View Full Version : Release/Install Package

Make sure that once you import via GARS import system, you MUST edit the new Release Module Set and then edit the release module, making sure each custom field is assigned correctly. Its also important to know that with GARS RC4 series, upgrading will dump your release phrases and templates, so you'll have to re import this package afterword.

This package gives you new custom fields, templates, modules and module sets to transform a forum into a software release/install system almost identical to the one found at vbulletin.org (but with some subtle differences).

475

One of the key differences is GARS built in marked module and manager. This module takes full advantage of that system so that a user can click install/uninstall to mark/unmark this thread. Those that are 'marked' can be viewed by the thread author, admin and moderators.

473

To do so, just click the install count to be taken to the manager (marked.php) where the user can quickly select their releases and view who clicked install. This also gives them the ability to quickly send an update email to select users.

474

To install, download the zip. Upload the contents of the forum folder into your forums. Then go to your admincp->gars->import/export->import and browse to the release.xml file located with this zip.
Once imported, you MUST edit the new modules in the newly created module set. Do this by clicking the Release set link, then the release module and click save.

Awesome!

Thats all i can say, i have been playing with this and its a great, i love it.

I do have one request, with the image uploading custom field, can you please intergrate an image resizer, so if a user uploads an image thats too big it will resize it down to a set dimension? That would really be useful.

Regards,

Felix, did you re-edit your release modules in your module set and resave them?

I think I did, however I am not 100% sure what you mean. I went to:

Admincp -> GARS -> Modules -> Edited Release Module Set

Under Header, I edited Release, and saved.
Under Right of Content, I edited Marked, Tools, Table of Contents, and saved.

Now, after I did this, I edited the posts of the mods / hacks / skins to input the vb version, mod version, and the selections from:

EDIT (HERE IS A UPDATE)

Now, I created a new release. Everything worked fine. So, apparently it won't allow old post to be edited / updated.

Felix - Silly question, but the module doesnt appear twice does it? Also, have you double checked the custom field? Maybe the values have been doubled up?

The module does not appear twice. I have checked the custom fields and all are correct and have been saved. I do however have Three different "Tools" modules, all of which contain a difference number of templates in them. Here is what they are:

Tools (1) : GARS_tools,GARS_mod_container,GARS_mod_container
Tools (2) : GARS_tools,GARS_mod_container
Tools (3) : GARS_tools

You need to download the package again (I updated it for RC4d). Instead of importing the release.xml file, import the release_templates_only.xml file. Everytime you upgrade GARS, it dumps custom templates.

I found a small but nice bug in the releases module.

Enter a new release and call the title: RELEASE 1.0
SAVE it.

Then view the new thread and click on EDIT inside of the thread.
Change title to RELEASE 2.0

Take a look at the forumoverview now and you will see that there is still RELEASE 1.0 shown.

Now view the thread again and click on RELEASE TOOLS (bar above thread) and then on EDIT RELEASE. Change the title here to RELEASE 2.0

Now its working and on the overview page 2.0 is showing up.

Looks like if you edit the first thread this is not the same like making it with edit release.

The mark function is not working for me since upgrading to the newest version of GARS and this mod.

Clicking the install button, example:
http://www.atcards.com/forums/marked.php?do=install&t=3349
takes me to the manager (marked.php) and does not allow the mark.

Clicking uninstall, example:
http://www.atcards.com/forums/marked.php?do=uninstall&t=2985
also takes me to the manager and does not allow me to un-mark.

I am not trying to argue with you but it does not work for me this way using 3.6 or any of the previous versions of vb I have ever used.
I have to use AJAX inline title edit or the "Edit Thread" option under the "Thread Tools" drop down menu for the change to show up in forumdisplay.
Editing the thread title via editing the first post in the thread only reflects the change in the post itself while leaving it unchanged in the forumdisplay.

If it is different for you I wonder why? I am using the stock forumdisplay templates, as well as all other templates that would affect this. :confused:

Edit
I found this on vb.com:
http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showthread.php?p=1176430
Specifically this post:

This could be a question of caching or soemthing like that but I can do this as often as I want.
I edit the first post of a thread (sure as admin!) and it updates on the forumdisplay.

Background:
It does not happen very often that you have to change a topic of a thread but for my release forum this is a nice feature.
With AJAX in a normal vB forum this is easy. You double click on a thread and change the topic.
In the releases area this is not working cause the actual version does not support AJAX.
This means you have to open the thread, edit it, save it etc.
As you all know if you run a release forum this can happen very often.

This about the topic: software v.1.0
Hours or day later v.1.1 is released and you want to update the topic.
This is why I need this EDIT or AJAX function for the releases module (better for the complete GARS system).
You can see on the first look if you have the latest version already on your board when you're able to change the topic.
Sure it can be done using the THREAD TOOLS way but if you have to do it for a few posts this results in a clicking orgy.

Geek it would be very very nice if you could try to implement vBs AJAX technology into the GARS product. This would solve this issue and makes the usage more comfortable for all.

The Geek

Hi,

I seemed to have found a problem since upgrading to 2.1 of GARS and this Release addon.

Everytime I try to access any forum which is setup to use the Release addon I get this error.

This appears at the top of the page:
Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /geek/gars/includes/gars_class_list.php on line 212

And then I also get a vBulletin Error Message, which is this:
Digital Port Message
Unable to add cookies, header already sent.
File: /home/digitalp/public_html/digital/includes/class_core.php
Line: 3023

I've tried reuploading the addon, and the latest GARS but this error still appears. Even clearing cached modules, etc.

One page you can view this error is here (http://www.digitalport.co.uk/digital/forumdisplay.php?f=108).

All other modules work fine apart from this one. I just tested the Links addon with no problems, at all.

Any way of fixing this problem would be appreciated.

If I need to prefix a release I add it manually in the title but mmmh yes I am the only one using my internal release hack so its easy for me :D

Why not use a custom filed for the prefix? That way, users can sort by the field using the new filter method?

Otherwise, its the GARS_newthread and GARS_editpost templates you want to check into.

HTHs!

thanks yeah I've been going through all the templates trying to intergrate both, I've got everything working cept stick threads, search file tables to align, and the options issue above.

My confusion on where the item was is because the releases plugin templates are only _pb _newthread,

I need to renew my members area, as soon as I can afford it to get your new version of gars..

hoping next check .. I never did or was able to use the cart system, maybe your next version when I can afford it.

HTHs!

how would I setup custom field for the prefix? I renewed my licence, hoping it willfix bugs I've been having. The gars_options won't let me add any custom fields, or at least they arn't showing up if I add them.

The Geek
01-20-2007, 03:11 PM
The custom fields will show up as long as they have been assigned to a type. No need to edit the templates. Create the custom field, edit the types and assign them accordingly. For the filter option, the custom field must be a select box and the 'filter by this field' option needs to be ticked in the type.

HTHs!

It's Beta
Template edits etc....

Everyone else has the check boxes. Mine is words with lines through them. In the GARS release module it is set as check boxes. Any ideas oh what would cause this?

Also I removed the old one and created new ones and still no change.

You need to use the gars importer to re-import the add on xmls to restore your additional templates and phrases. When you do so, make sure that you tick the phrases and templates only option.

Just installed, and been looking through it quite a bit. Great mod, however it has a few issues.

1. When you click to see who installed, it doesn't show their IM icons in the IM column, same thing with reputation.

Is there a fix for this?

2. No images? (That's ok though, I made mine from my styles psd's)

Other than that, I've had no issues, thank you

The Geek

Edit the release modules settings in the release module set (on the showthread page). Make sure that 'prevent download...' setting is blank for users to download without hitting install first.

Remove the options by editing the release type and unsetting the custom field for 'options/release options'.
You may also want to edit the GARS_release_pb accordingly.

Update:

Officially installed and I LOVE IT! Thanks sooooooo much! Took me a while to get it working but that was my own boo-boos (Not editing the modules correctly *blush*)

I do have a suggestion tho... Is there a way to hmmm how do I word this... to make the GARS_Release_pb template automatically read from the Custom Modules. Like I changed the name of the Custom's to fit my needs... IE Mod Version to File Type... but I had to go in and edit the Gars_Release_pb template as well for the changes to reflect on site. Took me a while to figure that out LOL I don't mind making the changes manually... was just a thought for a future release =0)

Also... might wanna make a note in original post "Install/uninstall etc graphics not included" LOL My dummy butt spent quite a while trying to fix the red x's thinking I had done something wrong *blush* Dah me hehe

And one last thing (sorry) When no one has clicked on "install" then when you go to that marked.php?do=show&t=57 (or whatever) it messes up the tables and makes the whole page distorted. If the number is anything above 0 tho, pages are perfect. Is that a prob with that page or am I doing something wrong?

Anyways, thanks again for such a great Mod!!! This really does feel too good to be true... deeply appreciative!

Always, Bree

Hi Geek, I'm working on customizing a few things and am stuck on one part of it for the moment......

Just to let you know though, in the GARS_tools template, there's something screwy with the subscribe/unsubscribe code as it doesn't change to Unsubscribe.

Anyway, what I'm looking for is the template that the "Release Tools", "Search this Release", "Rate Release", "Display Modes" menus are in. Where exactly do I go to edit these options?

Edit the release modules settings in the release module set (on the showthread page). Make sure that 'prevent download...' setting is blank for users to download without hitting install first.

Remove the options by editing the release type and unsetting the custom field for 'options/release options'.
You may also want to edit the GARS_release_pb accordingly.

HTHs!

Question - how does one do this? I'm experiencing an issue whereby none of the options are saving when editing a post, or posting a new thread ina 'Release' forum.

I did what the above post says to do, but there are no options like those mentioned anywhere, just the following:

Release #55
Position
Cache MethodThe method that GARS will use to refresh the module data if enabled
OrderThe order the module will appear in this section (a lower number means it will appear earlier

Settings
vB release custom field
Modification version custom field
Last updated custom fieldThis is a hidden value. The custom field should be a whole number type
Tick Box Custom Field
If you want to automatically create the default fields for this module, click here (note that this will create NEW custom fields!

Then edit the one labeled Marked. Scroll down to this area labeled: Prevent download without marked text

What ever text you place in this box will show until the user clicks on install. You can just copy and paste this in to the box if you want:

You must first click <b>Install</B> before you can download this release.

Find this:

Replace with this:

Find this:

Replace with this:

$post['pagetext_html'] = $post['pagetext'];


GARS was not coded to show the entire first post on subsequent pages of a thread, so if these latest changes do not work, you'll need to try something else or get a coder to help you.

Not sure as I have not gone through people's add-on submissions to verify their workings, but rather treat them as separate submissions like those on vBorg, so all I can tell you is that "last update" is $post[gars_vb_last] in the GARS_release_pb template and in the /geek/gars/mods/display/vb_release.php file is the following line that sets the $post[gars_vb_last] variable in the GARS_release_pb template:

$post['gars_vb_last'] = ($this->data['gars' . $settings['last']]>100 ? vbdate($this->vb->options['dateformat'], $this->data['gars' . $settings['last']], true) : "n/a");

Perhaps $this->data['gars' . $settings['last']] is incorrect, which might be tied to the 'Last updated custom field' setting for the release module.

This is bullshit, I mean I come here hearing good stuff about this and pay almost 60 bucks on GARS (+ Branding fee + 1 year worth of updates) and it's not working and now I won't be able to fix this, until after those two hacks are released. God dammit.:mad:

Payment was for GARS not add-ons. Add-ons, especially ones not created by me, are treated similar to vBorg add-ons, i.e., no official support, but if you check this thread, you'll see that I have tried to help even though I did not write this add-on. That said, this site is using this add-on and it seems to be working okay, so it would be more helpful if you posted the problem you are having instead of a rant, as perhaps me or someone else could try to help you.

Original GARS works fine (im using vb 3.7)

But when I check mark a field or put in a value into a box, it won't show up (for the release hack).

Morgan

Try the following:

ACP -> GARS -> Modules -> click the release module set -> click the release link (if not present, add the release module, then click the release link) -> make sure those settings are correct, click save even if things look correct.
ACP -> GARS -> Types -> click the release module type -> under Custom Fields tick the boxes for the custom fields to display, click save even if things look correct.

The problem is that custom fields don't even showup and for the "vB Version: ","Mod Version: "... whatever u put in those fields it doesn't show also

Morgan

The text "vB Version" is hard coded in the GARS_release_pb template. I'm really not sure why you are having all these problems. You might try uninstalling this add-on (not GARS itself) and then reinstall, following these steps:

Open your Release Module Set by clicking on the Release Module Set via the ACP -> GARS -> Modules.
Click the Release module link (it will be in the Inside Header section).
Assign the correct custom profile fields in the drop down menu.
Click the Save button (even if things are showing correctly).
Fine tune the release type afterwards via the ACP -> GARS -> Types.

further to my last - Is it not possible to create your own fields instead of using

vB Version:
Mod Version:
Released:
Installs:
Last Update:

Id like to choose my own titles such as

Website
Company name
Date Found
etc

Ive tried to have a look for the phrases to reword them, but to no avail.

Also, how can I get the web address box to show, so all they have to do is click on it? Ive tried playing around with custom settings, but to no avail.

I really would appreciate any help :)

powerful_rogue
08-30-2008, 09:44 PM
I managed to find and alter the text in the actual template file :) If someoone could help me with just a couple more points it would be really appreciated!

Ive added a screenshot to make it easier!

1)Where it says "Enter website" - How can I turn this into a proper link using the www button? - At present its just text and not clickable.

Would it be possible to link the website field from above upto snap so it displays a screen shot as well, failing that, give the poster an option to upload a pic?

I really hope some of this is possible as then it would be ideal for my site!

Ive had a play around and managed to get it to display the "web address" button. Is it possible to only make this display if a URL is entered? Im guessing i'll need to add a conditional somewhere?

I created a new custom field called "Freebie Link" and was hoping it would display this indtead of the term "Web address" but for some reason it wont budge :confused:

One more thing I would really like if possible and im sure there is a way!

vB Version
Mod Version etc

Is there a way to connect this to the "A-Z" bar, so when a user clicks on "A", it will display all the threads where the custom field "vB version" starts with "A"

I know this wont make much sense as vb versions are numbers, however on my forum I have renamed vB Version to Company!

Morgan
09-02-2008, 02:02 PM
For custom fields look at the custom_fields.php file in the /geek/gars/mods/display directory and note that you can set whatever template you want to use in the custom fields settings but clicking the custom fields link. For the letter bar taht would require looking through the code to see how the ltr variable is used to order by title.

Is it possible to set a conditon when marked immediatly after

button with any functions?

I have tried some edits of gars_marked_main right under $infoblock
with $installed or $post[gars_marked]

Any ideas how to get this working?

Custom coding really falls outside the realm of support and is not typically offered, especially for larger requests, but you might try editing the /geek/gars/mods/display/marked.php file, adding to $bits whatever else you want to show.

I will try to edit the php hardcodes for some ways to fit my needs.

First install on test-server was fine.
Now I have a problem with install on productive server.
Clicking on the link with 0 or 1 install to see who have installed
there is a white page with the following message:

I went through all modules and safed everything what is editable.
What's wrong with it?

Thanx.

Set a release type to a forum in the ACP -> GARS -> Settings and for the module set of the release type, add the marked module.

Cocko
11-11-2008, 11:38 AM
All settings were set as they should to be.
Mark and unmark / install and uninstall is working.
In Settings menu the forum is "assigned" to relase,
in release type marked module is right of content.

Checked all cache directories and cache files for 0777.

I tried a new install of release package after deleting all release entries.
Same issue. When clicking on number of installs blank white page with
the following message in first line occurs:

marked module not assigned to a forum that I can see.

On test server there are no problems, settings equal.
I have absolutely no ideas..

What else can I do?

Cocko
11-11-2008, 06:36 PM
Complete de-installed and deleted, checked phpMyAdmin database is clean and re-upload and re-install GARS. No way.
Added a new Type and Set with release. Went through all settings. No way.
Registered new Modules with other names but same .php included. No way.
ACP>GARS>Tools>Clean Orphans and other tools tested. No Way.

Allways the same message for these links /vb3/marked.php?do=show&t=6962

marked module not assigned to a forum that I can see.

Articles, Tutorials, Review are working fine. I'm really frustrated.

Only on test server I edited the /settings/marked.php - w/o any problems.

No, where I have this issue the marked.php is the original one,
reuploaded several times.

Please look at my previous posts what I have tried to get this working.

Are there any chances for debugging procedures?
Which database fields are altered by GARS, if any, except its own?

Cocko
11-12-2008, 11:44 AM
One Step forward.
It must be something with XCache (installed v. 1.2.2)

In XCache Admin Clearing field var#0 (only this field)
will let me view /vb3/marked.php?do=show&t=6962 once, not more.
Viewing the same link a second time, it fails again /w the above issue.

How the hell can this get fixed?

Some more information that maybe could help.
XCache writes with first click at above link "GARS Settings" in var#0
With second click the "GARS Settings" is unchanged. Sounds reasoned.
Checking the contents of this fied against mysql is to much heavy for me.
>> a:27:{s:6:"forums";a:2:{i:115;i:2 << and so on.

Morgan
11-14-2008, 04:20 PM
Try temporarily turning XCache off in the vBulletin config.php file and see if that has any effect:

// ****** DATASTORE CACHE CONFIGURATION *****
// Here you can configure different methods for caching datastore items.
// vB_Datastore_Filecache - to use includes/datastore/datastore_cache.php
// vB_Datastore_APC - to use APC
// vB_Datastore_XCache - to use XCache
// vB_Datastore_Memcached - to use a Memcache server, more configuration below
// $config['Datastore']['class'] = 'vB_Datastore_Filecache';

Cocko
11-14-2008, 04:34 PM
Of course, w/o XCache it's running.
When I had read in a post in this forum before I thought XCache is not a problem with GARS.

Also when I disable xcache varsize (xcache.ini > xcache.var_sitze = 0M) it's ok with GARS and release.

What I am asking is how the release add-on can be fixed to run with XCache?

Morgan
11-14-2008, 04:55 PM
Sorry, I'm not familiar with the workings of XCache but maybe you can find something more about XCache on vbulletin.com or via Google.

Cocko
11-14-2008, 05:31 PM
Since my post #215 two days ago I have tried to find out what causes issues with XCache and
any php scripts and especially with vBulletin add-ons. But nothing at Google and vb.com either.

Resuming my posts in this thread the last days the given support answers - not more than once
a day - could not help.

As I figured out that vBulletin 3.7.x runs perfectly with XCache, GARS release has obviously issues
with XCache maybe with other accelerators too and in fact this should be clear before purchasing GARS.

Morgan
11-17-2008, 05:19 PM
If it is a problem with the marked.php file, then it would be good to know what in the marked.php file is causing XCache to become unhappy. This could be done by placing various echo statements in the marked.php file to find out why $forumids isn't being set.

Cocko
11-17-2008, 09:12 PM

It should appear before this line:
