Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Template Edits Code Changes  

This modification allows you to stick a thread until a specified time. Once the specified time is reached, the thread is automatically unstuck. Simple, but extremely useful if you're like me and forget about stuck threads for 6 years until someone finally complains.





Installation Instructions

1. Upload the file located in the /upload/ directory of this release to its respective location in the forum.

/upload/includes/cron/timedsticky.php => <forum directory>/includes/cron/timedsticky.php

2. Import the product file "product-zointstimedsticky-1.2.5.xml".

AdminCP > Plugin System > Manage Products > [Add/Import Product]

3. Smile and stick 73 threads just because you can.


Official support will take place at http://network.zoints.com in this specific forum.

Do you have a team of vBulletin coders locked away in a deep, dark basement where they're forced to code for food or something? Jeez.

Yet another "Zoints" mod that goes on the install list...

Tested the mod on a thread, set it for 9:00 PM to unstick... 9 came and went and the thread was still stuck. Clicked on "Change Timed Sticky", and it was not set for 9:00 PM, it was set for 5:00 PM.

Set another thread for 10:00 PM, and when I clicked "Change Timed Sticky", it was set for 6:00 PM. Is GMT a factor somehow?

I'm kinda confused...LOL

Hmm. Is your server time different from your personal time?

*edit* I see the issue. We'll have a fix up ASAP.

Yes, my server time is different from my personal time, but only by one hour.

As far as GMT... it's -4 hours (until next week when it changes to -5)

And yes this GMT crap has always driven me nuts LMAO!

Will await your fix. Thanks a bunch.

Couple questions:

1. Will this work for 3.5.x versions of VB
2. Does this use permissions? If now is this planned?

Not enough of them judging by his signature

Ok, let's try that again. My sincere apologies for the trouble. 1.2.6 is now available.

1. Yes, please see my sig for the proper version.

2. How would you apply permissions to this? Meaning who is allowed to set a timed sticky?

Heheh.

I must say, it's kinda neat to have the creator of vBGarage installing some of our mods
