I just installed on a 4.1.0 and even with this enabled I'm not seeing any changes in the threads.

The AdminCP stuff is there (and enabled).

Any ideas where to start troubleshooting?

I just installed on 4.1.0 and everything is working fine!

I think that maybe an option to add this to the very last post will be good too, maybe as an option???

Also what about this warning only on really inactive threads, for me its ok to bump a 6 year old thread lol but at least they must see the warning.

attention is a simple warning, there are other addons that allow nodump

I am aware that I used bad English :P


@ Supramania
The addon adds text to the message, do you have selected the forum in the options?


@ CRDeveloper

is possible, but this is not no bump hack.

The addon has the function to inform users that the content of the post is old and may no longer be true

there is Prevent bumping old Threads for vb4 http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showp...5&postcount=82

Confirmed bug... shows on all threads, even newly created.

Plugin - Old thread, is this correct code?
