View Full Version : Miscellaneous Hacks - Support Forums

Description
This little number will take any specified forums (subforums optional) and modify them to seperate "open issues" from "closed issues". It's great for tracking which support issues are actually resolved.

The key here is letting users close their own threads. Under forum permissions, make sure you let users do this or it loses most of its usefulness.

I suggest having a sticky thread letting users know they CAN close their own threads. However, this is mostly covered by a SHOWTHREAD edit which will tell one of three messages to the viewer:

Staff - "This issue has been resolved! The thread starter may re-open it if he wishes."

Thread Starter - "This issue has been resolved! You may re-open it if you are still having problems."

Other Users - "This issue has been resolved! If you have a similar issue, please create a new thread." (link)

Planned Updates
-Button to open/close thread
-$colspan option for modified threadbits
-Phrased
-Forum Chooser instead of using ForumIDs

I'm about to add "Open/Close" buttons on the post bit, I'll send you the edits needed if you don't beat me to it.

Thanks for the hack.

this is pretty cool.. what would be even more cool is if like [resolved] could be put in the subject line or in a column in the showthread display.

Will This Work On 3.5.4? If Not, Is There One I Can Use, Or One You Can Edit For Me? It Would Be Greatly Appreciated...

Do you go in every modification thread and say "Thanks"? I think it's getting old.

Remove the 'executionorder="x"' stuff from the XML and it should be OK.

I saw once a hack like this but there you didn't had to give members the permission the open/close threads.
When someone replied to a problem the thread starter could select the person who solved the problem (this list was made based on who replied on the thread)
is there a way to modify it like this?

One quick question, is there a way to have everybody see the listing of open and closed threads without them having permission to actually see the contents of one that isn't their own?

Adrian Schneider
24 Oct 2006, 00:49
Kind of unrelated code, but OK....

I don't have time to look at the specific permissions in the code, so I'll just use usergroups 5/6/7 (default staff groups).

UNTESTED...
In the 'Support Forum - Notices' plugin I supplied, add this to the bottom: if (
!is_member_of($vbulletin->userinfo, 5, 6, 7) and
in_array($thread['forumid'], $checkForums and
$vbulletin->userinfo['userid'] != $thread['postuserid']
)
{
print_no_permission();
}

Okay This is really good. this will be great for 2 of my forums as is.

So am I correct that you can set which forums or subforums you can apply this too?

also im wondering how I would modify this or if you could modify it so I can change a few things around for certain forums. eg. make it say 'open threads' and 'closed threads' As some forums I would like the open threads to always be at the top and I think you have done a great job at doing this.

thanks and hopefully I'll be able to change that name per forum.

Adrian Schneider
24 Oct 2006, 06:52
Go into your options and look for the new setting group... you can enable subforum checking as well as which forums to check.

That phrase is hardcoded into one of the plugins, it should stand out pretty easily because there isn't much code there...

Hornstar
24 Oct 2006, 06:57
cool however that would change the lot, what im after is both, so in a few forums I would have it say it like how you got it but in a few other forums I would change it to how I am wanting, I have a feeling that will change it overall.

also is this just a phrase I would edit to make it

Other Users - "This issue has been resolved! If you have a similar issue, please search the forums before creating a new thread." (link)

Adrian Schneider
24 Oct 2006, 06:59
So which phrases do you want on a per-forum basis? The 'Open Issues' and 'Closed Issues' one, or the 3 phrases in the SHOWTHREAD template?

The open issues and closed issues for now as on some forums I want to change that to something else.

Replace the 'Support Forum - Seperate Open from Closed' plugin with this: global $vbulletin, $threadCounter, $openThreads, $closedThreads;
$show['thread_seperator'] = false;

if (!$thread['sticky'] and $vbulletin->options['openAtTop'])
{
if ($vbulletin->options['openAtTop'])
{
$threadHeadings = array(
'issues' => array(
'Open Issues',
'Closed Issues'
),
'threads' => array(
'Open Threads',
'Closed Threads'
),
'customers' => array(
'Angry Customers',
'Happy Customers'
)
);

switch ($thread['forumid'])
{
case 1:
case 2:
$headings =& $threadHeadings['issues'];
break;

case 3:
case 4:
$headings =& $threadHeadings['customers'];
break;

default:
$headings =& $threadHeadings['threads'];
}

if (!$openThreads and $thread['open'])
{
$show['thread_seperator'] = true;
$thread['heading'] = $headings[0];
}
if (!$closedThreads and !$thread['open'])
{
$show['thread_seperator'] = true;
$thread['heading'] = $headings[1];
}
$lastOpenStatus = $thread['open'];
}

if ($thread['open']) $openThreads++;
if (!$thread['open']) $closedThreads++;
}Basically it has 3 different sets of phrases, and then a switch to figure out which set to use. Customize the values inside the switch to change which forums use what heading, and then default will handle the rest. I'll end up phrasing it next week when I get some time, but this isn't a bad solution.

Thank you SirAdrian

Love this :)

I'm having one small problem with the dividers and don't know how to remove this one I have marked off in red (Screenshot added)

Thank you for any help :)

Since the prefix hack adds a column, you'll have to adjust the addition to the threadbit template. Instead of <if ... >7<else />6</if>use<if ... >8<else />7</if>

Hi,

Thanks for your quick reply :)

I have tried changing these numbers on this code:

<if condition="$show['thread_seperator']">
<tr>
<td class="thead" colspan="2">&nbsp;</td>
<td class="thead" colspan="<if condition="$show['inlinemod']">5<else />4</if>">$thread[heading]</td>
</tr>
</if>

But no change :(

I must be going wrong somewhere lol

Here is a copy of my threadbit:

<if condition="$show['thread_seperator']">

<td class="thead" colspan="2">&nbsp;</td>
<td class="thead" colspan="<if condition="$show['inlinemod']">5<else />4</if>">$thread[heading]</td>

Hi,

I just tried it and the seperator is still there :(

EDIT:

I found what the problem was it was Separate Sticky and Normal Threads (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=117944)

Sorted now thanks for your help :)

Glad you figured it out.

That's why I hate hacks that add/edit templates at run-time; they are a pain in the ass to debug!

I can't seem to find where to turn this hack on for a specific forum. I've looked under 'edit forum' but the setting is not there. Please help :).

Adrian Schneider

It's hidden away in the vB. Options (probably your newest setting group at the bottom).

Nice HACK, but it conflicts with the Seperate Normal/Sticky posts HACK :(

Adrian Schneider
26 Oct 2006, 04:35
It shouldn't really "conflict" but it will give you two bars... Disable the other hack in your support forums.

There's only an one or off option..

Pitty, very usefull...

Alter the 'Separate Sticky and Normal Threads' plugin (forumdisplay_complete), change the initial if block from this: if ($vbulletin->options['gosterx1']toif ($vbulletin->options['gosterx1'] and !$vbulletin->options['openAtTop'])

people when list all support threads can see (using the "colored gif" near thread) is the support solve the problem (green gif) or if not solve it (red gif). The new support threads have the yellow gif that means "we are working on it and will give an answere as soon as possible) :)

Hi, for some reason it doesn't work for me. When I click on close it does show:

Notice: This issue has been resolved! The thread starter may re-open it if he wishes.

But in the support forum I don't see Open Issues/ Close Issues bars.

I have imported it and made the template changes. Do I need to change my threadbit template edit?

thanks

Edit: Ignore me.. I was editting the wrong template.

First of all, ty for this little hack, as its a good work overall. I have a feature to propose, that it may help the mods / admins, manage the open / close issues better.

When a thread is answered by users but the mod / admin doesnt know if the prob is actually fixed for the user, to be able to press a button in the Thread Tools, and send automatically a private message to the thread starter with a predefined text.

The text could be like this:

"Dear $username

There have been x days since your thread started and x replies. If u feel that your problem is fixed, please close the thread. If not, post your new results, so users / mods / admins, can reply again for your issues. If you dont do any action in the next 7 days, the thread will be auto closed. Ty for your understanding"

And so, after x days, the thread could be auto closed.

What do u think?

I believe will solve many probs, hope it can be implemented

Alter the 'Separate Sticky and Normal Threads' plugin (forumdisplay_complete), change the initial if block from this: if ($vbulletin->options['gosterx1']toif ($vbulletin->options['gosterx1'] and !$vbulletin->options['openAtTop'])

I've only just got around to trying the suggestion above, and unfortunatley it doesn't work.

The "Normal and "Sticky" seperators are gone, but the "Open and Closed" ones don't appear. When I close a thread it dissappears..

I tried installing it and appeared to be working OK except that when a thread was closed it disappeared except for admins. Also, even as an admin I couldn't see the status message for the thread.

Could be a conflict with another plug-in but I don't have time to try and find out which one.

It's hidden away in the vB. Options (probably your newest setting group at the bottom).

Suggestion: Add this information to your Install.txt file.

As a newbie, I spent a fair amount of time re-checking my Template Edits thinking there was an error perhaps. When in fact, I just hadn't gotten around to declaring which Forum ID was to be my Support Forum.

Thanxx! Nice MOD and easy system to allow my users to bring up any issues found on the forums.

One other question, not being a coder I rely heavily on exact instructions. Where you say:

Add the following to the beginning of the "threadbit" template:
<if condition="$show['thread_seperator']">
<tr>
<td class="thead" colspan="2">&nbsp;</td>
<td class="thead" colspan="<if condition="$show['inlinemod']">5<else />4</if>">$thread[heading]</td>
</tr>
</if>


Do you put that at the absolute beginning of the file? Meaning even before the first <tr> is encountered, or just after that very first <tr> ?

Referring to this first one already existing in the template...
<tr>
<td class="alt1" id="td_threadstatusicon_$thread[realthreadid]">
$thread[openclose_editable]

Adrian Schneider
18 Nov 2006, 06:08
Absolute beginning, yes. It will add another row before that one.

You need to set the forum permission which lets users open/close their own threads.

Nice hack, and I'll probably install it at visionscripts, but I am concerned with the fact that some of the plugin code is referring to vBulletin options that do not exist. Also, variables are not properly initialized which causes notice errors at error_reporting(E_ALL) level...

Adrian Schneider
22 Nov 2006, 02:00
I usually make a strong mental note to init variables, but in this case it doesn't really matter as vBulletin generates around 20 notices per page, and unlike other scenarios - this wouldn't affect functionality. If you want to "fix" it, just edit the "Support Forum - Sort By Open" plugin: find if (in_array($foruminfo['forumid'], $checkForums) and strpos($sqlsortfield, 'lastpost') !== false)
{
$sqlsortfield = "thread.open desc, $sqlsortfield";
$hook_query_where .= ' and thread.open <> 10';
$vbulletin->options['openAtTop'] = true;
}, below it add else
{
$vbulletin->options['openAtTop'] = false;
}

$openThread = 0;
$closedThreads = 0;
$lastOpenStatus = 'zz';

akanevsky
22 Nov 2006, 16:15
Ok. Also, perhaps you should replace the vBulletin options with a list of IDs with a per-forum bitfield setting...

and where did $vbulletin->options['supportforum_subforums'] come from? It is not in vBulletin options..

also, what is the reason you check for:
strpos($sqlsortfield, 'lastpost') !== false

and for:
!$thread['sticky']

?

Also, perhaps the thread conditional logic is a bit wrong. Maybe it should be this:

<if condition="can_moderate($foruminfo['forumid'], 'canopenclose')">
<if condition="$thread['postuserid'] == $vbulletin->userinfo['userid']">
<strong>Notice:</strong>:
This issue has been resolved! You may re-open it if you are still having problems.
<else />
<strong>Notice</strong>:
This issue has been resolved! The thread starter may re-open it if he wishes.
</if>
<else />
<strong>Notice</strong>:
This issue has been resolved! If you have a similar issue, please create a <a href="newthread.php?$session[sessionurl]f=$foruminfo[forumid]">new thread</a>.
</if>

Adrian Schneider
22 Nov 2006, 19:34
Wanted to start off simple, as I'm busy with 100 other things. ;)

You're the lucky one to notice the option is missing, Ive been meaning to issue an update but nobody noticed yet lol.

I use strpos because between 3.5 and 3.6 (or something along those lines) they changed that value which broke it on some boards.

I use !$thread['sticky'] because the separator is dependent on the transitions between the different thread types. It should ignore sticky threads or else you'll get a "Closed Issues" header at the very top of your stickies.

My condition is correct. I tested yours and it doesn't work properly.

akanevsky
22 Nov 2006, 20:04
I use strpos because between 3.5 and 3.6 (or something along those lines) they changed that value which broke it on some boards.

Why check for the value? I removed the check and it seems to work correctly. Why does it matter what the sort is?

I use !$thread['sticky'] because the separator is dependent on the transitions between the different thread types. It should ignore sticky threads or else you'll get a "Closed Issues" header at the very top of your stickies.

That's right, didn't think about it.

My condition is correct. I tested yours and it doesn't work properly.

Yep, it doesn't. But I changed it to the following, and that's what I am using (and it does work properly):

<if condition="$show['supportforum_message']">
<center>
<span class="smallfont">
<strong>
<if condition="$thread['postuserid'] == $vbulletin->userinfo['userid']">
Notice: This issue has been resolved! If you are still experiencing problems, you may reopen the thread.
<else />
<if condition="can_moderate($foruminfo['forumid'], 'canopenclose')">
Notice: This issue has been resolved! The thread may be reopened by the thread starter if he or she is continuing to experience problems.
<else />
Notice: This issue has been resolved! If you are experiencing a similar issue, please create another thread.
</if>
</if>
</strong>
</span>
</center>
<br />
</if>

It is better because if you do not need to call a can_moderate function (and thus avoid an overhead), then why do?

Adrian Schneider
22 Nov 2006, 20:08
It changes the sort order so that it sorts by sticky, then closed/open, then last post time IF you have it set to last post time (default). They changed it to or from (trying to remember exact values) lastposttime to thread.lastposttime. So it's not required, but I don't want it affecting other sort orders.

That final template looks better.

akanevsky
22 Nov 2006, 20:14
Well, I removed the strpos bit on my installation because I want it to sort by open/closed first regardless of secondary sort order. :)

If you can make it work with subforums automatically, it would be nice. But to make it flexible (e.g. enable subforum inheritance in some forums but not others) you'll need to make a bitfield-based forum setting... :)

I've installed this on a hidden sub-form for internal bug reports (once i've gotten it working I will implement it on a sub-forum for all users to report issues)

However, I can't seem to get it working.

I've installed, and I've made the template changes.

I've gone into the settings for the Support forum and added the forum ID.

I've open two threads in that sub-forum, and closed one of them. I don't get a seperator and I don't get the open/closed title either.

I've obviously overlooked something, but I'm not sure what.

Anyone have any ideas? I'm really looking forward to implementing this mod as it would be extremely helpful!

13 Mar 2007, 02:24
I believe (notice the believe - I could be completely wrong) that the mod doesn't actually control the ability of members to open and close a thread... it just basically seperates the threads that are opened and closed... You would need to give your members forum permissions to allow them to open & close threads... or in your case, no permissions to do thus.

I have installed and is working nicely - give me five minutes and I shall test my theory =0)

Cheers, Bree

I am not seeing anything along the lines of the screenshot included:
http://www.vblogetin.com/images/screenshots/solved_threads.jpg

I see no "Open Issues" or "Closed Issues". I logged in using our test account member and started a new thread and named it "new issue" but it appeared just as another thread in that forum. Nothing special looking about it. All edits were made correctly as I have double and quad checked.
I assigned that forum to the mod and I had no errors with the install. I am using 3.6.5.

What am I doing wrong or missing here?

Thanks in advance...

EDIT:
I do see the Closed Issue after closing a thread but there is not an "Open Issue" statment when opening one. Also I have a concern about giving members the use of open/close their own threads option since this allows them to do that in any forum. Is there a way to limit this to only the support forum?

is there a way to allow post icons?

In order to assign severity levels to the bugs that are reported, I've created a new set of post icons (numbers 1 - 4) and have allowed them only in the bug reporting forums and are only visible to certain user groups.

The post icon shows in the thread it's self next to the thread title, but it doesn't show in the forum display...if that makes any sense.

Any ideas on how to make this possible?

OK,

I double checked the modifications in the templates, I did all of them, they are there. I put the support forum in the options to be only the 1 ID just to make sure, but no matter which forum I am in there is zero change.

I must be doing something wrong... I even went back and made the #1 forum have all the right permissions and everything...

Something else I should look at? :|

Just to make it work without a question of having the correct forum enabled... I put it on the FIRST forum in the system... Cause, I have always had issues with finding which forum has what number...

would it be possible to get this hack to change the thread title to [Resolved by username] bla bla bla or something like that on the forumdisplay when it is closed and moved to closed thread.

OK,

I installed, no errors, everything that is NORMAL in my forums works fine... but there are basically NO changes. I double checked the modifications in the templates, I did all of them, they are there. I put the support forum in the options to be only the 1 ID just to make sure, but no matter which forum I am in there is zero change.

I must be doing something wrong... I even went back and made the #1 forum have all the right permissions and everything...

Something else I should look at? :|

D.I don't mind taking a look at it - PM me with AdminCP details if you want me to.

I love this mod And the only thing keeping it from being PERFECT is ......

I Try to keep all the open issues Closed and keep this forum top prority , I find that Im having to contact some of the users to get updates ect.... as they are not closing the threads ect.... And some others who get replys never post again ..

SO I need the system here to automatically Sub Scribe the thread to the thread starter via Instant Email notification when there a post in there thread

How Do I

Thanks

DMwould it be possible to get this hack to change the thread title to [Resolved by username] bla bla bla or something like that on the forumdisplay when it is closed and moved to closed thread.
Sorry guys, I don't plan on taking this hack any further. It was meant to be a simple solution for categorizing posts by status only.

Alter the 'Separate Sticky and Normal Threads' plugin (forumdisplay_complete), change the initial if block from this: if ($vbulletin->options['gosterx1']toif ($vbulletin->options['gosterx1'] and !$vbulletin->options['openAtTop'])

I have the 'Separate Sticky and Normal Threads' plugin installed, so I made the edit on line 36 of the 'Separate Sticky and Normal Threads' plugin and it works great. thanks much

Oh nice idea...but I have a question...

I have currently this mod installed on my board: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=149214

^^this enables the moderators to mark threads as solved etc...(and it gets auto locked).

I would just like to separate "open issues" from "closed issues"/Solved as shown in the ss. Is it possible??

you won't notice much of a difference either unless you have some open & closed threads in that specific forum

LouiseDM
13 Nov 2007, 15:51
That's not the point if i wanted that i could just take off the mod and do it normally
If there is any one willing to update this im willing to provide payment to a genuine coder

I would look at it myself but i don't have the time to sit there testing it out

you might try reading through the thread to see if others had the same issue with 3.6.10.

In my readings I recall running across a few posts, however, since I'm not running 3.6.10, I didn't pay any attention to them.

The code behind the mod is fine... just need to change the template output. Something along the lines of:


<vb:if condition="$show['thread_seperator']">
<br /><li style="background-color:#E36E00;color:#ffffff;font-weight:bold;padding:2px;">{vb:raw thread.heading}</li><br />
</vb:if>


At the top of threadbit will work.
