Not Supported Uses Plugins Template Edits  

This Plugin displays a notice if a user tries to bump a thread which is $n months old (specified in AdminCP).
The thread age is calculated from the last posting inside a thread.

Important is, that this won't prevent the user to post a new posting inside an old thread, because sometimes it is useful to be able to push old threads.
However, the user will have to confirm a notice text before being able to post a reply.
Additionally, Quick reply boxes will be disabled inside old threads by default.

The Message is fully customizable from the phrases section, it uses the phrase-name "abot_explain"

The notice uses its own template (SHOWTHREAD_ERROR_ANTIBUMP) for additional customization.

German Version located here


Just a product xml file, no additional files.

Download the attached xml file, navigate inside your AdminCP to Addons/Plugins, choose import new Addon, upload the xml file and that's all!

In the standard vBulletin Settings, you'll find 2 plugin settings which should be self-explanatory.

It *should*, I will change the version requirement to 4.x.x.
However it has been developed on 4.1.4, therefore anything below is not 100% approved, but the changes aren't very grave that there might be any kind of error or strange behaviour to expect.

not installing

I'm using vBulletin 4.1.12 Patch Level 1

Trying to install as per your instructions, however, I get the message: "This file appears to be a Product, not a Plugin. Please use Manage Products to add this file."

So, I imported the xml file as a product, but it doesn't show anywhere in Admin Control Panel>Options and no "abot_explain" in Phrase Manager.

Thanks in advance for your help.
