    Default List of forum names in module?

    How do I get a list of just the forum names along with links to those forum names to appear in a module?

    Disco4Me,

    A new module could be written to do a PHP query to extract the list of names but.... I wouldn't do it. I had recently given though of doing something similar with vBa Links and vBa Gallery but decided in the end it'd be better to just do a static HTML template with the links besides adding a dynamic PHP module would add another query to the front page. Considering that most forums don't change names once they've been created the benefit of doing the list dynamically is outweighed by adding the extra query.

    KW802,

    I checked out your coolscifi site, nice job! Can I ask how you did the "Navigation" module? It would be nice to have that and then add what I was talking about above for a listing of the forum names that people could click directly into.

    Also, how did you do your "Quote of the Moment" module. Is that something that's fairly automated?

    I've got to ask why you have ibproarcade (running on invision I assume) when you have a vbulletin site. Are the user registrations seperate for your regular forum and the arcade because of the different boards?

    Thanks

    Disco4Me,

    Thanks for the compliments. Cool SciFi is my 'hobby-that-keeps-me-out-of-trouble' site. I'll try to go over some of the items....

    - Navigation Module: It's a slightly modified version of a navigation module that somebody released here at vBa. It's just a a static HTML template that has a few extra tags in it; for example, I alternate the colors when somebody hovers over the link, etcetra. If you'd like I can post the code here and you would just have to change the links to what you'd like instead.

    - The Quote of the Moment is based upon a hack over at VB.org. [Hack: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=62470 ]

    - The guys who did ibProArcade released a version that 'wraps' the Invision code inside of vBulletin so the same arcade system can be released on either Invision or vBulletin. [Hack: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=70903 ]

    Kevin,

    Thanks. Yes, if you'd like to post the navigation module, I think I'd be interested in using it.

    Thanks

    Here's the exact template for my navigation module; the graphics will be automatically picked up from your own style, please don't use the ones from my site.

    - Create a new template named "adv_portal_navigation" (ACP --> Styles & Templates --> Style Manager --> {select your parent style} Add New Template):
    PHP Code:
    <!-- Navigation Block -->
    <
    table align="center" border="0" cellpadding="$stylevar[cellpadding]cellspacing="$stylevar[cellspacing]class="tborder" width="100%">
    <
    tr>
    <
    td class="tcat"><strong><span class="smallfont">$vba_options[portal_blockbullet$mods[title]</span></strong></td>
    </
    tr>
    <
    tr>
    <
    td class="alt1">
        <!-- 
    Home -->
        <
    table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="100%">
        <
    tr><td><img src="$stylevar[imgdir_misc]/navbits_start.gif" alt=""/> <b>Our Community</b></td></tr>
        <
    tr onmouseover="this.className='alt2'" onmouseout="this.className='alt1'"><td><img src="$stylevar[imgdir_misc]/navbits_finallink.gif" alt=""/> <a href="$vboptions[homeurl]title="Go to the front page">Home</a></td></tr>
        <
    tr onmouseover="this.className='alt2'" onmouseout="this.className='alt1'"><td><img src="$stylevar[imgdir_misc]/navbits_finallink.gif" alt=""/> <a href="$vboptions[bburl]/$vboptions[forumhome].php?$session[sessionurl]">Forums</a></td></tr>

        </
    table>
    </
    td></tr>
    </
    table>
    <
    br />
    <!-- 
    End Navigation Block --> 
    - Replace the links to your own listings. Don't forget to replace the 'title' tags as well; those are the descriptions that show in the bubble box when hovering over the link.

    - Create a new module in CMPS (ACP --> vBa CMPS --> Add Module):
    • Module Title (this will show up in the module on your front page as the name of the box) = Navigation
    • Or Template to include = navigation
    • Active = Yes
    • Column = Left Column
    • Display Order = 0
    ... and that should do it.

    Excellent. Thank you so much. This should be a nice addition. And the quotes looks easy to install.

    No problem. If you want to use the quotes only on your CMPS page and not in the forums then be sure to check here.
