Author: Gizmo (James of VNC Web Design)

Requirements:
  • Valid UBB.Threads 7.0 install and license


About:
This addon will allow you to create New Post Templates for your forum, these templates will be selectable from a dropdown on the New Topic page, and will appear in the text area where you normally make your post (users would just update the template then click the post button to post their new thread as normal).

Demo:
As it uses the New Topic scripts, there isn't really an ability for a demo; though I do have it on UGN Security on my "Review" forums.

File History
2540 - UBB Post Templates v01 (UBB.PostTemplates-v01.zip) - Released: 05/22/2008 - Initial Release

NOTE
To add more items, simply add additional "option" lines in newpost.tpl and the posttemplate.php language file.

NOTICE
As this modifies script files I've put it as a mod, as it's more than a minor template adjustment.

BTW, if you're looking to "limit" certain ones to certain boards; or even limit templates in general on forums; I have my template change on my site set to:
Code
{if $Board == 1 || $Board == 12 || $Board == 13 || $Board == 21 || $Board == 36 || $Board == 41 || $Board == 47 || $Board == 48}
<tr>
<td class="alt-2" valign="top">
<label for="posttemplate">{$lang.posttemp}</label>
</td>
<td class="alt-1" valign="top">
<select name="posttemplate" class="form-select" onchange="pull_template(); return false">
<option value="" selected="selected">{$lang.select}</option>
{if $Board == 36} <option value="{$lang.one_body}">{$lang.one_sub}</option>{/if}
{if $Board == 13} <option value="{$lang.two_body}">{$lang.two_sub}</option>{/if}
{if $Board == 13} <option value="{$lang.three_body}">{$lang.three_sub}</option>{/if}
{if $Board == 47} <option value="{$lang.four_body}">{$lang.four_sub}</option>{/if}
{if $Board == 12 || $Board == 13 || $Board == 21 || $Board == 47 || $Board == 48} <option value="{$lang.five_body}">{$lang.five_sub}</option>{/if}
{if $Board == 41} <option value="{$lang.six_body}">{$lang.six_sub}</option>{/if}

</select>
</td>
</tr>
{/if}


Top if statement limits it to those boards, then the ones in the select area limit which are in which forums.

here you go wink...

The dropdown shown selects the code; then it outputs into the text area; pretty self explanatory.

love your mod, so i went and made it a little more flexible (note: this is for 7.3.1):

1) no need to edit templates/newpost.tpl, because i just append to $iconselect
2) language file wordlets changed to specify
a) valid forums for each template
b) valid user groups for each template
3) moved all of the markup building into scripts/newpost.inc.php

Mod follows:

open scripts/newpost.inc.php

find:
PHP Code
$iconselect = $html -> icon_select();
if (
$is_gallery) $iconselect = "";


add below it:
PHP Code
 // Check to see if there are any post templates applicable for this forum
$posttemplate = "";
if (
$ubbt_lang['NUM_POST_TEMPLATES']) {

// Gonna need to get the user groups
$sth = $dbh->do_query("SELECT GROUP_ID FROM {$config['TABLE_PREFIX']}USER_GROUPS WHERE USER_ID={$user['USER_ID']}");
$groups = array();
while(
$result = $dbh->fetch_array($sth)) {
$groups[] = $result['GROUP_ID'];
}

// Check to see if this forum is enabled for each template,
// then check if the group(s) apply
for($i=1; $i <= $ubbt_lang['NUM_POST_TEMPLATES']; $i++) {
$forumok = false;
if(
$ubbt_lang['SUB_'.$i.'_FORUMS'] != "") {
$forumok = in_array($Board,explode(',',$ubbt_lang['SUB_'.$i.'_FORUMS']));
} else {
$forumok = true;
}
// Forums good, now check on groups
if ($forumok) {
$groupok = false;
if(
$ubbt_lang['SUB_'.$i.'_GROUPS']) {
$pulldowngroups = explode(',',$ubbt_lang['SUB_'.$i.'_GROUPS']);
foreach(
$pulldowngroups as $g) {
if (
in_array($g,$groups)) {
$groupok = true;
}
}
} else {
$groupok = true;
}
}
// Add to template, if we have something
if ($forumok and $groupok) {
// 1st time thru - add the header crapola
if ($posttemplate == '') {
$posttemplate = '<tr><td class="alt-2" valign="top"><label for="posttemplate">';
$posttemplate .= $ubbt_lang['POST_TEMPLATE'] . '</label></td><td class="alt-1" valign="top">';
$posttemplate .= '<select name="posttemplate" class="form-select" onchange="pull_template(); return false;">';
$posttemplate .= '<option value="" selected="selected">' . $ubbt_lang['SELECT'] . '</option>';
}
$posttemplate .= '<option value="' . $ubbt_lang['SUB_'.$i.'_BODY'] . '">' . $ubbt_lang['SUB_'.$i] . '</option>';
}
}
// Finish off the template, if it has some good stuff
if ($posttemplate) {
$posttemplate .= '</select></td></tr>';
}
}
// Glom this puppy onto the iconselect laugh
$iconselect .= $posttemplate;


Save the file

File: languages/english/posttemplate.php (new format)
PHP Code

<?php
$ubbt_lang
['POST_TEMPLATE'] = 'Post Template:';
$ubbt_lang['SELECT'] = '--- Select ---';
$ubbt_lang['NUM_POST_TEMPLATES'] = '1';
$ubbt_lang['SUB_1'] = 'Fishing Report';
$ubbt_lang['SUB_1_FORUMS'] = '2,3,7,69';
$ubbt_lang['SUB_1_GROUPS'] = '1,2,3';
$ubbt_lang['SUB_1_BODY'] = 'Body of water:
General location(s):
Date:
Time:
Shore or boat:
Water temp:
Depth fished: (surface, mid, bottom):
Max depth:
Methods: (cast, troll, etc.)
Lures used:
Bait used:
Tide:
Species caught:
Total # of fish caught:
Fish weights:
Fish lengths:
Kept or released:
Gear used:
'
;
?>



key things to note:
1) NUM_POST_TEMPLATES is the number of templates total
2) Every template has
a) SUB_x -- pulldown descriptor
b) SUB_x_FORUMS -- comma separated list of forums. (blank is any forum)
c) SUB_x_GROUPS -- comma separated list of groups. (blank is any group)
d) SUB_x_BODY -- the template itself

Final note, i just copy/pasted Giz javascript function into ubb_jslib.js at the bottom.

Ty Giz for the good start on a great mod! smile

Lol I'm glad you of all people like it smile...

I'd like to eventually see it as being db driven and int he CP; but that's a little above me with where OOP is concerned...

I figured, I like some structure, hell even here would be great, as then users would have a defined list for some sort of conformity...

I'd also like to someday see it as a popular feature enough to be stock code, as I can really see usage at just about any forum wink...
