[Ajax] Check for similar thread before posting a new one

vB Version: 3.6.7 Rating: (48 votes - 4.75 average) Installs: 515
Released: 08 Jul 2007 Last Update: 10 Jul 2007 Downloads: 2637
Not Supported Uses Plugins Template Edits Additional Files  

You love the 'similar threads' function and you are sick of duplicate threads just because your users don't use the search function?

Why not just combine them?

This Add-on will grab the thread title the user typed in and it will load a small box (using Ajax magic ) with 5 similar threads just like the 'similar threads' function that you can normally find under an already posted thread.

The box also tells the user to search through the similar threads first BEFORE starting a new one.


Features:
- no edits whatsoever needed, just import the product file, enable the Add-on and it works (well, it should )
- you can turn it off for certain forums or
- you can turn it off completely without leaving any code that messes your templates/files
- it can be translated
- don't like it anymore? Remove the product and you'll never see that Add-on again


Known issues:
- none


Things to consider:

It uses jQuery to get the information from ajax.php. jQuery is great and you can do many great things with it and unlike the vBulletin method it's quite easy to understand.
The jQuery file is compressed and only 20kb large.
To download the file, visit the homepage at http://jquery.com/
The link to download the file is on the right hand side.

Here's the version I use: http://code.google.com/p/jqueryjs/do....1.3.1.pack.js

Just download it and put it into the 'clientscript' folder without renaming the file.


Installation:
Download jQuery as described above.
Import the attached file using the Product Manager. Go to your vBulletin settings and search for 'Check for similar threads?'. Enable it.


Important:
It adds 2 new templates, it changes 1 template and it edits 2 files. I highly doubt that it will break you vBulletin but do a back-up and be on the safe side.



Version history:
1. initial release
2. current release
*** fixed some browser issues. The attached file is up to date.





How to fix the Opera problems in the first release:
The first release of this Add-on didn't work on Opera. To fix the problems, please follow these steps:
Open the template 'mrnasesimilarthreadcheck_header' and REPLACE the content with this code:

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

The attached file is up to date.


Support will only given to those who have clicked 'install'.

It works in 3.7 gold.

You just have to enable it in vBulletin Options > Message Posting and Editing Options > Check for similar threads? YES

So I have this working in the generic vBulletin skin, but it's not working in my forum's default skin (which is a older version of a 3rd party one I bought from Aqua-Soft.) What are the tempate edits and where are they intended so that I may try to edit them in myself, manually? Thanks for a great add-on...

Step1: Download this attachment and upload it from your admincp > Plugins & Products> Manage Products > [Add/Import Product] Page..

Step2: Go to vBulletin Options> Message Posting and Editing Options




Now Scroll it down and select the options at the bottom of that page..

This would be helpful, as this isn't working in my default (3rd party) skin. But it's working fine in the generic vBulletin skin, so I know it's installed properly.

If you could share the manual template edits, I could force it to work in our preferred forum skin. Please and thanks.
