[BETA] The TRI FORCE (Username Color / User Level / ModCP)

Post by Famitsu » Wed Jun 23, 2004 11:49 pm

What is the "Tri Force ?

It's just the compilation of 3 of my Mods for phpBB2 (2.0.11)
includes:
- Username Color Mod MOD Validated (Final version)
- User Level Mod new (Beta)
- Moderator Control Panel MOD Validated (Final version)

[ see below for updates/latest versions ]


What is the main rule ?
Simply, add username in color for users with a level (ADMIN, MOD) but also add 2 new levels (more if needed) SUPPORT (for Support Team) and BOT (for bot) with their own color
These usernames are displayed everywhere (whoisonline, index, viewtopic, memberlist, viewprofile....)
Coupled with the ModCP (only available for MOD level) you have a similar Mod like Color Groups + Junior Admin

Why develop an existing Mod ?
Some of you have never tested how works Color Groups or Jr Admin ? :?
You should :wink:

First where Color Groups adds username in color like Username Color Mod, it increases x2 your queries on index page, where Username Color Mod adds 0 query
in my tests (same forum, same mods, phpBB 2.0.8 + a cache system)
Color Groups: 25-32 queries on index
Username Color: 10-12 queries on index
nomore to say about this 1st step

Second, with User Level Mod, you have a method for how to add new levels
Introduced the same authenticate/forum permissions as MOD
That would say, you could edit forum permissions for this level (can EDIT, POST, POLL, STICKY, etc...) without using PRIVATE level
These levels are displayed in the whoisonline block with a link to level_list page (list all users with a level)
like this:
Who is online ?
[ Administrator ] [ Main Moderator ] [ Moderator ] [ Support Team ] [ V.I.P ] [ Bot ] [ Register User ]

Demo screenshots:
- index
- level list
- admin_style
- admin_ug_auth
- admin_forumauth (1)
- admin_forumauth (2)

Same as Username Color, it adds 0 query :wink:


Third, the Moderator CP created by Niels and optimized by me :)
This control panel allows your moderators to have access to a fully moderator panel (a little admin)
- Added user_ban control for Mods (they couldn't ban ADMIN)
- Mods cannot edit ADMIN or others MODs profile
- Mods cannot delete users account (only disable account)
- Fixed online status for a more real online status (modcp/index.php)
- Added Username Color by default (modcp/index.php)
- Disable Database size stat for Mods (modcp/index.php)
MODs (by default) can:
o Disallow username
o Mass email
o Edit ranks
o Edit smilies
o Ban users (unabled to ban ADMIN)
o Edit users profile (unabled to edit ADMIN or others MODs)
o Words censor
o ... and evevrything you want (not forum permissions otherwise you have a second admin lol)
instead of the Super Moderator or the Junior Admin, with the ModCP your moderators can't ban you (ADMIN) or edit your account
ADMIN is protected against mess made by moderators :)
ADMIN can enable/disable each module via AdminCP
-> you (as admin) can enable/disable modules, for example if you don't want your moderators can edit users profile, go to your AdminCP -> ModeratorCP -> Configuration and choose the right setting :)

okay good job but just one question. You know is this going to be like nivisecs colour group mod that you have to add the people everytime in a group or automatically. i would prefer automatically like the autogroup mod and then you just put the person in a certain group if you want to.

For that it would implement a new function for usergroup system :roll:

Currently for User Level Mod, you have to add your user one by one in the Users Admin Permissions with a drop down menu

And for now User Level Mod is released and is the Second part of the TRI FORCE
See above for demo and download link

Third part will arrive soon :)

OK Project done at 100%

it's time to release the third and final part of the TRI FORCE
The Moderator Control Panel is available (see above) and is fully compatible with phpBB 2.0.8
Works like a charm and fixed some of old bugs (in past version)
Report any error with it :)

if your bot has his own account, you can set his permissions and choose his level to "Bot" (with User Level Mod)
to display his username color everywhre, you have to use Username Color too :)

Cool mod. My question is, can you change the name of SUPPORT TEAM to supermod or something else? And, the MocCP, can u give access to anything, like add ons such as the CASH ADMIN filed of the ACP?

Thanks

Read instructions and apply them

Yep, you can change the name "Support Team" in your lang_main and lang_admin, but a Support Team level is under MOD level
level rank is: ADMIN -> MOD -> SUPPORT (TEAM) -> BOT -> REGISTER -> ANONYMOUS

About adding other mods to allow your Moderators to use some new functions, you can
read the file called FAQ.txt
i explain how to add others modules

Hey, I just installed the USER LEVEL mod with EASYMOD.

I ran the sql, then installed it, but i get this error on my board index.

Parse error: parse error, unexpected '=' in /usr/home/mrsexy/public_html/forum/language/lang_english/lang_main.php on line 1026

HERE ARE LINES 1026 through the end of LANG_MAIN.php:

Code: Select all

// Start add - User Level Mod
 = 'Legend';
$lang['User_online_color'] = '%sUser%s';
$lang['Support_online_color'] = '%sSupport Team%s';
$lang['Bot_online_color'] = '%sBot%s';
// End add - User Level Mod
?>
