please follow the readme and the template Edits in the Install file and the readme file to get it fully working.

If you download this, upload the new .xml file to your Prodcts and let it overwrite everything.
This will Fix the URL appreance AND the Box in the Request Form where it now says "Recipient User ID" instead of the old "Recipient Username" and its a bit smaller for letting you know

Hope you enjoy, file is attatched

Chrakker Out!

Any Problems, please let me know.
THIS IS FULLY WORKING WITH 3.7.5 !

INSTALL: Read INSTALL.txt

This mod was developed from the YAAS - Yet Another Awards System mod by Hancho! You can find out all about it here --> Click Here <-- Great mod, please see his listed credits so everyone who has lead up to this variation can be honored!

Developed by Kristof aka JurGradi, a recently retired administrator of Tournament Gaming World and a good friend of mine for almost a year now, He is a brilliant web guru who has surprised me at every turn with his vast knowledge of well... everything! Most certainly TheLastSuperman's.... Superman!

Install instructions and everything you need should be in the zip, read it carefully and take your time, this works and has been tested on http://www.tournamentgamingworld.com/online in several styles. Some of the guru's out there can tweak it more to suit their tastes all we ask is credit where credit is due i.e. how we listed where the idea came from.

For questions or Support please post below and I'll attempt to help you in any way I can even buggin' JurGradi on occasion however he has included an installer which I have repackaged via .zip therefor it has all the required files in the zip plus the same content in an installer form included as well so choose your method!

If you like it click install and be sure to check out the Yet Another Awards System by Hancho!

Special thanks to my friend JurGradi for his development of Yet Another Ranks System!

*The General Stars are the mod* ignore the custom image I inserted via html in the user title area... I need to remove it now lol!

Update: Uploaded YARSRANKS.zip which contains ranks for tournaments/clans/gaming sites to use with Yet Another Ranks System, themes are for Battlefield 2142 & Call of Duty 4! Special thanks to Called for the graphics!

The Rank System is a variation of the Awards System by Hancho, it will work with the Awards Mod 100% as seen in the screenshots (See the admin panel screen shot, the Awards Mod is listed below the Ranks mod!).
  • If you have any request for additional screenshots please post and I will post them ASAP.
  • If you attempt this in another version and it works correctly please post below that you have it installed and which version you are running it on.
  • APPROVED: 10.18.2008 (YARSRANKS.zip uploaded, please see update notice!) Upon approval from our Development Team Leader - If the demand is high, Tournament Gaming World will release pre-made Ranks for gaming sites related to Battlefield 2142 & Call of Duty 4.
  • Upon approval from our Development Team Leader - If the demand is high, Tournament Gaming World will release pre-made Awards for gaming sites related to Battlefield 2142 & Call of Duty 4 for use with Yet Another Awards System mod by Hancho.

Version Updates:

10/19/2008 - Updated to version 0.0.2, Optional BB Code in Install.txt IF you want to approve ranks by a simple click! this must be setup via the options with correct thread ID's etc. After setup when a member request an award it post the request to a new thread (the one you specified) and then simply click the Approve link to do so. The post will then be "soft deleted" and as for the user, check their profile .

__________________________________________

General Updates:

10/21/2008 - Updated rank.php which is located in admincp folder. Please Download "Update.0.0.2-1.zip" and install in your admincp folder - without it you will receive a DB error in your admincp which will not allow you to remove a previous rank. Once you have updated, you can remove the previous ranks with success! Sorry for the coding error and thanks for using YARS!
11/15/2008 - YARS 0.0.2 Update by TheLastSuperman!

This update includes:

- Syntax Corrections
- Update to .php files
- Update to .xml files

Hopefully this will help the 3.7.3 members who have installed but please remember it was only tested and works well with 3.7.3 RC1.

- robwestpdx
- Diniska
- Nadeemjp

Bugs:
- Possible warning in admincp when in use:
Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in [path]/admincp/rank.php on line 964

Please report ASAP if so via --> http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=194043

Possible Updates in the next 1-3 weeks:
- Define Usergroups allowed to use (grant etc)
* This option is available to users you have assigned as moderators via ModCP just not specific usergroups yet!

11/16/2008 - YARS Quick Fix and Zip Package contents correction.

Update!

Sorry about this guys, one simple mistake on my part.

In line 3 of the XML product file I used & instead of AND (habit) so it was not importing!

Fixed!

- Removed the old YARS.0.0.2.1.zip and re-uploaded the correct package w/ the same name.
- Included the YARSxml.zip which is just the product itself for those who DL'd the syntax slighted xml.

S-MAN

__________________________________________

Template Change Updates:

10/25/2008 - Updated w/ alternate code for postbit for a different display option!

Example:

In the screenshot provided, the normal way to display can be the Rank along w/ a border and title saying "Ranks Showcase" now if you want to display as just the image w/o a border as seen in the darker style screenshot - When you edit template "postbit" do not follow the normal instructions, follow these! (Or simply remove the old code version and follow info below!

oh bro i just noticed it only does it with
IE 6. Crazy thing is the majority of my
members use the old IE 6 program.

maybe if i make them .gif instead of .png?

i dont know if you have access to IE 6 to
see what im talking about.

thanks again bro! i wanna use this program
but the grey box is driving me crazy lol.

Allright! & Tell them to get on 7 for the love of.... lol I mean it's about time don't you think

I did not even expect that ...IE6... I opened up on my lunch in FF & IE7 which was almost over else I would have spent more time looking into it but just now getting home.

I'm glad you have yours fixed for your IE6 users & thanks for the info, just in case anyone else runs into it they can refer back here!
