Version 1.2: Added {DATE} Options
Version 1.0: Initial Release

This mod was a request. The goal was to post a new thread regularly each week. The thread content would be Identical each week.

You set your thread options in the mod settings, and then schedule the included scheduled task to suit your needs.

Simple mod should work on both VB 3.x and 4.x.

Anyway to have an option to define the interval of when the thread is started? For example, I could use this if it started an auto-thread once a month instead of once a week.

That is all controlled by the scheduled task. There is no time interval hard coded into the mod. So yes once a month is possible. In fact once a month is the longest possible interval and every 10 minutes is the shortest interval possible using the vbulletin scheduled task system.

I'm lost but what's the purpose of this?

BirdOPrey5 15 Aug 2011 00:33

Someone wanted a mod to post the same thread each week.. Maybe for a contest entry or something. So I made it.

I understand it would be good but none of that is going to happen in this mod. This mod was a simple mod for a simple request. I do not intend to add much, if any, functionality. Since I don't have much use for this mod myself, it's on the "back burner."

Hi BirdOPrey5, My idea: mod can make auto up for random threads

I don't understand... Auto up random threads? This mod creates a thread at a specific time- it would make no sense for it to be random- anything else would be outside the scope of this mod completely.

Can {Date} be used in the thread title, so as to clearly distinguish each new weeks thread from the previous?
If not, can you add a "date" option?
Can you add options for frequency; Weekly, Monthly, Quarterly?

BirdOPrey5 28 Jan 2012 16:01

The {DATE} idea is something I can put in the next release, but no idea when it may be. Frankly, it may be a while, this isn't really a mod with much demand.

The frequency is chosen in the scheduled task manager- you can change it from once every 10 minutes to once a month, with a lot of possibilities in between.

Quarterly will likely not be an option because it is not an option for a scheduled task and to add such an option would mean requiring the mod to alter the database- nothing this simple mod was even intended to do.
