Version Control & Bookmark MODULE for Contributions 0.1

What is this ?
This contribution will HELP you in almost ANY WAY possible to keep all your added contributions in a nice order.
There is a link included to the contributionpage, a possible link to this forum (like watch this topic), 4 diffent ways to set the status of a module:
- active
- inactive
- bookmark
- not set

It's up to you to keep it up to date and with all this information you are ready for ANY new version of osC /smile.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />

The field 'Comments for configuration' is a longtext field (for mysql geeks) so capable to hold lots of information how to install or extra changes you made to a contribution while installing.
I made this so you won't have too much trouble when you are upgrading your osC version /smile.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />

You can search in the fields 'name' & 'osC ID' for when your database is getting HUGH and it will when you are used to functionality of this contribution.

here some screenshots :

preview screen

NOTE: this is STILL in BETA
please test it all the way you can and give some comments,
and please help me out what i need to put into the [How does this work ?] link

I will post the link here when i am ready uploading it to the contributions

We all need to learn it once, how hard it may seem when you look at it, also you will master it someday ;)

sorry to say so but it's NOT that advanced yet...

This data is all written in a NEW TABLE in the database, it doesn't read the configuration table, why not ?
because this is a BETA version and if we want something like that then every module needs to have a certain code which is ofcourse impossible because this is not standard 'yet' (i hope this will become standard in the osC code)

Very nice work ...
Haven't tested it though but it looks great ...

Maybe you can post a sql statement template to be used for contributors in their install ...

We should add this in "how to make a contribution" and if possible contributors should make their contribution working with the status ...
So that we can enable/disable the contributions without the need for an install/deinstall ...

When the final osc version is ready and contains some contributions, they shouldn't force us to use them... Instead we should than just activate the contributions we want in the admin using your great tool ...

Thank you Edwin,

THAT is exactly the goal of this contribution /wink.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=';)' />

Still brainstorming on how we need to set it up for active/inactive etc...

But like always....

Patience is a virtue

it took me 4 FULL working days to complete this contribution but i am VERY pleased with the result

if i was a MOD on this forum i would have banned you years ago...

don't ever try to make comments of my daughter, i will find you sooner then you'll ever know.

guess what i am often in your neighbourhood because of work so you better hush...

it's easy to track someone down you know

Eh Em,
I didn't know that it was your daughter - I was making a friendly comment.

However, your threats could be taken the wrong way and you could end up facing a punishment - however, that wont happen WILL IT?

Becuase you are NEVER in my neighberhood - you don't even know my address - and another thing, we live thousands of miles apart - so GET REAL!!

1) Mod banning - I dought if this would happen - as iI contribute to this forum to the best of my ability - and since joing over 2 months ago - 325 posts isnt bad!!!

Even if it did - I would just create a new account!

Warren

NOW WILL YOU STOP THIS???
