Not Supported  

Hi all,

This is a brand new addition to my own BB, so I don't even know how my own users will react to it, let alone how you guys would

Hack Description:
  • Posts you have already read in a thread, will show up with their header only (a row that includes the username, post subject and date only). New posts only will appear in full.
  • This is user selectable via the 'Edit Options' page: each user can decide if he wants this option on or not. (By default all existing and new users will have this turned Off).
  • A link at the top of the thread offers to "expand all" posts or "contact all" posts.
  • by clicking on the + sign on a shruk post, it will expand without the page reloading. By clicking on the - sign on an expanded post, it will shrink without the page reloading.
  • this option is available for your IE users only! Netscape users will see no difference and will not be affected anyway at all by the change
How to install:
  • Please download the attached zipfile.
  • Upload plus.gif and minus.gif to your images directory
  • Upload install_contractposts.php to your admin directory and run that script.
Note: there are quite a few changes to make (primarily additions, not replacements) to the vb scripts and templates. The process should take you several minutes, so I recommend you close your Bulletin Board while installing the hack.

Demo:

You are welcome to visit my Bulletin Board, at http://www.atlasf1.com , to see what the additions look like. To test it in full (ie, the option of old posts being shrunk by default), you will have to register and modify your options after you have received your password.

Cheers,

Bira

I think there is still a small problem with the hack from Firefly:


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

must be:


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

The result is the same but in the Firefly Version I get an parse error...

just installed this hack but i need to translate the text used by this hack such as "expand all" or "Contract posts you already read? This will hide the message body of posts you already read, displaying only the post header."

i could not find where they are stored.

how in depth would it be to work an ignore user like system into the same concept as this? where if you have selected to ignore a user, his/her posts no matter the thread would be automatically shunk? just a thought.

I have a problem, I installed it correctly and I don't know why when minimized without a reply title it doesn't give a short of the body of the reply. On here it does show text without a title so why doesn't mine???

You have to add an addition FireFly made. It's in the first couple of pages of this thread.

Thanks so much!

Now does anyone know how to make the [...] work like the plus sign and de-compress the post?

Yep I had this problem after upgrading to 2.2.2. You just have to reapply the instructions and it's fine. Time to read through all the instructions and check again that you have applied every step

After upgrading, just run the install script and choose upgrade to reapply the templates - no need to do any modding of the templates or php files.

This hack is still one of THE best ones around! My members love it!!!
