This is why i really want a Mini-Hack section here, please Chen

What this hack does:
When a User posts to a thread where he already has the lastpost, no new post will be added. The lastpost of him will be edited and the new text is put after his first message.
This would not be done, if he has an attachment in his new post or the old post is older than 1 hour (you can change this timespan yourself )

Known bugs: None

Hope someone can use it, i do

Believe this hack includes just 1!! codehack.

Excellent hack Xenon, this is truly userful

One request: Can you make it so when the user does double post, and his post is merged with the first post, that on the bottom it will state:

Last edited by ... on 06-22-02 at 01:27 PM

This would be more useful, because in some ways if a user wants to add-on to their original post by bypassing the "edited by", all they would have to do is double post. This stops them though.

very nice idea Xenon.

May I suggest an improvement? Maybe you can add another query to $action=="newreply" section to check if he is the last poster to the thread. If he is, he can be pre-warned in the screen he writes his message that his last message will be replaced with this one.

This will add an extra query to newreply.php but it can save the user from losing his last message in the thread especially when the hack is new in the board.

When someone double posts does it bring the post back to the top of the Forum Display?

Well how can you make it so that it goes back to the top. Wouldnt that make more sense? Can you please tell me how that can be done. Because what if someone wants to bump a topic that is far away down the Forum Display? Thanks
