Alright, this Modification is a port of my 3.0.0 Version here.

Short description:

This mod allows you and your moderators, to post hidden posts, which will be visible just to your staff, but not to the users, which will allow you to have comfortable conversations about an issue directly within a thread, withoput users noticing.

There is no more to say. The modification is installed here since a long time and no problems appeared, but i still consider it as a beta version, right now, until usertest have approved it as well

Enjoy

This works in at least 3.7.0 beta 6. With a basic install, and minor modifications, it works fine. The only thing out of place is I see a notification upon posting that says
This post is a duplicate of a post that you have posted in the last five minutes. You will be redirected to that thread.
The changes I made were as in post 97 above and I've modified the install instructions (this works for my site, but may or may not work on yours.

I get no db error with it. The error you see about being redirected to the thread is an ajax issue. You get the error when you try to submit the post more than once. If you refresh the page after submitting the post the first time you will see the post is there.

Any idea who to center the text for the postbit on the date info line?

Do you have ajax turned off then? I was using the quick reply.

Actually, the correct fix would be:


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

It automatically redirects me, as it is designed to do.
My fix works as well

I have the fix for the db error email that you get when you post a hidden post. Find this code (in the newpost_complete plugin):


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


And replace it with:


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


The code has been verified and it works. It now removes the hidden post from the moderation queue and does not send any db error emails. It wasn't working right on 3.7.0 beta 6. Thanks to Marco for the type code.

Has anyone gotten this to work with the editpost at all? It would be nice to be able to hide a post that has already been posted.

I made some of these changes...and it`s working in my testboard (3.6.7),
but I would like to use it for more than moderation !

It is shown as a post to moderate, but if I use the Link

....modcp/moderate.php?do=posts#posts

there is nothing.

It`s great that ist is not "really" to moderate for that what I want to do with it, but how do I get thes Symbols away ??

Hi.

I got it working in 3.8.6, but I had changed it so it doesn't add to the moderation queue at all, but uses a different value (than 0) for VISIBLE, and changed a few things to accommodate that.

The problem is how to disable email notifications when a mod or admin checks the Hide Post box and submits a quick reply?

If it was already mentioned here, I didn't quite get it, sorry
