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

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.

I'm missing this on vB4.

Are you planning to update it?

I've updated it for my forums, and it works fine, but it would be great to have official support.

I've looked into this one as well, looks workable. But if you have a working vB4 version of this mod already, could you somehow upload/attach it?

The table structures seems to have remaining mostly the same, it's mostly the new variables system (and registration of them) that caused me trouble getting it to show at all. Quite frustrating to debug

I can not post it without Psionic Vision's permissions.

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

Ah, that's to bad. I think I see the changes needed.. it just looks like a lot of work

Did you use/edit the latest version 2.1.0 ? I ask 'cos I had a lower version which I initially looked at, that one I could follow. The 2.1.0 uses this method of injecting itself into templates which is more tricky.

Come to think of it, is that more future-proof then the previous $adv_edit variable method ? Once I understood how to pass variables around in vB4 that seemed to work ok. Though repeating lots of code over use in several templates gets annoying.

I will pay someone to modify this for 4.0 suite so that I can edit author names when creating articles. PM me if anyone can do this.

This mod takes ages to install when I try to upload it and it shoots my server load through the roof making my forum unable for 10-20 minutes. I tried this on a test site and then my live site and same results. This mod is not friendly to big boards!

Uploading by itself cannot be made problematic by the code you're uploading, it's not active yet I've used 2.02 on vb 3.6.7 and that ran fine.

Aynybody heard from the author yet? I'd like to see the vB4 version made available, would hate to have to do work already done.

For anybody needing just the edit author/date functionality, check out this mod for vB4: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=241481

Maybe you could release it for us since the original author doesn't seem to be supporting this anymore?
