Custom Postbit for every User
Mod Version: 1.00, by Xenon (Member) Xenon is offline
Developer Last Online: Jul 2018 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

This modification is in the archives.
vB Version: 2.2.x Rating: (1 vote - 5.00 average) Installs: 29
Released: 18 Sep 2002 Last Update: Never Downloads: 1
Not Supported  

After the one Day Beta-Version i've finished the Hack so i can release it now.

Hack Version: 1.20b

Additional Queries in showthread.php: 1

What it does: It gives users the Ability to choose between custom postbits instead of just the one global postbit (or more if you have different styles).
Also it allows users to create their own custom postbits using html-code (These must be validated by an admin before they can use them)
It also gives you the ability to create a postbit just a special usergroup or just a special user can use.

I think i've tested every little option, but if you find a bug please tell me.

Please click install if you use the hack.

Some additions:
in cpostbit.php you find this lines to allow users wether to choose a custom postbit or to create new ones:
// Usergroups which can use custom postbits
$canusecpb="2 5 7 6";
// Usergroups which can create own custom postbits
$cancreatecpb="2 5 7 6";

people who installed the beta version should run installcpb.php?action=unstall&killbeta=1 before installing the hack.


Enjoy

I'd be interested in seeing this in action on a live forum (and people's reactions to it)!

Wow..this is different than what I thought it was initially, but still looks cool. I thought it would be just like choosing other styles, but postbits for each style.

Anyway, still cool

I installed it, and all is fine but on the cpostbit.php page AND on the admin cpostbit page, the preview just shows the postbit template no matter what the postbit is. Any fix?

Hey, Like i was saying in the BETA forum. Its not a good idea unless you trust a user to know his HTML well. i mean very well.

You can trust a user not too mess it up on purpose but what happens when they completely botch a customizing job and really screw over your forums for awhile? It has nothing to do with trust people make mistakes. Maybe you should release a version of this where people can change the location and whats displayed but the HTML is SET. Its too much of a risk allowing people to do there own HTML work.


But the idea itself is a great mod to a VB... just i think its way to risky.

colon i think you didn't understand my hack....
a user cannot use a selfmade custom postbit until it has been validatet by an admin, so the risky thing is that you as an admin would oversee anything...

@Link: Are you sure you have applied the changes to functions.php correctly?
because here at my testboard everything works fine
