  • Flash as a Singature

    Hello to all.

    I'm wondering if I can have the signatures of my users to be in a Flash file (swf.) Is this feature available in vbulletin? If not, can it be added?

    It'll be really nice to have that feature.

    Hi there,

    You can make a custom BBCode that reads out flash. And users could use that in their signature.

      For example you could have:

      [FLASH=http://host/directory/file.swf][/FLASH]

      And in BBCOde Manager you could put as replacement the <object> tags and the nesscery flash requirements in those object tags.

      EDIT:

      I made the [FLASH] tag in the demo board to show you how its made.
      You can also test it out in the demo board by typing:

      [FLASH=http://url.swf][/FLASH]

      The thread for it in the demo is http://demo.vbulletin.com/showthread.php?p=2.

      Hope that helps

          Thats just stupid :P

          EDIT:

          Here is a screenshot of the bbcode manager so you can see how to do it.

          CLICK HERE

          The pop-up window is the replacement code. And the rest is easy to understand.

          You dont have to have it as "[FLASH=blah][/FLASH]" you can have it as "[FLASH]http://url.swf[/FLASH]" if you use {param} instead of {option}.

          You can veen use both to make it even more customizable. For example, you could have the quailty of the movie and the link.

          "[FLASH=quality]http://url.swf[/FLASH]" or viseversa.

          quality would = {option}
          and url would = {param}

          Damn, i should be on the vB team

            1 you dont need to have an option. its best to just use param unless the option is needed for some reason.

            Also enabling flash in any way shape or form is a secutiry risk.

              I showed a method of using param aswell And then a method using both.

              And Flash can be a security risk, but everything in life is a risk. You cant be held back just because you dont want to take risks

                  But we're not talking about you are we? I am answering this thread starters question and showing him how to do it. He can decide if its a risk he wants to take or not. And how likely would it be someone would do that? Unless you have a popular forum.

                    Thanks all for the replies

                    Greetings

                    I'm still confused about the param and the option thinge Can anyone please explain further about them...

                    About the security, is it really true that a flash file can make someone be able to steal my cookies and log in to my admin cp? Cause if it's really true, then, I don't think I'll take that risk

                    Again, thanks all for the replies. They're really helpful.

                      You have a very slight chance of such thing happening. And the password is encrypted in the cookie i think so you cant just see exactly what it says.


                      ---------------

                      About the param and option thing:

                      {param} is what goes inbetween a bbcode tag. For example:

                      [bbcode]text[/bbcode]

                      text would be the param.

                      {option} is what goes near a = sign. For example:

                      [bbcode=SomeText][/bbcode]

                      SomeText would be the {option}.


                      In the replacement box you can use those two things to get information.
                      Lets use the url one as an example. But we will name it link instead as it will format it into a link if i use [ url ].

                      [link=http://www.vbulletin.com][/link]

                      In the replacement box you would put:

                      <a href={option}></a>

                      But thats not really helpful as there is no text to show where the link is. So we could put:

                      <a href={option}>{option}</a>

                      which would give out the following output:

                      www.vbulletin.com

                      But you dont HAVE to use option. You can use {param} the same way. {option} is basically an extra if you like incase you need a second paramiter.

                      [link]www.vbulletin.com[/link]

                      Then in replacement box you would type:

                      <a href={param}>{param}</a>

                      And you would get the same output as above.

                      But lets say you want a link but have a "Click Here" link.
                      Thats easy enough. In the BBCode manager you would put the following for the tag "link".

                      Replacement box:

                      <a href={option}>{param}</a>

                      So if someone put the following:

                      [link=http://www.vbulletin.com]Click here to goto vBulletin[/link]

                      The output would be:

                      Click here to goto vBulletin.


                      ---------------

                      So to sum it all up:

                      {param} and {option} are ways to gather information sent by the user.

                      ---------------

                      I hope this helps you

                        So? I just use his userid and the password in his cookie and set my own cookie with that data.

                              Lol, you dont get it do you?

                              Encryted means that is has been put in a way so its not like the orignal word.

                              "A0fGhA65hg" could mean "blah" but you wouldnt know that cause it has been encryted.
                              One of the best ways is to use md5. md5($variable).

                              So no, you couldnt do the above.
                              And this is in pre-sales for a reason:
                              He is asking if vBulletin can do this before he buys.
                              I then showed him how it is possible.
