Disable Default Redirect in Move and Merge Threads
by djbaxter
17 Jul 2010 01:32

The default behavior for moving or merging threads is to leave a non-expiring redirect in the original thread.

I find this annoying, since it clutters up the thread listings. Most of the time I either want no redirect or at most an expiring redirect.

This mod changes the default to NO REDIRECT (you can still manually select redirect or expiring redirect fo any threads where you want it).

1. MOVE
In Thread Administration Templates > template threadadmin_movethread

Find:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.



Change two instances of checked="checked". Replace with:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.



Similarly, in Thread Administration Templates > template threadadmin_movethreads

Find:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Change two instances of checked="checked". Replace with:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.


2. MERGE

In Thread Administration Templates > template threadadmin_mergethreads

Find:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Change to:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Wrong section. Needs to go in Template Edits.

Since the 'Yes" box is not checked by default, the redirect that is checked wouldn't take affect anyway until the 'Yes" box is checked, would it?

You're my hero!

The "Yes" box IS checked by default. That is the whole point.

Look on last version of Vbulletin 4.0.5. The default value on clean setup is to don't leave redirect link. Maybe there is an option on setting for that check it.

I am running 4.05. vBulletin.org hasn't upgraded their options yet so the designation of 4.04 for this mod is the highest available.

I had the redirect problem in 4.03. In 4.04, it seemed to be fine. It reappeared in 4.05. Hence this mod.

If there is an option in settings to turn this off, please point me to it.

Ok, I must have missed that then. I didn't think it was when I tested it.

Thanks, this is what I was looking for since long.

hello, does anyone know if this works also on 3.8 ????

thanks in advance!

we have a similar problem since we have an ad section where parents sell childrens toys, and have the right to move their thread to the inactive section,
but unfortunately forget to change the default setting and leave permanent redirects (about 30 per day) which are hard to remove from our mods..!!

That sounds like a tedious manual operation. Have you checked out this mod:
http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=275314

Not sure if it'll be exactly what you need, but it could help.

This should probably work in vB 3.8x: Move threads with leave no redirect as default or Expired redirect as default - you may need the suggested modification at http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showp...1&postcount=12 in that thread.

Really? It's a couple of quick template edits. If you find that tedious or complicated, you're going to be limited in the extent to which you can customize your forum(s).

Really not the same thing at all.

adpar 22 Dec 2013 23:07

thanks alot to both of you!
yes indeed the bzcomputers hint is not what we need,
since not all threads are to be deleted on a certain period of time.
its interesting to know though that this option is also available.

just checked out the
Move threads with "leave no redirect" as default or Expired redirect as default
its exactly what we need !!

million thanksss!!!!!!!!!!!
