That's interesting, I don't have the issue on any of the instances I'm using for testing :o

Do you have access to the Apache/PHP log file? Does it have a PHP error or warning in it?

As I said in PM:

Code: Select all

PHP Fatal error:  Call to undefined function fq\boardnotices\rules\phpbb_get_user_rank() in /home/adm46438/public_html/ext/fq/boardnotices/rules/rank.php on line 106
Problem is connected to {RANK} variable ... without {RANK} in notice all work fine.

YW! The extension is a great I really like it and it is very useful. With the offered variables seem to be very intelligent in "communication" with the user. The user's reaction is: "Hey, this announcement is directed exactly to me!" or "How forum knows that I missed some things?" :D

Great work FredQ.

If I may suggest some options:
- More {VARIABLE} :)
- X button for users who read notice - after read it they can close notice. If user close it no more that notice for that user in that session. It would be very polite.

Keep up the good work!
Regards.

Thanks! This is much appreciated.

I was planning on a dismiss button already. Well I have two features in the pipe right now:
  • Displaying more than one notice (each notice would have a "don't show more after me" configuration)
  • Dismiss a notice. The notice would reappear after a configurable number of days (configurable for each notice)
I also have a few other rules I want to implement and then the extension will be ready to be released.

New version 0.2.1: Fixed a bug when using the {RANK} variable.

Version 0.2.2:
  • Added three new rules: number of posts equals to, less than and more than
  • Added three new variables: POSTS (number of posts), GROUPID and GROUPNAME (id and name of the default group only)
By the way, got asked today if I didn't mind getting some suggestions of improvement. I sure not! Please post your suggestions (new functionality, new rules/conditions, new {variable}).

This is a fantastic extension, very useful and helpful to 'lure' members into interacting etc.

Well done! 8-)

I'm going to update to latest version as soon as I can.

Is updating just the usual case of:
Disable extension
Delete old files.
Upload new files.
Enable extension.

? :)

Yes, that's exactly the case. It's better to remove the previous files since the extension is in development and some files get moved or renamed.

I have this script I use on my different test boards (assuming you're using some flavour of Unix to host phpBB) that I run from a [phpBBroot]/packages folder:

Code: Select all

#!/bin/bash
rm boardnotices.zip
wget https://github.com/gouarfig/board-notices/archive/master.zip -O boardnotices.zip
unzip boardnotices.zip
/usr/bin/php ../bin/phpbbcli.php extension:disable fq/boardnotices
rm -rf ../ext/fq/boardnotices/*
mv board-notices-master/* ../ext/fq/boardnotices/
/usr/bin/php ../bin/phpbbcli.php extension:enable fq/boardnotices
rm -rf board-notices-master

Hi mate, just a quick question about the {ANNIVERSARY} tag...

Will it increment (Go up in value) for each year that a member has been registered?
eg: 1 year, 2 year, 3 year etc?

Yes, that's how it works 8-)

Maybe it's not too obvious, but I couldn't find a better name for this variable.
