is there any need for the stars hack?

is there any need for the stars hack?

i'm asking this as star can be easily added without any hack !

you can put plain html code in the custom titles and have a stars hack =)

ex: administrator<br><img src=http://www.yourserver/images/stars/admin_stars.gif>


Is there any benefit in the star hack?


Please i'd like to know.


Mone'

You can define different levels, ex 100 posts = 2 stars, 250 posts = 3 stars etc When an user reached 100 posts then his 1 star changes auto to 2 stars etc etc

yes but you can use html in the title bit and trasfor it title plus stars !!

you can set ulimited ammount of stars increments

for example you could make


newbie<br><img src=/img/1stars.gif> and setting it to 0 post required


member<br><img src=/img/3stars.gif> and setting it to 50 posts required


In this way you have a fully functional stars hack without needing to hack !

Only on new posts though, im sure it shoud edit the old posts by a user?

OK THIS IS WEIRD

have a look at http://www.rapdis.com/forum/showthre...=&threadid=510 and my screen shot.

it works for sum users and not others, i understand the bit bout custom titles which is now off but it still only works for sum users???????????

Thanks

Did you updated the user titles? Under "Update Counters" -> "Update User's Titles and stars"?

What a fantastic idea Mone'! Thank you so much for posting it.

I was considering adding a stars hack, but I tend to prefer template edits over fullblown hacks. Since I just wanted a basic implementation of the stars hack, this works perfectly for me.

One quick question though, how can I edit the Administrator account so that shows 5 stars? Since the Administrator title is not part of the normal User Titles, I can't find a way to add stars to the Admin account. :ermm:

You probably don't have many admins, right? So why not just use custom titles for the admins and upates stars manually.
