First Post Editable Indefinitely

Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Re-usable Code Translations  

Sometimes you want your users to be able to edit the first post in their thread indefinitely but still have a time limit on all other posts in the thread. This would be useful if they want to constantly update their first thread with new information, or an updated list of some sort way past the normal editing time limit. This modification will allow them to edit that first post indefinitely.

Notes
- I wrote this for my own site and it works exactly how I want it to. I have no plans to change it or expand it in any way
- No, you may not change the time limit, this only works for if the time limit for the first post is 0 - indefinite.

FOR 4.1.12 - SEE THIS POST - http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showp...9&postcount=63

Version History:
1.0 2009-11-17: - initial release by Lynne at vbulletin.org
1.1 2009-11-21: - added option in Forum Manager to turn on indefinite editing of first post per forum
1.2 2010-07-22: - fixed to work in 4.0.4. Also moved plugin from global_complete to global_bootstrap_complete since global_complete is deprecated (4.0.4)




To install:

1. Import product-lynne_first_post_editable.xml
2. By default, editing first post indefinitely is Off per forum. To turn it on, go into the Forum Manager > select your forum to Edit > Make first post in thread editable indefinitely > Yes

To uninstall:

1. Uninstall "First Post Editable Indefinitely v4.0"


French translation also below thanks to Albibak - product-lynne_first_post_editable_fr.xml

But it would be nice, if we could de/activate this in the forumsettings.
For example: i have a shopforum(category) where this is very usefull.
But the users shouldn't edit there posts in all the other forums(categories).

I'll have to see what my time is like on that as right now it does what I want and I have a ton of other mods I need to work on for my site.

It's ok

Maybe i can find the time to code it and to release it, because i've seen that you've marked this as "reusable code"

I always mark my stuff as reusable. There are always so many ideas people have to change a mod to work how they want it, so why not change it and release it also? Like change the edit time also - I wanted it indefinite, but I'm sure someone will come along and want it set to something else. So, let them modify the code and release that, too.

Hi Lynne, great ideas as usually from your mods.

I know you said there's no intention to expand it but how about based on forum ID ? I mean, only for those forums I would like it to work. Any change please ?

Thanks, this is almost what I am looking for, but I am after the ability to select which posts have the indefinite edit ability. I know you are not extending this mod, but if someone else was to make this change, would it be a big one?

I have not released it for 3.8, no. I may look into that when I look into the above change.

You could probably just add a condition into the plugins for that thread. I'm not sure, but that is probably what I would look into if it is just for a few threads.

I modified this to now be set per forum in the Forum Manager. By default, it is set to No and you must set it to Yes for the forum to have the first post editable indefinitely.

Great mod, but it would be cool if there were settings to only apply to certain forums instead of just globally.

Whoops, not sure how I missed the second page of posts. Didn't notice it in the description either.


Perfect mod, thanks!
