Signature Guardian Version 1 / 0212

Tomorrow night will be the big update... April 29, 2005

I have been out of town so I have not had a chance to get the final version done, but it is done now. The final version will include the following...

1. Mod Panel Controls

The Admin Panel has a option for the administrator to set permissions for mods and super mods to access the following controls!

A. Can or can not remove signature bans!
B. Can or can not view or edit signatures! (only signatures that are under ban!)
C. Can or can not access the forum signature controls (threadbit, postbits)

2. Admin Panel Controls

A. Set Auto ban limits ( hour(s), day(s), week(s), month(s), forever ) [per group]
B. You now can merge permissions into multi groups (set one permission to have it be used by many groups)
C. Admin Signature Editor, (all editors, uses the one you have selected in your options)
D. Image viewer (report)
E. Turn on or Off forum signature controls! (validate signatures (by post or thread) full detailed report shown with Admin options... (what to validate)
F. domain blocking via file or database.

I have also written a 15 page help file with over 100 images that explains each control in as much detail as I could. Also Help phrases have been added throughout the Admin and Mod panel and on the threadbits and postbits controls!

That it, c ya tomorrow!

(2) mirror errors that should be corrected. MySQL 3 support

http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showt...d=1#post640036


Added MySQL support for any version of MySQL less than 4.1, including MySQL version 3, but you should update your MySQL install if you can!

Update the zip file to include both Mysql version scripts and error fixes!


The signature control is very advanced signature control and monitor! This modification will allow the administrator to take back control of all signatures on their forum. The control has over 100 key features that will allow total control of signature displaying on your forum!


The signature control allows you to switch from using vBulletin limited signature permissions, to a really advanced signature control. It does this by not ever effecting vBulletin control, allowing you to use the standard vBulletin control for some groups and use this advanced control for others!

The reason for developing this modification was to bring the complete signature control into one single Administrator Panel, so as not to have to set (bbcode rules) on one vBulletin options page, then have to set (image rules) and other signature option on many different pages! It make administering your forum much easier!

The signature control gives you many different options. Each is designed to allow you complete unlimited control of just how you want each groups to display their signatures!

Key Features...

Overrides vBulletin Signature rules
Works via groups and single users!
Group can use signatures (yes/no)
Group can view any signature (yes/no)
Enforce new rules or updated rules now! (yes/no)

Signature monitor (vB fake cron, server cron) scripts included!
Auto Ban (Soft, signature removed until revalidated)
Auto Ban (Hard, signature removed until administrator review)

Signature Admin Panel

View and remove bans on banned signatures (with full details about each ban)
Quick stats (users who are using signatures, sizes)

Signature Permissions

Document permissions

Total lines allowed
Total characters per line
Total characters for (1) single word
Total spacing allowed between lines that have content
Total characters for complete signature
Turn bad word filter on or off


Smilies permissions

Group can use smilies (yes/no)
Total smilies allowed to be used (limit rule)
A list of smilies that are not allowed (denied rule)


bbcode permissions

Each BBCODE has it's own allow rules (yes/no)
Maximum times any (1) bbcode may be reused (#)
The total combined BBCODES allowed (#)
The minimum and maximum font SIZE allowed


URL permissions

Group can have links in their signatures (yes/no)
The maximum number of links allowed (#)
The HTTP protocols that are allowed (http, https, ftp...)
Domain Link blocking (allow and denied list Or just denied list) [simple wildcard rules]


IMAGE permissions

Group can have images in their signatures (yes/no)
Inline or display as link (yes/no)
The maximum number of images allowed (#)
Validate all images not local to this domain (yes/no)
Do line break testing if images with text (yes/no)
maximum size of any (1) image
maximum height of any (1) image
maximum width of any (1) image
image extensions that are allowed!
Domain image blocking (allow and denied list Or just denied list) [simple wildcard rules]


This is the beta release of this modification! The only part that is still beta, is the Admin Panel. The front end of this control is the (100% final working version). There will be no changes to that part of the code when this is released as being (Final).

The Admin Panel still needs (ban list sorting and limiting), see the install file for when this will be added as the first of (2) updates that this modification will have before being released as final!

As it is now, you can 100% (add, update) permissions, you also (view and remove hard bans). The Signature Monitor is (100%) working including (both) versions, the vB fake cron or the real server based cron!

FIRST UPDATE DONE (sort and limit) ban list

Zip File Updated....

For those that already have downloaded this before this update, see the first post below for the update zip file

The final version will be released with in the week. I just need to add the Admin Ban Control (ban limits) ie, 1 hour, 1 day, 1 week and so on.. Also add Admin configured Ban Types, that is all part of the Admin Signature Panel that is not in the beta version. But it's not needed to run the modification, like I said before...

This control is 100% working, that includes the monitor and the forum controls and the signature permissions (configure or update). There will be no Forum Script changes from now to Final. That means './includes/signature.php' and all the other Forum related scripts will not need any editing. Only the Admin scripts will need to be overwritten, not edited!


Sonia
Hey Sonia,

I guess my question is will file edits need to be redone when the next version comes out? Or are you just changing the php files that come with this? If that's the case then I will install now! I love the idea of this, just don't want to have to rehack in a week! Please let me know, THANKS!

Lol, ive got about this same script in a 10 or so line cron script. Would basically be the same thing if I added variables for its configuration in the admin control panel.

Took about 5 or so min to code..

*sigh*

This != hotm

note:
not putting down author , great hack for those who need it.

Short of the text replacement (which is 5 lines), and the 4 variables each on 1 line.

Query is ran:
SELECT userid, signature FROM usertextfield WHERE signature <> ''

The code simply checks returned signature for string length, (how many of 3 types of bbcode I monitor are inside the signature), if any 1 violates the limit, the signature is changed with the text replacement.

Nothing I would install an entire hack to replace, maybe im just lazy..

I downloaded it, but I was very confused with the mysql part, otherwise I really love the idea, but i just cant't afford to screw up my database, something that is very possible, when I didn't understand the instructions :-S

I click install anyways and hopes that a final version with better / easier mysql instructions exists then
