  • [Re- Release of the Mood Hack Version 2.03]

    Seems like a fitting version for the mood hack. After the work, and re-tooling that has went in to it, i could not be more pleased.
    For those who have already installed it, the only file that will not need to be reinstalled, is the vbmoodinstall.php file. (tables)

    We will not support this hack, if you had previously added the mood hack, downloaded this new hack version, and tried to get the old mood hack working by making a few changes here and there based off the new information provided. No matter what, it all must be replaced except your tables from the vbmoodinstall.php file.

    I know..it is going to take time..however, the new version is what we are supporting, and nothing else.
    Everything needs to be replaced, which should be rather simple, considering you already have it done, and know where everything is at.

    The instructions are in a step by step format. There are extra text files included, that will help you modify your mood5 template.
    All modifications to the script are pointed out in the mood hack step one text file.
    Be sure to read those instructions, otherwise you will not know that we changed the star format from a needed upload to your smilies area, to a direct hard code to the image in the functions.php file.
    There are other things just like this new change...so please read everything!!

    We had this working, rite out of the box, on two different servers, and one of those was baldbouncers, so I know, that we got it rite this time.

    For those who are now just downloading the mood hack for the first time, follow the directions to the "T" and you should have a trouble free hack, rite out of the box.

    Ok, here we go:

    For those contemplating whether or not you should upgrade, just keep this in mind. The new mood5.php file, does not need any user input for server information.

      Added Functionality to Mood Hack

      NOTE New modifications, provided and coded mostly by Gwynar; and Tora Tora!:

      Mood display modification:

      The stars are now a automatic display, so do not add them into your smilieys area, or
      change the code in the "rate day" area. Meaning in short,
      the stars are now hardcoded so that you do not have to
      code anyting into the rate day area, nor have to upload more
      stars and give them code values.



      ##### NOTE: New modification 1:#####

      The mood5.php file, no longer needs
      any server info. It runs off your
      vb server settings. All you need to do
      is upload it to your server without
      any modifications. These added changes
      also provide higher security for add on hacks.



      ##### NOTE New modification 2:#####

      Censor text. Any censors that you
      have on your board, will now be
      used in the user comments area.
      Be sure to have your censor on, or
      have the words you intend to have
      censored, listed in your vb
      options area.



      ##### NOTE New modification 3:#####

      Time and date settings, are now a
      automatic vbdate format, and time
      format, which allows the useage of
      vb time zones to be used in thier display



      ##### NOTE New modification 4:#####

      Template redirect, and error template work
      as they should, without resembling
      a "stuck" on page 1 hack.

          Great! Glad to hear that.

          I think this latest release will go off without a hitch.
          With the new mood5.php script, and the newest changes to the add ons and instructions, i am quite confident that the problems of the past version will be overshadowed, so that we can move on to the future add ons, or enhancements to the hack.

          Many thanks to those who contributed to its newest incarnation, and a very special thanks Again to gwynar who fine tuned, and rebuilt parts of the script to comply with the origional goal of the mood hack.

            just 2 suggests
            possibility to reset the last mood
            and so just see mood when information has been put

              That was one of the concerns that we are possibly going to work on for future use.
              The issue with resetting though, is one that i really needs a mysql backend setup...which is something that i really am not to familiar with.
              Basically, it would work off the time statements, or date statements, and would flush all mood entries from a set date.

              The other alternative to the display area in your post bit section, is to just have the button for mood, which would pop up the mood template, rather than enter in the post bit variables. Baldbouncer chose this route, and also went with his own custom button to ad some flare to it. The only way to see any of the mood info, is to of course, click on the button.

              Basically, to display only the button for the pop up, and no other information regarding the mood hack in your post bit area, go into your post bit template, and remove all of the added mood attribute variables, except the code for the pop up window.
              What it will display, (underneath your username, avatar, usertitle, posts..etc..) will be just the mood button.

                Addon to mood

                Hello all!

                Description:
                This addon was was created to reset the mood profile's on your Forum. The addon has 2 script functions which you can switch by changing variable "$clear_after" in clear_mood.pl.

                Mode-1 ($clear_after is set to "off") will let you delete all mood's set on you forums, for example mood's that are 1 minute old will also be deleted. I would recommend you run this from cron once a day at 24:00 hours, but you can setup cron as you would like.

                Mode-2 ($clear_after is set to "on") will check how old the mood's are, you can setup your own limit in the script for this. If the mood's are older than the limit you have set in the script the mood's will be deleted. I would recommend running that script from cron every 5 minutes,and set your old limit back to 24 hours. In this case it will delete all mood's older than 24 hours every 5 minutes.

                Installation:
                Edit clear_cron.pl you will find in zip. Follow the instructions in it.
                Upload the clear_cron.pl to your /cgi-bin/ derictory and chmod it to 755.
                Edit your cron table (ask your hoster).

                For: vb 2.x.x + mood hack v 2.03 (and higher i hope )

                To change: upload 1 file (+ config cron)

                Instructions: in zip.

                You will get support in this thread.

                (C)2001 by Stasik the hack can`t be edited or destrbuted without copyright notice.

                    you have your own smilieys correct? The hack uses smilies that you have in your directory, or code that you add to your new smiiles. Please read the "Modifications" script for more info on this.

                    I had tried before to include the smilies, however,
                    I cannot attach the smilies i have, because the file is to big, even after zipping them. If you wish to pm me with your email addy, i can send you the file via email.

                      I will have to give this a try later on. Thanks for the hard work on creating this for the mood hack. It is greatly appreciated.
                      And yes, there will be more mood add ons and features in the future, so we may have to integrate this in on the next time around.

                      Again, nice work.

                          In your instructions it said that some of the files are to big for notepad. As a suggestion i use PHP Coder to edit php files. Its a great program. Check it out.

                            im glad to see somebody read the instructions for a change.lol
                            I will have to check that out..i grow tired of having to download the big files like functions, or member.php into my offline folder just to make a couple of quick changes, and word pad is just a completey screwed work pad for this type of thing. I do not like auot reformatting anything when it comes to scripts, or even html for that matter. Thanks for the heads up.
