[MODDB] Topic Multi-Moderation & Topic Prefixes

Post by imkingdavid » Sat Aug 15, 2009 1:36 pm

NOTE: If you are running RC7, you DO NOT need to run the update. The only change between RC7 and the 1.0.0 release is the version number.

As this MOD has been released into the MOD Database, this topic is now closed. Further minor version releases and bug fixes will be released as needed, but no new features will be added to the 1.0.x branch unless I deem them urgent.

The next planned version of this MOD is 1.1.0. I will begin a new topic for it once development has begun.

Topic Multi-Moderation and Topic Prefixes 1.0.0 Gold
Codename: Triton

Official Support Forum

Changes from RC6 to RC7/Gold:
[fix] some nitpicky validation stuff
[fix] incompatibility with ultimate points system fixed
[fix] prefixes are now copied when a topic is copied using a multimod
[fix] post auto-reply as another user
[fix] error about class being redeclared for some people
[new] utilize native admin and moderator log system
[change] lock option now toggles between locked/unlocked based on topics current status, instead of only locking it
[change] sticky option now allows you to change a topic to sticky, announcement, or global announcement.
[change] allows entry of username or userid in the ACP module, instead of just userid
[change] using native phpBB javascript method dE() to hide un-needed fields in the multi-mod add/edit page of the ACP (thanks Arkshine)

Author: imkingdavid

Author's Notes::
This MOD is NOT compatible with any other similar MODs (i.e. topic prefix or multi-moderation MODs), and there is no easy way to convert from them to this MOD. It might be easier to uninstall the other MOD completely (including file edits AND SQL/Modules/Permissions) and then install this MOD.

Modification Description: This MOD adds two new major features, which may be used separately or in conjunction with each other. The first is multi-moderation. What is it? Quite simply, it is a feature that allows moderators to perform a set of multiple pre-defined moderation tasks (such as locking and sticking a topic) in significantly less steps. These "multi-mods" can be configured in the ACP and can be restricted by group and user (setting a user will allow that user to use that multi-mod regardless of the allowed groups), and can be restricted per forum.

The second major feature that is added by this MOD is the highly requested Topic Prefix. What is that? It's just what it sounds like it is: an authorized user can add a prefix (or prefixes) to a topic title, which will show in forum view and topic view (and in other various places around the forum). Prefixes can be given a hex color code, and there are two allowed tokens, {USERNAME} and {DATE}, which will be replaced with the respective information when a prefix is applied.

As I mentioned earlier, prefixes can be applied by themselves when posting a new topic or when editing the first post of a topic in allowed forums, or they can be applied through a multi-mod. Note that multi-mods can add prefixes to topics even if that prefix is not otherwise allowed in the specified forum, as long as the multi-mod is. Multi-mods can also be applied without specifying a prefix to add.

Modification Version:: 1.0.0 Gold (RC7 is the same)

Requirements:
  • phpBB 3.0.6 or later (not a MOD for phpBB 2.x, 3.1 or greater)
  • PHP 5+
Features:
  • Multi-Mods
    • Perform multiple moderation tasks in a single step.
    • Possible topic actions:
      • Lock
      • Sticky
      • Move
      • Copy
      • Auto-respond (text and poster set via ACP)
      • Apply prefix
  • Prefixes
    • Choose a color
    • Use a token
      • {USERNAME} is replaced with the username of the user who applied the prefix
      • {DATE} is replaced with the date (MM/DD/YYYY) on which the prefix was applied
    • Apply multiple prefixes
Modification Download: v1.0.0 Gold ~214 KB
Modification Repository: Github.com (Git Repository)

First post updated with screenshots of what I've got so far. More will be added as more is finished.

btw, is there any interest in this MOD? I see ~70 views, but only I've replied. I'm less likely to see this through to the end (at least creation of an actual MOD; I may still implement it in my own board) if no one else is interested in it.

Very very interesting and maybe the most useful mod the moderaters can get.

Thanks guys. Any ideas for features or anything?

As a status update, I currently have finished:
-Permissions (admin manage, and mod use; see screenshots)
-List multi-mods and prefixes in ACP

I am currently working on:
-Add/edit prefixes and multi-mods via ACP
-Viewtopic integration

Feature updates:
-I have decided to allow separate use of prefixes; you don't have use a multi-mod to apply a prefix to a topic title.

Anyway, I'm a bit busy with marching band for the next few weeks, so development will be slow but will hopefully move forward little by little.

As always, feel free to give suggestions or comments. :D

I have no feature requests at this moment, maybe in the future when the first version has been released. :)

Alright, thanks for the interest.

By the way, as another update, I've finished the prefixes ACP module (add, edit, delete). I have not yet figured out how to make it per forum, so that will have to be in a later release unless I figure it out soon enough. I'm now working on the multi-mod ACP module. Once that's done with, I'll do the view-topic part.

:)

Ok, here's another update:
I have, for the most part, completed both ACP modules. I may add or subtract features from it based on user feedback when alpha is released.
I am beginning work in viewtopic. Planned release of v.0.0.1[ALPHA] is this weekend, possibly Sunday, depending on how quickly I am able to develop it.

Note: The ability to limit prefixes to specified forums, limit multi-mods to specific users and/or groups, and add a customized moderator reply when applying the multi-mod have been bumped to the next release. At this point, I'm going for a functional MOD with a small amount of features.

Current planned features for 1.0.0: (bold are complete)
-Permissions: "Can use multi-mods", "Can manage multi-mods"
-ACP Modules: Prefixes, Multi-mods
-Viewtopic: (when authed) select prefix, select multi-mod; apply multi-mod action(s)
-Multi-mod actions: lock, sticky, move, copy, add prefix, add pre-made reply

Alright, so as a status update, I've gotten it to display available multi-mods on viewtopic and am working on implementing it doing the actions based on the specific multimod settings. It can currently do lock, sticky, and add reply. I'm working on figuring out how to make it move or copy a topic as well.

I aim to have an alpha up by Monday, but there's no promise. And even if I do, it's definitely not suitable for a live board. ;)

Thanks for the interest. :D

We had flooding at my church because there was a big rainstorm so I just spent the majority of my evening helping mop up and such. But that's all done, so back to coding. :D
