House Sorting

House SortingP Plugin for MyBB.

About.

  • Users can join groups by select box or doing a quiz.
  • Of course, this plugin is particularly suited for forums and RPGs that are addressing the world of Harry Potter, since it's idea is based on the HP sorting hat ceremony.
  • But it can also be used for forums with any other topic though, since it's highly customable.
  • The quiz can be adjusted to any other topic by editing the files questions.xml and answers.xml.
  • A setting can replace all terms referring to Harry Potter by general terms.
  • The quiz can be deactivated with the "Direct Group Selection Only" setting.
  • New users can be redirected to the sorting page after registration.
  • All users can be forced to join one of the selected groups.
  • Between 2 and 4 groups can be set for joining (If "Direct Group Selection Only" is enabled there is no limitation of available groups in ACP).
  • Users can be allowed/denied to change the selected group afterwards.
  • It can be made a requirement to answer all questions to get the quiz result.
  • If the quiz result is inconclusive, the user can select between the groups with the highest (but equal) points.
