[ALPHA] 0.0.5 User Control Panel for phpBB 2.0.15

Post by president » Tue May 10, 2005 1:58 pm

This Mod has been updated to:
[ALPHA] 0.0.6 User Control Panel for phpBB 2.0.15

The topic for it is here:
http://www.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=290618



The old post is below this line

What is it?
This is a mod to give your users a User Control Panel including a Buddy List and Subscribed Forums.


What's New?
I have given the code a good overhaul. I believe the Mod now works with any of the DataBases which phpBB supports.

You can see a list of all changes since the begining in changelog.txt


How is it installed or Upgraded?
To install the Mod, you're gonna have to do it manually. I have yet to learn the intricacies of easyMod (I'm sure it's delightful).

The install.txt file gives all the instructions you need to install.
The upgrade from 0.0.4.txt file gives all the instructions you need to upgrade from version Alpha 0.0.4.


Where can it be downloaded?
You can download the mod here:
http://minds.may.ie/~provost/usercp0.0.5.zip

I have Demo board up here:
http://minds.may.ie/~provost/phpBB2/


What's planned for the future?
I plan on working on the following in the time to come:
- Integrate Watched Topics with Subscribed Topics.
- Dynamically checking Subscribed Forums and Topics so they are removed if you no longer have permissions on them.
- Make the Buddy System have only Mutual buddies allowed to see each other if they are hidden.
- Check all the code and template files in order to optimise them.


Be careful!
Remember this Mod is only an Alpha so you'd be taking your life into your own hands if you install it ;)


History of the Mod
Contributions to the Mod up to version 0.0.4 have been made by

Thanks to them all.

This is a new topic for the Mod and the old one is here:

All feedback is welcome.

Enjoy!

I like it! But my first comments:

Navigation at the side instead of above. But above you can do more. And when you go to Profile and Private Message the bar above will disapear and that's bad!

So here again:

1. Navigation at side (If not possible keep above).
2. Navigition on Profile & Private Message page.

EDIT: I forgot to tell that I love it cause it's not like Profile Control Panel, that has to many features and requires a lot of time to install, while this MOD is jus simple and compact.

I signed up for your demo, and I'm impressed! I was hoping a MOD that looks kinda like vBulletin would come out!

But again, I would like it to be "Subscribe to topic" rather than "Watch Topic" and you can choose to either be emailed or not for each one you subscribe to, but either way they show up in the UCP!

--EDIT--
A feature suggestion:
All announcements (marked with "Annocement:") are shown above all subscribed topics? That would be nice!

glad to see this is still being developed. pres were you aware that they had a 0.0.7 version of this mod? at least thats the last version i saw of it. I've still got it, if youd like to look at it to help development with it.

I kinda knew but I hadn't been around enough to pay much attention to it so I've gone back to what I know.

Where can I download it from? I'll see about merging the two if there is room for it.

The way I plan to integrate the Watched topics is that you will have 3 choices on the viewtopics page:

Watch Topic for Replies by Email)
Subscribe Topic to UserCP
Subscribe and Watch Topic

In your usercp you will have the options to UnWatch or UnSubscribe

I'll see if I can arrange something permanent (Where someone can't change the password after they login to the test account)

Right, I'll have a think about Navigation. Would it not just clutter up the other pages?

No, this is just a user control panel, it doesn't interact with users profiles.

The phpBB group made some perfectly fine code for doing that already ;)

I noticed how the navigation was only on the UCP part. But, since it links to the profile and the pms, would it be possible to add the navigation bar to those pages also?

Also, about my second question... the newest announcements are displayed above the subscribed topics...

The navigation bit is a question of usefulness vs clutter. It might be useful to put something into place for navigation though.

On your second point, how would you limit the announcements? There are no Global Announcements in phpBB 2.0.x and anyone can make regular announcements. Would it not cause alot of clutter?
