Member Badges Fixed + Additions

Posted (edited)

In case you weren't aware, the upgrade to IPB4 kind of blew up our custom member badge code. Earlier, I tried my best to fix it, but with minimal knowledge of IPB4 code and coding in general, all I could do was recycle some very primitive and ugly code, which meant some functions were lost and a couple of annoying bugs (like missing badges if you didn't select one).

Fast forward two months and I've finally figured out how to fix the code properly. Although to be fair, I only spent a few hours a month researching before I gave up. Anyway... this means the code should be more streamlined (in theory; it's still a mess TBH) and some functions from before IPB4 should now be possible!

The lowdown...

Allegiance-specific badges are back! For example Corrin (M), Corrin (F) and Azura when you select Hoshido or Nohr. There are several more... See if you can find them : )

The SFS-exclusive Pixel Marth is now available for participants from last year's SFS. It can be selected via the Member dropdown, in the Archanea section. If you're not an original participant or staff member, selecting it does nothing.

(This year's SFS participants will eventually be able to select the Pixel Marth badge and maybe another exclusive badge...)

Members who haven't selected a badge or allegiance should no longer have a blank/missing badge.

(Not a bug: On mobile, badges will not display. This is to save space, etc.)

Staff members can now select their badges and allegiances. Once again, priority is given to the Staff badge.

Badges now appear outside of the default Serenes Forest skin.

--And to celebrate the occasion, there are some new badges. Mainly Echoes and Jugdral, but possibly a few more dotted around.

Finally, please let me know if you notice any bugs or strange happenings (there are multiple failsafes in place, but with so many conditionals, it's very easy to make mistakes).

Also, as usual, you're welcome to suggest new badges, feedback or improvements, etc.

Oh yeah, you can post here to test your badge as well and party.

Yeah, sure.

Just keep in mind that due to factors like artistic inspiration, number of existing badges, I can't accommodate everyone's requests. I'm mainly asking to get a feel for things and maybe get a spark of inspiration ^^

I do have some ideas for the next batch of badges, but I already spent most of this afternoon fixing and testing the badge code. So it might be a few weeks (or months) before you see anything new.

Nice work, Vincent! Altough I admit that I'd like to see a Lyon badge and It's not  because he is my favorite character ever or anything like that, I swear!

lachesis badge is displaying blank, with or without allegiance selected

screenshot of the example: Untitled.png?raw=1

double-checking the badge logbook, the badge is still on server under the name jugdral5.png

i suspect the issue may have to do with the name in the list being changed from the older "Raquesis" to newer "Lachesis;" possibly disrupting a pointer list somewhere
