Gender Icons in topicview / etc.

Post by iyeru42 »

I was just wondering, will there be a Gender feature to phpBB3 in the end along with a male/female symbol to the right of user names? Because that would be an awesome feature (And have a dark grey question mark for unknown maybe?) The gender images also should have appropriate Alt text.

And how about...
  • Quick Edit?
  • Ajax to tell how much characters you have left?
  • Ajax to tell how many more files / how much file size you have left for this post for attachments?
  • Smaller space in between list items? 8O
  • Ability to put down: Topic Notification: No E-Mail Notification but still be able to see it in your subscribed threads?

Gender can be handled by the custom profile fields. OK, so its not an image but it still does the job.

Thanks to the template engine, it only needs tiny changes in the template to add the image. You can use custom profile fields in templates, the parts on how to use and include them are properly commented (viewtopic.html and memberlist.html for viewprofile):

Code: Select all

					<!-- BEGIN custom_fields -->
						{postrow.custom_fields.PROFILE_FIELD_NAME}: {postrow.custom_fields.PROFILE_FIELD_VALUE}
					<!-- END custom_fields -->
All you need to do is to add a

Code: Select all

<!-- IF postrow.custom_fields.GENDER eq "male" -->
        <img src="male.gif" alt="male" />
<!-- ELSEIF postrow.custom_fields.GENDER eq "female" -->
        <img src="female.gif" alt="female" />
<!-- ELSE -->
        <img src="undecided.gif" alt="undecided" />
<!-- ENDIF -->
inside that row (assuming that your custom profile field name is GENDER).

phpBB 3.0 will not have any Ajax. :) This was a concious decision, to give it a foundation that requires no (or at little as possible JS). Now we can add AJAX upon it for 3.2.

Apparently the BBCode adds a <br /> after the list item, which shouldn't happen. But this is already fixed in current CVS. This board is still mostly Beta4.

You apparently didn't notice the Bookmark feature? ;)

You mean bookmark feature of the Internet browser? If not, I don't know where that feature is on phpBB. IPB 2.0.0 FInal came out with a dropdown box next to the E-Mail Notification Option Description that included, but not limited to: No E-Mail Notification, E-Mail Notification and a couple of other options (IE: Notify only on new replies, etc.)

Also, on the templating system note: Some skins may not be compatible AT ALL with this system, and some modifications will no longer be able to be made for phpBB. For example, at cinebolly.com, they have a quick reply modification that when you click on a username (The injection for {postrow.USERNAME}) in topicview, the quick reply mod adds {USERNAME}, This modification removes the {postrow.USERNAME} injection.

Look above you. Right under the buttons "new topic" and "postreply" under the headline "Gender Icons in topicview / etc.". :D

Olympus (phpBB3) will not support any phpBB2 Modification or Style for obvious reasons. You will be surprised how much more flexible you can be as a MOD or Style author for phpBB3, though. You will be able to do a lot more than on version 2.

Look at it this way:

The more you learn about the phpBB2 engine, the less powerful you'll feel.
The more you learn about the phpBB3 engine, the more powerful you'll become.

We will try to offer you as much guidance as possible. I expect people to have far less problems getting used to the 3.0 system, than people had when 2.0 was released almost 5 years ago. People tend to invest more energy when they get more out of it (if it is at a reasonable relation, which we more than believe it is).
