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.

Here are some different buttons that I'm using. They are in .png format so it just looks cleaner against other backgrounds. So, you need to rename to "bump.gif" and "debump.gif"

Enjoy

Thanks

Has anyone been able to figure out the 'stays unread' problem / bug ?

My members are starting to get a little annoyed by seeing these at the top of their 'unread' lists although they have already read them.

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).
so does this mean if i limit normal user group to 3 does it mean all users have 3 bumps each to that thread or 3 bumps between all the users

i am using 3.83 but not working i keep getting this error that it is trying, and i get redirected to a blank screen. According to the browser window the task is done.

But, the thread isn't being bumped. It remains in the same place, no time change or location change.

How change limit times per thread to limit times per day ?
Please help me!

I am still surprised to see such a useful and needed function not default in vb. Now that VB4 is Gold and it looks like the developer has been inactive since Sep. it does not look good for this modification. Hopefully either the dev or another one will bring this feature to VB4.
