Expose "Mark this post as the correct answer"

Unsolved Technical Support
  • is there any way that "Mark this post as the correct answer" from the Q&A plugin can be moved out of the dropdown it sits in, and placed inside the post itself? I'd like to do this so that the process is simplified - it's currently buried, which isn't very intuitive if you do not know where to look.

    Thanks

  • In the Q&A plugin, it basically makes a call to socket.emit('plugins.QandA.toggleSolved({ tid });, so your theme can be updated to expose the control, and you can wire it up that way.

    That's the bulk of it, really. The plugin also calls alerts.alert and ajaxify.refresh, but you can also do those on your own:

    	function toggleSolved() {
    		var tid = ajaxify.data.tid;
    		socket.emit('plugins.QandA.toggleSolved', { tid: tid }, function (err, data) {
    			if (err) {
    				return alertType('error', err);
    			}
    
    			alertType('success', data.isSolved ? '[[qanda:thread.alert.solved]]' : '[[qanda:thread.alert.unsolved]]');
    			ajaxify.refresh();
    		});
    	}
    
  • @julian Thanks. I'm going to be doing this in Harmony πŸ™‚

  • It's funny you ask because last night I discovered Carnegie Mellon University's "Foundations of Software Engineering" course uses a fork of NodeBB for a term project... one of the tasks looks to be adding the "toggle solved" button to the UI πŸ˜†

    ... but they're not using the Q&A plugin so I feel safe sharing this particular answer πŸ˜‰

  • @julian thinking about this it might be quicker to call the function directly using some jQuery and triggering off an element ID? However, I expect there to be multiple values that need to be passed along with the function, so maybe this isn't such a good idea 😱

  • @phenomlab the actual client-side function method Q&A calls (the one attached to the event) is sadly internal and inaccessible to mere mortals πŸ˜†

  • @julian thought so πŸ˜ƒ thanks

    Edit - actually, looking at this function, I can't see why it can't be invoked by jQuery?

    function markPostAsAnswer() {
    		var tid = ajaxify.data.tid;
    		var pid = $(this).parents('[data-pid]').attr('data-pid');
    
    		socket.emit('plugins.QandA.toggleSolved', { tid: tid, pid: pid }, function (err, data) {
    			if (err) {
    				return alertType('error', err);
    			}
    
    			alertType('success', data.isSolved ? '[[qanda:post.alert.correct_answer]]' : '[[qanda:thread.alert.unsolved]]');
    			ajaxify.refresh();
    		});
    	}
