This modification is in the archives.
vB Version: 3.5.1 Rating: (2 votes - 4.50 average) Installs: 15
Released: 05 Nov 2005 Last Update: Never Downloads: 43
Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Template Edits Code Changes  

Should be in vB by default but it isn't.. This is why I made it

Description:
This hack let's you select directly from the thread wether all new replies are moderated or not.
You can even use the inline moderation to select more than 1 thread which replies must be confirmed first before somebody else can see them.
The default vB function only allows thread moderation by forum and/or by usergroup.
This modification uses the default routines to handle the moderation. This means all the known functions have remained (overview of moderated posts in the AdminCP).


Features:
usergroup permissions, you can select what usergroup can moderate the individual threads
select which thread is moderated, no need to have a whole forum moderated
uses default vB functions, moderated posts are shown in the adminCP and in the modCP

Notes:
Altough I improved my english a lot over the time you should rework the phrases and give them a more professional look
This one is running on my community without any problems. To be sure it works for you as good as for me I re-installed the modification on my community with the help of this product file and this instructions.


Installation:
I tried to add as much plugins as possible but you have still work on some files.
DO A BACKUP OF YOUR DATABASE!!

Upload the file bitfield_mrnasemoderatethread.xml to /include/xml/

Then import product-mrnasemoderatethread.xml. This file will do most of the work for you.

Then open instructions_mrnasemoderatethread.txt and follow the instructions carefully.

Now edit the usergroups you would like to allow the usage of this modification. The default value is 'do not allow to moderate individual threads' so in most cases you just have to edit the Administration Group.


Well, try it out and give me some nice feedback!

I agree, should be in vB by default

* Snakey clicks install

1 Question: could it be made as a full plugin/product? (no code changes?)

Nice Hack, though I prefer Hacks with less file edits

To get rid of the class_dm_threadpost.php file edits:

To get ird of the functions_log_error.php edits (requires vBulletin >= 3.5.1):
fetch_modlogtypes

To get rid of the functions_newpost.php file edit

All those Plugins are untested, but should work theoretically.

All look into the sky and hail the gods, thank god someone has FINALY had the same idea I had and wots more they have actualy got it working..

Blessed are the Coders...

Seriously though, this SHOULD of been standard army issue in vBull from day one as sometimes a thread can get out of hand easily and go way off topic, this solves it nicely for me and so is worth the journey to the installed button.

Thanks a lot, I am 100% sure this will be a much used hack..

Andreas: Nope, not working for me.. I had to re-install the code modifications because the plugins were not working.

I really appreciate your help but it doesn't help a lot to post unfinished/not working code snippets because some may thing those are final and may get disappointed when they are not working

Hi,

First, thanks to MrNase and Andreas for making this modification available.

I installed this, using MrNase's original concept, and it appears to work. (To test something like this, I have to post a test reply in a thread using -- again for test purposes only -- a second login account equal in privileges to that of an ordinary Registered user.)

Two questions:

1) As an ordinary Registered user, after making a post to a thread that I had set to be moderated (while logged in as the site admin), I saw a notification that the thread to which I had replied was being moderated. This notification screen, however, went away a little bit too quickly, so that I didn't have time to read the full notice about the thread being moderated. Is there any way to increase the amount of time a user sees that notification screen?

2) It appears that administrators and moderators can see that a thread is being moderated, because of a little icon that shows up to the right of the thread title. I see this when logged in as site admin. I don't see this when I'm logged on as an ordinary Registered user, however. How do ordinary Registered users know a thread is being moderated? (Maybe there's already a mechanism for this built into vBulletin. I will admit to being somewhat unfamiliar with moderation to begin with.)

Thanks in advance for your help.

I am a little confused about the recommended install process. Are the two zips identical, and are we supposed to install the product AND apply the manual changes?
