Mod Version: 1.02, by cheesegrits (Member) cheesegrits is offline
Developer Last Online: Nov 2011 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

This modification is in the archives.
vB Version: 3.6.8 Rating: (8 votes - 4.88 average) Installs: 18
Released: 28 Jan 2008 Last Update: 03 Feb 2008 Downloads: 105
Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Template Edits Additional Files Re-usable Code Translations Is in Beta Stage  

IMPORTANT NOTE - if you installed 1.0, please make sure you upgrade to 1.02. There was a bug in 1.0 which can cause the wrong forum to be rated.

This mod adds rating of forums. Works exactly like rating of threads. Fully phrased. No code edits. Adds one table, and two extra columns to 'forum' table. Uses datamanagers. Adds one db query.

Installation instructions are in the README.txt in the ZIP. Standard stuff - an 'upload' folder, some template edits, and a product XML install.

Simple "Top Rated Forums" CMPS modules (for versions 2 and 3) included, see README.txt for details.

Tested on vB 3.6.8 and 3.7b3, with CMPS 2.2.1 and 3.1rc2,

Don't forget to hit Install if you decide to run this. No, I'm not shooting for MoTM, I just want to be able to keep you informed about any bug fixes or new versions.

Revision History:

1) 1/27/2008 - 1.00 - initial release
2) 1/28/2008 - 1.01 - fixed tiny template edit issue to properly display tables when Forum Rating is disabled.
3) 1/28/2008 - 1.01 - added CMPS modules to ZIP.
4) 2/23/2008 - 1.02 - Added "Use Thread Rating" mode. Fixed small bug when viewing main category from anywhere other than forumdisplay.php (like index.php). Fixed "rating wrong forum" bug. Added "Sort by Rating" option. Re-organized plugin architecture.

Thanks to wtrk for the original idea.

Thanks to everyone for the kind words. Although to be honest it wasn't my idea, 'wtrk' asked me to write it as a paid mod. I had a lot of fun writing it, thought other people might get a kick out of it, and decided to release it as a vborg mod rather than charging him for it.

So kudos to 'wtrk' for the idea.

If anyone has any ideas for improvements, just post 'em and I'll see what I can do.

Make sure "Yes" is selected for the Enable Forum Rating option, in the Forum Rating options (under the main vBulletin Options section).

If you can't figure it out, and don't mind PM'ing me a temporary admin account, I'd be more than happy to check out your site and see what the problem is. I'd like to make sure this isn't some kind of booboo on my part.

I know this is pretty much an "is there gas in the tank?" kinda question, but are you sure you edited the right templates for the style you are using?

I can't offhand think of any other reason why absolutely nothing would show up if you've even vaguely got the right templates edited and that Enable Forum Rating option is set. I'd expect some kind of output, even if the table appearance was screwed up.

Even if you don't have "thread rating" enabled for any forums, it should at least show the "rating not allowed" image on FORUMHOME / FORUMDISPLAY.

Question

Great Idea, but has some Bugs in vB 3.6.7 PL1!!

1. When Rating a Forum the Rate appears Next to "Forum Tools", but when Leaving the Forum and Entering Again the Rate isnít Displayed; when trying to Vote Again says that the User has Already Voted, so the Problem is in the Display.

2. When Seeing the Forum in the List of Forums, the Rating isn't Displayed, so I think should be because of the Same Problem of Display previously Exposed.

3. The CMPS has the same Problem, and don't Display the Rated Forums nor the Rating, perhaps is related with the Previously Explained.

For Now I'll only Use it in My Test Forum and Not in my Community!!

Would be Good to hear the Experience of other Forumers with vB 3.6.7 PL1, to Confirm those Bugs, or to Explain them with an Incompatibility with another Mod Installed in my Forums!!

My Best Regards!!

inciarco - I don't have a 3.6.7pl1 server to test on right now. Could you do me a favor, look in your phpMyAdmin and see if the two columns "votenum" and "votetotal" got added to your "forum" table?

The only time I've seen this behaviour was early in testing when the installer didn't work properly for some reason, and the new "forumrating" table got created, but those two extra columns on "forum" didn't get added.
