All the quizzes I've added are related to health & medicine but I'm now being asked about having other categories of interest so what's the possibility of having the facility to divide these into separate folders/boards instead of just one long list.

cheers

I had Omaro modify it (quirex), to use the YaBB user ID's.  It's a nice little program... I'll post that code later.  You might want to take some of the ideas.  Here is a link to the operating program:

Could you post the version that uses Omario's modification to use the YaBB user ID's?  It would be greatly appreciated.

Since I stopped doing things manually & installed the quiz mod the popularity of the quizzes have gone through the roof & probably because I now include them on any subject which makes my most wanted improvement now; the facility to divide the listings into category/subject folders.

I just wish I had time to learn Pearl so I could contribute instead of just feeding you all suggestions.

cheers for all you do!!

Has anyone noticed that the sort list by date posted doesn't work properly

board=;action=quiz;sort=date

&

board=;action=quiz;sort=date;order=reverse

Having just studied bits of perl yesterday & today I've realised one or two things, firstly I think I tracked down the sort by 'date posted' routine....

elsif($sortmode eq "date") {@sortlist = map {$_->[0]} sort{($a->[11])<=>($b->[11]) || uc($a->[2]) cmp uc($b->[2])} map { [ $_, (split /\|/)[0..11] ] } (@tmplist);}

If I'm correct in saying: $quiztxt{'11'} = "Posted"; i.e. the date posted

and [0..11] is the part that sorts by month.

I've now realised the routine does sort correctly by month but then sorts by quiz name, therefore, the dates within a month are all mixed-up.

The bit I don't understand is what's the use of the [2] here?

$quiztxt{'2'} =  "Add a new Quiz";
$quiztxt{'7'} = "Quiz Name";

so where is the routine sorting by quiz name. The full routine seems to be:

     # Sort quizlist

     $sortmode = $INFO{'sort'};

     $sortorder = $INFO{'order'};



     if($sortmode eq "name") {@sortlist = map {$_->[0]} sort{uc($a->[2]) cmp uc($b->[2])} map { [ $_, (split /\|/)[0..2] ] } (@tmplist);}

     elsif($sortmode eq "creator") {@sortlist = map {$_->[0]} sort{($b->[4])cmp($a->[4]) || uc($a->[2]) cmp uc($b->[2])} map { [ $_, (split /\|/)[0..4] ] } (@tmplist);}

     elsif($sortmode eq "difficulty") {@sortlist = map {$_->[0]} sort{($b->[9])<=>($a->[9]) || uc($a->[2]) cmp uc($b->[2])} map { [ $_, (split /\|/)[0..9] ] } (@tmplist);}

     elsif($sortmode eq "num") {@sortlist = map {$_->[0]} sort{($b->[10])<=>($a->[10]) || uc($a->[2]) cmp uc($b->[2])} map { [ $_, (split /\|/)[0..10] ] } (@tmplist);}

     elsif($sortmode eq "times") {@sortlist = map {$_->[0]} sort{($b->[8])<=>($a->[8]) || uc($a->[2]) cmp uc($b->[2])} map { [ $_, (split /\|/)[0..8] ] } (@tmplist);}

     elsif($sortmode eq "date") {@sortlist = map {$_->[0]} sort{($a->[11])<=>($b->[11]) || uc($a->[2]) cmp uc($b->[2])} map { [ $_, (split /\|/)[0..11] ] } (@tmplist);}

     else {@sortlist = map {$_->[0]} sort{uc($a->[2]) cmp uc($b->[2])} map { [ $_, (split /\|/)[0..2] ] } (@tmplist);}



     if ($INFO{'order'} eq "reverse") {

           @sortlist = reverse @sortlist;

     } else {

           if ($sortmode eq "name") {$order_name = ";order=reverse";}

           elsif ($sortmode eq "creator") {$order_creator = ";order=reverse";}

           elsif ($sortmode eq "difficulty") {$order_difficulty = ";order=reverse";}

           elsif ($sortmode eq "num") {$order_num = ";order=reverse";}

           elsif ($sortmode eq "times") {$order_times = ";order=reverse";}

           elsif ($sortmode eq "date") {$order_date = ";order=reverse";}

     }

     

     if ($sortmode ne "") {$sortmode = ";sort=".$INFO{'sort'};}

     if ($sortorder ne "") {$sortorder = ";order=".$INFO{'order'};}

thanks to BHRA Webmaster for this:

Quote:
If the date is stored as "Aug 8th, 2003, 8:38pm", then that is what it will sort (either alphabetically, or numerically!) If it sorts alphabetically, then "Aug 21st" will come between "Aug 12th" and "Aug 3rd"
 
What you need to do is to convert this date/time into a format which can be easily understood by the server, and is usually represented by the number of seconds elapsed since a fixed datum (usually 1st January 1970).
 
This is what is done by the mod prior to the line of code posted above which sorts this server time numerically (the sort{$a<=>$b} bit)


Although at the moment I've no idea how to do/write this.

I cannot get the files uploaded with the Boardmod program! I seem to be getting this error:

Quote:
Step 1 ... failed - ERR(1): Search string could not be found

Step 2 ... ok

Step 3 ... ok

Step 4 ... ok

Step 5 ... ok

Step 6 ... ok

Step 7 ... ok

Step 8 ... ok

Step 9 ... ok



> modifications failed! 1 errors occured. No files will be modified. Please see readme for help on the
error messages.



I do have the right version(SP1.3) and uploaded the right file. Any ideas what might be wrong? I'm using many other mods. Maybe some of the affects this mod?

Thanks.

Its looking in SubList.pl for:
'usersrecentposts',"Profile.pl&usersrecentposts";

It could have been changed by another mod, search for :
Profile.pl&usersrecentposts

and see what is diff from:
'usersrecentposts',"Profile.pl&usersrecentposts";

Back up your Files, Then You can edit the mod to what has changed in your SubList.pl and run the mod again, or do it all by hand.

I searched the file and found the line. The exactly same line. But look here:

Quote:
'usersrecentposts',"Profile.pl&usersrecentposts");


notice the ) ?

It closes hash. Hmm...I don't think that is wrong and would affect the script. And I checked my Sublist.pl file with the original that comes in the 1.3 zip file. The same file. I think..

I ran the BoardMod one more time, but got the same result.

Thanks for the help anyway.

Afraid not. I haven't had the time to work with this mod recently, hopefully I will again after the new year. And of course, if anyone else would like to, feel free. Smiley
