XThreads
Author Message
My Spiel
XThreads is one of my larger plugins which I have been working on for a while.  Originally planned to release it inline with MyBB 1.6, but who knows when that'll be out.  It perhaps doesn't include everything I wanted it to, but does have most of the things (plus I want to move onto other projects).

What does it do?
Take a look at RateU's forum for some nice ideas of what it can do.  I also have some more basic examples here of what can be done with XThreads.  I'm pretty sure there are many other applications of this plugin, but those examples just give you some simple ideas.

The basic idea is giving you the ability to define custom fields for your threads, and providing methods to give you a lot of flexibility with customising forums.

Warning: I'm not going to bother with "beta" labels and so on.  I've done some testing on this myself, but it's by no means extensive.  Use this at your own risk.

Installation Instructions: standard installation procedures apply - you can find them in the announcement here.
You may need to CHMOD the uploads/xthreads_ul/ folder to 0777 after uploading the files (probably won't though).

Upgrade Instructions: unless stated otherwise, the general procedure for upgrades is to simply upload the new files, then visit your AdminCP.  In there, you'll be presented with a notice to run the upgrade - just follow what it says from there on.

Usage Instructions: this is a complex plugin, and unfortunately, you're probably going to have to figure this out yourself, depending on what you want to achieve with this plugin.  HTML and CSS knowledge is strongly recommended; you should also be familiar with MyBB's template system.  Some demonstrations can be found here - hopefully these will give you a good idea of how things work.  I suggest looking at the thread descriptions example, as this is fairly easy to understand (IMO).  If you can understand how everything works, there, perhaps try out the gallery example.

Known conflicting plugins
- MyPlaza Turbo -
If you are using MyPlaza Turbo, note that the author decided to use a particularly odd method to implement certain functionality, practically destroying compatibility with any plugin which hooks into the forum add/edit routines.  I've included a patch to address this issue - you need to replace inc/myplaza/myplaza_admin_plugin.php with the following file (it's unlikely that this will be committed as the author has decided to discontinue development)

.php  myplaza_admin_plugin.php (Size: 56.27 KB / Downloads: 1274)

- PL9 Forum Icons -
Affects certain functionality.  See here for a solution.

- PHP in Templates, v1.4 or older -
Similar to PL9 Forum Icons - solution is just to update to the latest version.

- MyAdvertisements - (update: older versions only, later versions may not conflict)
Affects some thread functionality, see here for a solution.

- Group Post CSS -
See here http://mybbhacks.zingaburga.com/showthre...17#pid5917

All bug reports, suggestions, criticisms are appreciated (though I may not always implement suggestions) so please feel free to post them.
If you find this plugin useful, I would be grateful if you could give some token of appreciation for the work that has gone into this, and perhaps post some example usages you've come up with in the XThreads forum to help others get an idea of what can be achieve with this plugin (and for my own interest's sake Tongue).

RE: XThreads
I suppose some webserver setups may intercept 404 responses and do their own thing rather than display what they're told to.

Did you mean that the link works sometimes?
Do you have XTHREADS_ATTACH_LINK_IPMASK set?
Have you modified MyBB's default MYBB_ROOT define?

The image is now displayed correctly and if an incorrect url is visited the expected error message is displayed. This after reverting XTHREADS_EXPIRE_ATTACH_LINK back.

I don't remmeber if it worked the first time I did set a value for XTHREADS_EXPIRE_ATTACH_LINK but I just noticed it a few days ago (I never finished the project and just went back to finalize it..). My assumption is that the link was never updated and the image stopped working without displaying an error message when accessing directly to it.

No.

RE: XThreads
I'm using PHP7.0-FPM, Nginx 1.9.12, and MariaDB (but maybe switching to PostgreSQL), will I run into any compatibility issues or should your recent update as of 12-25-2015 resolve any problems running on a bleeding-edge stack?

RE: XThreads
XThreads isn't compatible with PostgreSQL, but otherwise that configuration should be fine.

RE: XThreads
Everything works Biggrin

Only doesn't work this code, in forumdisplay (after 4 or 8 threads I see condition):

PHP Code:
<if (($threadcounter - 4) % $mybb->settings['threadsperpage'] == 0) then>
- condition -
    
<elseif (($threadcounter - 8) % $mybb->settings['threadsperpage'] == 0) then>
- condition -

RE: XThreads
I'm still using and loving this plugin Heart Thanks a lot!


I wanted to know if it is possible to show some of the fields in the profile? I have a plugin that gives an overview over some of Threads a User has in specific areas and I'd love to show the Prefixes and Thread Descriptions too. (Link to the used Plugin: Ingame Scenes)

RE: XThreads
You'd need a custom modification for that to work unfortunately.
