Report Thread Prefix Management

vB Version: 4.x.x Rating: (3 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 25
Released: 11 Jun 2015 Last Update: 07 Feb 2016 Downloads: 134
Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Auto-Template Additional Files Translations  

Overview:

This product allows you and your moderating staff to more easily distinguish between report threads (including those generated by my Profile Reporter) that have not yet been resolved from those that have been taken care of by using colored prefixes for the threads.



Upon installation, a new prefixset is created consisting of two thread prefixes...one for unresolved report threads (bright red) and one for resolved report threads (darker green with strikeout text). These prefixes will only be available in the forum you have designated for report threads, and in the forum you have designated for auto-reported posts if you have "MarkFL: Automated Post Reporter" installed and active. If you uninstall the product, then the prefixset is removed from your database.

When a post is initially reported, the unresolved prefix is auto-added to the report thread. Then when someone on your staff (those with access to the report threads and with moderating privileges) posts to say what they have done to resolve the issue, they will find a checkbox in the "Moderation Tools" portion of the "Additional Options" block on the posting form for actions to be taken after submitting their message that will allow them to mark the report as resolved.



If a report thread has been previously marked as resolved, but another staff member is posting to add additional information and wishes to revert the thread back to an unresolved status, they will find that the added checkbox will mark the thread as unresolved.



In addition, an item has been added to the "Thread Tools" menu to allow your staff to change the status of reports without having to post.



You have the option to record the actions taken by this product in the moderator log. You can choose to record all actions, or just when the prefix is changed without posting, or not at all.

Updates:

Version 1.1
  • Added support for Quick Reply



Version 1.2
  • Added a report prefix toggle button next to the reply button at the top of the page.

Version 1.2.5
  • CSS for toggle button has been moved to a CSS template for wider browser compatibility.

Version 1.2.6
  • Forum counters rebuilt after prefix changes so correct prefix shows up on forum display.

Version 1.2.7
  • Space removed from MySQL query which causes an error for some.

Version 1.3

Version 1.4
  • Bug fixed where checkbox did not work when editing first post of report thread.

Version 1.5
  • Removed template hook from custom template used by another product.

Version 1.6
  • Removed button and replaced with thread tools menu item.
  • Added the option to record actions in moderator log.

To Install:
  • Download and extract the attached .zip file.
  • In AdminCP go to Plugins & Products -> Manage Products -> Add/Import Product.
  • Upload the contents of the "upload" folder to your root directory.
  • Click on "Choose File" and browse to the product xml file that was packaged in the .zip file.
  • Click "Import"
  • You MUST set your settings to enable the mod. Each setting has an explanation of its use.

Would it be possible to have it to where a thread once marked as resolved can be moved to a selected forum?

I'm curious why closing a thread that only moderators can see would be of any value, given that moderators can reply to closed threads?

Moderators can reply to closed threads only where they moderate.

It basically means that most probably they don't have moderator permissions in forum where reports are created.

DBTech has a mod which enables automatically setting all moderators to moderate forum(s) we choose (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=281850 - just not sure if you need pro version or it works in free version).

I just mention this as reminder, nothing else. When we have admin rights, we tend to forget what others can and can't do. I do that sometimes. Too often actually.

Yes, it is easy to forget that not all of our staff has the same privileges we do when it comes to threads.

On the forum I help admin, we have set all staff as moderators of the report forum so they can do what they need to do there. We don't close reports, we simply use the prefix as an indicator of whether the issue has been resolved or not.

It is working fine on 4.2.5

Another mod I installed missed up all plugins, after restoring a backup, this mod worked fine.

My apology.

Thanks!

This one will work for vB 4.2.x, but I have a version for vB 3.8.x.

I really like this mod! Very handy! The only problem is that when you reply to a post, the bottom part where you can check "resolve" or "unresolve" before submitting post, doesn't work (4.2.5). I have to use the thread tools to do it.

Great job!

I use this on multiple vB 4.2.5 sites without that issue. Perhaps there is a conflict with another product?
