  • [HELP] How do I change GUEST to something else ?

    I found that in all the vBulletin forums, all ex-registered member have the title "GUEST". I wold like to know if there is anyway I can change the default title to something else?

    That is hardcoded in functions.php -- search for "Guest".

    And can you enter your customer info into your profile? See link in sig for more info. Thanks!

      Change "Guest" to another name

      Hi. I have my info in, can I find out? I want the name "guest" to be something else... with the 'Who's Online', etc... I changed both fields in the Usergroups section in the control panel.. Nothing changed.

        For Who's Online change this in online.php:
        Code:
              $guests[$count][username] = "Guest";
        For the posts, change this in functions.php:
        Code:
        		$post[usertitle]="Guest";
        Anything else?

          You asked the wrong chick that question! Sure...

          1. Put a login/register box on my index page at my website.

          2. Resize the table cells on the first page.

          3. Use an image [.gif] for the word "IP logged"

          I'm still browsing to see if I can find the rest first!

          Thanks bunches!!

            Oh god...

            Heh j/k.

            For the 3rd one, edit the postbit_ip_hidden template.

            For the login box I think there is hack in the releases forum, do a search on "homepage login" or something like that.

            And I'll need a bit more info for the 2nd request.
            What exactly are you trying to resize?

              Ummm... The 'Guest' Name Continues...

              Hi. The names didn't change... The saga continues!

              As for the re-sizing:

              Shorten the last column on the right [moderators] and lengthen the first column on the left ['Forum']....


              and then I wa.... Heh yourself...

                I changed Guests to Lurkers in online.php like Firefly said. Then I also changed it in the whosonline and forumhome_loggedinusers templates and all my guests are now lurkers.

                  For resizing, change this part in forumhome template:
                  Code:
                  <tr align="center">
                    <td bgcolor="{tableheadbgcolor}"><smallfont>&nbsp;</smallfont></td>
                    <td bgcolor="{tableheadbgcolor}" width="80%" align="left"><smallfont color="{tableheadtextcolor}"><b>Forum</b></smallfont></td>
                    <td bgcolor="{tableheadbgcolor}"><smallfont color="{tableheadtextcolor}"><b>Posts</b></smallfont></td>
                    <td bgcolor="{tableheadbgcolor}"><smallfont color="{tableheadtextcolor}"><b>Threads</b></smallfont></td>
                    <td bgcolor="{tableheadbgcolor}" nowrap><smallfont color="{tableheadtextcolor}"><b>Last Post</b></smallfont></td>
                    <td bgcolor="{tableheadbgcolor}" width="20%"><smallfont color="{tableheadtextcolor}"><b>Moderator</b></smallfont></td>
                  </tr>
                  (look at the red parts)

                  And about the Guests thing - you must be doing something wrong. Are you sure you uploaded the new online.php?

                    Hi. Yes, I even uploaded again. There is only one part on each .php to change that, right?

                    FireFly metioned "forumhome_loggedinusers"... Where is that?

                      Actually FWC metioned "forumhome_loggedinusers".

                      That's a template, but it has nothing to do with online.php's Who's Online.
                      I guess he just changed the text there from Guests to Lurkers, but that's not what you're trying to do.

                      Yes, only one place to change that.
