'Buy Me A Beer' Mod
SMF Version: 1.1.3, 1.1.2, 1.1.1

Link to Mod | Comment On This Mod

Allows users to reward other users for their posts by buying them a beer (or at least donating enough money via Paypal to buy one).

This mod is an initial release. Please report any bugs you find, no matter how trivial.
Remember to backup your database AND files before installing any modifications, especially initial releases and betas

Simply install the package to install this modification on the Default theme.

Manual edits will be required for themes which have a custom profile (1x edit) and/or custom display template (1x edit)
AND you will need to place a copy of the image buymeabeer.gif in the image folder of each of your themes (Themes/{themename}/images/)

Open Themes/{themename}/Profile.template.php, and FIND:
Code: [Select]

// All the messenger type contact info.

Code: [Select]

// Paypal Address For 'Buy Me A Beer Mod
echo ' <tr>
<td width="40%"><b>', $txt['buymeabeer'], ': </b><div class="smalltext">', $txt['buymeabeer_desc'], '</div></td>
<td><input type="text" name="buymeabeer" size="24" value="', $context['member']['buymeabeer']['name'], '" /></td>
<td colspan="2"><hr width="100%" size="1" class="hrcolor" /></td>

Open Themes/{themename}/Display.template.php, and FIND:
Code: [Select]

// Show online and offline buttons?
if (!empty($modSettings['onlineEnable']) && !$message['member']['is_guest'])

Code: [Select]

if (!$message['member']['is_guest'] && $context['user']['is_logged'] && !empty($message['member']['buymeabeer']))
$priceofbeer = 5 ; // In US Dollars no cents
<a href="https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_xclick&business=' , htmlentities ($message['member']['buymeabeer'], ENT_NOQUOTES, "UTF-8") , '&item_name=' , htmlentities ($txt['pleasebuymeabeer'], ENT_NOQUOTES, "UTF-8") , '&amount=', $priceofbeer ,'%2e00&no_shipping=0&no_note=1&tax=0&currency_code=USD&lc=US&bn=PP%2dDonationsBF&charset=UTF%2d8" rel="nofollow" title="', $txt['buymeabeeralt'] ,'"><img alt="', $txt['buymeabeeralt'] ,'" border="0" src="', $settings['images_url'] , '/buymeabeer.gif" border="0"/></a><br/>';

If you are still having trouble, I recommend the Modification Parser/ by Daniel 15

How Do I Use This Mod?
An additional option is added to the users profile to enter their paypal address.
Where the user has entered their paypal address, a 'beer glass' icon appear in the poster information area of users posts.  The alt text when hovering over the icon states 'Buy Me A Beer Through Paypal' [must be logged in to see] and when clicked takes the user to the paypal page.

On the profile area

In the poster information area of posts

$5 for a beer?  Seems reasonable, but if you want to change it you can do so easily by editing the Display.template.php and FIND the line below and REPLACE the 5 with another digit (must be a whole number, no decimals).
Code: [Select]

$priceofbeer = 5 ; // In US Dollars no cents

Please use the modification thread for support with this modification.
(Please don't ask me to do the edits for you)

1.0 BETA
o Initial release made per SMF user request.
o Ensured it removes the buymeabeer.gif image on uninstall (as per SMF Modification Guidelines)
o Wrote out the manual edits
o Improved the readme/documentation for this mod
