I can't help but notice the "balance" aspects of the plugin do not tie into the actual menu item what-so-ever. I'm kind of at a loss as to why whomever went through the trouble of writing those pages up if they weren't going to utilize the data on the menu item.
Haven't updated this in awhile. If you're viewing trickmod.com at all, you're up to date on what is happening. If you aren't; here's a small catch-up:.
Development is still underway. Probably 75-80% done with the alpha release. Some of this may already be in previous posts, sorry about repeats:
Donation pages are written (you donate from a page now instead of via a page and the menu item).
The menu item has been rewritten slightly. You now only need to set the due date and the goal amount (And progress bar color. Also, probably a good idea to enable the items you want displayed on the menu..). Everything else is pulled from the database.
Balance page has been converted to just showing a list of who has donated within a period of time (defaults to from last due date to current due date).
Currencies are handled from database entries and all currencies around the plugin are consistent. You no longer need to set it 200 times.
Date format is now handled by the e107 date converting function. You will select either short, long, or forum and dates will be converted accordingly. This is to allow for a more fluid feel overall.
Preferences are getting trimmed down. A lot.
Configuration will be handled on one page, with redundancies and not-needed fields removed.
Cash Manager will be tweaked (I haven't gotten to this yet, so not many details here).
That's pretty much it. A fun fact: the unpackaged size of the rewrite is 86kb (roughly 40%, I'm aiming for half the size. We'll see..) smaller than it previously was. This has been done without removing any functionality what-so-ever.
Stay tuned. If you want "cutting edge" news, keep an eye on this site. You do not need to sign up in order to read the news posts. Also, I'm not making you go there for any reason. Updates will be posted here still, but at a much slower pace.
I went to post in your forum septor but the activation email never came through.
To answer the question about cash manager, we use it quite frequently. We often get donations just through the paypal via the email address and thru various other methods so it is great for adding them to keep track of totals. We also run a few game servers that require payment at different times so we use the cash manager to add in outgoing payments instead of resetting everything to zero and starting again.
@Dresh - Check your spam folder, it more than likely got sent there.
@Alex Tovey - Unfortunately it's summer out and my wife and I are trying to remodel our downstairs with the little free time we have. The small amounts of time I have to code aren't really enough to make enough of a dent on anything in particular. The good news is we're down to the last room and I go on vacation the 15th of this month so I should have more time to at least push this plugin into beta.
I have committed the code to GitHub. It is still not close to done and requires more attention to be finished. If you would like to help get things finished read this file. Once the items on that list are finished an alpha release will happen.
One of the biggest issues I have found but im getting there is the .php files where its looking for location e_107_plugins but plugin folder is called something else. As with our website the plug in Folder is not called e_107_plugins.
@Moc I think this is why you may have thought its not looking at our database??.
Cheers for all your work so far & I,m looking forward to the updated version Ante Up!
Yep that falls under 'hardcoded' strings, its all fixed in Ante Up! The roofdog donation tracker plugin had these plugin folders (and loads of other stuff) hardcoded, which causes loads of issues when using custom folder paths.
3 more days of work and then I'm on vacation. I'll be using my spare time over the next 3 days to update and upload some of my smaller existing plugins and then when vacation starts -- look out -- Ante Up will get some serious development time.
edit: Also, PrivateSmokey, as Moc has said; most (actually probably all) of your issues will be/are fixed in Ante Up. Just hang tight for a little longer.
