This hack is for vBullein 2.2.8 and is being built on a newly installed version of 2.2.8.

This hack is not ready to be installed home boards that have members it is still in the building stage beta 1.

Dev. See todo list for addition to be added.

Again I say this is not ready to be put on a member populated board it is still in development

When it is finshed it will allow members to create a forum in a cat. you determine.

Kinda like gamers.com but for vbulletin.


finished: 10-31-02
1. user can create a forum
2. only registered users can create forums
3. redirect back to index
4. integrated with vb with templates

still more todo!

ToDo List:
Todo:

1. Take some of the hidden input types from the createforum template and hardcore them into the insertforum.php script

2. Make script determine which user created the forum and insert them as the mod for that forum

3. Make script determine if user has created and forum. If they don't allow unless set in admin that you allow them
to create more then one forum. If user has not created a forum allow them too.

4 admin section of script to show which users have created a forum and the name

5. Hopefully we can make this , but it in not vital. Forum creator control panel section which allows them
to make other members mods of there forum and will allow them to delete mods they added. User the main creator added
cannot delete the main mod.

6. if we make the control or if we don't after creation of the forum send an email telling them how to access it control or that they have done it.

7. eithier access creator control panel from profile or separate link

8 . online locations

9. redirect ...we need to change it to only redirect if user creates a forum not all the time like when they click the link back to main forumhome

10. show in members list (maybe) who has created a forum.
this could be an opional addon

Please help me finish this hack...

Also if you complete any of the todo list please private message me the file named like this vBaddforum-beta1-change-date.zip
also please include a txt in the zip of things changed.

this would be great if members could add a logo, change the colours, etc. for their own forum based around the main style. but this is probably way too big a challenge for a hack. :)

The are already hacks for the Mod CP that allow users to do this.

NTLDR:

Are you saying there is already hack that lets users create forum or a hack that just lets mods change things ?

A hack that lets mods change things.

They were released a couple weeks ago, I think.

Big security whole with letting users do that. *steals your cookie information*

Also I have made a hack where users can have their own custom styles.

That allows mods to change styles and replacements, not add forums ;)

forums/insertforum.php needs to have a link or redirected to index.php

Hey,

I actually put it in the addvbforum.php...so would i just put

eval("standardredirect(\"".gettemplate("createaforum_redirect")."\",\"\$url\");");

in the insert forum and take it out of addvbforum.php ?

8 . online locations
I think I could do that - not certain though
Could try adding:
case 'addvbforum':
$userinfo[where] = "Creating new <a href=addvbforum.php'>Forum</a>";
break;
Right above:
// Let's show the admin the location but put something false up for everyone else..
in online.php

I THINK, im not sure:)
btw, your redirect is in the wrong place, it goes to index.php in addvbforum.php, its meant to in insertforum.php

chad777
04 Nov 2002, 18:07
No I haven't tried it yet...I am trying to get the rest of the main part of the script done first

I think I am giving up on this hack.. :(

I thought if I got a lot of it done then other members would throw in an help out , but that didn't happen.

If anyone wants to make this into a full hack go right ahead I would like to have it for my site but I am only a beginner at php/mysql.

Thanks
