View Full Version : Uncheck URL Autoparse Checkbox

Honestly, I never understood why there isn't a global on/off switch in the adminCP for the autoparse checkbox (or maybe I'm too stupid to know which one it is, lol) but I've been editing php files to uncheck it .... until the plugin system came along!!!

So I put together what I THINK are all the neccessary places to uncheck this by default and I THINK it should be ok but if a few of you can double check me I would really appreciate it!!! The only one I can't safely turn off yet is the one for PM's so it's not included in v1. If someone finds a nice place for it, I will gladly add it to the file!! I like critisism so if someone sees or knows of a better way to accomplish what this does, by all means, please speak up!!

One XML file that installs 7 different plugins.

That's it .... no fuss ... no muss .... no coconuts!!!
Please note that these do not "disable" the checkbox.
Users can still use the checkbox if they desire.
And they can still use the insert hyperlink button.

....and if you like this plugin, then you MIGHT want to check back soon cause I have another hack to be used in conjunction with this that will automatically parse all "onsite url's" (like posted forum and thread links) even if the autoparse checkbox is turned off .... only trouble is THAT one requires file edits while this one doesn't .... so I'm keeping them seperated (check the "modifications" forum in a couple more days).

edited to say I did post the onsite autoparsing code modications:

You mean a picture??
There's nothing to take a picture of bro.

Install the plugin and the autoparse checkbox won't be checked anymore.
Pages like editpost, newthread, newreply, newpoll, usernote, and inline merging of posts.

I'm kind of confused on how to install this. I think it's a great thing but lost on install.

So let's walk you through it.
Feel free to speak up again if your still confused.

1) Download file
2) Unzip file to a folder
3) Open a web browser
4) Go into your site's AdminCP
5) Find "Plugin System" in left column
6) Uncollapse it and click "Download/Upload Plugins"
7) Scroll to bottom and click the "Browse" button.
8) Find the folder which you unzipped my file to.
9) Upload my "uncheck_url_plugin-v1.xml" file.
10) Your done!!

There should no longer be a checkmark in any of the "parse all links in text" checkboxes by default.

To fix the Edit unparse url, do the following:

Edit the Plugin: Uncheck_URL_editpost_update.

Change the Hook Location to editpost_edit_complete.

Change the Plugin PHP Code to $checked['parseurl'] = '';.

Save it, and it will work.

Fantastic hack!!!

Works on new posts, and even on edit (with addition of post) and save..
works great!

This is a great modification to stop some of the newbish users who just spam links to other sites, they will be required to atleast use the hyperlink feature.

Thanks again!
