Hehe. I put this little thing together. It's nothing fancy, but it does it's job.
It works together with the points hack. Your items and the cost (in points) are kept in an array inside itemshop.php. You'll have to edit the file each time you want to add a new item.I might add database support for items later and a cp interface, but right now, it's good.
First, you'll need to add another profile field.
Title: Item or whatever you want to call it
Description: up to you
Max Input: 100
Field Length: 25
Display Order: current fields +1
Required: no
Hidden: no
Editable: no

it's basically just like the points. Remember the field number and change it in the file. Default is(if you haven't added any other fields before):
points: 5
item: 6

in itemshop.php you may want to change the $loop variable. Associated images should be put in the http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/images/itemshop/ direcotry, and have the same name you gave the item in the array.
if you don't want associated images, you must take them out in the file and in the itemshop template.
upload the file itemshop.php

make a template called itemshop, and put in the contents of the itemshop.txt file

in the postbit template:
under: <a href="moderator.php?s=$session[sessionhash]&action=points&userid=$userinfo[userid]" target=_blank>Points:</a> $post[field5]<br> (or whatever you have for your points)
put: <a href="itemshop.php">Item:</a> $post[field6]<br>

if you wish any new user to have "No Item" instead of nothing in the postbit template, run this query:
ALTER TABLE `forums`.`userfield` CHANGE `field6` `field6` CHAR(250) DEFAULT 'No Item' NOT NULL
change forums to the name of the database, and field6 to the number of your item field.
please note that it won't modify any existing users. Just users that register after you run the query.

That's about all. I'll edit this if i forgot anything.
Enjoy!

Update: Added error pages if you don't have enough points and if you already have the item. Added thank you page.
The items will only be linked if you can afford them.

Good job, Vivi (Crono). Got it installed and working. Modified it a bit of course too. :D

I haven't noticed anything along the lines of the error pages. Either they aren't working or haven't been integrated yet.

Also, Vivi. When people purchase an item for over there current point total, it gives them a negative number, like -900. They can still get the item though.

hmmm ill(alex) will look into it.

afterlab: there shouldn't be any negative number. there's an if statement that compares your points to the the item you want to buy. If you don't have enough points you get am error message. (you actually shouldn't even see that at all, because there's no link if the item costs more than you have.

my conclusion is that you did something wrong when editing itemshop.php

watch for
if($points >=$value) {
that if statement checks checks your points. if your have more of equal to the points of the item you want to buy it will continue. if not, it will send you to the error page:
header ("Location: itemshop.php?action=error&why=points");

tsk it was the old version again, here is he fully fixed version.
ouch. forgot template. :?:

I was working on my own, but maybe I won't have too!!

Let me check this one out!

O damn:(

I thought this would be like the other persons store, where users can purchase custom titles, new name etc

Hey maybe you would like to work on something like that with me, if so pm me:)

Ack, It's for RPG Boards!

I was also looking for the Shinra Store Hack

Im still working on my edition, hard :\

I've created a way for multiple items, alternating tables, and item groups for this hack.

I was the original creator of the Item Shop name, idea, and template design. I have yet to get any credit.

The Shinra Store Hack isnt' a publicly available hack. It's used at ShinraOnline.com

My hack can show Multiple Items, Item Groups, and a much more organized code.

Afterlabs version of the hack is pretty sweet. I was playing around with it last night. I want to make it into a table driven format to add stats and such. Now lets see if I can find the time.

afterlab

Cool, thanks Reeve. I have a lot of time tonight to work on it, so hopefully by tonight, something will be finished.

err.... afterlab.... you just copied my code 3 times....
and i also think you have a bug somewhere in your (my) code, like Sano said: "Hahahaha! I totally exploited that bug. I now have the most expensive item in every category, and 9,300 RP. Go me!"

right now, i'm planning on adding AdminCP integration and database, which would allow multiple categories and items, descriptions, etc, etc, etc.

and custom titles and stuff too.

Why do you have to be so negative? If I were you I would shut my trap... If you dont have anything nice to say then don't say anything at all... We lost a good hacker "Nakkid" because of negative comments like this.

I'm working on a way to premiere a RPG battle system. Each item will have it's own ID, and it will call that up... Blah blah blah. You'll see.

Neo
02 Mar 2002, 18:10
Well thats good, but releasing it would be a mistake, and would be in vain of me and Knoman. It was his original idea for this hack and now everyone what to make it, or is trying to make it, or is going to use/release it. So you can see why I would be a little annoyed about it. Since I am one of the coders that is making it, and once I finish this nice system for only a few forums.... 200 other sites pop up and have it..... then my and his site seem like just another board..... thats why I dont intent on ever releasing it or making a different one....

afterlab
02 Mar 2002, 18:14
Well okay. I'll release it to ya, since you're my affiliate and all. But until permission is granted, I will not release it.

Neo
02 Mar 2002, 18:49
Many thanks to you. I do support open source... but with this hack it just seems like it should be keep to the ones that make it, or somehow buy it, and you dont have to release your code to me, I would just like to see it in action when you get in up and running on your site.

I'm using the hack on my boards and it rules :) I've just edited it a bit (Sorting in price order, fixed the little selling bug, etc.). My boards at www.rpgmaniacs.com/forum if u want :)

oh crap. my computer has been messed up for a while. I just hope it will get fixed soon, so i can work on all this stuff.
i'm thinking up a battle system. I just need to figure out some stuff.
Well, a lot has happened in 5 days, since i was last online. Oh boy.

Well, it's nice to see this whole thing grow.

I have a question.
Why do any of you post a hack here on a hackers forum and then not release it? Do you get some sick, twisted sense of enjoyment to see those less fortunate grovel beneath you? Or is it that you would like to shamelessly promote your site here in hopes to gain some free traffic to your sites? In more simpler terms, let the author do as he wishes and pipe down. Your version is only exclusive if YOU wish to keep it to yourself. Should someone else make it, then leave it up to them to release it or keep it to them selves. My god, Final Fantasy fans are a dime a dozen. They come in droves just like FF related sites. Shinra is nothing special if you ask me. Its a site with the name of a clan in a final fantasy game yet have nothing to do with FF at all. Same boring index and crap design. I would see why you would have to resort to shameless plugs to get any attention.

OK HUGE PROBLEM VERY BIG!!!!!!!!!!IM FURIOUS

Ok i install itemshop, it works GREAT

I add a new catogory, late i dont like. So i delete it. I add a new catogory and its order is "3". I click add items, but under default it says order "4". I try it with keeping it 4 and i test it, the damn item wont appear in posts, neither will the no item thing, so i try it again, this time changing the 4 to a 3, nothing happens

How do i fix this? This is making me extreamly angry!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
