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.

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!
I'm not entirely sure what you're asking.

Good.
When someone accessing their PMs they can view the links inside the UserCP.

On my forum all the links are there except for the My Smilies one for your plugin. So, how do I get it to show on the private.php page.

I hope that makes better sense.

The link to My Smilies will not show up unless the usergroup has the permissions to use My Smilies. AdminCP -> Usergroups -> Usergroup Manager -> Edit Usergroup:

I've done that and it does show for all my users when they access their UserCP.

However, no one can see it when they're accessing their private message inbox, which would be this URL:

http://www.yourforum.com/forum/private.php

Try it on your board and see if you can still see the link on the left.

Not a false alarm for me, custom smilies other than a user's own, aren't working when quoted - just the replacement text is being displayed.

About the showing in quotes stuff... it shows the smiley when you quote your own post with your own custom smiley, but it doesn't show when someone else quotes it, because they don't have the smiley so the text doesn't get parsed.

It would be nice if that could be fixed. Also, right now custom smileys are shown in the html box with all the other smileys. This looks kinda bad, so I disabled that, but it doesn't show in 'more smileys' either. Is there some way that could be fixed as well?

Otherwise, great mod, thanks a lot.

As stated earlier in this thread about "More Smilies", that will be in the next release.

As for the Quote issue - I'm looking into it, I'm not sure if it's going to be that easy of a fix.

Not sure what to tell you, as it works on my board just fine. But give me some time, I'll try to see if I can find any possible causes.

Regarding the quote box bug..

It can be fixed by removing this from the query on the bbcode_parse_complete plugin:

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

..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..
