View Full Version : QuickClip - A Clipboard for Users


Alan @ CIT
15 Dec 2005, 19:44
Introduction

QuickClip allows your members to store frequently used snippets of text that they can then quickly and easily use as replies to threads and private messages.

QuickClip is based on the familier Private Messaging interface, so will be instantly familier to your users and will help cut down support queries such as "Where is the such-and-such button?".

As the forum administrator, you can keep full control over your members QuickClips usage by limiting the number of clips and folders they can create, or even banning them from using it completly.

All of this is controlled by Usergroup access, with default settings in vBulletin Options.

Features

Fully template driven so it will blend into the look and feel of your site
Fully phrased, making translation to other languages a breeze
Fully integrated with the vBulletin User CP
New: QuickClip Reply boxes for posting your QuickClips in Threads and Private Messages
New: An option to include your signautre when posting replies using QuickClips
Fully controllable limits on Clips and Folders, including the option to have No Limit
New: The ability to Preview your QuickClip before saving
...Plus so much more! Take a look at the screenshots below!Installation / Upgrading

Please see the install.html and upgrade.html files in the zip


New in Version 1.1

You can now reply to Private Messages using QuickClips
You can now Preview new QuickClips when creating or editing them
You can now select the folder to save to when creating a new clip
The QuickClip Reply box no longer displays if the user has no clips
You now have the option of adding your signature when replying using a QuickClip
When viewing your list of QuickClips, BBCode tags are removed to make viewing easier
Fixed a missing error message
Removed some hard-coded text and replaced it with a phrase
Fixed a bug which occasionally caused an SQL errorCredits
Thanks go to Danny.vbt for testing, to SomeName for proof-reading the Installation Guide, and for everyone who has made suggestions or helped to find bugs :)

My thanks goes to everyone of you who has installed QuickClip, and to those who have posted in this thread :)


Important: Unfortunately, my leased vBulletin licence has now expired, and I won't be renewing it until September which means I will be unable to reply to this thread, or update this mod until then. I'm hopeful that the great vBulletin.org community will step in to answer any questions in my absence though :) See you all in early September! :D

Is this similar to the IPB topic multimoderation feature?
Where with the click of one button you can post a redefined message and "possibly" apply a specific moderation action, such as close or move at the same time too? Looks interesting.

Alan @ CIT
15 Dec 2005, 21:21
This hack doesn't allow for modeation actions, as it's designed for all users :)

But it does allow quick replies of pre-set text (that you can edit from your User CP) with a couple of clicks :)

Could it be possible to make this feature accessible to certain groups only?

Alan @ CIT
15 Dec 2005, 21:38
It has that feature by default. It's controlled by Usergroup permissions. Once installed, you will need to go into each of the usergroups you want to be able to use QuickClip, and set "Can Use QuickClip" to "Yes" :)

See the last section of install.html for more details :)

Edit: Sorry, did you mean add the moderation thing? If so, then I've no plans to add something like that to this hack at this time :)

cool idea. does this just post in threads? what about PM, usernotes, reputation, etc...?

Mr Chad
16 Dec 2005, 01:31
this is pretty damn tight.

when you edit your clip does it change all others?

When I try to post, it tells me "You did not specifiy a username for your post

Sorry, I can't seem to reproduce this. Would it be possible to set me up a user account on your forum that has permission to use QuickClip so that I might test it? Thanks.

Master: That is the User Control Panel navigation menu (down the left side). The first template edit mentinoed in install.txt will add that.

Antivirus: At the moment, it only has an automated way to post replies to threads. I didn't think about the other items you mentioned, so I'll add them to a future version's todo list :)

Chatbum: No, once posted, it isn't edited if you change the clip in QuickClip later.

Everyone else: Thanks for installing and using QuickClip and the kind words :) :) :)

I get the following error message when I try to open a private Message now:

Database error in vBulletin 3.5.2:

Invalid SQL:

Alan @ CIT
16 Dec 2005, 08:57
jluerken: At what point exactly do you recieve that error? ie, when you enter the User CP? when you click the List Messages link? When you click on a private message to view it? etc.

Thanks,
Alan.

Lionel
16 Dec 2005, 09:04
I get the same too, when I click on the message link in usercp

Alan @ CIT
16 Dec 2005, 09:10
I can't reproduce this at all, but...

In the attached zip file, there is a file called class_folder.php. Please put this file in /forum/includes/quickclip/ making sure you overwrite the one that is already there.

This should fix the error. Please let me know if it does :)

Thanks,
Alan.

Lionel
16 Dec 2005, 09:15
that did not fix it for me, and I still have the other error. I am investigating that it is not conflicting with another hack.

Lionel
16 Dec 2005, 09:18
I think it must be in product Look at the id next to order.

FROM `vb3_quickclip_folders`WHERE `owner` = 3ORDER BY `id` ASC;

Alan @ CIT
16 Dec 2005, 09:23
Indeed, and in the new class_folder.php, there is a space before order:

$fetch_many_q .= " ORDER BY `id` ASC";

Which should fix the problem.

Are you certain that you overwrote the existing class_folder.php when you copied over the new one?

Thanks,
Alan.

16 Dec 2005, 10:19
I have questions:

1- When I use the quickclips, it does not show me my signature in the post. So how can I make it to preview it?

2- When a user didn't creat any new clips, it still show the quickclip table in the show thread. So, can I remove the table till a user creat a new clip?

Kind regards ..

Alan @ CIT
16 Dec 2005, 10:21
BoYagoob: I'll add both of those options in the next version which should be released in the next day or so.

Superb - definite HOTM material.

Alan @ CIT
16 Dec 2005, 10:30
BoYagoob,

In the mean time, here are the changes you need to make to add a "Use Signature" tickbox:

Edit the quickclip_replybox template (in the "QuickClip Templates" group) and find:

$quickclip_dropdown

Directly after that, add:

<label for="cb_signature"><input type="checkbox" name="signature" value="1" id="cb_signature" tabindex="5" checked="checked" />$vbphrase[show_your_signature]</label>

Alan @ CIT
16 Dec 2005, 10:31

Motion seconded! Motion carried!

Horray! I win HOTM! :D

MrNase
16 Dec 2005, 11:01
One suggestion: Could you make it so that the content of the QuickClip automatically gets pasted into the textarea so that it is some kind of template which can be edited before posting? :)

Alan @ CIT
16 Dec 2005, 11:12
MrNase,

That was my original plan, but has been pushed back to a future version :)

Thanks,
Alan.

BoYagoob
16 Dec 2005, 11:14
Thanks Alan @ CIT,

but I have a new problem.
When you update the new file, and I changed it only for my forum, in the private messeages, the style becomes Left to right, beacuse the defualt is from right to left. can you fix that in the next version?

Alan @ CIT
16 Dec 2005, 11:38
Sorry, I don't fully understand what you mean. Could you show me a screenshot of what it's supposed to look like, and a screenshot of what it looks like when it's broken?

Thanks.

Sorry, I don't fully understand what you mean. Could you show me a screenshot of what it's supposed to look like, and a screenshot of what it looks like when it's broken?

Thanks.

Actually, I have just uninstall it, beacuse I wait for the new version.

My problem is that, if you didn't understant I will install it again:

- My site is R-L,
like this: http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/?langid=3

- after I put the fixed file for your hack, the style or the langauge become L-R in the private message area.

If this is not clear to you, I will try again and attach screenshots.

Alan @ CIT
16 Dec 2005, 12:33
ok, I understand what you mean now.

I've never used R-L text before, so I'll run some tests on my development board and see what I come up with.

Thanks,
Alan.

16 Dec 2005, 12:52
Trying to fix the no sig issue, I don't see

$replybox

In the quickclip_replybox template?

Alan @ CIT
16 Dec 2005, 12:58
Ooops, sorry - I meant find:

$quickclip_dropdown

I will edit my original post :)

TheMusicMan
16 Dec 2005, 13:14
That sorted it thanks Alan.

Do I need to amend the new class_folder.php file too? I see in another post here that you advised someone to reupload theirs... not sure if that applies to everyone?

Alan @ CIT
16 Dec 2005, 13:18
It's only really needed if you get an SQL error when you enter the User CP.

But, I've updated the main zip with the fixed file, and it certainly won't break anything if you upload it :)

derekivey
16 Dec 2005, 13:23
Hey Alan,

I just thought of a suggestion,

maybe allow the variable $username to be in quick clips, and add a field by the drop down that allows you to input a username so that it posts their username in the message too like this:

Hello $username,

other text.


Just a suggestion.
Derek

Hi Alan @ CIT,
I tested it now, and the problem is seen when I enther the UserCP.

See these pics:

UserCP:

==================

But in the old file which is in the /includes dirctory, works fine witrhout any problem.

BoYagoob
16 Dec 2005, 13:48
Can you tell me please, what is the difference between rhe new and old one of this file:
class_folder.php

for the old one, it works fine.

Alan @ CIT
16 Dec 2005, 14:01
There is almost no difference.

The old one had:

... = "ORDER BY `id` ASC";

The new one has:

... = " ORDER BY `id` ASC";

That's the only change.

Derek: Good idea mate, I'll see if I can work that into the next version :)

BoYagoob
16 Dec 2005, 14:13
Alan,
I noticed there is another diffrence.

In the first line in the new file, this appear:

``<?php
/**
* QuickClip
* A user clipboard system for vBulletin 3.5

when I removed the: ``

it works fine.

Maybe, is this a bug?

Alan @ CIT
16 Dec 2005, 14:20
Well spotted Boyagoob, that was indeed what was causing the problem. Not entirely sure how those 2 backticks got in there, must have been me pressing random keys again :)

I have updated the release zip and the class_folder.zip file with the `` removed.

Thanks,
Alan.

It's got a some great new features, so I don't think you'll be disapointed :)

Alan @ CIT
16 Dec 2005, 18:48

* You now have the option of adding your signature when replying using a QuickClip
* When viewing your list of QuickClips, BBCode tags are removed to make viewing easier
* Fixed a missing error message
* Removed some hard-coded text and replaced it with a phrase
* Fixed a bug which occasionally caused an SQL error

As usual folks, any suggestiosn / comments / complaints / questions / etc are more than welcome :)

Enjoy! :)

jluerken
16 Dec 2005, 19:37
I have two ideas for version 1.2

1.
The admins should be able in the admincp to create default QuickClips for other groups.

For example:
The admin creates a default QuickClip for the Group Moderators.
Moderators should not be able to modify or delete this
and it should only be shown if the group is allowed to view QuickClips.

This means that disabling the group to use QuickClips should also deactivate the default ones which are set by the admin.

2.
Create QuickClip Pool.

There should be a new option called:
Allow user to send a QuickClip to the Pool

The Pool should be an area where all usergroups who are allowed to view it can see other users QuickClips.

Example:
I am admin and allowed to view the pool.
I send one of my private QuickClips to it.

A Moderator who is also allowed to see the pool marks all QuickClips he finds useful and adds them by marking a hitbox to his own private QuickClip list.

Only the creator or an admin should be able to remove a Item from the pool or modify it.

Regards
jluerken

Alan @ CIT, I would like to tell you something :(























































In my opinion, it is the most perfect hack, and you are one of the most professional coder in the world. :)

Million million thanks Alan,
everything works smoothly and very fine.

But, I have only one question: :nervous:

How can I remove the content from displaying?

because, in my langauge, it cannot be displayed very well, it display strange char.:
see this pic:

http://www.qatarp.com/files/12/thanksAlan.jpg

My lanagauge uses: windows encoding.

So, I am just looking how to remove this in the red recangular from displaying.

Thanks again
Kind regards ..

Alan @ CIT
16 Dec 2005, 20:13
BoYagoob: To remove the preview text, edit the quickclip_listclips_listbit template, and remove:

<span class="smallfont">$clip_text_snipped</span>

I believe I know why the text is displaying incorrectly, I will investigate and get back to you :)

jluerken: Thanks for the feature suggestions, I will bear them in mind for future versions :)

Thanks,
Alan.

BoYagoob
16 Dec 2005, 20:26
Thanks a lot my friend.
I fixed and remove that, I think it will not be a problem for me if i remove it.
and now, I have just finished translating it to my lanaguage in my forum, and I will publish it for my members. I am sure they will like it, becase they will use it in certain sections especially the welcome section for the new members, and for me as an admin of course.

Thanks for this best hack. :)

Looks fantastic.
I have an issue with the PM feature.

The reply works great but if I try to delete a PM while viewing it using the:

Delete Message
To delete this message, check the appropriate option below and then click the 'Delete this Message' button.

I select the confirmation box and click Delete thi Message without touching anything on the QuickClip section below. It does not delete the message and sends the canned reply that is selected by default to the user who's message I am trying to delete. I can delete messages just fine using the check boxes and the Delete option when viewing the message list in a folder.

When I try to post, it tells me
You did not specify a username for your post

Alan I sent you a PM. This is being caused by the "Advanced editing options" hack at look location newpost_process or newpost_complete. It appears that this hack monopolizes newreply and allows only for quickreply to go thru.

I disabled those two hooks and all is well.

RMS-Chef
16 Dec 2005, 21:42
This also seems to conflit with Psionic Visions "Adv. Editing Options for Mods and Admins" located here: 98737. When I have it enabled with this hack and try to use a QuickClip reply to a post, I get an error message from what appears to be his hack that reads:
"The following errors occurred when this message was submitted:
You did not specify a username for your post."

When I disable his product the post QuickClip reply works fine but the delete PM issue is still there.

I would say that we loose everything. Adv Editing becomes useless, in my opinion. I posted in there, hopefully he will fix it. My opinion is that the problem is his, because he monopolizes that location which means no other hacks will work if they need to use same location or same process.

Cool.
I really only use it for changing post dates and post authors which still seems to work fine on editpost.php. I imagine these hooks have somthing to do with if you are limiting editing options based on groups which I do not use it for at this time.

But the delete PM issue above has me disabling this for now.

Great extension Alan, working 100% :)

I have a question,
Is it possible to use QuickClip when i making a new thread.

Lionel
17 Dec 2005, 00:14
The template for showthread is not allowing for signature like in PM

akanevsky
17 Dec 2005, 15:33
Great hack but.... If QuickClip was based on JavaScript, and worked somewhat like BBCODE, it would be much easier to integrate into any textarea :)) Or, it could also work like "quote message in reply", but in your case it'd be "put the following quickclip in reply".

michaelbenson
17 Dec 2005, 16:12
It has that feature by default. It's controlled by Usergroup permissions. Once installed, you will need to go into each of the usergroups you want to be able to use QuickClip, and set "Can Use QuickClip" to "Yes" :)

See the last section of install.html for more details :)

Edit: Sorry, did you mean add the moderation thing? If so, then I've no plans to add something like that to this hack at this time :)
Thanks for the update, i have still installed the product and i guess i'll just enable this for Administrators and Moderators only.

BoYagoob
19 Dec 2005, 20:43
Alan, may I have a question?

when I post a reply by QuickClip to a thread, it subcribe me to that thread by defualt. So, how can I make it as "Do Not subscribe" ?

Kind regards ..

Something for when you come back :p

For some reason, my supermods can't see this feature in their CPs....does this thing ignore 2ndary groups? or does it skip them? Admins see it fine, Supermods, no joy. I checked the permissions and everything else I could think of...i'm at a loss...

Hi all,

I have now returned from my holidays, hope you all had a good <insert-seasonal-holiday-name-here> :)

I'll start answering any questions, fixing any bugs, and adding any new features next week, but I've got a lot of hacks to update, so it might not be immediate :)

Thanks,
Alan.

Does this allow you to set global responses, so I can have canned replys that my entire support team use?

edit I got this error when trying to go to the usercp after installing this, and everything was done correctly.

Warning: Unknown(/home/gamerzne/public_html/forums/includes/quickclip/class_folder.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /includes/functions_user.php(46) : eval()'d code on line 4

Fatal error: (null)(): Failed opening required '/home/gamerzne/public_html/forums/includes/quickclip/class_folder.php' (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php') in /home/gamerzne/public_html/forums/includes/functions_user.php(46) : eval()'d code on line 4




i think the problem is with my host, the files are in there but i just uploaded a picture and when i go to view it, it doesnt show, but its there. I'll contact my host and find out whats going on, as i think this is a problem with my host.

The arrangment of the tables in the UserCP isn't right.

How can I fix this?

In the User CP, the messages, etc., are now forced down to below the usercp menu on the left. In other words, there is a huge blank space where there shouldn't be.

Great hack, btw.

I was deleting a private message today and instead of deleting the message, it sent a quick clip to me. Now quick clip box is underneath the delete option in the private message area but I did this three times to make sure I didn't accidentially hit it by mistake.

Any ideas?

Matt, you probably put the new code "between"....... </table> and <!-- / usercp nav --> instead of right on top. :)

When I reply to a thread using the quick reply box (but don't use Quick Clip) The Alt-S shortcut doesn't work?

If I mouse click the Submit Quick Reply it works, but hitting Alt + S it doesn't.

Anyone else have this or know how to fix it?

Hi Alan,

I am using vB 3.5.4 and found a small bug in the QuickClip Product.

If you quick reply on a thread the signature will not be shown anymore.
See Screenshots:

Hi Allan, I really love the concept of this hack, however the current version has a few bugs (see previous posts please) and I am just wondering if you have plans to update this hack, or if development of it has been discoutinued. Please let us know, thanks!

Alan @ CIT

Hi all,

This hack is in development still, it's just still quite low down on my todo list :)

The only bugs I know of at the moment, are:

1) Bug affecting non-english forums
2) Documentation bug - to fix this, in the install instructions for the PM template bit, where it says "Add above </form>" - add it below instead. There is a post a few pages back saying this.

I'll try and update the hack tonight if I can.

Thanks,
Alan.

Alan, is there a way to have the drop down for the clips to be moved to the postbit (maybe under the username) and when you pick a clip, have it automatically bring up the new reply with the clip already posted into it?

Alan @ CIT
01 Jun 2006, 12:15
Hi Boofo,

Not at the moment I'm afraid. Something along those lines was always on my todo list, but I'm afraid I haven't had a chance to look into it recently.

Thanks,

Right now I have a link in the postbit that will do that but a drop down with many links in it would be better. I can send you what I have if that would help at all.

Alan @ CIT
01 Jun 2006, 12:31
Would you want the message your replying to to be quoted in the reply?

That might not be a bad idea. Maybe an option to turn that off and on? ;)

Alan @ CIT

Then I'm not sure what the difference will be to how it currently works :)

Is it just that you want to edit the reply before posting it?

Yes, It would be nice to have that option. All it would mean is that once I click one of the items in the drop, it would bring up the new reply with that item already in the message. Most often, I would click submit and it would be sent. But having the option to edit it first is always a good idea. Basically just having the drop down in the posbit would be the only real difference I guess. ;)

I'm got some work to do on another mod first, but when that's done, I'll take a look at adding a "Reply with Quickclip" dropdown to each post as well as having one at the bottom, as well as adding an option to edit the reply before posting it.

If I haven't done it in a couple of weeks, remind me because I'll have forgotten :)

No problem, sir. I'll see what I can come up with in the meantime. If I get anything on it, I will get the changes to you so you can add them. ;)

Alan,
I had contracted a dev here to build something very similar to this for me last year, it works on java script which allows you to insert the responses into the wysiwyg & title of the message, thus allowing you to edit it before sending or allowing you to append another response after the first. It also worked on usernotes, reputation, and send email (admincp) in addition to posts, threads, and PMs.

Who knows- it may assist in developing this hack, I am sure the dev we worked with wouldn't have a problem with it, so long as he were acknowledged in the event some of his code ended up being used.

If you're interested in checking out the code, please PM me. :)

Reminder... as requested... :)

I'd love to see the option of previewing the clip before submitting it. This would be a huge benefit to the hack as it would allow generic team clips to be created that could then be used by the entire support team and amended accordingly to suit the reason for posting.

Don't know if anyone else has had this problem, but when I have the quickclip installed, deleting of PMs doesn't work properly. When you're in the showpm (viewing a pm), and tick the box delete, and delete this message, it simply goes back to the inbox, without deleting the pm!

If I remove the code you're supposed to add in the template showpm, it works again.

Help would be appreciated!

I have done some quick testing after upgrading a mirror test board and it seems to function just fine.

Dexter_kcd
27 Aug 2006, 11:52
Thanks. I upgraded a week ago and only just now did the template edits for this. Seems to work fine in 3.6, except that when I am viewing the quickclip.php page, the control panel menu on the left side is a bit messed up, some blank table rows. It seems some of the menu locations are using old phrase variables that 3.6 does not recognize, so some menu items are missing.

Minor inconvenience, once I finish in quickclip.php I can just go back to the main control panel page and everything is there. Maybe I'll see if I can edit the quickclip.php page to have the right items in the menu.

Dexter...

I installed this on VB 3.6.2

If you answer a thread using Quickclip you cannot answer the thread with quickclip and NOT your signature again.
for example if you have to answer a thread with two quickclips.

After using replying with the first quickclip the small checkbox for the signature is grey and cannot be changed.

This is the fist bug I have seen in the actual version.

Second bug is the Create Quickclip Template. Its on old template not usable in firefox cause the smiliebox is to big.

Can someone fix those two issues please?
