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

hi corsacrazy,

you will only need to set up a cronjob if you want the image created automatically every 15 minutes. Its not a must. Read the instructions corsacrazy. It does not tell how to do it exactly, because that goes beyond the scope I can offer, but it tells you alternatives if you do not have access to telnet or webmin or ssh to create you own cronjob.

greets
tina

A cron job is a script that runs at periodic intervals. In this case you would set it up to call up signature.php every 15 Minutes for example.

Hi corsacrazy,
yes thanks for the info about the usergroup. I forgot to remove that. I've updated the hack just now, and yes your right of course, theoretically you can query anything you want

The white Backgroundcolor is set transparent on line 53

try replacing:

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

with:

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

then the background of the stats will remain white. or better try replacing the background color 255,255,255 with an RGB value which is not part of you sig.jpg

just a note do not directly link you image to http://www.youdomain.com/signature.php but preferably to the image created by signature.php which is located at http://www.yourdomain.com/images/signatur/signatur.jpg otherwhise the load on your server might get a bit high if you have you signature image placed in many threads in some forum.
