vB Version: 3.5.4 Rating: (1 vote - 5.00 average) Installs: 13

Not Supported Uses Plugins  

Requested: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=100108

This little mod allows moderators of any forum to view all soft-deleted threads. (usually they can only view soft-deleted threads in forums they moderate).

This (should) work as long as the user is a moderator of ANY forum. Doesn't matter which forum, just as long as they're listed as a moderator of at least 1.

I've done as much (limited) testing as I can with just me and my test board, so let me know if it causes any problems

Important: Unfortunately, my leased vBulletin licence has now expired, and I won't be renewing it until September which means I will be unable to reply to this thread, or update this mod until then. I'm hopeful that the great vBulletin.org community will step in to answer any questions in my absence though See you all in early September!

Version 1.4: Fixed the pagenav bug
Version 1.3: Now supports search results + fixed a minor bug
Version 1.2: Added support for mods to view all soft-deleted posts as well as threads
Version 1.1: Fixed a bug that broke most of the links in forumdisplay.php

I updated to the new version. It still doesn't work for me. What should I look for?

Thanks again, Alan!

What parts not working mate?

When a moderator views the list of threads (forumdisplay.php), it'll show the soft-deleted threads, with the "View" link (but not the manage link), and the "Deleted by x, Reason: y" bit.

Moderators of the forum in question, supermods and admins should see the soft-deleted threadbit as normal.

In theory anyway It seems to work here. I created a test-mod and made them a standard moderator of Forum #1, I then went to Forum #2 and viewed the list of threads, and the soft-deleted threads showed up.

Hi Alan.

Sorry for my late response. But, I walk away from the internet on Tuesdays.

It just doesn't seem to work. I installed the product and made sure it was active. But, still mods cannot see the View link if the post is in a forum they don't moderate.

They can see the Delete Message. But, they can't see the View link.

I tested it on 3.5.0, so I'll upgrade to 3.5.1 tonight and see if it still works for me.

What happens if the mod tries to view a soft-deleted thread directly? (showthread.php?t=deleted-thread-id-here) Does it show the thread, or display a no permission message?

ok, upgraded to 3.5.1 and it still appears to be working for me.

When they try view the thread list, do they see the attached image, just without the "View" link?

Yes. They see the thread; just no View link.

I should have mentioned that I first installed it on a 3.5 board. And then on a 3.5.1 board.

I just realized, you're talking about Threads, while I'm talking about Posts.

/me goes back and deletes a thread.

Sorry to be a real pain, but if you get a sec, would you mind running the following query and telling me the number it returns (should be 1 or 2):


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

Thanks

Okay. Seems to work great for deleted threads.

Think we can get it to work for deleted posts? :bunny:
