Change Posts Owner

Created by Marius Czyz aka Phalynx.

Tested on vBulletin 3.6, 3.7 and 3.8

What does this modification do?
It can change the owner and date of multiple threads and post. For this, it adds another option to your mod actions on forumdisplay, showthread and search results. After selecting some threads or posts, you can choose the new owner by name or by UserID. "By name" works with the AJAX namesuggestion, we all know it from writing a PM. After changing the name, it rebuilds thread/forum counters and post counter of old and new user. Attachments will also be assigned to new user.

Installtime: <1 minutes
Difficulty: very easy (1 product)

Demo is not available, due to missing permissions on my board.

Please click Mark as INSTALLED, otherwise I will not support you.

I got the message after uploading a number of pdf documents to the forum. I store them in the file system due to the size of the files. they can be a few k in size to over a 100 meg.

I uploaded a number of files and then changed the name of the user associated with the files. When I went to look at the files to download them for testing I get the error. I Then moved the owner of the thread back to the original person who posted the message and was able to download the files fine.

I have previews and attachments as zip files. The only thing this has done is change the users name. When viewing the thread after a change the preview is now a red X and the attachment gives an error page.

So unless this can move the attachments from one users folder to the new one this will not work.

And as above, change it back to the original user and everything is fine.

Really great mod, although I am having one little problem with it. When changing the time on multiple posts at once, vb for whatever reason reverses the order of the posts. So the last post in the thread becomes the first, and the first becomes the last. So I was wondering if there was anyway that the time change could be done incrementally?

So that if I select 3 posts in a thread and tell it to change the post's time to 08 00 00, then that would be the time of the first post, the 2nd post would be changed to 08 00 01 or 08 01 00 (and the 3rd 08 00 02 or 08 02 00)? Do you think this might be possible?

Or if that isn't possible do you know how vb determined the post order, that an option could be put in to reverse the order of post processing (thereby putting things back in the correct order)?

I said it *should* work, I used the word should because of the introduced template hooks. If you are using old templates you don't have the hooks.

Options are not displayed. How do I add them manually?
If you choose to not automatically add both options you have to add that options manually.

1. Disable automatic template edit in the Change threads/posts owner settings

2. Open the template FORUMDISPLAY.

Search for:

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

Add after it:

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

3. Open the template SHOWTHREAD

Search for:

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

Add after it:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.
Great Advice for vB 3.6.8, works fine on that Version but requires this Template Edits for the Options to Appear.

My Best Regards.
