JAwards Integration would be easy [SOLVED]

JAwards Integration would be easy [SOLVED] 10 Years, 5 Months ago  
[color=#FF0000]UPDATE: Scroll down. A hack has been documented to make this work.[/color]

I use JAwards, which allows us to issue awards to community builder members, and which displays two random awards under the profile image in each person\'s post. Below is the code in Joomlaboard\'s view.php which displays these awards:

[code:1]$query = \"SELECT b.image, b.name\"
. \"\\n FROM #__jawards_awards AS a\"
. \"\\n LEFT JOIN #__jawards_medals AS b ON b.id = a.award\"
. \"\\n WHERE a.userid=\". $fmessage->userid
. \"\\n ORDER BY RAND() LIMIT 2\";
$database->setQuery( $query );
$medals = $database->loadObjectList();
$msg_userrankimg.=\"\";
foreach ($medals as $medal){
$msg_userrankimg.= \"\"
. \"image .\"\\\" alt=\\\"\".$medal->name.\"\\\" />\"
. \"\";
}
$msg_userrankimg.=\"\";
unset($medals);[/code:1]

Here is a link to the jawards project, which was just upgraded to version 0.7 this week: http://joomlacode.org/gf/project/jawards/

To implement this in fireboard, we would need to be able to turn ON an integration variable in the configuration, and then put the code above in the routine which displays posts if that variable is set.

I was always hoping that this integration would have been done in Joomlaboard, but it never was. Please tell me that you will do this, so that I can stop being forced to hack the code every time you come out with a new release.

This project has more than 2000 downloads, and I would guess that it would be much higher if integration didn\'t require a code hack.

Great post.
Now, it is my turn to ask. Where this is supposed to appear? I am not aware with jawards. Could you give me an example with working integration (with Joomlaboard)

ivo.apostolov - I PM\'d you a website and a login to access the full jAwards system.

I saw it. I will do my best to take a look in the next 1-2 days.

You can do it maybe like a plugin, as I don\'t think this is something that should be in the core code.

Re:JAwards Integration would be easy 10 Years, 5 Months ago  
I agree with that (being the dev. of jAwards ;) ). It\'s just a few lines to display two random medals from jAwards under the Avatar, and the plugin sounds very promising, and the best solution for it!
Unfortuntely, I have not switched to Fireboard and will wait for some future release to do so (JB running fine at the moment, and took me some time to get it \"right\" here and there). So I would be grateful for anyone who has Fireboard running and jAwards to contribute a kind of plugin.

You can see some medals in action [url=http://www.roundtable-bretonnia.org/index.php?option=com_joomlaboard&Itemid=87&func=view&id=30854&catid=2]here[/url].

I had the awards hack running on my site, it is working perfect. A FB plugin for joomla awards would be great.

Anyone get this working on fireboard.

Id really like to get this working. But alas i cannot. :(

Re:JAwards Integration would be easy 10 Years, 2 Months ago  
i think this would be a great option in the configuration of fireboard, to be able to allow integration if jawards is installed.

any news of whether this will be in the next release as it doesnt seem too hard to incorporate?? or if someone might attempt a plugin?? thanks :)

Re:JAwards Integration would be easy 10 Years, 1 Month ago  
OK.

I\'ve been moved here after replying and asking for information regarding the software.
I am starting to realize that Joomla folk although highly talented do not have much time for people other than moving or quoting.

Please tell me.

If it is that everyone is soooooooooo busy so as not to reply why is it you are even working on it? I don\'t, won\'t, never will tolerate ignorance in any part of my life. Not that it matters to important people it would seem?

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

Anyway I have a version of Jawards installed as I said before in the LOCKED thread. It works great but I like the new idea of allowing members to show off their medals in forum view.

Many thanks.
