Introduction

I found a thread where the user was wondering if there was a feature within vBulletin that would allow you to specify if certain users posts can be edited or not. This is the outcome of about 5 hours work (with waiting on help with AJAX stuff).

Requirements
This has been tested on vBulletin v3.7.0 Beta 6 and should work with all vB 3.7.x versions. It has not been tested on lower versions of vBulletin.
Installation
Upload product XML
Features
Completely removes the ability for anyone to edit a users posts.
User IDs defined in the vBulletin Options.
Works with Quick Edit (checks after user submits)
Works with full edit (checks before loading page).

Interesting idea but I think the Super Admin should still have editing abilities.

Could someone help me by explaining the function of this mod in some extra detail,
What sort of situation would this mod be useful for?

I believe its best use is to make sure moderators do not edit other moderator's postings.

Not yet. I just wanted to get the basics for the person who needed this mod.

They will sooner or later. Probably in the next version.

This could be useful if you don't want moderators editing Administrator posts or such. or completely making staff posts uneditable for anyone.

That is one use. :)

bummer. well I guess I won't install just yet because I need members to still be able to edit their own posts. I'll be keeping my eye on this mod and thanks again King.

Your welcome. The update will probably either tomorrow or late tonight cause I am super tired.

OK. Updated with that minor change. :)

It was a matter of adding one check to both plugins. :) And anything I can do to help the people that actually want to use my modifications.

The check you just added, is it an option you can turn off?

Not yet. It can be easily added. Just give me a list of wanted features and I will do my best to add them in. I started with the bare basics.

All I need is an option for the SuperAdmin to be allowed to edit the post. If you are going to leave in the option for the poster to be able to edit their own post, I would rather have that option settable to off/on.

This year is long. So you could only hope so. Guess I forgot about this. Will update soon enough. After the hack with errors.

This hack does nothing what it says. It makes ALL users uneditable. From what I see, only the users that are specified can edit their posts. Just wanted to save a few people some headaches.:down:

What set up do you have? Have you supplied user ids within the ACP?

I have the newest version of VB, and if you install this it stops ALL users from editing posts, even admins and mods can't edit. When I read this I took it as only users specified could not have their posts edited. That doesn't seem to be the case.

Hm... Odd. I have this installed and tested on RC4 I believe. I don't see WHY the code would have changed that much.

There is an "Uneditable User IDs" inside of the Posting options.

I've allready configured my id in that place, but noone can edit posts on my forum ( using vb 3.7 gold)

Is there any chance to add Editable X posts by Y users if user complete Z condition? Editable posts can be marked when browsing a thread.

Same problem here....I'm not complaining as much as just letting people know.

My schedule should allow me time to code on Friday or saturday. I am going to attempt fixing this to work before adding features.

Much appreciated, the concept is great if it worked well

But note that this will not include new features. This will be strictly to make it compatible with gold.

i think im the one that asked for this idea, and what i suggested is when an administrator is making a post, he can chose whether he wants this post from being uneditable by anyone else, from other administrators. this is a purpose for owners to make a post about something without letting another staff member edit your post u made, it should also have different abilities such as [ Moderators can do the same, no other mod can edit his post, but someone who over ranks him can ]

I'll add it to a tracker, but can't say I promise it...
