Prevent Bump on Forum Threads Before X Time
By: Idan B.

This modification was coded to answer request given by vithorius @
As with other modifications i've take upon coding from requests section, this sounded like useful modification to entire community, so i believe the time i've spent to code it was worth it.

1. Description & Usage:
This hack will allow any forum admin to configure certain forum in a way that will prevent any users to bump his thread before certain time has passed from the time thread has been created. Any attempt by user to reply before time has passed will show user with error message & showing him the remaining time he has to wait before allowed to reply.

Please click Mark as Installed.
Installation is pretty easy - just download & install:
  • Goto: AdminCP->Plugin System->Manage Products : Choose "Add/Import Product" and import this product xml (product-prevent_bump.xml)
3. Upgrade From Older Version:
1. Uninstall previous version
2. Download new version xml & install as instructed in previous section.

4. Configuration:
Once installed, the "Forum Manger" under admincp will have extra section for each forum:
Section name: "Prevent Threads Bump"
  • Enabled ? - Yes/No
  • Minimum time before thread bump (#d #h #m #s) - Text
5. Known Bugs:
- None at the moment - please report any found !

6. TO-DO's LIST (Next Versions):
- 2nd attempt to reply again after already replied will require to meet with x time rule again - fixed in v1.0.1.
- Bypass to certain usergroups

7. Extra Notes:

oke, sorry i thought it was this mod. after searching a bit more and googled for the right words i vind the solution.


i deinstalled this mod because users who sold there good thay couldn't add a message within three days that is has been sold. they have to ask an administrator to do this.


you could make it so that when the owner gets an popup screen where he can select some options, like sold, reserverd or somthing else.
and this is added to the post.

becaus of the lack of this it is inusable for us.

I really need this hack, it's something I've been looking for almost 3+ years now. Only a slight problem for us though if maybe you could add this to the functionality. We only allow 1 post for the user in 24 hours, regardless if someone responds to it or not. If we could limit it to just 1 post every 24 hours for the thread that would be wonderful. Right now it's catching just a few, but we have a very very active forum so most of our threads get responded to. Which means that someone is almost guaranteed to get a response from someone else and it makes this hack not as effective as it could be for our forums.

Thank you!

How do I change the message that the poster will see in the pop up? Can I customize it to say exactly what I want?
