Some questions

Postby Yoda » Fri Dec 21, 2012 12:08 pm

So I noticed the forum is heavily customised for football. The Next match widget is cool and so is the latest blog one.
Being someone who had ran a phpBB football forum in the past, I dont think these mods are available readily.
Plus I see some posts made by MatchBot and FCBayernNews. Are these done manually or some script is employed.
Plus, the Wordpress Integration seems seemless, which was baffling to say the least when I attempted it.

So, basically I am asking MUTU to tell me about the mods used in here, if thats not too much to ask :mrgreen:
Fan of
Arsenal - Bayern


Uli Hoeness -" Let's say we charged €300. We'd get €2m more in income, but what's €2m to us? but the difference between €104 and €300 is huge for the fan. We do not think the fans are like cows, who you milk."

Hi.

Most of the mods are custom made by Mutu (most of those he developed them himself) and some (few - more administrative / server side ones) by me.

I am sure Mutu can give you more information.

I'm glad you appreciate the work, it gives me more motivation :)

So thank you!

Onto your question: yes MatchBot, FCBayernNews the next match, latest blog, the fixture list (including iCalendar format to import to Google Calendar), the localtime, weather and formation BBCodes and some extra goodies were coded by myself.

The integration with WordPress (for the blog) is done through a wordpress plugin called WP phpBB Bridge.

Then we also have a third party mod for the chat :)

Yeap. Chat is actually another application that is integrated to the forum having Single Sign On with PHPBB (similar to Wordpress). After every match some custom code made by Mutu shows chat logs.

Thats awesome. Especially the chatlog bit. I dont think I have heard of any chat mod producing chat logs before. Two thumbs up! =D>

@MUTU: Is it possible to obtain location info from the browser if the user has approved of this during setup?

Thanks, would it be possible then to include the channel that would broadcast the match in each respective region/market on the match starting post (or the main banner next to time to game)? I understand this is time consuming so I am just asking if you think it is worth the time. :P

It's possible and relatively quick to do, but by far the biggest task would be inputting the data each time.

I don't know where to ask this but is there a multi-qoute feature? or I'm just missing it? I'm quite noob sometimes. It's just a lot of the forums I use has that. Thanks. :D

Would a spreadsheet file help? One column for the country the second one for the channels.
