...and ooh yeah.. users shouldnt have to thumb through 15 pages of threads to find and error on the mod when you should simply then correct it yourself in the install txt.

that is my one beef about mods..we shouldnt have to search through 50-100 pages to find out why soething is not working especially when it pertains to an error on the mod itself.

@Ptirhiik - don't take this personally, as it's not addressed to you specifically...

@newcster68 - couldn't agree with you more.

as a fairly new user of phpBB, i've run into this same problem with several MODs now and it's very annoying. i run a production site and i have better things to do than read through 100+ pg MOD topics to correct issues that should have been corrected by the MOD author as an update. obviously the MOD dev's are under no obligation to maintain their MODs, and that's fine. however it is my opinion that the phpBB team ought to have some sort of policy in place that requires MOD dev's, at the very minimum, to clearly state what version of phpBB their MOD was tested with and make darn sure that it works with a vanilla install of the phpBB version for which it was developed. this info should be included in the MOD database search results, as well as in the install script(s). i think that 100, even 200+ pages being returned for MOD support ought to bolster my opinion.

and i really have trouble grasping why an author will waste their time fiddling around with multiple support requests for the same issue rather than simply updating the script! especially when it's simple syntax issues.

i realize that it's unrealistic to ask dev's to keep their work updated to be complaint with the latest phpBB version, and i'm not suggesting that at all. however i don't think it's unrealistic to require the dev's to fix glaring bugs, such as syntax errors, etc., with the penality being their MOD getting dropped from the database if they don't.

i also think that all MODs should be updated to be EM complaint because, at the very least, EM does some error checking and more could be implemented. this could eliminate/reduce the possibility of users simply copying and pasting errors, or creating new ones, when doing a manual install. less errors = less 100+ pg support topics.

regarding EM, i wonder if it's not possible to integrate MODs differently? at this point, EM injects all the code directly into the original files (as well as copying new ones). i wonder if it would be possible for EM to inject nothing more than something like "include begin: [mod id]" and "include end: [mod id]". this could potentially have several benefits:

1) you wouldn't have to uninstall MODs in reverse order to get at the one you actually want to uninstall because EM could just remove the include begin/end, mod id statements for a particular MOD.

2) you could potentially use EM to reorder the include statements if multiple statements for multiple MODs are right next to each other.

3) if multiple MODs modify the same line of code, it becomes trivial to disable any or all of them with EM without having to manually copy files.

4) all MOD code would be stored in separate files and called with the include statements leaving the original files in tact, except for the include statements of course.

5) the drain on the phpBB team and MOD dev's could be greatly reduced.

Making Post Icons EM 0.3.0 Compatible and...

Post by A.T.O.M. » Tue May 16, 2006 6:02 am

I'm pretty new to phpBB and i know very little about PHP and even less about SQL, but i was determined to make this MOD 1) work and 2) work with EM !!!

Code: Select all

//// to make 'Post Icons' v1.0.1 MOD compatible with EasyMOD 0.3.0 ////

// this fixes some other problems as well, even if you're not using EM...

// tested with EM 0.3.0 and phpBB 2.0.20, but i'm tellin' ya right now, you're
// on your own! :)

// 'lang_extend_post_icons.php' - going by the install scripts in this package,
// it is unclear what is to be done with this file or if it's even needed. by
// default it is copied ONLY if you run the 'MOD-post_icons-upgrade_to_v101.txt'
// script. since we are installing the 1.0.1 version in the first place using
// 'MOD-post_icons-part1.txt' and 'MOD-post_icons-part2.txt', then one would
// think that we don't need to run the upgrade script (can't upgrade from 1.0.1
// to 1.0.1, can we?). so it may be likely that you'll ignore this file
// completely, as apparently several people have. in reality however, it IS
// needed and not copying it is what is causing missing text in the admin CP
// when you try to edit icons. it also causes a problem in the admin CP in the
// 'configuration+' > 'post icons' section.

//// SECTION 1 ////

// in: MOD-post_icons-part1.txt

// after the SQL section, add:

#
#-----[ COPY ]------------------------------------------------
#
copy lang_extend_post_icons.php to language/lang_english/lang_extend_post_icons.php

// change:

copy lang_settings/lang_extend_mac.php to includes/lang_extend_mac.php

// to:

copy mod-lang_settings/lang_extend_mac.php to includes/lang_extend_mac.php

// change:

		}

		if ( empty($template) )
		
// to:

		}

		if ( empty($template) || empty($theme) )

// change:

  $select_sql = ( !$submit ) ? ", t.topic_title,

// to:

  $select_sql = (!$submit) ? ', t.topic_title,

//// SECTION 2 ////

// this section applicable only if Profile Control Panel is NOT installed!

// in: MOD-mods_settings-users_choices.txt

// move file:

/mod-mods_settings/MOD-mods_settings-users_choices.txt

// to:

/mod-post_icons-101/MOD-mods_settings-users_choices.txt


// (in other words, put it in the root so EM will see it)

// change:

copy profile_options.php to profile_options.php
copy profile_options_body.tpl to templates/subSilver/profile_options_body.tpl

// to:

copy mod-mod_settings/profile_options.php to profile_options.php
copy mod-mod_settings/profile_options_body.tpl to templates/subSilver/profile_options_body.tpl

// don't forget to CHMOD 666 '/includes/def_icons.php'

//// THE END ////

// there are additional changes that have to be made in
// 'MOD-post_icons-upgrade_to_v101.txt' if you're upgrading, but you're not!
// right? right!

Can someone help me to get the icons in the related topics part.
See Related topics-Mod

The modification of viewtopic_related_body.tpl similar to viewtopic_body.tpl (part 2 of Topics Icons-Mod - I don't use Split Topic) is clear.

The only second new file in this mod is includes/functions_related.php
What parts of Post Icons-Mod I have to move to this file and how?

EDIT: Solved, trasferred the code from viewforum.php (part 2) to functions_related.php

Make sure you have edited the

viewforum_body.tpl
viewforum.php


Correctly! (MOD-post_icons-part2.txt)

depending wich icon they have?

Diplay post outside of forum

Post by LoganSix » Tue Aug 08, 2006 12:56 pm

I need to display a summary of a few posts outside of the forum.
I would like to include the post icon with the post.
What is the minimum code needed to do this?

I am getting the post icon number from the database and displaying it with the rest of the information I need. However, the number points to an array on the icon_def.php file. I included that file. What do I need to do to display the icon instead of the array number?

Thanks in advance for the help.

Whenever I post a new thread with a post icon, the icon does not show up in the second column (the column where the icon should be, the column between the column with the thread name and the column with the "no new posts" image. I have no idea where I could fix this at, any help?

See the an example of the problem here.


I'm having the same problem how did you fix this?

Or anyone else please help?
