* CREATE A BACKUP OF YOUR FORUM AND DATABASE BEFORE INSTALLING !

I've had quite a few PM's in regards to this and seeing as how once upon a time I administered a gaming tournament forum it came in handy... we had virtual armies in battlefield games with Generals, LtCol's, Captains, squads of 6 and enjoyed a rank structure along with our awards so we converted the Awards mod into a Ranks mod, many also had a need for it and now we have it for 4.x. This is a complete re-write of the 4.x Yet Another Awards System by CypherSTL and Xanlamin ( http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=232684 ) with updates including one fix by another community member for the profile tabs (noted in Changelog.txt). I hope everyone enjoys it who finds a use for it .

DESCRIPTION:
This is a Medals/Ranks system. Admin can give members ranks, and rank icons will be displayed in member's profile, posts, as well as in a rank list.

FEATURES:

In AdminCP
  • Can Create/Edit/Delete/Reorder categories/sub-categories in ACP (with category name and description)
  • Can Create/Edit/Delete ranks in ACP (with Rank Name, Description, Icon URL, Image URL)
  • Can Move one (or all) rank(s) from one category to another
  • Can set some ranks un-classified (not displayed for public)
  • Can re-order ranks in ranks showcase
  • Issue ranks to members, based on username or userid, with Issue Reason
  • Remove ranks from members

In ModCP
  • Issue ranks to members, based on username or userid, with Issue Reason
  • Remove ranks from members

Front page & other
  • Display ranks list in with: Rank Name, Description, Icon, Image, and Members who get each rank.
  • Display ranks showcase in profile, with Rank information, Issue time and reason
  • Display rank icons in postbit (showthread, showpost, announcement, private)
  • Separate Rank Request/Recommendation Forms
  • CSS Customizable
  • Points System *Requires MySQL 5.0+


Attention:

If you do not properly setup this modification you will see errors such as:

I am getting this error when i recommend or issue rank request?

how to fix it ?
Basically here's the short on this:
  • Edit your usergroups, for each usergroup set whether they can request and recommend ranks.
  • Setup the mod options in AdminCP > Ranks System > Rank System Settings.
  • If your having the requests or recommendations posted as a New Thread OR New Post within a existing thread please ensure that the members usergroup has permission to do so, in other words they can't post a new rank request into a private admin-only forum or a new post in a admin only thread correct? Bingo . You can create a new forum and only allow viewing to normal members .
  • If your having users requesting ranks every min or two, adjust your minimum time between posts to be one minute.
  • Try disabling the Points System, do you still have a issue?

Other issues:
  • What is the minimum version of MySQL Required?
    - The core of the ranks sytem will function on MySQL 4.1. However, in order to use the Points System you must be running at least MySQL 5.0+
  • I'm seeing output like "-- BEGIN TEMPLATE: ranks_rankusers_bit -->" before it displays members. Why?
    In your AdminCP > Settings > Options > General Settings > Add Template Name in HTML Comments = OFF
  • Styling issues? - http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showp...58&postcount=2
  • If you have any other issues, post them however I need to know if this was the 2nd, 3rd or 4th request, what was done before the error and if issuing to another user worked afterwords! Thanks!

For all people having problems with installing the mod (SQL Errors), open up the xml file and search and replace:
TYPE=MyISAM
to
ENGINE=MyISAM

This has to do with MySQL compatibility, the newer MySQL versions DO NOT support TYPE= anymore.

@TheLastSuperman: Please include this in a future update

Thanks, good mod!

You've set the permissions correctly for Admins and the usergroup the member is in as well correct? Was this your first, second or third request? What's your minimum time between post set as? Is a member requesting a rank when you have it set to create a new thread or post... is that in a admin only forum? If so then make a new area and only allow normal users to view and not make new post this way no permission issues come up when their userid is used to generate the new thread or post .

Ensure you have all the usergroup options set correctly and it's setup in admincp how you wish. If your not on MySQL 5+ then don't enable the points system and everything should work fine.

That can be done by changing the language phrase/s.

You can edit the .xml however if your not experienced doing so it will be better to install, now go to the admincp and search in the phrases i.e.

AdminCP > Languages and Phrases > Phrase Manager

Now search for award or in the top right change the # to show from 15 to 1500 and now you can scroll all the phrases on one page, scroll down until you find those titled award this or that and have at it! .

AdminCP > Rank System > Ranks Manager > Now beside the rank in question under "controls" on the right, click the underlined "[Give rank to user]" link > Now when the new page loads in admincp you can view a list of who has been assigned that particular rank at the bottom of the page, find the user and under "Controls" on the right click "Remove" then verify that you do want to remove and done .

Hi my ranks are not showing up in the profile tab (like my awards are). Also, there is a extra tab floating around but I think that is from your awards MOD... guess I need to ask over that about that bit.
