Bump or de-bump thread w/ usergroup permissions

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.

Works without a problem on 3.7 gold.

Make sure you revert ALL templates AFTER upgrading to 3.7, then install this hack again with plugin overwrite and template edit. Should work.

For limit for bumping and de bumping, if I set it to 0, is that 0 or unlimited?

Also, any chance for an update, so we don't have to do any template edits?

Installed on VB 3.7.0 and it's working fine. The only issue I've found is it doesn't update the forumhome page when a bump happens. For it to show the correct time/date I have to go into the ACP ---> maintenance --> update counters --> Rebuild Forum information

Does this get done automatically with a cron job or is this something that I will have to manually run everytime I bump some threads?

I installed this and the 0 setting is actually 0. So you have to go in and actually set a number. Since I wanted mine to be unlimited I just set it to like 150 or something and it works now.

Yeah, zero essentially deactivates the mod for all users until you activate it for them, unfortunately. I will look at setting this in a vboptions of some sort in future.

There's one missing from yours.

Go to Plugins and Products System -> Add Plugin
Product: bump or de-bump threads
Hook Location: threadmanage_action_switch
Title: Action Switch
Plugin Php Code:

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

I swear that'll sort it for you.
...and thanks for even bothering to troubleshoot this.
i am trying to do this because i get the same database error
but i dont seem to get it right
where do i put the php code ?

I had this installed, but when I upgraded to 3.7 I decided to remove it because it is for 3.7. I only have items installed that are made for the version I am running. Now when I try to update any user group I get this error "Unknown column 'bumpthreadspermissions' in 'field list'". To uninstall it I did the uninstall product. How can I fix this so I can update my user groups again.

Works on 3.7.4 (albeit with the 'stays unread until you mark forum as read' thing )
