Change Posts Owner

Created by Marius Czyz aka Phalynx. Converted to vBulletin 4 by Speedy1505.

Tested on vBulletin 4.0.3 and 4.0.4

What does this modification do?
It can change the owner and date of multiple threads and post. For this, it adds another option to your mod actions on forumdisplay, showthread and search results. After selecting some threads or posts, you can choose the new owner by name or by UserID. "By name" works with the AJAX namesuggestion, we all know it from writing a PM. After changing the name, it rebuilds thread/forum counters and post counter of old and new user. Attachments will also be assigned to new user.

Installtime: <1 minutes
Difficulty: very easy (1 product)

Demo is not available, due to missing permissions on my board.

Please click Mark as INSTALLED, otherwise I will not support you.

Thanks, great mod. Installed!

I have made a couple of small edits to the code, relabelling the tool and buttons to "Change TIME/DATE/Author" since I use this mod mostly to edit the time of a post so that I can INSERT or MOVE a post in an existing thread. Great if I want to add a comment between existing posts.

In fact, a great addition would be to be able to select a new button "INSERT POST" that would automatically reply with a time/date stamp half way between the selected post and the next post.

I removed a similar mod because this didn't require template modifications and cannot find where in the post to edit. Wouldn't be in edit, go advanced? Are we sure it works in 4.08?

Works fine on 4.08, highlight/select the thread/post (checkbox top right) and it's in the "Moderation Tools" bottom right.
