It has not been tested on earlier versions of PostNuke - hoewever it's a pretty standard installation, so try it if you wish on an older version of PN - feedback is encouraged.

Feel free to distribute and use this with any PNphpBB2 impelementation - but keep in mind that you are using this at your own risk

Description

This add-on will enable two controls in the PN User Control panel.

It basically will enable a user to quickly change/view their forum profile or check their forum-based mail from the PostNuke user interface - i.e. 'My Account' or user.php in the PostNuke root.

Instructions for overriding PostNuke messaging with PNphpBB2 messaging.

Install:

  • Simply extract the contents of the PNphpBB_user.zip to a temporary file
  • move the folder 'user' to the PNphpBB module directory in your PostNuke installation
    • should be something like: yoursite.com/modules/PNphpBB
  • Installation complete!
  • Browse to your user index page - yoursite.com/user.php - to test the integration.

Customize :

  • By default both functionalities are implemented.

    Change text under user icons

    • To change the value of the text under the the mail functionality icon:
      • open /user/links/links.forummail.php in the user folder
      • change the value of the variable $mailSays
        • example: $mailSays="my icon text";
    • To change the value of the text under the the profile functionality icon:
      • open /links/links.forumprofile.php in the user folder
      • change the value of the variable $profileSays
        • example: $profileSays="my icon text";

    Turn off Mail Checking links

    • If you are not using the forum-based mail as your PostNuke Mail go to the user folder for the PNphpBB2 module in the PostNuke Installation.
      • should be something like: yoursite.com/modules/PNphpBB/user
    • remove the following following files from the '/modules/PNphpBB/user/' folder
      • case/case.forummail.php
      • links/links.forummail.php
      • modules/forummail.php
      • images/forummail.jpg

      • case/case.forumprofile.php
      • links/links.forumprofile.php
      • modules/forumprofile.php
      • images/forumprofile.jpg

Uninstall

  • Simply remove the 'user' folder in the module or rename the 'user' folder to 'user_off'.
    • should be something like - yoursite.com/modules/PNphpBB/user
    • No DB tables or anything are created - so none need to be removed
