Title: Custom Action Mod
Post by: Norv on May 09, 2006, 08:35:29 PM
Link to Mod (http://mods.simplemachines.org/index.php?mod=331)

This mod will add an unlimited number of custom actions, configurable in Features and Options. There are 3 types, HTML, BBC, and PHP. They can be accesed by going to http://www.yoursite.com/smf/index.php?action=action name. Each action has an unlimited number of sub-actions, which can be accessed by going to http://www.yoursite.com/smf/index.php?action=action name;sa=sub-action name.


Enhancement for it:
If you wish to make it work with the link tree, you may find useful these instructions DanCarroll has been nice to share:

Garry, if you don't know what this mod does, why did you install it?

I installed it becuase it is the only way you can see if it is something you like or not

I didn't know that it would be so hard for " winrules  " to read my question and give me a straight answer

This isnt a complaint as the FORUM was FREE  and the MODS that I have installed were FREE and as we all know ....

Beggers cant complain about the generosity of others , but being a newbie to this kind of thing , I didnt know that you have to ask a question about 6 times and in 3 or 4 different formats before it will get answered .............

There are no help screens or instructions with these MODS so how do you know if they are doing what there supposed to do if you dont know what to type into the text boxes and data input areas to make them work.............

I may sound like i am whinning or angry , but I am not . Id just like to know what I am supposed to do with a Mod so I can determine if it is working or if it is of any walue to me for what I am doing

These are all actions. Actions are stuff you do in forums. This mod lets you make custom actions more easily.

Wow  I am pretty impressed with the examples  as they do many things I have been trying to do

Would there be an example of the code that was put into the box in the actual MOD to show how it is done
Title: Re: Custom Action Mod

As it says in the description, you can use either html, BBCode or php.

I guess I am a total idiot and cant simplly express the concept of

do you have an example of the code that I am to use

I am really trying to learn some things here and I feel like a total idiot becuase I think I am asking the correct questions , but I dont seem to be getting anywhere

(http://i45.photobucket.com/albums/f97/GarryLawton/action.jpg)

Can someone tell me what goes in each area and where do I learn more   about what I would need to know to put in the code area

In example.....

What code would I put in the code box to do this

Overall, NICE MOD !!!!!!!!!!!

Yes I see that youu need to put some code in the box

what I am hoping is that someone will post what needs to go in the box so I can see it work on my own forum and start to understand it

Title: Re: Custom Action Mod
Post by: mforum on May 13, 2006, 10:11:01 AM
What goes into the box depends from the action you wanna make  ;)
It would be usefull for us newbies someone post the code of a certain action  :)

Like a quick copy and paste into the code function in a post and we could see and use it to understand what it is all about

Any example would be great

and any help in using the
Quotedefault smf features, link the memberlist (?action=mlist)

would be greatly appreciated

Like where would I find all the actions  that are available




Im just an old guy trying to learn something new for the fun of it

thanks for the reply

You can use this mod to make a rules page or you can make article pages etc. You can put any kind of info you want in there and it will be surrounded by the forums format. It doesn't have to be some kind of forum code.

Its very handy.

Thanks woody

Can you copy what you have in one of the action boxes  " such as a Rules page " and paste it in to a post  , so I can see what your talking about

along with the name  and other stuff that the action mod calls for


(http://i45.photobucket.com/albums/f97/GarryLawton/action.jpg)

also

what goes in the other boxes  and where do I find " The Output " this action makes  and how do you call it


Like all I am looking for is someone to show me what they have put into to data imput areas

and tell me where I find the output from the action Mod

I really cant believe how hard this has been to get someone to show me what to do








Title: Re: Custom Action Mod
Post by: woden on May 14, 2006, 02:29:44 AM
when you fill in the form:

name is the name of the action (or webpage), if you put rules, then when you get ready to link to it use forum/index.php?action=rules

type is either HTML, BBC or PHP, you pick which one you'll be using

page title is what will show in the browser window as the page title, not the file name


code is where you type in your info, webpage stuff, pictures etc, your content for the page

for instance

<h3>This page was made with the custom action mod</h3>
Ain't it nifty


for a real example see http://www.shelldwellers.com/index.php?action=articles

A thank You to all who had the patients with me to get me through learning how to run this mod

As a newbie , I find many MODS on here hard to understand as there are no real instructions with them for us old Farts that are PHP Forum Challenged

Thank you all again

If I may ask you a couple of questions ?

On that forum you sent me to to see a real example

Great mod! Use it to show my forum rules in the menü. But one question about it:

I get a lot of errors like this:

8: Use of undefined constant rules - assumed 'rules'
Datei: /srv/www/htdocs/web78/html/smfport/Themes/default/Admin.template.php (eval?)
Zeile: 492

8: Use of undefined constant rules - assumed 'rules'
Datei: /srv/www/htdocs/web78/html/smfport/Themes/default/PersonalMessage.template.php (eval?)
Zeile: 492


...And so on. That were about 40 sites of error messages like this one day! How can I fix this? I'm using 1.1RC2 with default theme. These mods are installed: Custom Action Mod, Security Patch, Custom Profile Field, Sticky First Post.
Title: Re: Custom Action Mod

Installed with no errors ...
But if i add a action ....(php)

Parse error: parse error in Sources\Load.php(1623) : eval()'d code(7) : eval()'d code on line 1

You have to define what the action is, so in who.yourlanguage.php in themes/default/languages you would have to add a string for $txt['whoall_youraction']

With the parse error, that's an error in the code you're entering, not with the mod. If you post the code you're using I can help you fix it. With the layout, I don't get what you mean, isn't that what it's supposed to do?

OK, I see what you mean by that, but I won't make it do that by default, I want it to be as custimizable as it can be, you could just copy the HTML from those other pages.

Addes "rules" there twice. Once for the change of the active tab and the second for the link himself. Any errors in my code?

With the error messages, In the code you added for the button, $txt[rules] should be $txt['rules'].

It's not a bug, it's that the database column is a TEXT column, which limits the data to 65535 characters. If you want to use this mod with a something longer than that, you will have to set the "value" column in the settings table to MEDIUMTEXT or LONGTEXT.

omg.

*sings praises for this mod*

Now, how do I associate the custom action with a description in the 'Who's Online' ... Right now, it says "unknown action"

I also created a button for my custom action. However, click on the button does not highlight the background of the button itself; instead the 'Home' button becomes highlighted. My custom button does work for my custom action, but the button does not visually indicated that it is the one activated.

If you would, you could come to my forum and click on the shop button to see what I'm talking about. (See signature).

And by the way, the link is here (http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=63203.0) for making sure the background of the button indicates that the button is activated. The "Step 1" that was mentioned in the quote of this post.

index?action=gallery

instead of what I have now, which is

index?page=7

Would I need to copy everything from the php page into the textarea that says "code" in the custom actions mod in order to do this? Or is there some way I can tell the custom actions mod "go pick up the php from page 7"?

You will have to manually copy it. There is no converter script from TinyPortal articles.

I'm needing a little help with my code.  I am trying to pull some of the SSI forum codes using PHP but I keep getting errors.  I am not really good with PHP so I'm sure I am making a really stupid mistake.

The code I am trying to use is:

<?php require("/home/fsvzwtpl/public_html/chinclub/forum/SSI.php"); ?>
<?php ssi_recentTopics(); ?>

Title: Re: Custom Action Mod

Don't put in the

Just use

ssi_recentTopics();

Give that a try.  :)

That shouldn't be caused by this mod...You should make a topic about it in General English Support (http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?board=9.0) if you think it's a SMF issue.

if ($context['user']['is_logged'])

the page works fine for guests and users as it should be. But, if I try to delete another action I get the error:

This is excellent tool.

What about providing permissions for actions and option to set button for action in main menu, but not just that, how about being able to set button whenever action could be used, for instance, in user profile, in posts.. etc...?

So,
If I wanted to add an action to open another webpage within my forum...

How would I code that in the code box?

Thanks in advance for Helping
You can use a Iframe.

This is excellent tool.

What about providing permissions for actions and option to set button for action in main menu, but not just that, how about being able to set button whenever action could be used, for instance, in user profile, in posts.. etc...?

I also would like to be able to set set description and keywords for HTML header for each custom action.


You will have to edit the template to make a button right now.

Post by: JunFan on October 16, 2006, 08:25:16 PM
I'd like to know what context that code comes into when executed from a custom action...

My action with which I have issue is http://councilofelders.net/index.php?action=apply (http://councilofelders.net/index.php?action=apply), I have a check that you must register to test it, but basically it posts a form up, you fill in the inputs and click submit.  The submit posts to http://councilofelders.net/index.php?action=apply2 (http://councilofelders.net/index.php?action=apply2)...another custom action.  I used to run this piece as a straight php file but I thought I'd get jiggy and turn it into a custom action...as I straight php file on the diskdrive of the server I was golden...all worked well.

My code in action=apply2 takes the form inputs from action=apply and formats them into a forum post and manually updates the database posting as a dummy user.  The idea here is to create posts in a board with very restricted visibility to a certain group of members on my site.  So the Application user is the author of the post. 

Now that I've made this action=apply2 I get the following error from my db update code:

Database Error
Table 'db180608952.messages' doesn't exist
File: /homepages/11/d1802342383/htdocs/hosts/councilofelders.net/www/Sources/Load.php(1708) : eval()'d code(9) : eval()'d code
Line: 102


The code for the first reference to the messages table is as follows:

// We've got the message, now post it and get its ID.
db_query("
INSERT INTO {$db_prefix}messages
(ID_BOARD, ID_MEMBER, subject, posterName, posterEmail, posterTime,
posterIP, smileysEnabled, body, icon)
VALUES ($board, $posterID, '$subject', '$posterName', '$posterEmail', " . time() . ",
'127.0.0.1', 0, '$message', 'xx')", __FILE__, __LINE__);
$ID_MSG = db_insert_id();


I'm requiring the inclusion of SSI.php and Subs-Post.php.  I'm not really sure why sticking this into a custom action instead of a file would kill the script.  Yes obviously I'm taking out the beginning and ending php tags that I'd have in normal php file.

Any thoughts?
Title: Re: Custom Action Mod
Post by: winrules on October 16, 2006, 09:06:43 PM
First you *shouldn't* have to include SSI.php as everything from there is defined (except the functions in it). With the problem, have you included $db_prefix in your globals? At the top of the code, just add this line:

global $db_prefix;
Title: Re: Custom Action Mod
Post by: JunFan on October 16, 2006, 10:14:00 PM
hrrm judging by the error it would appear that I'm getting the db prefix correctly it matches the database name.  I'll give it a shot and see what it does.

Thanks for the note.

Great Mod winrules thanks I use it a lot :) Now for the question! can I make a custom action use specific theme i.e if my board is set to use the "SMF Default Theme"  can I make the mod use "Babylon Theme" instead, so that when I have made an action and I link to it that link goes to the "Babylon Theme" with that page.
Hope this makes sense  ???

Thanks Les

real fast: I see the php code to make sure the visitor is not a guest, but what would be the php code to limit the action to a specific membergroup?

or better yet, specific membergroups, like Groups A & B can't access, but Groups C, D, F, but not E can.

:)

if (!in_array(array(1, 2, 3), $user_info['groups']) || in_array(array(4, 5, 5), $user_info['groups']))
fatal_error('You are not allowed to access this section.', false);

That would only allow the user to access the page if they are in group 1, 2, or 3, and not in groups 4, 5, or 6. Note that those are groups IDs, not names, and $user_info has to be in the global list.

Hmm...that's a hard one. I guess you could do something like edit index.template.php. Find:

template_menu();

Replace With:

if (!in_array( $context['current_action'], array('myaction')))
template_menu();

Just replace 'myaction' with the name of your action. If you have more than one action you can put 'myaction', 'myaction2', 'ect'.

  Thanks for the reply winrules,
         That's what I've been doing, but I don't have apache, and php, and MySql running at home and to test a small modification requires re-uploading the new piece of code to my server.  All in all three programs running to add a period at the end of a sentence is a bit of a pain, but not as much of a pain as trying to track down the end of a sentence in a tiny window.  All in all a great mod. I wish I knew php, or whatever it is you code these mods in, this would totally rock with a few accessories added in. Like a couple of checkboxes to add a chunk of code (like the peice earlier in this thread to remove buttons.  One for the whole header would be good too) , to the file you were creating.  Anyway keep the great mods coming.

Got a weird thing I just noticed.
No errors in any error log, forum or server.

I created a custom action, using the mod, to a plain jane html page full of links, and I created a new tab for the default theme, called "Links", which works like it's suppose to.
Everything works fine, except, when I click on the "Profile" tab (none of the others do this), the text in the "Links" tab changes to say "Reset Form".  ???
The tab stays clickable, and takes you to the proper page.

Any ideas whare that comes from?

Hello! Great mod.  But I have a problem.
I was recommended to use this mod to show all my members awards on one page.
I'm confused on how I would do this... could anyone help me?

I want to show "Awards" in the main menu...and I would like that "awards" page to show all the members that recieved awards for the month... could anyone help me out? I'm so lost.

Thank u.

OK. I've obviously made a complete hash of this.

I wanted to make a single button to access the theme-changer page.

I created an action and called it "ThemeChanger". Original, huh?

I made the "Type" php.

I made the page title "ThemeChanger". I'm high on originality, as you can tell.

In the "Code" box, I added:

http://www.tlakoc.org.uk/index.php?action=ThemeChanger

Thing is, I'm getting "Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ':' in /home/tlakoco/public_html/Sources/Load.php(1724) : eval()'d code(9) : eval()'d code on line 1"

I'm confused, as you might imagine...

I figured it out...

global $sourcedir;
$p_id=$_GET['u'];

require($sourcedir . '/Profile.php');

loadThemeOptions($p_id);

echo "CP1 = " . $context['member']['options']['CP1'];

Cannot redeclare often means that a code is doubled. Check the files if there is some of the code double added.

seems i found a small bug in the action mod :;(

when i try to copy alot of html into the box it does it just fine but when i save it it deletes the last part to make it all fit or somethig :S
just ignore the content in this just to show u how long it is :P

er... nvm wont let me post
QuoteThe following error or errors occurred while posting this message:
The message exceeds the maximum allowed length (65530 characters).

it works well in a program i am using to help me with the html.. but it deletes part of it when i try to use it :'(

can u fix this?
It's not a bug, it's that the database column is a TEXT column, which limits the data to 65535 characters. If you want to use this mod with a something longer than that, you will have to set the "value" column in the settings table to MEDIUMTEXT or LONGTEXT.

Hello and thank you for your great work with this mod.

I'm fairly new to all this so I don't understand how to implement your above suggestion.  I am also running into the text limit issue.  Could you please explain to me what exactly I need to do to apply your quote above and what files and code to look for that need to be changed?

I thought this'd be useful to make a single, one-click link to the theme change page.

I've tried putting:

http://www.tlakoc.org.uk/index.php?action=theme;sa=pick;u=1;sesc=8fa8a3d0734ebbfc98f1e4cd8f195874

in the "Code" box. That's obviously stoopid, though, because of sessions and things.

Anyone know what I SHOULD be putting in there, please?

If I make a clickable link, in the way you described, it works, fine.

For some odd reason, though, using exactly the same link, as a "Custom action" gives that error.

Most odd, huh?
Title: Re: Custom Action Mod
Post by: Kettu on March 28, 2007, 10:45:05 AM
I am not familiar with the code of the Custom Action Mod, but I think that it is caused by it. Maybe if you make a php code frame around the link. I think the : from http:// causes the error.

Great mod  ;)

I'm using it with the SSI Single Message mod (http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=357) cos' it's easier to work on an editor :) With little changes to how the grabbed message is to be displayed, custom mod helps me to show whatever content I have on one of my forum post. The 2 worked really great for me.

One question, or rather, a suggestion.. To add treelink so that the custom page can look uniform. Forum Name > Custom Page Title.

Cheers!

htmlmaster,

You don't have to put the php tags, just use

include("http://www.nerdcouncil.com/testrss.php");

or put the (testrss.php) php code into the custom page code box directly (without <?php & ?>).

Title: Making a Blog using Custom Action Mod
Post by: spottedhog on April 20, 2007, 12:28:34 PM
I have been thinking about how to use the Custom Action Mod to create a simple blog using SSI.  My thought is to create something that has 2 parts; a blog list and actually showing the blog.  My concept is to make a Blog Board, and make it so Regular Members can post topics, but only reply to their own topic.

OK....  The 1st part, making the blog list, is pretty straight forward by modifying the ssi_boardNews.  I am thinking I could call the modified ssi as:  ssi_blogList.  Then the 1st Custom Action would be:

<div>ssi_blogList();</div>

This could be the link to a Blog button on the template menu.

I am thinking the 2nd Custom Action could be a slightly modified version of ssi_topics or ssi_topicNews.

2nd Custom Action:

<div>ssi_singleBlog($ID_TOPIC);   <---- $ID_TOPIC from the previous Custom Action created link

Question #1.  For the URL from the Blog List created by the 1st Custom Action, how can I get it to go to the specific ID_TOPIC for the ssi_topics/ssi_topicNews so it shows up in the 2nd Custom Action?

In other words, I know I can put:  ?action=singleBlog (if that is the name of the 2nd Custom Action), but how do I code it to do that?   maybe:  ?action=singleBlog;sa=555   where 555 = the topic ID from the link created in the Blog List?

Question #2.  Will the contents displayed by the Custom Action follow the style.css?

In other words, if I placed additional items in the stylesheet for example in a "div":

#blog {border: 10px ridge navy; margin:10px; padding:10px 100px 10px 100px}

Will the contents accept and display this?

<div id="blog">  allll blog content   </div>

thanks in advance....
Title: Re: Custom Action Mod
Post by: spottedhog on April 20, 2007, 01:55:19 PM
I think I answered Question #2.  It should work just fine using the theme's style.css.

soooo, back to Question #1.....

Can I take something like this from the New Comment of the Topics-Replies mod:

'new_comment' => '<a href="' . $scripturl . '?action=post;topic=' . $row['ID_TOPIC'] . '.' . $row['numReplies'] . '">' . $txt['smf_news_3'] . '</a>',


and replace:

?action=post;topic=

with something like this?:

?action=singleBlog;topic=

Would the Topic ID variable be transferred to the ssi_singleBlog(); in the 2nd Custom Action or Sub Action?

thanks....
Title: Re: Custom Action Mod
Post by: spottedhog on April 21, 2007, 01:30:23 AM
....just did some rough testing and what I proposed above works!!!  woohoo!

one interesting thing was I had to require SSI.php to use the ssi_boardNews, for example.

At least it is able to use style.css

Nice work on the Mod!

Hi, can someone tell me how to get frames to work in this?

I added this to the field:

<head>   
</head>
<frameset rows="10%,*" border="0">
    <frame name="title" src="title.html">
        <frameset cols="40%,*" border="0">
        <frame name="menu" src="menu.html">
        <frame name="content" src="content.html">
    </frameset>
</frameset>
<body>
</body>

And created the title.html, menu.html and content.html files and put them in the correct place, But after I save the action and view the page, it didn't output anything..

<frameset rows="10%,*" border="0">
    <frame name="title" src="title.html">
        <frameset cols="40%,*" border="0">
        <frame name="menu" src="menu.html">
        <frame name="content" src="content.html">
    </frameset>
</frameset>
<body>
</body>
</html>


create a html custom page and point tick's code to your_file_name.html

<center><iframe
src ="you_file_name.html"
width="90%" height="500" scrolling="no">
</iframe></center>


place all the html files to the base directory where smf resides or point to the full url of the files.
Title: Re: Custom Action Mod
Post by: spottedhog on April 24, 2007, 12:11:52 PM
I have been looking/testing and I think I see some of your problem here...... SMF does not like the html tags of frameset and frame. I think it is because of XHTML Strict DTD does not allow them.

Here is a work around and could give you something nearly as good using the "iframe" tag.

If your desired end result is to have the SMF header and footer display with your code in the middle, then this is a way to do it. One advantage of this method is that you can get around that darn small textarea input box in Custom Actions Mod. :)

Overview: We will create a new template file and place it in the Themes/default directory. Name it whatever..... for example: yourcodename.template.php Then we will create a Custom Action which calls to load that specific template.....; <----- very little coding there. :)

OK... Let's do it! (using your html filenames...)

Create the template file:

<?php

echo 
'Hey! This is Your Template! <br /><br />';
echo '<div>';
include ('title.html');
echo '</div><div>';
echo '<iframe width="100%" height="500px" src="content.html"></iframe></div>';

?>


Save that file as: yourfilenamehere.template.php

Upload that file to the Theme/default directory.

In Custom Acitons put:
loadTemplate('yourfilenamehere');

Make sure you save the Custom Action as a PHP file.

****NOTE: only put the template name here. leave off the .template.php

One thing you would have to do different is to place the menu.html file at the top of your content.html file if you are wanting other pages to load within the iframe.

Using the Custom Actions Mod this way, by creating template files to display the desired Contents seems to be a nice way of enhancing a site.

I've really been wanting to make more actions, and this mod really helped ^_^

One problem: I have links to all the sub-actions in the main actions, and when I click them, it says in the top URL of the web page that it went to the sub-action, but the page didn't change like it's supposed to. Anyone know how to fix this?

Well, I'm certainly not an expert on this stuff, but I can attempt to help you by saying...

Usually when tests fail (at least for me), it's because the mod does not work on the version of SMF that you have. Not entirely sure if that's your problem, though...

I'm using a php 301 redirect for my custom action... and it works...


header("HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently");
header("Location: http://www.newdomain.com/newpage/newurl.htm");
exit();


Now, my question is regarding the SSI action that creates the menu bar.


<?php ssi_menubar(); ?>


In index.template.php, I have created an additional link for this custom action. Say, for example that the custom action is titled "mall".


// Show the [mall] button.
echo ($current_action=='mall' || $context['browser']['is_ie4']) ? '<td class="maintab_active_' . $first . '">&nbsp;</td>' : '' , '
<td valign="top" class="maintab_' , $current_action == 'mall' ? 'active_back' : 'back' , '">
<a href="', $scripturl, '">Mall</a>
</td>' , $current_action == 'mall' ? '<td class="maintab_active_' . $last . '">&nbsp;</td>' : '';



Now when someone visits the "mall" I would like the "Mall Button" in the menubar to indicate that they are indeed in the mall.

Is there anything I'm missing in index.template.php that would prevent the change in the background for the active mall tab?

Thanks.

hi, i got a center block (using tinyportal) that redirects to my custom action under certain circumstances (user is logged in and a custom profile field is not set when visiting the forum index).
Im using redirectexit($scripturl.'/index.php?action=myaction'); to redirect.
When i visit my action by directly accessing the url it works like a charm, however when the user is redirected by the center block code the user is not logged in anymore when reaching my action.
Heres my center block code:
<-snip->
problem solved: dont use full url in redirectexit() just redirectexit('action=myaction')

Hi @ all,

first : its a great mod ;)

I want to integrate a foreign script, its a small link directory. I'd did it before using the custom action mod by making the changes by hand (index.php). But i got some ugly errors ;) So i decided to try it with the custom action mod. I copied the script named xlinks into the boarddir and created a new action with on line of php in it.


require ('xlinks/index.php');


i also tried it with include() but if i try to open the custom page there are serval errors. I think because of the include path but im unable to fix this. If i run the script by opening it directly in the browser, there are no errors.
The error is this one :

Quote
Fatal error: require() [function.require]: Failed opening required './config.php' (include_path='.;\xampp\php\pear\') in E:\xampp\htdocs\smf\xlinks\include\head.php on line 59

Line 59 of head.php is :

require('./config.php');


I also tried to change the path to ./xlinks/config.php and i got the same error on another line number. After a changed all includes() or require() paths i will get a blank site with no errors. What im gonna do now ??

I've followed the wizard from Google Adsense.

I get this code, which i inserted into action mod page HTML:
Code:

Title: Re: Custom Action Mod
Post by: Marook on November 21, 2007, 04:29:34 PM
No you can't give permissions, but can verify the membergroup in your custom action code... you can use db_query() to do sql queries, pls refer to the online documentation.
Title: Re: Custom Action Mod
Post by: tsmalmbe on November 21, 2007, 06:17:10 PM
Yes I realized that I can perform mysql-queries just as normal. Although, it behaves a little wierd, it does work. How about getting parameters,  there's no convenience-array I could use, I will have to parse the request directly, right?

Oh, regarding the mysql-queries. I now initialize a new connection. I copied that part directly from the SSI.php. But is this necessary? Initializing a conn  requires  me to put usernams and passwords  in my custom action, which is not nice.

Title: Re: Custom Action Mod
Post by: Marook on November 21, 2007, 08:41:50 PM
No you dont need to initialize a new connection, just do the queries... just take a look at the docs (http://docs.simplemachines.org/)
Title: Re: Custom Action Mod
Post by: tsmalmbe on November 22, 2007, 04:30:13 AM
Well... really, finding out what I can and cannot do with Custom Actions is not really revealed in the docs. What you are trying to say is, it is business as usual, right? I can call any functions declared in subs (as long as they subs are included that is), do any sql:ing, and so forth.
Title: Re: Custom Action Mod
Post by: Marook on November 22, 2007, 06:34:59 AM
Yepp ;) Maybe sometimes you must use global [$varname] to get access to different vars... for example, i used the $language variable, which is stored in $_SESSION['language'] to display different parts of my custom actions in the same language, the user or guest has choosed... Its also possible to display the linktree above your custom action... SMF is great !!!

I am using Ultimate FTP to place a FTPish up-loader on my site it has a .js file with it that you are supposed to reference via
<script language="javascript" src="uftplite.js"></script>
I tried changing the src = to the full address of the site I keep getting a box but the applet failes to load Im building locally so unfortunatly I cannot show you whats going on so I just hope that this is not too confusing

alright Im still having issues but I think I got that one figureed out ... the .js file has inside of it the size definitions ofr the applet when I changed them the box that comes up changes so I am actually seeing .js file so it must be something else with the file Ill work it out later. thanks anyway

Awesome Mod, works like a charm, so I have no problem with it's function, my question is about it's use.

Ok, I have archived another site and what I'm working with is about 370 static html pages with css formating. I can see the ability to add the existing code to custom actions editing all links to point to those actions there by integrating the static set into my 1.1.4 SMF forum and it acting as it did before accept it will be surrounded by my header and footer. Ok, that is nearly perfect except I don't want to let guests have access to those actions. From what I've gathered from this thread is that making the action Php rather than Html will give me the ability to put a user check in every action. While I am fairly proficient with html I am not very familiar with  Php as of yet. I have a deadline to meet on the construction of my site otherwise I would just be learning Php and doing this on my own.

My question is this, Is it possible for me to create the action as php, giving me my user check and then have it parse Html code to construct the page. Or alternatively is there a program available that can convert my html code to php.

Any help concerning the possession and regulation of standard html code by SMF would be appreciated. From what I gathered so far in the past 24 hours scouring this site for anything related to this subject is all the solutions in involve transforming my html code to php. Alright well there you have it, I'm sure someone here can enlighten me as to all my options so I can then decide what the best course of action will be.

Thanks.
Jeremy aka Worm

EDIT:I have located a program to convert my html to php and it works!

So all I really need now is a snipet to place at the beginning of my code to dis allow guests.

EDIT 2:ok, I managed to scrounge the first part and it works right
if ($context['user']['is_guest'])
echo "You <FONT color=#ff0000><b>MUST</b></FONT> be a registered member of this site to enter this archive.<BR><BR><BR>";
else


i just need to be able to kill it at this point if guest checks true

EDIT 3: Well that didn't take much time
if ($context['user']['is_guest'])
die('Direct Access to this location is not allowed.');
else


I have been at this site at least a half a dozen times for help. This is the first time I actually posted thinking what i needed wasn't here. Just took me a little longer to find it this time thats all. Leave it to a bunch of forum creators to set the example of how to run a tight ship. Thanks

1.1.4 of course.

It shouldn't be errors. I mean it can't show it as a errors because when I click "apply" after I installed the package in package manager. Ten I clicked "apply" and it took me a page of blank where it should say "success/failed" but it didn't so it took me to a blank page and other packages don't do something like that.

3.0 only works on SMF 2.0. You need to use 2.04.

I guess I posted this on the wrong board:
http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=230762.msg1483865#msg1483865 (http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=230762.msg1483865#msg1483865)

I'm trying to put something like Google Alert results in my forum.  I think I'm getting close to what I need but I need some help.

I signed up for Google's Ajax Search API, and created a News Bar using the search terms I want it to return results for. 

Then, I downloaded and installed the Custom Action Mod.  I created a page and pasted Google's code into the mod pane.  I clicked on "go to page" and there it was in all it's glory!

My two problems are:

1. The page includes my list of search terms right at the top of the page in a cluster.  I need those to be hidden.  I can locate them in Google's code, but I think if I delete them, the search won't operate.  I tried deleting them, and it won't function.  However, I didn't realize that those terms are hyperlinks which, when selected, change the results.  So, I guess there's no way around having them displayed.

2. I need to create a way for members to locate this page either by a Tab, or by a separate board, but I don't know how to do that.

PM me if you want a link to see what I'm talking about.

I appreciate any help you can provide. :)

As far as #2, assuming you are using SMF 1.1 you can create new tabs with this tutorial: http://docs.simplemachines.org/index.php?topic=564

Post by: 58tbird on March 29, 2008, 10:11:23 AM
Thank you winrules!  I appreciate the tip.  I implemented the instructions you referred to and successfully added a new tab, however, all it does is return me to my main page.  I think I'm missing something that links the new tab to the action I added using the Custom Action Mod.

I successfully created the page I want using the Custom Action Mod here (http://auditbible.com/index.php?action=News), but the only way to access it is to click the "Go to Page" link on the Custom Action Settings.

How can I make the new tab link to this page so it can be easily accessed by members and visitors?

winrules, does this support ajax/php script?
I'm trying to make a custom page that contains shoutbox, which is uploaded to my localhost,
but since shoutbox contains ajax and php, it doesn't load, at all.

any advice - what am I doing wrong?

Make sure you have the link right like this:

<a href="', $scripturl, '?action=News">News</a>




ameo - Since you need to add code to the html headers that will not work in version 2.04 (for SMF 1.1). However it will work in 3.0 (for SMF 2.0 Beta 3 Public).
Title: Re: Custom Action Mod
Post by: ameo on March 29, 2008, 04:24:21 PM
I see. Thank you. So the same thing will work in SMF 2.0 beta?
Could maybe this be modified to work in SMF 1.1.4 or not?
Title: Re: Custom Action Mod
Post by: winrules on March 29, 2008, 04:29:34 PM
I guess you could do something like after this in CustomAction.php:
$context['page_title'] = $title;
Adding this:

if ($context['current_action'] == 'News')
$context['html_headers'] .= '<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
<link rel="stylesheet" href="http://www.coldfusion.ej.am/yshout5/example/css/dark.yshout.css" />
<link rel="stylesheet" href="styles.css" type="text/css" />
<script type="text/javascript" src="highslide/highslide.packed.js"></script>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" />';

And putting the rest of your script (everything from <body> to </body>) in the code box in the admin panel.

Thank you winrules - I really appreciate all your help on this and other issues I've had.  I double checked and, yes, I had the right code for the link. 

Meanwhile, I installed the Website Button Mod and it links to the url for the page I created using the Custom Action Mod.  I think I'll stay with that solution for now.

I'm using 3.0 with SMF 2.0 beta. Other CAM pages work as expected but now I'm trying to experiment with ssi_recentPosts and cannot get it to work.

Page type is PHP

Source File Code block is only:
require(dirname(__FILE__) . '/SSI.php');

Template Code is only:
ssi_recentPosts();

I tried adding echo before the ssi_recentPosts call but that didn't help.

Any suggestions on this?
Title: Re: Custom Action Mod

Do you get any errors or is it just that nothing shows up?
Title: Re: Custom Action Mod
Post by: billsaysthis on April 03, 2008, 04:35:39 PM
if I put echo before the function I get a blank page; otherwise my normal templates print (to the screen) right to the point where the CAM template kick in, then there is no more HTML.
Title: Re: Custom Action Mod
Post by: winrules on April 04, 2008, 10:23:00 PM
In the source file code put this instead:

global $boarddir;
require($boarddir . '/SSI.php');


Since the file that is executing that code is actually in the sources directory __FILE__ will be in the sources directory. So "(dirname(__FILE__) . '/SSI.php')" would look for SSI.php in the sources directory instead of the board directory where it really is.

Awesome Mod, works like a charm, so I have no problem with it's function, my question is about it's use.

Ok, I have archived another site and what I'm working with is about 370 static html pages with css formating. I can see the ability to add the existing code to custom actions editing all links to point to those actions there by integrating the static set into my 1.1.4 SMF forum and it acting as it did before accept it will be surrounded by my header and footer. Ok, that is nearly perfect except I don't want to let guests have access to those actions. From what I've gathered from this thread is that making the action Php rather than Html will give me the ability to put a user check in every action. While I am fairly proficient with html I am not very familiar with  Php as of yet. I have a deadline to meet on the construction of my site otherwise I would just be learning Php and doing this on my own.

My question is this, Is it possible for me to create the action as php, giving me my user check and then have it parse Html code to construct the page. Or alternatively is there a program available that can convert my html code to php.

Any help concerning the possession and regulation of standard html code by SMF would be appreciated. From what I gathered so far in the past 24 hours scouring this site for anything related to this subject is all the solutions in involve transforming my html code to php. Alright well there you have it, I'm sure someone here can enlighten me as to all my options so I can then decide what the best course of action will be.

Thanks.
Jeremy aka Worm

EDIT:I have located a program to convert my html to php and it works!

So all I really need now is a snipet to place at the beginning of my code to dis allow guests.

EDIT 2:ok, I managed to scrounge the first part and it works right
if ($context['user']['is_guest'])
echo "You <FONT color=#ff0000><b>MUST</b></FONT> be a registered member of this site to enter this archive.<BR><BR><BR>";
else


i just need to be able to kill it at this point if guest checks true

EDIT 3: Well that didn't take much time
if ($context['user']['is_guest'])
die('Direct Access to this location is not allowed.');
else


I have been at this site at least a half a dozen times for help. This is the first time I actually posted thinking what i needed wasn't here. Just took me a little longer to find it this time thats all. Leave it to a bunch of forum creators to set the example of how to run a tight ship. Thanks

Your post helped me a lot, thank you for all your hard work tracking this info down and posting it in this thread...Well done.

Hi, I scimmed through the entire topic and couldn't find the answer to this question so I'm going to ask it, if it's already been answered, I appoligize:

Where are the custom actions stored?  That is, when I create a custom action, I know how to view it and everything.  However, right now, my site is getting huge parse errors everywhere (I think it is because of my host) so I am going to move to a different host that doesn't mess with your files.  Unfortunately, right now I can't login or anything because of the errors so is there a place in the MySQL database where I can find all of the code for all of the custom actions I had?  I had a lot of custom actions and it would take days to restore all of them so where is this data located?  Thanks in advance!
Title: Re: Custom Action Mod
Post by: winrules on April 23, 2008, 03:24:19 PM
If you are using SMF 1.1 they are stored in the settings table in the database. If you are using SMF 2.0 they are stored in the custom_actions table.

Post by: H3 Skillz on April 23, 2008, 06:47:06 PM
Cool, I found it, sorry for forgetting to say my version number (which is 1.1.4 which may be needed for my next question)  I have one more question.  I noticed that often times when you try to "restore" a forum (not restore the entire database but just restore the users or all of the posts or some other aspect, it doesn't really work all the time.  For example, when you recover the smf_members table, glitches pop up in the total number of members and everything until you change the most recent member id.  Will this same kind of effect happen when I recover all of the custom actions related variables and values from my smf_settings table?  That is, if I back up all of those custom actions now (by just backing up the variable and value for the title, code, name, and type of each), is there anything in another table (or somewhere else in smf_settings) that I have to backup as well for it to work correctly on a totally new installation when I restore it?

Hi,  I am able to make the action just fine but what I need is to have that action listed in the visibility options so that I can place a Tiny Portal Block there by itself. 

i.e.   custom action = "Chat"

Front page

**Chat**

If you are using SMF 1.1 they are stored in the settings table in the database. If you are using SMF 2.0 they are stored in the custom_actions table.

It'd be cool if that were true in 1.1 too.  Any chance of an upgrade? :)  I would hate to somehow crash my settings table. (I'm dealing with a lot of actions)

While I'm tossing things around ;)  I would also like to see - in the admin area....   just a list of actions,  linked to the individual action forms...  instead of having all the actions editable from one big page.

Thanks for a great mod.

Post by: Elrond on July 15, 2008, 10:30:36 AM
Very, very good work, WinRules. This is definitely one that I enjoy using, a lot!

There is a modification I'm working on for it that seems to be working well - adding stylesheets that are correctly served as text/css. I did the same thing with my TinyPortal installation several months ago, for blocks and articles. It's a modification to the root index.php (simply adding the css action in), then a new function in CustomAction.php, using the same functions that the .xml action uses to avoid the attempt to find a template. The new function in mine is called CustomActionCSS. This applies only to the SMF 1.1.x installation for this mod and not the SMF 2.0 version. But code is free to give out so here it is! (Be aware that errors may happen if my installation instructions weren't as clear as perhaps they should be lol). :P

Sources/CustomAction.php:

Add function to any area of the file, just not before <?php or ?>, or inside another function. That would be bad. Anywhere in between the tags and outside of a function will do.
// Parse this action's stylesheet!!!
function CustomActionCSS()
{
    global $context, $modSettings;

    ob_end_clean();
    if (!empty($modSettings['enableCompressedOutput']))
        @ob_start('ob_gzhandler');
    else
        ob_start();

    header('Content-type: text/css');
    if(!empty($_REQUEST['action']) && $_REQUEST['action'] == 'css')
    {
        if(isset($modSettings['CA' . $_REQUEST['style'] . '_css']))
        {
            echo $modSettings['CA' . $_REQUEST['style'] . '_css'];
        }
        else
        {
            echo '';
        }
        if (isset($_REQUEST['substyle']))
        {
            if(!empty($modSettings['CA' . $_REQUEST['style'] . '_sa' . $_REQUEST['substyle'] . '_css']))
                echo $modSettings['CA' . $_REQUEST['style'] . '_sa' . $_REQUEST['substyle'] . '_css'];
            else
                echo '';
        }
    }
    obExit(false);
}


index.php:

Find:
        'cleanperms' => array('Admin.php', 'CleanupPermissions'),


Add:
        'css' => array('CustomAction.php', 'CustomActionCSS'),


Sources/Subs.php:

Find:
function setupThemeContext()
{
    global $boarddir, $db_prefix, $modSettings, $user_info, $scripturl, $context, $settings, $options, $txt, $maintenance;


Add Below:
    //CUSTOM ACTION!
    // Action
    $i = 1;
    while (isset($modSettings['CA' . $i . '_name']))
    {
        // Is this it?
        if ($context['current_action'] == $modSettings['CA' . $i . '_name'])
        {
            if(!empty($modSettings['CA' . $i . '_css']))
                $context['html_headers'] .= "\n\t\t" . '<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="'.$scripturl.'?action=css;style='.$i.'" />';
            break;
        }
        $i++;
    }
    // Subaction
    if (isset($_REQUEST['sa']))
    {
        // A subaction was specified, try to find it.
        $n = 1;
        while (isset($modSettings['CA' . $i . '_sa' . $n . '_name']))
        {
            // Is this it?
            if ($_REQUEST['sa'] == $modSettings['CA' . $i . '_sa' . $n . '_name'])
            {
                if(!empty($modSettings['CA' . $i . '_sa' . $n . '_css']))
                    $context['html_headers'] .= "\n\t\t" . '<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="'.$scripturl.'?action=css;style='.$i.';substyle='.$n.'" />';
                break;
            }
            $n++;
        }
    }
    unset($i);
    unset($n);


If you use the html_headers variable to store those lines, you may find that stylesheets you write in the custom action config can overwrite values in your normal style.css file. If you find this is the case, create a new variable in css such as $context['html_headers']['css'] or whatever you want to call it, and place that in index.template.php.

About the Load.php problem with template_show_custom_action() - apparently that function is repeated twice, for some reason in your load.php file. It looks like your site is working though right now, far as I can tell.

3.    View_Email_Permission 1.0
4.    AJAX Instant Quick Reply 1.0.1

OK.  I'm not sure if this is a question for this topic or not but I have to ask.  I am able to use the mod fine.  What I want to do, though, is to change the 'home' button so that it links to my custom page.  I am using smf 2.

Please help.
Thanks!

</newb>

Just a follow up in this question, and I ain't using SMF 2.0

Anybody have a clue?

I tried putting CustomAction.php as the required file when the command is empty in index.php but I cannot get it to choose a certain command so it loads up blank

Also I'm thinking of using the site integration mod but apparently the pages made here are stored in the database instead of a separate php file...

so any help, idea or clue would be fine...

Post by: Neorics on September 03, 2008, 08:59:21 AM
ok, i actually found out how to do what i asked and what Atheo asked


First open: $boarddir/index.php

Find:

      if (empty($board) && empty($topic))
      {
         require_once($sourcedir . '/BoardIndex.php');
         return 'BoardIndex';
      }


Replace by:

      if (empty($board) && empty($topic))
      {
         require_once($sourcedir . '/CustomAction.php');
         return 'CustomAction';
      }



Second open: $sourcedir/CustomAction.php

Find:

// Is this it?
if ($context['current_action'] == $modSettings['CA' . $i . '_name'])
{
// Set $type, $title and $code, which will later be put into the $context variable.
$type = $modSettings['CA' . $i . '_type'];
$title = $modSettings['CA' . $i . '_title'];
$code = $modSettings['CA' . $i . '_code'];
// No need to continue.
break;
}


ADD AFTER:

elseif ($context['current_action'] == '')
{
// Set $type, $title and $code, which will later be put into the $context variable.
$type = $modSettings['CA' . '1' . '_type'];
$title = $modSettings['CA' . '1' . '_title'];
$code = $modSettings['CA' . '1' . '_code'];
// No need to continue.
break;
}


IMPORTANT  NOTE: The number 1 at the above code represents the first custom action you have in the list of custom action pages you made. Change the number accordingly depending on what number the page you want counting from top to bottom.

Post by: cme1st2302 on September 11, 2008, 12:09:14 AM
I am confused.  The test fails in the package manager on modSettings.php.  I checked for all the code that it has to replace and it is all there.  Why is it failing the test???
Title: Re: Custom Action Mod
Post by: Rumbaar on September 11, 2008, 01:30:27 AM
It has to be exact, and if it's failing in that single file, you can add the code manually.  Having a single test failed issue doesn't mean it wont work, just means a single (or more) piece of code it needs to find to perform an automated installation isn't there.
Title: Re: Custom Action Mod
Post by: cme1st2302 on September 11, 2008, 09:07:39 AM
I went to the package parser and copied the code exactly from there and did a search for it in the file.  Every one of them was found.  I will most likely just install it anyway and see if it works.
Title: Re: Custom Action Mod
Post by: Rumbaar on September 11, 2008, 09:14:42 AM
Yes, just check and make sure the code is all there.  If not just add and you'll be fine.

You're welcome,

Also please edit your post instead of double posting, and also search this thread it has been covered a number of times where the data is stored for each version of SMF.
Quote from: winrules on April 23, 2008, 03:24:19 PM
If you are using SMF 1.1 they are stored in the settings table in the database. If you are using SMF 2.0 they are stored in the custom_actions table.

You are using the 2.x version, please use the 1.1.x version for your 1.1.x version of the forum.

The custom action can be any custom code you want, either HTML, BBC or PHP.  So if you've got a page written you can put it in there as a custom action.

Hey all, good morning (at least here and at this time LOL)

I would like to change the THEME for one custom action (action=podcast, theme Musiconia... see where it's going?).

How?
Title: Re: Custom Action Mod
Post by: ameo on October 02, 2008, 09:08:31 AM
In your Admin CP if you click under Configuration - Features and options you shall find Custom actions in second row. Right next to basic features.
Title: Re: Custom Action Mod
Post by: Rumbaar on October 02, 2008, 09:09:13 AM
Not possible with the current coding of the mod.  As the theme is loaded before the custom action is called and by then I'm sure it's too late.

Is there any way to allow blocks to show on the custom made pages using this. I have changed some things to get the custom action to show up in my choose where to be visible section for editing blocks but can only get top blocks to show up on the the custom made page. I am trying to create custom pages and assign blocks to only the custom page. I am using smf 1.1.6 and tp 1.0.5 thanks for any help.
Title: Re: Custom Action Mod
Post by: Rumbaar on October 15, 2008, 08:43:32 PM
As for custom blocks, you might want to search over at TP for tips/tricks relating to the mod and a block.  I know on many occasions I've found a block code to meet my needs when dealing with addon mods.
Title: Re: Custom Action Mod
Post by: KillerZ on October 15, 2008, 11:26:23 PM
Its not a custom block that Im trying to add. Its a custom page(which the mod allows you to do) except I want blocks such as recent topics or stats box or a script box to show only on this custom page. I can get it to work for the top blocks fine. I edited the TPortalAdmin.template.php(which i know is not smf) in the place where it show the extended visible options and got the custom page action to show up on the settings where I can choose what page I want the block to be seen on or all of them. But I can't get it to let me show blocks on the right or left of these custom actions(pages) If I set them to the top or upper blocks they show but won't show on the sides. Why can side panels not show on the custom action, or as I would call them pages?
Title: Re: Custom Action Mod
Post by: Rumbaar on October 15, 2008, 11:37:27 PM
Well the functionality of blocks isn't part of the Custom Action Mod, so I think you need to direct those kind of questions to the TP support forum.  You'll most likely have to create a block for each action and mark it to show on that key action, in the block options.
Title: Re: Custom Action Mod
Post by: KillerZ on October 15, 2008, 11:49:55 PM
Thats what I have done, but the blocks assigned to show in that action if set to the right or left panels do not show. They will show if set to the top panel only? I know that it is a TP question mostly but I was just wondering why this mod will make pages that have visible top panels but not sides, and if there is some way to change that so it shows the side panels? I hoped to be able to use the mod as it creates the page like I want but just creates a page that doesn't have side panels, why is that? What is the blank page it makes a replica of, the forum page with the forum removed? I only ask this because I can't make blocks visible on my forum page either if set to the side panels, only the top panel, I just wondered if there was some way to change the mod to make a page the same as the frontpage on my TP site with all the blocks visible if something is set in them?
Title: Re: Custom Action Mod
Post by: Rumbaar on October 16, 2008, 01:45:48 AM
The display and functionality of TP and it's block with the interaction of any pages or custom action pages is purely a TP related issue.  Please search TP forums, as I found all the answer you seek regard blocks and custom actions when I had the similar issues on my forums.

thanks!
Title: Re: Custom Action Mod
Post by: Rumbaar on November 05, 2008, 05:44:43 PM
@fermachado Haven't used that, but if you're able to include the custom action as written PHP code I'm sure you could include it.  But I doubt it would be a straight forward as that and would require a number of path and source rewrites on that applications behalf.

@ryozo  The custom actions will only be access through the forum and index.php file.  So if I read you right, then no you wont be able to use it on your homepage/frontpage.  Unless you're using SMF as this via a portal mod.

I am using membergroup on registration but I only want the invited people to register to certain one membergroup at a time.

For instance if I want to create custom action registermu so that registration through that custom action will only allow member to join Manchester United membergroup. Then, I want to create custom action registerlpl so that registration through that custom action will only allow member to join Liverpool membergroup. And other group etc...

The purpose is that when member is invited with the respective custom action registration link, they can only see and choose to join the given group only rather then seeing the whole group available.

Btw, since the currently custom action page is not viewable by guests, I may need to be change as well so guest can see and register through this page.

Can anybody help me on this? I am using smf 1.1.7. I attached here my register.php file.
Title: Re: Custom Action Mod
Post by: Rumbaar on January 21, 2009, 04:43:52 PM
You're after a custom code to allow for URL to only allow for a single membergroup option.  Which isn't really the realm of support for the mod, as the mod is working for you.

You'll need to try a Mod Request, or the SMF Coding area for that kind of assistance.

Post by: buspass on February 03, 2009, 11:39:37 PM
Trying to wrap my head around the difference between actions and subactions. I THINK what I want is subactions..

I've got 3 sets of "things to do" depending on the users permissions and the status of some fields in a db table. It's a radio station/shoutcast site, if that helps put it in context

1. if the automatic playlist is active and a user has the right permissions, they have a link in the header that triggers stopping the auto playlist as well as updating some fields in the DB
2. if it's the same user from #1, they now have a link in the header that triggers the auto playlist to re-start(after they're done broadcasting)
3. at all times, admins(and whoever has the right permissions) has a link to "reset" the shoutcast stream

All 3 of these cases are some combination of function()s that I already have working.. Since they're so closely related, I've got them as subactions
http://www.ghettoradio.us/forums/index.php?action=Stream;sa=Start
http://www.ghettoradio.us/forums/index.php?action=Stream;sa=Stop
http://www.ghettoradio.us/forums/index.php?action=Stream;sa=Reset

This means however that I have nothing in the main Stream custom action
I suppose the alternative would be to create each of those as a custom action, without any subactions

I've been reading thru the docs but can't really find a good description of actions vs subactions




2nd part... Since those 3 actions above are all doing 'internal' stuff, what's the best way to do its job and then redirect the user to a specific page?
Title: Re: Custom Action Mod

I am getting this error on installation:

QuoteDatabase Error                                     Table 'baklja_smf1.custom_actions' doesn't exist
File: /home/baklja/public_html/forum/Packages/temp/install.php
Line: 98

Note: It appears that your database may require an upgrade. Your forum's files are currently at version SMF 2.0 RC1, while your database is at version 2.0 Beta 4. The above error might possibly go away if you execute the latest version of upgrade.php.

I solved this problem.
I left this table in my database after upgrade to RC1 and when I deleted it installation was successful.

I had one error in installation.



Sources file: Admin.php

It asks for:

Quote'pruning' => array($txt['pruning_title']),

And I have this:

Quote'pruning' => array($txt['pruning_title'], 'admin_forum'),

So I insert this line after:

Quote'action' => array($txt['custom_action_shorttitle'], 'admin_forum'),

Im trying to produce a page of recent topics and i've added the following code with PHP set.
It's not working for me.  Am i missing something?  It does produce my themed page but not a  recent topic listing



require("/httpdocs/forum/SSI.php");
ssi_recentTopics();
Title: Re: Custom Action Mod
Post by: madman71 on March 10, 2009, 11:24:04 PM
ok, after a bit more digging, i decided to make a test.php page and upload it to my forum directory.

the contents of this page is:


<?php
require(dirname(__FILE__) . '/SSI.php');
ssi_welcome();
?>


Dont ask me how i came up with that path to my SSI.  I found it  in my ssi example php.  From what it seems that does not look like the standard path, but anyway, i load up the  test.php file in my browser and it works!!!

Now, when i paste it in a custom action  it doesnt work :(
and yes, i did leave off the <?php   and ?>


any ideas?
Title: Re: Custom Action Mod

Got it working with:

The MOD works pretty cool on SMF 2.0 RC1 , You just have to go:

NIBOGO, but is not a button in Admin area?
I installed manually this nice Mod and works ok, but i have not the button in admin area..it's normal?

Hi there !

Same here. But I had also the problem, when I go to the link given here directly to the costum action mod admin page, I do not habe the menus for edit and create costum action pages ....

So it will not work for me.
Is this because I have a german board?
What to do??

So, after hack the "load standard language" mod also this mod works fine with 2.0RC1  :D

And how are you supposed to create actions if there is nothing in the admin panel? The "index.php?action=admin;area=featuresettings;sa=action" address simply takes me to the index page.

Can you create login/logout landing pages with this mod that you can add custom code to?

If you have no entry in your Admin CP then you've not 100% successfully installed the mod.  Try taking a look at your error log or noted Test Failed entries when you installed the mod.

Hmm, well, i only had one problem, with the Admin.php file, but i added that manually. Like the guy here (http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=86793.msg1959718#msg1959718). Sorry for having so many troubles, Rumbaar, lol. I don't know why i always have them.

Or no, wait, what error log? I don't even have such a thing in my logs page in my ACP. The Custom Action mod's log thing is here though, but it shows no errors in it. I just see these:

Admin Log       Moderation Log       Ban Log       Spider Log       Task Log       Log Pruning             Custom Actions            
Title: Re: Custom Action Mod
Post by: Rumbaar on April 23, 2009, 06:38:59 PM
No under maintenance in your AdminCP, as what you've posted don't seem to be entries for that location.  You also have to have error logging enabled I'm sure.

Title: Re: Custom Action Mod
Post by: Fredrik_J on April 24, 2009, 08:00:43 AM
Just a note about the Custom Actions Log entry. As far as I can tell this is the result of the suggestion given about the change in Admin.php. It will on purpose put the AdminCP entry for Custom Actions in this place (at least on 2.0RC1). So, this isn´t any special logs for Custom Actions, it´s supposed to be the link to the settings. But that´s as far as I´ve gotten too, since it doesn´t really do anything when pressed (it defaults to displaying the error log, but that has nothing to do with it´s intentional purpose).

I suggest putting the link under "Configuration" / "Modifications" instead. This should be somewhere just after line 200 in Admin.php. Search for // Mod Authors for a "ADD AFTER" on this line. and make the change above this. If anyone running RC1 can tell me exactly what to put there to also make the link work, I would be very grateful.

EDITED:

First - the change to Admin.php mentioned above is in this message: http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=86793.msg1959718#msg1959718

Second - I missed this earlier:

yourforum.com/index.php?action=admin;area=featuresettings;sa=action

So - another guess since I'm not able to test this at the moment - a solution would possibly be to edit the change to Admin.php to include the link above. I'll experiment with this and get back with the results in a day or two when I'm back home again.
Title: Re: Custom Action Mod
Post by: robinrobin on April 24, 2009, 10:14:56 AM
Hmm, i thought there was something odd about that link, Fredrik. I'll look into that now.
Title: Re: Custom Action Mod
Post by: robinrobin on April 24, 2009, 10:24:55 AM
Oh wow, Rumbaar, thank you! How could i have missed that? lol, that's an important one!

Uh.... wow... ok, lol, i get errors all the time simply visiting around in the ACP. When i activated the error logging just now, i had 7 errors. Clicking on "Undefined" i got two more! Clicking on "Admin Log" and going back to the error log, i got 18 errors in there! What on earth is going on?!

Edit: Ok, so two undefined errors are repeating themselves all the time because i installed the new version of the Gallery2 bridge yesterday but it didn't install completely, so those should go away when i fix that mod. These are the errors that i have that i don't know where they came from:

http://www.website.com/forum/index.php?http://www.website.com/forum/
1024: Canview method for getMembersOnlineTodayStats() function is not allowed
File: /public_html/forum/Sources/Admin.php
Line: 205

When i click on the File address above, a window opens that shows where the error is in the code. And i then see this:

// Default is that only registered users can see the list.
if (!isset($membersOnlineTodayOptions['canview']))
{
$membersOnlineTodayOptions['canview'] = 'registered';
}

// Not allowed canview method? Bang! Error!

elseif (!in_array($membersOnlineTodayOptions['canview'], $allowed_canview_options))
trigger_error('Canview method for getMembersOnlineTodayStats() function is not allowed', E_USER_NOTICE);


That is quite odd i think, because i'm logged in as administrator, so uh, why am i not allowed to view online members today?

8: Undefined index: label

That one doesn't have a link to where the error is when i hover the mouse over the File address.

@robinrobin You should create a support thread in the 2.0 (I'll assume 2.0 as you've not stated still) section, as I'm sure all the errors you are getting aren't mod specific and this is not the place to discuss it.
Title: Re: Custom Action Mod
Post by: Fredrik_J on April 26, 2009, 06:28:17 PM
Hi again,

Here´s one way to make a working link in Admin CP for SMF 2.0 RC1. This IS NOT 100% clean, and my only reason for posting this is that someone else might see it and know how to improve it. I´m really no expert at SMF, so please remember this before you blame me for anything bad happening. I suggest you use this for reference only, but that´s up to you. I´ll just say this once again to make sure you get it - I´m not taking any responsibility if you use this method! But it does work, and as far as I can tell it does not produce any errors. Anyway, this is what I did:

First - Install the mod and ignore the error in Admin.php.

Find this passage in Admin.php (somewhere around/just after line 200). Please note the two ), at the end:

// Mod Authors for a "ADD AFTER" on this line. Ensure you end your change with a comma. For example:
// 'shout' => array($txt['shout']),
// Note the comma!! The setting with automatically appear with the first mod to be added.
),
),


AFTER this I added the following:

//This is a working link for Custom Actions settings page
'customaction' => array(
'label' => $txt['custom_action_shorttitle'],
'file' => 'CustomAction.php',
'custom_url' => $scripturl . '?action=admin;area=featuresettings;sa=action',
),


Please note the following:

1) 'customaction' is something I made up. I didn´t know what else to put there, and for this to work I don´t think it matters, as long as nothing else uses the same name.

2) The link will show up in Admin CP under "Configuration"

3) It will have the same subsections as "Features and Options" - these links will work, but obviously has nothing to do with the Custom Action mod. I just don´t know how to get rid of them. Custom Action only has one main page for settings.

4) I think that a better place to make the change is a few rows up (not at least because the comment more or less tells you to), placing the link in Configuration/Modifications, but I can´t get this to work at the moment.

5) A much better way to make this change is to unzip the mod pack, change the instruction for Admin.php in modifications.xml, repack it, and install it the normal way, but at the moment I can´t get this to work.

6) A last advice for those of you using some other language than english (which results in that you can´t see any buttons etc. on the settings page). Unpack the mod and look in modifications.xml. There is an entry for "ManageSettings.english.php". You need to add the same text strings to "ManageSettings.your_language.php". If you really need this, but can´t figure it out - let me know and I can provide more detailed instructions.

Best regards,

Fredrik

Let's say a custom action is html code but it works with a script that uses some files in folders.

Where should these folders be placed inside the SMF root, so the are called properly without modifying the paths.

Folders call for /something/abc.js
so they call the relative location

What would be a relative location for the custom action? Theme folder? Sources?

Anything that is redeclared means the function has been, as the error says, declared more than once, which is not possible in PHP...

You should almost never use include() or require()... you should use include_once() or require_once() instead.

Hello, I have installed the Custom tab, which i intend using it for Live Radio. I have another site that i have intergrated the radios in with a pop up javascript and i believe this Custom Ad Mod could help me intergrate that javascript into my forum via the Radio Custom Tab made.

But to be honest, i just don't where to paste my javascript code so that when someone clicks on the Radio Custom Tab, the radio stations will pop up.

Could someone pls help me out?

Here's my js code:<script language="JavaScript">!--
function popUp {
window.popUp("Streams/Peacefm.html","Window1","menubar=no,width=470,height=490,toolbar=no,resizable=no,scrollbars=no");
}
/</script>
     
     
      <p><a href="javascript:void();" onclick="win1(); return true;"> <b><img style="width: 98px; height: 30px;" alt="" src="custom.gif"><br>


      </b></a>


Thnx.

PS: Am using the babylon theme 1.1.10

Admin.php

Find

'profile' => array($txt['custom_profile_shorttitle'], 'enabled' => in_array('cp', $context['admin_features'])),

Replace with


'profile' => array($txt['custom_profile_shorttitle'], 'enabled' => in_array('cp', $context['admin_features'])),
'action' => array($txt['custom_action_shorttitle'], 'admin_forum'),

Works excellent!

Install the Mod. with Packet Manager
   
then manually edit Admin.php and Subs.php

go into the database, search for "custom_actions" Table and add the prefix

So I love this mod and it has been working great w/my html code, but once I add some php to my html and switched the code type to PHP I get the error below. Any help would be great

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '<' in /home/content/j/c/l/jclawson01/html/forum/Sources/Load.php(1733) : eval()'d code(9) : eval()'d code on line 1

Hi :)
I've maked more pages thanks to this mod but now i've a small(?) problem with one of this: http://darkwolf.altervista.org/videovalidator/
I want test to translate in english and to see in Ita or Eng thanks to language drop down.
I've maked a php custom action and i've test to use some string from "index.english.php" but not work.
Is there any way to fix this problem?
-
Edit: ok, i've changed, in CustomAction.template.php
// Show a custom action.
function template_main()
{
global $context;

to:
// Show a custom action.
function template_main()
{
global $context, $txt;

and now i can use $txt['string_from_indext_emplate'] ;)
-
Edit: a new problem found today :/
I've an html page than contain link like this:
<a href="http://darkwolf.altervista.org/_altervista_ht/hwu/hwu_menu_forum.xpi">it work fine but after first "save" (the page still continue to work with full link) the editor trunk link like this:
<a href="http://darkwolf.altervista.org/_altervista_ht/hwu/hwu_menu_.xpi">and after a new "save" (eg: for a new custom action) it will corrupt
(i think it don't glad many "underscore" _ in url) :/

I found the admin menu option, it's under "Features and Options." Move your mouse a bit to the right of "Profile Fields", and you'll see the hover effect, with no text within it. The entire admin page is one giant malfunction.

Edit
Hmm, the problem really seems to be with the language files. For instance, my forum is installed with English-UTF8, while the mod only installs to English. I just made the same changes to English-UTF8 as were made to English (keeping a careful eye on converting to UTF-8 without BOM).

Hey all,

My first post, but i managed to get this mod going on
smf 2.0-rc3.

All that is need to do is two things,
First add the button under admin.php and the fix up that database table.


Changes in Admin.php

Find this line:
'profile' => array($txt['custom_profile_shorttitle'], 'enabled' => in_array('cp', $context['admin_features'])),

Add under line:
'action' => array($txt['custom_action_shorttitle'], 'admin_forum'),



Changes in Database:

Done with phpMyAdmin (don't ask how to use it please)
You will find in that database that it is listed as
"custom_actions"
You need to open the table then select the "Operations"
tab to edit the table name.
"smf_custom_actions"


This is all i have done to get this mod working.
Yet to make an action tab i must say,
so will post back if it 'fails'

#| EDIT.

Ok just worked out how to use it and it is working fine,
not what I'm looking for tho  ::)

Only problem i know of and that is it will not auto add a tab to your
tabs up top as it doesn't put a line in your Subs.php

So all you can just manually add in the tab into your Sub.php file,
as you will get the address code form the page when making it.

I'm not interested in finding out how to get it working in auto.
I would be adding it in like i said above.

Hope this will help you.

Hello all,

I will put up a link to show you the custom action i have
made with the mod.

http://www.renegadesatwar.net/home/index.php?action=custom_action_test

Check the database to see if i has made the Table,
as after i made the link it said it was having problems
with Tables not existing, and that's when i found the
Table had been entered wrong.

It is a very good mod, but it is not what i wanted as
all of your page Code is kept in the Database Table.


Hope you get it working as well.
Thanks, Raven.

With the mod all I've done with it was change the
way some things where coded and didn't bother
to credit myself, and don't want any.

Only did it for the peoples that where having trouble with it
and it is a nice mod.

I believe that i will use it and just use all includes on the
pages to reduce the size of my database.
Its a shame it don't make new pages  ;D

Nice mod! But where does it store the code? MySQL? Or does it create a file somewhere?

I just can't stand having to add PHP code to a tiny text box rather than editing a file (which would be easier). Any alternatives?


EDIT: I'll just call to a function specific to each action inside the code box and create a php file with all the functions (hence editing files instead of using these small text boxes lol)

Hi,

I really love this mod!!! Its making my life so much easier!

I'm having some trouble linking to a photo gallery though. I don't know any php at all and somehow I managed to get this photo gallery installed but I can't figure out how to link to it through the mod.

The screenshots folder is in the public-html folder with the rest of my SMF stuff.

Thanks for any help.

How do i add sub actions?

I'm trying to add dropdown links to my overvew button.

I'm going to

http://www.wararmada.com/smf/index.php?action=overview;sa=""""The name I want to use on the button"""""".

and the page is not found.

I've tried adding a page using them info but it tells me

QuoteAction URLs may only contain letters, numbers and underscores.

The code i've been trying to use to add the sub action is

overview;sa=corpmerger

Thanks for the help!

I have a request.  I took over a site for someone who unfortunately is no longer with us.  The site uses simpleportal and has a menu block on the left hand side with all kinds of things in it.  One of the things I need help with are some navigation links that were created using a custom action, unfortunately that custom action got lost in a server crash and I have no idea how to recreate it.  What I am trying to do is create links that my users can use to get to "Topics - Last 50", "Topics - Last 24 hrs", "Topics - You're Watching", "Topics - You've Bookmarked", and "Topics - Unreplied".  This is the code I have in the simpleportal block:

global $context, $settings, $options, $scripturl, $txt, $modSettings, $user_info, $db_prefix, $smcFunc;

// Shows for everybody
echo '<a href="', $scripturl, '?action=links">Links</a><br />';
echo '<a href="', $scripturl, '?action=contact">Contact Webmaster</a>';

// Guests
if ($user_info['is_guest']) {
echo '<center>';
echo '<strong>Registration requires a <u>valid</u>, <u>active</u> email address!!!</strong><br />';
echo '</center>';
echo '<hr>';
}

// Logged in Users (with one line checking for membergroup 13)
if (!$user_info['is_guest']) {
echo '<a href="', $scripturl, '?action=dxrecent;style=full;type=last">Topics - Last 50 </a><br />';
echo '<a href="', $scripturl, '?action=dxrecent;style=full;type=hours">Topics - Last 24 hrs</a><br />';
echo '<a href="', $scripturl, '?action=dxrecent;style=full;type=notify">Topics - You\'re Watching</a><br />';
echo '<a href="', $scripturl, '?action=dxrecent;style=full;type=bookmark">Topics - You\'ve Bookmarked</a><br />';
if (in_array(13, $user_info['groups'])) {
echo '<a href="', $scripturl, '?action=dxrecent;style=full;type=unreplied">Topics - Unreplied</a><br />';
}

// Admin only
if ($user_info['is_admin']) {
echo '<a href="', $scripturl , '?action=admin;area=viewmembers;sa=browse;type=activate', '">', sprintf($txt['admin_browse_awaiting_activate'], $context['awaiting_activation']), '</a><br />';
}




The custom action in question in this case is "dxrecent".  Would someone be able to tell me how to create this action from seeing how it will be used?

Go to Custom Actions under features and options. You should there see:
Action Name | Type | Sub-Actions | Enabled | Modify

There will be a number (0+) underneath Sub-Actions, click it to make your sub-action for the primary action.

Well that's basic HTML knowledge that is beyond the scope of mod support here.  But you can use an iframe.  It can also depend on the target site, they might have code specific for embedding their content.

Hey, Shuban:

<iframe height="410" width="100%" frameBorder="0" src="http://www.YOUR-WEBSITE">your browser does not support IFRAMEs</iframe>

Use that. Just put it in the HTML BODY section of the custom action mod.
No need to do anything with the HEADERS part of the mod.

Make sure it's HTML (type).

You should be good to go.

Hope that helps.

Quick question for you. I'd like to call SSI and other variables inside of a custom action so that I can grab someone's name or check if they are logged on, etc. Is this possible? The code in question:


echo '<iframe width="100%" height="600" src="http://widget.mibbit.com/?settings=4f9c0ee511c70e93a60faa57c6d7ba77&server=otherworlders.org&channel=%23thecbg&nick=' . $user_info['username'] . '"></iframe>';


I originally assumed that as the actions are called inside the main index page which already includes those variables that I could just pull them out however that doesn't seem to be working. Additionally when I try to include SSI.php inside the action itself it creates an error. Is it possible to do this? Essentially the purpose here is to have it so that if they go to the IRC page they get a mibbit chat window with their username already in the nickname box ready to go. Once this is working I'd also like to use those variables to run a check on whether or not they are logged in (and if not give them a "you must be logged in" message).

1. create a custom action
2. in options of custom action mod - un-tick "show the button"
3. separately go to subs.php and create manually extra button
4. use the action created previously as href

On your forum, go to Admin -> Package Manager -> Browse Packages

Once there, scroll to the bottom, click the "advanced" link, change the version to an earlier version, e.g. SMF 2.0, or SMF 2.0 RC5. Click the "Apply" button and try reinstalling the mod.  This should work.  Make sure when you are done you revert your settings back to the default.

emulate SMF 2.0 RC4 - see if that works for you.  Or you could open up the zip file for the package, then edit package-info.xml, find all instances of this:

install for="2.0 RC4 - 2.0.99"

and replace it with:

install for="2.0.1"

Then zip it all back up and try again, with your emulator reverted back to default

This mod is cool. I have a BBC action working. Now what do I have to do to get a PHP action working?

The PHP code I have is good. I coded a simple action and template by hand and it tests good. But using the same code in the Custom Action Mod doesn't work. I'm sure its something simple with the PHP wrapper code maybe? I just haven't found any good instructions or samples to follow.

Help?

EDIT:  Okay, got it working. Have to leave out the SMF specific code.

Making Link Tree work with Custom Action Mod.

I thought about setting this up by extending this mod but I tested it out in the mod's code window for a new action and it works.
Maybe I should find a need before trying to fulfill it but since I had a bit of a trial-and-error session myself, here it is.

In the Source File Code window:

$context['linktree'][] = array(
'url' => $scripturl. '?action=test_php',
'name' => 'TestPHP',
);


    the action=youraction should be easy enough to understand;
    the name 'TestPHP' can be anything you want it to be.

This also works with subactions. You will need to copy the above code into your Source File Code window and another version of it for the sub-action.
See the code below:

$context['linktree'][] = array(
'url' => $scripturl. '?action=test_php',
'name' => 'TestPHP',
);

$context['linktree'][] = array(
'url' => $scripturl. '?action=test_php;sa=subtestphp',
'name' => 'SubTestPHP',
);


An anchor link to the sub-action in the Template Code section of your custom action:

echo '
    <a href="index.php?action=test_php;sa=subtestphp">Go to Sub-action test.</a>
';


Hopefully this helps someone. I had to go through a long process of hand-crafting a custom action to understand how all of the parts worked.
Custom Actions with Link Tree. Cool way to go.

I'm wondering if anyone can help me figure this out.  I am trying to use the custom action function to add some calculators to my site.  In the head area, I had the script source, and in the body, I add the code to follow. What happens after I save it, is that part of the code, actually becomes part of the custom actions page, and I can not modify, or delete the custom action.  The page works, but it breaks the mod.  I have to go into PHPMyAdmin and delete the custom action from the custom actions table.

I tried it without putting the script in the head, and it does the very same thing.  I'll attach the code that breaks the mod, and also a screen shot for you to see what is happening.  I'm guessing this could be considered a bug. What to look for in the screenshot is under the post box, part of the form becomes part of the mod page, rendering it inoperable.


        <form name="spec">
            <input type="text" name="depth" size="2"> Thickness in inches
            <input type="text" name="width" size="2"> Width in inches

I suspect that the mod incorrectly interprets the </textarea> tag as the end of its own <textarea> where you enter your code rather than the end of the <textarea> in your code.
Try temporarily removing <textarea name="list" cols="50" rows="2"></textarea> from the code and see if it helps.
You could also try replacing </textarea> with &lt;/textarea&gt;
Title: Re: Custom Action Mod
Post by: Jeff B on December 02, 2011, 03:30:49 PM
Yup, that is the culprit, however &lt;/textarea&gt; does not seem to be the answer. It renders the calc inoperable.

The custom action page performs just fine once created, its just the only way to edit or delete it is within phpmyadmin.  :-\
Title: Re: Custom Action Mod
Post by: andershz on December 16, 2011, 04:34:53 PM
The mod adds the line below to Themes/default/Admin.template.php, (line 2323 in my version).
<textarea name="body" rows="20" cols="60">', $context['action']['body'], '</textarea>

If that line is replaced with
<textarea name="body" rows="20" cols="60">', htmlspecialchars($context['action']['body']), '</textarea>
it seems to work.

SMF 2.0.1, Custom Action 3.2

I have some scripts (complete programs, like chess, checkers, etc.) I'd like to run via Custom Action, but some have their own log in, and others don't.
I'd like the scripts to be run using the SMF user system automatically, like a separate mod, I guess.
Would the code in the following quote help, or is there more to it?


Quote from: worm82075 on March 17, 2008, 08:47:48 AM
Awesome Mod, works like a charm, so I have no problem with it's function, my question is about it's use.

Ok, I have archived another site and what I'm working with is about 370 static html pages with css formating. I can see the ability to add the existing code to custom actions editing all links to point to those actions there by integrating the static set into my 1.1.4 SMF forum and it acting as it did before accept it will be surrounded by my header and footer. Ok, that is nearly perfect except I don't want to let guests have access to those actions. From what I've gathered from this thread is that making the action Php rather than Html will give me the ability to put a user check in every action. While I am fairly proficient with html I am not very familiar with  Php as of yet. I have a deadline to meet on the construction of my site otherwise I would just be learning Php and doing this on my own.

My question is this, Is it possible for me to create the action as php, giving me my user check and then have it parse Html code to construct the page. Or alternatively is there a program available that can convert my html code to php.

Any help concerning the possession and regulation of standard html code by SMF would be appreciated. From what I gathered so far in the past 24 hours scouring this site for anything related to this subject is all the solutions in involve transforming my html code to php. Alright well there you have it, I'm sure someone here can enlighten me as to all my options so I can then decide what the best course of action will be.

Thanks.
Jeremy aka Worm

EDIT:I have located a program to convert my html to php and it works!

So all I really need now is a snipet to place at the beginning of my code to dis allow guests.

EDIT 2:ok, I managed to scrounge the first part and it works right
if ($context['user']['is_guest'])
echo "You <FONT color=#ff0000><b>MUST</b></FONT> be a registered member of this site to enter this archive.<BR><BR><BR>";
else


i just need to be able to kill it at this point if guest checks true

EDIT 3: Well that didn't take much time
if ($context['user']['is_guest'])
die('Direct Access to this location is not allowed.');
else


I have been at this site at least a half a dozen times for help. This is the first time I actually posted thinking what i needed wasn't here. Just took me a little longer to find it this time thats all. Leave it to a bunch of forum creators to set the example of how to run a tight ship. Thanks

I want to add an imprint to my forum as required here in good old germany :-\

I read that this should be easy to achieve with this tool (otherwise I need to update all themes as it seems).

I got an imprint as .php-file - how can I do this now?

Can I chose type = PHP and do an include 'myfile.php'; in the Source File Code-field? Do I need to define an Action URL? I think I don't need it, I just want a new menu entry in the main menu...

A simple tutorial would be quite useful, is there maybe some that I haven't found?

Hey UNeverNo,

Does the script output something? If so, put it in the template box.

Just place it like this:
<?php

// $boarddir contains the path to the SMF directory, so perhaps it's /var/www/smf
global $boarddir;

include 
'MyFile.php';

?>


Good luck!

Micky, If this is what you want to do. I would just go all the way, Using PHP code. in your source. You could keep track of every one that runs the action.

So create a new table. and add these fields

id => (int)(11)  //Record id
u_id => (int)(11) //Users ID
u_name => (string)(50) //Users Name
u_views => (int)(11) // Count the number of time this user ran this action
u_date  => (int)(25) // Update the date and time the user ran the action

Then every time the user ran this action. Update the record. If no record is fount. Then create a new record.

Then create a new sub action, and call it sa=actionAdmin and this is where you could see the results of who entered the action and now many times the users ran the action.

I've read, and digested, 580 posts in 30 pages for this splendid mod.

And yet, just to prove that I'm the world's worst "user", I cannot get it out of my head that there's something simple I'm missing with it.

I thought that creating a custom action with an enabled button, would put that button on the menu. Yep, it sure does :)

I also thought that creating sub-actions subservient to that custom action would give that button a menu of its own when clicked.  Nope, it doesn't :(

And that's where I seem to be missing the point, or have I mis-installed this on my 2.0.2 installation?

Are these sub-actions really only accessible via URL (action=xx;sa=yy) or should they indeed appear within the new menu button?

I'm off for a tab...

That's the question I've been asking. Unless I've missed something, I can't see how a subaction would be useful, other than via a URL accessible via some method other than a button 'dropdown'.

Title: Re: Custom Action Mod
Post by: Chalky on August 15, 2013, 07:16:59 PM
Hello again  ;)

The Action Name is used to identify the action from the list of actions created.
The Action URL is where you get to choose the URL of your new page, so if you put privacy in that field, the new page will be found at yoursite.com/index.php?action=privacy, for example.

The HTML Body is where you create your page.  Try some of the html you have already prepared for your page maybe, but without the <html> tags.  You may need to play with it to make it appear as you want.

As for the HTML Headers, we'll need someone who knows more than I to explain that one - I just left it blank  :P

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected $end in /home/sites/forgeguide.com/public_html/Sources/Load.php(1747) : eval()'d code(9) : eval()'d code on line 1
I have the exact same issue... On a fresh install of 2.0.8. The action just has "test" written in it. If I change it to html it works ok.

Different line though:

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected end of file in C:\xampp\htdocs\forum\Sources\Load.php(2165) : eval()'d code(20) : eval()'d code on line 1

Edit: Ah, simple matter. Way too simple of a test. Just some random echo works :)

And as a suggestion, it would be nice if you could choose which theme would show the action with by default, like you'd do on a board.

This mod requires/creates rows in {smf}permissions, named "ca_1" "ca_2" etc.

While diagnosing why my members occasionally lose 'allow' permissions to their Custom Actions I spotted that these rows are being deleted whenever anything is changed within their overall membergroup permissions.

EG, I give my Global Mods permission to use Custom Action 1. Later I go to their membergroup and change their Gallery permission. Upon saving that, their Custom Action permission row (ca_1) has been deleted, meaning they no longer have the permission to use Custom Action 1.

Easy resolution is to revisit the Custom Action feature within Admin > Configuration > Features & Options > Custom Actions and reset it there, though it would be neat if the permissions rows weren't deleted to start with :(

Is there a way to include theme's default bars and colors to the "page" under the action if BBC is selected?
For example to look as "index.php?action=help".

Not sure I follow, can you attach a picture of this "issue"?

If the help action is opened, it looks like this:

But if the custom action is opened, it doesn't have the theme's look and is displayed like this:

Is it possible themes' style to be included in the custom page to keep the look and feel of the theme. I saw similar thing in one of the portals (I think it was "tiny portal") in which the style can be selected - to use theme's colors, borders, etc or not to.

It doesn't do anything because it's designed as a base for you to have complete control over what that custom action does, up to and including putting literally whatever content you want there - adding what you're asking for actually runs counter to what it was designed for.

Going with something like TP might be a simpler and better option.

I am using custom actions mode to make CMS-like webpages that render within the forum's theme. I am currently using the HTML feature so that I can insert a page-specific stylesheet into the head that I do not want included on the forum's main page. However I really would prefer to use the PHP option so I can include to an external file, saving me from having to edit the code in the custom actions panel. However, the PHP option does not have the ability to put code in the head (instead replacing that with the Source File Code). Any hacks or tips to kinda get the best of both worlds? Ideally the top box allowing a link to a stylesheet while the bottom box allows the insertion of a php include. I know I could use an iframe on the html side but I hate iframes.
