Title: Post Template Mod
Post by: jhaagmans on August 17, 2009, 04:42:27 AM
Link to Mod (http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=2041)

This mod will enable you to set a default text for new topics in a board. This can come in very handy if you have specific rules about how to post in certain boards, for example when you have a download board or a board in which you can buy or sell items.

The mod will only change the post template of a board for which you set such a template and can be changed in the Manage Board screen.

Untested with 2.0, any comments are highly appreciated!

No problem, I'm glad to help :)

I will of course make more mods in the future. We're running a forum that needs quite a few custom-made modifications. I will work on a version for 2.0 as we're planning on moving to it in the future.

Hi jhaagmans

I just wanted to thank you for this absolutely brilliant mod!

SMF has needed something like this for a long time. I wanted a mod to perform this function a while ago and the best I could find were the rather messy workarounds here - http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=117088.0

Your mod is simple and elegant. It also installed FLAWLESSLY on a very heavily modded 1.1.10 (with no custom theme edits required either...that's always a bonus!). Credit where it's due for a job well done. :)

Thank you very much. Nice to hear! The reason why it works on a heavily modded board is that we also have many mods installed, so I had to find some workarounds to make it work on our board and on a clean board. The only known issue is with the Age and Gender mod, which adds one comma too many somewhere. The only way to work around that issue is in fact editing the Age and Gender mod.

I can't post screenshots right now, will get to that soon. Basically the only field it adds is a post template text area on your Board Management page.

It's not only possible to choose the board you want to use it, you can specify the default post template for every specific board! Downside is that you can't specify one forum-wide post template, I might include that option in the future. If you want a forum-wide post template, you will have to edit every board individually or run the MySQL query
Code: [Select]
UPDATE smf_boards SET post_template = 'The text to add' WHERE post_template = NULL or something like that using phpMyAdmin. This will keep any post templates that are already set up intact.

error: the package is invalid or damaged  :o
Try and use the .zip package on the mod page as an alternative. I've just added it and it might fix this.

Excellent mod!

Will there be a chance that we can apply a template for replies in a certain thread? Or to reply/threads in a board?

I have a board setup where I have 5 threads where people post reviews. The board is a reply only type board and an addition like this to just the replies on a thread would be great!

If it's an easy fix, will you be able to help me implement it? Thanks. :)

If not, hopefully a new version comes out soon.

It could be done. I don't have time for it ATM and you would have to expand the mod for it.

As a hack to this mod, you could make a select list that says "apply to new topic, apply to reply, apply to both" and set the post template mod in replies as well. But it's not pretty.

Could you give me some more information? Which file and what other mods do you have installed? It's probably a problem with another mod, so I might not be able to help you. It's nearly impossible to keep a mod from colliding with any other mod. However, this has been tested along with many other mods.

In addition to this: there's a known problem with the Age & Gender Board Filter mod. That mod has a comma that shouldn't be there. I'm sure there are more problems than this, but it's quite a light mod, so it should have no problem with most other mods.

awesome work.... works great... thanks

A question.. is that possible for you to make that template not editable. i mean if i will start a new topic there is the template of my message which i saved in setting and now i wants to write content in front of them like:

First Name: (here i can write) 

and the first name: which i store in my template is not editable in editor.?...can you do this plz... thanks

Hi,

No, that's not what I intended to do. I wanted this to be flexible so that it actually is a template. For what you want you'd need to add fields that users can fill in and you would need a new table in your database to fill these fields. I have no time to do this ATM.

Well, SMF2 is prety stable, and i don't think that the final version will include many changes that are post-related.

Can you please tell me at least how i can adapt this mod to 2.0? I just need a direction of what changes do this and that, for example:
Code: [Select]
'permission_mode' => 'normal',does not exist in «$sourcedir/ManageBoards.php» anymore, what this change should do?

I'm sure. But it isn't stable and this is a board I'm modifying for a client, so at this point, I can't upgrade. I'm sorry.

If you can, look at the source code ManageBoards.php in v1. This particular change is adding a rule to an array I guess (not sure and I'm not able to look right now). Just find the array it's adding to and change the line it should be added after. If the array doesn't exist any more, look for something replacing it or just go and try to do this without this specific line. See what happens.

Good luck! And if you want to submit an update to this mod for 2.0, you're free to do so.

Something must have changed in the way the database is queried in 2.0. Look at another mod which also does database changes and see what's changed. Is the
Code: [Select]
global $db_prefix; still correct?

That might be it. I'm not familiar with 2.0, so if anyone is, please step in. I don't know whether anything else has changed, but do these other scripts also use the db_query() function?

Ok, i think i managed to make this mod work on SMF 2, but the issue with 'permission_mode' is still there, i just disabled it in the new version. I searched in smf version changes (upgrades) (http://custom.simplemachines.org/upgrades/), but i didn't found any change that related to this line, and i checked every version!

I am attaching now a new version (0.1.3), the new version is added by <install for="2.0 - 2.99.99">, so it's fully compatible with previous versions.

Very nice.  Installed and is working great. 

I was hoping this would put a bit of text above the text input field... uneditable...  just a bit of text to give board specific instructions.  Any idea how I could modify this mod to do that?   8)

This plugin only modifies the content of the text area. I believe there's another plugin that puts text above your submit button, but I'm not sure which one it is and whether it's still supported.

Looking forward for "every reply" enhancement - very useful mod for those who want form based posts :)

It would be nice if you could somehow include it inside of quick reply as well when you decide to enhance it (or maybe further enhancement - pre-defined form available for "topic starter" only - imagine someone doing reviews while others want to comment it)

Hey guys, I tried to install this on RC2 but couldn't get it to work for some reason.
I was trying on the default/curve theme.

Can anyone give me some pointers on how to get it to work?

It installs and I can set the template in the 'modify board' section, but when I go to post a new topic it doesn't give the template.

Thanks!

Post by: doughboy99 on September 09, 2010, 09:21:24 AM
To make this work with RC3 you will need to manually edit ManageBoards.template.php to reflect the changes made

FIND
Code: [Select]
    echo '
                    <div id="count_posts_div">
                        <dl class="settings">
                            <dt>
                                <strong>', $txt['mboards_count_posts'], ':</strong><br />
                                <span class="smalltext">', $txt['mboards_count_posts_desc'], '</span><br />
                            </dt>
                            <dd>
                                <input type="checkbox" name="count" ', $context['board']['count_posts'] ? ' checked="checked"' : '', ' class="input_check" />
                            </dd>
                        </dl>
                    </div>';

AND ADD AFTER
Code: [Select]
// Text area for Post Template Mod
 echo '
                  <div id="post_template_mod_div">
                  <dl class="settings">
                        <dt>
                                  <strong>', $txt['post_template_title'], '</strong><br />
                                <span class="smalltext">', $txt['post_template_description'], '</span><br />
                        </dt>
                        <dd>
                                <textarea name="post_template" rows="5" cols="35" style="width: 100%">'.
                                          $context['board']['post_template'] .
                                '</textarea>

Can anyone figure out what to alter so that I can use this mod?

I'm using 2.0 final and everything installs except the one edit in ManageBoards.template.php. The code has changed substantially enough to prevent me from modifying the code myself.

Any insight is appreciated.

-s.w

EDIT: I went ahead and installed this and I manually edited the ManageBoards.template.php simply by pasting the 'Add after' code in what seemed to be the correct place. (I searched for:
Code: [Select]
input type="checkbox" name="count"and pasted the code in after that <div>.)

So far, no errors, and it works.
Title: Re: Post Template Mod
Post by: OCJ on August 16, 2011, 01:45:46 PM
On SMF 2.0 final
I used the above topic manual edit (ManageBoards.template.php) then went to the admin section for the boards.
The setting was there but when I entered the template text and tried to save it gave an error message 'Hacking attempt', and does not save the post template text ...

Pity, it would've been a nice mod to have.

Download the   post_template_mod_0.1.3.zip   on the MOD page.  It's compatible up to SMF 2.0.2

When you get an install error on /Themes/default/ManageBoards.template.php  , just do this edit in the file ...

Find
Code: [Select]
<input type="checkbox" name="count" ', $context['board']['count_posts'] ? ' checked="checked"' : '', ' class="input_check" />
</dd>
</dl>
</div>';

Replace with
Code: [Select]
<input type="checkbox" name="count" ', $context['board']['count_posts'] ? ' checked="checked"' : '', ' class="input_check" />
</dd>
</dl>
</div>';

// Text area for Post Template Mod
echo '
<tr>
<td valign="top">
<b>', $txt['post_template_title'], '</b><br />
', $txt['post_template_description'], '<br />
</td>
<td valign="top" align="right">
<textarea name="post_template" rows="5" cols="29">'.
$context['board']['post_template'] .
'</textarea>
</td>
</tr>';


Any other install errors you'll have to manually do yourself.  this was the only install error i got on a clean smf 2.0.2 forum, and it's because smf 2 and hogher stopped using the <tr> tags


Title: Re: Post Template Mod- 'Hacking attempt' - not work with some characters
Post by: OCJ on December 29, 2011, 09:40:24 AM
I said this before and even trying the edits here ... it does install but when you save the template it says
Quote
An Error Has Occurred!
Hacking attempt...
Back

It does not save the template.
When I tried taking out everything except the first few words ... it worked. Seems like it is rejecting some special characters or its too long... I havent found out which yet.
First few lines did save ... will have to keep testing to see where it fails.

Text rejected by the template mod

How to make it work for 1.1.16? Does manual installation "how to" exists?

New suggestion? Allow "canned replies" as part of mod, or possibly part of a new, "pro" version?

I've updated this package for 2.0.3 and attached it to this reply. All tests in the package manager are successful and it installs without any errors.

The attached update files do indeed install perfectly (and on 2.04)

/me notifies the administrators that the above package is technically illegal without the original author's permission to do so.

I know nobody has posted in this topic in months, and not sure it's even supported anymore; but I just found this mod, and it was exactly what I was looking for.

I have a question that hopefully someone that uses this mod can answer. I am interested in starting one board with a pre-filled template in it. When the person fills the template out, they will then have a drop down box with all the other boards of the forum in it (except the private boards they can't see or have access to), allowing them to simply choose the board they want their topic redirected to.

Has anyone added this to the mod, or does anyone have any idea of how something like this can be accomplished?

___________________________________________________________________________________________________

Edit: Um, nevermind. I just realized this can be accomplished by default by setting board permissions. ;)

I continue to get PMs asking me for my attachment that the moderators removed...

The forum policy here seems to be counter-productive in this particular case.

I still have the fixed package file if the original author or a moderator wants it to officially fix this mod.
Title: Re: Post Template Mod
Post by: Arantor on January 29, 2014, 07:02:27 AM
The policy is because of a little thing called copyright law which we are unfortunately bound to uphold.

Any hopes of adding this into 2.1? or adding responsiveness to the templates? This is something my site *adores* and I would love to keep it going.
Title: Re: Post Template Mod
Post by: Arantor on August 01, 2019, 01:32:00 AM
There is zero chance it will become part of 2.1 but it’s not impossible to update for 2.1.
Title: Re: Post Template Mod
Post by: StarredSkies on August 02, 2019, 09:57:04 PM
Well if anyone has interest in updating it for 2.1, then that'd be awesome. We shall see! Thank you.

I'd like to get this to work on 2.0.15

I did the following
Download the   post_template_mod_0.1.3.zip   on the MOD page.  It's compatible up to SMF 2.0.2

When you get an install error on /Themes/default/ManageBoards.template.php  , just do this edit in the file ...

Find
Code: [Select]
<input type="checkbox" name="count" ', $context['board']['count_posts'] ? ' checked="checked"' : '', ' class="input_check" />
</dd>
</dl>
</div>';

Replace with
Code: [Select]
<input type="checkbox" name="count" ', $context['board']['count_posts'] ? ' checked="checked"' : '', ' class="input_check" />
</dd>
</dl>
</div>';

// Text area for Post Template Mod
echo '
<tr>
<td valign="top">
<b>', $txt['post_template_title'], '</b><br />
', $txt['post_template_description'], '<br />
</td>
<td valign="top" align="right">
<textarea name="post_template" rows="5" cols="29">'.
$context['board']['post_template'] .
'</textarea>
</td>
</tr>';


Any other install errors you'll have to manually do yourself.  this was the only install error i got on a clean smf 2.0.2 forum, and it's because smf 2 and hogher stopped using the <tr> tags

but when trying to install I get this error
Code: [Select]
Call to undefined function mysql_num_rows()
Title: Re: Post Template Mod
Post by: Antechinus on October 01, 2019, 05:09:51 PM
At a guess I'd say that's because it's using invalid markup. It looks to be trying to just insert random table bits out of context, which could screw everything after that. That's probably causes a cascade of f*#kery (technical term, which you are probably familiar with) resulting in somehow having a db call showing up in the template.

Would suggest using a div instead. This should work (may need a bit of CSS to style it):

Code: [Select]
<input type="checkbox" name="count" ', $context['board']['count_posts'] ? ' checked="checked"' : '', ' class="input_check" />
</dd>
</dl>
</div>';

// Text area for Post Template Mod
echo '
<div>
<div>
<b>', $txt['post_template_title'], '</b>
<br />
', $txt['post_template_description'], '
</div>
<textarea name="post_template" rows="5" cols="29">
'.$context['board']['post_template'] . '
</textarea>
</div>';


Of course you can add your own classes or ID's if it'll make the CSS easier.

thanks, i tried that still the same error when trying to install
Title: Re: Post Template Mod

Nope, mod needs partial rewrite because it isn’t using the correct $smcFunc code.
Title: Re: Post Template Mod
Post by: shadav on October 01, 2019, 05:55:49 PM
darn.... well hopefully they'll get around to updating it :D

would be nice to use this in my teachers advertising board to make sure that they post all required information for folks to get ahold of them
Title: Re: Post Template Mod
Post by: Antechinus on October 01, 2019, 06:06:25 PM
Well the markup in that suggested code was stuffed anyway, so I'd still advise using the div, etc. :D

ETA: The original author hasn't been active since 2010. The latest version of the mod on the download page claims to be compatible with 2.0 RC1, but according to the parser it isn't. The parser says that it's not compatible with anything later than 1.1.10.

You claim to like messing with databases and stuff. You could always update it yourself. It's kosher to edit mods for your own use. You're just not supposed to distribute an edited package without permission.

:laugh: :laugh: :laugh:
I don't know about that, I said it could be fun playing in the db ;D
i may play with this later and see if I can't figure it out, still not fully used to smf and well..... I know enough to get myself into trouble is about all :p can kind of follow the logic in things and figure out how they work to tweak them but then that'd mean i'd need to understand smf first  ;D
years ago I could mod phpLD but I worked with it so much that I had figured out how things worked  :P this is still a learning curve for me
hahaha those qbasic classes umpteen years ago don't much apply these days ;)
Title: Re: Post Template Mod
Post by: shadav on October 01, 2019, 10:10:01 PM
ok with a bit of help pointing in the right direction i got past that error but now another one

Code: [Select]
Call to undefined function mysql_free_result()
and it's this code that's causing it
Code: [Select]
mysql_free_result ($request);
hahaha i tried the same fix to fix the above issue but then got this warning  :P
Function name must be a string
i knew it couldn't be that easy.....

ok figured it out after a bit of searching, it's depreciated.... using
Code: [Select]
mysqli_free_result($request);instead seems to have worked

Post by: Diego Andrés on October 03, 2019, 10:23:42 PM
Yes, except you wouldn't have to update the lines manually if the mod was using $smcFunc
