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
1.1.2 - You can find the 3.6.x version, here.

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 recieve rep. points. (admin-configurable amount of rep. points)
  • Given the above - include count of threads a user has solved in postbit & profile
  • 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 3.7 - 3.8 versions. This will not work on 4.0. If you are looking for a vB4 version, you can find it here.

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.

    Replace with:

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

    Find:

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

    Replace with:

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

  5. Set options in AdminCP > vBulletin 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
To 1.1.2 from 1.1.0/1.1.1
  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.

To 1.1.x from 1.0.0
  1. ATM, it is not advised to do an upgrade from previous versions to this one if you already have 1.0.0 installed. Fresh installs should be fine.


That's it! Enjoy!

Changelog
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.

- If you have problems uninstalling, please see this post.

- Updated for 3.7 & 3.8

After installing, go to: Thread Prefixes >> Thread Prefix Manager

You'll see: Solved Thread on the left, [Add Prefix] [Edit] [Delete] on the right. Choose Edit.

Then you'll see: Use Prefix Set in These Forums, select the forums you want this used in. (Hold the CTRL button to select more than one)

Yes, really, all you'd need to do is change the thread prefix, and a phrase or two.

Thanks for this.. installed....

One slight problem, altho all permissions and forums have been selected as per instructions .. when I go to solve a thread... i get following message.

you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:

1. Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?
2. If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation.

which as root admin obviously isnt true.

Do u know what is causing this?

The only way this can happen is if your permissions aren't set up right. It has four permission checks:

1.) Are you even allowed to view the forum?
2.) Are you allowed to see threads?
3.) Are you allowed to mark threads (un)solved?
4.) Is this your thread, or, are you a moderator who can moderate this forum?

I'm guessing for you, it's #3.

Please double check the usergroup permissions:

Usergroups >> Usergroup Manager >> Administrators (Edit) >> Go >> Can Mark Threads as Solved and Unsolved

They were all set correctly, I have double checked and re-imported it too and double checked again, and still get same message.

Ive tried in different topics as well as different forums, where this mod is enabled for (which is all of them)
