    Default Drop-Down list of User Sub-Categories/Categories

    VBA User Links Drop-Down Links Menu Version 1.0 beta 1

    Released: July 4th, 2008 (Independance Day)

    For about three months now, I've been trying to find a way to get a Drop-Down menu that would show user-specific VBA Links. I even tried hiring coders at vbulletin.org, and paid two people to create VBA Links User Drop-Down menu, but each time they would stop short of integrating it with VBA Links (yet I still paid them).

    Description: This will add a drop-down menu to the Navbar and allow you to add user-specific links to the drop-down menu. It creates several new fields in the vbulletin database. It's been tested on vBa 3.0/vbulletin 3.7.1 and appears to work great. However, we need to integrate this with vBa Links!

    Word of Warning: Another vba Links programmer said to be careful with this mod. It adds one query for every single page on your site per every single user. The code does work, however, it may need to be cleaned up. This is a template for any talented programmer who wants to integrate it with vba Links, and then share their code/modifications with the vba Links community (which is why it has been released for free).

    Please Help Finish This Mod

    In the hope that someone out there can help continue this project, and in the spirit of the 4th of July, I am releasing this code free to the public. My hope is that someone will be able to edit the code, add the right VBA Links variables (basically integrating it with VBA Links), and make this into a product that the VBA Links community can enjoy.

    One thing I want to note, Brain stated that in the current release of vBa Links v. 3.0 Beta 2 that "Custom field data is now cached so it can be accessed throughout the software without the need for a query to gather the data."

    Maybe this will make it easier to integrate this mod with vBa Links. Also, if you integrate it with vBa Links and give it freely to the Public, then you can take a share of the credit for the project. Please help if you have the ability to finish this. We would all be thankful.

    Added Note:

    I reserve the right to keep this code on VBA Links ONLY. This can not be distributed to other boards and is only to be used by the VBAdvanced/VBA Links community.

    Is it possible to have a drop-down list in the Navbar menu of User Sub-categories? It shouldn't be too hard, right?

    If someone is interested, I can pay them to make this. Then share it here with the community. (I even have some sample code to use as a guide.)

    Can I put my user personalized links in a drop down menu (that would automatically be updated every time a user adds a link)?
    So what is it that you want finally?

    Actually, my 1st choice would be a Navbar drop-down menu of my personal links.

    My 2nd choice (maybe a different drop-down menu) would be of Categories/Sub-Categories.

    The individual personal links would be more important to me though.

    To answer your question, my 1st choice would be a Navbar drop-down menu of my personal links.

    Does this mean that you may help? I can send you a good guide for how to display the drop-downs.

    No need to... I already implemented that a while back on most of my sites, but it's encrypted and not for release

    Sorry Lionel. I misunderstood. I just feel very embarrassed that I'm not a good enough programmer to do this myself. I wish there was someone good enough to make this for me.

    I would even be willing to pay for it, but it seems there's no one who is willing to help me.

    Added a Beta version of Drop-down Links Menu without any vBA Links Integration. Our hope is that some kind person will take this mod to the next level and then share it with the rest of the vbA Links community.
