Merge Double Post
Mod Version: 2.6, by Vitaly (Coder) Vitaly is offline
Developer Last Online: Jul 2014 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 3.8.x Rating: (2 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 70
Released: 22 Jan 2010 Last Update: Never Downloads: 431
Not Supported Uses Plugins Auto-Template Re-usable Code  

vb 4.x version here

This mod join consecutive posts of the same member to single one. That prevents nasty "bumps".

That's a complete rewrite of "Double Post Prevention Plus", that was announced here. Besides some new features, merge algorythm changed too. It doesn't creates dummy posts anymore. Code is reuseable at last.

Well, what this mod do:
  • The main - it merge consecuent posts of the same user to single one
  • Yes, it cares about attachments
  • Yes, it cares about AJAX posting
  • Yes, it cares about social groups, if you wish
  • It can add splitter with RELATIVE time. Users from different time zones will not be confused
  • Relative time can be translated via addon for languages with complex semantics (russian translation included).
It just works

How to install:
  1. Upload files from appropriate directory
  2. Import product XML
  3. If you use russian language - import translation addon from "./lang" dir. You should not do it for other languages.
  4. Go to ACP ant set necessary product options (see screenshot).
  5. Check ACP -> Message Posting and Editing Options -> Time to Wait Before Starting to Display 'Last Edited by...' . Set it to 10-15 minutes. Before that time delimitor will not be added, as useless.
If you used my "Doublepost Prevention Plus" mod before, please, remember settings and uninstall it first.

This mod is developped here http://github.com/rcdesign/vb-merge_doubleposts . Patches are welcome.

I installed this mod and merge works, but does not insert the text (delimeter text) between the two posts together. Why?

question:
if imposed a "merge time" 10 min ...
I write post now,
and then a user posts a reply two minutes later
and again I post a post after two minutes, this will not last merge my first though spent less than 10 minutes because there was post from another user, correct?

If user posts are not consecutive, those are not merged anyway. Delimiter added only if time difference > post edit history lag. So, 3 cases:
  • Very often posts merged without splitter (no needs to place useless carbage)
  • Less often posts merged with delimiter, if set (and you can see relative time offset there)
  • Othres posts - not merged.

Sorry, this I understand ...

"Last Edided by ..." is set to 3 minutes.

Merge time is set to 10 minutes.
Delimeter text: [i] Added after (1) [/ i]:
Use delimeter for forums posts: YES
Edit Reason: BLANK
Enable thread bump: NO

If I send post now and then another post after five minutes, the mod you need to merge correctly (OK) but not in the same place between the two messages together that I set the text delimeter.
Why?

Thanks

Make sure, that "Use delimeter for forums posts" set YES.

According to screenshot, you defined delimiter message, but fogot to define where to apply. That can seems a duplicating functionality, but it's needed for other addons, which defines more complicated conditions for delimiter appearance.
