Updates
  • Threads expired in days not seconds

Exitising Users Please Read
Open the file update_1.0_to_1.1.txt


WetWired Gets credit for the original idea, i saw this created on his forums long ago, and finaly decided to code it. and share with vBulletin.

What this does
This will allow you as the admin to set a time limit till a thread is considered expired. If the thread happens to be expired, the user will see a error message. But a staff member (ie, mod, sup-mod, and admin) can unexpire the thread by posting in it, then the counter will start over again. This will prevent those anoyying thread digger members we all seem to dislike.

This works as a per forum basis. You can turn on/off any forum you want.


To do list...
  • Time to install: 5-10 minutes
  • Queries to run: 1
  • File Mods: 2
    • /admincp/forum.php
    • /forums/newreply.php
  • Templates to edit: 0
  • Templates to add: 0
  • New Phrases: 4

Please read carefully and make all the necessary changes as stated. This is will work if installed properly.
PLEASE REMEMBER TO BACKUP BEFORE YOU BEGIN! If you like this hack

Looks good - but I really would prefer the time to expire in days, not seconds.

@Live_Wire: Xdays = XX*60*60*24 == Xseconds... do it at a per days setting, not seconds..

Should be in newreply.php around line 107. If you still can't find it, look for this:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

And add it above that.

Works great! You should modify your install directions to let people know where that modification takes place.

BTW, great mod... very happy to see this, this was exactly what I was looking for.

I did, but I wasn't sure if it displayed that when the thread was opened or if it did that when it was replied to. Was hoping the latter, but wasn't sure.

Just quick question. Does this take the last post date as the start of the counter or the date of the threadstarter?

For example. The counter is set for 30 days. User makes a thread on my site June 1st 2004. There are a few more posts added on, last post in that thread is June 23rd 2004. So would the thread expire on June 1st when it was first started, or June 23rd when the last post?

I've been needing a hack like this for specials that expire, classifieds, etc. I would love to be able to set the expiration at the thread level instead the whole forum -- since some specials expire in, say, 4 days and some in 30 days... possible or too much work?

I understand. Maybe I can learn from your code and come up with something. Great hack!
