Hello everyone,

I recently hired a coder to do a complete rewrite of this hack because it's so darn useful, I asked the coder to completely rewrite it from the bottom up; I have explicit permission to share this freely with the community & it's my pleasure to give back.

To install the product upload the content of forum folder to your forum's root directory and import product-kirky_moderatorcheckpoint_117.xml file.

Please note that all manual template edits described in old installation for 3.x.x instruction document are no longer needed (and are not valid). Now all edits are done automatically using PHP.

Just upload and import, thats it!

For boards with a large moderating staff, it can be difficult to know who has checked what post and which threads are completely checked. The goal of the Moderator Checkpoint System is to ensure that moderators don't read over the same post(s) twice, leaving them to spend this time checking other posts/threads.

The core functionality of the Moderator Checkpoint System (MCS) is the ability (for those with appropriate permission) to mark threads/posts as having been "Checked" - indicating that no further action is required and the thread(s)/post(s) has/have been given the OK by a Staff Member. When a post is marked as checked, the checking user's User ID, Username, and a timestamp is stored in the database. This information then appears on the checked post(s), and the post will change markup (depending on your customizations through the included options) indicating the post has been checked. This process is, of course, completely invisible to the community at-large, and only those Users with adequate permission will be allowed to Check/Uncheck and view Checked posts/threads.

Because some Moderators may like to browse forums normally, a feature has been integrated that will allow each user to Enable/Disable viewing the forum in "Moderation Mode" at their leisure. Disabling Moderation Mode will return the display of posts/threads to their normal state.
---------------------------------------------------

This hack was made for use with vBulletin Default Style, however please feel free to modify it to work with your own style.

No support will be given for this hack, as I am not a coder; I'm an end user that is giving this hack to the community.

The coder that I paid for this hack is as noted.

I only installed this modification to see if it worked - I don't actively use it on a live site, so I have never seen what you are talking about.

Makes me think that possibly there was a hook change or some sort of change recently in the header template where it is no longer calling the notifications in the header.
Could you ever figure this out? I am trying to get this to work for 4.2.1 but no go!

I just enabled this modification again on my 4.2.1 site and it still works just fine. All I can think is that you aren't giving your moderators permission to check posts. If you have those permissions still set to No (like they are by default), then it isn't going to work and you aren't going to see the link.

I made sure those permissions are set. Still nothing in the header. Even on default style. I also got this error:

Fatal error: Class 'vBV_Tools' not found in /home/thebull/public_html/forums/includes/vbpkir/postbit_display_complete.php on line 38

And I made sure all the files were uploaded.

4.2.2 PL 1 - working as designed

A suggestion (if anyone is still working on this):
when active moderation mode is ON, we discovered many posts becoming checked, even that we hadnt read the entire post. That way - with the displayed checked status - wed missed a bunch of posts, which should have been moderated, cause nobody checked them again. We found out that (with our surfin behavior) wed missed nearly 15% of all posts. We were very surprised to see that number.

As a result, we all switched from active to manual moderation. But: if you suspend the active moderation mode you have to check every single post via a checkbox and additional you have to go to the mod-menue to click "mark checked posts as checked". That`s a bit unhandy in times of AJAX. It would be a great help, if this could be changed to a simple click on a little postbit_check_image, that then flags the post as "checked". Lot faster and more convienent.

But as said: its just a suggestion to improve the every day work with it. As it is it works flawless - and thats most important. This mod makes moderating a lot easier. Recommended for every Mod-Team.
