[AJAX] vB Pager 3.0.4


Hack Version: 3.0.4
vB-version: 3.5.x
Developer: WwW.UAEWEB.CoM (http://www.uaeweb.com/)
Install-difficulty: Few minutes!

Introduction:
vB Pager is a text-based instant messaging system over your community between members. Users can exchange short & quick messages amongst each other. Unlike the regular private messaging system, the paged user is guaranteed to read your message & reply to it (if you choose this option) instantly & easily.

Features:
Uses AJAX Technology to Send pager messages / Get pager messages / Add & Remove a member to buddy list / Add & Remove a member from Ignore list. (No Refresh Required)
Main Features:

vB Pager Buddy List ‘pop-up’ window is used to keep track of the friends you wish to interact with. By going to your "vB Pager Buddies", you'll be able to see which of your friends are currently online and offline, and be able to send them a pager message. Adding people to your buddy list also allow you to send pager messages to multiple forum members at the same time. You may add any member of the forums to your buddy list by clicking the icon next to their names in the vB Pager Online Members Page or Clicking the Manage Buddies Link to add/remove members into your list.
vB Pager Ignore List ‘pop-up’ window lists are used for those people who's messages you wish not recieve from.
Received Pager Messages are Draggable Inline Popups.
Sending a message opens up a small window where you can type in message to be sent.
Optional Anonymity: you can choose to hide your username when paging another user on the forum, & define which Usergroup can utilize this option.
The window comes in with a built-in character counter to enable the user to keep track of the characters typed.
Logs of all incoming and outgoing pager messages ‘Inbox/Sent Items’ member has, can be viewed and deleted.
Download Stored Messages as XML, CSV, TXT.
Members can turn the vB Pager Off anytime they wish not to receive pager messages, and they can select the option to receive pager messages from those who are in their Pager Buddy List only.

nota: uae is talking about CPanel, but it is UserCP!

also... it is working properly, have tested it...

btw, as you have more control with vb Pager than with the PM system, you can deactivate this last one and only work with vb Pager... ;)

MrNase
06 Jan 2006, 12:59
WOW thats great! Does this allow real-time chat like ICQ..? :)

I think of a PopUp that comes up once you have a new message in which you can reply to that message and things like that.

I'll just give it a try and see ;)

06 Jan 2006, 13:08
it is kinda like a realtime chat MrNase ... the only detail is that it doesn't show the last messages read/writen.... i suggested that to UAE long time ago... as it have now history in the system, i suppose it will be easy for a coder to add that feature...

for the popup you talk about, it IS actually that... you receive a popup when you receive a message.. the popup is activated by AJAX... if your browser does not allow it, the popup will show when you load a new page.

Great add-on. It's working fine, but i dont have the "Pager messages" shown here http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/attachment.php?attachmentid=40497

// edit: excuse me, it shows, if the user has the permission to use the pager! But the link does not work on my vbadvanced Homepage, just on the forum page. can you fix this or give me a hint?


And also a question: It only shows up the pager messages, if you reload a page, correct? Mine does so. Only when i reload a page. Is this the way it should work?

Thanks for that !

Hey Wachtmeister!

I can't confirm the first one, I can see the statistics.
Second thing: Setup the extension via the vBPage options and give 'vB Pager AJAX Check Period' a value. I set it to 30 (30 seconds).


Some things I noticed:
The popup is misaligned with Opera.. It's too far down on the website.

We need some confirmation after a message is send. When I click the button to send a new pager message to user X and the new window comes up, there's no confirmation at all when the message is send. It only switches back to the list of online users and at first I wasn't sure if the message was send or not.

Some things I noticed:
The popup is misaligned with Opera.. It's too far down on the website.
Opera is not following a single W3C protocol, so it occurs that Opera gives a lot of troubles to the web designers... contact the Opera guys and tell them you paid for their browser and it is having problem displaying Compliant XHTML! -- this is my 2¢ btw, not UAE or others'..

We need some confirmation after a message is send. When I click the button to send a new pager message to user X and the new window comes up, there's no confirmation at all when the message is send. It only switches back to the list of online users and at first I wasn't sure if the message was send or not.
... in ICQ, MSN, Yahoo etc, you never have a single confirmation that the message is sent... this system is based on these others, trying to mimic them at best... i'm not sure that loading a new page to confirm a sent message is very useful... maybe a vote would give an idea!

Another small question. How do i call the page, where i can select more users to page?

I called the pager from memberinfo until now and from the navbar.

Memberinfo let me send a message to the current user and calling the pager from navbar let me view my pager inbox. But how can i call the page to select users i want to page?

Regards, Wachtmeister

This is maybe not a bug, but it is a small problem, if you use vbAdvanced. The attached screenshots shows my vbadvanced homepage on www.webgurus.de. My forum is on www.webgurus.de/forum/.

I you call the pager from the root (www.webgurus.de) a window with an error opens. If you call the pager from the forum everything works fine.

Maybe you could solve this in you fantastic add-on. Its really fun for my users :) Some asked me how much each instant message costs ;)

By the way this looks like a great addition :)

nexialys
06 Jan 2006, 15:49
Could this cause a significant increase in server load?not really... if you want the system to use less server, you apply a larger delay for updating the AJAX... btw, if you have 10000 users using the system at the same time, you don't have to worry about serverload, you already need a dedicated server for 10000 users... ;)

Double check the template edits, specially the footer edit.


Only problem I'm having is with the


<if condition="$pagerinfo[canreply]">


condition in the pager_newpager

I've double check all my usergroup settings and haven't been able to find why it isn't displaying right. I've removed the if condition (start and end) and it works fine. So, maybe it's a typo in the condition.

One other bug.

It looks like the permissions are not being inherited from secondary usergroups. It's not letting them overwrite.

For example, the primary usergroup (Registered Member) is set needing to post 5 posts per day to reply. The secondary usergroup (Donating Member) is set to be able to use the pager without having to post. Yes, the donating member usergroup is set to override the primary group.

However, my users that are also donating members, are still being told they must make 5 posts before they can use the pager. :(

This sounds interesting, but please bring me up to speed with this. Is the Pager referred to here like the pre mobile phone device you clipped on your belt that only received text messages?

It's like PMs on superman crack. Don't have all the page reloading.

Another way to think about it is like the old IRC rooms and sending someone a private message through it.

Regarding your style, we need to remove the button class or use your own.

in Template pager_newpager

Find
<textarea class="button" rows="3" name="message" style="width: 100%; onkeydown="textCounter(this);" onkeyup="textCounter(this);" style="max-width: 100%;"></textarea>Remove the button class or use something else.

in Template pager_mutlipager

Find
<textarea class="button" rows="7" name="message" cols="37" onKeyDown="textCounter(this);" onKeyUp="textCounter(this);"></textarea>Remove the button class or use something else.

UAE, congrats on getting this one done; I remember playing with the vb3.0x version quite a bit. Which, brings me to a question. I had the old version, and, probably, still do, in my database (after I upgraded my board to 3.52.

Will the install of this version interfere with the database entries from the old version? Or will this install automatically drop the previous tables?

Looking forward to installing this. Hope you are well

some else i noticed...............when you log on a message from IE pos up saying

This page is accessing information that is not under its control. do you want to continue?

if you say yes everything is fine (but it keeps poping up everytime u reload the page or go to another thread) if you say NO
it gives the permission error

Thanks dude :)
Okay, if you still got the old pager table in your database, installing this version should not harm your database, but I suggest that you drop the old pager table from your database, drop the old pager column from the user table, then install this one.
And no, it will not drop the previuse tables automatically, cos table name has changed in this version.

They don't have the "reply" option, but I have the permissions set correctly.. did I forget something?


EDIT:

Nevermind, I see you need to have the option "Can Use Allow Reply Option When Paging Another User" for all the groups you want to reply to.

But I am having issues with duplicates.. I think I've been sent the same "pager" four times now..

Works great - thanks! :D

One thing that might be a nice extra, is for a user to be able to choose whether instead of the message popping up in the middle of the screen, a small tab or button could flash up in the top / bottom corner of the forum (or something like that) and when you click on that the message(s) come up. Just in case users get annoyed at constant popups - rather like a minimising feature i suppose.

Anyway, just a small suggestion, don't know if it's possible or has previously been mentioned. Thanks for this hack!

3. Who's Online members on the forum home: when you click someone a menu appears giving you the option to send them an instant message, add to buddylist, view profile ect.

I couldn't wait and have it installed as a test.

For the postbit it perhaps would be nice if the pager image wouldn't appear if the post was made by the user who is browsing the post. (Like: There's no need to page yourself).

Additionally I think it shouldn't list anything from the pager system if the user doesn't want to receive pagers, or if the user who browses the thread is in a usergroup that has no permission to use the pager.

Hi

I have installed and all is showing as it should be but
When i go to type in a message, the text disapears straight away,
not even time to show 2 letters disappears after the 1st letter..
the letter count does not change either due to nothing typed lol

Also this edit in the navbar template
<if condition="$show['pmstats']"><br /><phrase 1="$vbphrase[unread_x_nav_compiled]" 2="$vbphrase[total_x_nav_compiled]" 3="$session[sessionurl_q]">$vbphrase[private_messages_nav]</phrase></if>

My code is like this
<if condition="$show['pmstats']"><br /><phrase 1="$vbphrase[unread_x_nav_compiled]" 2="$vbphrase[total_x_nav_compiled]" 3="$session[sessionurl_q]">$vbphrase[private_messages_nav]</phrase></if>$subscribed_threads_replied
<br /><if condition="$rcount != ''">$rcount<br /></if>
so i had to put your change like this
<if condition="$show['pmstats']"><br /><phrase 1="$vbphrase[unread_x_nav_compiled]" 2="$vbphrase[total_x_nav_compiled]" 3="$session[sessionurl_q]">$vbphrase[private_messages_nav]</phrase></if>$subscribed_threads_replied
<br /><if condition="$rcount != ''">$rcount<br /></if>
<!-- [START HACK='vB Pager' AUTHOR='UAEWEB.COM' VERSION='3.0.0' CHANGEID= 3 ] -->
<if condition="$show['pager']"><br /><a href="#" onclick="window.open('$vboptions[bburl]/pager.php?action=pager&do=log&folder=inbox','pagerinbox','statusbar=no,menubar=no,toolbar=no,scrollbars=yes,re sizable=yes,width=650,height=500'); return false;">$vbphrase[pager_pager_messages]</a><phrase 1="$bbuserinfo[pagerunread]" 2="$bbuserinfo[pagertotal]">$vbphrase[pager_messages_nav_x_y]</phrase></if>

You welcome :)
1- There is already one, and you can use your own if you like, just replace vbpager.gif with your own.
2- Again, you can user your own icon, it's vbpager_icon.gif.
3- I did not want people editing a lot of their fourm's templates, since vb pager has it's own popup window with all online members.

I couldn't wait and have it installed as a test.
For the postbit it perhaps would be nice if the pager image wouldn't appear if the post was made by the user who is browsing the post. (Like: There's no need to page yourself).

Additionally I think it shouldn't list anything from the pager system if the user doesn't want to receive pagers, or if the user who browses the thread is in a usergroup that has no permission to use the pager.

Hm, I am also able to send msgs to users who are on my pager buddy list, but in a usergroup that has no permission to use the pager.

Hey Floris, thanks for stopping by :)
You know, I used to have this condition in the postbit/postbit_lagacy
<if condition="$vboptions['vbpager_active'] AND $bbuserinfo['userid'] != $post['userid'] AND $bbuserinfo[userid]">
but then I removed $bbuserinfo['userid'] != $post['userid'], I don't know why, but that how it went lol.

Your second thought, mmm, I had the Private Message Logic, like if a user has disabled PM, anyone try to send that user a pm will get an error message, so again, I went with that logic.

Usergroup with no permission to use pager will never be able to send new pager messages nor reply, but will always be able to receive pager messages from others.
You can always restrict individuals from receiving pager messages, by adding their userids in the vB Pager banned users.

Hi
I have installed and all is showing as it should be but
When i go to type in a message, the text disapears straight away,
not even time to show 2 letters disappears after the 1st letter..
the letter count does not change either due to nothing typed lol

You will need to change Maximum Number of charaters per pager message from the vB Pager usergroup permission.

Hello,

i've got a pager message on my vbadvanced index-page and the users avatar was not shown. The images address was www.webgurus.de/customavatars/something.gif (http://www.webgurus.de/customavatars/something.gif) but it should be www.webgurus.de/ (http://www.webgurus.de/)forum/customavatars/something.gif

If you receive pager messages on the vbadvanced page, the users avatar is not shown.

uae, have you had the chance to view on this one?

You welcome
1- There is already one, and you can use your own if you like, just replace vbpager.gif with your own.
2- Again, you can user your own icon, it's vbpager_icon.gif.
3- I did not want people editing a lot of their fourm's templates, since vb pager has it's own popup window with all online members.
but if you want to have it, I can provide you with the template edit for that.

Thanks that would be nice.
I think the problem I am having the default avatar is a broken link issuse because an image placeholder is showing for users who don't have an avatar. Where in the templates can I correct this?

Ok here is what I did:

I took the vbpager_user_buddylist_online.gif from the statusicon folder, copied it, renamed it to vbpager_icon.gif then I uploaded it to the /images/statusicon folder on my server and overwrote the original vbpager_icon.gif.

As for editing the postbit template to make the vbpager_icon.gif icon more visible here is what I did:

in the postbit / postbit_legacy template Find:
<if condition="$show['reputation']"><if condition="$show['reppower']">$vbphrase[reppower]: $post[reppower] </if><div>$post[reputationdisplay]</div></if>
<div>$post[icqicon] $post[aimicon] $post[msnicon] $post[yahooicon]</div>

UAE, another 3 months of work in the way... LOL

i don't think it would be useful... group discussions is the goal of Chats and Shoutbox ...

I beg to differ. It may be the goal of chats to offer group based chat, but with the exception of a couple of hacks (1 beta), there is little VB integretion with IRC. Besides IRC offers more than what most need.

If this supported chatting to groups of people at the same time, it would be much more useful, 1vs1 chat isn't really that much use, you might as well use PMs really...

That said, this is a very good looking hack and shows good promise. Just get cracking on adding group support ;)

Unfortunately the AJAX-Refresh isn't really usable on hightraffic forums. I have about 200 users currently online and a 20 second ajax refresh more then doubled my server load.

the other 2 are messages that were sent out, however i'm unable to delete the ones in an outbox style environment like you can with private messaging.. any ideas?

the plugin really works fine here, but it seems to be an absolute loadkiller on high load forums.

i have about 200 users online over the day and just switched off the ajax update. Unfortunately the load is still very high when some users use the system.

i think i will switch it off again. Probably there's a way to get the load that this creates down a bit.

well that's you. You must have a small $#@ board or a large dedicated package. If you have over 60 cuncurrent members online at once always then this mod and the other AJAX using modification, VBShout, if not practicle. Try logging onto SSH, top command, enable the pager with any AJAX refreshing timeset and or the shoutbox and watch the CPU usage, load, and memory go beyond belief.

Anyway, the mods are neat technological ideas but they are not, as I said, practicle.. and don't mind my spelling... for medium and large communities. End of conversation.

but you should say, that not ajax is responsible for that. The lots of reloads are the reason for the high load. Especially a problem together with keep alive mode in apache, wich is very useful on large boards.

uae tnx for this great addon. Is it possible to add the popup to the vbshout refresh system so the message and the respons will popup triggert by the refresh from the shoutbox. Then you have an almost direct communication system on the frontpage. :)

In template pager_messagelistbit
find
class="page"
change it to
class="button"

Thnx :) That did it for the messagelist... But when I receive a message it has the same problem. Which template do I have to modify?

I'm afraid that I did not get what exactly you were talking about, but I don't use vbshout!
are you talking about integrating vbshout with vb pager?

sorry :ermm:

In template pager_newpager

Find [two places]

Replace with

No not an integration. Members now have to refresh a page to see the pager message but the vbshout has an automatic refresh in it so members can exchange messages without refreshing the forum index. There's a popup for the reciever when a message is send depending on the refreshrate of the shout which is rather high in most cases.

In the old sms and shoutbox system i had code connected to the refreshbutton so when people refreshed the shoutbox the pager/sms appeared. Now if that is possible it looks also possible with vbpager/vbshout. :)

It's already there!
vB Pager has its own AJAX refresh system, you don't need to refresh the page you're viewing to get a pager message!

??? I have to refresh the page to see a message. Have i overlooked something?
Look at this attachment
http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/attachment.php?attachmentid=40492
Change the value for vB Pager AJAX check Period to x seconds.
let's try 5 seconds.

so every 5 seconds, ajax will check if there is a new pager message awaitng, and it will pop up without a manual refresh.

Didnt see this one here yet .

Ive installed and all seems well.. except that i dont have an option to enable/disble the vbpager in the UserCP. I see the icon in the postbit and in the whos online and in the memberinfo.

But as of right now i have no permissions.. there is only banned users and not registered users disabled from using vbpager..


so whats left to check? the modify options edit is correct.. so im kind of lost at this point..

Thanks in advance..

Lenny :)

Edit: errrr... Should include the need to edit the usergroups permissions for the pager in the install file.. I was under the impression everyone had the permissions except the userids listed in the area for banned users.. :) well off to to toy and see if we find any bugs :p

Well Uae, it all seems to work as it is supposed to. Quite impressive. But, we've been finding that the vbpager is crashing people's browsers; only when they're using the latest version of IE. It appears to work flawlessly with Netscape and FF. I'm not quite sure why; I've reinstalled the software, and it all appears to be correct.

I did upgrade my boards from 3.07 to 3.52, and, also, moved everything to a new server. But, all works well. Can't seem to figure out why we're getting these browser crashes. And, they most definitely are triggered by the vbpager popup.

Are you saying that you are not getting pager messages? or you got them but when you go to your pager messages inbox it's not there?
Have you tried your sent items? cos a lot of people never try looking at their sent items and it always says there is number of messages stored!
The total number of pager messages you got to see in the navbar are messages from both, your inbox and your sent items folder, so please do check both.

Thanks for pointing me to the sent items box. That did the trick.

For the next version, it is very hard to see the dropdown arrow next to the word inbox. Actually, it is hard to see the word inbox if you have a dark style. Perhaps you can make it bigger or in a color that stands out more?

I am not getting pages (messages or whatever) at all in the inbox. If I log into a test account on a different browser and send my username a page (or the opposit) the text in the navbar says "Pager Messages: Unread 1, Total 1." but when I click Pager Messages, it says "No Pager Messages to Display!" I can see the pager message(s) in the sent box of the one that sent it, and the numbers seem to always be correct either way, but the messages never show in the inbox. I am running 3.5.3 by the way, it that makes any difference.

Okay, I'm having this strange issue with the AJAX popup. If you take a look at the attachment, for some reason the height of the window is staying at 1px (yet the width appears to be correct). The grey line is my border colour, and the white line is the scrollbar. The width seems to be fine, but not the height.

When I send a message, that line appears in the middle of the screen (as the window should, but obviously larger height-wise). At this point, my Total and Unread counts increase, but I can't view the message in the Inbox (presumably because I need to click 'Close' first in the popup, which I can't do with the height the way it is). It's all working fine, it's just this display issue that's puzzling me. I've tried displaying this in both IE6 and FF v1.0.4 and they both have the issue (on Opera it doesn't even display the line, so I can't tell if it works or not there).

Even when I don't have a new pager message, that funny line is still there, but tucked in the top left corner (which makes sense as you don't adjust the position unless a new message is here?) I'm just not sure if that's what it should be like, and right now I can't do anything with it other than send messages. Any idea?

Right! Look at my example (http://www.picturemeclubbing.com/forum/examples/why.jpg). It shows the messages should be there, but when I go into my inbox they aren't. I look into my sent messages and those show up. I don't get why I can't recieve any. I even tried to download option just to test it and I got this: (You have no pager messages to download.)

I really need this. I don't know what to do. Anyone have an idea?

I'm not sure if it is AJAX or not, but when I change the setting from 0 to any number, IE starts crashing on me. Otherwise, the popup works great and I can move it around in the browser. Only downside is I have to refresh page to get updated pages. Boy, AJAX would be great! I hope you can figure it out.

Hmmmm.... Apparently there are major problems in IE with AJAX memory leaks...

http://ajax-prototype.blogspot.com/2005/12/ie-memory-leak.html

Several articles have been published about the IE memory leak. One has come to the conclusion that the leak appear when two objects from different worlds (DOM vs Javascript) refer to each other. Here is an example : ......


If you have this code in your page, you will see the corresponding iexplore.exe instance in your task manager increasing memory each time you reload . Here is the leak !

Thank you,
1) It's either you close the pager message or reply to it, that is a respond!
2) What did you mean by the chat box? is it the whole pager online/buddylist page closing after hitting the send button? or just the send new pager form which should close after sending the message.

Hi Uae,
My "beta testers" have been playing with vbpager to try to fix the issues. We love the hack, and are just trying to help here, as always. Thought you might find this interesting:
as your senior beta tester I have to let you know, that this update from Microsoft doesn’t work. I downloaded and installed it today, but yet I continue to get kicked out when a pager message shows up. BUT

(I like this part with the but…lol) This being kicked out only happens when I’m on the start page of the forum, or when I try to enter my user CP. When I entered the site and immediately went to a secondary page like NEW POSTS e.g., the pager message opens and I don’t get this error message or the complete shutting down of the IE. It sounds strange, but this problem only persists at the start page of the forum and the USER CP page. Oh and the “remember me” box was clicked on.


Well, the "start" page that she refers to is on russbo.com, and the vb forum is on russbo.org; different servers. So, I can understand why there are issues. But, the USER CP part is interesting. Don't fully understand that yet.

I've reduced AJAX to the middle level, and people still get the IE crashses. I have now gotten rid of AJAX to see if anything improves.

Hope all is well. Keep up the good work man. Great hack.
