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

2.1.0
[+] 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.

Valter says here that he cannot post it without permission.

However, given that this mod is marked as "unsupported", I see no reason why Psionic Vision would object to you supporting it on his behalf for us using vb4.

In addition, despite many requests for an update, Psionic Vision has obviously decided that he is not going to entertain them, as is evident from his absence in this thread.

Hence, I would move the proposal to have Valter do it for us; given that the request has already been made and Psionic Vision has not replied, we can assume that it is safe to do so unless Psionic Vision comes back in this thread to say that he is disallowing it.

Go Go Valter!

I've already asked for permissions, but there is no reply yet.

You can not assume that Psionic would allow his code to be re-released in this thread. It's his code. He has not selected "Re-usable Code" - have you tried PM or emailing him or contacting him via his site http://VisionScripts.com?

This is a very nice hack! The only issue I have ran into, is that I can't use tapatalk with it active. Tapatalk still works fine for all regular members, but the ability to set a custom author of each post seems to be the hangup with it for Admins. If any staff that can use this hack are seeing "Did not specify username for post" with Tapatalk, the ability to set a custom author is probably why. I know this is an issue with tapatalk, and not necessarily the hack, but just thought I would throw it out there.

I uninstalled this yesterday and after uninstall I had members start complaining about attachment failures. Any reason anyone know why uninstalling this would effect people attaching photos?

Also can you look at this please? Thanks.

The programmer wrote in the installation instructions:

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.


so if you have for example an issue with tapatalk place this line in the "mobiquo.php" sript under "define('IN_MOBIQUO', true);".

And that works fine for me!
