Version 1.0.0

On May 17, 2012, in mod_most_popular_files, by terencejackson

Hi Guys,

the beta phase is over. You can download version 1.0.0 here.

There is also one new feature in this version. This feature was requested by Andy R and I put it in the 1.0.0.

The new feature is, that you can now choose if you just want to show the most popular files for the currently logged in user. This feature is turned off by default, but you can turn it on in the options.

There are three different modes for the feature which you can choose in the dropdown:

  • NO: The most popular files are calculated based on all users, not only the logged in one (default setting)
  • YES: The most popular files are calculated based on the logged in user. If no user is logged in the result is 0 popular files.
  • EXTENDED: The most popular files are calculated based on the logged in user, but if no user is logged in  the most popular files are calculated based on all users.

You can also provide a “No files available message” which is displayed, if no most popular files can be shown to the current user/visitor of your page.

I hope you enjoy the module. If you have any further wishes, comments, critic, just leave a comment.

 

 

Hi Guys,

to get Phoca Download Latest Additions working with Joomla 1.7 you need to do some modifications to the mod_phocadownloads_latest.xml. After installind the module you’ll find the file in the modules/mod_phocadownloads_latest folder.

Replace the content with this, and you can configure the module via the admin interface.

Version 1.0.0-beta2

On November 27, 2011, in mod_most_popular_files, by terencejackson

Hi Guys,

you can get the new version here.

In this version there is some new functionality and one bugfix.

First of all I want to show you the new functionality.

  1. You can now decide if the link to the file is only visible if the visiting user is logged in.
  2. You can now choose the download link creator. Default will give you a full link (http://localhost/index.php?option=com_phocadownload&view=category&id=5), “Menu Based” will give you a SEO download link (http://localhost/index.php/pakete/category1/file/5-sasdfadfs).

There was one bug, that if a file is downloaded by several users it was displayed multiple times in the view. This is now fixed!

BR,

Sven

 

Hi Guys,

finally the plugin got listet at joomla extensions!!

Here is the link Most Popular files for PhocaDownlad.

Please stop by and feel free to rate it 😉

 

Tagged with:  

Hi,

I was looking for a module for Joomla which displays the most popular files for PhocaDownload. I googled a little bit and found this one: http://extensions.joomla.org/extensions/extension-specific/phoca-download-extensions/7462. The problem was that it was not prepare for Joomla 1.7, which is what I am using. So I decided to spent some time and implement it by my own.

Today I release the first version of the plugin: 1.0.0-beta. You can get it here: Download. I’m looking forward to put it on Joomla Extensions. The module is listet on Joomla Extensions (see here or here).

Ok, now I want to introduce the functionality of the module.

Installation

Download the archive and install it via the “Joomla Extension Manager”.
It should appear in the “Module Manager” view now, if not, you have to add it via the “New” button in the view.

Configuration

If you click on the title of the module in the view you get to the configuration of the module.
On the left side you get the basic joomla module options like what is the title of the module, …
On the right side you see the module specific options, which I’ll explain to you now 😉

  • Max showed items: The number of the maximum showed files. In this example, up to 10 files will be showed.
  • Count of columns: The count of columns you need to display the popular files. An example for two you’ll see in the next picutre.
  • Popular determiation: Rating means with higher rating the file is more popular. Downloads mean with more downloads the file is  more popular.
  • Show the description: If yes the description will be shown next to the file title.
  • Show the rating stars: If yes the rating stars are shown (as in the picture above), if no there will be no stars.
  • Show the count of downloads: If yes the current download count will be shown next to (or instead of) the stars.

Style

Two css files are basically used for the module. The phocadownloadrating.css (components/com_phocadownload/assets/phocadownloadrating.css) and the mod_phocadownload_popular.css (modules/mod_phocadownloads_popular_2/assets/mod_phocadownload_popular.css). Here you can style the “frontend view” of the module.

If you have any comments, wishes, … just leave a comment here.

Hope you’ll download and enjoy the module 😉

Football Standings 0.6.2

On April 17, 2011, in Football Standings, by terencejackson

Hi Guys,

this morning I released Version 0.6.2 of my wordpress plugin.

These are the major changes:

  • Caching: You can now cache the tables. This improves the speed of the page loading. If you don’t want to cache, just set the cache to NoCache.
  • Icons are enabled: But beware. Have a look at the FAQ: The problem is, that it is not allowed by the DFL to show icons of the teams of the german bundesliga
  • The refresh problem in the settings is solved!
 

Football Standings 0.6.1

On March 31, 2011, in Football Standings, by terencejackson

Hi Guys,

as promised, here is version 0.6.1 including the possibility to choose a fav. team and the comparison option if you want to use the plugin in a page.

The fav. team will be displayed bold in the widget.

If you want to use the plugin in a page, just use [ football-standings ] in  a page.
There are still some issues with the comparison view. As it is not possible to snychrnonize the two compared leagues.
I will have a look at it (I guess I need some AJAX here 😉 ), will (again) learn how to use AJAX and try to put it in the next version.

Also there is still a litte bug in the options. If you save them, you manually have to relaunch the site to see the changes in the options view (This is just in the view, the data is stored correctly to the database). <= I’m on it.

I hope I can bring out the next version real soon.

ENJOY!

 

Football Standings 0.6.0

On March 26, 2011, in Football Standings, by terencejackson

Hi Guys,

 

as previously announced there is finally a new version of the football standings plugin. It does not has the same functionality as version 0.5.0.

Here are the main changes:

  • Only PHP5 support
  • It is not possible to show icons in the table (this is not allowed by the DFL)
  • Caching disabled

Since this version does not have the functionality of 0.5.0 here is a little road map where you can see which features are planned for the upcoming versions:

  • 0.6.1: Support the page with gamedays and comparison mode of two leagues. Fav. team support.
  • 0.6.2: Caching
  • 0.6.3: PHP4 support (only if you wish it 😉 )

If you have any additional wishes or ideas, just leave a comment… 😉

 

Football Standings Plugin

On March 20, 2011, in Football Standings, by terencejackson

Hi guys,

after almost 2 years I decided to refactor my once written (in a totally maintenance friendly manner) wordpress plugin.

I was really shocked, when I realized that my last commit was on 2009-4-7.  But there where so many other things to do in the past two years…

With the refactoring some things will change:

  • There will be no PHP4 support
  • Finally the plugin will be OO 😉

Since I didn’t write that much PHP Code in the past 2 years (I was mostly implementing Silverlight applications. BTW: Silverlight is really nice! Mybe there will be a SL Version of the plugin, too 😉 ), I hope I will get into it really soon, so that I can finish the first refactorings in the next days.

If you have any wishes for the future Version, just leave a comment and I’ll think about including it.

Stay tuned,

Sven
