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.

Try this for me?

Change the query in that plugin to:


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

And see if that works for you.

..But it's not at all recommended if you have a large board with many users who make use of custom smilies. I've done it because I have a small board, with not so many users and have limited the smilies per user to 20.

Perhaps somehow grabbing the quoted user's userid and adding it to the query is a possibility?

I was looking at some code from an old "Who Quoted Me?" plugin. While it would need reworking for use here, I think it could be a possibility..

Unfortunately, it didn't work..

I've a horrible feeling that an additional query may be needed, unless it can be done with joins?


Of course, another fault with my current "solution" is that all users can use anyone's custom smilies, using the replacement.

What's weird is when debugging, it works just fine - when posting as another (test) user, without the debugging code in place, it doesn't parse the smilie. :|

MySmilies vB will not support parsing smilies in a quoted users post, unfortunately. I've tried several things without success, maybe I'm over thinking it.

Aside from that, thinking about it - any work around for it would potentially cause several queries per post, and that's not good.

I noticed that when I changed the query (forgot to post), so quickly reverted it..


--EDIT--
I've had to uninstall this, it's causing a couple of nasty conflicts - executing additional queries. On v3arcade; for a game's high scores, it was running an extra query for every score on a page.

Hmm, I'll look into disabling it, when it comes across v3arcade - so that way you can reinstall

Sorry...great mod, but had to uninstall due to mysmilies not parsing in quotes. I'll keep my eye on it, though.

Look forward to an update with a fix. If no fix, well...at least you tried.

So 3 uninstalls apparently because of the quote issue - Oh well :\ As I said, there may be a way to do it, but you could easily create 2 queries or more PER post in a thread.

Eric, if you do find a way around it why not make it an optional choice? And, let people by enabling that feature they'll be weighting more strain on the server.

New version should be released within a week or so. It'll have the ability to place a users custom smilies in the "More Smilies" popup.

Hi Eic,

I hope you've also addressed that minor bug (if you can call it a bug) with the link not showing in UserCP when a user is on private.php page.

This is a great mod... question though. Since I have installed this mod I get this after some of the smilies... even smilies from default vbulletin page:

" class="inlineimg" />

it appears immediately after the smile just like the above example.

I have the fix inline attachments thing set to yes as well. But that does not fix this issue.
