This modification is in the archives.
vB Version: 3.7.x Rating: (2 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 21
Released: 07 Apr 2008 Last Update: 08 Apr 2008 Downloads: 122
Not Supported Uses Plugins Translations  

Introduction

I found a thread where the user was wondering if there was a feature within vBulletin that would allow you to specify if certain users posts can be edited or not. This is the outcome of about 5 hours work (with waiting on help with AJAX stuff).

Requirements
  • This has been tested on vBulletin v3.7.0 Beta 6 and should work with all vB 3.7.x versions. It has not been tested on lower versions of vBulletin.
Installation
  1. Upload product XML
Features
  • Completely removes the ability for anyone to edit a users posts.
  • User IDs defined in the vBulletin Options.
  • Works with Quick Edit (checks after user submits)
  • Works with full edit (checks before loading page).

Interesting idea but I think the Super Admin should still have editing abilities.

I believe its best use is to make sure moderators do not edit other moderator's postings.

Not yet. I just wanted to get the basics for the person who needed this mod.

They will sooner or later. Probably in the next version.

This could be useful if you don't want moderators editing Administrator posts or such. or completely making staff posts uneditable for anyone.

That is one use.

It was a matter of adding one check to both plugins. And anything I can do to help the people that actually want to use my modifications.

The check you just added, is it an option you can turn off?

Not yet. It can be easily added. Just give me a list of wanted features and I will do my best to add them in. I started with the bare basics.

All I need is an option for the SuperAdmin to be allowed to edit the post. If you are going to leave in the option for the poster to be able to edit their own post, I would rather have that option settable to off/on.
