4107: vBulletin 4.1.4 to 4.1.12

This modification is not available for vBulletin 4.0.x

This modification is not required for vBulletin 4.2.x Onwards.

For 4.1.0 to 4.1.3, see this post.

This is a current version of the popular modification, originally developed for the early 3.x series by Xenon.

Basically, if member posts in a thread where they were the previous last poster, then if the conditions are met, their new post will be auto-merged into the previous post instead of creating a new "double" post.

A number of options are provided ;

Time Limit - if more than xxx minutes have passed since the last post, no merge is done.

Timestamp Spacer - if enabled, a timestamped spacer is added between the old post text and the new post text.
Other spacer choices provided are no spacer, a default, or a custom spacer.

Spacer Colour - allows you to set the colour of the spacer between merged posts (if one is enabled).

Post Timestamp Update - if enabled the newly merged post will have its post time updated to the new time, otherwise it retains the time of the original post.

Usergroup exceptions - Allows you to exempt certain usergroups from the doublepost merges.

Forum exceptions - Allows you to exempt certain forums form the doublepost merges.

IP Address Check - Specifies if the poster IP should be checked, if enabled, the post will only be merged if the user and ip address are the same.

All settings are located in vBulletin Options > Doublepost Prevention.

To install just unzip the XML and import into vB using the ACP Product Manager.

Paul, When a double post is made does it query up as a new post? There was something like this in 3.8 but I can't find it and wanted to know if yours did the same as I liked that feature.

Wrong wording I am sure but what I mean is if someone posts then that same poster posts again before a reply and I have looked at it before the double post merge will it show as a new post again?

Does that make sense?

If I look at a post then they post again before someone else replies it will show up as a new post again due to the double post.

The 3.8 version does not work correctly on vb4 (see here).

If your happy with the faults then you can leave it as is.

If you have the bump option enabled, then yes, it will update the timestamp of the post and it will show up as unread again.
