Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Template Edits Additional Files Re-usable Code  

My time is very limited these days, with my full time job. I have marked this mod as re-usable code, if any other coder wishes to continue work on it. I may still try to support this mod as time permits.

What is this!?
This modification will allow you & your members (based on usergroup permissions) to mark a thread as "Solved". It will add the prefix "[SOLVED]" to the thread title, and if set in the admincp - it will also close the thread.

Current Version
2.0.1.

Features flagged for future version(s):
  • Thread starter can choose to solve a thread, and input the username of who solved it - that user would receive rep. points. (admin-configurable amount of rep. points)
  • Given the above - include count of threads a user has solved in postbit & profile
  • Option to move the thread to a specific forum when a thread is "Solved"
  • Possibly figure out a way to automate everything on install - so there are no template edits.
And anything else that is suggested

Will this work on x.x.x ??
Unless otherwise stated, this will work on all 4.0.x versions. This will not work on 3.x.

Sounds cool. How do I install?
  1. Extract the zip, you should have the following directories/files:


    Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
    Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

  2. Upload: (in the below instructions 'yourforum' would be where you have vBulletin installed)
    • /upload/solved.php to /yourforum/solved.php
    • /upload/images/buttons/marksolved.gif to /yourforum/images/buttons/marksolved.gif (upload to each style folder, if you have more than one style)
    • /upload/includes/xml/bitfield_solvedthread.xml to /yourforum/includes/xml/bitfield_solvedthread.xml
  3. Import the product, product-solvedthreads.xml by going to: AdminCP -> Plugins & Products -> Manage Products -> [Add/Import Product]
  4. Make the following template edits to all of your installed styles:

    SHOWTHREAD

    Find:

    Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
    Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

    Add after:

    Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
    Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

  5. Set options in AdminCP > Settings > Options > Solved Threads
  6. Edit Solved Threads Permissions > Can Mark Threads as Solved for each usergroup.
  7. To setup the forums it can be used in, follow the instructions in this post.

Upgrade
  1. Re-import the product, product-solvedthreads.xml, with "Allow Overwrite" set to yes
  2. Upload the files/folders in the "upload" folder, allowing it to overwrite the old files.

That's it! Enjoy!

Changelog
2.0.1 - July 30, 2010
- Changes to solved.php, to check for errors while saving thread, changed how threadinfo is pulled.
- Changes to bitfield_solvedthread.xml, removed the "install" attribute, doesn't seem to work anyway.
- Changes to product-solvedthread.xml, install process. Gave the install a small delay between rebuilding prefix datastore (after adding prefixset), and creating prefix.
- Changes to product-solvedthread.xml, plugin. Removed check for can_use_prefix function, as vB 3.8 + includes it, and this mod is for 4.0

2.0.0 - February 3, 2010
- Updated to vBulletin 4

1.1.2 - January 15, 2010
- Updated the product file, permissions, and phrases. This should, hopefully, resolve the blank page problems, along with the permission not showing up for usergroups.

1.1.1 - July 21, 2009
- Updated the product plugins and phrases, this should solve the blank page problem, and the problem of the option not showing in Admincp for ug permissions.

1.1.0 - April 14, 2009
- Small updates to xml file, no version # change. If it works for you, no need to do anything.
- If you have problems uninstalling, please see this post.

1.1.0 - April 12, 2009
- Updated for 3.7 & 3.8
- Now uses the built-in Thread Prefix system
- Instead of 'excluding' forums, since using the Thread Prefix system, you can choose which forums this will be shown in.

1.0.1 - July 12, 2007
- Added the ability to unsolve a thread.
- Added the ability to exclude this in certain forums
- Added the ability to change the prefix in that acp

1.0.0 - June 8, 2007

Works on 4.1.11.

Venom2124, Do I just need to change the references in the XML file or all the files that are in the download. Also what about the edit? Do I just add it again but use the new name?

Any help would be much appreciated.

You would have to go through all the products and files and change anything that is solved, unsolved, solve, or unsolve to a new phrase. So depending on what you would like to do would depend on the coding changes.

Thanks for that.

Last night I went through all the files and changed all references to my new phrase, in my case it is Scrapped and Unscrapped.
I edited the SHOWTHREAD file and added a second instance of the edit with my changes in it.
Works perfectly on my test board.

Will the topic starter be able to mark the thread as solved (but not other persons threads)?

I was wondering we can add a "NEW BUTTON" beside edit Post or Reply

because the mark thread as solved is kinda hidden and adds additional steps.

Any ideas?

Thanks but sadly I couldnt find your post on it on this thread. I just saw that u showed pics and said "Its not yet perfect, but if you would like to have the code let me know."

Im sure alot would love to have your code


Btw Is it possible with this mod that the usergroup can make it "solve" and set it back to "unsolved" as often as they want?

Or is it only possible if they made that thread themselves?

Hey guys,

I need this or something similar in one of my forum sites to be used only in a site support sub-forum. I have not read every single post in this thread so excuse me if this has been covered.

I understand it uses usergroup permissions. This is fine and I suppose it would not be hard to add a conditional for forums as well. Has anyone done this? I do not want moderators and admins to have the option to mark solved all over the site.

I would also like to know if anyone has this working successfully on 4.2 with a custom theme. if so did you have to customize? Does this use existing css or it's own?
If you could supply a link so I can test that would be awesome.

Thanks,
Rich
