[DEV] phpBB Topsites Mod

Post by aUsTiN-Inc »

Basically ive wanted a topsites mod for awhile, one that has all the features ive wanted in one. Also one i dont have to recode & add to, to get it. So i made one. Its very easy to use, very easy to conifgure. Its ready for beta but before i do, see what people have to say thus far. There really is no need to join it, as this is more for feature requests etc...

Here is an off the top of my head feature list....

Code: Select all

-> Top x Sites stand out inside of a <th>
-> Rate Sites when users come in to the topsites from their site on a
	1-10 scale.

-> In counter: tracks how many times the link on a users site has 
	been clicked to get here.

-> Out counter: tracks how many times someone has viewed a users site
	from your topsites listing.

-> Added date: displays what day the user added their site.

-> Updated date: will keep up with the newest update time based on
	when a topsite user updates their site info.

-> Updated count: tracks how many times they update their site.

-> Force wordwrap: built in feature so people cant make descriptions
	like aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa to stretch your page.

-> Broken image: You can add an image to the topsites images directory
	to replace anyones who might not be working, so no red x's.

-> Admins can edit & delete a site from the topsites rows.

-> Admins can email topsites members from the topsites rows.

-> PM notification: If a user joins, "someone" gets a PM letting them 
	know. If a user edits a site, "someone" gets a PM letting them
	know. If an admin edits/deletes a site, "someone" gets a PM
	letting them know. -> "someone" is conifgurable by the site
	owner.

-> Sites can only be rated once per day. So kids cant flood sites with
	good nor bad ratings.

-> Tracks how many times the page has been viewed, the install date, how
	many sites are in the listing, the newest & oldest, then shows
	it all in the footer.

-> Displays a "New" image for x amount of days. Configurable by the owner.

-> Displays the Popular image after x amount of out hits. Configurable
	by the owner.

-> Order options for how to list the topsite rows based on date & hits.

-> The message under your topsites button can be changed for people who
	already have a site added & for those who dont. So you can 
	encourage new people to join & thank existing ones at the same
	time w/o the messages being seen at the same time.

-> Has a built in top 20 sites based on hits & newest 20 sites based on added date.

-> Only registered members can join (since it has to store the site info) but anyone 
	can view it.
* Edit -> Figured a link to it might be helpfull http://phpbb-portal.com/topsites.php :oops: *

the only problem i see is that only 1 vote a day?

if someone votes the must have a vaild email and to prevent flooding votes for it. it needs to tell if that user is using a proxy to cover his/her ip so they can vote again. and if someone is using a proxy they get warning that they can't vote cause of proxy detection.

Blocking proxies would be rather pointless. Many ISP's use proxies. So you would in turn be blocking alot of real people to block a few children....

Well, I was planning on making something like this (probably modifying an existing top sites script to work nice with phpBB), but it looks like there is no need to now.

I may have to install this in time. Looks great, Austin!

You can find it by clicking the "phpBB Support Site" in my signature. Try & keep support there as well if possible.

Thanks.
