Not Supported Uses Plugins  

What this plugin does:

vBulletin does not (no longer) allow a user to report their own posts. This plugin allows you to enable (or disable by deactivation) reporting own posts.

On some forums there are quite a few threads started and after a set period members want to report those threads to be moved by moderators. without it, members need to PM moderators and provide a link to the post and/or thread, which is a lot of make-work, especially when some members don't know how to provide links, so they'll PM something like "Go to that sub-forum, look in page 7, second thread from the top"!

This can alternatively be done by editing two templates (per template set), postbit and legacy psotbit. But you will need to make those edits to disable/enable this behavious. A plugin is much cleaner, and easier.

Installation: Upload the plugin xml file through your admincp plugin manager.


Please click Install if you have installed this mod.

Thanks. I expected the first reply to this thread to be "Who would want this?"

Who would want this ?

Seriously, I'm curious why anyone would report their own post(s) ?

Like if you post it in the wrong forum.

Or if had second thoughts about your post and want it to be removed and you dont have perms to delete your own posts.

vb.org has a good example as well. Say you post a beta hack, and after testing, you want to notify mods that it's no longer in beta, and needs to be moved soemwhere else. To be able to report it, saves you the time to decide which mod to PM, and cut and paste the link, etc, and a lot less clicks.

It would it be easier if you guys didn't disable it in the first place, it was working fine before 3.0.7

Zachery, while we have your attention could I get you to check this for me (or forward it to the WYSIWYG guru in dev):

http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=83034

It's holding up the spell checkers release, and I'm stomped.

Not a js guru, Scott or Kier would have to respond to that, and my poking won't help that much :\

These guys are "unpokable" at the moment I take it. I'll send a PM and see what happens.
