Moderator Checkpoint System

For boards with a large moderating staff, it can be difficult to know who has checked what post and which threads are completely checked. The goal of the Moderator Checkpoint System is to ensure that moderators don't read over the same post(s) twice, leaving them to spend this time checking other posts/threads.

The core functionality of the Moderator Checkpoint System (MCS) is the ability (for those with appropriate permission) to mark threads/posts as having been "Checked" - indicating that no further action is required and the thread(s)/post(s) has/have been given the OK by a Staff Member. When a post is marked as checked, the checking user's User ID, Username, and a timestamp is stored in the database. This information then appears on the checked post(s), and the post will change markup (depending on your customizations through the included options) indicating the post has been checked. This process is, of course, completely invisible to the community at-large, and only those Users with adequate permission will be allowed to Check/Uncheck and view Checked posts/threads.

Because some Moderators may like to browse forums normally, a feature has been integrated that will allow each user to Enable/Disable viewing the forum in "Moderation Mode" at their leisure. Disabling Moderation Mode will return the display of posts/threads to their normal state.

Features
  • Forumdisplay
    • Threads can be (Admin Optional) colored according to whether they are completely checked -OR- contain unchecked posts.
    • A new column next to "Views" will display the number of Unchecked Posts in each thread.
    • Clicking the "Unchecked" column's header will allow the user to sort threads by the least/most number of unchecked posts, allowing them to see which threads need the most attention.
    • Threads can be (Admin Optional) marked as "Checked", thereby checking ALL the posts in a thread. This is useful for large, old threads which you know contain no problem posts.
  • Showthread
    • Posts can be (Admin Optional) colored according to whether they have been checked -OR- remain to be checked.
    • Checked posts will display the Date/Time they were Checked and the Moderator Username/User ID who checked it. (Unchecked posts will have text indicating as much)
    • Posts can be marked as Checked/Unchecked via Inline Moderation.
    • "Active Checking" is utilized.
      • Active Checking is a feature which each User can Enable/Disable at their leisure. When Active Checking is Enabled, each time the User visits a thread, the posts displayed on that page will be marked as "Checked". The idea is that when in Active Checking mode, the User is actively reviewing the posts that they are reading, thus each can be marked as Checked.
    • Newly Checked Posts can be (Admin Optional) colored to indicate their recent activity. This coloring is visible only to the Checking User and is intended to serve as a guide for them to see which posts they, in their current session, have checked.
  • Update Counters
    • If you ever feel your counters (Unchecked Count per Thread) are off, there is an Update Counters feature included in the modification. To access this feature, go to your AdminCP -> Maintenance (Very bottom) -> Update Counters -> Update Checkcount Counters (Very bottom).
Installation
  1. Import the Product XML file.
    1. (a) IMPORTANT: THIS PRODUCT ADDS COLUMNS TO YOUR DATABASE'S POST TABLE. IF YOU HAVE A LARGE NUMBER OF POSTS, THE IMPORT PROCESS WILL TAKE SOME TIME (AND MAY APPEAR TO HANG); IT IS *IMPORTANT* THAT YOU DO NOT EXIT YOUR BROWSER DURING THE INSTALLATION PROCESS
  2. Follow the instructions included in the ZIP archive to edit your templates.
  3. Configuration Options are accessible through AdminCP -> vBulletin Options -> Moderator Checkpoint Configuration. Permissions are accessible through the Moderator Permissions panel (AdminCP -> Forums & Moderators -> Show All Moderators -> Edit Permissions.

How hard would it be to hack this so that the color of unchecked posts could be changed per style? Any idea where to start?

Thanks

Nevermind, I figured it out. You can just change the code a bit in the threadbit template to get the background color from a class instead of from the admincp options. And, to clarify, I'm talking about changing the background color for the thread title cell in the forumdisplay per style. Saying "unchecked posts" was kind of vague and inaccurate.

I can explain more if the coder is ok with it (it doesn't say the code is reusable) and anybody needs to do this. It seems he hasn't been around for a bit though.

I understand the mod is supported, but I see no support for the last... few months.

I installed the mod when I had vBulletin 3.7 and it worked. Now, with 3.8.2 just doesn't show anything and the "enabled/disabled" doesn't appear at all. Any suggestions, maybe a version for 3.8?...

Unsure Cybertims. Every time I log in mine is always on disabled. May be a java cookie thing.

I can't seem to assign the system to usergroup 7 : moderators. i made their persmissions but they still dont see the menu button under login section.

Anyone have an idea how I get the "Checked by admin at xxx" message that appears in the posts checked to display in the forumdisplay (threadbit template)?

I tried the variables $thread[checkedbyu] & $post[checkedbyu] and both do not work.

Anyone got a solution or idea for this?

It's not in usergroup permissions. It's in the individual moderator permissions for each moderator. So, you'll have to change the permissions for each moderator. But, once you do it the first time, then all you have to do is remember to set the permissions for future moderators when you first add them.

Go to AdminCP > Forums & Moderators > Show All Moderators then click "edit" for each moderator that you want to change. You should find those options towards the bottom of the permissions.

You can also do this from the "Forum Manager" dropdown for moderators. It brings up the same mod permissions screen.

working on me, 3.8.4

but the only thing is threads do not change color like this



EDIT:

everything works when i apply to the default style, but in my other style won't work with the forumdisplay coloring...

EDIT:

it works everything now, this is what i do

In the original instructions (ThreadBit) :

Find:

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

Replace With:

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


i changed to


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