Hoeray! I have a first core version of submission moderation up and running. This means people can submit stories, and moderators can moderate stories. When a submission reaches a certain positive threshold (currently set to 2) the submission becomes a story and up it goes. If a submission reaches a certain negative threshold (currently set to -2) the submission is dumped. The fact this is all done by our visitors (without our intervention) makes it truly spiffy imho. The website can live a life on it's own, fed by the visitors. Beware, a lot of work need to be done though ... it's just a first basic implementation with the core functionality. There are quite a lot of things that I'll need to change, extend and improve. But comments, suggestions and ideas are - as always - welcomed. Please read this log message carefully! It features quite a lot of important information. To test the moderation, log in, select theme 'Dries' (the other themes need a small update) and head by clicking the one and only 'submission moderation' link. Don't be afraid to submit lame/funny/useless stories for testing purpose ... as soon we go public, we'll wipe out the story database. ;-) WHAT'S NEW? ----------- * Added 2 new operations to user.class.php to set and retrieve the user's "history". Very evil but required to avoid people voting twice. * Moved dbsave() from account.php to functions.php. In addition, I added a new function to user.class.php called `save()' that ... well, saves the object back to the database. It's (IMHO) a better approach compared to dbsave(): it keeps things organized. ;-) BUGFIXES: --------- * Fixed a (heavy) memory leak in the constructor of user.class.php: mysql_fetch_array() returns an _associative_ array which made the constructor `pollute' the object with a lot of useless variables. * Fixed the slash-problem on the account pages. :-) * Fixed UnConeD's theme glitch, alas the warning. * Fixed the e-mail address not showing in the confirmation email (upon registration). * Fixed the typical quote and backslash problems in submit.php. * submit.php now uses the database abstraction layer. IMPORTANT: ---------- * You can check the new submission system at: http://beta.drop.org/submission.php or by following the `submission moderation' link from my theme. * UnConeD, Jeroen: you'll need to update your themes to take advantage of the new function: displayAccount(). This function will display the `submission moderation' link when a user is logged on. * Natrak: you might want to apply the patches in user.class.php on the other sites using the same user-system.
