Info:
User can check if the same/similar thread already exist when posting new one. Button is shown right after the thread title field in newthread form. When button is clicked then javascript code opens popup window with search results. Entered thread title is used as search query. Additionaly you can choose to search thread titles only or entire posts, to show results as threads or posts, to search current forum only or all. You can also exclude forums in ACP, set default pop-up window dimensions,...

All search permissions (by usergroups, forums) will be applied here too.


Installation:
1. Import XML file (as product): AdminCP > Plugin System > Manage Products > [Add/Import Product]

2. OPTIONAL (for very customized styles - if button not shown):
In newthread template find: <td><input type="text" class="bginput" name="subject" value="$subject" size="40" maxlength="85" tabindex="1" /></td>
Below it add: $cybcheckifposted

It is a useful mod, I get a lot of duplicate threads when there is some hot news, or a new release in my forum.

I second the idea of using ajax to automatically check, because I know a lot of users will be too lazy to click the button. There was a 3.6 version, but that had a few issues. Is it possible Cyb?

I've also seen AJAX ones. You type the title and it will begin to search for similar ones, then show the results under the title box. That would make this mod even better!

Would be nice for smaller forums I am sure. I would worry about resource usage if it did it all the time, every time on a big board.

Agreed. I'd like it to check similar threads on submit then either post the new thread or return with a list of similar threads above the subject and the body of the new thread ready for a c&p.

No! This was on a big board - they don't seem to have any problems.
