Nyquist, I understand why you chose to use images in the mod's logic, and I dunno if I'm alone in this, but I use rank titles in preference to rank images (so my ranks didn't show unless I modified the mod's functions to use titles as well). I dunno if its too late now since you're submitting it to the modDB, but is there any chance in a future version to get some kind of control that defines if a rank is used in the multiple ranks list or not other than the intrinsic nature of the rank?

Despite this, a great mod. Thank you! :)

Edited all files.
Uploaded the other Files.
Added & activated the Module in acp.

but it didnt change anything its still the same as before. it doesnt show more than the normal rank like before.

Does this Mod still work? Or can someone help fixing my problem?


thanks
you probably need to go to the ACP, open the "Nyquist Show Groups Info" tab and click on the "inherit" radio. Apply the changes and you should see the groups ranks together with the personal rank.

LB I am thinking about this. Let me tell you why the MOD is made this way. In my mind when I install a new MOD I am happy if I have an easy way to uninstall/delete it, in case in the future I want to. This is the reason for you have a system module where you can disable the entire MOD and forget about it. In order to control if a group rank image (or title) is used in the multiple ranks list or not I need to change the SQL schema. This means that the uninstall/erase of the MOD will not be harmless anymore :) .
However I myself am facing the need of a more complex way to manage multiple ranks so it is possible that the next version will include this capability (and will require a change to the DB schema).

Hi, great mod however an issue (sorry if they have been answered before):

:arrow: Some people don't have the postcount rank showing - these people are all part of the same user group: "gryffindor". Is showing postcount rank for everyone within the confines of the modification?

Okay, I think this is a fantastic mod and dearly want to get this working.

I have done everything required but still only get one rank showing :cry: :cry:

What takes priority, Ranks or groups.

I'm a bit of a noob to phpBB so any help with the correct setting would be appreciated. Options have been set to 7 ranks and "INHERIT" - hope this is correct :?: :?:

Edit: It works :D :D :D :D - wel sorta. Cleared the cache! I only get 3 ranks showing up one below the other - some users have 5 ranks and the setting is currently at 7

Any help why only 3????

Hi there,
sorry for the late responses, but the work has been wild in these last two months.

It seems to me that these users are not anymore in the "registered users" group, that is the one which has postcount rank. To solve the issue:
  1. enable inheriting of groups (choose the "inherit" option in the ACP)
  2. put these users in the "registered users" group
  3. disable the inheriting (choose the "do not inherit" option in the ACP)
  4. put these users in all the other groups as needed

Indeed there is no reason to get only 3 ranks showing. On my forum I go over that. Just note that only ranks having images are shown. So if a user is member of a group whichs rank has no picture you won't see anything. If this is not the problem, please send me some more details. Also send me the link to your forum (also in PM if you prefer) and I'll check it out.

EDIT: I have seen just now that you set inherit in the ACP. When you do so changing the default group means loosing the initial one (registered users) and you don't want to do this. choose "do not inherit in the ACP ;)

Is there another way because I have to many members and groups to be doing that?

Atm we all have our ranks showing, however those in groups other than registered users arnt getting the post count rank images? Just all there group rank images.

Any help appreciated.

I'm really sorry, but I should make a script to do this repeatedly on a number of users. I would tell you I will send you such script ASAP but I really don't know how much time it might take. So, for the moment, there is not another way.

Would it be difficult to also allow the image to show when viewing the memberlist?

I don't know if I'm alone in this, but I can't, for the life of me, find the line

Code: Select all

remove_default_rank($group_id, $user_ary);
in functions_user.php

the problem is mainly in appearance. You can have several group images per user and placing them in the list might require a "style guru". of course some coding is necessary but it is not going to be added untill the first release of the MOD, sorry ;)

Poo. :( I am only using one small image and it'd go perfectly next to the username. I don't need the memberlist_body.html edits, just the memberlist.php edits. *waits impatiently* ;)
