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

vB Version: 3.8.0 Rating: (53 votes - 4.70 average) Installs: 636
Released: 13 Jan 2009 Last Update: 13 Jan 2009 Downloads: 3658
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 outdated (made for vB 3.6.*)

Hoping a new release is made for vb4... perhaps with a few options in the ACP?

Hello,

seems not to work on vbulletin 3.8.7 - there is no "Check for similar threads?"-Option in the AdminCP.

For vB 4, the same one like this here is the xml attached
If you have Auto tagged modification installed from here (vb org( the attached xml doesn't work

If you do have the Auto tagging modification installed then use this mod instead:

It should work, if i remember rightly it was one of the ajax features in the auto tag mod that needs turning off (or in this mod cant remember which) and they live happily together
