What Does This Hack Do?

It is a update of my v3.8.x hack available here, designed to work with vBulletin v4.0.x.

This is a hack that adds an extra option on the Search this Thread drop down list on the first post of a thread (along with all the other thread tools) which allows your members to search for their own posts within a thread they have posted in, just like here at vb.org.

As an added bonus (thanks to Michelle for the idea), unlike the version here at vb.org, you have the option to check if a user has posts in the thread they are in and not display the link to users who do not have posts (why show the link if there will be no search results?). Please note, if this option is enabled for a usergroup, it will add 1 query when a user from that usergroup is viewing a thread.

There are no file or template changes at all, and is fully phrased.

DEMO: Click on the Search this Thread or Search this Mod drop down list and select Find My Posts in any thread you have posted in to see it in action.


vBulletin Version Compatibility

This hack can be used with vBulletin versions 4.0.0 - 4.2.0.

For the v3.8.x version of this hack, which will also work with v3.7.x and v3.6.x - check here.

Good works.

But could you explain this point, because I didn't understand.

Quote:

In the Usergroup Manager edit the usergroup(s) you want:

* To see the link (disabled by default for all usergroups).
* To check to see if they have posts in that thread (disabled by default for all usergroups).
Thanks.

Same problem.

For some reason it's no longer hooking ..
I just added it to the template..
only thing is that all user group have access to it..

no big dea,l why have a addon if all can't benefit from it

in the showthread template
I added this

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

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

so it looks like this


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

Mosh
I have a stupid question ..
in the admin setting in the usergroups ..
there are 2..options
I get the first one but
Do you want to check to see if a user has posts in a thread, and if they do not, then not display the Find My Posts link?
NOTE: If enabled, then it will add 1 query to showthead.

What does it do or add.. with it on I see the extra query but I don't see any extra options..

thanks

If you go to any thread here and the search feature within a thread, you will see a "Find My Posts" link regardless of if you have any posts in the thread or not.

Now the option I have in my hack uses an extra query to check if you have any posts in a thread (if enabled) and displays the link only if there any of your posts in the thread, otherwise it does not display a link. If the option is not enabled, it behaves just like it does here at vBulletin.org.
