Re: [3.2][BETA] Featured Post

BUG: If the post being featured is deleted it crashes the entire forum. Great extension, I love the concept and implementation. However, when I deleted the post that I was featuring using this extension, the entire forum crashed and gave a 1064 MySQL error. It output: ...near '' at line 3. SQL SELE...

Re: [3.2][DEV] Social Events

I appreciate the interest and support you have all shown. :D I have recreated the roadmap and adjusted the priority of certain features, hopefully allowing me to get a working Alpha version out for you all to try with most of the core functionality in place. Just been a bit busy with work as of late...

Using Breadcrumbs

Hey guys, This is likely a trivial question for some experienced extension developers, but I was wondering, how exactly can I update the breadcrumb as the user visits different pages of my extension? All of the pages are routed and generated by a controller. Only thing I've found so far is this: htt...

Re: [DEV] myInvision 3.2.0 Port

Not bad. The icons used in the statistics section on the index page are pretty low resolution for me (the shadow on the cake is also cut off). I would also suggest adding a bit more padding on the forum category titles as well. Other than that, it looks pretty good.

Writing unit tests

Hey guys, I've only covered unit testing fairly briefly so far in my Comp Sci. program, I've only done a bit with jUnit and I do not practice test-driven development at all. :lol: I wanted to start writing tests for my extensions and I was wondering if you guys had any advice on where I could get st...

AdBlocker friendly message when AdBlocker hides ads.

Please make sure this is truly friendly, none of locking the user out of the site sort of deal.

Re: How get the link for an extension?

Where do you intend to have this button? On viewforum or viewtopic? One way I can think of, you can make the button set request variables and have your event listener fetch these and then preform the database operations. For example, this code is similar to what I'm currently using for my Social Eve...

Re: Why must we append the SID to URLs?

That is usually a sign of incorrect board cookie settings within the ACP.

Why must we append the SID to URLs?

Hi guys, I've been wondering why we often need to append the session ID to our url in order to preserve the session? On my computer, the SID is often sent in the cookie and I myself do not need the SID appended. However, my friend simply cannot hold a session without having the SID sent as a paramet...

Re: Use core bbcode editor

Tell us what do you want to achieve instead, please. I'm currently using a third-party bbcode editor: https://preview.ibb.co/gGga35/editor.png But I think I would rather use the preexisting posting editor, if possible. https://preview.ibb.co/nA0JO5/editor.png Is there any easy way to do this?

Use core bbcode editor

Hey guys,

Is there an easy way to reuse and embed the core bbcode editor from the posting page in my own extension? I'd rather use the built-in editor than a third-party one.

I tried digging through some of the default templates to see if there was an easy import.

Thanks. :ugeek:

Can this display, for example, a poll from a particular topic? Or will it just display the post content?
I've never considered that idea before, I'll look into it when I get a chance. ;)
