd
            This will add a comma for the Last Activity of the About Me tab.

            For the sidebar:

            This template: memberinfo_block_ministats

            Scroll and add comma after:
            Code:
            {vb:raw prepared.lastactivitydate}
            PHP Code:
            <dl class="stats">
                    <
            dt>{vb:rawphrase last_activity}</dt>
                    <
            dd> {vb:raw prepared.lastactivitydate},<vb:if condition="!$show['detailedtime']"> <span class="time">{vb:raw prepared.lastactivitytime}</span></vb:if></dd>
                </
            dl>
                </
            vb:if>

                  </
              dl>
                  </
              vb:if> 
              Thank you, that worked. Unfortunately, I will have to go through every style and apply those individually since there's no way of applying template changes to all styles.

              Anyway, how about the VM headers? I'd like to add a comma there, too, as well as reduce the excess spacing.

                Add as I have:

                Code:
                </vb:if>
                             - <span class="postdate">{vb:raw message.date} <vb:if condition="!$show['detailedtime']">,<span class="time">{vb:raw message.time}</span> </vb:if></span>
                            </label>
                Stuff like this should be on vB.org, but while we're at it....

                These are at your own risk.

                  Hm, that adds a comma, but there's a space between it and the date, plus there's still that excess space.

                  Oh, well. No biggie. Getting the other things to work (About Me and Sidebar) are good enough.

                  Thanks for the help.

                    Template memberinfo_visitormessage, find:
                    Code:
                    {vb:raw message.date} <vb:if condition="!$show['detailedtime']"><span class="time">{vb:raw message.time}</span>
                    Replace with:
                    Code:
                    {vb:raw message.date}, <vb:if condition="!$show['detailedtime']">{vb:raw message.time}

                      Awesome, that worked.

                      Now, I need to head over to vBulletin.org to see if there's a way to apply template changes to all styles.

                        Make the change to the Parent Style, and it will cascade down to all [unaltered] templates in child styles.

                          Unfortunately, all styles are individual.

                            memberinfo_visitormessage is totally different and unique per style?

                              No, I mean that all of our styles are parents. We only have two child styles -- a light version of our default Dance of the Dream Eater style and a fluid width version of our Darkness style.
