Who Is Replying?
Mod Version: 1.3, by MarkFL (Coder) MarkFL is offline
Developer Last Online: Nov 2019 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 4.x.x Rating: (5 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 24
Released: 02 May 2015 Last Update: 17 Mar 2017 Downloads: 116
Not Supported Uses Plugins Translations  

This simple add-on will show who is replying to a thread when you view the "Thread Information" block to see who is browsing a thread. On a site where help is given to users, this can potentially save time for those who might decide to post help, only to discover they have been beaten to the punch by someone else.

Updates:

Version 1.1:
  • Added setting to set which usergroups can view who is replying.

Version 1.2:
  • Minimized the number of queries involved.
  • Now shows who is editing a post as well.

Version 1.3:
  • Text added to active users now phrased.

Installation:

In AdminCP go to Plugins & Products ► Manage Products ► Add/Import Product.

Click on "Choose File" and browse to the product xml file that was packaged in the .zip file.

Click "Import"

You MUST set your settings to enable the mod.
Each setting has an explanation of its use.

This simple add-on is only meant to be a supplement to the "Thread Information" block and does not change the behavior of the block, that is, it does not make the block dynamic...it is still a static display.

True...but this was a request from one of my global moderators to see who, if anyone, is replying to a thread before he decides to take the time to post mathematics help, which obviously takes more time and effort than posting a reply on non-help forums. This allows our math helpers to quickly see that someone is already "on the job" on the spot without having to visit another page

@MarkFL, any idea how to make only viewable to certain usergroups? I would like this to be seen by staff members only.

I will add a setting to allow restricting to chosen usergroups.

I checked code, this part:


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

Can this be made into translatable phrases, my forum isn't in English. At the moment I hardcoded it in my language, but I would prefer it translatable.

Sorry about that oversight...

Also, there are two problems:

1) When I select usergroups and save, afterwards I don't see which usergroups I saved. It would be much better if we have some feedback for which usergroups mod is selected.

I see it works, but this kind of feedback is very useful in my opinion.

2) Mod only reacts if advanced editor is used, either for replying or editing post. Is it possible that mod reacts also to quick reply? I know this probably depends on vB, but on my forum people usually use quick reply for posting and editing.

EDIT: you're great man. Fast as a lightning.

EDIT2: Now that I installed v1.3, I see usergroups selected. Don't know what happend. Now it is fine.

This is what I see, which tells me which usergroups are selected:

Yes, this won't work to let you know who happens to be typing something into the quick editor...the user has to be located on the "newreply" or "editpost" scripts. When using the quick editor, a user's location does not reflect this.

Yes, for some reason I didn't see selected usergroups, but now I see them, after I updated to v1.3, as I mentioned in edit2 in my previous post (you were writing your post at the time).
