Hi, I'd like to ask for customized modules.
Right now there are 4 modules available but I think
geek gazettes customers with php know how could
have made modules for their own.

Are there some more out i.e. latest profiles or any
kind of usercp informations (last visit, unread pm's).

Thanx for assistance.

Correct, GAZ comes with four default modules:

Text Block: This module will allow you to display static text including html and bbcode (example in right hand column here (http://www.thevbgeek.com/newsletter.php))

Info Block: This module will display text you type in or show the text entered in the issue message (example is top welcome row here (http://www.thevbgeek.com/newsletter.php))

Statistics Block: This module will display site statistics (example in right hand column here (http://www.thevbgeek.com/newsletter.php))

Thread Block: This module will allow you to configure a list of threads to display (the five other blocks here (http://www.thevbgeek.com/newsletter.php) are from the thread block)


The thread block allows you to choose how you want to order threads, and whether you want that ordering to be descending (highest to lowest) or ascending (lowest to highest):

The latest created
The latest replies
The most replies
The most views
Random




You can place blocks in the following positions for HTML (center is the only position for Plain Text):

Top
Left
Center
Right
Bottom

You can use each module more than one time, but if your newsletter has any other information that cannot be displayed by using one of the default modules, a custom module would need to be coded. For additional statistics or other blocks not included in GAZ, you'd need to add custom modules.

If you want to add other modules, you would need to know PHP, understand the code of the default modules, and be familiar with the vB tables so you could code a module that pulls the information you want from the vB tables and displays the information on screen, while being in a format like the default modules so GAZ understands the new module.

IIRC there are no GAZ add-ons available on this site, but maybe someone with custom modules will share them with you.

I believe that you could have a section for custom add-ons, and people could vote for the best ones, like the mods section from vbulletin.org?

It would be great for the community and could improve sales for you guys.

Right now there aren't any customized GAZ modules in add-ons area.

I am not a coder and try to help myself with vba cmps modules changing
to GAZ until now with less success.

That's why I started this thread, hoping that some coders have made
some extra modules such as


last visit
unread pm's
latest X members
...

Doesn't the statistics block already provide those??? It seems to on my site...

I do agree having more blocks would be nice, maybe I'll sit down and write one when I get some time! :)

Only the last "one" of registered users is shown on stats module.

What I ask for is

the last i.e. 10 Members (usergroup based)
number of unread pm's for each gaz receiver
last visit for each gaz receiver


a couple of cmps modules have equal contents, maybe you are able
to setup and modify that modules to gaz?

We desperately need some modules;

Can anyone help? I could donate something and know that others will.

For example:
Vblog module

I will try to learn how to code them, but it looks hard to me ;)

Just so I'm clear on what's available, there are the 4 modules included, but no additional modules have been contributed by the people smarter than me yet? :D

The four modules described in post two are the only modules available to date.

It's a real real shame that more modules haven't been created ;-)
