About This File

Create, store, and display unlimited custom index sidebar blocks without
needing to perform any file/skin edits. You can use plain text, bbcode,
html, javascript, or PHP. This means paypal donate buttons, youtube
videos, facebook like widgets, (so anything based on html and
javascript), or anything you can post in an IPB editor can be displayed
as an index block. System is cached so no extra querying is needed.

As of version 2.0, PHP blocks are possible. I will be providing block details for various blocks [url="http://emoneycodes.com/forums/forum/21-custom-sidebar-blocks-blocks/"]here[/url]. Here are the first couple:[list]

Global Settings include:[list]
[*]Show on Portal
[*]Show above default portal blocks or below
change position of all custom blocks via the drag/drop reordering of
the ACP->Manage Hooks page (and further ordering via the custom
blocks themselves)
[*]All blocks are completely sortable now with new Export Block feature
Per-Block Settings include:[list]
[*]Block Title
[*]Block Image
[*]Block Content
[*]Use IPB-standard Block Table to house contents
[*]Drag and Drop Sorting
[*]Raw Mode? (for javascript/adsense/widgets/facebook apps/twitter/etc)
[*]Remove Ability for User to Collapse Block? (Good for advertisements, donation buttons, etc)
[*]Enable Permissions
[*]View Permissions via built-in IPB permission masks
[*]PHP Support (with most/all IPB objects read, such as $this->memberData, $this->DB, etc)

new setting which turns off the IPB editor is to avoid parsing issues
with PHP and RAW blocks. If you want the editor so you can make bbcode
blocks easier, feel free to enable.
