Message Editing Hierarchy

vB Version: 3.5.0 Beta 1 Rating: (1 vote - 5.00 average) Installs: 54

Not Supported Uses Plugins  

Have you ever noticed that Admins and Super Moderators can edit/delete/peak everyone's messages in your forum? This also applies to Moderators for the board they are assigned.

Normally this shouldn't be a problem, but on bigger sites with a lot of Mod's it could lead to problems sometimes.
This is a Plugin version of my vb3.0 hack i released here,

After applying the hack default editing permissions in your board will be changed like this:
  • Moderators: Can edit everyone's posts in the forum they're assigned, UNLESS author is another Moderator, SuperMod or Admin.
  • SuperModerators: Can edit everyone's post in all boards UNLESS author is another SuperMod or Admin.
  • Admins: Can edit eveyone's post in all boards UNLESS user is another Admin
  • SuperAdmins: Can edit eveyone's post in all boards (Superadmins are defined in config.php)
So the hack will apply a "message editing hierarchy" in your board and everyone will be able to edit messages for ones who are below him and cant touch messages of his superiors..If they try, they'll get no permission page. This will apply for editing the messages, deleting the message via edit message or just peaking inside it. But be warned: messages can still be deleted via "Delete Thread / Posts" menu..

If you install this plugin, please click install, thank you..

Enjoy!
Xenon

Ok, i've uploaded a newer version.

AJAX editing will just result in a no change version, but no JS error should appear anymore.

preventing the editbutton or ajax at all, isn't that easy, right now, i just see a way which would mean a lot of queries additionally to showthread, so i won't do so

Xenon, the early version of this hack on my 3.0.7 board struggles when a user has an additional usergroup. It seems as though the hack works properly, but any moderator or super moderator that is also a secondary member of another usergroup has the ability to edit/etc admin & super-admin posts.

Is there a way to perhaps prevent this?

Note: I put it here and not in the old hack's thread, since I assume it still applies.

my hack doesn't look at primary or secondary usergroups, it uses the built in permission functions by vb, so noone should be able to edit super admin posts if he isn't a superadmin himself.

if someone can, you have added it to the super admin users in config.php or the permission system has a bug.

Alright, think I tracked it down to a bug generated in the permission system.

actually i use exactly the codeline which is used in admincp/adminpermissions.php so you better ask the vb devs why they used that way

Hey Stefan, since they eliminated the double click ajax issue, will this be made to work?

It would also be nice to have the Advanced Editing Options.
