The Encheferizer

Product
: Encheferizer 1.05
Author: Hugh Messenger (cheesegrits)
Support: On this thread only
Tested on: vBulletin 3.6.0 through 3.6.4
Average Install Time: 30 seconds

Summary

Do you have some troublesome users you want to punish but don't want to ban them just yet? Or maybe play a practical joke on some of your users? Or just have some good old fashioned Swedish Chef Fun? Then this is the mod for you.

What it Does

Displays all posts from a configurable list of UserID's and / or in ForumID's in "mock swedish". You don't have to have seen the Swedish Chef from the Muppet Show, but it sure would make a lot more sense if you have, Bork Bork Bork!

Individual encheferized users see their posts as usual:

Attachment 57831

Everyone else sees them like this:

Attachment 57830

Encheferized forums are "translated" in entirety - posts, titles, descriptions and all. Encheferized posts are NOT altered in the database, they are encheferized on the fly during template evaluation. So when you've had your fun, you just remove ID's from the list and things will go back to normal.

There are some options to control how victims see their own and other victims posts, see the ACP Encheferizer options for details (under the main vBulletin settings list). As of v1.03, the Encheferizer supports bbcode, smilies, IMG's and URL's.

Why?

Good question. Well, apart from just being funny as all get out, I wrote this for a friend who has some very persistant troublemakers on his forum. It turns out that Encheferization is a remarkably good tool for controlling Bad Boyz & Gurlz. It has a way of focusing peer pressure, creates much confusion amongst the Encheferized, and much hilarity for everyone else. Best of all, it renders the Encheferized unable to properly vent their spleen - after all, who can take threats of violence and foul language seriously when it is rendered in mock swedish?

And of course, having an enchererized forum on your board is just good old fashioned family fun!

Installation
  1. Copy bb_encheferizer.php to ./includes in your forum root.
  2. Import the product XML from your ACP Product Manager.
  3. Don't forget to hit the install button on this page. No, I'm not bucking for HOTM, I just want to be able to let you know about any updates!
Configuration
  1. Find the Encheferizer under the vBulletin Settings menu in your ACP.
  2. Enter a comma separated list of userids and/or forumids you want to encheferize.
  3. Light blue touch paper and stand well clear.
Upgrading
  1. Copy the new bb_encheferizer.php to your forum ./includes folder. If you are upgrading from 1.02 or earlier delete the old encheferizer.php.
  2. Re-import the product XML, remembering to set Overwrite to Yes.
Uninstallation
  1. Uninstall the product from the ACP Product Manager.
  2. Delete the ./includes/encheferizer.php and/or bb_encheferizer.php file(s).
Change History
  • 1.05 Fixed forum description and guest posting bugs.
  • 1.04 Fixed post caching bug. Fixed PM title bug (thanks Adrian). Improved bbcode support to prevent "[escaping the chef]".
  • 1.03 Added support for bbcode, smilies, IMG's and URL's.
  • 1.02 Added forum encheferization and "Victims See As" options.
  • 1.01 Changed version and ZIP numbering to match vborg version checking.
  • 1.0.1 Added thread and post title encheferizing, input validation on userid list
  • 1.0.0 Original release
Thanks

Major props to Erik Bakker for the original encheferizer.php port.

Thanks to SirAdrian for putting up with my dumb questions.

Productizing made easy using the Advanced Product Manager by mtha.


With Apologies To

The Swedish Chef. Bork Bork Bork!


Enjoy!

Good!

But it did give me an idea to add an "Encheferize Victims PM's" option, LOL!

I just noticed I never responded to this one, my apologies.

I'll see if I can work this in as an option.

Installed.

Found a bug.

It also changes the forum category description to the Swedish Chef language.

Here is an example:

http://xlforum.net/vbportal/forums/s...d.php?p=593684 Encheferizered user

http://xlforum.net/vbportal/forums/s...ad.php?t=44561 unEncheferizer user

See how the forum category description is changed also?

On my board unregistered posters are moderated. I just noticed that all of their posts have been Encheferizerized. Have I set something up incorrectly?

I had to disable the hack to get their posts to display normally...

Hmmm, that's a new one. I'll fix that ASAP. My apologies, and watch this space. Or make sure you pressed the install button, so you'll get the upgrade announcement by mail.

That's not a bug, that's entirely deliberate.

When you encheferize a forum, it encheferizes the WHOLE forum ... forum title, description, browser page title, even the breadcrumb link. It also changes the title on foromhome. The only thing I wasn't able to change was the title of the last post on forumhome, as there is no hook in that area of the code.

If this behaviour bugs you, let me know and I'll add an option to turn that off. But IMHO, if you are are going to encheferize a forum ... then you might as well go all the way, LOL! It's all part of the fun.

Hmmm. On rereading your post, I think I misunderstood. I'll go and try it on one of my boards. The title, description etc. should only change in encheferized forums, not in normal forums when viewing an enchef'ed post. I think I know what I may have done.

Thanks for the feedback. I'll test this and get it fixed ASAP.

As usual, you can always just turn the product off till I come up with the fix if that "feature" is bugging you ... and of course none of the enchefing is permanent.

I'll release a 1.05 with this fix in it as soon as I fix the moderated post thing cherylferraro noticed. For now, if you want you can edit your "Encheferizer - showthread title" plugin, and replace the PHP code with this version:

I think I have a fix for this. It's a little hard for me to be sure, as I'm on the road and don't have access to my actual test server ... so I'm having to (very carefully!) test it on a couple of live servers.

[Edit - I just got into my test board, and this fix works for me just fine. I set guests to be moderated, posted, approved, posts show up normally.]

Could you try this. Find your "Encheferizer - main postbit", and replace the PHP with the following. There's actually only one small change, but it's easier to just copy & paste the whole thing in there:


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

Let me know if this fixes your problem, and I'll wrap this and another change up and release 1.05.

Uploaded the 1.05 ZIP, which just includes the above two fixes (forum description and guest posting bugs).

Is there a way to set it so that a chefed user sees ALL posts on ALL forums as chefed, but everyone else sees them normally?
