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!

Is this MOD still being improved? I would still love to see the features I suggested in the 3.x version... support for more than one prefix (Sold, Traded, Found) for classifieds forums, but with the same functionality that allows the thread poster to mark it in the same manner this MOD already does.

Hi SecondV,

Just upgraded and works perfect.
I've made some customization, because i want the solved button more visible to my users.
( I provided you once ago the instruction for a previous version)

Its like this:
Solved button:
1.JPG

Unsolved button:
2.JPG

So if you see the unsolved button is slighty more to the right, due to the fact that in iE7, the 2 buttons are overlapped when normal added (in IE7 now they are both ok)

Its not yet perfect, but if you would like to have the code let me know.

Best regards,
Karel

Is there a way to have this mod without manual template editing? I have so much theme and going over each of them everytime is not fun.

Not working after upgrade to VB 4.0.6

I have replaced SHOWTHREAD to 4.0.5 version, and it works again

I afraid to do that. I will wait for update one. It should be compatible for later vBulletin versions.

This has been tested several times on the latest vB 4 version, and it's worked every time. The code for SHOWTHREAD for this mod has not changed.

great mod.

and I agree ....it would be nice to see the option to change SOLVED to SOLD or whatever else.
This way this mod would be even more popular.

great work SecondV

Great mod.

Is there a way to create a page that display the last 25 SOLVED threads for instance?
