Change Posts Owner

Created by Marius Czyz aka Phalynx.

Tested on vBulletin 3.6, 3.7 and 3.8

What does this modification do?
It can change the owner and date of multiple threads and post. For this, it adds another option to your mod actions on forumdisplay, showthread and search results. After selecting some threads or posts, you can choose the new owner by name or by UserID. "By name" works with the AJAX namesuggestion, we all know it from writing a PM. After changing the name, it rebuilds thread/forum counters and post counter of old and new user. Attachments will also be assigned to new user.

Installtime: <1 minutes
Difficulty: very easy (1 product)

Demo is not available, due to missing permissions on my board.

Please click Mark as INSTALLED, otherwise I will not support you.

Features
- Can change owner and date of selected posts and threads (including database attachments - it will not move file attachments)
- Can change owner to unregistered user and back
- Can accept user id and username
- Username input is driven by AJAX
- Post count of involved users will be increased/decreased
- Thread and forum counters of involved threads and forums will be rebuild
- Supports inline moderation
- Makes use of $template_hooks, hooks and simple group permissions
- Every change will leave a notice in moderation log

Features for future releases
- Incrementally change time, f.e. first posts is 12:01:01, second one will get 12:01:02h, third one 12:01:03h....
- Moving file based attachments to the new user

Great - I have lots of mp3 threads where I had to upload the files due to PHP timeouts, and I would like to assign them to their' rightful owners!

One example, is that I use both the "admin" account (for some admincp functions) and also my personal account. Occassionally, I'm accidently logged in as "admin" and reply to a post or start a new thread, this mod would easily enable me to change it to my normal user acct.

I actually looked for this in the standard Vbulletin and was expecting to find it, seems like it is something that would come up fairly often. I'm happy to find this mod and give it a try.

Thanks,
Jason

My main account was deleted and the messages created under that account were changed to "Guest". Is there any way to do a mass search and replace on these messages?

No, this modification does not work with guest posts.
Instead, you will have to run a query to assign the posts to a user.

It does work on guest posts. I tried it. Problem - I have to do it all manually.

How would I do this with a query?

ok, when change the thread owner, the posts in the threads by the old owner change to the new owner, right?

or they don't change and only the thread changes?

thanks for the good work

ok, I got it

only the first post of the thread will be modified

I have another issue

when I search for all the posts of some user, I can't find the in the options the option of changing posts owner.. but when I search for his threads I can find that option

I've two IDs in my forum and I want to change all the threads and posts in my second ID to the first one.. but when tried doing that when search for all the posts by the user I couldn't find that option..

how can I make the option show in the options of the results of the all user's posts?

I hope you got what I mean ^-^

thanks

OK, I got that to work

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

in the "search_results" template

if there is any another way to do that please let me know

thanks



I only tested in localhost

Hi Marius, just wondering, is possible in the next version improve something for the 'reset or change' the IP? cause if i change the thread/post's owner he takes the IP of the older owner ...

What IP should be taken? Last known IP of the new owner or the last post IP of the new owner?
