Custom Ranks

Post by Yoshi 15 »

Ok, are Custom Ranks going to be installed by default in phpbb 2.2, so you dont have to use a mod for them?

I'm not understand what you mean. Custom ranks are available in 2.0.x. Why wouldn't they be in 2.2?

I'd assume he refers to user-customizable ranks, where the user is able to directly set a rank/title in his or her profile. I can't really answer this, as I have no idea. And we may not find out until later on. If they're not, I'll look at continuing my MOD, but there are of course no guarantees.

Yes, I mean user-customable titles.

So, instead of having to spend like 30 min to install a mod for them, they could be installed already. And have them like the Custom Title MOD already out.

Admin-definable profile fields are inadequate for how most admins I know intend to use custom titles. First and foremost, as far as I'm aware, admin-definable profile fields will not be available to viewtopic. Second, I'm not sure if there'll be a way for these profile fields to be activated after a certain number of days or posts, or if you just have them. That's an implementation detail of the fields that I won't know until they're implemented. Finally, though I generally don't use it is this way, many admins choose to replace the board defined rank (that a user gets for having so many posts) with their custom rank once they have it, which couldn't be done with a profile field without changing some code.

Actually, based on what I have heard, such a facility as Aexoden describes might be available later.

Look around here for stuff relating to the "event system"
