A Support Project using the vBulletin Project Tool has been created to support this mod. Please make use of it if you can. Timely support will still be given in this thread, however, use of the project tool is appreciated because:
  1. I paid for it
  2. It makes searching for problems already asked by other users, and possibly solved, much easier than this long thread.
  3. It helps organize and manage issues for me, which will become even more useful as I release more mods.

Description:
Ever want to throw something at someone when you read a post? Now you can! Eggs, kisses, bullets, and more.

Video Demonstration Link

Special Notes:
  • Due to some complicated issues involving the coding for animated gifs, largely black eggs (like the bullethole) do not display properly. All that is required, if you make or find your own eggs, is that large black areas be converted to a dark grey or dark blue. I've already done this with the newest bullethole.gif, and as you can see it's not a big issue but I wanted to make everyone aware of it.
  • If you wish to uninstall please upgrade to the lastest version first, as older versions may not uninstall cleanly.

Upcoming 2.5 new features
  • Automatic (optional) integration with [tk] Post Notes (post note of "Username: Threw a <thing> at you." or "Username: Gave you a <thing>" etc.
  • Long promised post stats (how many times a post has been egged, etc.)

Features:
  • Fully Phrased.
  • Fully AJAX.
  • Can be configured to work with any credits system, or not use credits (default).
  • Comes configured for vbCredits (just turn on 'Enable Credits' in the admincp options).
  • Integrated with vB Optimise.
  • Manage your own egg images (enable/disable/delete/add).
  • Optionally have eggings effect user reputation.
  • Optional 'Who Egged Me' display in UserCP.
  • 'Eggs' can be cleaned away.
  • Entire avatars can be wiped clean.
  • Usergroup support for viewing, using, cleaning own and cleaning others.
  • Very configurable.
  • Handles animated avatars (animation stops when egged, starts again when cleaned).
  • Fully supports both GD and ImageMagick. Animated avatars do not stop in ImageMagick.
  • Optional Statistics in What's Going On.

Install:
Download the [tk] EggAvatar_2.3.4.zip file.
Unzip and upload all files in the upload directory to your forum root.
Import the product file in your admincp.
Make sure to set usergroup permissions - all are turned off by default.

Install vbAdvanced Module:
Import and configure the eggblock.xml module via vbAdvanced in your admincp.

Upgrade:
Download the [tk] EggAvatar_2.3.4.zip file.
Unzip and upload all files in the upload directory to your forum root.
Import the product file in your admincp - make sure Allow Overwrite is set to 'yes'.

2.3.3 Another attempt at fixing the pop 'eggs out of the box' issue. Probably my last for a while. Good luck, cross fingers.

I'll double check it, but I don't think that changes anything php wise.

Edit: I just changed it on my board and it had no effect on Egg Avatar.

No. It runs fine with vb Optimise. If fact, version 2.5 (the next release) actually has support for vB Optimise to reduce the number of queries and speed things up.

Run a phpinfo and make sure you see something like this:

I've confirmed php version 5.2.5,

I've confirmed that I definetily do not have GD installed, and do have imagemagik installed

Version return code is 1

Version: ImageMagick 6.4.8-9 2009-01-29 Q16 OpenMP http://www.imagemagick.org
Copyright: Copyright (C) 1999-2009 ImageMagick Studio LLC


since vbulletin support documentation implies that imagemagik is the preferred image handler, can you support it?

Yes, I will add support for ImageMagick in the 2.5 release.

I have mods/admins group set up as follows:


The problem I'm having:

Registered users can not see/ or clean an egged avatar.

If a mod eggs a mod, both mods can see it- not registered users.

If a mod eggs a user- a different mod can see the egging- not registered users.

I love the mod but I only want VIP's to use it, and Registered users "only view" the eggings until they become VIP,.....


Was this intentionally made this way, or was it just a mishap? Any way to make it so the reg users "can" view, "can" cleanothers, & "not" egg, ?? Setting it up like this makes registered users not see anything at all.....
Apologies if this has already been answered, I have a similar setup with usergroups and wanted the same feature....here's how I worked around it:

Replace the plug-in code as instructed here:

http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showp...&postcount=263

Set your usergroups that you wish to see the eggs to have permission to both throw eggs and view egged avatars.

In your postbit/postbit legacy template, wrap a conditional statement around the $eggavatar_button. Mine is as follows:

<if condition="is_member_of($bbuserinfo, 5, 6, 25)">

$eggavatar_button
</if>
So, although other usergroups can theoretically throw eggs, unless their usergroup is listed in the conditional above, the button to do so doesn't appear in their postbit.

This is a quick fix, and the author may incorporate this into their next update of what I believe is mod of the year, never mind the month .

Hope this helps anyone with the same problem.

Awesome! A clue! I run with credits, and don't have this problem, but it DOES give me some ideas as what to look at/for. Access to your board would be VERY helpful. If you are willing PM me some admin login details.

You're making my head spin

What I will say is the permissions are pretty self explanatory and should work as defined. I will be double and triple checking that they do in the upcoming 2.5 release.

If you want a permissions setup that simply does not exist in the current release, please explain it like I'm an idiot, because I'm confused.
