Multiple account login detector (AE Detector)

This modification is in the archives.
vB Version: 3.6.0 Rating: (87 votes - 4.70 average) Installs: 1909
Released: 05 Sep 2006 Last Update: Never Downloads: 5892
Not Supported  

Mod of the Month winner!
Top 10 most installed mods for vB3.6!

Same plug-in found here:

http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=107566

There are no differences as this plug-in works with both 3.5 and 3.6 versions of vBulletin.


If you are like me and migrated from .threads, a common modification was an "AE detector", a simple mod that saved a cookie of a history of ids logged into on your site. If someone logged into more than one account, you got a PM letting you know that your site was being accessed from multiple accounts.

Over the years this was very helpful in identifying users who were posting under multiple accounts (alter-egos!) and users who would return after being banned.

You might be wondering why I don't use the vbcookie call - well, thats because on logout all vB cookies are cleared, so we need to store a cookie that is not effected by the login/logout process.

New Installation
1. Add New Product with attached XML
2. Go to vBulletin Options -> AE Multiple Login Detection Settings and set your specific settings.

Time to install: Easy - 2 minutes.

Upgrade
If you installed this as a Plug-in manually, you can delete that plugin and install this Product, just make sure to go into the Options and set them accordingly.

I hope you find this useful and will click INSTALL if you use it; should it prove useful to enough people I can look at making this installation more automated without the need for edits and an Admin Options page.

To upgrade you will want to reimport this XML file and edit your options accordingly.

1.0.3
-----
. Added a check to ensure that users weren't deleted when reporting violations
. added htmlspecialchars_uni call to username

Note: I am unable to get the call to construct_phrase with $vbphrase['multiplelogin_alert'] to work reliably, as such the $message variable is still set manually inside the plug-in and not via the phrase. If anyone has an idea of why this might not always work, I'm all ears.

1.0.2
-----
. Updated to include exclusion groups, users
. Changed so PM is sent by ae sender id

1.0.1
-----
. Released as a Product (thank you PHPGeek2k3 for your help)
. Added option to post to a forum versus send a PM (or both)
. All settings moved into Admin Option

1.0.0
-----
Initial release.

seems to work on 4.1.10

Ist it possible that a new post is only created when the PM was sent as well?

This doesn't seem to be posting a thread in the forum I have specified, it ONLY sends pm's...

I recently upgraded my site from 4.1.10 to 4.1.11, but I don't think that was working in 4.1.10 either.

I'm using the mod_rewrite URLS, if that matters any.

thanks

Working in 4.2.2

Needs some updates to a deprecated function to work with PHP 5.4 though (you will get function split() is deprecated error when logging in and you won't be able to log into the admin control panel either!)

To work in PHP 5.4 Edit Plugin AE Detector: Login checker

1) REPLACE:

And I see the dev hasn't been on since July 2013; not good. If he checks in, please consider marking this mod as reusable code so it's easier to try to maintain it? TIA

If you look at the thread for the VB 3.7 version of this addon, it states that the code is identical to this AND reusable.
