Not Supported Uses Plugins Auto-Template Translations  

As of 24 Nov 2017 this modification has been withdrawn.

This is an updated version of the popular modification, previously released by Xenon. It is released with his kind permission.

Basically, if member posts in a thread where they were the previous last poster, then if the conditions are met, their new post will be auto-merged into the previous post instead of creating a new "double" post.

A number of options are provided ;

Time Limit - if more than xxx minutes have passed since the last post, no merge is done.

Timestamp Spacer - if enabled, a timestamped spacer is added between the old post text and the new post text.

Post Timestamp Update - if enabled the newly merged post will have its post time updated to the new time, otherwise it retains the time of the original post.

Spacer Colour - allows you to set the colour of the spacer between merged posts.

Usergroup exceptions - Allows you to exempt certain usergroups from the doublepost merges.

Forum exceptions - Allows you to exempt certain forums form the doublepost merges.

All settings are located in vBulletin Options > Doublepost Prevention.


To install just unzip the XML and import into vB using the ACP Product Manager.


History:

v3.8.001 : First Release for vB 3.8.
v3.8.002 : Phrased the post separater.
v3.8.003 : Added JS Template - removing need to edit quick reply javascript file.
v3.8.004 : Updated spacer options.
v3.8.005 : Updated timestamp spacer to fix issue with large merge times.

bug with vb3.8.7 when this is turned on, users are not able to see threads in forums where (can see other threads is set to NO) meaning in forums where they can see their own threads, the user gets a blank page when he tried to view his thread, i had to disable plugins one by one to find out which one causes it

I really only need this function for my for sale/classifieds forum; how difficult would it be to change the mod so that instead of a list of "excluded" forums you could define only certain "included" forums.

ie I have lots of forums and sub forums and only one of them needs this hack - well actually the entire site may ultimately benefit from it but the problem with people bumping for sale threads is not one that will be solved with 120min limit - I may need to set it to several days and for the main forums that will be possibly a bit long - instead I would like to set the limit very high and apply "anti-bumping" only to my forsale forum.

I ask this only if you can conceive a way of doing it easily! (manual editing would be fine from my POV)

Again, thanks for sharing your work and being so prompt with replies and support! I don't know how you do it - but I guess it has something to do with the Dr. Pepper; so I might try that some time

Will
Im looking for the same thing for the same reasons

Is the change implemented in the current code ?

Thanks for all the cool mods over the years ...

We have over a hundred forums - I dont see any text boxes in the VB admin interface that I can grab all 100 forum ids from ....

Maybe I missing something but the only place I see the forum id is in the link when I hover over the forum name

I was hoping there was a solution that didnt include phpmyadmin or a sql query

There isnt one, your question was to vague for me to realise thats what you were referring to.

You would need to run a simple query to get them.
