Released: 31 Jan 2009 Last Update: 13 Jun 2009 Downloads: 3630
Not Supported Uses Plugins Auto-Template Translations  

As of 24 Nov 2017 this modification has been withdrawn.

This is an updated version of the popular modification, previously released by Xenon. It is released with his kind permission.

Basically, if member posts in a thread where they were the previous last poster, then if the conditions are met, their new post will be auto-merged into the previous post instead of creating a new "double" post.

A number of options are provided ;

Time Limit - if more than xxx minutes have passed since the last post, no merge is done.

Timestamp Spacer - if enabled, a timestamped spacer is added between the old post text and the new post text.

Post Timestamp Update - if enabled the newly merged post will have its post time updated to the new time, otherwise it retains the time of the original post.

Spacer Colour - allows you to set the colour of the spacer between merged posts.

Usergroup exceptions - Allows you to exempt certain usergroups from the doublepost merges.

Forum exceptions - Allows you to exempt certain forums form the doublepost merges.

All settings are located in vBulletin Options > Doublepost Prevention.


To install just unzip the XML and import into vB using the ACP Product Manager.


History:

v3.8.001 : First Release for vB 3.8.
v3.8.002 : Phrased the post separater.
v3.8.003 : Added JS Template - removing need to edit quick reply javascript file.
v3.8.004 : Updated spacer options.
v3.8.005 : Updated timestamp spacer to fix issue with large merge times.

vBulletin gets downloaded with uncompressed js's by default, right?
No. You get compressed by default. You have to redownload it as uncompressed and then make the edit.

And it seems that clearing your cache and then testing it again will make it so 2 posts don't show up with quick reply.

The code is there. I had strange problems with finding that, i downloaded the uncompressed one's but after three times downloading, then it was fine. So the problem was offcourse here. Sorry Paul and i really understand you getting sick of it.

But for people that can't find the code do this:

- Go to vbullletin.com.
- Go to members area
- Go to download vbulletin
- Choose more download options.
- Go to the dropdown: DOWNLOAD FILE
- Choose package - uncompressed javascripts and download it
- Unrar/unzip the downloaded file
- Go to clientscript and open the vbulletin_quick_reply with word/notepad and find the code. Edit it and upload it to your server.

Thats all. And if there still people with problems, its no problem for me to send you the edited file to you, so only you have to upload it to your server. Just send me a pm.

@PaulM
Thank you for this great mod! Keep up the good work!

@Paul M - donīt misunderstand me. The Fileedit is one thing - but the other Things are must haves.

This is an updated version of the popular modification
At this Time it is an downgraded version of the popular modification. And Xenons still does work with 3.8.x so there is no need to crossgrade to yours with less Features, less Phrases and one additionally Fileedit of the uncompressed vBulletin Files.

Hopefully it will be released soon and includes alle Features of Xenons.

No - that is not the Point. We only want Quality - not Quantity. Freesoftware does not mean that there has to be no Qualitycheck before releasing.

Do you really think posting things like "click uninstall" will encourage people to listen to you ?

Sometimes wonder why I (or anyone else) bothers to dedicate our FREE time to releasing things at all. This does exactly what I need it to do for my forums, like everything else I release, its written for me, and then kindly released for anyone else who may want to use it. If it doesnt suit your needs then fine, just dont bother with it, do not come in here moaning & complaining.

If you are not interested in "Installationclicks" why do you wrote this?

Please remember to click Mark as Installed if you use this modification.

1. Can you tell me why you did modifying it for your forum if Xenons-Mod still works and have more Features like yours?

2. Can you tell me why you call it a "Update"?

3. Can you tell me why you call it "Supported"?

Do what you want - but donīt call it Update of a perfect working MOD if it isnīt a Update. And please donīt call it supported or anything like that if you cant get around with critic to your work.

The question has no relevance to what I posted.

1. Ajax merging does not work.
2. Um, because it is.
3. See answer to 2.

Its an update, simple as that, just becasue it doesnt do what you want doesnt mean its not an update. Its also supported (as is) - again, just because I wont do what you want doesnt make it unsupported.

Dont bother replying in the thread, this is not a discussion thread. Clearly this mod is not for you so leave this thread for those who are using it.

Compressed JS is not an issue, you simply download the uncompressed version. I agree about the phrasing tho, Im testing an update atm (phrased), for release later in the week.
