    Hi Glenn, nice you are back.

    I was wondering about adding the flags icon in the postbit.

    We are using vb 5.6.4

    Thanks!

    The sprite image containing all the icons used in vB5 has changed since this mod was posted. That's why the image icon will not show up. To find where the new location of the sprite image file is, right-click any of the icons on your forum and then choose Inspect. Observe the background used and locate the image path inside the "url(" and ")". Copy that path and use it in the CSS code. I will update the first post with this instruction.

    What other fields? If custom profile fields then there's no way to show it via CSS if it's not present in the HTML source in the first place.

    Thank you Glenn! Adds back to vBulletin 5 some of the look and feel we had gotten accustomed to in vBulletin 4.2.5.

    By default, vBulletin 5 only displays the Join Date and Post count in the postbit area (avatar and username section) in the thread view of a topic. There may be other tutorials out there to add custom fields in postbit but some require you to edit the existing postbit template. Editing existing templates is not good for maintenance reasons as you would have to resolve template merge conflicts every time you upgrade. Or some might require you to create a template hook and repeatedly copy/paste template code for adding multiple fields and change instances of profile field variable names. Another maintenance nightmare.

    Don't look any further, here's the mod that is simple but rocks! Simply download the zip file, uncompress it and upload the XML in AdminCP > Products & Hooks > Manage Products > [Add/Import Product] and you're good to go. By default, it adds Location and Occupation profile fields. You can configure what profile fields to add in AdminCP > Settings > Options > Custom Profile Fields in Postbit Settings.

    As a bonus, the mod also adds "Send PM" link to the postbit to make it easier for users to send a private message to a user while reading a thread. You can also configure that in the Custom Profile Fields in Postbit Settings.

    Demo:
    Look at the postbit section on this thread.

    Upgrade Instructions:
    If you are upgrading this mod from an older version, choose Yes in the "Allow Overwrite" radio button when importing the XML file.

    Customizations:
    To add the existing envelope icon in the default icon sprite image to the Send PM link, add the below custom CSS in css_additional template in AdminCP or in Sitebuilder > Style > CSS Editor.
    Code:
    .send-pm-in-postbit:before {
    content: '';
    width: 15px;
    height: 14px;
    position: relative;
    bottom: -1px;
    background: transparent url('images/css/sprite_icons_vb_ltr.png') no-repeat scroll [COLOR=#FF0000]-16px[/COLOR] -176px;
    display: inline-block;
    margin-right: 3px;
    }
    For dark colored themes, you can use the light colored envelope icon by changing -16px to 0 in the background value above.

    Version History:
    v1.1
    • Added rel="nofollow" to Send PM link to prevent search engines to follow the link and get Access denied error.
    v1.0
    • Initial version.
    can you help with css code like this field to add other fields without using products

    the mod working fine on vb 5.6.4 but the "SEND PM" icon doesn't work because of the system update
    Code:
    .send-pm-in-postbit:before {
    content: '';
    width: 15px;
    height: 14px;
    position: relative;
    bottom: -1px;
    background: transparent url('images/css/sprite_icons_vb_ltr.png') no-repeat scroll [COLOR=#FF0000]-16px[/COLOR] -176px;
    display: inline-block;
    margin-right: 3px;
    }
    Can someone update the updated code to the system?

    I want to add a link to send tips via cashapp. How could i go about adding something like <vb:if condition="$post['field5']"><div class="postdata">Send Tip: <a href="h.t.t.p.w.w.w.//cashapp.c.o.m/$post[field5]">CashApp</a></div></vb:if> and making it work correctly?

    Display of users who have selected to remain in Invisible Mode is a deal breaker.

    The mod is still supported? vB 5.6.1, PHP 7.3.18

    I've recently upgraded vBulletin to the current v5.6.1. Used similar mod in vb4. Still examining new features & directory.

    The text for the fields displays where it should, but I'm unable to get the images to display. Verified Profile Fields are still configured, in the PF Manager and Options have correct fields in main dashboard.

    Where should images be stored on server in the vB directory? Chmodding should be set to...? Am I performing template edits?

    Thank you for any insight.
