  • importing variables from plugins

    Not sure if I should be asking these sorts of things here or .org

    but If I have just created a simple plugin( in Postbit_diplsay_complete), say:

    title: xyz

    global $vbulletin;
    if (stristr($thread['title'],'a title')){
    $dirlink = "a title";
    print $dirlink;

    how can I know import $dirlink so that I can use it within a template, for example: navbar

      Thanks Jake, I place the code above in (general)parse_templates, but when trying to use $dirlink in navbar, $dirlink returns blank (even in threads that contain 'a title') since $thread['title'] does not exist in parse_templates

      I have found a way, Im using $foruminfo[title] instead of
