A list of attached files...
« on: November 11, 2018, 06:03:59 PM »
Hi all:

I'm trying to make a MOD wich allow to have a list of attached files...

Is this ok ? I made this MOD (see attached file), install without error, but I have no results on the list. This mod, make a new template wit the $result of query.

I don't understand at all 2.0.x ... I know only 1.1.x smf versions.

Can anyone help me ? :)

Thanks a lot !

I haven't looked at the code, but why is there a .mod file ? its contents should be made into a .xml file with operations just like the other two

That's right. That's old indeed... This is the new one, under plain text format ( xml )

I tryed, and changed many query strings, by modifying to db_query ==>  $ smcFunc ['db_query'] ... and others like

mysql_fetch_assoc   ( now is $smcFunc ['db_fetch_assoc'] )
mysql_fetch_row   (now is $smcFunc ['db_fetch_row'] )

But, I don't understand how to call to a subtemplate... My brain will explode !! ...


I'm learning everything about the smf 2.x branch ... Reading all tutorial I find, as well as the smf wiki of developers

Here, I attach the modified file ...
Could someone please help me and tell me what I'm doing wrong here?

Many thanks in advance for helping me.

I don't know about 1.x, but there is no browse_special sub template in the ManageAttachements Template file in 2.0

In 1.x either... It's supposed that template will be created by the mod.

Right, it is created by the mod, instead of using $boarddir/Themes/default/ManageAttachments.template.php you can just use $themedir/ManageAttachments.template.php, also there is a syntax error with your code

syntax error, unexpected 'else' (T_ELSE)

Thanks SychO ...

Yes, me too see that error.

I can't find where is the error...

Do you think it's a permissions issue ? ...

Nice themes are you developing  ;)

permissions ? No

you are adding two functions inside of a function, you have to change the position after to before
Code: [Select]
<search position="after"><![CDATA[
$_SESSION['attachments_to_fix'] = $to_fix;
$_SESSION['attachments_to_fix2'] = $context['repair_errors'];

obExit();
}]]></search>
Code: [Select]
<search position="before"><![CDATA[
$_SESSION['attachments_to_fix'] = $to_fix;
$_SESSION['attachments_to_fix2'] = $context['repair_errors'];

obExit();
}]]></search>

You just need to add a closing curly bracket for the second function

SychO:

I do not know what happened ... Maybe, I confused the file I uploaded.
Here is the correct one, and it has the close brackets in its places.

Sorry for that...

Likewise, it does not work and still giving same error.

Code: [Select]

syntax error, unexpected 'user' (T_STRING), expecting ',' or ')'


No errors on Log Error Admin section...

Maybe, I'm calling any property of 'user' with error ?

Why expecting ',' or ')'   ?

It's just a syntax error, you probably missed a semicolon or something somewhere

Sh@mbles ... Thanks for reply. I did it many times and no error found. Tried on piliapp - stackoverflow - and other sites with a php parsers

For that reason, I think it's a variable or a function specific of SMF 2.0 wich I don't understand yet.

Thanks again ... Yeah, I thinked about a semicolon or something simple but I can't find it !

What does that offer that 2.0’s admin panel doesn’t?
Don’t try to tell me that some power can corrupt a person. You haven’t had enough to know what it’s like.

No good deed goes unpunished / No act of charity goes unresented.

@arantor, I don't think that mod has a search feature

I think what you should do instead is create a checkbox in the search template that specifies you want to search the table that houses the attachments only -- that is if your members actually give their uploads meaningful names and titles. Then, create a function within search.php that only searches that table and presents the results normally. Of course this is just an idea, not a blueprint but that's how i'd approach it rather than creating dedicated template files, etc.

Wouldn't there be permissions issues?  Attachments should honor board permissions, correct?  If you don't have permission to see the board, you shouldn't see the board's attachments.

I continue to be amazed at how “just add a checkbox” conveniently ignores the rest of the actual complexity, and I don’t think solves the problem either.

For some types of  forums, I think the ability to navigate attachments would be extremely helpful. 

This is how I approached it on my forum.  Far from perfect, but functional:
https://www.vguitarforums.com/smf/index.php?topic=24401.0

A nightly batch job updates this post & also puts out a .csv with the same content who want the additional ability to search/navigate in Excel. 

This only works for my forum because the permissions are flat (it's either public or not, & I filter out attachments for "backstage" boards) and because the # of attachments that meet my search criteria (patches) is relatively small (<4000).   

Speaking of big posts, that's a big post...

I mentioned it's NOT a blueprint. Obviously there would be a boat load of coding front and backend. The checkbox idea would be a miniscule template modification.

Yes, with the intent of “reducing work” when in reality it would be better all round (and less work) to not try to modify the search code.

I would like to have that on my site. Where can I get it?  :o

I've been thinking about this.

Limitations:
 - No documentation, as I only really use it internally at the moment. 
 - The install package I've created only works for 2.0.x. 
 - I haven't put licensing info in it, as I wasn't sure I'd distribute it.  It's more a toolbox than a mod. 
 - As noted earlier, "flat" board permissions.
 - As noted earlier, < 4000 attachments suggested.   

If you're OK with these limitations, I'll put it up on Github.  If there is more interest, I'll add documentation.
