vB Post Templates

vB4 Version: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=242246

This modification adds an extension to your User CP, and posting interface. Both which allow you to pre-create "Post Templates". This is useful for repetitive posts, such as common replies to commonly answered questions.

A quick example would be here on vBulletin.org, all the moderators post nearly the same reply to users who are unlicensed, with this modification they would only need to insert a post template in their User CP, and then they could easily push that template into any post, quickly.

Ofcourse this could be used as an actual "Template", for users who make certain posts that are always constructed in some way or form, an example for that could be people who release modifications who like to structure their first post, and generally try to do universally.

Another use would be simply storing common responses or phrases, and you'd simply be able to push them into posts quickly without typing them


How does it work?

Very simple, in your User CP you can create two new things. One is categories for your post templates, and you'll need atleast one category before you can create a post template. Then secondly ofcourse, you can create post templates.

Once you have atleast one of each, when making new topics, or replies, or blogs, or anywhere with the full post editor, you'll see a new option integrated into the vBulletin WYSIWYG called 'Post Templates', clicking it will open a menu showing you your post templates categorised. Click any of the post templates, and AJAX will quickly request then spit the contents of that post template, into your post!



Features
  • Fully Integrates into vBulletin WYSIWYG editor
  • Unlimited amount of categories/templates allowed.
  • Fast template inclusion, through AJAX.


Translations
Spanish - Thanks to dvbusuario

Sure, edit the template editor_toolbar_on:
Find:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Remove it, then find:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Below add:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Save, and it should work. Unfortunately there's no way to do it without editing the template manually.

Wow! This looks very cool. My mods would love me if I installed this. I'll be testing this out on my test site soon.

You can only move this BBCode and not all other additional?

- dvb - This mod hooks into the additional buttons template hook, I'm afraid the template doesn't have any other hooks to plug into.

- Lynne - Glad it'll be of use to you

This works perfect. It's a good alternative to canned entries. I second the usergroup options, and perhaps you could also auto-insert a title?

One more option could be "common templates" If a template is set as common, then it would be available for all authorized users. At template creation, you'd check a box to mark it as common.

Awesome, I like this. I would want usergroup controls though, and Lionel's idea is a good one.

Does this work anywhere the WYSIWYG editor is? Like Pms, Blog, etc
