Released: 31 Jan 2009 Last Update: 13 Jun 2009 Downloads: 3630
Not Supported Uses Plugins Auto-Template Translations  

As of 24 Nov 2017 this modification has been withdrawn.

This is an updated version of the popular modification, previously released by Xenon. It is released with his kind permission.

Basically, if member posts in a thread where they were the previous last poster, then if the conditions are met, their new post will be auto-merged into the previous post instead of creating a new "double" post.

A number of options are provided ;

Time Limit - if more than xxx minutes have passed since the last post, no merge is done.

Timestamp Spacer - if enabled, a timestamped spacer is added between the old post text and the new post text.

Post Timestamp Update - if enabled the newly merged post will have its post time updated to the new time, otherwise it retains the time of the original post.

Spacer Colour - allows you to set the colour of the spacer between merged posts.

Usergroup exceptions - Allows you to exempt certain usergroups from the doublepost merges.

Forum exceptions - Allows you to exempt certain forums form the doublepost merges.

All settings are located in vBulletin Options > Doublepost Prevention.


To install just unzip the XML and import into vB using the ACP Product Manager.


History:

v3.8.001 : First Release for vB 3.8.
v3.8.002 : Phrased the post separater.
v3.8.003 : Added JS Template - removing need to edit quick reply javascript file.
v3.8.004 : Updated spacer options.
v3.8.005 : Updated timestamp spacer to fix issue with large merge times.

Thanks, when you use quick reply, it doesn't work with ajax, it places another post underneath but all off center until you refresh.

Great.

For all who have the compressed javascript files:

Just copy the content of vbulletin_quick_reply.js into http://elfz.laacz.lv/beautify/

Beautify it, change the file and upload it.

EDIT:

This does not work, cause content of the uncompressed javascript file is differen!!!

Posts with attachments are not merged by design, I have no plans to alter that.
