Installation Instructions
:
  1. Backup your forum database. You are installing this modification at your own risk - I will not be held responsible for any damages or losses to your computer/web server/site data/vBulletin installation that occur from trying to install/uninstall this hack.
  2. Extract the files from the .zip archive
  3. Open the upload directory
  4. If you have changed the directory names of the Mod CP or the Admin CP from the defaults you will need to apply the same changes here.
  5. Upload the contents of the 'upload' directory to the forum directory on your web server
  6. When the uploads are complete go into the Admin CP and expand the 'Plugins and Products' menu on the left-hand side.
  7. Click the 'Manage Products' link in the menu you just expanded.
  8. Click the '[Add/Import Product]' link at the bottom of the page.
  9. In the 'OR import the XML file from your server' text box change 'product.xml' to 'product-pprm.xml'
  10. Click 'Import'
  11. Click OK on the prompt
  12. Make sure in the vBulletin Options menu under 'User Infractions & Post Reporting Options' that Post Reporting Email is not set to 'no e-mail'. Due to the core hook location of this hack it will not work if e-mailing is not enabled in the vBulletin options. However, this can be overridden on the PPRM configuration page.
  13. and you're all done You may wish to change the configuration of PPRM, this can be done from the Post Reports menu in the Admin CP navigation.
  14. Mark the mod as installed, this is so you can receive updates regarding the mod. I won't spam you or send you drunken e-mails lolol.

This hack is still in beta phase and I would really appreciate your feedback with any bugs/errors/design issues you encounter. Things to watch out for are compatibility issues with non-major browsers and the 'acknowledge permissions' setting not working as I've only done a very limited amount of testing on it.

The inspiration for this hack came from Distance's Advanced Post Report System for 3.6 which was an upgrade of a mod by some guy called pig, lol.

What does this do?

Acknowledge moderator permissions when displaying reports?
Recommended for forums with a large flow of reports

Tnx

Well, it means that when a mod goes to open/closed reports in the CP it will only show the reported posts in the forums they can moderate. It also checks moderator permissions with pictures, picture comments and visitor messages.

These are the permissions checked:

Such a quality hack Pedro, I really like the looks of it. This hack just needs to be installed on my Forums!

Question which I hope you could answer: I need to use it near the end of the month. Could you give me an ETA on when you think the beta phase is over? I am running a Forum with 80,000+ members so I try to avoid installed beta hacks since they are called beta for a reason hehe. In a week or so, this hack could be very important for my site.

Thank you in advance mate and keep up the good work!

Bozza

the reason the xml file needs to be imported is to add the templates and plug-ins which do not have their own files but are stored in vBulletin's database it also makes the product exist in the products menu. It doesn't matter whether you browse to the xml file on your pc, upload it and import it or whether you upload all the files in the /upload/ directory and then import it from your server - it just matters that you import it.

Glad you like the look of it There's 33 installs and 43 downloads of v0.92 which has been out 5 days without any bug reports. I want to introduce the option to ignore reports that are Under Investigation when making the notification count so will probably do that and if there aren't any bug reports for this current version will go gold (v1.00), say, 7 days from now. That would give it a couple of weeks out in the wild which seems long enough for a mod of this size. It's only really in beta cos it's new and there might be error's I've overlooked. There isn't any crazy experimental code in there or anything so it should stable.

Pedro - if you can introduce a feature to stop members from abusing the reporting system (ban a user from accessing report.php) you would make my Mods VERY happy...

I currently hard code an amend to report.php as...

if (!$vbulletin->userinfo['userid'] OR
$vbulletin->userinfo['userid'] == XX
)
{
print_no_permission();
}
but maybe there's a way of integrating into your excellent mod ?

Yep Jambo, I'll have a look at the hook locations and see if I can sort something out in time for the gold release

I do not know if this bug has been fixed already, but I just noticed it... sorry if someone else has already mentioned...

After the post has been reported, and a moderator updated its status in the ModCP, the user can view the report status by going quick links -> your post reports ... which is good.

However, the post link leads to a page not found. I am referring to the word "post" right above the status updates. If you are confused, I have inserted this screenshot.

Currently, it links to this: http://www.supportingteens.net/showt...=1276#post1276

Lists the post number twice, and leads to an error page!

Thanks again!!

Is there any way to implement a pruning option? It'd be nice to remove old post reports without having to go into the database table to remove them... that's a lot of work!

I know, it would be a lot of work to create a pruning tool, but I just thought I'd ask! Otherwise, my 'Closed Reports' window fills up REALLY fast, and becomes clogged...
