Hi,
I am trying to add an extra functionality to allow certain privilaged users to be able to rate a message. I need to do a form submission to update certain fields when the submit button is clicked. I was looking at the rate thread form >
"<form action="index.php?t=ratethread>"
As I studied the code I noticed that t=ratethread, means that ratethread.php is called.
Am I correct?

Well At first i was playing with the cases in init_usr function but then i noticed that that was for the pathinfo type urls and i am playing with the default.
I did no find any "special" checks on the variable $t for default url style and so i assume that ratethred.php is called as soon as it is pased through the url and so in my addtion I did a
<form action =index.php?t=ratepost>
but this does not seem to work. Any help please....
Smile
best regards,
Dennis

You don't need to hack the code for this.

There is a group permission settings "Rate topics" that can be used to control the ability of users to rate topics.

Hi
I am aware of the forum's in built topic rating functions.

I am trying to hack the code to allow certain privilaged users to be able to rate individual "posts" not topics. Smile

I want to try and call my functions from a file called ratepost.php.
I noticed that to rate a topic you pass t=ratethread to the index.php through the form and so i tried to set t=ratepost in the
forms action, ie. <form action="index.php?t=ratepost"> but it did not work
Please help.
thanks

regards
Dennis

The .php are all generated and need to exist (and be readable) for the forum to be able to access them via ?t=name_of_file.

Thanks Illia,

I spent an entire evening trying to figure out why the t=ratepost would not call ratepost.php even though it was world readable.

Well I fugured out that for some reason the ratepost.php had to be owned by the web server.

At first I had it owned by a user with perms of 644 Wink. I then changed it to belong to the web server and everything worked like a charm Smile
thanks again,
regards
Dennis
