----------------------------------

Project Description

Mod Tools is an addition to vB which adds a couple of handy features, but mainly expands on making moderation easier, also implementing AJAX for streamlined control.

Features

Post History

Moderation is from time to time haulted by the fact an earlier edition of a post is lost forever. Post History keeps a full log of all edits to posts made by everyone from the moment it has been installed. Through this your staff can easily select previous versions of the post, or choose to see them all, solving this problem.

Post Moderation Comments

Post moderation comments are designed to allow your staff to append little notes to a single post which can be viewed by staff and if chosen, the author of the post. Here you can add moderation notes you may usually do when editing a post, but keeping the message away from the public. Or you can use it to communicate with other staff privately about the post.

Thread Bumping

You may want the ability to bump a thread automatically under certain circumstances without having to post in the thread again. The thread bumping system offers options to you, you can set a thread to be bumped if the first post is edited, any post is edited or any post by the author is edited.

Permissions

As expected, all features and tools within the product are under usergroup permissions, and you are free to allocate the relevant permissions to the usergroups you wish.

Of that which I have tested so far; only the 'Post Edit History' is not available in this version.

Is the link to add comments a template edit, cos it doesnt say this in the install.txt file?

Any ideas??
As above; the 'Post Edit History' does not appear to be included with this version.

The one and only template modification (included in the txt file) in this mod is:

Edit the template 'headinclude':
Find:

Underneath Place:

I have installed this on VB 3.6.8 and it works ok.

Harsh. But as i've mentioned...it does work, except the 'post edit history'. Don't forget you've paid zip for this

Sorry about that masiello - completely missed your question. I think it's only the edit post history thats missing, and maybe some minor parts of the other features functionality. The full version has the following features:

Post History

Moderation is from time to time haulted by the fact an earlier edition of a post is lost forever. Post History keeps a full log of all edits to posts made by everyone from the moment it has been installed. Through this your staff can easily select previous versions of the post, or choose to see them all, solving this problem.

Post Moderation Comments

Post moderation comments are designed to allow your staff to append little notes to a single post which can be viewed by staff and if chosen, the author of the post. Here you can add moderation notes you may usually do when editing a post, but keeping the message away from the public. Or you can use it to communicate with other staff privately about the post.

Thread Bumping

You may want the ability to bump a thread manually, or automatically under certain circumstances without having to post in the thread again. The thread bumping system offers both options to you, you can set a thread to be bumped if the first post is edited, any post is edited, any post by the author is edited or manually under thread tools where you would usually execute common moderation tasks.

Moderation Communication

Moderation Communication is an expansion to typical thread moderation tasks, with this you are given the ability to simply enter a quick message, and it will be sent via PM to the thread author, a handy tool so you can keep thread authors in the loop about why a thread was moved or deleted.

Last Edited By Control

If you wish to edit someone elses post, but evade the 'Last edited by' message being update, this will allow you to do that easily. This expansion enables you to choose between the options of default (use forum settings), do not update or remove the last edited by note.

Permissions

As expected, all features and tools within the product are under usergroup permissions, and you are free to allocate the relevant permissions to the usergroups you wish.

The full version will also be updated with new features on a semi-regular basis (every few months, situation dependant)

Sorry i couldn't be more specific (Not really my area of expertise since i didn't do the coding) - Decado

Well... yes, selling a mod usually is a money making venture - it's how we can continue to make mods. But theres a free version here... so im not sure how exactly you can call it a "money making venture and nothing more" We're giving you something for nothing, not quite sure how you can be somehow offended or upset by that?

Oh well, Now i understand why people stop posting free mods on here. ^.^

Just @ Cybertims, come on men, in there you find all for free and coders spend a lot of time to make this, and if this theirs job, and make money honestly, I don't think we need to offfended anyone who offer for free he's good work, talk it trial, talk it demo, talk it free, but the point is "we don't pay for that work"

Sorry my english

In the lite version, thread bumping can't be done manually

As for Post History, that should be functioning within lite, although the edit to show the post history link in postbits is made automatically, It could be failing if you have a rather customised skin. Those experiencing issues with Post History, could you confirm it works with the default vB Skin on your forum?

Thanks,

- Zero Tolerance

Indeed, my bad. Works perfectly on an un-customized skin.

Nice mod guys, thanks

The point is, why have the big lovely introduction and description of the features if they dont even exist in this mod? Mis-representation comes to mind here.

I have installed it, nothing happens or shows up.

One mis-interpretation, and that'd be my lazyness on not editing the verbiage Basically you don't get the control to manually bump threads, other than that, everything listed in the main post is included.

As for style issues, if you'd like to send me a copy of your postbit templates, if your using postbit then it'd be just postbit, or the legacy version postbit_legacy via PM, I'd be happy to debug the issue, this was designed on vB default skin, so customised skins -may- have issues with some of the auto template edits

Thanks Inferno Tech for making this available free - some people are quite ungrateful, many of the Mods here are offered with "no support" - why should your Mod be any different?

Quick question, I'm probably going to install this on our Forum but I'd want to change the "(View Post History) (View Moderation Comments)" to icons - am I allowed to do the template changes to do this?

I installed this on my test forum but there were several issues. Is there any point in posting them or should I just uninstall and move on ?

@Darat - This template is currently automatic, however since a few skins are having issues conforming to this, it will no doubt be changed to manual once the next release is out, which will fix issues reported by users

@Paul - It's worth posting them - we try to sort issues if we have the time, but it's not something we want to feel obligated to do, so we let people know not to *expect* it

I have to disagree, first hand issues, bugs, and overall functionality will be our concern, on both the Lite edition, and any other. Once it is stable though, I can't hang around to answer every question, request, etc.. forever I'm afraid.

But to imply it's because the mod has a paid version is out of order really, I've released a catalogue of modifications on vB.org, not even 5 have paid extensions, and on all modifications I executed the same practice, make sure it's stable and fit for everyone to use, then move on...

Sometimes I wonder why I waste my time here Be thankful for the rest who can appreciate something for nothing.

The issues I had were as follows ;

1. The View Moderation Comments link showed up on registered users own posts, even though they had no permission. If you clicked on it then you just got a blank pop-up (just the proceed button).

2. When viewing edits, the phrase "Rep Power:" vanished from the postbit, leaving just the actual value displayed.

3. When viewing all edits, no timestamp information was shown for the current and original post contents, just the intermediate edit.

I did not try any of the bump features, I was only interested in looking at the post edit side really as I currently use PEH and wanted to do a comparison. I have decided to stick with PEH for now.
