Stars on number of posts

Post by PCosta »

Hi everyone, this is my first post here. I've been using phpbb3 3.0.5 for some months now.

I've been searching through all the Mods, but can't really find what i'm looking for.
It seems like a pretty easy mod, but can't really find it. i apologize if it is already around.

I've seen many type of star mods, related to ranks but can't find one that increases the number of stars under the avatar area in posts, as the user increases the number of posts.

example: 50 posts half star, 100-1 star, 200/star and a half, 500 2 stars, etc.. up to 5 stars, with number of posts per star (or half star) configurable. Kindda like the "phpbb3_starranks", but related to the number of posts of the user.

Thanks for the help, and i'd like to thank PHPBB for a great board system.

That is already possible without a MOD... this is a reason you aren't seeing this MOD anywhere since it already comes with the installation of phpBB

Go to ACP
In ACP click on 'Users and Groups' tab
Once there, press on 'Manage Ranks'
Click 'Add new rank'
- Select a rank title
- select a rank image (the half star)
- Select 'No' for "Set as special rank"
- Type in '0' for "Minimum Posts"
Hit submit
Click 'Add new rank'
- Select a rank title
- select a rank image (the full star)
- Select 'No' for "Set as special rank"
- Type in '50' for "Minimum Posts"
Hit submit

And repeat the process until you got full 5 stars...

That sounds good Bogey and for once, simple to do… but where do I upload the star images too?

Thanks a lot Bogey. Pardon my ignorance, didn't know that ranks could be done that way.
Sorry to bother with something so easy ;)

By the way, the images should be uploaded to the images/ranks folder.

Thanks Guys.

I got mine from the Mod phpbb3_starranks . They have a nice set of stars from half star to 5 stars.

Hope it helps.
