Re: Hook requests

Oh, right. Sorry. Just read this post.

More info about the extension system can be found in our blog or by searching these forums.

Re: Hook requests

One for appending links to $adnav_links would be handy if you're making a really large extension which uses several pages for options/management. (A gallery perhaps, or a death ray. But that wouldn't really need more than a fire button. Anways.)

All my other "hook needs" have been solved by workarounds, by using some hook nearby. (adding content to index.php above the forum listing for example) But I must say that it overall looks awesome. smile

You can use fn_generate_navlinks_end to add navlinks.

Oops, should've mentioned that I meant the navigation for the admin pages. roll

ca_admin_menu_new_sublink in common_admin.php ?

Using that one will make the links appear in the very beginning of the navbar, unless I'm wrong about how arrays work in PHP.

Re: Hook requests

Look into the array_insert function? wink

Re: Hook requests

Some hooks in include/email.php would be nice for things like secure SMTP support and modifying email headers.

EDIT: Well, not secure SMTP as that seems to be in tongue But still, put some hooks in there.

Re: Hook requests

Hi,
A hook in place of the "Online" stat to be able to display them as we want.

For example : changing the color of a given group of users in the "Online" list of users.

i think there is nothing for that arround the line 92 of the footer.php .

Kind Regards.


may be something like that could be used wink

Forgive me if I'm wrong, but doesn't $array[] = 'value' add an element at the very end of the array? So even if I put my "Death Ray Control Panel?" at, let's say, position 3 (which I fail to see how it would be possible, cause there's no 0, 1 or 2), then adding elements would put them in position 4, 5, and so on... Honestly, I'm far from a PHP Guru, but this is how I always have thought arrays work. smile

Re: Hook requests

Arrays in PHP aren't really like in other languages. You can insert values everywhere you want.

Too bad the array_insert() function doesn't exist, but it should be easy enough to implement. Something like this probably:

function array_insert(&$array, $offset, &$insertvals)
{
    array_splice($array, $offset, 0, $insertvals);
}

Another thing I'd like to note is that there seems to be no way to add a section (?action=*) to profile.php. You'd have to add a new page to do so. Not very friendly for simple extensions wanting to have a user setting.
A hook around line 1118 in profile.php would do for that.

Re: Hook requests

array_insert() exists in functions.php, so it's there. smile

//
// Inserts $element into $input at $offset
//
function array_insert(&$input, $offset, $element)
{
    // Out of bounds checks
    if ($offset > count($input))
        $offset = count($input);
    else if ($offset < 0)
        $offset = 0;

    array_splice($input, $offset, 0, 0);
    $input[$offset] = $element;
}

But unless I'm totally wrong (this time to), this won't insert an element at position 5 if there's only 3 elements in the array.

Re: Hook requests

Oh.

And it will insert it there, it'll just appear as element #4 because there is not actual #4. Logical, I'd say.

Yes, please. In our case, we want to display upcoming birthdays and events/shows.

Re: Hook requests

vt_post_header_load - Line 249 viewtopic.php after "require PUN_ROOT.'header.php';" - ESSENTIAL - Poll mod, all the content for the poll to be displayed needs to be put immediatly after the header, as is convention on every modification ever written.

hd_announcement - Line 255 header.php after "// END SUBST - <!-- pun_alert -->" - RECOMMENDED - There is a hook for just about every other template type, why not annoucements?

vf_row_loop - Line 215 viewforum.php before "++$pun_page['item_count'];" - QUESTIONABLE - In viewforum the post row loop has no hook inside the loop. I realize loops are not exactly the best play for hooks, but its requires a lot of parsing later on if are not able to change post attributes 'on the fly'

Edit: Sorry Smartys

I enjoy pie :)

Re: Hook requests

may i request a hook for handling external authentication ?

Most succesfull forums like vbulletin and invision power board handle external authentication quite well. I particulary like invision boards authentication system.

Most of the time, a forum is supposed to work with another cms like a blog, or a portal like mambo etc...

but integrating punbb with other systems is really painfull....hope this situation will change with future releases.

Re: Hook requests

gautam.madeshia: We tried to place certain hooks specifically to make that easy. Could you look through the code and tell me where you think more hooks are needed?
Oh, and I disagree that integration is painful, although I certainly think 1.3 improves it tongue

Re: Hook requests

Userlist - "Sort results by" drop-down menu

Since additional columns can be displayed, it would nice to be able to sort on these additional columns.

Re: Hook requests

A suggestion from me: a hook in admin/users.php to allow handling a new mass action.

may be the hooks for bbcode are not included in the new parser version ?
so your request seems to be legitimate

Re: Hook requests

No, there are going to be hooks in the new parser, that's part of why it's the new parser tongue

Re: Hook requests

A hook in functions.php that allow you to add new functions in functions.php

I found a lot of hooks there. But not one that allowed you to add a new functions

('fn_new_function') or something like that. At the end of functions.php

I think it's needed if someone need a function for their stuff then they can just add it there
