vB Version: 4.1.x Rating: (5 votes - 4.80 average) Installs: 19
Released: 05 Apr 2012 Last Update: 06 Apr 2012 Downloads: 95
Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Additional Files Translations  

About DEM:
Default Editor Messages (what a name) allows forum specific messages to populate the editor when users create newthreads. This, originally custom modification, has been converted into a proper vB product for vB.org users. DEM uses instances and messages in combination to allow for very specific message display and order.

Uses:
Have you or your moderators ever had to clean up messes in your community because your users simply ignore or forget the rules? Or maybe you have a specific forum where you want all new posts to follow a template and you find that no matter how much you ask it still isn't followed correctly?

Then this mod is for you! When a user makes a new thread they're most likely not going to go around reading all the rules before they do so (we can still hope, can't we?) but if a chunk of text appears right where they're typing they're bound to stop their fingers and open their eyes!

Features:
  • Fully phrased allowing for translations and multiple languages.
  • Instances! Allows for simple configuration amongst multiple forums with the same message(s).
  • Robust! If you delete a message any instances that used it will default to no bound message. Prevents errors without hindering usage.
  • An "override" setting allows for your message to populate the editor even if other text already exists in there.
  • Auto-delete / replace message(s) on post creation or, with javascript, in the editor itself with your own custom content.
  • Extensive message customization. Specify additional customizable content before and / or after message(s).
-----

Installation requires FTP access for the ACP options and navigation. Upload all files first then import the product.

Support:
Support will not be provided for vBulletin 4 Alpha, Beta or RC versions.
Low priority will be given to posters who do not have this marked as installed
In some cases, support can only be provided if I have an admin login and ftp access.

Changelog:
  • v1.0.0
    • Initial Release
  • v1.1.0
    • Feature: Auto-delete messages on post creation. Both text before and after the message(s) will remain.
    • Feature: Setting and phrase to replace deleted messages with specific text. BBCode is allowed and, if your settings allow it, HTML is allowed.
    • Feature: Phrase-able text on message quote tag. Let's your users know what exactly this message is.
    • Feature: Settings link added in the ACP navigation tab for easy access.
    • Change: Submit button text changed from edit to save when editing an instance or message.
  • v1.2.0
    • Feature: Auto-delete messages using javascript (immediately on editor focus).
    • Feature: Phrase-able text before and after notices without disrupting auto-delete / replace.
    • Feature: Expanded options for auto-delete / replace. Allows for never, always, only with javascript, only with post submission.
Notes:
See Mr. Running's post for screenshots on how to remove message wrap-arounds.

Hi Pandemikk,
Note on the Edit Instance there is a Edit and Reset button

If I may suggest changing Edit to Save

Excellent mod.

Installed and testing it out.

Cheers

Edit: it's on the Manage Message --> Edit Message screen too

Please change Edit button to Save

Ah yes. Sometimes copy and pasting leaves its traces.

Not sure what you mean by this. You mean the message is showing not in the editor but in the title? That makes no sense. What version of vB are you using and do you have any other products / plugins enabled that may be interfering with this?

Looks like the install file didn't create the tables. Verify you have create access to your database then uninstall and reinstall the product. If that fails, you can run the query directly yourself. Sadly, I am unable to do anything about this because I cannot control your database permissions.

v1.1.0 Released! Addresses all requests made so far. Included is the surprisingly popular auto-deleted message setting. I've decided to take it a step further and also given the ability to replace the message with your own custom text!

Thanks for all those who've rated and installed.

Yes, it was in the title...It was kind of neat...do people still say neat. LOL

I am on 4.1.11 p1
I thought it might have been dbtech Post Template

I think it's sorted I have cleared caches and it appears my host may have been updating stuff on their end.
