--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This modification has been withdrawn.
vBulletin 4.0.x and 4.1.x are no longer supported.

The feature is already built into the core vBulletin 4.2.x code.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


This is a current version of the popular modification, originally developed for the early 3.x series by Xenon.

Basically, if member posts in a thread where they were the previous last poster, then if the conditions are met, their new post will be auto-merged into the previous post instead of creating a new "double" post.

A number of options are provided ;

Time Limit - if more than xxx minutes have passed since the last post, no merge is done.

Timestamp Spacer - if enabled, a timestamped spacer is added between the old post text and the new post text.
Other spacer choices provided are no spacer, a default, or a custom spacer.

Spacer Colour - allows you to set the colour of the spacer between merged posts (if one is enabled).

Post Timestamp Update - if enabled the newly merged post will have its post time updated to the new time, otherwise it retains the time of the original post.

Usergroup exceptions - Allows you to exempt certain usergroups from the doublepost merges.

Forum exceptions - Allows you to exempt certain forums form the doublepost merges.

IP Address Check - Specifies if the poster IP should be checked, if enabled, the post will only be merged if the user and ip address are the same.

All settings are located in vBulletin Options > Doublepost Prevention.

To install just unzip the XML and import into vB using the ACP Product Manager.

Paul, I would like to use this mainly to prevent the double post bug, where you make a post in the quick reply and it hangs for a second and then posts that same post twice. It's so bad since the upgrade that I've had to disable quick reply. Can this be used that way or is it strictly based on merging?

Not sure what bug you are referring too, but this merges only, it will never stop a post being made.

I got a strange thing. If I write the new post in the quick reply box and hit the button to send it, I always get the message that the message is too short. My settings does not allow messages under 10 chars but the tries I'm doing are always more that that. If I don't use the quick reply box everything work fine.

I don't know if it's related but I've installed alto the MARCO1 advanced quick reply.

why after i post a picture [attachment] it become a new post?
but if i post a normal post [without attachment] it merged to the post above [if the post doesn't have any attachment]?

this is a bug? or it's working like this?

Posts are not merged if they have attachments, thats by design.

Is there a way to have no time limit? Meaning a post will always count as a double post?
