Not Supported Uses Plugins Translations  


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This modification has been withdrawn.
vBulletin 4.0.x and 4.1.x are no longer supported.

The feature is already built into the core vBulletin 4.2.x code.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


This is a current version of the popular modification, originally developed for the early 3.x series by Xenon.

Basically, if member posts in a thread where they were the previous last poster, then if the conditions are met, their new post will be auto-merged into the previous post instead of creating a new "double" post.

A number of options are provided ;

Time Limit - if more than xxx minutes have passed since the last post, no merge is done.

Timestamp Spacer - if enabled, a timestamped spacer is added between the old post text and the new post text.
Other spacer choices provided are no spacer, a default, or a custom spacer.

Spacer Colour - allows you to set the colour of the spacer between merged posts (if one is enabled).

Post Timestamp Update - if enabled the newly merged post will have its post time updated to the new time, otherwise it retains the time of the original post.

Usergroup exceptions - Allows you to exempt certain usergroups from the doublepost merges.

Forum exceptions - Allows you to exempt certain forums form the doublepost merges.

IP Address Check - Specifies if the poster IP should be checked, if enabled, the post will only be merged if the user and ip address are the same.

All settings are located in vBulletin Options > Doublepost Prevention.

To install just unzip the XML and import into vB using the ACP Product Manager.

My question is - with the mod included with Vb - does it do the same basic functions?

I'm dling 4.2 now and about to upload it to test site but any outside help would be great!

Unhappy

It's not very cool to have put this hack in the latest version 4.2.0 of vbulletin result resource

Why? you can disable it.

This sets the time limit used by the double post feature. If the posts are outside this limit they will not be merged. Setting this to zero disables the feature.

Wait, yes? This plugin is being automatically disabled when you upgrade from a 4.1 to 4.2 vB installation. I removed this plugin, seeing it's already within the core of vB.

Thats correct.

Bugs in pre 4.2 versions will not be fixed now. For 4.2 itself you will need to log that in Jira.

I think 4.2 has everything except the timestamp. I may release a mini mod for that at some point.
Also, 4.2 will merge posts with attachments, which was never added to this.

Yes, you can uninstall it.

Thats entirely up to the site admin. I think I use 2 hours on CF.
Its set to 24 hours here (and on vb.com I believe). I would not use anything greater than 24 hours.

I disagree, but either way, such comments are completely irrelevant to this thread.

Thanks for the response. I had set it at 60 but I think 2 hours is better.

why in vbul 4.2 has very simple menu?
I think, the option menu this adds on much better than default 4.2 .

I've got 4.1.12 and am holding off moving to 4.2 for a bit so this is perfect. Installed and tested = Love!
