Change Posts Owner

Created by Marius Czyz aka Phalynx.

Tested on vBulletin 3.6, 3.7 and 3.8

What does this modification do?
It can change the owner and date of multiple threads and post. For this, it adds another option to your mod actions on forumdisplay, showthread and search results. After selecting some threads or posts, you can choose the new owner by name or by UserID. "By name" works with the AJAX namesuggestion, we all know it from writing a PM. After changing the name, it rebuilds thread/forum counters and post counter of old and new user. Attachments will also be assigned to new user.

Installtime: <1 minutes
Difficulty: very easy (1 product)

Demo is not available, due to missing permissions on my board.

Please click Mark as INSTALLED, otherwise I will not support you.

Question Feature request: Separate date and owner change permissions

Thx for this mod!

Feature request:
Change only date and not owner of a post/thread. I.e. separate Owner and Date change permissions and add in the ACP a new permission field with the name "Which usergroup should be able to change the date?".

Is this supposed to be for Admins only? I installed it and the Mods can see it in the Mod pulldown menu, but after hitting Go, it tells them they do not have sufficient priveledges. So far only Admins can use it.

It can only change threads/posts of normal forums. Changing SG' discussion is a nice addition, will think about it.

Just a note: I'm on holidays from today up tu thursday (29 January). No support will be given in this time.

yes it would be a nice idea if you manage to do it.

for example, i really want to move some threads to the social groups and i can't do it... with your mod, i can copy paste the thread to a new discussion and after change my name of each post to the real poster name

long way but sure way ^^

'have nice holidays

Today, I needed to change the owner of a post from "Guest" to the name of a new member, and your mod did the job.
