What Does This Hack Do?

This hack puts the control of the smilies on the users. It lets any user (that you give permission to) upload or modify the smilies that he can use.

These are not the smilies that vb uses, these are user-customized smilies. The smilies that you already have in place are preserved and are still used. But users may upload their own smilies for their use, and they are kept separate from the standard forum smilies.

For users:
  • Users can keep a library of their own smilies (they can upload them from their computer or web)
  • Users enter their replacement text, for example, :iamhappy: would be changed to their own user happy smilie
  • The custom smilies are parsed in any post, signature, or pm
  • If they have enabled the WYSIWYG editor, smilies are shown there

For administrators:
  • Usergroup control of who may upload custom smilies
  • Usergroup control of the size (width, height, size in bytes) of the smilie
  • Smilie quota, both for max number of smilies and max number of bytes or hard disk space
  • The administrator can choose where to save the smilies (the directory, default: mysmiliesvb)
  • Auto-template Injection - if the appropriate template hooks are available, you will not need to make any template edits at all, if edits needed you only need to paste a single variable where you need it



Installation Instructions

See the included Installation Instructions.txt file in the sv_mysmiliesvb.zip zip file.

ADDITIONAL NOTE:
A limitation exists with the fix that rectifies the problem of attachments showing when also posting them inline within the same post; when applied, all attachments will need to be displayed inline, if they have not been, then the ones that have not been posted inline will be hidden along with the ones that have been posted inline. Read Post #106 for more information on this. -- I'm working on this




Uninstall Instructions
  1. Delete mysmiliesvb.php from your forum's root directory.
  2. Delete the mysmiliesvb directory from your forum's root directory.
  3. Delete class_dm_mysmiliesvb.php from your forum's /includes directory.
  4. Delete bitfield_mysmiliesvb.xml from your forum's /includes/xml directory.
  5. Delete delete.gif from your forum's /images/misc directory (if more than one style remember to delete it from all misc directories).
  6. Optional Step: This step is only if the auto template injection does not work, and you did the optional template edits.

    In the USERCP_SHELL template, find and delete:

    Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
    Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

    In the navbar template, find and delete:

    Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
    Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

  7. Uninstall the product in vB using the AdminCP Product Manager.



To Do List

Features are being done in the order that they appear on the list.
  1. Admin Control Panel utility to view/delete one, some or all custom smilies
  2. Add custom user smilies to the misc.php?do=showsmilies page and to the "More Smilies" popup.



Version History
v3.8.005 - June 23rd, 2011
-- Fixed: "Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach()" errors.
-- Changed: how the smilie datastore cache is generated/accessed.
-- Added: Option to pull all user smilies for the editor or just the current user id's smilies.

v3.8.004 - January 15th, 2010
-- Changed: query() calls were being used instead of query_read()
-- Changed: Smilies are now built and added to datastore cache
-- Changed: Since smilies are stored in the datastore, smilies are no longer queried/parsed by userid.
-- Fixed: Custom smilies not parsed when quoted by other users.
-- Added: /includes/functions_mysmiliesvb.php - build_mysmilies_datastore() function.

v3.8.003 - August 5th, 2009
-- Fixed: Ok, should finally be fixed on upgrade - no more parse errors.
-- Fixed: Those upgrading from Mosh's version should be fine now.

v3.8.002 - August 4th, 2009
-- Fixed: errors when upgrading from previous versions of MySMilies should be fixed.

v3.8.001 - August 4th, 2009
-- Initial v3.8.0 release - mod taken over by Eric Sizemore (SecondV)
-- Fixed: standard_error calls were not using eval() as they should be
-- Fixed: Some queries were not using TABLE_PREFIX
-- Fixed: Even though phrases were in place, some parts of the mod used hardcoded langauge strings.
-- Fixed: Some errors in templates, missing ending tags, etc.
-- Fixed: Upload - the upload source didn't appear to be detected properly.
-- Changed: "maxversion" in the product XML increased.
-- Changed: "hard delete" option no longer on by default.
-- Changed: The "mysmiliesvb" table was altered to have KEY's on the "userid" and "dateline" columns. Hopefully this will increase performance/smilie lookups.



Thanks

My thanks go out to Kentaurus (who originally created this fantastic hack), Mosh who updated the hack to v3.7, and Paul M who gave permission to use some of his install code.

It comes with your vBulletin download - go to the vB members area, download the 3.8.3 archive - then upload the 'cpstyles' folder to your forum root

Tried to upload a .png file and got:
This PNG image has the incorrect file extension.

Also might want to make mention someplace on the users screen the format's accpeted as well as file sizes as defined in the ACP so users know what their limitations are.

That's determined by vB's upload system, not this hack.

Uses vBulletin's allowed extensions, but will add this to my todo list.

end of quote
Well for my users I mentioned that with help of "phrase menager" adding info about filesizes and how many smilies they can upload....just abowe "browse" button when user should upload one

But wouldnt hurt to see this automated

Regarding to my issue (sorryz to be pain in but)

I think its cause vba not this mod...but with my poor knowledge I just dont know how to make these smilies show up anywhere within vba modules

smilies there dont show up as they are following wrong link for some reason
http://www.#####.com/forums/admincp/mysmiliesvb/mysmilie_1.gif

my vba is not in same directory as forums

Just to make sure it's not a bug with MySmilies - does this happen on the forum anywhere? Or just the shoutbox?

Ah yes, that could be quite annoying..

The only "obvious" fix I can think of is to use [img] tags for custom smilies in quotes? Is that possible?

SecondV, great plugin.

I have managed to get this to show under my UserCP but doesn't show when accessing the private.php page.

If you do not mind can you gimme specific instructions how I can get the link to show in UserCP even when someone has accessed their PM inbox? Thanks, much appreciated!
