Ever wonder how many posts you need to get up to the next rank, or what those team icons mean? With this mod, all users have to do to find out this information is to click their (or anyone else's) pips or team icons in the topic view and they will get a descriptive popup.

The box tries to autosize, but I have too many ranks/team icons for it to show them all. I have about 30 ranks. lol... Some of my people post like mad, so I needed more ranks for them to attain. :D

I could give you a screenshot, but it wouldn't show all the ranks that I have as I would have to scroll down and get a second screen shot to show them all.:lol:

OK, updated to version 1.0.1. New in this version:

  • If you have a lot of ranks or team icons, you should now get a scrollbar on the popup
  • Fixed issues with the ranks or team icons images not showing up
  • Added links on the rank and group names to the member list filtered to show members in that rank/group

To upgrade, just upload the new files and re-import the hook. Be sure to do a hard refresh in your browser to reload the new javascript file.

Would like to have some admin options, however: It shows groups that aren't allowed to post or in some cases even view the forum, like banned and bots, but I don't want them listed or displayed. Would be nice to be able to turn them on or off. It shows a placeholder if there is no icon associated with the group or rank - would rather it just be blank. Otherwise it looks unfinished (which means I will end up getting an icon for it, even through I don't want one, simply to make it look complete). Would REALLY like to be able to add some text description to the display, to explain better what the ranks mean, not just the pip count. For example, my board promotes members to a special group after XXX posts, but the display only shows the icon, not the reason this group is listed.

Thanks. Got it installed easily and it works.

This is a nice hook, thank you. :)

Just wanted to mention how awesome this hook is! You did a great job and I really appreciate it!



Glad you guys like it :)

I suppose I could add a setting for this, if I decide to ever update this hook.

That's not right, it only shows those groups that have team icons set. Check those groups that you are seeing a placeholder for and make sure they don't have a team icon.

You'd be best off hard-coding those descriptions, to make them be something you could set in the ACP would require this small hook to become a full application, it's never been a feature anyone's asked for in the 4 years or so I've been doing this mod.

I had to create an icon, then manually insert the URL for a team icon into the group to get rid of the placeholder. The boxes were blank previously. Same with a user rank that had no pips or icon to show - 0 to 10 posts - I had to create a pip for it to avoid the placeholder display. Works now, but with groups I DIDN'T want showing, and that had no team icons previously. And yes, I recached.

Just out of interest, the other area that a forum postbit is used, where this mod would be useful is inside tracker. Can it be modified to work there also please?



I will see if I can add that, not sure about it since not everyone has the Tracker installed, so I don't know how this hook might behave differently for those folks. I'll put it on my ToDo list for the next version, to at least look into it.

I don't believe I suggested recaching. :unsure:

I honestly don't understand what it is you're telling me, can you please post a link to your site so I can see what your site is doing with this hook? Get rid of any 'placeholder' images you might have set up.
