Possible to add usergroups or more users? Maybe for moderation "Take a look at this user!" :D

Lustikus 11 May 2013 15:50

everything is visible?

Yep, that is the problem with vb4. Different devices have different presentation code. It gets a bit difficult to write a mod for a modern web environment. Some interfaces use the API, some use the vb mobile code and then there is the regular desktop presentation view. It is why there is a need for a vb5. Same presentation code, but different views -- all through the same developers API.

It could be something we could add in... nice idea. :)

It may well have issues with TapaTalk. I'll take a look at what we can do to stop it showing in some way. It's been tricky integrating the BBCode properly as it has some inherent limitations. A few ideas to try though. Will keep you posted. Thanks for highlighting the issues. :)

I am just commenting on why it probably does not work on this wonderful free first version 1.0 of dbtechs code. I haven't used Tapatalk since we have our own mobile interface. How does it interface to vbulletins code?

Hear, hear! vB5 has a lot of potential. Been fun to start learning to code in it as well. :) Not quite sure personally how they all integrate... (TapaTalk and ForumRunner), but will see what we can do about it. :)

Is this working better at all now?

Looking forward to see enable / disable per usergroup :)

Plus, I have a suggestion, which is to notify the tagged user through the notification panel with a link to the post which he's tagged in.

Possible?

Thanks!

DragonByte Tech 09 Jul 2013 05:59

The notification has been mentioned before. I'll see what we can do about including it in the next major update. I've got a couple of fixes I need to sort out soon, and once I've completed a couple of other tasks, I'll look into it again. :)

This seems to be quite interesting. Will this also hide messages within archive and Tapatalk? Just making sure, as the other "hide" mod here on vb.org refuses to work with tapatalk and it shows the message(s) regardless.
