Cel User's Social Groups on Forum Home (like forumlist, fully templated)

Not Supported Uses Plugins Template Edits Additional Files Translations  


What does it do?
  • Shows all social groups the actual user is a member of or is subscribed to, just below the forumlist (or anywhere else on forumhome).
  • If there are new messages, the corresponding forum statusicon is highlighted - just like in forumlist.
  • Instead of the statusicons, you can show the group's icon
  • If there are no groups to show, you can choose to show a teaser message.

Things to set in AdminCP/Options
:
  • use template hook to output or - more flexible - make manual template edit
  • show member of / subscribed to /nothing
  • sort by name or last message date
  • limit max number of groups shown, then link to appropriate page (grouplist for members, usercp for subscribers)
  • restrict use by usergroup
  • show a teaser message if there are no groups to show
  • show buttons to open new discussion etc.
  • apply custom css to grouptitle
  • trim group description to max length or disable
  • parse bbcode in group descriptions
  • use a different set of statusicons for groups than for forums
  • show groupicon instead of statusicon, and choose whether you want to show original size or resized to standard statusicon size

Looks
  • Out of the box: copies the standard look of the forumlist on forumhome.
  • Fully templated.

Install/upgrade
  1. Upload folder "images" to your forum root (can be omitted if you do not want to use the buttons).
  2. Import the product file.
  3. Check settings in AdminCP->Options->Social Groups on Forumhome.
Technical stuff
  • 3 templates (following the forumbit-scheme)
  • 2 plugins
  • 2 queries to forumhome (only if groups are shown, of course).
  • a bunch of phrases (prefix: cel_sgfh_).
  • 4 png-buttons, taken from the silk icon set.
Limitations
  • Marking of new messages only works with database, not with cookie based marking of read threads (-> AdminCP setting)
  • 3.7 Discussion groups will show up as "no messages yet" as long as there was no message written under a version 3.8.0 or higher

Version history
  • 4.0.006: fixed minor display bug when no discussions yet in group and fixed encoding issue reported by Been_Told
  • 4.0.005: fixed small PHP 5.3 issue
  • 4.0.004: fixed group's icon styling issues (thanks to ZexTasy for some useful hints) and added resize option, implemented suggestions (f.e. using template hook now)
  • 4.0.003: Adapted to vB4 beta 3, first public release
  • 4.0.001: Ported to vB4 alpha 1
  • previous see 3.8 versions here.
The 3.8 version of this mod can be found here.

I dont think the icon error is just this mod. I am getting that exact same issue with other mods such as custom forum icons. I have no clue whats doing it.

Hopefully I didn't miss the fix action for this, but I just installed this mod yesterday and I'm having this issue as well. When read - (even when using the Mark this Discussion as Read or Mark this Group as Read options ) - it's still showing the unread icon.

Thanks for any support.

Hi @Cellarius, is it possible to integrate in the plugin this function?

to the additional.css to format all the icons the same size. Probably not the best option but it works.

Great Kevin, many thanks.

Groups is a clickable link that will take the users into domain/groups.php and they can search the full group list.

I am playing this on my dev site at the moment and even though the mod is no longer supported, it's extremely functional.

Thanks Scott,
no I mean that generally this mod shows in home page only the subscribed groups and not all groups created. So I want know if is there a way to show all groups (also those not subscribed) in the forum home page.

not with this mod. This probably could be done with a php script and adding this as a sideblock item, but it would depend on the number of groups you have. On my site, I already have 300+ groups and there is no way I would want have code listing this all out.

Do you think?
In the end I think that must be in a part of code something that say the plugin to "show only the subscribed groups" maybe changing this command can work in this way.
Sure must be somewhere where is wrote this in the code if the plugin take only the subscribed group.
The problem is to know what and where must be changed to have this function.

Try removing the following code lines from plugin forumhome_code lines at hook forumhome_start:

at/near line 91

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

at/near line 93

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

This should show all groups, but will render the other options useless.

I would advise against making that change if you have a more than a very reasonable number of groups.
