Hello Fellow vBulletin.org Members,

I bring greetings from Appleworld. Lol. Sorry, it's been awhile since my last AdminCP related hack. This time I'm turning more towards Administrator to Administrator communication via quick posting software under the vBulletin AdminCP backend. I don't know, why else would I post it here. Lol. Anyways, here's what it is.

Admin. 2 Admin. Notes Hack is a small hack but can help very greatly especially for those forums who have many Administrators who are always on the go and really don't have the time to post a quick thread. I believe there are more than enough of you out there. ;) This hack is almost portraying itself as a "dry-erase" board for quick messages to leave for your close "vBFamily".

I'm currently unable to take screenshots so if any of you would be willing, I'd love ya da death. Lol. Since it is an Administrative feature, I'm ofcourse, unable to show you a working system, basically why I need someone to install and take screenshots. Well, with all that said and done, the only thing you have to do is click install and download. It comes with a detailed MSNotePad version of the Installation and only requires one table on your database.

Enjoy and thank you.

UPDATED! ONCE AGAIN! LOL!

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

Many years later...
An update for 2.3.x is underway.
Emails have been sent on the news.
Lemme d/l the software and I'll get it out as quick as possible.
This time, it'll be titled 'Administrator Notes' :nervous:

Hi Anthony,

This is a useful idea for a hack...... thought I'd set it up and come back with a couple of screenshots for you.

But I got this error when I tried to run the query.

MySQL said: You have an error in your SQL syntax near '\'notes\' LONGTEXT NULL DEFAULT \'NULL\', \'userid\' INT(11) NOT NULL DEFAULT' at line 2
Any ideas?

Sounds good, I think I'll install this now and see what its like :D

Sorry Talisman. I need to fix that quick. Thanks. ;)

UPDATED!

Looks interesting, I'll ponder installation after I see some screenshots. :p

Im a little confused - Although others seem to understand this hack, I dont know what it does. Would someone kindly explain what exactly this does:)?

NTLDR 29 Nov 2002 22:18

It looks like a small PM system for use in the ACP, instead of posting a thread/pm'ing all admins, you post a message in the ACP instead :D

Thats what it looks like to me :)

Thanks NTLDR:D
This would be even cooler if you could use it with mods

LOL.... I'm just not having any luck with this today. Just tried the update and got a slightly different error this time:

Quote:

MySQL said: You have an error in your SQL syntax near '\'0\', `timestamp` INT(11) NOT NULL DEFAULT \'0\', `username` VARCHAR(50) NOT NU' at line 1
(BTW I tried to send you a webmail, Anthony, but that address isn't accepting delivery.)

Will check back later. Has anyone else got this installed yet?

What exactly does this hack do?

I didn't quite get it from your description :D

The table creation query should work. This is it:

CREATE TABLE `adminnotes` ( `notes` LONGTEXT NULL, `userid` INT(11) NOT NULL DEFAULT '0', `timestamp` INT(11) NOT NULL DEFAULT '0', `username` VARCHAR(50) NOT NULL)

I didn't have any problem when I tested it just now. Give it a try. Like I stated on the installation file, you may want to download the DB Query Hack that FireFly and I innovated. Btw, you can also catch me at: [email protected] Good luck.

EDIT: Sorry, added a semi-colon at the end.

Lol. That's become quite a popular question Mist. Basically it is a small hack that allows you to post notes and has them show up for your Administrators on the ACP Index Home. It's very useful for the many Administrators on the go. Whether your just reminding others or maybe even yourself, it's a great way for quick communication.

Oh that sounds pretty cool
