What Does This Hack Do?

This is a hack that adds an extra option on the Search this Thread drop down list on the first post of a thread (along with all the other thread tools) which allows your members to search for their own posts within a thread they have posted in, just like here at vb.org.

As an added bonus (thanks to Michelle for the idea), unlike the version here at vb.org, you have the option to check if a user has posts in the thread they are in and not display the link to users who do not have posts (why show the link if there will be no search results?). Please note, if this option is enabled for a usergroup, it will add 1 query when a user from that usergroup is viewing a thread.

There are no file or template changes at all, and is fully phrased.

DEMO: Click on the Search this Thread or Search this Mod drop down list and select Find My Posts in any thread you have posted in to see it in action.


vBulletin Version Compatibility

This hack can be used with vBulletin versions 3.6.0 - 3.8.8.

I was just being lazy, global is the default phrase type when creating a phrase, and at the time I just could not be asked to change the phrase type

I will update it and release an updated version later.

No need to upgrade if you don't want to, there is no added functionality, just changed phrase types to the correct ones.

Yes, it is just a simple hack that displays an extra link, nothing fancy. There are no queries used to determine if a user has posted in a thread or not.

As mentioned in the previous post, it did show the link regardless. Now thanks to your idea, I have added an option to check if a user has posted in a thread and display the link if they have, otherwise it will not display.

Thanks Michelle

Update: v3.8.003
-- Changed: Installation Instructions
-- Changed: Screenshots
-- Added: SQL query to check if a user has posted in a thread, and code display the link if there are posts
-- Added: 1 phrase
-- Added: 1 bitfield option

Works in 3.7.4 as well but I've also included the following code and added it to the quicklinks dropdown menu so members can find all their posts on the forum and not just a thread.

The code I used is as follows:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Used the above after the following line within the navbar template:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Thanks to the original poster for this code addition.

Regards
