Here's an example and remember that for some unusual reason a few moderators are fine, yet some have the bug - no amount of profile, cache, Megamod or moderator listing updates will fix it.

Note Armenger in this topic:

http://www.ispreview.co.uk/ubb2/ultimatebb.php?ubb=get_topic;f=145;t=000182

He's classified as an '!EXTREME Member!', yet he's actually a moderator and if you go into his profile...

http://www.ispreview.co.uk/cgi-bin/ubb2/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_profile;u=00000146

Now he shows as one, yet not on the 'Public_Topic_Page'.

---

Actually that whole topic is the perfect example because it has mods where the status shows and others where it doesn't.

ZIP updated again with TheX's fix.

I'm wondering if there's a new profile check that i'm not aware of, i'm re-going over the secgroups.cgi, new_reply.cgi, and lib.cgi files.

I'm not having a problem with the status changing, but it would be nice if the dropdown box on the extended search options page for the view/edit members in the CP had megamods on it.

It also works in Ubb 6.3.0, but, a minor edit was neccesary:

In Cp_user_titles.pl

Quote
code:
Code
 ###FIND:

&RegField($vars_wordlets_cp{user_titles_mod_title}, "ModeratorTitle", "yes", "40", "1000", "", UBBCGI::escapeHTML($vars_misc{ModeratorTitle}), 3);

###ADD UNDER:

&AlternateColors;
&RegField($vars_wordlets_cp{user_titles_megamod_title}, "MegaModeratorTitle", "yes", "40", "1000", "", UBBCGI::escapeHTML($vars_misc{MegaModeratorTitle}), 3);

HAS TO BE

code:
[qb]
Code
 ###FIND:

&RegField($vars_wordlets_cp{user_titles_mod_title}, "ModeratorTitle", "yes", "40", "1000", "", UBBCGI::escapeHTML($vars_misc{ModeratorTitle}), 3);

###ADD UNDER:

&RegField($vars_wordlets_cp{user_titles_megamod_title}, "MegaModeratorTitle", "yes", "40", "1000", "", UBBCGI::escapeHTML($vars_misc{MegaModeratorTitle}), 3);
[/qb]

Just wait until the bugs start to kick in after a few days of usage =).

I finally gave in and removed all the code and files, it's just no good under 6.3.1 yet. Soo many issues with status and authority, it even turned my admins into mods at one point. Thank god for backups.

It should, but the CP vars Template files went through alot of changes between 6.3.0 - 6.3.1 so there may be little changes in the find code.

If you have problems with the member files you can edit the files of the people that you made MegaMods to fix it. I honestly have not had a single problem yet since the last try.

I have had a large amount of problems with this hack since 6.04 and have installed and removed it many times. I'm very familiar with the issues it can cause and have not entered this blindly.

Hi folks

I'm still not exactly clear what this mod will allow...

I need to set up a custom group below Moderators, who have access to perks like custom avatars and posting polls, but with no moderation or Admin ability. Will this mod do this?

It would be great to able to set these kind of permissions for each forum, like phpBB2 can do.

Thanks in advance. smile

Found a couple of bugs..
Fixing these also fixed the problem I had last night that we discussed on AIM smile

In ubb_lib.cgi

This:
Quote
code:
Code
	if (($profile[8] eq 'Administrator') || ($user_profile[8] eq 'MegaModerator')) {

.

Should be:
code:
[qb]
Code
	if (($profile[8] eq 'Administrator') || ($profile[8] eq 'MegaModerator')) {
[/qb]
.

This:
Quote
code:
Code
	unless (($profile[8] eq 'Administrator') || ($user_profile[8] eq 'MegaModerator')) {

.

Should be:
code:
[qb]
Code
	unless (($profile[8] eq 'Administrator') || ($profile[8] eq 'MegaModerator')) {
[/qb]
.

In ubb_profile.cgi

This:
Quote
code:
Code
		if(($viewer_profile[8] eq 'Administrator') || ($user_profile[8] eq 'MegaModerator') || ($user_profile[8] eq 'Moderator')) {

.

Should be:
code:
[qb]
Code
		if (($viewer_profile[8] eq 'Administrator') || ($viewer_profile[8] eq 'MegaModerator') || ($viewer_profile[8] eq 'Moderator')) {
[/qb]
.

You're welcome.. wink

brett, can you please make your siggy 150x50? I mean I use 1280x1024 resolution and your sig image is still too big tipsy

Anyhow, very nice hack smile I don't like the concept of mega moderators (also in other BB software), but I like how you did it as a hack.

Brett:
Two problems I've found:

1- simply removing that megamod from the list does not take away their megamod status from their profile
2- if you do a 'member search', and the results contain a megamod, and you click 'submit' (without clicking their member number, that is), their megamod profile status vanishes, but they are still listed as a megamod in the megamod settings only.

Suggestion to fix both of them:

An older version of the mega mod hack allowed you to select 'mega mod' in the Administrator? Yes/No radio buttons. Moving the enabling mega moderator code into that, and that should kill two birds with one stone. After doing this you may need to add some coding to the area of the member database editing that displays results.

Other than that, great job!

Al bundy's hack for 6.0 just added the megamod text boxs the moderator page, not the member search, unless your refering to a 5.0 version for which i wouldn't know. Anyway, where's the fun in doing it like that tipsy wink

I also am seeing the deleting problem. When i get back form work tonight, i'll take a closer look at it.

It was the 5.45x version that I worked with that had the radio button choice. Personally, I like it that way; makes it much easier to use for me.

I see a large error in the coding. I was running this on 6.3.0 6.3.1 and even on my 6.4 test board, I followed the directions to a "T".

Well, when you're an Administrator (or a global moderator) and you are listed as a moderator of a forum (generally after the moderator page is updated) it'll over-write your forum status as "Moderator" which is quite a pain to have to re-upload your administrator file to get ones access level back.

Does anyone have a patch for this? I know that it is in this hack since everything worked fine on all of my forums before testing this hack.
