3.7RC1, I don't see any option to enable the new thread posting rules when editing forums.

Edit: Had to CTRL-F5 my whole ACP for some reason, got it. It's showing up under my vBSEO options group though. You might want to give it it's own header.

This mod is a life-saver for me and my classifieds forums, since I get a lot of one-post-wonders coming through dropping ads w/o reading my forum rules. Good stuff man, thanks very much.

Tks a lot :D
I expect help to increase search function ;) I will use to alert members to do it ....
* a ideia : maybe in future you plan differents rules/advices to different foruns. I think will be a [more] useful addon

You can set rules for individual forums. ;) Edit the forum and if you put a description in there, it will override the global bit.

Fantastic! I will probably show a few rules and link them to the rest, that way they will have no come backs that they didnt know where they were.

Will be installing this when I upgrade.

Thanks.

I am having a problem. Its showing only in my default skin. Its not showing up my other two styles.
What may cause this prob?

Sorry, Did forgot to put $newthread_posting_rules for other styles. he..he..

Installed, works fine. Thanks :up:

As I personnaly create most of the leading Threads on my forum, how can we extend this mod so that posting rules are also displayed on "Reply to Posts", so that the folks in my ZOO stop telling that they didnīt see or they didnīt know where the posting rules were?:rolleyes:

Would it make sense to have this option added for the next release? :)

Installed, great for new threads but is there ANY way this can be modded to also show up above the quick reply box and when invoking "new reply" or advanced reply?

If anyone knows how or has an alternate hack that does this please let me know.

Nice product...thanks dude :)

One thing though, is it possible by any chance to have it to display by post count option as well?

eg// Only display forum rules on XX and YY forums to forum members with less than 100 posts.
Because all of my forums longer term members (well, not all but many) have decent posting habits now after moderators making them post correctly in their early days!

in case anyone else hasnt figured this out already, I got it to work for Post Reply and Quote Reply by doing the following.

1. Open the product-newthread_posting_rules.xml file in Dreamweaver or your favorite editor and resave it as product-newreply_posting_rules.xml

2. Open your new product-newreply_posting_rules.xml file, then find & replace the phrase "newthread" with "newreply" (i believe it changed 30 or 31 phrases), then save the file again.

3. Find the following text in Template newreply
<span class="smallfont" style="float:$stylevar[right]"><strong>$vbphrase[thread]</strong>: $threadinfo[prefix_plain_html] <a href="showthread.php?$session[sessionurl]t=$threadinfo[threadid]">$threadinfo[title]</a></span>
$vbphrase[reply_to_thread]
</td>
</tr>

Below that add the following text
$newreply_posting_rules

4. Upload product-newreply_posting_rules.xml as a product just as you did the new thread posting rules.

Once installed, it will say you have two New Thread Posting Rules products installed (if you hover over them you will see they are different) and it will also show two of the same in the vBulletin Options menu.

Lastly, it also adds a second rules box in your Forum Manager below the first one that was added. Simply copy and paste your rules to that box as well or make different rules, save them and youre done.

The rules will now appear when posting New Thread, Post Reply or Quote Reply.

I know this is an old thread, but this has to be one of the most useful mods ever for vBulletin...I love it! :D

ok, well I didnt get this working on Vb4 but instead did the mod myself. Its a piece of cake. For the template you want to edit (or repeat for all of them if you want to)

Go to Style Manager --> Edit Templates --> New Posting Templates --> newthread....

find this bit of code
{vb:raw prefix_options}
</select>
<p class="description"></p>
</vb:if>

Underneath this closing if statement, add the text you have in the vbulletin options > advanced posting rules.. text area (or just add the text you want)
Paste it in here. Save and reload the template.
Job done. All new thread postings will have your advanced posting rules posted and formatted above the post titles.
heres an example of some new rules you could edit to your needs.

<ul>
<li><span style="color: #ff0000"><span><strong>Please post in the correct section for the topic you are posting about.</strong></span></span> <span style="color: #ff0000"><span><strong>Take a minute to check through the forums list and find the correct forum or subforum.</strong></span></span></li>
<li><span style="color: #ff0000"><span><strong>Use a descriptive title for your thread and start it with your xxyy details </strong><span style="color: #ff6600"><strong>[Example Thread Title] xxyy product - is not working correctly please help.</strong></span></span></span></li>
<li><span style="color: #ff0000"><span><span><strong>Remember, the more descriptive and well written your threads are, the more accurate and plentiful the help offered will be.</strong></span></span></span></li>
</ul>
