First topic message reminder :

What are post cards ? Post cards display a brief summary about a linked post, so you can get an idea of who wrote the message and what they said without actually quoting the post. The cards are created by posting the direct link to a message, so no bbcode is required.


Click to view demo

How does it work ?
It's incredibility easy ! Just copy the direct link to a post -- like the one below -- and paste it into your message. After you post or preview your message the link will automatically be converted into a post card ! No bbcode, no problem !

Direct post link :
Code:
http://demoactif.forumactif.com/t15-demo-post-cards?demo=post_cards#19

Result when posted :
http://demoactif.forumactif.com/t15-demo-post-cards?demo=post_cards#19

You can post the direct link to any post in your forum OR posts from other Forumotion forums, and the links will automatically be converted into post cards. Posts that are not visible however, will display a placeholder card. Wink


Installation

To install this plugin go to Admin Panel > Modules > JavaScript codes management and create a new script with the following settings.

Title : Post Cards
Placement : In all the pages
Code:
$(function() {
  'DEVELOPED BY ANGE TUTEUR';
  'NO DISTRIBUTION WITHOUT CONSENT OF THE AUTHOR';

Save the script and the Post Cards plugin will be installed ! Try posting some direct post links and they will be converted into post cards. Wink

If you want to make any modifications to the script please see the next section. Smile


Modifications

Below are all the modifications you can make to this plugin.

1. Summary Length
Near the top of the script after the error handling is a property named
Code:
summary_length
this property controls the max number of characters allowed in the summaries. By default it is set to 160 characters. Change this value if you want to make the summaries longer or shorter. Wink
Code:
summary_length : 160, // maximum character length for messages in post cards



2. Cache Time
As most cards are retrieved by sending a request to the server, the data needs to be cached to reduce the frequency of these requests. Under the summary_length property you'll see another property named
Code:
cache_time
. By default, the post cards are cached for 1 hour. Change this value if you want the cache time to be longer or shorter.
Code:
cache_time : 1*60*60*1000, // amount of time that cards are cached ( 1 hour )


3. Language
Under the cache time property is a language object -- named
Code:
lang
-- for translations or textual changes. Feel free to change the texts in this object to whatever you want.
Code:
    lang : {
      error : {
          name : 'Error',
          title : 'POST NOT FOUND',
        summary : 'The post you tried to view could not be found or is not accesible to you.'
      },

        no_name : 'Anonymous',
      no_avatar : 'http://illiweb.com/fa/invision/pp-blank-thumb-38px.png',
        no_title : 'No Title Available',
      no_summary : 'No Summary Available',
      no_origin : 'No Origin Available',
        tooltip : 'Click to view the full post'
    },


4. The Theme
Lastly is the post card theme. If you want to make edits to the theme find the stylesheet at the bottom of the script :
Code:
document.write('<style type="text/css">a.fa_post_card{font-size:12px;font-family:"Helvetica Neue",Helvetica,Arial,sans-serif;font-weight:400;text-decoration:none!important;color:#333!important;background:#FFF;border:1px solid #CCC;border-radius:10px;display:block;width:600px;max-width:100%;min-height:100px;overflow:hidden;position:relative;margin:3px 0}.fa_card_inner{margin-left:125px}.fa_card_left{text-align:center;background:#EEE;border-right:1px solid #CCC;position:absolute;top:0;left:0;bottom:0;width:125px}.fa_card_avatar{height:50px;width:50px;position:absolute;top:50%;left:50%;margin:-35px 0 0 -25px}.fa_card_username{font-size:12px;font-weight:700;position:absolute;top:50%;left:0;right:0;margin-top:20px}.fa_card_title h2{color:#333;font-size:14px;font-weight:700;border:none;margin:0}.fa_card_summary p{font-size:12px;margin:0}.fa_card_origin{color:#999}.fa_card_origin,.fa_card_summary p,.fa_card_title h2{padding:3px 10px}.fa_card_origin,.fa_card_title h2,.fa_card_username{white-space:nowrap;overflow:hidden;text-overflow:ellipsis;width:100%;-webkit-box-sizing:border-box;-moz-box-sizing:border-box;box-sizing:border-box}.fa_card_clear{clear:both}</style>');

You can change the colors, fonts, etc.. here. However, if you have a dark forum and need a dark theme for the post cards, replace the stylesheet above with the one below : (preview)
Code:
document.write('<style type="text/css">a.fa_post_card{font-size:12px;font-family:"Helvetica Neue",Helvetica,Arial,sans-serif;font-weight:400;text-decoration:none!important;color:#CCC!important;background:#111;border:1px solid #333;border-radius:10px;display:block;width:600px;max-width:100%;min-height:100px;overflow:hidden;position:relative;margin:3px 0}.fa_card_inner{margin-left:125px}.fa_card_left{text-align:center;background:#222;border-right:1px solid #333;position:absolute;top:0;left:0;bottom:0;width:125px}.fa_card_avatar{height:50px;width:50px;position:absolute;top:50%;left:50%;margin:-35px 0 0 -25px}.fa_card_username{font-size:12px;font-weight:700;position:absolute;top:50%;left:0;right:0;margin-top:20px}.fa_card_title h2{color:#CCC;font-size:14px;font-weight:700;border:none;margin:0}.fa_card_summary p{font-size:12px;margin:0}.fa_card_origin{color:#666}.fa_card_origin,.fa_card_summary p,.fa_card_title h2{padding:3px 10px}.fa_card_origin,.fa_card_title h2,.fa_card_username{white-space:nowrap;overflow:hidden;text-overflow:ellipsis;width:100%;-webkit-box-sizing:border-box;-moz-box-sizing:border-box;box-sizing:border-box}.fa_card_clear{clear:both}</style>');


These are all the modifications that can be made. If you have any questions, comments, or find a bug feel free to leave a reply below. Enjoy ! Coffee

Hmm..

For #6559 @ chatworld
https://www.achatworld.com/t1178p25-iconskouliki-graphics-requests#6559
The post is not available to guests, so the post card is cached as "Not Found". If you're logged in it'll display okay, though you may need to delete the localStorage entry, because the card above will still be caché as not found.

For Skouliki's post though, that's not correct, because the link to her post is visible to guests. So because of that, I recommend reinstalling the script in the first post, because there has been some minor changes since "Thu 1 Sep 2016 - 10:29" which added support for FAE and correct some bugs. Once installed, clear your cache and see if there are any changes.

@Ape I figured out the problem ; it's because your forum is served via HTTPS and we're requesting an insecure page HTTP which is denied..


When I get the chance I'll investigate this further to see if it can be fixed.
