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.

Features
- Can change owner and date of selected posts and threads (including database attachments - it will not move file attachments)
- Can change owner to unregistered user and back
- Can accept user id and username
- Username input is driven by AJAX
- Post count of involved users will be increased/decreased
- Thread and forum counters of involved threads and forums will be rebuild
- Supports inline moderation
- Makes use of $template_hooks, hooks and simple group permissions
- Every change will leave a notice in moderation log

Features for future releases
- Incrementally change time, f.e. first posts is 12:01:01, second one will get 12:01:02h, third one 12:01:03h....
- Moving file based attachments to the new user


How to install?- Simply import product

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.
Running 3.6.8 Pl2 and had to follow the above instructions to manually add the options. It all showed up fine.
My test user (registered forum user - usergroup #2) was assigned moderator permissions and was able to successfully alter the thread author even though usergroup 6 was the only usergroup assigned permissions. Is there a way to prevent forum moderators from having the ability to change a threads author ... or have I bulllsed up somewhere?

Thanks for this mod. I'm using it on my site to change the date and time for my RSS news (when an RSS feed is added for the first time all the news get the same date and time). The mod is working great, except for some minor problem with the time. For example, if I want the new time to be 6PM I need to set the time to 12.00 with this mod.

Looks like this hack doesn't account for apostrophes. I get a DB error when the username has one in it.

Works great (3.7.4), it changes the owner of a post great.

But it misses the post edit history!

For upgrade, just to overwrite product?

Another question...I have vBulletin v3.7.4 PL1, could I install this MOD version for vB v3.8, or I must first upgrade vBulletin to v3.8 and then uninstall this MOD version before install this MOD for vB 3.8?

Yes, they are the same except for the productid.

By importing a mod that already exists you will be asked if existing one should be overwritten.
