Mod of the Month winner!
Top 10 most installed mods for vB3.6!

Same plug-in found here:

http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=125871


There are no differences as this plug-in works with the 3.5, 3.6 or 3.7 releases of vBulletin.


If you are like me and migrated from .threads, a common modification was an "AE detector", a simple mod that saved a cookie of a history of ids logged into on your site. If someone logged into more than one account, you got a PM letting you know that your site was being accessed from multiple accounts.

Over the years this was very helpful in identifying users who were posting under multiple accounts (alter-egos!) and users who would return after being banned.

You might be wondering why I don't use the vbcookie call - well, thats because on logout all vB cookies are cleared, so we need to store a cookie that is not effected by the login/logout process.

New Installation
1. Add New Product with attached XML
2. Go to vBulletin Options -> AE Multiple Login Detection Settings and set your specific settings.

Time to install: Easy - 2 minutes.

Upgrade
If you installed this as a Plug-in manually, you can delete that plugin and install this Product, just make sure to go into the Options and set them accordingly.

I hope you find this useful and will click INSTALL if you use it; should it prove useful to enough people I can look at making this installation more automated without the need for edits and an Admin Options page.

To upgrade you will want to reimport this XML file and edit your options accordingly.

1.0.3
-----
. Added a check to ensure that users weren't deleted when reporting violations
. added htmlspecialchars_uni call to username

Note: I am unable to get the call to construct_phrase with $vbphrase['multiplelogin_alert'] to work reliably, as such the $message variable is still set manually inside the plug-in and not via the phrase. If anyone has an idea of why this might not always work, I'm all ears.

1.0.2
-----
. Updated to include exclusion groups, users
. Changed so PM is sent by ae sender id

1.0.1
-----
. Released as a Product (thank you PHPGeek2k3 for your help)
. Added option to post to a forum versus send a PM (or both)
. All settings moved into Admin Option

1.0.0
-----
Initial release.

Evercookie is much harder to remove than normal cookies.

BS. It's just cookies, the same as the one you're sending your users now.

Surprised this isn't available as an add-on on this site yet. It would indeed be very effective.

4.2.2 breaks this since the split() function is deprecated.

That's not a 4.2.2 issue that's a php issue, your version of php was recently updated; however, even if the function is deprecated it will still work, its just a warning letting you know the function may or may exist in future versions of php.

How to fix. (Untested)

ACP --> Plugins & Products --> Plugin Manager, Find the plugin called, E Detector: Login checker, under the group, Multiple Login Detector, edit it and find this bit of code:

Looks the same to me? But I don't see any syntax changes other than replacing every 'split' with 'explode' (in 4 places)? Any reason a Find and Replace wouldn't work?

Updated code in post. Find & Replace should work.

Awesome, I have updated the original XML file with these edits and tested it as an upgrade and fresh install and it seems to work fine now under 4.2.2.

If you want to take the lazy way out, just grab the attached file

Yes it will, the edits were just to fix the PHP errors.
