Change Posts Owner

Created by Marius Czyz aka Phalynx.

Tested on vBulletin 3.6, 3.7 and 3.8

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.

Features
- Can change owner and date of selected posts and threads (including database attachments - it will not move file attachments)
- Can change owner to unregistered user and back
- Can accept user id and username
- Username input is driven by AJAX
- Post count of involved users will be increased/decreased
- Thread and forum counters of involved threads and forums will be rebuild
- Supports inline moderation
- Makes use of $template_hooks, hooks and simple group permissions
- Every change will leave a notice in moderation log

Features for future releases
- Incrementally change time, f.e. first posts is 12:01:01, second one will get 12:01:02h, third one 12:01:03h....
- Moving file based attachments to the new user

Nice, but how could this be used?

Jase2 05 May 2008 17:45

Nice hack - saves messing in the database via phpMyAdmin.

Select the thread/post, scroll down at the moderation level, select "Change posts owner" from the drop down menu.

What general purpose can this MOD serve? What reasons would there be for the original post owner be changed to someone else?

Maybe I'm missing something here...why would you need/use this? :confused:

Long period leave absences, job changes, etc... Among many others examples, boards where Threads with important contents must be updated from time to time by the thread(s) owner(s). :up:

Also like Jase2 said above:

Sort of understand. But if a user is away for an extended period of time, why would someone else take over ownership of his/her posts/threads? Wouldn't other owners just keep replying to keep the threads/posts alive?

PaylaX 05 May 2008 18:53

Thanks. I think this mod very useful

macc 05 May 2008 18:58

Hello!

Nice mod - thanks!

will just ask ... can we use this mod when we will move or separate some posts from some threads? (exp. user who posts with re: prefix - make like thread owner in another forum?) - that is sometimes problem when we move some posts ... and they come on top of threads!

Just an example:

With this hack you can change the thread owner, yes.

If you cannot find a valueable reason for this mod than you probably don't need it.
