Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Additional Files Translations  

About DEM:
Default Editor Messages (what a name) allows forum specific messages to populate the editor when users create newthreads. This, originally custom modification, has been converted into a proper vB product for vB.org users. DEM uses instances and messages in combination to allow for very specific message display and order.

Uses:
Have you or your moderators ever had to clean up messes in your community because your users simply ignore or forget the rules? Or maybe you have a specific forum where you want all new posts to follow a template and you find that no matter how much you ask it still isn't followed correctly?

Then this mod is for you! When a user makes a new thread they're most likely not going to go around reading all the rules before they do so (we can still hope, can't we?) but if a chunk of text appears right where they're typing they're bound to stop their fingers and open their eyes!

Features:
  • Fully phrased allowing for translations and multiple languages.
  • Instances! Allows for simple configuration amongst multiple forums with the same message(s).
  • Robust! If you delete a message any instances that used it will default to no bound message. Prevents errors without hindering usage.
  • An "override" setting allows for your message to populate the editor even if other text already exists in there.
  • Auto-delete / replace message(s) on post creation or, with javascript, in the editor itself with your own custom content.
  • Extensive message customization. Specify additional customizable content before and / or after message(s).
-----

Installation requires FTP access for the ACP options and navigation. Upload all files first then import the product.

Support:
Support will not be provided for vBulletin 4 Alpha, Beta or RC versions.
Low priority will be given to posters who do not have this marked as installed
In some cases, support can only be provided if I have an admin login and ftp access.

Changelog:
  • v1.0.0
    • Initial Release
  • v1.1.0
    • Feature: Auto-delete messages on post creation. Both text before and after the message(s) will remain.
    • Feature: Setting and phrase to replace deleted messages with specific text. BBCode is allowed and, if your settings allow it, HTML is allowed.
    • Feature: Phrase-able text on message quote tag. Let's your users know what exactly this message is.
    • Feature: Settings link added in the ACP navigation tab for easy access.
    • Change: Submit button text changed from edit to save when editing an instance or message.
  • v1.2.0
    • Feature: Auto-delete messages using javascript (immediately on editor focus).
    • Feature: Phrase-able text before and after notices without disrupting auto-delete / replace.
    • Feature: Expanded options for auto-delete / replace. Allows for never, always, only with javascript, only with post submission.
Notes:
See Mr. Running's post for screenshots on how to remove message wrap-arounds.

Edit: Here are some thoughts.
How about an option to change font color/colour as I was thinking of making it lighter almost a fade effect.

Presently works when starting a thread only.
Option to have it in the Quick Reply and Go Advanced editor.

You can use BBCodes in all messages and phrases. However, they will only show up on WYISIWY mode.

I'm going to hold off on branching to threads (assuming that's what you meant) and other areas where the editor is present for now.

This is a fab mod! It would be great if one could select multiple forums for each message, instead of one at a time.

The same problem exists for table pan_dem_instances'.

Nothing to do with vBSEO. It's a bug in the product.

Sorry about that, probably the first time I ever forgot to put table_prefix in there. We all make mistakes.

Reimport the product and it should be all good to go.

Thanks for the quick fix. Can confirm that it now installs correctly.
Many thanks to both of you ... Re-Installed.

Okay, I turned this mod off for a long time waiting for 2.0 but I used it for the last month but discovered that once a title is entered and the Tab is clicked on the keyboard to start the message the cursor will not go into the editor.

Myself...I use the mouse but some users tend to use the tab button.

So Yeah, it works with the mouse but not the Tab.

I didn't know people were still interested in this mod.

hsoen: I can't really help you until you describe what exactly doesn't work.

Mr. Running: I'm sorry to keep you waiting, but as you know I have taken a leave from coding. I'll still be happy to assist you on this modification, however, and will start by commencing work on v2 (hopefully I still have files around somewhere!).

I will look into the tab version and see if I can replicate this issue.
