[Ajax] Check for similar thread before posting a new one

Not Supported Uses Plugins Auto-Template Additional Files  

Hi there!

I decided to give my old Add-on a little update.

You love the 'similar threads' function and you are sick of duplicate threads just because your users don't use the search function?

Why not just combine them?

This Add-on will grab the thread title the user typed in and it will load a small box (using Ajax magic ) with 5 similar threads just like the 'similar threads' function that you can normally find under an already posted thread.

The box also tells the user to search through the similar threads first BEFORE starting a new one.


Features:
- indicated if you already subscribed to one or more similar threads
- hover over the title and it gives a little preview of the thread's content
- no edits whatsoever needed, just import the product file, enable the Add-on and it works (well, it should )
- you can turn it off for certain forums or
- you can turn it off completely without leaving any code that messes your templates/files
- it can be translated
- don't like it anymore? Remove the product and you'll never see that Add-on again


Known issues:
- none


Things to consider:

It uses jQuery to get the information from ajax.php. jQuery is great and you can do many great things with it and unlike the vBulletin method it's quite easy to understand.
Here's the version I use: http://code.google.com/p/jqueryjs/do...s&downloadBtn=

Just download the file from the location and put it into the 'clientscript' folder on your server without renaming the file.

jQuery 1.3 is out, read this if you would like to update: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showp...1&postcount=27



Installation:
  1. Download jQuery as described above.
  2. Import the attached file using the Product Manager. Go to your vBulletin settings and search for 'Check for similar threads?'.
  3. Enable it.


Important:
It adds 2 new templates, it changes 1 template and it edits 2 files. I highly doubt that it will break you vBulletin but do a back-up and be on the safe side.



Version history:
2.0 -> this release
1.0 -> outdated (made for vB 3.6.*)

With 3.8.4 is not working for me. The mod doesn't show anything. I'm using JQuery 1.3, like you say above.

vb4 plugin error

When I try installing this plugin at my vb4 forum, I got this error:

Warning: fetch_template() calls should be replaced by the vB_Template class in [path]/includes/functions.php on line 3895

Warning: array_merge() [function.array-merge]: Argument #1 is not an array in [path]/includes/class_bootstrap.php(1133) : eval()'d code on line 4


For the benefit of other users, pls don't install it at your vb4 forum because I've tested this plugin, and it'll give you the above error msg whenever you want to 'post a thread'.

If you've it installed, just disable it, then your forum should be working fine.

I have installed this on my site but I have a couple concerns.

1. How does this effect performance on my server (shared Server) once I enable this mod?
2. Is there a way to list what forums I want to include rather then exclude and this make more sense?
3. I noticed that the results this script produces are threads that are listed in our hidden mod forums which are thread results we dont want our members to see, how can I tell this script to exclude results from certain forums for example hidden mod forums?


Thanks
