Cel User's Social Groups on Forum Home (like forumlist, fully templated)

vB Version: 4.x.x Rating: (32 votes - 4.69 average) Installs: 220

Not Supported Uses Plugins Template Edits Additional Files Translations  


What does it do?
  • Shows all social groups the actual user is a member of or is subscribed to, just below the forumlist (or anywhere else on forumhome).
  • If there are new messages, the corresponding forum statusicon is highlighted - just like in forumlist.
  • Instead of the statusicons, you can show the group's icon
  • If there are no groups to show, you can choose to show a teaser message.

Things to set in AdminCP/Options
:
  • use template hook to output or - more flexible - make manual template edit
  • show member of / subscribed to /nothing
  • sort by name or last message date
  • limit max number of groups shown, then link to appropriate page (grouplist for members, usercp for subscribers)
  • restrict use by usergroup
  • show a teaser message if there are no groups to show
  • show buttons to open new discussion etc.
  • apply custom css to grouptitle
  • trim group description to max length or disable
  • parse bbcode in group descriptions
  • use a different set of statusicons for groups than for forums
  • show groupicon instead of statusicon, and choose whether you want to show original size or resized to standard statusicon size

Looks
  • Out of the box: copies the standard look of the forumlist on forumhome.
  • Fully templated.

Install/upgrade
  1. Upload folder "images" to your forum root (can be omitted if you do not want to use the buttons).
  2. Import the product file.
  3. Check settings in AdminCP->Options->Social Groups on Forumhome.
Technical stuff
  • 3 templates (following the forumbit-scheme)
  • 2 plugins
  • 2 queries to forumhome (only if groups are shown, of course).
  • a bunch of phrases (prefix: cel_sgfh_).
  • 4 png-buttons, taken from the silk icon set.
Limitations
  • Marking of new messages only works with database, not with cookie based marking of read threads (-> AdminCP setting)
  • 3.7 Discussion groups will show up as "no messages yet" as long as there was no message written under a version 3.8.0 or higher

Version history
  • 4.0.006: fixed minor display bug when no discussions yet in group and fixed encoding issue reported by Been_Told
  • 4.0.005: fixed small PHP 5.3 issue
  • 4.0.004: fixed group's icon styling issues (thanks to ZexTasy for some useful hints) and added resize option, implemented suggestions (f.e. using template hook now)
  • 4.0.003: Adapted to vB4 beta 3, first public release
  • 4.0.001: Ported to vB4 alpha 1
  • previous see 3.8 versions here.
The 3.8 version of this mod can be found here.

One change I made was that I added an anchor right at the start of the list on the forum home. Then I gave my users a link to "My Groups" which drops them right to the spot where the list is.

I'm also using the group notification mod, and I set that to go to the anchor on the forum home so the user can easily see what group has a new post.

I'm having trouble with non-latin characters. Like quotation marks or cyrillic letters (see screenshot).

Any advice?

Thanks for the upgrade. It's working fine here.

Request: If this mod has an option to show random grops instead of just groups user is a member of or subscribed, it woud be great.
This way, any time, even to visitors, some groups will be show.

Got an error on upgrading
Conflict when merging template: forumhome_cel_social_groups_lastmsgby (style: 39)

Style 39 on our forum is the vB4 Default Style, so it's a little worrying seeing that. =/ Any idea what'd cause it?

EDIT: Uninstalled and reinstalled, the error vanished 2nd time around. *shrugs*

Hello,

is it possible to limit the number of groups to show? Some users are member of 50+ groups, which is a bit too much for forumhome, i think..

Amazing plugin!

Suggestion to functionality:
Ability to show all or some social groups even if not in them, allowing people to join them from the forumhome, or to preview what the groups look like, was going to try template edit it myself, but its away above my head.

Thanks again, great plugin!

Is there any way to fix this? Whether its making it work or just hiding/removing it
It just shows <span style etc etc
I have HTML Markup installed (which is what it should be doing, but it's not. Not sure if I should have posted here or there.)
And Point Market, where the glows are coming in place.
