Forum stats on signature image

vB Version: 2.3.x Rating: (4 votes - 4.75 average) Installs: 64
Released: 26 Mar 2003 Last Update: Never Downloads: 29
Not Supported  

Remember the forum rules here at vB.org and don't exceed the signature dimensions: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showt...threadid=50062 . Signatures in violation of the rules will be suspended. --filburt1

Hi all,

What this hack does:
Calls up your Forum statistics (like No. of Members, Threads and Posts) and creates a new image on your server using GD which you can use as a signature image, where ever you like - have a look at my signature and you'll see what I mean. This is only my 2nd hack - so be kind to me

In order to have the image created, say every 15 minutes you will need to set up a cronjob. Infos are provided in the instructions.txt, and alternatives for those who do not have access to crontab on their server.

Support:
Because I'm pretty busy, I will provide only limited support. Will look in here once a week or so.

Credits:
to kars10 for kicking me in the ass and getting me to code this - thanks karsten

greets
tina

Update 23.06.2003
- global.php no longer required, thus when signature image is being created it no longer shows up in "who is onlne"
- quality of image output improved
- debug modus with email notification integrated
- tested with gd2

It just bothers me that I seem to have caused filburt1's unique sig to become...um...not unique. I thought it was harmless when I made myself one, but now I think that it only continued to draw more attention to the concept that way. And now this...
I hope that every hacker thinks that way now, than the great community ´vB.org dies on that.
Yes, why sharing hacks here?? Let us stop this now.
Every hack should be unique...

Sorry N!ck but thats childish

Kars

If someone asks you not to give out their code, you should respect their wishes. All N!ck was doing was confirming for filburt that he did not give out his code. Same here, N!ck, I did not release that code to anyone.. more than a few asked and I said please check with N!ck as it's his and he has given my code the same respect.

It's not a big deal.. it doesn't take a brain surgeon to write the hack, but it was a great original idea-- credit to filburt.

Cheers~

I've tried to install this but i can't set a cronjob although i have permission to do it. I use Putty to connect but the line of code to make a cron is not enough it seems. How to proceed from scratch in Putty to set this cronjob?

ahaha yea, now we're not only dependent on vB.org's server response but everyone else's.

I don't have mine cronned yet.. just run the php script every once in a while. Won't be instant updates but no big deal.

You could also do something like this at the top of global:


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

About once in every 500 page views, it will update the signature stats. Or you can attach "&updatesigstats=on" to any URL and have it run the script as well.

Can someone send me the code to make this do:

Just gather the amount of posts in only one forum for one user?

*example: I want a sig to let people know how many posts are in my news forum just by me.

Good hack, but the Cron job does not work, yet if I run it manually it is fine.

Can anybody confirm if they have it running via a Cron job and also if they modified the code?

Thanks.

Ok, so it must be my setup.

Did you have to give any additional permissions to the .php to run as a Cron and could you tell me what directory you put it in please?

Currently mine is running in /forums/ and works when manually executed but not as a Cron job. However I have other Cron jobs setup and working such as ones for Hivemail.

Thanks.
