DESCRIPTION

This hack gives your board staff a few advanced post editing options that are available in New Thread, New Post and Edit Post interfaces. Since this is a port of Xenon's Adv. Editing Options for Mods and Admins Hack, credits for the original idea (but not for the port cause it has a lot new features that were not present in the original ) belong to him.

Note that this hack may interfere with other hacks that make use of posting functions. If such problems appear, place the following code in the very beginning of the problematic script:

------------------------------------------------
define('BYPASS_AEO', true);
------------------------------------------------

This should eliminate whatever problem appears. If it does not, please feel free to mention it.

STATISTICS

File Uploads: 1
Products to Install: 1


FEATURES

Basics:
  • Post Editing Hierarchy (available to mods, s-mods, admins and s-admins):
    Superadministrators: Can restrict editing to moderators (and above), supermoderators (and above), admins (and above), or superadmins only.
    Administrators: Can restrict editing to moderators (and above), supermoderators (and above) or admins (and above).
    Supermoderators: Can restrict editing to moderators (and above) or supermoderators (and above).
    Moderators: Can restrict editing to moderators (and above).

  • Post Author (available to administrators only):
    Administrator can specify a custom author of any post. Guests (non-existing users) can also be specified.

  • Post Date/Time (available to administrators only):
    Administrator can specify a custom date and time for any post.

  • Post IP (available to administrators only):
    Administrator can specify a custom ip address for any post.

Advanced:
  • A system-wide switch that defines the minimal editlevel required to use the hack.
    It can be found in vBulletin Options -> Advanced Editing Options for Mods and Admins.
  • A per-user editlevel override, available via admincp user options.
  • Color-coded listing of users to whom a custom editlevel has been applied.

Note:
To make the subject of the override clear for you, here is an example. If you turn you take a regular registered user and set the override to "Administrator" in that user's profile, then that user will be able to use hack options that would otherwise be available only to administrators.

VERSION HISTORY

2.2.0
The hack has been ported to vBulletin 4.0.x.

2.1.0
[+] The hack is now compatible with vBulletin 3.5.x - 3.8.x.
[+] Eliminated all template edits. The difference in template edits between different vBulletin versions is handled automatically.
[+] Added support for attachments for posts with custom user setting. These attachments are now saved, and their ownership is set to whatever custom user is specified.
[+] When a post is submitted with a custom user setting, that user's activity dates are updated if they are older than the post's date. The dates of the user's activities are never set to the future. If a new post is made with a date in the future, the user's activity dates are set to present time.
[+] When a post is submitted with a custom dateline, last post information in forum and thread is now rebuilt properly.
[+] If a post is submitted with a custom dateline, the thread's firstpostid and creation date are now set to match whatever posts is now the first one in the thread.
[+] In the event that you have installed "vS-Hide Hack Resurrection," and you are changing the ownership of a post that has been thanked, the ownership of thanks is updated automatically, and so are the users' thanked counts.
[+] Removed a lot of redundant code, so the hack should now work faster than it did before.

2.0.2
[+] The hack is now officially compatible with vBulletin 3.6.
[+] Added a workaround for hacks that use new post functions. See description for details.
[+] Unlike before, adv_editform form elements now use vbulletin styles.

2.0.1
[F] Removed extra queries from showthread and showpost.
[F] "adv_editform" is now cached.

2.0.0
[+] A "superadministrator" editlevel.
[+] A system-wide switch that defines the minimal usergroup required to use the hack.
[+] A user-level override of system permissions that defines the editlevel associated with any particular user.
[+] A listing of users for whom an override was defined (with color key). Located under "Users" in the control panel navigation menu.

1.0.2
[+] When you make a post, you have a new checkbox available. That checkbox is off by default, and it allows you to choose whether to use the custom dateline in your post.

1.0.1
[F] Lastposters were not updated on newthread and newreply when replied by admin.

1.0.0
First Release

The installation manual is contained within the attached file.

Cool Mod.

Is there a way to see a list of posts they have been changed using this mod?

I would like to keep an eye on what posts moderators are changing. Specifically the author (previous > current) etc.

In addition, is there a way to restrict the author selection to a pre-defined list? For example, I only want moderators changing particular posts to the 'Moderator' user. I don't want them all to have the ability to change the author to absolutely anyone on the forum.

Is it just me or does this not show when you're on newreply.php and posts without a username?

Hi,
I fixed the problem this way:
In plugins
A.E.O. - Process Settings ('editpost') - (2/2) and
A.E.O. - Process Settings ('newpost') - (2/2)

after the line
//update counters

you have to add
require_once(DIR . '/includes/functions_databuild.php');

Greetings
fabs

Hello
Is it possible to assign this hack for group ID ??

I got some difficult situation:
1) /admincp/options.php?do=options&dogroup=psionic_advedit set to S-Admin.
2) user1 - group Administrator (ID6). In that group settings Can Moderate All Forums (is Super Moderator) YES, Can Moderate All Forums (is Super Moderator) YES.
3) user2 - group Super Moderator (ID5). In that group settings Can Moderate All Forums (is Super Moderator) YES, Can Moderate All Forums (is Super Moderator) YES.
I have to give to user2 this permissions, so he can use normal search in /admincp/user.php?do=modify (as you know in /modcp/user.php?do=find you can search only by Name). Anyway, user2 is Super Moderator, but he can use this hack when editing posts.

So, I don't actually understand why Super Moderator has an access to hack, which is set for Administrator (S-Admin) only..
Ans as for me the best way is to assign hack for groupID, not for Hierarchy.

Does it now work in 4.2.x? Is there a workaround?
Or is there another similar addon that is able to change the date / time of posts?

Thank you!
