[ABD] Topic Preview 0.7.1

Post by pgarvin76 » Wed Feb 27, 2008 4:26 am

MOD Title: Topic Preview
MOD Description: Hovering over topic links will show text from the first post of that topic.
MOD Version: 0.7.1

MOD Download: http://www.paulgarvin.net/code/topic_preview_0.7.1.zip

Demo Board: http://www.paulgarvin.net/forum/

I have taken over development of the mod from the previous author fryed_1. The old thread is here:
Topic Preview 0.5.4

Current Features:
  • Works in searches as well as topics.
  • Can show first or last post in preview.
  • Prosilver & Subsilver2 templates supported.
  • ACP config module with the following options:
    • Board wide on/off
    • On/off for guests
    • Allow/disallow change settings in UCP
    • Default fist or last post in preview Affects guests if enabled and all users if UCP settings are turned off.
    • Configurable character limit
  • UCP options (if enabled): on/off and first/last post
Notes:
This MOD assumes you have phpBB 3.0.2.

The Topic Preview installs OFF by default. You will need to go into the ACP and enable it. After this the MOD will still be OFF for each user if they are allowed to change settings in the UCP. Users (including yourself) will need to go into the UCP and turn it ON. I have developed a script that will query the database and enable Topic Preview for all your users. The script and instructions have been moved to the contrib directory of the MOD. Also in the contrib directory is instructions for making Topic Preview enabled by default on new user accounts. These features will be incorporated into the base version in future releases.

The JavaScript in previous versions had an issue in Internet Explorer where the preview box would sometimes "flicker" for a second and occasionally get caught under the mouse pointer preventing you from clicking on the topic link. The JavaScript code was significantly re-written to fix this issue in Version 0.7.0. I have tested the code in Internet Explorer 6 (WinXP), Internet Explorer 7 (WinXP & Vista), Firefox 2 (WinXP, Vista, Linux), Firefox 3 (WinXP), Safari 3.1 (WinXP), and Konqueror 3.5.8 (Linux). There is still one known issue in IE6. If the preview box floats over any dropdown boxes such as the sort boxes at the bottom of a topic list, the dropdown boxes will show through the preview box. This is a known bug in IE6 and hopefully most of you have migrated away from it by now.

A common issue when installing, or upgrading to version 0.7.0 or higher is the Topic Preview Text will show up as back text on a transparent background. This is because your browser is still using an old, cached, version of the CSS stylesheet. First of all if you have not refreshed you theme in the ACP please do so now. Then force your browser to download the updated stylesheet by pressing Refresh or Reload while viewing your forum index. Some users have stated that IE has taken several refreshes to update. PRoxy servers may also be at play here.

Roadmap:
  • Add the script that turns Topic Preveiw on for all users to the ACP.
  • Provide integration with NV Recent Topics.

Thanks for taking this over!!

As for your concerns about long urls, images, youtube etc... I think smilies and possibly urls are important, things like bold, italics, youtube videos, images, we could probably do without. :)

Just the text only from the first post would be ideal, similar to vBulletin.

Good mod. Too bad it's not ready for subsilver yet. I guess I'll have to be patient :D

Issue for "long urls" question:

Code: Select all

Open topic_preview.html

FIND
<div id="preview" style="display: none;">

REPLASE WITH
<div id="preview" style="display: none; overflow: hidden;">

Hey thanks. Did you try it? I was looking through the old threads and saw that there was a problem with long urls overflowing. But I haven't had the chance to test out the overflow: hidden thing yet.
