Customize post Count

In progress Customize post Count

Post by Spyro Dragon™ on December 16th 2014, 5:46 am

So I have an elemental ranking system for my forum
www.tlos.openu2.com

And some members and I thought it was a good idea to have a shop thing to where people can buy ranks... but for that..ther would have to be an option to customize the users post count so they can get subscribed to the correct rank...

if I put them in a group wich Ive tried b4.. it doesn't stay
EX if I put them in  ExampleRank Level 3 VIP... ittl put them in,, and change ther color until they post something new and then they automatiacally go back to ther old rank..so I Don't see any way of doing this without customizing their post count so they stay in the right rank and and the right colored group

Possible?

So, what you want pretty much is if I'm a member and my Post count is 25 you wanna be able to edit it and say I have 100 posts for example?  I dunno if this is possible in Forumotion I know it's possible in IPB. But I'm with you. I'd like to know myself if this is possible.

Most likely it's possible via JS

the reason they r removed from the group is because they didnt have the 1000 post so they are removed ... you can turn off Group auto-subscribe �to prevent this from happening or you can create new groups without the Group auto-subscribe option to add those users to... but if this is just a onetime purchase thing i would just add it in css for those users

example

Code:
/*----- green group ----*/
a[href="/u1'], a[href="/u2'], a[href="/u3']{color:green !important;}
/*________________*/


/*----- blue group ----*/
a[href="/u4'], a[href="/u5'], a[href="/u6']{color:blue !important;}
/*________________*/


/*----- red group ----*/
a[href="/u7'], a[href="/u8'], a[href="/u9']{color:red !important;}
/*________________*/

Hello @Spyro Dragon™,

As far as I know, there is no way to modify the post count of the user as it's stored in the database. You could change the number via JavaScript, but it would not be permanent or true. As for coloring the names, you have the following options :

  • Group colorization
  • CSS styling
  • JavaScript styling

These are all manual.

Automatic-wise, you can use group auto-subscribe, however, the user post count needs to be that of the requirement if they're to stay subscribed. I have an idea using a profile list, but it would only affect profiles in the topics.

Editing the post number is something I wanna do. Like let's say I really have only 50 posts. I want it to say in my profile I have 500 posts rather than 50. Personally, that's what I'm after. Which would be the JS code needed for this?

Is there a way to Screw this Database?

yes and no.. you can change the post count but its only for looks ....

so basically if you had a group it joined at 10 post and another at 1000 post

and you used the js to change the post from 10 to 1000 it would say you have a 1000 post but the true value is still 10 so you would still be in the 10post group

If you changed it to 10 to 1000 though and you posted a new message, would it say 11 or 1001 Afterwards?

depends how the script was setup .. if it overrights the value it will always say 1000 if it grabs the value then adds 1000 to it and rewrites it it will say 1001
