Thanks for the addon. Very usefull!
I need to translate all dates (january, etc)? Why don´t you use XF phrase dates?
1. Coming from ubb over vbulletin to XF, the generated milestones start with every product change from zero. That leads to a weird history. Is there anything that you could do on your end, so the addon is taking care of this
2. What would be use case of a history addon, when not informing users and to engage them: are there user alerts for the new milestones? Else, I´ld have to ask - "Heck, why not?!"
Indeed you have to or I have to spank youI wrote the history add-on for the owner/admins can keep a record of how their forum has changed over the years. And for members to see how their contributions have added to thread counts, message counts etc. Later, I felt there was a need for members to visually see how close a milestone was to be achieved, so I added a widget (when hovering over the number, the amount remaining is shown in a tooltip), hoping it will get members to post more, create more threads, and so on.
In a later version I could add alerts if you like,
@Lawrence great add-on, thank you for publishing it.
I have a support request: I made the mistake of not setting my milestones as I wanted and now the history has been populated with a lot of milestones which I don't want to be displayed. (My forum is 15 years old with close to a million posts). Specifically I changed the "base marker" numbers but the milestones from the old base marker numbers are still there. How can I delete the milestones and re-populate the history with milestones based on the current base marker number settings, please?
Thank you for the quick reply. I realized I didn't have the permissions to delete entries in-line so once I fixed that I was able to edit the history directly.Thank-you,
From the AdminCP ([EAE] History menu), remove each milestone type you want to change, then set the new markers in the options, and then re-add each milestone type. Note that this may just pick up where it left off for each marker (I'd have to verify that), if so, then uninstall the add-on and re-install it (then set your markers to the values you want, and then re-add each marker).
