BETTER PROFILE MENU v2.8
By Dougiefresh -> Link to Mod



Introduction
This mod alters the main menu's Profile menu to bring all the functionality of the profile area to the main forum's menu bar.

This mod was inspired by tip provided by snow in Lazy Admin Menu in order to make it easier for the admin to navigate straight to where they want to go.

The only difference is that this mod built dynamically, so that any changes to the profile menu are shown immediately.

Security Issue Notice
If you are running either VERSION 2.0 or VERSION 2.1, you are STRONGLY URGED to stop using the mod immediately and upgrade to the latest version, which addresses a MAJOR SECURITY ISSUE that has been resolved.  All version 1.x and version 2.2+ mods are not affected by this security issue!

User Settings
Under Profile => Modify Profile => Look and Layout, there is a new option:
o Better Profiles Menu setting

Each user can set it to one of the following:
o Completely Disabled => Exactly like this mod isn't installed :p
o Enabled => Exactly like this mod before version 2.4.
o Enabled with NoClick => Like Enabled, but clicking profile menu item only opens dropdown.

Translators
o Spanish Latin: Rock Lee

Compatibility Notes
This mod was tested on SMF 2.0.12, but should work on any version of SMF 2.0.x.  SMF 1.x and SMF 2.1 is not and will not be supported.

Evidentally, there was an error in the SMF 2.0.11 to 2.0.12 that prevents the forum from properly caching serialized stuff longer than 4096 bytes long.  This update fixes this problem, if it is present in your forum.

Changelog
The changelog has been removed and can be seen at XPtsp.com.

Awesome dude. Thanks for this. :)

Glad that my work on 2.1 inspired something good :)

I'd suggest backporting what 2.1 actually does but that would be hell for theme support.

Ask and thou shalt receive, eh?

Canine's gonads. :)

Steve

Apparently this mod and SMFPacks Shoutbox don't play nice together. Each time the shoutbox refreshes a bunch of errors are generated.

Care to share the error(s) so that they can be looked into?

Steve

Um, I'm not sure how to screenshot the errors without my board url and my IP showing. I'm willing to pm the screenshot to staff or the author if that would help.

Arantor

Copy/paste would work too, then you can edit it out before posting.

Steve

Does this help? These errors just repeat over and over each time the shoutbox refreshes.

That seems like a bug in this mod because it probably should avoid running when $_GET['xml'] is defined.

Uploaded v1.1 - August 1st, 2014
o Fixed errors generated by not having the Profiles language file loaded.

Thank you for the bug report, Steve!

This mod makes direct modifications to the Subs.php file in order to affect the Profiles menu changes.

Steve

You betcha. :D

Edit: just installed it and it works a treat. :D

Hrm, I am not a fan of additional performance hit. :(

I'd use integrate_pre_include to add the file, the integrate_menu_buttons hook to run, and only do anything if !isset($_GET['xml']) to limit the workload.

There's still a problem. With this installed, then going into board view or whatever the view is called that list the topics you'll see this for the last post times:





Grammatical error edit.

Need to preserve $txt['time_format'] before loading Profile.<language>.php.

v1.2 - August 2nd, 2014
o Rewrote mod so that menu replacement takes place in Subs-BetterProfileMenu.php....
o Added in code to preserve the original language text during the hook call...

Steve

Cool beans. That fixed the timestamp issue and seems to be working hunky-dory. :)

Steve

Then again ...

If I hover over 'Profile' and go down to 'Look and Layout' and click it, I get these two errors without even doing anything:



I don't know why it says anything about wysiwyg since I have it disabled ...

Arantor

That would appear to be the WYSIWYG Quick Reply mod since those are not present in a default installation.

Steve

You're probably right since I do have that mod installed. There are errors when I wanted to uninstall it so I'll have to do that manually which won't be tonight. :P
