Old Thread Notices by BOP5
Mod Version: 1.2, by BirdOPrey5 (IB Staff) BirdOPrey5 is offline
Developer Last Online: Feb 2019 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 4.x.x Rating: (12 votes - 4.92 average) Installs: 65
Released: 22 Jan 2011 Last Update: 11 Jul 2011 Downloads: 285
Supported Uses Plugins Auto-Template Re-usable Code Translations  

Latest Version 1.2.

This mod will display a notice at the top of any thread that is over X number of days old. You can choose whether you want to start counting from the date of the first post or the date of the last post. You can also choose to disable it on sticky threads (good if you use stickies for official forum business), disable it in closed threads, disable it in specific forums, disable it for specific threads, or disable it for guests (New in Version 1.1).

The purpose is obviously to stop bumping of old threads unless the user has a good reason. It's also a good way to notify whoever is reading a thread that it is old so they don't think a bumped thread is recent and reply to it without checking.

There are two phrases and one template to give you total control on how the notice looks and what it says.

Full instructions are included in the .zip file.

This was tested on 4.0.8 and 4.1.4 and should work with all 4.0.x/4.1.x versions. It will NOT work in vB 3.x. There is a separate version for 3.x here.

Live Demo: http://www.juot.net/forums/showthread.php?t=47981 (VB 3.8 version)

Note: The rounded borders shown in the screenshots will not work in Internet Explorer, they will show as normal square borders in IE.

Thanks all. I made one quick update because I forgot a feature I wanted for myself. Version 1.1 now lets you disable the notice for guests (since usually they can't reply anyway.)

Installed. Very nice feature.. Should be a default Vbulletin option.

Future mod request. Allow option to "prevent" posting in a thread that meets the criteria. Sort of like a "virtual thread closed" feature.

This mod auto closes old threads and has been reported working on VB 4.0.x.

I will make an update to version 1.2 but for now you can go to Admin CP -> Plugin Manager and edit the Old Thread Notice Template plugin.

Replace it all with: [edited January 24, 2011 with fixed code]

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

Click SAVE.

Now edit your SHOWTHREAD template... put the following line:

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

Anywhere you want... For Quick Reply I suggest right above:

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

Anywhere you put the code in SHOWTHREAD will show the old thread notice.

If you want to remove the built in notice at the top of the thread, back in the plugin, comment out the applicable line, make it:

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