    Hi Fyorl, I am incredibly grateful for all the hard work you're putting in to this. It still appears not to be working with v2.0.

    Not-so-funny story though, I uploaded the tar.gz to my server, untarred it and moved it to the extensions directory. I then refreshed my page and it still said UserInfo 1.3, I instantly assume you'd forgotten to change the version number in the default.php, so I change it to 2.0.

    It hadn't worked; a few hours later, I decided to have a look at UserInfo.js since I think the script is now being run, it's just not bringing up the intended pop-up box. My plan was to add the console.log lines somewhere (it's changed too much for me to do this anyway) but I notice that the lines are still there where I left them. Confused, I exit vi and then notice this in the scrollback:

    marrow@yoshi:~$ mv UserInfo ./public_html/vanilla/extensions/ mv: cannot move `UserInfo' to a subdirectory of itself, `./public_html/vanilla/extensions/UserInfo'

    You could try this: First, download UserInfo.tar.gz somewhere then type the following,
    $ cd /public_html/vanilla/extensions/ $ rm -rf UserInfo $ mv /path/to/UserInfo.tar.gz . $ tar xvf UserInfo.tar.gz $ rm UserInfo.tar.gz

    Updated to Mootools 1.5 and UserInfo 2.1 and it works! What did you do? You're a genius. I'm actually willing to make a small donation for all your hard work, seriously.. this cannot go unrewarded!

    You are a credit to the Vanilla community Fyorl.

    Well, it's a bit silly really (but most bugs are caused by silly mistakes). UserInfo simply didn't have all the Mootools modules it needed. I had forgotten to add Window.DomReady and Fx.Style in both the fallback script and in the Mootools AddComponent call. I can't believe it managed to slip through. The problem was that on my test forum I have a bunch of other Mootools extensions which were including the necessary modules and so I didn't notice anything. Also, apparently other people who tried this had the same thing since Window.DomReady and Fx.Style are such common modules. Oh well I'm glad it works, I appreciate the comments but I don't feel a donation's necessary since it was such a ridiculous mistake >_<

    could this be updated to also work on the list of discussions (started by ___ ... last comment by ___) (medium-low priority) and when will the info that's displayed be customizable? (low-low-low priority) EDIT: and also for the preview post extension (medium-low priority)
  • Options
    Yup, it's doable. What sort of customisation were you after? I might as well put all your requests in one release.
  • Options
    Basically, I want to be able to choose which user variables are displayed (Name and Role forced to be selected) You could make it a user preference, or a forum-wide preference (preferrably user, with forum-wide default settings used for unauthenticated) The bigger "problem" (not much of a problem, as I seem to have gotten by w/o this extension for so long) is that it isn't enabled on the main list of discussions, or the search page, etc.

    anyone having problems with this and Vanilla Voting for working together?

    user info retrieves the data, but it seems to be unable to build the tool-tip (btw, the userinfo.js file is added to the head section)

    maybe there exists a conflict or whatever in the JS.. :(

    any help? thanks!

    I cannot get this to work on my site:

    No idea what to do at all!

    Found this using FireBug:

    Class is not a constructor Line 33

    Any idea how to get this to work with Notify or Notifi? :(
