[Ajax] Check for similar thread before posting a new one

Developer Last Online: Sep 2010 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 3.8.0 Rating: (56 votes - 4.71 average) Installs: 635
Released: 13 Jan 2009 Last Update: 13 Jan 2009 Downloads: 3794
Not Supported Uses Plugins Auto-Template Additional Files  

Hi there!

I decided to give my old Add-on a little update.

You love the 'similar threads' function and you are sick of duplicate threads just because your users don't use the search function?

Why not just combine them?

This Add-on will grab the thread title the user typed in and it will load a small box (using Ajax magic ) with 5 similar threads just like the 'similar threads' function that you can normally find under an already posted thread.

The box also tells the user to search through the similar threads first BEFORE starting a new one.


Features:
- indicated if you already subscribed to one or more similar threads
- hover over the title and it gives a little preview of the thread's content
- no edits whatsoever needed, just import the product file, enable the Add-on and it works (well, it should )
- you can turn it off for certain forums or
- you can turn it off completely without leaving any code that messes your templates/files
- it can be translated
- don't like it anymore? Remove the product and you'll never see that Add-on again


Known issues:
- none


Things to consider:

It uses jQuery to get the information from ajax.php. jQuery is great and you can do many great things with it and unlike the vBulletin method it's quite easy to understand.
Here's the version I use: http://code.google.com/p/jqueryjs/do...s&downloadBtn=

Just download the file from the location and put it into the 'clientscript' folder on your server without renaming the file.

jQuery 1.3 is out, read this if you would like to update: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showp...1&postcount=27



Installation:
  1. Download jQuery as described above.
  2. Import the attached file using the Product Manager. Go to your vBulletin settings and search for 'Check for similar threads?'.
  3. Enable it.


Important:
It adds 2 new templates, it changes 1 template and it edits 2 files. I highly doubt that it will break you vBulletin but do a back-up and be on the safe side.



Version history:
2.0 -> this release
1.0 -> outdated (made for vB 3.6.*)

Can You rebuild this plugin to work with "Automatic thread tagger" (with "Ajax" function active).
Now if You have active "Ajax" in "Automatic thread tagger" searching for similar threads doesn't work.

IMPORTANT NOTICE


This is for people who cannot find the options, all I help you out with something that took me hours to find because of a simple wrong by the developer

The developer is says, Go to your vBulletin settings and search for 'Check for similar threads?'.

Which is Totally wrong... Took me hours to find out
!!

Here is what you should do after its Installed:

1: Go to your ADMINCP,
2: Click on vBulletin Options, and Choose vBulletin Options
3: No you should look for "Message Posting and Editing Options"
4: Now you should be in the right place, Look for "Check
for similar threads?
" And Wolla!

Enable it from there, and you are good to go! Go back and try to make a new thread!
Good luck

Ps, THANKS TO SIMON Lloyd

I wanna THANK Simon Lloyd for taking his time and wanted to help me with this! He is a professional Coder as I have seen some of his works, and when a person helps others out, thats something we should never forget! SO THANK YOU VERY MUCH SIMON!

Simon have some great Products and Addons

Finaly i got it to work. I had to choose "--Show all settings--" to be able to see the Check for similar threads? setting.

But the "similar threads" box is way to big, and if i change a value to make it smaller something else like the PM box also get smaller.

Can't figure out for the life of me how to change the limit from 5 to 10, or something else. I want to show more than 5 similar threads.
