Post Icons Forum Permissions

vB Version: 3.5.4 Rating: (6 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 52
Released: 11 Mar 2006 Last Update: 21 Mar 2006 Downloads: 102
Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Additional Files Re-usable Code Translations  

'Post Icons Forum Permissions' allows you to restrict post icons to certain forums.
vBulletin only allows you to set permissions to user groups.

Another feature of this plugin is that it adds an option to group the post icons in the submission form. These groups are collapsable.

That's pretty much all this plugin does.
The plugin adds a new admincp page to the "Post Icons" groups that will allow you to set the permission for each forum. By default the post icon groups can be used in all forums.

To install simply copy the 'pifp.php' file to the admincp directory and install the product XML. You will need to reload the admincp menu frame in order for the new menu item to show up.

New in v1.0.1
  • Restrict usage to first post (the initial thread post)
  • Restrict usage to replies
  • Restrict usage in Private Message (or rather all non-forum posts) (first post and reply settings have no effect on this setting)

New in v1.1
  • Post icon grouping
    You can enable this feature in the vbulletin settings under "Message Posting Interface Options" -> "Post icon grouping" (disabled by default)

New in v1.1.1
  • Initially only the category of the post icon group that contains the selected icon is not collapsed. If no post icon was set (new replies) the first group is collapsed. This way only one category will be open when editing or creating a post.

Very cool. Will hit install once I download it later. One question though:

Could you set it so that certain icons could only be used in certain forums by specific groups? Such that an "Announcment" icon could only be used by Admins in the site news forum?

yes, you simply have to set the premissions for the groups in the old fashion way and then set the forum permissions through this plugin.
The plugin extends the default behavior.

Muerte, I've discovered one problem with this hack that's somewhat more of an oversight than a bug: Even if you set a post icon group to only show up in a few particular forums, they will still all show up when using private messages. This, obviously, is undesirable. Any way it can be changed so that PMs are covered by the hack as well?

Folder version? You mean collapsable post icon groups?

ps, there is only one minor issue. by default the post icon groups are not collapsed. I haven't found a way to force the initial collapsing and still respect the stored collapsing.
