Similar Threads After The First Post , Brought You By : AioNets.com


Description :

This is the plugin and simple version of my previous product (HERE) which automatically moves the similar threads under the first post of every topic.

The differences between this plugin and the previous product Are :
- In the plugin version you will not be able to turn similar threads off for forums of your choice.
- The plugin version is much more optimized especially for large boards since it does not add additional queries to the database and it simply moves the similar threads under the first post.
- The installation of the plugin version is a little challenging than the product one.

Personally I would choose the plugin version over product one because of its performance.

Features :
- Automatically moves similar threads to the bottom of the first post.
- Ability to disable it globally
- Ability to customize it using CSS
- Works great with vBSEO and DB-SEO


Ease of Installation : Normal


Installation :

First ensure that the your vBulletin Similar Threads option is enabled.


1- Goto : AdminCP > Plugins and Products > Add New Plugin

2- Then set the options as below :

Product: vBulletin
Hook Location: showthread_complete
Title : AioNets Similar Threads
Execution Order : 5
Plugin PHP Code :

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

Plugin is Active : YES

Then Click On the Save Button.

3- Now you should edit the related templates to similar threads :
Goto : AdminCP > Styles & Templates > Style Manager

Then click on the " " button located at the right side of your active Style.
-or-
Click on the Drop down menu and select " Edit Templates " option.

Then search for "Show Thread Templates" and Double Click on it.

Then under Show Thread Templates you will see two templates related to Similar threads which we need to work on :

First one is -> "showthread_similarthreadbit" ... Please Double click on it and replace all of its content with :

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

The second template is : "showthread_similarthreads" ... Double click on it and replace all of its content with :

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

4- Now Search For "Postbit Templates" and Double Click on it :

NOTE : If you are using the Posit Style (which can be set in vBulletin Options > Style & Language Settings )

You should Double click on "postbit" template BUT if you are using the Legacy style you should double click on "postbit_legacy" ...

When you double clicked on your postbit template search for " $post[message] " and AFTER that insert below code :

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

And then save this template.

5- Styling :

- Select "Main CSS" from drop-down menu on the right side of your active style,
- Then Add below CSS code to "Additional CSS Definitions " :

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

And It's Done !


IMPORTANT NOTES
1- Always take backup of any template which you are working on
2- Please USE editor apps like Text Wrangler in Mac or NotePad++ in Windows for editing tasks and never edit templates directly. Personally I am using Espresso on my Mac and I am really satisfied.

One of the users (CoZmicShReddeR) mentioned that there are many forum owners who are using dark skins so the defult CSS which I posted in this modification may not fit their style so I decided to add two more CSS codes which would be great for dark skins.

1. Black Background :

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

2. Gray Background :

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


If you are using your own custom code please feel free to share it with other users.

And please fee free to ask any questions regarding this modification.
