Forum signatures

I am pleased to announce that the CycloDS Revolution forums now support forum signatures!

An example of a signature is in this thread… at the bottom of this first post.

Enjoy!

P.S. Part of this post is visible only to site members, because it contains instructions regarding how to create a signature (which anonymous users don't need to see). If you would like to see the whole post, please join the website or sign in to your account.

Hehe no it's something else ;-) When Wikidot was changing all of their back-end code to make private categories possible… they also made it possible for some other similar features.

To show something only to logged-in users, use this code:

[[module ListUsers users="."]]
 Stuff to hide from anonymous goes here
[[/module]]

Note, however, that you can only use it in certain places:

  • First post of a forum thread
  • Any pages you create
  • Any FAQs you create
  • Any skin description

Pretty much anywhere else, it won't work. That means you can't use it on your profile page, in an application's description, not even in a reply to threads or page comments.

So if you want to post a link that only site members can see, for example… it is possible using this code!

Okay, I've just changed the way signatures work. Anyone that added a signature has now lost what they typed in, but as signatures were only added yesterday I'm hoping that not too many people were affected.

Your signature is now edited in a different location — not your profile page. Go to your User Control Panel instead.

This should theoretically allow me to add signatures to replies as well. I'm going to try to do that now.

Hey Shane,

What method did you use to add the signature before?

I don't own a DS… I'm just here 'cause I'm awesome :)

I was using data forms, as part of a plan to eventually put all settings on the same page (profile page). That didn't work because it forced me to use ListPages.

I had a look at how you'd done it, and noticed you were using includes.

If nested modules ever gets done, I'll be changing it back straight away ;-)

Okay, I've hidden signatures by default and pending the approval of this design (rate it up here), I could possibly allow users to set a cookie in their browser that tells the website whether or not to show signatures by default for that computer (if you want to see signatures automatically, you can tell the website to do that for you).

The big bonus with this, is that it means you can put pretty much whatever you want into your signature (within reason), including medium-large images that would usually be a huge distraction. Open up my signature to see a huge image I've just put in there as an example.
