vBPrivate Threads

This hack has been ported to vBulletin 3.5.4 from the vBulletin 3.0.0 version with permission granted by:
"You may modify, improve, upgrade, redistribute this hack, include it
in another hack or yours or translate it provided you do it free of
charge and you distribute it in at least, there is no
need to pm me asking for permission"
in Kentaurus's post for its original release, found here

This is my first major ported and released hack for vB.

With this Code Modification you can add private threads to your forums. A private thread is:
  • A thread that some users or usergroups can view. Others cannot.
  • A thread that some users or usergroups cannot view. All others can.

Using this Modification, any user in a forum that has Private Threads turned on may create a private thread. It is useful for holding private moderator conversations, or for making a thread private when some users would like to see the discussion closed and others want it to continue.

Future Plans:
  • Add Super Moderators and Moderators to override the standard permissions
  • Admin Options for allowed private thread types
  • Admin Options to define users with override-permissions privilages
  • Admin Options for those who can make private threads
  • Private Threads will NOT show in the lastpost column when user does not have access to thread
  • Creator can view thread by default

Hack History:

Version 1.0.6
  • Changed several file edits to plugins (Thank you waza)

Anyone know of anything like this for vB4?

I have quite a few threads in my current vB3.8.5 forum hidden from view with this mod that will suddenly become visible to all when I upgrade.

+1 for that, would love to have this on my VB4 forum. Any chance of an upgrade?
