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"

Lynne,

Is there any reason that the original poster would be able to edit their post but not be able to manage/add attachments in that post? I've checked the vB options and everything seems OK.

Thank you

this idea is great but how about making it work per groupid and for evey post instead of the first post

that would make it great feature for special usergroups who are not a staff member ..

Setting the edit time per usergroup was already done as a separate mod, I'm pretty sure. It shouldn't be too hard to do at all. However, this was a mod that I needed for me and I don't need any more options in it so I won't be changing this one.

I am also looking for a way to have first post editable for all forums enabled by default or a query to enable all.

I would appreciate if Lynne suggests a way .
