Hooks and Plugins

Simple hook that makes use of IP.Board 3.1.3+'s new hovercard functionality to trigger the topic preview on hover rather than clicking the image.



This is a free and unsupported hook.

Any thoughts on updating this for 3.2 ?

No we won't update it for 3.2.




Any reason why not? I still cant believe that IPB is lacking in the preview hover. I thought it was common practice now in forums.

Nothing more frustrating then having to click into threads, or as in 3.2, clicking a buttion and waiting for the preview to load.

We have already included a different topic preview in 3.2, this hook was only a test Matt made to experiment some things and he never intended to support/update it for future versions.


I believe Matt said anyone can take it and upgrade it so if someone wants to go ahead is welcome, I'll double check with him to be sure thought. Edited by tera

Maybe I missed it, but I was not seeing a topic hover preview in 3.2 after I upgraded my site to it. There is a clickable preview in the form of a small down arrow to the right of the topic titles though.

I dont mean to be rude, but why do IPB keep the topic preview button? Why cant you drop it and go ahead with the topic preview hover?

Previewing a topic is supposed to be a quick option to see if you want to read it or not. I dont want to have to start pressing buttons waiting for it to pop up.

Maybe its a case that you dont want to copy other software, but topic preview hover I believe is an essential part of a users experience.

Please please reconsider adding this as a proper feature.

The opening topic preview is not as handy because it can only viewed in thread listings whereas a popup would be accessible in additional areas such as the board index. I think this should be updated for 3.2.x if not included by default.



.....was asked.... have done so....
bit of a problem here as the same template this hook calls is actually now used in the click...
which is why it looks so horrid on a 3.2 board.
also loaded up js that ipb already loads everywhere now.
packaging it, will attach right here.... had to duplicate the template and make a module to call it rather than the click one to make it look right in a hover popup(...it WAS updated lol, just not with the desired markup haha >.< )

Hi Marcher,



What does your updated version do exactly?



I'm still using the the original hook and have no problems with it on 3.2.3



a.
doesn't load the same template... looks like a sane 3.2 popup(eg, skinning)
B.
doesn't load up javascript that is already globally loaded in 3.2 that was not in 3.1.4(double popup issue cause)
that is it.

Matt - could I draw your attention to http://community.invisionpower.com/topic/370356-must-have-admin-hooks/#entry2316344

Installed it on 3.3.4 but see it only works on the threads themselves. Is there any way it can work on IP's Recent Topics sidebar? Or even with one of these:
