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: 2064)

- 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
XThreads still supports MyBB 1.4.
Though if you're on 1.6, there's no much to gain from the update.

RE: XThreads
Hi Yumi, just found out that the forum list pagination for filtering threads based off xThread custom thread fields values no longer works in 1.8. The issue is in the following piece of code updated in 1.8 to take into account soft deleted posts in forumdisplay.php (deletedthreads field):

PHP Code:
1
2
3
4
5
6
7
		$query = $db->simple_select("forums", "threads, unapprovedthreads, deletedthreads", "fid = '{$fid}'", array('limit' => 1));
		$forum_threads = $db->fetch_array($query);
		$threadcount = $forum_threads['threads'];
		if($ismod == true)
		{
			$threadcount += $forum_threads['unapprovedthreads'] + $forum_threads['deletedthreads'];
		}


It is not as if the core fully works either anyways so not a big issue really at this point.

RE: XThreads
I haven't looked at your link, but I know that pagination links are broken due to https://github.com/mybb/mybb/issues/1785

Is this something different?

RE: XThreads
Probably related but that is meant to be already fixed. The fix I provide for the issue linked seems to work for MyBB, but not for xThreads.

xThreads fails because, from what I can tell, the query patter it search for doesn't considers deletedthreads for 1.8

RE: XThreads
Hey, it is me again. Unrelated to the above.

It seems that when previewing a post edit (editpost.php) the post-bit first post templates are not successfully hijacked. So..
  • Edit Forum Y, set prefix to blog_
  • Create blog_postbit_first_classic & blog_postbit_classic & postbit_first_classic templates. Plus the existing postbit_classic one.
  • Edit a post in that forum which is the first post of a thread (edit a thread..).
  • Preview the post.
  • Everything fine. Post-bit template matches that of the first post.
  • Try to summit the post with errors (i.e: no subject).
  • In-line error will appear, wrong post-bit template is being used. It will ignore the blog_postbit_first_classic & postbit_first_classic templates and fallback to blog_postbit_classic->postbit_classic.

Oh I see.
Thanks.

Doesn't occur in MyBB 1.6x.  Looks like a bug in 1.8x - a preview shouldn't be generated for an invalid post.
The preview isn't even correct (lacks a post message if you just omit the subject).

PHP Code:
if(isset($mybb->input['previewpost']))

used to be (in 1.6)

PHP Code:
if($mybb->input['previewpost'])


The issue is that when the post is invalid, previewpost is explicitly set to 0 (making the isset check become true, but the old one false).

RE: XThreads
Oh for 1.8 it should probably be $mybb->gt_input('previewpost', 1) then. I suppose this was one of the mass edits to check for variables not set, one of 1.8 optimizations.

Xthreads is upgraded to 1.65, when I had the problem with format_time_duration($time) (resolved with the upgrade), but now I have the problem with this Interface 'DB_Base' Frown
