[ABD] phpbbPoster Class

Post by SaWey » Sat Nov 17, 2007 5:59 pm

I created a class which makes it possible to post messages in a phpBB3 forum from another application.
No idea if this is the right place to post this, but I think so.

It is very easy to use, just place the class in the phpbb main directory, and include it in your script.

I use this for my mailing list (phpList) which automatically posts a new topic in my newsletter forum when an email is sent.

You can use it to:
  • create a new topic
  • post a reply
  • add a topic icon
  • set it as sticky, announcement, global or normal post
  • if sticky or announcement, set time limit
  • allow bbcode
  • allow smilies
  • allow urls
  • allow signature


The readme is included in the class.

Known bugs:
  • can't send notifications after posting message (yet)
Class Version: 1.0.0
Class Download: here
Class Support: here


Comments welcome, but I don't have a lot of time, so it could take some time before you get feedback from me.

Thought I would add, this looks like something I might be using, as I plan on using phplist :mrgreen:

Then you might want to look at the phpList site: http://forums.phplist.com/viewtopic.php?t=14907
There you have the plugin already :)

I got the link to work. I have been over at that site doing a lot of research in attempts to integrate the user table for both. I am hoping this all works out, but I had been having mySQL database problems until last week with my webhost, so I only started the install today. So anyone else interested, I will report my findings later :)

Thank you for the link, SaWey!

I'd like to be updated on your progress, as my goal is to integrate both apps. I would like to have phpList reside in the phpBB acp.

Yes, you can use the annonymous user (user id = 1) for this.

I know this thread has been sleepimg for a while, but...
I try to use the class, but keep getting an error message that no user is specified, though i am sure that I have specified it.
The class uses
if(is_array($this->user_data) && is_array($topic))
{
...................code.................
}
else
{
//no user defined, add error
array_push($this->error, "No user defined, can not post");
}
Does this mean that the class doesn´t recognize the array I send to it?
