[MODDB] Topic Multi-Moderation

Postby imkingdavid » 29 Aug 2009, 01:16

NOTE: If you are running RC7, you DO NOT need to run the update. The only change between RC7 and the 1.0.0 release is the version number.

As this MOD has been released into the MOD Database, this topic is now closed. Further minor version releases and bug fixes will be released as needed, but no new features will be added to the 1.0.x branch unless I deem them urgent.

The next planned version of this MOD is 1.1.0. I will begin a new topic for it once development has begun.

Topic Multi-Moderation and Topic Prefixes 1.0.0 Gold
Codename: Triton

Official Support Forum

Changes from RC6 to RC7/Gold:
[fix] some nitpicky validation stuff
[fix] incompatibility with ultimate points system fixed
[fix] prefixes are now copied when a topic is copied using a multimod
[fix] post auto-reply as another user
[fix] error about class being redeclared for some people
[new] utilize native admin and moderator log system
[change] lock option now toggles between locked/unlocked based on topics current status, instead of only locking it
[change] sticky option now allows you to change a topic to sticky, announcement, or global announcement.
[change] allows entry of username or userid in the ACP module, instead of just userid
[change] using native phpBB javascript method dE() to hide un-needed fields in the multi-mod add/edit page of the ACP (thanks Arkshine)

Author's Notes::
This MOD is NOT compatible with any other similar MODs (i.e. topic prefix or multi-moderation MODs), and there is no easy way to convert from them to this MOD. It might be easier to uninstall the other MOD completely (including file edits AND SQL/Modules/Permissions) and then install this MOD.

Modification Description: This MOD adds two new major features, which may be used separately or in conjunction with each other. The first is multi-moderation. What is it? Quite simply, it is a feature that allows moderators to perform a set of multiple pre-defined moderation tasks (such as locking and sticking a topic) in significantly less steps. These "multi-mods" can be configured in the ACP and can be restricted by group and user (setting a user will allow that user to use that multi-mod regardless of the allowed groups), and can be restricted per forum.

The second major feature that is added by this MOD is the highly requested Topic Prefix. What is that? It's just what it sounds like it is: an authorized user can add a prefix (or prefixes) to a topic title, which will show in forum view and topic view (and in other various places around the forum). Prefixes can be given a hex color code, and there are two allowed tokens, {USERNAME} and {DATE}, which will be replaced with the respective information when a prefix is applied.

As I mentioned earlier, prefixes can be applied by themselves when posting a new topic or when editing the first post of a topic in allowed forums, or they can be applied through a multi-mod. Note that multi-mods can add prefixes to topics even if that prefix is not otherwise allowed in the specified forum, as long as the multi-mod is. Multi-mods can also be applied without specifying a prefix to add.

Modification Version:: 1.0.0 Gold (RC7 is the same)

Requirements:
  • phpBB 3.0.6 or later (not a MOD for phpBB 2.x, 3.1 or greater)
  • PHP 5+

Features:
  • Multi-Mods
    • Perform multiple moderation tasks in a single step.
    • Possible topic actions:
      • Lock
      • Sticky
      • Move
      • Copy
      • Auto-respond (text and poster set via ACP)
      • Apply prefix
  • Prefixes
    • Choose a color
    • Use a token
      • {USERNAME} is replaced with the username of the user who applied the prefix
      • {DATE} is replaced with the date (MM/DD/YYYY) on which the prefix was applied
    • Apply multiple prefixes

Modification Download: v1.0.0 Gold ~214 KB
Modification Repository: Github.com (Git Repository)

Interesting idea. What are the moderation tools that it provides?

Sorry I probably should have mentioned that. I'll edit that into my post in a second. Anyway, currently, the MOD allows for the mutli-mod:
-Lock topic
-Move topic
-Sticky topic
-Prefix topic
-Automatic Reply to topic
Prefixes can be set independently from a multi-mod, but you can set a prefix using a multi-mod by setting it up in the ACP.

Also planned for the first beta release but has not yet been implemented:
-Copy topic

I don't know if there are any other practical moderation functions that I can implement or if there are any other major features that should be added. Any suggestions?

So, you can do multiple things at the same time? Is that it?

Basically, yes. There's a drop down menu under the Post Reply button on the view topic page. It has a list of the predefined "multi-mods" that an Admin can make in the ACP and can be set per forum. If the moderator is given the use permission, he can see the dropdown and select one and apply it to that topic. All of the actions associated with that mutli-mod are applied to the topic at once. So instead of having to do three or four steps to lock, sticky, and reply to a topic, a moderator now just has to select one of the mutli-mods and click Go. :)

Alright, yes that was pretty quick, but I've released BETA 2. Since no one was recorded as downloading BETA 1 (according to phpBB's attachment download counter), I have not included any update instructions from BETA 1 to BETA 2 (and that's a good thing; there were a good number of changes!).

On a side note, I have moved to another forum for testing/download/support. To get there, just click the download link in the first post. Cheers!

Finally, this MOD has been validated into the MOD Database, more than 1 year after initial development was begun.

Version RC7 is the same as version 1.0.0. You do not HAVE to update unless you desperately wish to, if only to get the annoying message in the ACP to go away. :lol:

This topic is now closed. Please use this area for further discussion and support.

Thank you for your interest and maybe a version 1.1.0 will be next on the agenda!
