vB style profile link
I think it would be nice to have a vB style profile link, the one that's in a post.

So basicly that when you click my profile in this post (on my username) a dropdown menu appears with the same links as in vBulletin.

Go here, go to a post and click on a profile to see what I mean: http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/

RE: vB style profile link
Hi Kikkerking,
This can be mostly done with template edits.

I'm not going to bother with the fancy popup effect, but here's how to use MyBB's popup menu to achieve a similar effect.  Modify the following templates like follows:

postbit
Find:

HTML Code
{$post['user_details']}

Add under:

HTML Code
1
2
3
4
5
6
7
8
9
<div id="profilelink_{$post['uid']}_popup" class="popup_menu" style="display: none;">
<div class="popup_item_container">
<a href="{$mybb->settings['bburl']}/member.php?action=profile&amp;uid={$post['uid']}" class="popup_item">View this user's public profile</a>
</div>
{$post['button_email']}{$post['button_pm']}{$post['button_www']}{$post['button_find']}
</div>
<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
new PopupMenu("profilelink_{$post['uid']}");
</script>

Also find:

HTML Code
<span class="smalltext">{$post['button_email']}{$post['button_pm']}{$post['button_www']}{$post['button_find']}</span>

Replace with:

HTML Code
&nbsp;


postbit_pm
Replace entire template with:

HTML Code
<div class="popup_item_container">
<a href="{$mybb->settings['bburl']}/private.php?action=send&amp;uid={$post['uid']}" class="popup_item">{$lang->postbit_pm}</a>
</div>


postbit_www
Replace entire template with:

HTML Code
<div class="popup_item_container">
<a href="{$post['website']}" class="popup_item">{$lang->postbit_website}</a>
</div>


postbit_find
Replace entire template with:

HTML Code
<div class="popup_item_container">
<a href="{$mybb->settings['bburl']}/search.php?action=finduser&amp;uid={$post['uid']}" class="popup_item">{$lang->postbit_find}</a>
</div>


postbit_email
Replace template with:

HTML Code
<div class="popup_item_container">
<a href="{$mybb->settings['bburl']}/member.php?action=emailuser&amp;uid={$post['uid']}" class="popup_item">{$lang->postbit_email}</a>
</div>


Also, open up /inc/functions_post.php,
Find:

PHP Code:
$post['profilelink'] = "<a href=\"".str_replace("{uid}", $post['uid'], PROFILE_URL)."\">".format_name($post['username'], $post['usergroup'], $post['displaygroup'])."</a>";

Replace with:

PHP Code:
		$post['profilelink'] = "<a href=\"".str_replace("{uid}", $post['uid'], PROFILE_URL)."\" id=\"profilelink_{$post['uid']}\">".format_name($post['username'], $post['usergroup'], $post['displaygroup'])."</a>";



That's pretty much it.
If you have MyPlaza installed, and want a fade effect, in the above code for postbit, replace:

Javascript Code
new PopupMenu

with

Javascript Code
new MyPlazaPopupMenu



Note that, since this removes the buttons from the bottom of the post, it has the side effect that if a user has Javascript disabled, they can't directly access the links from the post.  Meh, vBulletin does that anyway, so it shouldn't be an issue Tongue
Hope that helps.

I haven't tried this with MyBB 1.4.

However, it'll still have a similar principle - ie, mostly a template edit.

{$seperator}
