vBshout Automatic Pruning

NOTE: Does not work with Inferno vBshout


What does it do?

This addon will automatically prune (remove all shouts) from the vBshout Shoutbox.

*You can set the time when the product will prune the Shoutbox.


How do I get vBshout?

vBshout 2.0
vBshout 2.1


.: Installation :.


1. Upload pruneshout.php to your /includes/cron/ folder
2. Import the product product-shoutbox_prune.xml



.: Upgrading :.

Upgrading from 1.0 / 1.0

1. Upload and overwrite /includes/cron/pruneshout.php
2. Import the product product-shoutbox_prune.xml (Make sure overwrite is turned on)


.: Configuration :.


By default the shoutbox will prune every Sunday night at 11.59pm

If you wish to change this proceed to the following steps.


1. On your admincp find Scheduled Tasks. Expand the group and then click on Scheduled Task Manager
2. Find Shoutbox Pruning and select Edit from the dropdown menu, then click go.
3:

You can change the settings to whatever you want.

Note: * means every. So if you had it as Hour: * then it would run every hour.

Get the idea?

4. Once you have finished click save



.: Version History :.

1.0: Initial Release2.0: Bug fix & after prune message
1.10: Bug fix and after-prune message.
1.20: Fixed table prefix for maximum compatibility

View Release Notes


.: Future Releases :.
  • Direct link in admincp to prune the shoutbox
Thanks
Distance


Note: This has been tested with vBshout 2.0 and 2.1. Please backup your forums before installing this mod. I say this so I am not liable for any data loss etc although that situation is EXTREMELY unlikely.

.: v1.0 Release Notes :.

In vBshout 2.1 Only!!

Because vBshout 2.1 is a file based shoutbox when the the Cron script runs to prune the Shoutbox the database will clear the shouts however the file will still have the shouts stored.
Even though the shouts have been cleared the shoutbox will not update until a new shout is made.
I plan to release a version that will also clear the html file soon.

.: v1.10 Release Notes :.

Original bug fixed.
When the shoutbox prunes it will display a message saying the shoutbox has been successfully pruned.

.: v1.20 Release Notes :.

Fixed table prefix for maximum compatibility

hey nice work, look forward to the one that will clear the html file as well, will install it later on. thanks.

Distance 08 May 2007 07:52

Yeah its because its a flatfile system.. Annoying eh :)

Please click install :)

working anybody?

Distance 08 May 2007 16:43

There is no reason whatsoever why this should not work unless you do not have vBshout installed.

It would be nice if after it prunes it would say, "Weekly Shoutbox Prune Complete" in the shoutbox.
Edit: And would include the next time for cleanup but, that's not really necessary.

Distance 08 May 2007 19:16

I was going to implement something where it adds the message

'The shoutbox will auto prune in x minutes.. etc'

I suppose I could add a message for after the prune aswel

Problem solved with my suggestion. :p

I have already solved the problem :)

The problem was making sure it was compatible with both versions 2.0 and 2.1. It was surprisingly easier than what I thought considering they are two totally different systems.

Pending final testing and possibly another feature implemented the new v1.10 will be released tomorrow evening.

Thank's for update!
BTW Distance is it any chance to do the following:
NOT delete, but rename shouts file (i'm talking about 2.1 version) and create new empty file?

Distance 09 May 2007 16:57

You have the concept of the flatfile system wrong.

This is how it works:

The shoutbox reads from the html file
When a new shout is made it is sent to the database
The database updates the html file

This way everytime someone loads up the shoutbox it only has to read a small html file (with only the latest X shouts stored) without having to bring up the whole shout table.

There would be a way but for the amount of people who would use it it isn't worth the hasstle.
