vB Post Templates

vB4 Version: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=242246

This modification adds an extension to your User CP, and posting interface. Both which allow you to pre-create "Post Templates". This is useful for repetitive posts, such as common replies to commonly answered questions.

A quick example would be here on vBulletin.org, all the moderators post nearly the same reply to users who are unlicensed, with this modification they would only need to insert a post template in their User CP, and then they could easily push that template into any post, quickly.

Ofcourse this could be used as an actual "Template", for users who make certain posts that are always constructed in some way or form, an example for that could be people who release modifications who like to structure their first post, and generally try to do universally.

Another use would be simply storing common responses or phrases, and you'd simply be able to push them into posts quickly without typing them


How does it work?

Very simple, in your User CP you can create two new things. One is categories for your post templates, and you'll need atleast one category before you can create a post template. Then secondly ofcourse, you can create post templates.

Once you have atleast one of each, when making new topics, or replies, or blogs, or anywhere with the full post editor, you'll see a new option integrated into the vBulletin WYSIWYG called 'Post Templates', clicking it will open a menu showing you your post templates categorised. Click any of the post templates, and AJAX will quickly request then spit the contents of that post template, into your post!



Features
  • Fully Integrates into vBulletin WYSIWYG editor
  • Unlimited amount of categories/templates allowed.
  • Fast template inclusion, through AJAX.


Translations
Spanish - Thanks to dvbusuario

FAQ
1) Does this work on lower vB versions?
A) I've not tested it, so feel free if you wish, but you may experience errors.

Thumbs up Works On vb3.7x

Latest version works on vb3.7x just to let you know. (zero errors)

SUGGESTIONS:
  1. Your term "Defined" should be changed to "Shared" in the phrases. Shared is much clearer then defined.
  2. The usergroup permissions should be set to off for all usergroups by default. Even banned usergroups have permission to use the templates!

Question mystery category and template

An admin deleted a user's shared category and template but it is still being shown to all members as if it was shared. The admin logged in as the user to do the deletions.

Is there a way for the admin to manage all the templates to delete them?

We have a mystery category and template that simply will not go away!

This seems to be working for me now, at first I didn't realise I had to go in to each usergroup to enable it and although it was already enabled by default it didn't appear in the User CP until after I had saved the settings on the usergroups.

Thanks a lot, this seems like a great mod and something I've been hunting for for ages! I'm adding some search phrases here to help other people looking for the same thing:

Vbulletin Insert text from link
Vbulletin Insert bbcode from link
Vbulletin insert text from dropdown menu

Would be nice if you could only permit certain groups to use certain defined templates (semi global templates). I could give my staff a set of defined templates for PMs/warnings/infractions, and give users a different set of defined templates.

Is this an existing feature and I am not seeing it? It appears that any "defined/global" template can be viewed by everyone, but I'm not sure I understand correctly.

Just import the plugin xml file (it's just a plugin, not a product/addon!).

You also have to add this code to the existing plugin vB Post Templates: Cache Templates:
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Top of this page to the right, just below navbar is search this mod...it comes in handy.

Does this add on allow fields in a template ? So a user just fills in the blank fields and the template wil then post the formatting needed along with the values ?

I used this mod on my site before & it worked great, but i've just installed it on my new site & now it doesn't seem to work.
Ive created a category & template inside the category, i go to make a new post, select the template but it doesn't get added to the post. Is there a problem with the ajax loading?

I've disabled all other mods leaving just this mod, but it's the same.
