Good news on the changes.

Is it possible to allow a nominated Usergroup to Award from a particular category. i.e. someone who is not Admin or Mod.

And bypass the need for using cps and issue awards directly from dropdowns on postbit?

It currently isn't possible for someone who isn't an admin/mod to issue an award. Though as I mentioned the award request system is being re-worked.

I also wouldn't allow issuing of awards from postbit dropdown, but might consider adding the ability to start the recommend/request award option from the postbit.

Thanks.

The guy who ran the Forum before us started with a modified version of modcp to allow another member to award - giving access only to the relevant category and nothing more. He then went on to create a drop down from postbit (?) which gave a direct way to issue awards (Staff and one other).

Annoyingly he passed on the Forum without any background paperwork, and I've not been able to replicate the modification since we upgraded to v4.

The modification to modcp still works.

I have the files he created (I think all of them, as they'll still be on the server) - not too sure about any template modifications.

Its squidsk decision what to include and what to update, although he seems to use some of me and CAG's suggestions

Anyway, me think Awards and such should be handled by the board administration (meaning admins and mods) not regular users.
In old phpBB and phpFusion we had a similar mod and it was always given by the board administration (in our vB Forum currently only Global Moderators can give awards from ModCP and only those that are "enabled" by administrators).

@squidsk: Some questions.
Added - New setting for controlling whether inactive awards are displayed in modcp, default is yes for backwards compatibility
Aren't they currently not included in display by default?
No whether if displayed or not me thinks that "inactive" awards should not be given in either ModCP or ACP. Thats why they're inactive
Added - New admin permissions, one for issuing awards and one for managing awards
Good idea, currently (at our forum) any admin with permission to manage awards can do anything in the mod. Maybe we will test this and report results. Thanks.

@alcazarx : Of course it's squidsk's choice on what to do with his mods!
We've used this Award System on our Forum since 2007.

I merely offered suggestions, as do others on these boards.

I only explain what facility we use/could use - and the ability of one other usergroup to issue awards reflects the way our Forum operates.

Nothing wrong with suggestions?

You two have made good suggestions and I try to implement any and all good suggestions that people make.

In modcp in the current version they are displayed and able to be awarded. That will no longer be the case. This was actually a request you made. On the admincp side, I'm leaving it as is where admins can issue inactive awards or not, as I don't think limiting admins or making them jump through hoops in areas they have permission is beneficial.
Good idea, currently (at our forum) any admin with permission to manage awards can do anything in the mod. Maybe we will test this and report results. Thanks.
I felt that the two aspects, issuing and managing, were sufficiently different that it warranted two different permissions.

Oops ,we already did it in both ModCP and ACP. We dont see a point in giving Awards that are "disabled". If you want to leave it as is, ok fine.

As told, we tried it and its working here (the hard part was to tell vB to read the updated bitfield_custom.xml again .We had to use tools.php for this.), but we had to split "award.php" (copying it to "award_issue.php") to avoid too much in-file code changes. So now we have the original file for those who can manage awards and the copy for those who can only give/revoke awards. Maybe you have a better workaround in your update.

Anyway, you'll have 3 permissions for the Award mod then, since you already Need the Standard
"Can manage Settings" to edit the mods settings

If you go through the Award Manager you can do stuff with awards but everything is organized by awards (and award categories). Award User Manager is where you go to deal with awards for a specific user. When you click on it you'll be taken to a simplified version of the user search page from admincp/user.php which will let you search for a user you want to manager the awards for.

So, here are all changes we have in our Award System (including the award_request_in_modcp as suggested by the author) - if someone find them useful.

@squidsk: If this is not permitted, attachment will be removed. You can use it for further updates, since you planned already some functionality of it

@CAG CheechDogg: Sorry, mass-manage of awards is not included, since we dont have this
Its up to master squidsk to implement it.

/* edit
The plugin_code_change as in http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showp...postcount=1793 has to be done too, to make the file visible in ModeratorCP.

You need to enable that function in the Award settings.
