sweet, so with own shop do you mean we will be able to make our own stores.. like sell car parts for say, and then our users buy them with their cash?

If so sweeeet

Blaine0002
20 Jun 2006, 01:50
well no no. this is a system where you specify an ammount of points a user gets each time they post. then a coder can create a shop where users can spend those points on diffrent things on their website.

ahhh,


Im not coding efficent enough to create a shop :) It seems useful though ;)

Where do I look when I want to edit a template? I'm having the same problem with vbbux. When I saw this, I was exited to upload it, which I did but can't seem to figure out how to perform edits.

can this be used with VBookie???

Sweet .-)

Can this have a feature that points are given only after certain number of "unique" views?

Im curious to know this too

It would be very easy to modify the code to update vbookie money rather than its own.

Edit the XML and replace "money" in the SQL queries to be "vbookie_cash"

There are also a few statements the need the same changes in the icashadmin.php file

Probably remove the install/uninstall sections although it won't hurt and no need to do the postbit template edits (assuming vBookie is already installed)



Nice simple neat hack here Blaine!

I've implemented this with the above changes to the install XML and PHP file - works a treat ;)

Looks promising! I've been looking for a simple cash mod just like this.

three questions:
1. Can I change the currency name to one of my choosing?
2. Has this been hacker-tested? other (more complicated) forum cash systems had exploitable bugs that allowed users to game the system.
3. Will this be ported to vb3.6?

Thanks! :)

Blaine0002
20 Jun 2006, 16:27
ok,
there are no templates to edit for this, i dont know what you would want to change?
you can change the name of the points by simply editing the 'money' phrase
i have no idea what ibookie is, but try darthos idea
This should be hacker proof, any breaches i think would be vbulletins fault since this is all backend.
and it should workd with 3.6 but i havent looked into all the changes.

>point giving via admincp.

Can admin give negative points? This effectively takes points away instead of adding.

Blaine0002
21 Jun 2006, 03:03
Yep, where you enter in the ammount of points to give to a user simply type a negative number.

armstrong
22 Jun 2006, 04:51
>point giving via admincp.

urm ... where do I go to do this? I just installed icash, but can't seem to find this particular feature.

I have access to cpanel/phpmyadmin. Can i make the changes directly, or would that possibly break something?

EDIT: nevermind. i had to refresh admincp to see the new icash options. thanks for the hack! *clicks install*

Hello Blaine, I am not familiar with VB's plugin/hooks/internal workings/etc, but can code basic php/mysql. Could you post a short sample php code to do something elementary, like say transfer money from userA to userB? From this point, I should be able to work it out. I would really appreciate it if you can do this!

Blaine0002
23 Jun 2006, 15:58
really not much has anything to do with it, its mostly just backend queries and other stuff. for example a donation template would look somthing like

<form action="donate.php?$session[sessionurl]do=DoDonateMoney" method='post'>
<table class="tborder" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="1" border="0" width="100%" align="center">
<tr>
<td class='tcat' align='center' colspan='6' width='1%'><a style="float:right" href="#top" onclick="return toggle_collapse('donate_money')"><img id="collapseimg_donate_money" src="$stylevar[imgdir_button]/collapse_tcat.gif" alt="" border="0" /></a>Donate Money!</td></tr>
<tbody id="collapseobj_donate_money" style="{$vbcollapse['collapseobj_donate_money']}">
<tr>
<td class='thead' align='center' width='50%'><b>Amount</b></td>
<td class='thead' align='center' width='50%'><b>To [Enter Username]</b></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td class='alt1' align='center' width='50%'><input type='text' class='bginput' name='amount'></td>
<td class='alt1' align='center' width='50%'><input type='text' class='bginput' name='to' value='{$to}'></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td class='tfoot' colspan='2' align='center'><input type='submit' value='Donate Money!' class='bginput'></td>
</tr>
</table>
</form>


and then the backend php file would look somthing like this

<?php
<?php
error_reporting(E_ALL & ~E_NOTICE);
define('NO_REGISTER_GLOBALS', 1);
define('THIS_SCRIPT', 'donate');
//call the template
$actiontemplates = array('Donate' => array('itemshop_donate_money', ), );
// main DONATE
if ($_GET['do'] == "Donate") {
$navbits = array("itemshop.php?$session[sessionurl]&do=" . $Action => "Donate");
$navbits[""] = "Send Money To Members";
$to = $_GET['to'];
eval('$template .= "' . fetch_template('itemshop_donate_money') . '";');
}

// DONATE function [Money]
if ($_GET['do'] == "DoDonateMoney") {
$navbits = array("itemshop.php?$session[sessionurl]&do=" . $Action => "Donate");
$navbits[""] = "Sending Money";

$amount = $_POST['amount'];
$amount = str_replace(",", "", $amount);
$doname = $_POST['to'];
$doname = addslashes(htmlspecialchars_uni($doname));

if (!$user = $db->query_first("select * from " . TABLE_PREFIX . "user where username='{$doname}'")) {
// user dosent exist
eval(standard_error(fetch_error('error_shop_sendmtonoexist')));
}

if ($user_shop['userid'] == $vbulletin->userinfo['userid']) {
//user is self
eval(standard_error(fetch_error('error_shop_sendmtonoself')));
}

if ($amount < 0 || $amount == 0) {
//cant send 0
eval(standard_error(fetch_error('error_shop_sendmsomthing')));
}

if ($vbulletin->userinfo[$vbulletin->options['itemshop_pointfield']] - $amount < 0) {
//you dont have enough
eval(standard_error(fetch_error('error_shop_donthave')));
}

//take money
$db->query("update " . TABLE_PREFIX . "user set {$vbulletin->options['itemshop_pointfield']}={$vbulletin->options['itemshop_pointfield']}+'{$amount}' where userid='{$user_shop['userid']}'");
//give money
$db->query("update " . TABLE_PREFIX . "user set {$vbulletin->options['itemshop_pointfield']}={$vbulletin->options['itemshop_pointfield']}-'{$amount}' where userid='{$vbulletin->userinfo['userid']}'");

$vbulletin->url = "donate.php?$session[sessionurl]do=Donate" . $vbulletin->session->vars['sessionurl'] ."";
//donated successfully!
eval(print_standard_redirect('shop_r_donatesuccess', true, true));
}
?>


if you even have the slightest knowledge of php i think you can figure it out from there. If you need help there are some great resources in the modifaction tutorials forum! :)

Thank you, Blaine. This is great stuff. :tu: I like how I can use this with my own code, which means I can keep my forum's cash system lean and focused only on the stuff I really need.

functions:
cost per game
wins per game if in highscore list.

would this be possible?

Blaine0002
28 Jun 2006, 18:05
hmm how about somthing like you specify a number, and they get #1 on the highscores, they get that number X 10, number 9 would be X 5. ect. or what were you thinking?

stonner
28 Jun 2006, 23:12
yes something like this.

and a fix price per game.

would this be possible?

29 Jun 2006, 01:01
The arcades' tournament feature would be nice. Members pay an amount to join, and the tournament champion gets the pot, less a predefined house "tax".

03 Jul 2006, 01:39
Blaine, I really like this simple cash system. I've been researching the various ones out there and found that ucash is no longer supported, and vbux is way too feature-rich for what I want. So this is a nice simple system to start.

I think you asked for suggestions, did you not? Well, here goes...:p...I want to use the cash system to encourage my members to participate on the forum and you have started off with some good things, like rewarding for posts, or starting threads. But how about giving points for things like....

- creating a quiz (Inferno Quiz, which I have not yet installed)
- taking a quiz
- using the chatroom (basically, just simply clicking on the chat link would do it)
- reading a thread (yes even lurkers need some reward! LOL!)
- thanking a post (I have the Thank You hack installed, so if someone clicked the thank you link it would be nice if they got points for it)

Some other things to mention...

I notice that I have to make a choice in the points system. One, I can give points for the number of characters a member enters in a post OR I can give points for new threads and replies. Is there some way to use BOTH? That is, I want to give members points for making a reply, but I'd like to give additional points for the LENGTH of that reply (as it stands now, a poster that posts 2 words gets the same amount of points as someone who posts several paragraphs). Also, the points are out of skew for the number of characters...1 point for each character in a post? That's too much. Could that be altered to something like 1 point for every 20 words?

Finally, in the admin CP when I manually give out points...would be nice if there was a text field "why" I was giving points and then if a PM could automatically be sent to the member that I had given points to (ie. "Hello LongtimeMember, I have given you 25 points for your helpful reply to Newbie on how to add an avatar").

Another thing...will you be creating an iShop to use with your iCash? Not essential as I think I will just create a thread that lists all the items people can buy with their points and then sell them manually, but it would be cool if it was automated and customizable (ie. only the things I want for sale in there).

Thanks again for your hack, and I hope my suggestions are of some use. :)

Emmy2
03 Jul 2006, 01:46
ps. me again! one more thing....would it be possible to dispense points from the postbit, instead of having to go to the Admin CP?

Emmy2
03 Jul 2006, 01:51
more...

- points for creating a poll
- points for voting in a poll

Are there plans for an upgrade soon? If so when and what would be involved?

I do not want to install this if there is nothing else coming down the road...

Blaine0002
03 Jul 2006, 19:56
Of course there are upgrades coming, i could probably upload a base ibproarcade integration. And yes I am planning on integrating a shop with this. My current shop isnt compatable with it because i havent updated it in awhile. Emmy, thanks for the lengthy post, i'll look into those :)

armstrong
04 Jul 2006, 03:01
Its great that upgrades are forthcoming. However, the thing with icash is its simplicity. If you keep adding new features, it might soon become as large as vbbux, and increasingly harder to update (for you the developer) with each new vb upgrade. My first vb cash/shop mod was ucash, and like many others I kept postponing my vb upgrades because of incompatibilities with ucash. That experience is what made me shy away from vbbux and opt for icash this time around. Anyway, this is just something to consider. :)

I haven't gotten around to creating my own donation feature based on icash, as I'm still boning up on how to program for vb. In keeping with the idea of simplicity, I envision a single-page "icash transactions" area, where members can donate funds, purchase virtual items, and order items for physical delivery.

only admin can deduct points, so you have the power to stop this from happening.

for my board, i allowed several people to borrow points and thus go into minus, which serves as an ongoing reminder that they "owe" the board, and have to make up for it by posting.

06 Jul 2006, 04:16
I love the idea Blaine, especially love the idea of making it simple.

You definately hit the nail on the head when you say that this is a system without all the bells and whistles of those "other" hacks. And you're right, people DO want a point system that just does that... counts points lol.

I would love to see someone use this great system to create some sort of File Download Store. I know many vb.org users have requested this in the other point hack threads. Possibly integrate it with one of the existing file managing hacks and make it so that users can collect points and then buy downloadable files with those points. (ex: ebooks).

If you can do this, I'd definately like to hear from you! PM me!

ay ideas?

The following error occurred when attempting to evaluate this template:

Parse error: parse error, unexpected T_ENCAPSED_AND_WHITESPACE, expecting T_STRING or T_VARIABLE or T_NUM_STRING in /home/catfish4/public_html/forums/includes/adminfunctions_template.php(3537) : eval()'d code on line 84

This is likely caused by a malformed conditional statement. It is highly recommended that you fix this error before continuing, but you may continue as-is if you wish.

My admincp has a string of numbers after it, this is probably it? Think?

toolblast
06 Jul 2006, 04:57
When installing the hack your admincp needs to be at the location

www.yoursite.com/admincp

Or if your forum is in a subfolder: www.yoursite.com/forum/admincp

Your admincp folder can't be named /admincp123456 while installing because you'll get that error.

MillerLight
06 Jul 2006, 05:01
Can you change the name of the folder, and not break the forum. Once logged in, change the folder name to admincp, then rebame it bacdk to what it was?

Of course, this would be thru FTP

toolblast
06 Jul 2006, 06:10
Change it back to /admincp

Install the hack

Then change it to whatever new name you want after you've installed.

armstrong
06 Jul 2006, 08:16

Will upgrade and test today.

What if I also wanted to install vbookie? If I change the money row (in admincp/icash) to vbookie_cash, what will happen to the data already stored under the money row? Would it be better to somehow tell vbookie to use 'money' in place of 'vbookie_cash'?

armstrong
06 Jul 2006, 12:33
Ok, I tried it, with mixed results. I don't know if its because of my internet connection (somewhat sporadic today), but my funds were not decremented by the specified "Costs per Play", even during the one time the jackpot was incremented as expected (other times I played the jackpot didn't move at all).

I'm using all integer numbers in my icash, while ibproarcade uses fractional values. Could this have something to do with it?

Blaine0002
06 Jul 2006, 13:12
thanks for the reply tool blast

I think you will probably need your admincp to remain as admincp since i think the admin file calls files in the admincp directory. maybe open and edit the file and change all instances to what you want them to be??

Armstrong i will route this thru mrzeropage and see what he says :)

and miller, i have never seen any errors like that, try what i said above.

Emmy2
06 Jul 2006, 14:05
Blaine, if I'm not running IbProarcade will it still work if I do the upgrade for this? Are there any other changes besides integrating IbProarcade?

Emmy2
06 Jul 2006, 14:20
Blaine, me again, with another idea, hope you don't mind. The appeal of your points system is its simplicity...that is, we aren't uploading script for a whole bunch of features we don't use or want. Would it be a good idea then to keep the main script as clean as possible (that is, features that all forums use, like replying to posts, reading threads, voting in polls etc.) and create separate add-on scripts for features like ibProarcarde? That way people installing this can choose from the list of add-ons what they want for their forum and the basic script is kept simple and clean and relevant to everyone.

What think? Because, for example, like I mentioned earlier I would like an add-on for points for "thanking" posts...but not everyone has the Thank You hack on their forum, so it might be best to keep it all separate from the main script.

Don't know if any of that made sense, hope so.

Emmy2
06 Jul 2006, 14:36
tiptoeing in.....me again! :D

Here's another idea: Is there some way to give points for clicking on different things in the forum that the admin can set up themselves? (so you don't have to create separate scripts?)

In other words, a place in the ICash admin panel where I could simply enter a url and the number of points for clicking on it?

Example, points for clicking on the url to my chatroom (so members would get points for using chat) would look something like this in the admin panel:

Earn Points for Visiting Url: http://mysite.com/forums/chat/flashchat.php
Points Earned Per Click: 10

This could also apply to the Thank You hack, could it not? The full url to that is something like:

http://mysite.com/forums/showthread.php?do=post_thanks&p=453480

but could it be set up so it ignores the post number and rewards for...

http://mysite.com/forums/showthread.php?do=post_thanks

Long story short, if there is some way to include urls in the admin panel that the ADMIN could set up themselves for point-giving. A sort of generic script that could be used in various situations so the admin could customize what they want to give points for.

Just an idea from my overactive imagination. :D

armstrong
06 Jul 2006, 15:15
Same here - I like icash for its simplicity. In that case, what basic functions do forums universally need? IMHO, the following:
1. points per thread
2. points per post
3. points per referral
4. points transfers (also called a donation feature, used for members to pay each other instead of routing everything to the forum admin)
5. magic transfers (for admin and mods to adjust users' points without affecting his own balance)
6. transfers log (who gave what to whom, when and how much; this is so admins have something to work with in case of disputes)

icash already has 1,2&3 above; I hope blaine can include 4,5,&6. Everything else (including the ipb integration that I can use) is just fluff, and I would rather not have them than see icash get bloated. I rather like Emmy's suggestion of having addons that we can pick and choose from.

The basic script does more than 1,2,3 in your list. Here is the current list as it appears in Admin CP:

1. Points per character posted...amount of points a user gets for each character posted in their post (would like to see this integrated with the replies and new threads points, not separated in that you choose one or the other. In other words, a base amount for adding a post, then additional points based on the LENGTH of that post).

2. Points per new thread started

3. Points per reply

4. Points on registration

5. Points per referral

6. Donate to members (Admins giving members points)

--------------------

Other things I'd like to see in the BASIC (for everyone) script are:

7. Points for reading threads

8. Points for creating a poll

9. Points for voting in a poll

10. Points for each week someone is a member of your forum (as long as they have logged in that week). This rewards "loyalty" and re-visits.

--------------------

Then I would like a feature where Admins could customize the points by adding urls that when members click they get points for. Examples:

a. Visiting the Chatroom url

b. Clicking the "thank you for this post" link

This way it's unique to each forum and you aren't creating separate scripts for those items if you don't run them on your forum.

---------------------

Finally, I would like to see Add-ons for more complex features not coverable by the simple "points for clicking url" feature above, and that not all forums use (these would require separate installations). Examples:

i. Add-on for IbProarcade

ii. Add-on for Inferno Quiz (points for creating quiz, taking quiz)


That would be my fantasy dream setup. :p

Hey thats a GREAT idea. I really like the whole "custom point urls" idea where admins can add something onto the beginning of their URLS so that when the user clicks the link, it gives them points, and then redirects them to the proper url... that would be a pretty useful thing I think.

armstrong
07 Jul 2006, 00:14
Wouldn't it be easy to abuse points for reading threads, visiting the Chatroom url, and clicking on links? The old ucash had this feature, which I turned off right quick, because people kept amassing large number of points simply by placing point-earning URLs on autofurf programs. To keep people from doing this, you would have to track who has already visited which URL, which would quickly become unrealistic except in really low-activity boards.

Wow, active thread today! (zoos are a terrble place to be, all the little kids and how they treat the animals :( ) but anyways, everything seems to be working fine on both my 3.6.0 and 3.5.4 forums, no problems at all. I will probably do like you said, make a complete basic system which will allow users to make their own addons and me myself make addons. It sounds like a good plan to me :) its personally why i dont use vbbux and stuff, just so much stuff i dont need.

So as for updates i will try to get them out as soon as i can while maintaining my jobs of WoW and my website, also being a real person (im learning!) so i can and wont promise a timeframe in which updates will be released, all i can say is. THEY WILL :)

I'm thinking of installing vbookie. How would that work, since I already have icash installed?

Blaine0002
08 Jul 2006, 04:54
as of right now i still need to make a table point converter.

For example, if you have points in your 'money' table (default for icash) and you want to use vbookie, you change where the points go to, but you dont retain your current points. What i need to do is make somthing so that it will add what you have, to what you are converting to.

See what im saying?

armstrong
08 Jul 2006, 05:25
what if I do this:
1. pause the forum
2. go to cpanel->phpmyadmin and rename the money field to 'vbookie_cash'
3. change icash settings (admincp->icash->'money row') to 'vbookie_cash'
4. install vbookie
5. activate forum

Unless I'm missing something, this should work, right?

Blaine, you've created an awesome monster here. I remember when you first posted this thread and I was quite excited that there was an easier point system out there. Now, I have to admit that I currently use vbux on my forum but like many other users on here have mentioned before, it is way too "feature rich." One of the few features that I do like is its banking system which would be a great little add-on in ICash those who "choose" to intergrate it to their site. What looks extremely promising to me is the possibility for custom shops. That is what's really going to make this hack reach the top of its game. The only problem I have is if I uninstall vbux and install ICash, do I have to revert the templates? That would really suck if I did, because they are heavily modded with other hacks. I'm going to continue to support this hack and I commend you for your efforts.

Blaine0002
08 Jul 2006, 14:41
Yes armstrong that should work :) thanks for the info!
but when you remove icash make sure to rename it back or you will get an error.

@chkdgate
what do you mean revert them? there is only 1 template edit for icash right now.

Im not sure how many template edits vbbux has but you might want to undo them :)
and yes i will be making a bank system.

chkdgate
08 Jul 2006, 18:18
and yes i will be making a bank system.
Awesome!

What I mean by "reverting" is yes, undoing them. I have other mods in those templates which took some time to do so I'm just about ready to install ICash but now I also have to reinstall my other mods as well.

Tie this into the contest script, that would be great. Members would be charged X Money to enter a contest. In order to get Money, you have to participate.

Yes armstrong that should work :) thanks for the info!

What do you mean "remove icash"? I don't intend to remove it (its great!), merely add vbookie, which I'm not even sure of yet.

Blaine, it might be time to start thinking about how to number your updates. We've been on v1.0.0 since day 1, even with all the new features you installed. Just a suggestion; it might be for the best in the long run.

armstrong
09 Jul 2006, 11:07
I installed the updated version, and the "Donation and point giving via donation page and postbit!" seems to work as expected. However, we need some sort of mechanism to notify the parties (probably via PM) of the transaction. As well an audit trail so that admin and mods have something to rely on in case of dispute.

Thanks Blaine for all your hard work! This hack is indeed shaping up to be one of my favorites.

Blaine0002
09 Jul 2006, 15:24
thanks! i havent made any actual "updates" yet because it starts to screw with the code, and IMO its just too much work to change a few simple numbers :)

PMing a user would be an easy thing to add, will do.

I have changed the money to vbookie_cash as said but i dont see anything changed.

Nice hack, but um... how do I edit a user's points in admincp?

Blaine0002
10 Jul 2006, 02:25
to give them points you simply give them points, to take them away give them negative points..

The vbookie will be using the icash system to give the user points and stuff. i dont know how to really explain it :P

chikkoo
10 Jul 2006, 10:23
Does it gives Points to already created Topics or Posts??
If it does so, I will install it.
Most of them give the points to the threads/posts after the hack.

10 Jul 2006, 17:16
it does not give points to threads and posts made before the hack was installed, sorry :(

Can i make a suggestion can you make a addon that will calculate all the money that members have earned in who's on line- Statistics.

armstrong
11 Jul 2006, 07:57
What are the range of values that each person can have ?

If we use "Points per character", can it handle fractional values (e.g., 0.001 per character)?

Are quoted text and urls given credit?

Can we use "Points per character" and "Points per thread" simultaneously?

Blaine0002
11 Jul 2006, 14:31
Mr.D I will probably make that an addon in the future.

Armstrong, Im pretty sure it will take 0.001 , but the person would need to type 1000 characters to get one point since it dosent take decimals in storage.

toolblast
11 Jul 2006, 19:07
Looking great. I like to see everyone's ideas for this hack.

It definately needs to stay simple and clean, but it would be nice to also include in the installation zip some 'addons' that can be run and installed as addons to the basic icash script and give it even further functionality above the base functions.

38 downloads, and only 18 installs? I'm suprised at the low number of downloads, but surely there have been more installs than that?

A request which I think the above may be asking for: Giving reputation earns you iCash.
Receiving positive reputation gives you iCash, but receiving negative reputation subtracts iCash?

Good work

Snake
14 Jul 2006, 13:08

dartho
15 Jul 2006, 00:27
another suggestion - perhaps posts/threads in some forums give you more points than in others?

chkdgate
15 Jul 2006, 08:11
Blaine, I definitley think that the next basic mod to this should be the ability for the author of a thread to get points per reply. Therefore an author could just sit back and collect royalties on a really hot thread. I know it has been mentioned before but since you already have points per thread/reply, I figure, why not? It should be a default feature to ICash and it still keeps it clean and simple.

armstrong
15 Jul 2006, 10:15
I have email confirmation enabled in my forum. At what point does icash credit the referral points? Upon registration, or upon email confirmation? It would be nice if this is credited only after a minimum number of posts, to help keep referral credits legit.

chkdgate

VERY nice plugin!

I installed vBux and vBPlaza yesterday, and today, I was already sick of all of the pointless features and store items, and the many messed up templates.

So, I tried out iCash, and IMO it's a lot better- it doesn't keep my users from posting, but it lets them enjoy a simple, subtle points system!

Great work- I'm looking forward to more ways of acquiring points in the future.

Hi blaine. I modified your xml to log all points earned. For points earned for posting a response, I added this part:

$nplogentry = date('Ymd') . ' ' . strftime('%T') . ' response ' . $vbulletin->options['ppr'] . ' ' . $vbulletin->options['icashf'] . ' ' . $vbulletin->userinfo['username'];
$npearnlog = fopen('../../noypisoearnlog.txt','a') or die("can't open cashlog: $php_errormsg");
fwrite($npearnlog, $nplogentry . "\r\n");
fflush($npearnlog);
fclose($npearnlog) or die ($php_errormsg);

Now, I would also like to log the actual post number. What would the variable look like for this?

Great! *clicks install*

Is there a way I could use this with the ecDownloads addon (I'm running 3.5.4)? Like, the user has to have a certain number of points to download a file?

Oh! And what about something like a user earns points each day (or each week, or each month) and each day (week, or month) they expire. For example they have to use them within the set amount of time because the points reset themselves. Oh man, that would be useful for downloads and it would increase forum participation because in order to get points for downloads, users have to participate in forum conversations.

But i guess that's wishful thinking. :)

I have added some code to the donate.php to do some admin - ie reset the cash to nil.

However, how do you create a new redirect:
eval(print_standard_redirect('icash_r_donatereset', true, true));

I have created a phrase named icash_r_donatereset, but when it does the reset and redirect, it comes up as an error saying that it cant find the phrase. What am I doing wrong??? Thanks.

vb automatically detects duplicate posts, and refuses to post such. However, icash seems to not know this, and in fact credits the erring member with twice the amount he's entitled to had the post been accepted. What can be done to remove this bug?

Just installed this after some very bad experiences with that vbPlaza mess.

It seems to be running nicely, it reminds me a cash mod I had installed on an old phpBB forum and that leads me to my question.

Is it possible to have the money name as an image rather than what the admin has decided to name the cash?

On my old phpBB forum I used to have a gif image of a pile of coins and then the total next to it. Small touch but effective.

After that I added:
$vboptions[icashn]: $member[money]

Still the amount of money is not showing up, what am I doing wrong?

Coach_Guru, I agree with you.

1) This feature will be very useful to me too. Currently I installed it, and I want to exclude some forums from giving points and I don't know how to do it?

2) An Admin Log on clicking each points would be nice to see how & from whom the member got the points.

3) After giving points, it needs to return to the post rather than getting the donation page again.

I think you have changed the name of "money row" (in admincp icash settings) to "points".

Change it back to "money" and use the "name of points" and put in there "points" if you want to use that name.
If you change the name of the "money row" you will get this database error, I had the same.

I wanted to show the icash information in MEMBERINFO template.

I try to cut & paste the same information from Postbit, it's not showing the icash amount.

Anyone knows how to do it?

If you want to show decimal places as in real currency, you need to make one alteration. Remember to do a backup of your table before doing this. I will not be held responsible for any problems. This works on my forums just fine.

Go in to phpmyadmin or however you alter your database and run this query
alter table " . TABLE_PREFIX . "user modify money decimal(15,2);

If you are running iBank, you will need to run this query as well
alter table " . TABLE_PREFIX . "user modify bankmoney decimal(15,2);

If you haven't installed this mod yet, this change to the installer should work

Find

<installcode><![CDATA[
$db->query_write("ALTER TABLE " . TABLE_PREFIX . "user ADD COLUMN money int(15) DEFAULT '0' NOT NULL");
]]></installcode>

Replace with

<installcode><![CDATA[
$db->query_write("ALTER TABLE " . TABLE_PREFIX . "user ADD COLUMN money decimal(15,2) DEFAULT '0' NOT NULL");
]]></installcode>

:D

(that means auction hack soon!)Auction Hack? I've been toying with attempting to make a single bid auction hack, the format is: as a seller, you put in a start price and a reserve price, every hour (or x hours), the start price drops by y dollars. First bid wins the item. If no bids when it hits the reserve, the auction ends with no sale. No snipes, no tricks, no fake bids to up the price.

I see what you mean with this, but i believe if there are not many users on the website, the seller can get screwed over on this. If we can get in contact maybe we could join forces on this.

The second option shouldn't be too hard to do with Logicians Web Templates (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=103076)

I've attached a template for use with Logicians Web Templates (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=103076) which should work with iCash default installation, just import it in to webtemplates

This should show the 10 richest and 10 poorest members of you site and should be very easy to change to suit you own requirements

Kat-Sybermoms
07 Dec 2006, 22:40
My members like to be able to steal points from each other.

I figured if they can put in a negative number, they can effectively steal points. But the hack doesn't allow a negative number to be "donated."

Is this an easy fix in the code to allow a negative donation by members and not just admin?

dartho
08 Dec 2006, 01:08
I think it should be very easy to remove the less than 0 checking and thus allow negative donations. Try editing the donate.php file and search for this:
if ($amount < 0 || $amount == 0) {
eval(standard_error(fetch_error('error_icash_sendmsomthing')));
}


and place a double slash ( // )at the start of each of those lines or make a backup of the file first, and then delete those lines.

Just tested it - works fine.

Kat-Sybermoms

OK, with people being able to steal from each other, I want to prevent the balance from going into the negative. How do I do that? I read the thread, and noticed it was asked, but I want to allow my members to negatively donate, but don't want their balance to go below zero. So if one member has 400 points, I don't want someone to be able to "steal" 500 from them and put that person at -100 points.

where this was

eval(standard_error(fetch_error('error_icash_sendmsomthing')));
}


Make a query that calls the member who you are stealing/donating from
lets call it $theiramount
replace it with somthing like

if ($theirammount - $amount = 0 || $theiramount - $amount < 0) {
eval(standard_error(fetch_error('error_icash_errorhere')));
}

Hello Blaine, nice to have you back. :)

I got logging to work with donations, but couldn't figure out how to do this for posts and referrals. I wanted to have one-line log entries that stored the following:
- for posts: timestamp, username, post number (I couldn't figure out how to reference this variable in my mod of your code), points given
- for referrals: timestamp, username, referral username, points given

I need this to be able to detect points fraud, since point on my forum can be redeemed for cash and stuff. Also, did you get to look into the double-credit bug? http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showpost.php?p=1056173&postcount=131

Thanks for your help.

Hi Armstrong - I have attached an edited version of Blains XML using the code from your original logging post - see attached (search for $logentry = date('Ymd') in the XML to see the logging lines - you can edit the text to suit your own logs.

Just import this new XML and overwrite teh existing - make sure you have a backup etc and know what your current settings etc are!

This should add to the log file for all iCash earnings

Thanks dartho, this will indeed help. But looking over your code, it still doesn't log "post number" or "referral username". I'm not familiar enough with vb to know how to get this data, so I'm kinda stuck at this point.

12 Dec 2006, 12:33
@armstrong - The referal one is easy, search for
$logentry = date('Ymd') . ' ' . strftime('%T') . ' ' . $vbulletin->options['ppreferp'] . ' Referal Points Given To User ' . $vbulletin->GPC['referrername']; and change to

$logentry = date('Ymd') . ' ' . strftime('%T') . ' ' . $vbulletin->options['ppreferp'] . ' Referal Points Given To User ' . $vbulletin->GPC['referrername'] . ' for refering ' . $vbulletin->userinfo['userid'];

In postbit template
Find:

<div>$post[icqicon] $post[aimicon] $post[msnicon] $post[yahooicon] $post[skypeicon]</div>



Add after:
----------
$vboptions[icashn]: $member[money]

<a href="cashdonate.php?$session[sessionurl]to=$member[username]">Donate</a>

Note: I just renamed donate.php to cashdonate.php just for my mod only!

I have just taken the product file out and added it back in again to restart all the settings and tested it and all was working fine as soon as I change it to vbookie_cash that is when the problem seems to occur with the amount not adding on when you create a thread or post, so does seem to be a problem with vbookie and not this hack.

Would I need to change anything in the template edit at all for it to work or should it just work from you changing it to vbookie_cash and keeping the template edit the same.

I did get this working previous but not sure if I had to change anything in the template edit to do it

Thanks in advance.

I went in icash and donated 100,000 and the stock trader hack sees the 100,000 that has been donated. It is when it tries to deduct it from the 100,000 that it has that error...

Stock trader hack wants to know the "Money Row" of what I am using for my cash - it sees it but cannot subtract from it is my guess.. I hope this is making sense to you.... Maybe this can't be used in this way?

I remove vbplaza tonight and installed this hack for my money system, and I have vbookie installed.

I changed the money row to vbookie_cash.

My Problem - I am unable to donate money to members with the money row set to vbookie_cash. I tried several times, and would get the response that the donation had been completed, but the amount didn't change for the members. I changed vbookie_cash back to "money" and the donation works.


Edit - Nevermind, I realized that every donation I was making was going to vbookie's vCash. Took the Icash template edit out, and put the vBookie template edit back in, all seems to be working well.

Great hack!

I just edited the vBookie files to add the option for Icash in the admincp also intergrated the Ibank feature by adding the totals of money on hand and money in the bank so it displays the richest users correctly in vbookie. Now all thats required is to select Icash in the admin cp instead of having to change the option in Icash to vbookie_cash. I have not fully tested everything yet, but it looks fine so far. When Im done testing if anyone is interested I can post up the files.

it is easily do-able with a simple hook i could whip up for you once i get home.

As for logging things, i dont really have any reason to add any more to this modification, but if you do figure it out, feel free to post it here.

Yes but i can not use the hack without logging because i and my users do not have any idea about the donations they did.
There is no other hack (except Vbux) which is much complex for mu needs.
So basicaly i am stuck without any points hack.

Can you please try to add the logging feature?
It will be very much appriciated.

Thanks...

I just edited the vBookie files to add the option for Icash in the admincp also intergrated the Ibank feature by adding the totals of money on hand and money in the bank so it displays the richest users correctly in vbookie. Now all thats required is to select Icash in the admin cp instead of having to change the option in Icash to vbookie_cash. I have not fully tested everything yet, but it looks fine so far. When Im done testing if anyone is interested I can post up the files.
Hello sinisterpain. I'd like to see what you did, if possible. I might install vbookie on my icash-enabled forum, and had the idea that it wouldn't require editing of vbookie code.
