  • New Thread options in VB5

    Hello,

    I am pretty new to Vb5. i used to use Vb 4.
    i have few questions regarding VB5

    1. How can i get the New thread option similar like VB4 in Vb5. I see that in VB5 has only Share photos, Attachment link, poll and insert calendar.
    where as in VB4, we get smiles, move the thread into middle, bold font, numbered list, underline font etc
    2. in Vb4, we can right click on NEW topic and open it on new tab or new windows. how can i do it similarly to VB5
    3. how to move attachments from database to filestore


    Appreciate the help

    1) Smileys, Attachments, and the full editor menu are the three buttons on the right at the top of the editor. If they open the editor menu and do not delete their cookies, it should be open for them regularly.

    2) There is no way built into this. It goes against Mobile programming practices. The same editor is used on all devices. phone, tablet, and desktop formats. What is the benefit and use case of doing this?
    3) The exact same way you did in vBulletin 4. You log into the AdminCP and go to Attachments -> Attachment Storage Type.

        There is a plug-in you can use that makes the editor toolbar display by default, instead of having to open it each time.

        Although we donít support plugins, Iíím happy to help you sort that out if you wish.

        I use it on my demo site. Wonít work on cloud sites but can be used on self hosted.

              Here's the details. Most of this was written by Glenn from https://vbmods.rocks - an independent but very useful site for vB5 add ons. Glenn is a former vB5 developer so knows what he's talking about.

              To do what I did on my demo site:

              Add a template hook:
              AdminCP > Products & Hooks > Manage Template Hooks > Add New Hook

              Title: Advanced Editor on by default
              Location: editor_after_secondary_toolbar_icons
              Template Name: advanced_editor

              Leave everything else as default.
              Save

              Then go to AdminCP > Styles > Style Manager
              For the style you are using, select "Add New Templte" from the dropdown on the right.
              Title: advanced_editor
              Template code:
              Code:
              <script>
              (function() {
                  var loadAdvancedEditor = function() {
                      var editorToolbar = document.querySelector('.b-toolbar__item[data-panel="b-content-entry-panel__content--toggle-editor"]:not(.b-toolbar__item--active)');
                      editorToolbar && editorToolbar.click();
                  };
                  if (window.addEventListener) {
                      window.addEventListener('load', loadAdvancedEditor, false);
                  }
                  else if (window.attachEvent) {
                      window.attachEvent('onload', loadAdvancedEditor);
                  }
              })();
              </script>
              Leave everything else default, and save.

              That's it.

                  Can you please raise a support ticket, and mark it for my attention (just add FAO Mark.B to the title)?
                  I'll need your admincp credentials, so I can take a look.

                  You can raise a ticket here: http://www.vbulletin.com/go/techsupport

                  Please use the "Sensitive Data" field to provide the admincp credentials.

                    Claims to do the same thing.

                      That's just removing AJAX from things like pagination, and making them full page loads. Different issue.

                        The template title has no underscore in the instructions. It should be advanced_editor
