As of 24 Nov 2017 this modification has been withdrawn.

This is an updated version of the popular modification, previously released by Xenon. It is released with his kind permission.

Basically, if member posts in a thread where they were the previous last poster, then if the conditions are met, their new post will be auto-merged into the previous post instead of creating a new "double" post.

A number of options are provided ;

Time Limit - if more than xxx minutes have passed since the last post, no merge is done.

Timestamp Spacer - if enabled, a timestamped spacer is added between the old post text and the new post text.

Post Timestamp Update - if enabled the newly merged post will have its post time updated to the new time, otherwise it retains the time of the original post.

Spacer Colour - allows you to set the colour of the spacer between merged posts.

Usergroup exceptions - Allows you to exempt certain usergroups from the doublepost merges.

Forum exceptions - Allows you to exempt certain forums form the doublepost merges.

All settings are located in vBulletin Options > Doublepost Prevention.


To install just unzip the XML and import into vB using the ACP Product Manager.


History:

v3.8.001 : First Release for vB 3.8.
v3.8.002 : Phrased the post separater.
v3.8.003 : Added JS Template - removing need to edit quick reply javascript file.
v3.8.004 : Updated spacer options.
v3.8.005 : Updated timestamp spacer to fix issue with large merge times.

Thanks, Paul. The only issue I see with the current version of this add-on is that the edits to vbulletin_quick_reply.js are going to need to be redone with each upgrade. I don't suppose there's any way around that, is there?

Never mind - clarified above. So if one decides not to bother with that edit, it will still work correctly but not update via Ajax (i.e., you'll have to refresh the page to see the automerge)... is that correct?

Works fine, very nice mod.

However, is it normal for it to create a new post when using quick reply?

Edit:

I think it's okay, it makes a second post when using quick reply but when I reload the thread it's only the one post.

I believe so (See below).

That means you havent done the JS edit (correctly).

OK - then it means it works the Way Xenon´s does before. His one has the same small Problem all the Time.

Great. I can upgrade now.

First I was happy to see new version is available, then disappointed by installation step where you need to edit vB file.

Thanks to both, Paul and Xenon.

Hmmm... You should move this:

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

to Phrase.

Something like:

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

Thanks for the reply Paul. I guess I won't update this. I know I'll forget to update the JS when I upgrade. Heck, I can't remember much these days. I know that I'll upgrade and it won't work, then I'll spend hours trying to figure out why. LOL

Well, since the time is manually edited into the post, everybody will see 1 time zone because the text remains constant between time zones.

Heh... seems we've done similar products simultaneousely . My one doesn't need JS edits, works with AJAX and merge attachments too. Will release it in a week. It was done for 3.7 and was not tested for 3.8 yet.

Good for you. I hope people are grateful.

I think some members forget that things here are released free and wont always do exactly what they want.
