Thanks for post extension - rating does not appear anywhere

Post by Linuxing » Sun Jan 27, 2019 7:20 pm

I am creating a forum and I have installed this plugin https://github.com/Naguissa/thanks_for_posts but the stars do not appear in the posts, in the topics, anywhere.

I have configured the permissions that are indicated here:

https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/exte ... 2/faq/2631

And also Extensions -> Rating Options -> I activated:
Show rating for posts
Show topic rating
Show forums rating
Graphic display of the rating

I have the latest version of the forum installed

Any suggestions? Should I modify something else?

Thank you! I already did :) It seems that it is a problem of not having installed the MOD https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/mod/thanks_for_posts.

I was doing a previous work but some texts did not match Is it necessary to modify all the files that appear in the list? What to do when the line to look for is not in the file?

not sure what you are doing. are you working with an extension or a MOD. they are not the same thing.

extensions will not work in phpbb 3.0.x and MODs will not work with phpbb 3.1.x

You're right! I have understood all bad haha.

Finally after hours and hours of work, I have managed to make it work.

Apparently the problem was that the extension was not well configured with the permits and since I did not appear to vote for myself, I thought it was not functional. I created another user in the forum and tried entering from there and it works! I'm super happy.

After this I understood that a MOD and extension are different things. As I understand it, a mod is a modification made on an installation to achieve certain characteristics.

An extension is to add additional functionality without making modifications to the installation.

Have I understood it well?

Add on features used to be called MODs because people had to physically modify the existing code to install them.

Since 3.1, we have had the ability to upload extensions which require no manual coding at all and extend the code via the files you upload. So you just upload, activate and you're done.

On behalf of all the people, I thank you for this work that you have done!

It is the first time that I install a forum and I have learned a lot of phpBB :), I think it has a lot of potential!

I hope to continue learning more about it.

Thanks! thanks!
