Multiple account login detector (AE Detector)

vB Version: 3.6.0 Rating: (87 votes - 4.70 average) Installs: 1909

Mod of the Month winner!
Top 10 most installed mods for vB3.6!

Same plug-in found here:

http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=107566

There are no differences as this plug-in works with both 3.5 and 3.6 versions of vBulletin.


If you are like me and migrated from .threads, a common modification was an "AE detector", a simple mod that saved a cookie of a history of ids logged into on your site. If someone logged into more than one account, you got a PM letting you know that your site was being accessed from multiple accounts.

Over the years this was very helpful in identifying users who were posting under multiple accounts (alter-egos!) and users who would return after being banned.

You might be wondering why I don't use the vbcookie call - well, thats because on logout all vB cookies are cleared, so we need to store a cookie that is not effected by the login/logout process.

New Installation
1. Add New Product with attached XML
2. Go to vBulletin Options -> AE Multiple Login Detection Settings and set your specific settings.

Time to install: Easy - 2 minutes.

Upgrade
If you installed this as a Plug-in manually, you can delete that plugin and install this Product, just make sure to go into the Options and set them accordingly.

I hope you find this useful and will click INSTALL if you use it; should it prove useful to enough people I can look at making this installation more automated without the need for edits and an Admin Options page.

To upgrade you will want to reimport this XML file and edit your options accordingly.

1.0.3
-----
. Added a check to ensure that users weren't deleted when reporting violations
. added htmlspecialchars_uni call to username

Note: I am unable to get the call to construct_phrase with $vbphrase['multiplelogin_alert'] to work reliably, as such the $message variable is still set manually inside the plug-in and not via the phrase. If anyone has an idea of why this might not always work, I'm all ears.

1.0.2
-----
. Updated to include exclusion groups, users
. Changed so PM is sent by ae sender id

1.0.1
-----
. Released as a Product (thank you PHPGeek2k3 for your help)
. Added option to post to a forum versus send a PM (or both)
. All settings moved into Admin Option

1.0.0
-----
Initial release.

How many times can the same question be asked? Don't you guys believe in reading before posting?

I've updated one of my boards to 3.7. It works fine there. My other, still on 3.6.8, it doesn't work, presumably because some other mod is interfering with it(?).

So the answer is, yes, it can work with 3.7. But it may not, and there's no real easy way to test it.

Both hacks work on vb 3.7.0 Gold, just be sure to re-install from scratch.

Thank you. I suppose there's nothing to do now but try it and hope there are no problems.

I think the PM function is the problem with 3.71, I installed it and it is starting thread etc but is not sending Pm notification.

Edit: No that just came through too. Working fine now.

not working on mine. 3.7 I just want to ask how do you guys check it works?

What I did was register two accounts and nothing happened... are there any template changes required?

I figured out my problem... but I kinda sorta don't know how to fix it. Long story short impex didn't keep everyone's IDs the same. For example my userid before was 4 now it's 5... the AE detector wouldn't like that.

How do I change the AE detector so it just makes a whole new cookie, possibly with a different name...?
