  • Quick Issue

    Ok, i am currently redesigning my skin and would like to make effective use of a sidebar, which will be used throughout on all pages and has been placed within the footer template. The main issue i am having is that variables such as those which display member, post, thread count and latest member information statistics are not being displayed in the footer template. How can this be changed so that these are displayed throughout?

    Also, is there an if condition documentation avaiable so that i can display certain information on for example, forumhome, showthread, and forumdisplay templates only?

    To avoid performance issues certain code is only loaded in the appropiate templates, some code for navbar won't work in forumdisplay, some code from forumhome won't work in footer.

    Here is an example of our manual.

    Anything custom you require in regards to plugins to get what you need for the sidebar is something you have to ask on

    Cusotmization falls outside of jelsoft standard support.

      Thanks for your help, the only problem is that the documentation provided only showcases the appropriate syntax, but not the appropriate variables neccessary to showcase information whilst viewing forumhome, forumdisplay and showthread pages. I guess i was assuming that this sort of functionality was already avaiable within vBulletin without requiring additional modification.

        There is not a variable reference. Such a guide would be huge, and hugely valuable.
