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).

Anyway I´ll wait until the next Xthreads release. Thanks Smile
Do you get the same error?  Because my testing indicates that it has been fixed.

What did you do exactly?

RE: XThreads
I´m linking manually to them in my sidebar:

/forumdisplay.php?fid=12&filterxt_prefix=10
/forumdisplay.php?fid=12&filterxt_prefix=12
/forumdisplay.php?fid=12&filterxt_prefix=13

using the updated "inc\xthreads\xt_forumdhooks.php". Same error

EDIT: Viewing as a guest is OK, but as a registered user is showing that error msg in both versions. It could be a cache issue here? Thanks

RE: XThreads
Are you absolutely sure that you are using the latest xt_forumdhooks.php?
Try the attached version:

I presume that you have an unedited forumdisplay.php as well?

RE: XThreads
@zinga I´ve just compared xt_forumdhooks.php in notepad++ and it´s the same file already uploaded to my server

all files are from 1.6.4 full package except latest functions.php from Google Seo.

* $Id: forumdisplay.php 5480 2011-07-04 21:29:44Z huji $

My forumdisplay Template is pretty default, just HTML changed

This issue has been checked in my xampplite installation too, so I believe is not a server issue. Guest = OK, Registered = mysql error

Thanks, and sorry for the lack of feedback, I´m not a programmer to dig this deeply.

RE: XThreads
Updated to v1.45 - fixes for MyBB 1.6.4:
  • thread filtering broke in MyBB 1.6.4, this release fixes that (thanks RateU and AglioEoliO for finding this)
  • sorting by thread prefix also broke in MyBB 1.6.4; this has been fixed, however the functionality will be slightly different for MyBB >= 1.6.4 - similar to thread icon sorting, sorting will sort by prefix ID, whereas for MyBB 1.4.0 - 1.6.3, sorting will be done by prefix text (thanks to RateU for identifying this issue)

Hi Zinga - when you refer to sorting by thread prefix do you mean ONLY the MYBB functionality? This will not affect thread prefixes made in XThreads will it? Will we still be able to filter by uid as before?

EDIT: I have not yet upgraded to 1.6.4 of MYBB.
