Can the same as UBB.classic, in the topic page show the user registration number?
This is a way to motivate registration.
For the someone have used UBB.classic, this is unique to UBB.classic.I think so.

Or tell me how to implement it, thanks very much!

You can see the member id by hovering over the "view profile" link. It seems like a waste of space to add a row to the member dropdown for just their ID when it exists in the edit user and view profile links...

I don't think you get the effect the admin is asking for by hovering over it.

It seems like a simple request so why not add it? Even if a dev thinks it's a waste of his time.

Because I saw this topic pop up in my email notifications, I loaded up my oldest VirtualBox install of UBB, which is from UBB.threads version 6.2.3, Release March 4th, 2003. I did not notice a user number listed on that page at all. Maybe my install was modded out, since the user numbers could be found on the View Profile page, User List, hovering over the user avatar, or any other numbers of ways. Or maybe it just was never there? Who knows.

But the entire point of your post is that you want to add that bit of information to always be displayed on the post page. So here goes! laugh

For "user info on side" template:
in /templates/default/post_side.tpl
FIND:
Code
{if $postrow[post].Location}

REPLACE WITH:
Code
User # {$postrow[post].userid}<br>
{if $postrow[post].Location}

There are two locations within that file. One is for the mobile view, and the other is for the desktop view.

If you wanted to add it to your post_top file, the procedure is the same, but its only in there one time.
that file is: /templates/default/post_top.tpl

Edit the "User # " text as you desire.

And thats it. Cheers laugh

I remember having member number 1 in the classic and when converting it to threads it became number 2 so one could not have the same number I guess.

User #1 is the reserved "Guest"/"Anonymous" user in UBB.threads.

You speak of a time from "Internet 1.0"... before the bubble popped.

When WinAMP was how we played music downloaded from kaza, limewire, Napster, and shady web/ftp sites.

A time from which low ICQ member numbers, and three character AOL and Hotmail addresses were what measured us all.

A time when people purchased web browsers.

WOW i remember all that
I know I started with a TANDY 1000 and then with a custom built tower with a dialup connection 1200 baud 640 k memory and no real internet.
There were BBS sites and they were linked together with some type of hopping where they migrated posts to each other.
At that time I had a 50mhz cpu 640k memory and a 200MB drive and a 1200baud modem. I thought I would never need to upgrade again..
Then windows 3.0 came out. at least that was the first version I purchased. Then playing with ini files to get enhanced mode.

Now it is 23 TB of drives 8MB memory and 1 Gb nic card and 3GHZ cpu and I think it is slow.


Just showing my age I guess.

It's funny, we went from computers so huge they take up a building to a little slow device we can have in our homes... Now they're little fast machines and the big computing talk is about Quantum Computing... Huge leaps!

I remember when AOL surfaced.
You had a dial up connection.
Then if you had money to burn you purchased netscape then ran it on top of AOL.
It ate up all your memory and processor speed.

But it was still fun.

Did not notice that this post has so many replies.
The topic of discussion seems to be nostalgic. People who like to play forums are not young at all.
Anyway, I got wanted, thanks to all those who responded to this post.
