put some output with print/echo in your function to see if its called.
you set postlabel and want to use mod_status in the template? use the same variable.

Right. Now we've got -

hook: read|phorum_mod_status

title: Status Module

desc: List the status of user depending on volume of posts.

===================================================

<?php

function phorum_mod_status($data)
{
$PHORUM = $GLOBALS["PHORUM"];

if(isset($PHORUM["mod_status"])){

foreach ($messages as $message) {
$user = phorum_user_get($user_id, false);
$posts = $user["posts"];
if ($posts > 100) {
$message["postlabel"] = "You've posted a lot!";
}
else {
$message["postlabel"] = "You newbie!";

}

$data[$message]["postlabel"] = $message;
}
}

return $data;
}


?>

===================================================

with -

{IF MESSAGES->user_id true}{LANG->Status}:&nbsp;{MESSAGES->postlabel}{/IF}</p></td>

in the 'read.tpl' template.

I put

'echo $data;'

}

after 'return $data; but I get a parse error when I do that.

put it in BEFORE return $data ... with return the function ends.

O.K. I did that.

It still doesn't work. I just get the word 'array' appear in top left of my read page.

Right, I fixed the 'array' word appearing. I now have -

<?php

function phorum_mod_status($data)
{
$PHORUM = $GLOBALS["PHORUM"];

if(isset($PHORUM["mod_status"])){

foreach ($messages as $message) {
$user = phorum_user_get($user_id, false);
$posts = $user["posts"];
if ($posts > 100) {
$message["postlabel"] = "You've posted a lot!";
}
else {
$message["postlabel"] = "You newbie!";

}

$data[$posts]["postlabel"] = $message;

echo $data;
}
}


return $data;
}


?>

But still no joy.

:-(

thats a start ;).
also you are still messing variables.

change
foreach ($messages as $message) {
to
foreach ($messages as $message_id=>$message) {

where do you get $user_id from?

$user = phorum_user_get($user_id, false);
should probably be
$user = phorum_user_get($message['user_id'], false);


$data[$message]["postlabel"] = $message;
should be
$data[$message_id]["postlabel"] = $message;

oh another thing ... where do you have $messages from?

foreach ($messages as $message) {

should get (with the post above)

foreach ($data as $message_id=>$message) {

Right. Thanks. Sooooooo...now we have -

status.php -

===================================================

<?php

function phorum_mod_status($data)
{
$PHORUM = $GLOBALS["PHORUM"];

if(isset($PHORUM["mod_status"])){

foreach ($data as $message_id=>$message) {
$user = phorum_user_get($message['user_id'], false);
$posts = $user["posts"];
if ($posts > 100) {
$message["postlabel"] = "You've posted a lot!";
}
else {
$message["postlabel"] = "You newbie!";

}

$data[$message_id]["postlabel"] = $message;
echo $data;
}
}


return $data;
}


?>

===================================================


info.txt -

===================================================

hook: read|phorum_mod_status

title: Status Module

desc: List the status of user depending on volume of posts.

===================================================

and in 'read.tpl' -

===================================================

{IF MESSAGES->user_id true}{LANG->Status}:&nbsp;{MESSAGES->postlabel}{/IF}

===================================================

yes its still wrong but from the look of this thread it looks like we could have done this alone.

you set the whole message as postlabel, so either set just a string as postlabel in the result or just set the whole message again (not only as postlabel).

Totally lost with this now.

You're saying something like this -


$string =$data[$message_id]["postlabel"] = $message;
echo $data["postlabel"];

should be in place of -

$data[$message_id]["postlabel"] = $message;
echo $data;


???

===================================================

I'm giving up on this one myself, hopefully someone else with a bit more knowledge will pick up on it because it would be a nice feature but I'm finding it very frustrating.
