[Ajax] Check for similar thread before posting a new one

This modification is in the archives.
vB Version: 3.6.7 Rating: (48 votes - 4.75 average) Installs: 514
Released: 08 Jul 2007 Last Update: 10 Jul 2007 Downloads: 2612
Not Supported Uses Plugins Template Edits Additional Files  

You love the 'similar threads' function and you are sick of duplicate threads just because your users don't use the search function?

Why not just combine them?

This Add-on will grab the thread title the user typed in and it will load a small box (using Ajax magic ) with 5 similar threads just like the 'similar threads' function that you can normally find under an already posted thread.

The box also tells the user to search through the similar threads first BEFORE starting a new one.


Features:
- no edits whatsoever needed, just import the product file, enable the Add-on and it works (well, it should )
- you can turn it off for certain forums or
- you can turn it off completely without leaving any code that messes your templates/files
- it can be translated
- don't like it anymore? Remove the product and you'll never see that Add-on again


Known issues:
- none


Things to consider:

It uses jQuery to get the information from ajax.php. jQuery is great and you can do many great things with it and unlike the vBulletin method it's quite easy to understand.
The jQuery file is compressed and only 20kb large.
To download the file, visit the homepage at http://jquery.com/
The link to download the file is on the right hand side.

Here's the version I use: http://code.google.com/p/jqueryjs/do....1.3.1.pack.js

Just download it and put it into the 'clientscript' folder without renaming the file.


Installation:
Download jQuery as described above.
Import the attached file using the Product Manager. Go to your vBulletin settings and search for 'Check for similar threads?'. Enable it.


Important:
It adds 2 new templates, it changes 1 template and it edits 2 files. I highly doubt that it will break you vBulletin but do a back-up and be on the safe side.



Version history:
1. initial release
2. current release
*** fixed some browser issues. The attached file is up to date.





How to fix the Opera problems in the first release:
The first release of this Add-on didn't work on Opera. To fix the problems, please follow these steps:
Open the template 'mrnasesimilarthreadcheck_header' and REPLACE the content with this code:

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

The attached file is up to date.


Support will only given to those who have clicked 'install'.

This is the key. Works fine on 3.7.2.

Not working... but found fix

I was having the same issue as most people here... I installed it and it says some text under the title saying that it will search for similar threads... but when I type something into the title box nothing happens.

The reason seems to be that you need the SPECIFIC version of jquery that the author uses because he probably hardcoded the call to it.

SOLUTION:
DOWNLOAD THIS VERSION OF THE JS FILE AND PUT IT IN YOUR CLIENTSCRIPTS FOLDER
http://code.google.com/p/jqueryjs/do....1.3.1.pack.js

Should work now

Also, you need to CLICK INSIDE THE MESSAGE BODY AREA to trigger the ajax check

MrNase, you could use Google AJAX libs api also and then users of the mod do not need to handle the jQuery installation and versions etc, just install the mod and no file uploads. I've attached my edits for your consideration.

Any specific errors or browser? Have you had this mod installed before with edited templates, did you try reverting?

It works fine on 3.7.2 for me in IE7. I don' t know that there should be any version issues, I didn't see anything that would be volitile with vBulletin versions.
