Bump or de-bump thread w/ usergroup permissions

This modification is in the archives.
vB Version: 3.6.x Rating: (10 votes - 4.90 average) Installs: 115
Released: 30 Aug 2007 Last Update: 18 Sep 2007 Downloads: 916
Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Template Edits Additional Files  

DESCRIPTION
This is a slightly modified version of "Bump thread and make thread older" by Kentaurus, and "Bump Threads/Make Threads older" by Andreas, who both provided the basis for this work.
It allows the administrator to set which usergroups can use this feature, and can limit the number of times it can be used on a single thread by anyone using a thread bump limit.

Be kind - it's my first attempt at making one of these, and the documentation for each version of vbulletin is confusing.

OPTIONS INCLUDED:
An option called "Bump thread" allows a user with the correct permissions set to make the last post in a thread equivalen to the current time.

An option called "make thread older" or "debump" allows a user with permissions set to make the last post in a
thread one day older.

Details
1 Product XML (1 Plugin, 12 Phrases (+admin help topics), 1 template re-write if you have Andreas' Template Modification System installed (ignored if not))

Only single Thread bumping/de-bumping is supported.
I do not intend to upgrade this product, but may do if I find the time.

INSTALLATION:
Unzip BumpThreads.zip
1. Upload bitfield_bumpthreads.xml to your ./includes/xml folder
2. Import the product-bumpthreads.xml
3. If you do not have Andreas' Template Modification System installed, you must do template edits by hand. These are found in the templateedits.txt file.
4. Upload bump.gif and debump.gif to your images/buttons folder.
5. Set Usergroup permissions for the product.

UNINSTALLATION:
1. Uninstall the product.

USAGE:
1. Set individual usergroup permissions to turn on the ability to Bump/De-bump a thread for each usergroup (default is no ability to access this function).
2. Limit the number of times a thread can be bumped/de-bumped by each usergroup (in case you want normal users to be able to bump a thread only once, but for moderators it can be many times).

Database alterations carried out:
1. Adds columns 'bump' and 'debump' to your 'thread' table to count the number of times a thread has been bumped.
2. Adds columns 'bumpthreadspermissions' and 'bumpthreadslimit' to the 'usergroup' table to track who has permission to use the feature, and how many times per thread.

Contributors:
Buttons courtesy of the excellent talents of dutchbb.

I updated this mod to include everything to date in one zip folder.
Installation instructions are better defined, too.

LCN2007: In the template edits, replace reputation.gif with bump.gif and debump.gif to use the above buttons (only needed if you have already installed this product).

In vB 3.6.8 when bumping or debumping threads I get

vBulletin Message
Invalid Action Specified
Any help will be appreciated - Also where's the download that includes the bump/debump function inline?

Thanx

Jacquii.

ps - GARS, vBSEO, vBAdvance installed...

Can you check in your Plugin Manager that the one under Product : Bump or de-bump Threads called "Action Switch" is enabled. Go to edit it, and make sure it is active.

I have no plans to put the two mods together at the moment, but if anyone else would like to take this code and extend it, feel free to do so.

Depends on how many bumps you set to be allowed in the particular usergroup you are in.
To change the number of bumps OR debumps allowed for a thread, scroll down in the usergroup settings and change it there.

Hey RINGLEADER - thanx for the response... I did check the Plugin Manager and the Action Switch is enabled... But still the same error when bumping or debumping threads: Invalid Action Specified

I'm not sure what exactly to do with this... Could it possibly have a conflict with vBSEO or GARS? Anyway - perhaps you have another suggestion?

Thanx,

JAcquii.

btw - sent you a PM about the inline moderation hack

It might be a conflict with vbSEO alright.
The bit that error refers to looks for a threadid when the thread is bumped.

Can you post your URL format (an example like "forum-category/867-thread-title.html#post4029") and I will see if I can provide you with a workaround for this that works.

hmmm - I was thinking it could have something to do with vBSEO
At anyrate - the JPiC rewrite rule is [forum_title]/[thread_title]-[thread_id].html

Thanx AND Thanx for the email as well

Jacquii.

It's all automatically installed with a product.
PM me your email address and I'll give it to you (can't attach to PM's).

I've attached screenshots of the two functions it adds, so you're sure it's what you're looking for.
I'm looking for moderator-only mass debumping of threads (using the check boxes). Could you please post the mods you made in that thread? Andreas only does it within the thread.

Thank You

Hey RINGLEADER - still waiting - is there a chance you've found a workaround for vBSEO?
Thanx,

Jacquii.
