This hack will allow you and your members to check for existing topics, or similar ones, of the thread you plan to create when at newthread.php.

This should help to prevent double topics that often appear from newbish members who neglect to use the search feature.

It uses the exact functions as the "similar threads" feature, therefore has the same accuracy.

Tested to work on:
  • vBulletin 3 RC2
  • Internet Explorer 6 (with Javascript enabled)
  • Mozilla Firebird 0.7 / Mozilla 1.5 (with Javascript enabled)

------------------------------------------------

Tweak #1

If you would like the find icon to show upon typing in the input box, and then disappear if the input box is empty upon change, please do the following:


In the template newthread, find:

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

Replace it with:

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

In the same template, find:

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

Replace it with:

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

------------------------------------------------

Attached is a screenshot.

Inside the zip are English, German, and French installation instructions. Please be aware I used a software translator for the German and French docs.

Enjoy.

Thx Velocd for this hack.
I do the translation in french for vbulletin-fr.com and I join it on this post, because I see that you put in the zip file a speed translation by a software translator

I ran into a small problem with this. I have a thread titled:

Nesting conditional statements in templates

It did not find it when I tested for the exact same phrase or conditional statements, either one. And that thread was in the same forum.

Also, the button is off before you click it the first time. Shouldn't it be on so you know it is available to click (or am I missing something here)?

It uses the same functions as the smiilar threads feature, so if it's not finding it I'm not sure what to say.

Create two threads called "Nesting conditional statements in templates", go into one of them, and scroll to the bottom and see if the other thread shows up in the "similar threads" feature.

Also, the button is off before you click it the first time. Shouldn't it be on so you know it is available to click (or am I missing something here)?
There is an onchange Javascript behavior on the subject field, and when the subject field changes that icon becomes active. Otherwise, you don't want somebody clicking the button when the subject field is empty (although it would just give a Javascript alert box).

Shouldn't the icon become active when you type soemthing in there? It only becomes active here after I click it.

And yes the title shows up in the similar threads when there are 2 of them.

I never changed any of the default settings for the similar threads in the Admin CP. Do those need to be changed, too?

Ah ha!

Good point. I'll tweak it a bit, since that does seem more suitable.

And yes the title shows up in the similar threads when there are 2 of them.
Are both topics exactly (case-sensitive) the same? Maybe there is a case-sensitive problem in the hack.

I'll look into the code to see what could be causing the conflict of it not showing another of the same topic.

Edit:

Check out the attachment Boofo, I tested the topic on my localhost and it seems to work.

Thank you, sir. Let me know when you have something and I will be glad to test it out for you. I'm really looking forward to this hack.

Yes, they are exactly the same in case-sensitivity. But it wouldn't even find a part of the title either (i.e. conditional statements).

Could it be because they are in a private forum and passworded as to why it won't work here??
