UBB threads V7 going beta in the next days. Maybe a release this Year
Will be an additional threads integration for V7 available? Please do not change the existing Threads integration vor V6.5x.
The V6 integration only need an adjustment in the stylesheet names wich are changed in 6.4. PP use now some old threads definations that no longer exists in actual version. Maybe no one notice this because you have the old css entrys too in your stylesheets.
I try to discover it, but I delte my old threads archives. the change must be before V6.5. I have all 6.5.x archives and cannot find the differences right now. The only thing: welcome was removed and only used in the installer of threads. I replace welcome with forumdescript.
While I compare my files I see that I replace onbody with forumdescript too. I go deeper in my archives and try to find it.
I must do a search here too. As I remeber I post the differences here long time ago with no answer
If I run Threads7beta I can take a closer look and we will see, what we can do with an integration.
We wait for the beta release 7. I m not a registered beta tester and so I have to wait. The beta should start one week ago but they found that no documentation was ready so back to draw. Maybe one or two weeks.
I fear that the integration doesn't work. The whole system of templates and styles was changed as I read but we will see. I would ask the registered beta tester if they run PP. We will see ....
The beta is up now and I begin to test. In the next day I try to setup a test with Threads7 and PP. For the first time I have the code for the featured Photos Pal box on the portal ready. It base on the old code and need only small modifications. I run the pal against my public PP witch is integrated in ubb v6.5 now. It works very well. I can post the code here or send it as pm.
Next thing will be done later this week. I will do a report.
Now here we go a little bit closer. I review the tables and worked out the differences: $username = $results['USER_ID']; // userid (ubb7) $username = $results['USER_LOGIN_NAME']; // username (ubb7) $username = $results['USER_REGISTRATION_EMAIL']; // email (ubb7) $username = $results['USER_PASSWORD']; // password (ubb7) $username = $results['U_TempPass']; // temppassword, in UBB7 it is the field USER_TEMPORARY_PASSWORD in table ubbt_USER_PROFILE $username = $results['U_Groups']; // groups, in UBB7 it is diffentent, see below $username = $results['U_TimeOffset']; // timeoffset, in UBB7 it is the field USER_TIME_OFFSET in table ubbt_USER_PROFILE $username = $results['USER_SESSION_ID']; // session id (ubb7) $username = $results['U_StyleSheet']; // stylesheet, in UBB7 it is the field USER_STYLE in table ubbt_USER_PROFILE
The U_Groups field doesnt exists any more. There is a new table called ubbt_USER_GROUPS. It has only two columns. The first column is USER_ID and the second column is GROUP_ID. Every row contains the ID of the user and only one group ID. If the user belongs to more then one group there is a next row with the same UserID and the next Group_id he belongs to. In UBB6 we have only one field witch contains all group_id like 1-3-5-6.
Thats the main changes. As I scroll through the script I see lots of queries that all need to be changed.

Here is a preview of the UBBTHREADS 7 Intergration I knocked out yesterday. everything appears to be fine. Can not give a precise release date but we should be able to support it when the product goes gold.
I just finished my installation of Photopost and my UBBThreads 7 website.. It seemed to work great. In playing with the PP settings I did manage to completely blow up the installation by selecting somewhere show debug code. Dropped it to it's knees and I had to start over from the beginning.. I couldn't get it out of the fatal error mode.
Other then that it's using the user system and group settings of the UBBthreads 7 system. Also it does use the stylesheets nicely. Very good representation of colors used by the site.
I just now need to be more familiar with Photopost and setup to maximize presentation and use.
