vBFavorites v1.0
Mod Version: 1.00, by Mystis (Member) Mystis is offline
Developer Last Online: May 2004 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

This modification is in the archives.
vB Version: 2.2.x Rating: (3 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 18
Released: 30 Dec 2002 Last Update: Never Downloads: 3
Not Supported  

Alright everyone, here's my first (hopefully of many) released hack, so have mercy

This hack adds a category to your index.php page containing the X (customizable) most frequented forums by that particular user. This hack does not apply to guests however, or members who have no (or less than a customizable amount of) posts.

Not much more to it, it's a very simple 2 minute install and it should (although I haven't verified it) work across 2.2.x. A live demo will be available soon at Somethingleet, but for now some screenshots will have to do. Please let me know the url of the forums you install it on, if you do, I like seeing where my work is used

Screenshots:
Screenshot of what it looks like to your qualifying user with a sufficient number of posts - [here]
Screenshot of how it appears to a guest - [here]
Screenshot of how it appears to a registered user without a sufficient number of posts - [here]

Minihacks & Customizations:
Exclude a forum from favorites
Make 'Your Favorites' Username's favorites

If you like the hack, make sure and install it!

"most frequented forums by that particular user" ??? It looks as they are displayed random, not in any relation to the postingbehavior of a member.

No, they display the forums that the user posted most in. In the first screenshot the user posted 6 times in the main forum, 6 times in the secondary forum, and twice in the third-ary and fourth-ary forums. Third-ary is displayed over fouth-ary because it has a higher posting order.

A single SQL query, which you can find in line 33 of the installation text file It takes the 3 (or whatever number you specify) forums in which the user has made the most posts,

Wow! This is great!

P.S. i installed on a 2.2.6, so it should work from (at least) that and up.

In theory it should work for all vB 2.2.x versions

Hmm...since this is a standard forum/category, you would have to do some heavy template editing, which probably isn't worth the effort. If it's in real high demand then I might figure out how though, it's not something that I can do off the top of my head.
