QuoteIt! version 3.1

I'm no longer able to put very much time into this mod, so I've set up a Subversion repository at http://www.vbulletinprogramming.com/projects/quoteit/ to allow others to help out. You can use the login "vbuser" with the password "vbulletin" to edit files. If someone would like to completely take over the mod, please contact me.


QuoteIt! allows you to have a database of quotes integrated with your forum. Users submit quotes that can then be voted on by the other users, using your choice of two rating systems. The average installation will show a random quote on the forum home page, but you can include it on any vBulletin page or on your portal home page.

If you'd like to see a demo, go to forums.monkeycrap.com.

Features:

Random Quote
- a random quote can be shown on any vBulletin powered page
- the administrator can set a default rating threshold that quotes must meet before showing up as the random quote
- a new random quote can be chosen at a specific interval of time, to reduce server load

Quote Database
- quotes can be searched, filtered, and sorted by many different criteria
- quotes have a "context" field that can be turned on or off to include more information about the quote
- quotes can be embedded in posts with bbcode
- each post and private message now has a "Submit to Quotes" link that allows users to quote things said on your forum more easily

Quote Ratings System
- quotes can be rated either plus/minus or on a scale from 1 to 5
- quotes below a certain total score or average score can be filtered out

Quote Management
- quotes can either be automatically approved or moderated
- the quote moderation que is like the que for posts, enabling the moderation of several quotes at once
- usergroup permissions are used for adding, editing, deleting, rating and viewing quotes
- most actions use AJAX to avoid page reloads

Don't forget to click install!

Currently known problems are listed here.

The files needed to edit the included images are attached to this post.

This hack is based on QuoteIt! 1.2, originally by magnus. The "submit post" feature was inspired by an addon by CtrlAltDel.

Older versions (no longer in development): QuoteIt! 3 for vBulletin 3.5.x | QuoteIt! 2.03 for vBulletin 3.0.x

Do you have any sort of caching enabled (APC or something similar)? Any other mods installed?

I really have no idea what would cause this, but try posting a screenshot of the options page along with what's actually in the datastore under quote_settings and I'll take a look at it.
there isn't even a quoter showing is what I am saying. If I followed the instructions and only got a partial install then I have no idea how that is possible.

DBs - I'm not sure why that would cause problems. I don't know anything about how vBulletin handles caching systems, but I'll put it on the list of things to look at. In the meantime, I guess you'll just have to disable it, which hopefully won't slow things down too much.

thepub - Try approving some of the quotes on your site.

Where were you trying to approve from? The moderate quotes section in your admincp? Make sure your permissions are set properly, then rebuild bitfields (admincp/index.php?do=buildbitfields).

I have installed vBExperience and would like very much to create a custom points count and award based on the quote count from QuoteIt!. Can anyone help with this? I am looking into the method as outlined, but if someone has performed this already it would save me time. If I end up creating this myself, I will be sure to share!

It seems that I managed to pull this one off myself. I am attaching the final file to share with anyone interested. Let me know if there are any issues encountered. It seems to be working for me flawlessly.

I have a custom template I've bought. This doesnt show up on forumhome upon implementation.

It shows on the default vb template.

Any help is appreciated.

Using 3.71, so this might not even work with 3.7

Ok, tell me how to fix the delete function please. I go to the list, select the one I want to delete and click delete.

The pop up box comes up saying its been deleted, but its still there.

Cooleyvol - Did you add $showrandomquote to the customized template? Post a few lines from around that point, if you can. As for the deleting, do you have soft delete enabled? If you do, they'll still be visible to you, but they'll go back in the moderation queue. If not, try opening the delete link in a new tab or window.

Dr. Bantham - Looks cool, good work.

Thanks! I like this idea - I've added your product, seems to be fine so far

Thanks dude. I got that worked out.

With moderation mode 'on', new quotes are still showing on the website immediately even though they're in the moderation panel to be approved.

How can I make them so that they don't appear until they are approved?

Is "show unapproved quotes to moderators?" on in the QuoteIt! options? Turn it off if it is.

Turned it off.

Are you saying that only the mods were seeing the unapproved quotes on the boards?

Only people who have permission to approve quotes should be able to see unapproved ones. Try logging out and seeing if you can still see them.

Been using this for a while - love this mod! Updated to 3.7.2 + templates and reinstalled latest quoteit. I've always had the quoteit mod display at the bottom of my home page (not under nav bar).

Everything is fine - except my close quote image is where it would be if my quoteit were under the navbar. It's just kind of floating behind stuff! The open quote is where it would be normally. Is this something I can adjust in the css file?
