    MinePress is well under way!

    • Dynmap Integration: I just finished Dynmap integration, in part thanks to WordPress user onkoistudios for the donation of a test server for me to work with.
    • Validator: Validator should now work across all server platforms. Additionally it no longer requires the pesky url-file-access function.
    • Votifier Integration: The backend for working with Votifier is mostly finished, just have to write the actual display components.
    • MineQuery Integration: My original plans for MineQuery integration are no longer relevant, as Minecraft server itself now includes this functionality... so unfortunately that module will have to be rewritten.

    When will this be released as I am in need of the validator working again on my site as it is causing problems with other plugins which use Minecraft usernames.
    And the new plugin sounds good, just what I need for my site!

    MCV has been updated to v1.3! This update fixes all known issues, as well as cleans up a LOT of unnecessary code and removes the dependency on URL File-Access!

    What else is everyone looking for?

    Trying to visualize membership and location of nations, cities and members is really difficult. If there was a way you could integrate a visual outline of them, and (using something like BuddyPress) display dedicated forums for each of those so users can see who the players are and easily communicate with them, that would be awesome!

    I have to say, I am very excited to hear you are still doing this! You are making a great thing here! Everything you have on that list is either something my server already has or something I've been wanting to do (like the votifier integration) If you could give us an idea of when this will be available? Also, our server website is mcultracraft.com, Check us out! :D If this minepress works for us our server is more than willing to make a donation to your work, Have a great day! -Qharouff

    I don't have a set launch date for MP, but hopefully it won't be long. My goal is ten modules for launch, and I'm struggling to figure out the best ten that should be included! As previously mentioned, I've got four complete, so that means I've got to figure out six more...

    MP is also designed to be modular and extensible... You can enable/disable modules at will so things you don't need aren't cluttering up your site, and adding new modules to the platform should be fairly simple as well!

    If you have any requests for modules you'd like to see included... let me know!!!

    One more little update... I've got one fairly big change happening with the votifier module. It's being replaced with an MP extension tentatively named MP Log Viewer. The new log viewer module will operate in roughly the same fashion as MP itself... it is modular and is capable of handling logs from various Minecraft plugins. You only enable the modules for plugins you are using... again, no clutter!

    I don't know if you were planning on doing this or not but integrating The Minecraft Validator into MP, also adding the option of password authentication. I know I saw someone post this: https://login.minecraft.net/?user=USERNAME&password=PASSWORD&version=12 I was thinking a one time minecraft password entry at sign up.

    McV is already integrated into MP. Password authentication isn't a bad idea though... I'll look into it.

    Any chance you'd have a solution to names shorter than 3 characters, and use of capital letters in the name?

    Can you elaborate?

    I've added the ability for MP to optionally verify MC passwords, and added a function which should (also optionally) allow usernames with less than four characters.

    in my tests (and as far as I've been able to determine from docs), usernames aren't case sensitive and have no limit... can someone verify this?

    Hm, I wonder if it was BuddyPress limiting it then. I had issues before signing up with any username and had capital letters in it, or names shorter than 4 characters. I must note that this is making a username NOT from the admin panel.

    I created several users through the registration form with three letter names... no problems. Could be a BP issue I suppose.

    Ah as well as capital letters too?

    Would it be possible to integrate MCMMO into buddypress profiles.
    So on the profile page there would be a tab for stats that would display all the users levels.
    There could also be a widget or short code to then display all time best players and possibly weekly players.

    MCMMO does support a database so the profiles would only need to call the data.

    http://forums.bukkit.org/threads/info-web-ws-v0-5-web-stat-page-for-mcmmo-whith-mysql-only-1302.15315/page-8

    This was made to display the stats using the database but profile integration of this data would be cool.

    Strange that they redacted it given it's not about a support issue... or a plugin that even exists yet. Let's see if they'll allow me to post my skype... dgriffiths1227

    Can you look into making it work with sending a console command to the server when a player joins using the PHPsend bukkit plugin.

    I use a plugin called gray list, which allows players to join as guest but not have any commands or privileged, then a simple command moves them from the grey list to the white list and their first rank...

    Plus that would also have many many other uses, like VIP stuff for joining and such.

    Thanks!

    Nice, this MinePress is going to be a great plugin, congratulations!, im looking for a server listing plugin for a new site that im working on, i think could be done recoding a business directory plugin and adding some features like server status, number online players, max number of players, game mode, rank, others stuffs.

    I found a very usefel php class that could be integrated to do the job, if someone elfe is interested let me know, may be we can hire @ghost1227 to do the job.

    Best regards.

    Hey Victor! Sounds to me that's something I've already got built into MP, although I could be misunderstanding you. If you want to talk about it (or hiring me for anything else :) ) feel free to contact me offsite! Since WP doesn't like me posting my email here, stop by my website (it's on my profile page) and just use the contact form there.

    Another update, and a lot of changes...

    • Reworked the file structure for the backend to make things cleaner
    • Made a number of changes to the backend framework to improve stability
    • Fixed an issue where minotar (Minecraft avatar) failed to restore the default 'unknown' avatar when deactivated
    • Fixed an issue which caused the validator to suffer intermittent failures on the minecraft.net call (also applied to Minecraft Validator)
    • Deprecated all use of CURL in favor of wp_remote_get() (also applied to Minecraft Validator)
    • Cleaned up the Buycraft Integration CSS
