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

Note:
This modification was coded to answer request given by vithorius @ http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=212173
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.

2. Installation:
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:
The text used in this modification is fully configured via phrase manager in admincp.
- Error messages is made from 3 phrases:
reply_access_denied_wait_x_time_please

This looks like a nice mod indeed.

One question: when someone answers the TS his first post and the TS wants to reply is that allowed by this hack? or does he still have to wait before the time set runs out before replying?

Yes.
This mod only prevent some1 to bump his own thread if no reply has been made.
Should any reply be made, he can reply to his own thread without problem.

Can we configure this by usergroup? That way admins can bump whenever they like.

Not available in current version, but it's already written on the TO-DO's list.
This will be available on next revision update.

Also, can a user reply to his own thread if someone other than him has replied since the last time he did? Like he is answering a question instead of purposely bumping.

Yes. once thread has some repliy (or replies), thread starter has no longer any restrictions & can reply to his own thread. The mod idea was to prevent initial bump to thread no one has replied to.

Can you set what forums you want to use this in or is it just set for every forum?
