UBB Integration for upcomming Threads7

Hi,

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 switched away from .threads a while back after being a faithful user/developer for a long time (threads was the first integration I wrote for PhotoPost back when it only supported vB and itself).

I don't have a current license; but if you'd like to help, I'm sure we could get it updated for you.

If you could post the changed stylenames for users that would be very helpful.

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.

Does the integration work with the new threads still fine?

If so we can easily tweak the stylesheet name changes

up to ubb 6.5.5 I have no bigger problem.

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.

The only differences reported are style class changes so I dont think this would be a hard one to update

No No, the stylesheet changes was made inside V6.x. V7 is in stylesheets total different, but easy to handle.

I start to review photopost/forums/threads.php
I see that you select from w3t_users the following fields:

$username[0] = $results['U_Number']; // userid
$username[1] = $results['U_Username']; // username
$username[2] = $results['U_Email']; // email
$username[3] = $results['U_Password']; // password
$username[4] = $results['U_TempPass']; // temppassword
$username[5] = $results['U_Groups']; // groups
$username[6] = $results['U_TimeOffset']; // timeoffset
$username[7] = $results['U_SessionId']; // session id
$username[8] = $results['U_StyleSheet']; // stylesheet

In Threads7 we have in the ubbt_USERS table the following entries

USER_LOGIN_NAME varchar(64)
USER_DISPLAY_NAME varchar(64)
USER_PASSWORD varchar(32)
USER_MEMBERSHIP_LEVEL varchar(15)
USER_REGISTRATION_EMAIL varchar(50)
USER_REGISTRATION_IP varchar(15)
USER_SESSION_ID varchar(64)
USER_IS_APPROVED varchar(8)
USER_REGISTERED_ON int(11)
USER_IS_BANNED int(1)
USER_IS_UNDERAGE int(1)

The UBB V6 user table is now split in (It use the prefix ubbt_ as default and need to be changed in threads.php on top):

ubbt_USERS
ubbt_USER_DATA
ubbt_USER_GROUPS
ubbt_USER_NOTES
ubbt_USER_PROFILE
ubbt_USER_TITLES

So all needet data for the integration must be pulled from different tables. The stylesheet modification is easy to do, its simple, but the different database layout makes me nervous.

Now here we go a little bit closer. I review the tables and worked out the differences:
$username[0] = $results['USER_ID']; // userid (ubb7)
$username[1] = $results['USER_LOGIN_NAME']; // username (ubb7)
$username[2] = $results['USER_REGISTRATION_EMAIL']; // email (ubb7)
$username[3] = $results['USER_PASSWORD']; // password (ubb7)
$username[4] = $results['U_TempPass']; // temppassword, in UBB7 it is the field USER_TEMPORARY_PASSWORD in table ubbt_USER_PROFILE
$username[5] = $results['U_Groups']; // groups, in UBB7 it is diffentent, see below
$username[6] = $results['U_TimeOffset']; // timeoffset, in UBB7 it is the field USER_TIME_OFFSET in table ubbt_USER_PROFILE
$username[7] = $results['USER_SESSION_ID']; // session id (ubb7)
$username[8] = $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.

Will the new integration be provided for free or will there be a charge? I know you guys have many projects but will it be a high priority?

I would have to talk with Michael on whether we have obtained a copy of UBBThreads 7. I know I dont have one and until we get such software we would currently support the UBB 6.x series

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.

Yeah I would suspect you changed something other than debug setting in global options as that would not break anything
