[MODDB] Report to topic 1.0.2

Post by Danielx64 »

Modification Name: Report to topic
Author: *Daniel

Modification Description:: This MOD enhances phpBB's reporting system by introducing a set of new features. This MOD is based on Erik's report2topic MOD.

Modification Version:: 0.1.2

Requirements: This MOD will require php 5.0.0+ phpBB 3.0.12

Features:
  • Each forum can designate another forum to hold the posted report topics for reported posts in that forum, i.e. Forum 1 can designate Forum 1 Reports as its report forum, while Forum 2 can then designate Forum 2 Reports.
  • NOTE: This is helpful for multiple reasons. For one, it ensures that users who do not have permission to view reports from a certain forum in the MCP also cannot view reports from that forum in the reports forum, as permissions can be set on the forums. Secondly, it also helps with organization so that the reports forum doesn't get overly cluttered.
  • Fully customizable report information. An admin can define which information is shown in the report topic by creating a template through the ACP, with the use of tokens the admin can add/remove certain information.

Thank you :) I found that most of it still work - not bad considering how old the code is, still need some work done but everything still look good. The github link is there so that you see what's going on.

Since it's dealing with forum permissions plus the report system I think most don't want to risk it on live site and prefer to wait for either RC or moddb release.

I myself will get a chance to test this in couple days and report back if I run into any problems.

Nice mod. Can you add a option so that we can choose our own username or other member username rather than the reporter username?

Not fully tested on that version but it should be fine.
