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.

This is a great mod. The only thing missing is the ability to subscribe the new owner to their new thread.

For example,
- create a thread >
- change owner >
- subscribe new owner to the new thread >
- and then when it gets replies, the new owner will be made aware of it.

Right now you'll have to email or PM the new owner, otherwise he/she will never know it exists.

I'd code it myself, if I knew how.

The permission to change author is bound to the ability to moderate a thread, so supermoderators should be able to use it over the whole forum - beside the usergroup defined in settings.

Has this mod been tested in 4.2.3?

I've never installed a mod, can you provide directions?

Try the product to which Chris (ozzy47) linked to above.

Be aware though that in that product's thread, a vB 4.2.3 user reports that a deprecation error arises because of the PHP split() function being used, so you will likely have to edit one of the plugins to use the explode() function instead.

Given that you state you have never installed a mod before, I am guessing you may need help with this, so if you want, create a temporary admin account for me on your site, send the login credentials to me via PM, and I will see if I can get it to work on your site.
