First Post Editable Indefinitely
Mod Version: 1.1, by Lynne (Coder/Designer) Lynne is offline
Developer Last Online: Aug 2019 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 3.8.4 Rating: (4 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 51
Released: 22 Nov 2009 Last Update: 22 Nov 2009 Downloads: 207
Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Re-usable Code Translations  

I'm just reposting my 4.0 mod into the 3.8 section since it works just fine on a 3.8 board also.

Sometimes you want your users to be able to edit the first post in their thread indefinitely but still have a time limit on all other posts in the thread. This would be useful if they want to constantly update their first thread with new information, or an updated list of some sort way past the normal editing time limit. This modification will allow them to edit that first post indefinitely.

Notes
- I wrote this for my own site and it works exactly how I want it to. I have no plans to change it or expand it in any way
- No, you may not change the time limit, this only works for if the time limit for the first post is 0 - indefinite.



Version History:
1.1 2009-11-22: - initial release in 3.8 section by Lynne at vbulletin.org



To install:

1. Import product-lynne_first_post_editable.xml
2. By default, editing first post indefinitely is Off per forum. To turn it on, go into the Forum Manager > select your forum to Edit > Make first post in thread editable indefinitely > Yes


To uninstall:

1. Uninstall "First Post Editable Indefinitely"

Thanks Lynne. Very appreciated.

On a different matter (I know it's not related to this hack here but since you seem to know how to handle this...) just tell me: would you be able to code another hack like this here: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=136448 adding usergroup permissions too? Many people would really use it I'm sure.

I'm not going to be modifying this one for usergroups. It would be real easy to add that into the conditions (is_member_of()) in the plugins if you want to do that.

I was not talking about the hack here but about a new hack regarding the possibility to edit all posts (instead of only the first post) with no time limit for specific forums. (For usergroups, yes this could be added by conditions for sure).

So, it's a little bit like your hack but acting differently. It's just that nobody seems to want to do one. But if it's not in your plans it's OK anyway. I thank you for this hack here.

I am just writing products for my own site and then releasing them here. I have no need to have this time limit to be set by usergroup, so I just don't see myself spending any time writing a modification to do so.

No problem, I just tried... It's only that I would like to be able to have this for all posts, not only for the first one and I don't know how to do that.

I've posted the code for a plugin before on how to do that. It's somewhere on this site.

I know it's an included feature but it's a global feature applied on all forums! There is no possibility to change time limit on individual forums... This is why I'm asking for this feature...

Lynne, I checked doing intense search and did not find anything on this. I guess I might not have the right keywords.

Hmm Running 3.8.4 here and the forum + subforums I want this enabled on doesn't show an EDIT button for the users first post of the thread (the OP).

Anything I should check?

Did you set the option to Yes in the Forum Manager?
