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: 1242)

- 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
Hi, I would like ask you for a small advise:
I use this type of custom field:
- input field type: file
- editable/required by: everyone
- valid file expression: gif|png|jpg|jpeg
- maximum file size: 2097152
- image thumbnail generator: 90x135|320x240

I need to set into the field: Blank replacement Value - show a default image (myboard.com/defaultimage.png) automatically if there is no image added by user. How to do that, thank you!

If you haven't found any solution yet, you can try using something like this in your Blank Replacement Value

HTML Code
<img src="images/logo.png" alt="" />

RE: XThreads
I use a similar thing:

Code:
<if !$GLOBALS['threadfields']['your field name for image']['url'] then>
	<img src="if there isn't an image uploaded in Custom Thread Field I add here directly image of default" />
<elseif $GLOBALS['threadfields']['your field name for image']['url'] then>
	<img src="{$GLOBALS['threadfields']['your field name for image']['url']}/thumb400x400" alt="{$thread['subject']}" />
</if>

RE: XThreads
Guys, is possible to show pinned threads in a row? For example 3 on the same row. I cannot find proper template to do that. Thank you very much!

RE: XThreads
I am trying to add a watermark to my images uploaded via XThreads. I found this in your documentation:

Scale down to 200x200 (or smaller) and add a watermark in the bottom-left corner (loaded from forum_root/images/logo.gif) - the watermark will be slightly transparent when blended (if PHP 5.2.5 or newer)
scale_max(200,200)->copy(newXTImg()->loadimage('images/logo.gif')->scale(50,50)->colorize(0,0,0,48),2,-2)

Anyway it seems to be not working (php 7.1 and MyBB 1.8.12). Is there any way how to create a thumbnail with watermark but without scaling (now I use 160x120). Thank you!

RE: XThreads

RE: XThreads
Hi
I have a question regarding the inc\xthreads\xt_updatehooks.php script. What are these two lines responsible for? (lines #1255, 1256)

PHP Code:
	$templates->cache['postbit'] = $js.$templates->cache['postbit'];
$templates->cache['postbit_classic'] = $js.$templates->cache['postbit_classic'];


is it safe to //comment the first one? As I found that it collides with my forum modifications when sending a quickreply post from Internet Explorer.

-edit ok, nevermind, it was the <!-- //--> comments tags at lines #1249, #1252 that was causing the script to hang up on Internet Explorer.
