DragonByte Technologies are proud to present Staff Only Hidden Posts v1: Staff Only Hidden Posts allows Administrators, Super Moderators, Forum Moderators, and any additional usergroups that has moderation privileges, to post/view hidden posts.


Why Staff Only Hidden Posts?

It is a neat tool for staff to post in a thread but not allow everyone to see what they posted. These posts are only viewable by the aforementioned usergroups. This Mod uses the vBulletin moderation feature to achieve this. The post however will not show up in the Moderation Queue in the Admincp or Modcp. It is fully phrased so you can edit it to your languages.

*Un-Installed*

Will wait for the search to be fixed, as this modification isn't really workable until that time.

@DragonByte
Don't you think that instead of flooding the org with new Modifications, you should get the ones you already have working right out of the box and tested so they do work first.

Their are multiple coders at DragonByte Tech, those coders released some mods today, I am the coder for this mod and I did not release anything. I am working on a fix for this but it is proving to be stubborn. I will continue to search for a viable solution to the issue.

It is a known issue. I am looking for a work around to make it work correctly.

Still a month after this mod was put out for us, there is still no fix.

I have tried a multitude of different ways and the only way I can get the posts to show correctly so far is to leave them in the moderation queue. Which is what I don't want, otherwise they show up in the acp as Posts to Moderate.

I am trying different options constantly, I have not started development on any other mods yet while I try and get this sorted. This has not been forgotten, I try various options every day, and will let you know here when I have come up with a viable solution.

Well after many days of testing different configurations, I finally managed to get it to show the hidden posts correctly, when you click on the link in the header.

In addition when you do click on the link you will be able to see all the hidden posts, not just the un-read ones.

Sorry it took so long, but it was a rather interesting thing to track down, basically I re wrote the entire thing.

On a side note, it will not show hidden posts that were made before this fix, as they were removed from the table in the database.
