[Feature Request] Mentioning something as a Rule for Badges

Now, I know Mentioning is an option in the choices for creating badges, but that makes a rule that assigns the badge if the user mentions somebody, but, there is no option for assigning a badge for something saying "Hi" in a discussion, for example.

    You want a rule that parses the message for a word? Maybe a keyword rule?

    You should write it up as an exercise. I will get you started.

    <?php if(!defined('APPLICATION')) exit();
    
    /**
     * This rule awards badges when a user uses a specific keyword in a discussion,
     * comment, or activity
     */
    class KeywordUsed implements YagaRule{
    
      public function Award($Sender, $User, $Criteria) {
        // insert logic here
        return FALSE;
      }
    
      public function Form($Form) {
        $String = $Form->Label('Keyword', 'KeywordUsed');
        $String .= $Form->Textbox('Keyword');
    
        return $String;
      }
    
      public function Validate($Criteria, $Form) {
        $Validation = new Gdn_Validation();
        $Validation->ApplyRules(
            array(
              'Name' => 'Keyword', 'Validation' => 'Required'
            ));
        $Validation->Validate($Criteria);
        $Form->SetValidationResults($Validation->Results());
      }
    
      public function Hooks() {
        return array('CommentModel_BeforeNotification', 'DiscussionModel_BeforeNotification');
      }
    
      public function Description() {
        $Description = T('Yaga.Rules.KeywordUsed.Desc');
        return Wrap($Description, 'div', array('class' => 'InfoMessage'));
      }
    
      public function Name() {
        return T('Yaga.Rules.KeywordUsed');
      }
    }

    I will try that @hgtonight

    @hgtonight After saving the code as class.keyword.php and saved it in /applications/yaga/library/rules, it gives me a "Rule Not Found" error

  • edited January 2014

    I got around it by renaming class.keyword.php to class.keywordused.php, and got it setup, but now, when I say "Hi" in a comment / discussion, it doesn't award it to me automatically

    You will have to write the actual parsing code yourself as an exercise. Line 10 of your rule file should read // insert logic here.

    Have at it.

    @hgtonight Just one thing: What does $SQL do? How does it connect to the database if it does? I need the parsing code to pull data from the database.

    EDIT: Nvm about the above question. What table does Vanilla store comments?

  • hgtonighthgtonight ∞ · New Moderator

    $SQL is generally a Gdn_SQLDriver object.

    Read through /library/database/class.sqldriver.php to learn what it can do.

    Maybe this?

    public function Award($Sender, $User, $Criteria) {


    $connect = mysqli_connect("localhost","*******","******","*******")


    $result = mysqli_query($connect,"SELECT * FROM GDN_Comment")



    • if $result includes "Hi" then
      return TRUE;



      else
      return FALSE



      Maybe not complete, but is this ok for the base, before the award assigning code adds on?

    You don't need to deal with connecting to the db at all. The comment or discussion is already loaded in the calling object ($Sender).

  • What about this?



    public function Award($Sender, $User, $Criteria) {


    if $Sender include "Hi" then


    return TRUE;

    @hgtonight Did you add the code to automatically give out badges yet?

    EDIT: Along with the parsing code I did
