Not Supported Uses Plugins Auto-Template Re-usable Code  

vb 3.8 version here

This mod join consecutive posts of the same member to single one. That prevents nasty "bumps".

That's a complete rewrite of "Double Post Prevention Plus", that was announced here. Besides some new features, merge algorythm changed too. It doesn't creates dummy posts anymore. Code is reuseable at last.

Well, what this mod do:
  • The main - it merge consecuent posts of the same user to single one
  • Yes, it cares about attachments
  • Yes, it cares about AJAX posting
  • Yes, it cares about social groups, if you wish
  • It can add splitter with RELATIVE time. Users from different time zones will not be confused
  • Relative time can be translated via addon for languages with complex semantics (russian translation included).
It just works

How to install:
  1. Upload files from appropriate directory
  2. Import product XML
  3. If you use russian language - import translation addon from "./lang" dir. You should not do it for other languages.
  4. Go to ACP ant set necessary product options (see screenshot).
  5. Check ACP -> Message Posting and Editing Options -> Time to Wait Before Starting to Display 'Last Edited by...' . Set it to 10-15 minutes. Before that time delimitor will not be added, as useless.
If you used my "Doublepost Prevention Plus" mod before, please, remember settings and uninstall it first.

This mod is developped here http://github.com/rcdesign/vb-merge_doubleposts . Patches are welcome.

Attachments, one pass, relative time in delimiter. Better design, lol

But PM provides better support. His modes where converted to vb4 much earlier, than my ones.

Would it be possible to only merge the post if the message contains certain text?

That is, if a post does NOT contain certain text it is not counted as a double post?

Only if you modify code or write addon.

Just installed this, and it works great! I like the merging and it perfectly handles the double post problem.

Ok, after a day of using this I came across a major problem. Something in this mod conflicts with my Vaultwiki add-on. First, it makes it so the "Last Post" link on the forum home leads to a search page instead of the real page. Second, it makes it so I cannot create new wiki articles.

The author of VaultWiki said this was the problem:

This is not a VaultWiki bug. The mod you are using "Merge Double Posts" was setting $post['postid'] to a NULL value at hook newpost_complete.

Please report this to the mod creator. The post ID is already set in the file above...

If you could release a fix for this I would be very grateful. I really like your mod, but I paid to use VaultWiki and it's a bit more essential to my site.

Would you really need the Ignore forums AND Enabled Forums? Wouldn't just one setting actually do both? Whatever is enabled is all the would show. No need to ignore anything then. What would happen if you had the same forumid set for both options?

This was requested in 3.8 version by different people. Some people asked for "enable" setting, other for "ignore". Of cause, there are no reasons to use both. I don't use any at my site.

Well, it does sound kind of confusing, you must admit. But you are the one who is going to have to do the support for it when someone enters the same forumid into both settings and can't figure out why it won't work.

I think, that if one enter same IDs on both settings, this problem should be solved by medical intrussion. For other cases, existing of both settings is a bit strange, but doesn't make a problem. Many mods have the same setting pairs, to fit different situations.

By default, mod goes with 100% working config, and best idea is to leave it intact.

Well, I have never seen a mod that had both settings as they are basically the same thing in reverse. But it is your mod to do with as you please.

Hope, it's fixed in 2.8. Thanks again for bug report.
