Mark Threads As 'Solved'
Mod Version: 1.0.1, by Eric (Coder/Designer) Eric is offline
Developer Last Online: Jul 2019 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

This modification is in the archives.
vB Version: 3.6.7 Rating: (25 votes - 4.80 average) Installs: 269
Released: 08 Jun 2007 Last Update: 12 Jul 2007 Downloads: 1122
Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Template Edits Additional Files  

3.7 - 3.8 VERSION RELEASED, HERE

What is this!?
This modification will allow you & your members (based on usergroup permissions) to mark a thread as "Solved". It will add the prefix "[SOLVED]" to the thread title, and if set in the admincp - it will also close the thread.

This mod came about, around a year ago - with this thread. But I never released it... until now.

Current Version
1.0.1

Features flagged for future version(s):
  • Thread starter can choose to solve a thread, and input the username of who solved it - that user would recieve rep. points. (admin-configurable amount of rep. points)
  • Given the above - include count of threads a user has solved in postbit & profile
  • Possibly figure out a way to automate everything on install - so there are no template edits.
And anything else that is suggested

Will this work on x.x.x ??
Unless otherwise stated, this will work on all 3.6 versions. I've not tested this on 3.5, but not much changed from 3.5 to 3.6 in this hack - so it should work on 3.5 as well.

Sounds cool. How do I install?
  1. Extract the zip, you should have the following directories/files (in the "upload" folder):

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

  2. Upload the files/folders keeping the same structure.
  3. Import the product, product-solvedthread.xml
  4. Make the following template edits:
    SHOWTHREAD

    Find:

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

    Replace with:

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

    Find:

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

    Replace with:

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

  5. Set options in AdminCP > vBulletin Options > Solved Threads
  6. Edit Post / Thread Permissions > Can Mark Threads as Solved for each usergroup.

Upgrading
To 1.0.1
  • Re-import the product, product-solvedthreads.xml, with "Allow Overwrite" set to yes
  • Upload and overwrite solved.php
  • Make the following template edits:
    SHOWTHREAD

    Find:

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

    Replace with:

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

    Find:

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

    Replace with:

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


That's it! Enjoy!

Looks interesting.

Can this be set to only work in certain forum areas?

Cheers

At the moment, no. But I plan to have it on a per-forum basis in a future version.

You can reopen a thread the normal way - but it will still remain as '[SOLVED'].


I'm making a list of features I'll be adding to future versions, any and all suggestions are welcome.

is it possible that the author of the thread can mark the thread as solved (for a support forum etc.)
so not only mods . and if possible that the autor can select one of the users who replied (actually solved the problem) and then sign the thread as solved. The member(s) who solved the problem then get extra reputation

Yes, the thread starter can mark their thread as solved, as long as you set the correct usergroup permissions.

That's a good idea. Yet another feature going on my list for another version

Thanks all I'll try to have a new version out soon.

Yup. As soon as per-forum permissions are a feature, I'm installing this! This is exactly what I've been looking for!
