Connect votes to user

Permalink Browser Info Environment
Hello,

This looks like an excellent add-on. I am trying to figure out how to allow a user to 'like' or 'save' pages and then be able to access those pages from their user profile. I know this is a voting add-on and not a favoriting add-on, but I'm wondering if you think it's possible for me to re-appropriate this add-on to act as a favoriting system where a user can see the pages they vote up. I'm thinking I can create a template that removes access to the vote-down function and style the thumbs up to be a heart or something, but want I can't tell is if this add-on could in any way be used to list a user's voted pages on their user profile.

If you could just let me know if oyu think this add-on would make that possibly, and if so, generally how difficult it would be. We can discuss custom development options after gauging whether this is even in the realm of possibility. Thank you!

Well, it would be feasible, but not simple:

Votes are indeed recorded in the database, so you would (in theory) be able to query the table to retrieve the list of pages. Unfortunately, the page list currently does not swing that way… and you have no simple way to achieve this in the current setup.

The best way would be me adding this option in the page list controller, (and the appropriate configuration). That's about a week of work (including doc & testing).

All other options are really hacky, you could think of creating your own template, return all results (no pagination support in that solution), then filter them out one by one by retrieving the ballot box and checking if the user "liked" it "disliked" it or did not vote for it at all…

Something along the lines:

use Concrete\Package\GntVoteList\Src\PageBallotBox;
use Concrete\Package\GntVoteList\Src\BallotBox;
$box = new PageBallotBox($pageID, $ballotBoxHandle);
$vote = $box->getUserVote();
if (BallotBox::VOTE_UP == $vote) {
   // user voted up
} else if (BallotBox::VOTE_DOWN == $vote) {
  // user voted down
} else {
 // user did not vote
}
// simple filter:
if ( !$box->didVote()) {
  // filter out
}


Although this would work in theory, you would have to drop the pagination support… and you would need to handle special cases when no pages are found etc... Also, this might be a bit slow in case of big sites (query everything in SQL, then filter out in PHP involving one more query per page to the best… not great indeed).

Best way would be to build this in the query directly as I mentionned before.

The user filter ability is ready now but not yet released. This will be in 2.0.12 version.

I am waiting for some feedback from another ticket (sb having a bug shown in a weird spot), and will release this feature along with the bug fix.
