Description of problem

Hi,

Okay so these features I've noticed on IPB board and other Forumotion sites and was wondering if Forumotion has these:

1. Achievement
- How is this done exactly? http://www.duelacademy.net/

2. Merging of 2 accounts
- This is a feature that I've encountered in IPB forum where a member has 2 accounts and the administrator or whoever has the power is able to merge them. Is that possible here?

3. Merging of 2 or more posts into one
- Another feature I saw in IPB and this is to avoid double posting. If ever you're going to post again but you want to avoid double post and don't want to go to the hassle of editing your post, just have the 2 posts merge.

4. Post to get approved by a moderator
- This is a post to be submitted but before it appears in public, a moderator or an administrator has to approve of it first, is this possible?

5. Simple and Advanced posting
- This is Forumotion's feature. How do you do something like that and is this still in Beta version as well as the current reply box because whenever I click on some functions like emoticons, they don't work?

Regards,
Pizza Boi

1. You can create a profile field that serves as a separator, and after that place all profile fields that will serve as your achievements. You could also just use a textarea which is modifiable by administrators or moderators as well.
( Users and groups > Profiles )

2. As far as I know, Forumotion does not yet have this functionality.

3. There's no option for this, but Ea did write a script for doing just that.
http://help.forumotion.com/t136448-phpbb-aggregate-double-posts

4. Not to my knowledge. The only thing I can think of, would be for the member to submit their post to a staff member before posting.

5. We added this to go with the form which we got from the French forum, then translated and updated it. Originally there was no option between the form and traditional way of posting. I didn't want to force people to fill out a form, so I thought I'd give them the choice earlier on.

It's mostly a script and an HTML page. A question was asked about it here, which should answer your question.

Hi Very Happy

I've tried that but the Multiple Choice one is the only valid. I want it to be as images unless you can show me an example on how to do it :o (For #1)

Multiple choice could work well with some javascript to replace the text with an image. First create a field to be your separator, here's how mine looks :

Save, and then edit the field and force the default value for everyone.

Next create your award field, this is how mine is setup :


For the value, make sure that it contains award{}. Inside the curly brackets you can include two more fields :

1. image()
2. title()

Inside the parentheses of the image field is where you'll place the URL of your image. The title is option, but if you want a tooltip to popup on mouseover this is where you can place those texts. Here's an example :
Code:
award{image(http://i62.servimg.com/u/f62/11/22/70/40/fmfire10.png)title(Mozilla Firefox)}

When you're done, save the field. You'll want to reorganize your fields so your separator is above your awards. Next go to Administration Panel > Modules > JavaScript codes management > Create a new script

Placement : In all the pages
Code:
$(function() {
  for (var l = document.getElementsByTagName('LI'), i = 0, j = l.length, title, data; i<j; i++) {
    data = l[i].innerHTML;
   
    if (/award\{.*?\}/i.test(data)) {
      title = /title\(.*?\)/i.test(data) && data.replace(/.*title\((.*?)\).*/i,'$1') || 0;
      l[i].innerHTML = data.replace(/award\{.*?\}/i, '<img src="' + data.replace(/.*image\((.*?)\).*/i,'$1') + '"' + (title ? 'title="' + title + '" alt="' + title + '"' : '') + '/>');
    }
  }
});

This script will convert award{} and its contents to an image.

If you want your awards to be side by side, add this to your stylesheet :
( Display > Colors > CSS stylesheet )
Code:
.profile_field_list li { display:inline }
