This thread is in the Modification Graveyard.
vB Version: 3.5.0 Rating: (2 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 83
Released: 29 Sep 2005 Last Update: 06 Nov 2005 Downloads: 18
Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Template Edits Additional Files  

If Upgrading from version 1.1, upload all of the files in the Zip, making sure that they overwrite the old ones, then install the product XML.

If upgrading from version 1.0, please follow the instructions in the install guide in the Zip file.

Changelog
Version 1.2
  • Clicking "Cancel" on the extra text prompt means that the PM will not be sent
  • Adding an option to display a confirmation popup when the PM has been sent
  • Fixed a bug with usergroup permission checking (thanks Osmosis)
Version 1.1
  • Added a global on/off switch for vBPunch
  • Added the ability to add/remove reputation points when punching
  • Added usergroup permissions - you can now choose which usergroups are allowed to use vBPunch
  • Now includes 3 "Punch User" images as well as the text link
What is vBPunch?
vBPunch is a quick way of sending a warning PM to a user, based on a post they have made.
It adds a link to the postbit called "Punch User". When an admin clicks this, vBPunch pops up a textbox letting the admin type a reason (if they wish, it's optional), then it sends the user a PM.

What makes vBPunch so special then???!?
The useful thing about vBPunch is that it does it all in the backgorund using Ajax. That means, no popup windows, no page refreshes, nothing. All the admin does is click the "Punch User" link, enter a reason if needed, then continues reading the thread / post, without being interupted.

Installation
Please read install.html located in the zip file

Un-installation
Please read install.html located in the zip file. Please ensure that you delete the uploaded files, before un-installing the product in the vBulletin AdminCP, otherwise you will recieve errors when you edit a usergroup.

-----------------------------------------------------------------

Important: Unfortunately, my leased vBulletin licence has now expired, and I won't be renewing it until September which means I will be unable to reply to this thread, or update this mod until then. I'm hopeful that the great vBulletin.org community will step in to answer any questions in my absence though See you all in early September!

Forgot to mention, vBPunch uses 4 phrases, all in the GLOBAL section, and all begining with vbpunch_ so they should be easy to find.

The PM message that is sent is vbpunch_warning_text if you wish to change it

lol This is awesome. I think my forum would actually really like to do this to each other. LOL

How would I go about making it so different usergroups can punch someone?

yes in the plugin vBPunch : Template conditional checks change this line:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

To:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

just add the usergroups you want to the array.

Also edit vbpunch.php on line 25:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

With this:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

Wow this could be a great basis for someone to use to rewrite the vbpager system with.

Using AJAX for that would be awesome too.

Nice work Alan! , I may use this code a lil differently but it's definately extremely useful

LMAO...This is why I love this Community. Because even in jest we can produce some good stuff.

Awesome work.

Hey, if I change some of the Phrases can I make it a positive thing...like "The Admin" kisses (pulling name out of a hat) amykhar in the lips". or something like that?

Also, it would be a cool addon if this added or took away rep points.


BTW: INSTALLED!!!

I like that addition, however, I rather moved it on the bottom of the post rather on the top ... I guess a button would be cool too rather than simple text (gonna make one soon myself).

Another idea : Instead of a link rather a drop down menu entry (Moderation) where you simply tick the post u want to punch ..

Hi Mephisto,

Changing it to a button is on my todo list, and it can be placed anywhere on the postbit, just move it about

As for the dropdown, I thought about doing this, but it would mean the admin would have to tick the post, scroll down, pick Punch from the dropdown, enter the reason, then scroll back up and carry on reading. Or, they would tick multiple posts, scroll down and pick Punch from the menu, then have to enter x amount of additional text to add to the PM's (if they wanted), and all this just seemed like a lot of hassle comapred to the 2 click system at the moment.
